“great location”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

This hotel is situated about 50 meters from Av de julio and is parralel to the beautiful Av. de Maju.This location gives you the advantage of avoiding the trrafic noise as the hotel is located in a small street, yet you are close to all the major attractions.
The obelisc is about 7 minutes walk,the "Casa Rosada " and Plaza de congress are only 10 minutes walk.Porto Madero and Riccoletta are only 20 minutes walk.
The hotel is in an old european style mansion,and the lobby is a bit shabby,but the rooms are very clean and comfortable.All rooms have airconditionnning and fridge,some have a safe.The staff is very helpful and will arrange for you trips and transportation in a very reasonable price and very good quality.The only disappointments was breakfast.Nothing looks like what they advertise,but still we managed.there is free Internet in the lobby. There is a Buffet restaurant near the hotel where you can eat all the meat you want for 49 peso per person.

Room Tip: don't take rooms on the upper floor (no.5)the heat from the roof bits uot the airconditioning ef...

The hotel is old, true. The staff is not the friendliest people you will ever meet, true. Breakfast is not outstanding, true. However, it is cheap and centrally located, which was all I was looking for last time I traveled to Buenos Aires. If they maintain the rates, I would go again.

My fiance and I stayed here in June '11 for 8 days and in case you can't be bothered reading the whole review..I would NOT recommend this hotel.
For those that can, here's our reasons:
-The staff was uninterested,careless and unwelcoming. We stayed here for many days and got a chance to see various employees many times at different times of the day. None of them would greet us, or say hi or even make eye contact unless we did first. If it had been 1 or 2 nights then fine, but 8 nights and not notice or act like this EVERY time?Not nice.
-The breakfast had a bit of a selection of things but was very poor quality. The staff overlooking breakfast seemed more interested in getting people out so they could clean up.
-The bedroom was quite small however it did have a sort of small couch area with a mini fridge and storage area.
- The whole place seemed clean but the hotel is old, this is far from being a boutique hotel as someone earlier mentioned.
The only positives are that this hotel is in a great location and the bed was comfy.
So all up, I definitely wouldn't stay here again and would not recommend it. I'm sure there's many more options in Bs As where you can get more value for your money.

I stayed here on my first visit to BsAs. On my 5 subsequent visits, I stayed elsewhere. I prefer the kind of hotel room where you can walk into and do not have to climb over the bed because the single suitcase has taken up all the floor space.

Some friends and I decided to spend 8 days at Argentina having fun, our idea was to find a hotel in a decent location from where we could explore this amazing city and we were looking for a fair price. My friend found a travel agency that offered a package with flight and stay included, well we went for it without checking references for the hotel, bad idea.

ARRIVAL: When we got there the location kind of scared us, the street is narrow and the buildings look abandoned, we were lucky it was near to Avenue 9 de Julio, Buenos Aires' main avenue, so it was easy to get taxis and run from that creepy alley. The room was ready when we arrived, so we went straight up.

HOTEL/CONCIERGE: The hotel is kind of scary, the elevator is really old and noisy and the halls are dark. The doors don't really lock and you have to force them to open and close, we were lucky to get a room that was kind of a "suite" with a small sitting area and a balcony, so we saw the street and some of the city out there to the left, since we were on the third floor. I pity whoever has to stay at the other rooms that are smaller and have almost none natural light.The "concierge" service was even kind of helpful, the hotel infra structure was what ruined it all.

STAFF/SERVICE: The staff tried to be helpful, they appeared to be friendly but there wasn't much to fix, even the breakfast was a disaster. I've been to bad hotels but this is among the worse. They also had horrible bathrooms, small and dirty, they didn't really care I think.

LOCATION: Although the street was kind of scary it was close to the subway and near the main avenue of Buenos Aires, so we had a decent location and public transportation nearby. A few landmarks were near as well.

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Please do avoid this hotel, it is old and dirty, doesn't look safe and the restaurant service is terrible. It is far from the business district and I'd advice families visiting Buenos Aires to stay at the Recoleta or at Puerto Madero, there is no advantage in staying near to the city center. If you are brave enough to stay at the "Gran" Hotel de la Paix go ahead, but just take it if it's absolutely your only option.
