Suipacha Suites
Ranked #375 of 440 Hotels in Buenos Aires
Reviewed October 4, 2011

This is by far the worst hotel in its class in Buenos Aires. Other than its good location, everything else about the hotel is wrong: rooms are old, poorly maintained, and smelly. The airc onditioning shook the whole room. I found exposed electric wires in the bathroom, and the electrical outlets near my bed seemed just shy of shorting. The service was unresponsive: 1 bath towel, no hand towel, and a nearly invisible bar of soap. Why pay the price when there are much better hotels in the same price range nearby? This was the only hotel that had rooms available during a busy convention week. Now I know why!

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights.
The location is great and everything is within in walking distance.
I also felt pretty safe there.
I haven't seen other hotels in Buenos Aires, however compared to other hotels in big cities world wide, this one was bed.
Old furnitures, not very clean and uncomfortable bed.
On my next business trip I will definitely stay in an other hotel.
I would not recommend this hotel

I have been many times in this suites hotel, it is well
situated in Buenos Aires, two blocks from Santa Fe
Avenue, near downtown, nice block.
The price was very convenient, booked directly by phone, but the suite is very tired, the curtains old fashioned, the sheets awful, everything need to be
refreshed.
Too bad for a familiar place, good for new tourists,
also bad breakfast, even if the front desk people are
friendly.

The hotel has a good, central location, and one feels safe in the area. The rooms are dismal, old, not clean. The air conditioner did not work and the room was too hot, and the windows did not open and the room had a humid smell. The swimming pool was shut down. The room had a small fridge, a microwave, two gas burners, a sink, plates, etc. - all of it old, none of which we used. Big problem was sleeping in the tiniest double bed seen in years, not easy for two adults used to a queen-sized bed. The hotel staff even when polite is not especially helpful. The breakfast, included in the price, was dismal: fake orange drink, average coffee and tea, a watery liquid yoghurt, decent pastries and bread, unimpressive scrambled eggs. Our request for more drinking water at breakfast was grudgingly fulfilled as it was 5 minutes past the ending time for breakfast. The internet worked fine and was included in the price. The price paid of $90 was simply excessive. Had it been $60 a night, it would have been a case of you get what you pay for -- though even at that price, I would not return here.

This hotel needs refrubishing badly ! the decor is from the 70s. Rooms were nicely sized however looked very dull. Breakafast was not grand either, the restaurant was small to cater for all the guests.

The only plus point of this hotel is its location.

We booked a one-bedroom apartment (junior suite) through Buenos Aires Habitat at the Suipacha Suites Hotel for one week in early March. The apartment is owned by an individual but receives all the services of the hotel (room service, daily maid service, concierge, etc.). My neice, booked an additional junior suite for herself through the hotel website. It was part of the regular hotel-owned accomodations. Both suites were comfortable, well-furnished, very clean and had wonderful beds and bedding. The baths and small kitchens were tiled and modern.

The location of the hotel between Florida Street and Reccoleta and one block off the main avenue was most convenient. There were three grocery stores within 1/2 block of the hotel. The desk staff spoke excellent English, were friendly, and helpful. The hotel restaurant had wonderful food at very low prices. My husband enjoyed his steak lunch as much as anything he ate in Buenos Aires.

The price of the junior suite booked through the hotel was $87.00 per night. Our apartment booked through Buenos Aires Habitat was $450.00 for the week. Our security deposit was efficiently refunded the day we left.

We stayed for about a week in early May, 2005. It was recommended to us by an Argentine friend of a friend here in the U.S. I was a bit concerned because of the other feedback I had seen on this website, but still went there. I was pleasantly surpised that it was actually a nice little hotel for the price. The location was great - walking distance from Calle Florida, the Obelisco, the Casa Rosada, etc., and with a bit longer walk you can get to the Recoleta area (20 min.?). The room we had was clean and comfortable - although the bathroom was teensy. The room had a kitchenette. Try to get a room with a balcony like we did (we got a free upgrade!), which makes it nice for sitting out and having a glass of wine to wind down after sightseeing all day. We didn't have a noise problem at all, perhaps because we were on the 10th floor. But no noise from adjoining rooms. The included breakfast went until 11am, which is good for that occasional late morning start. They had pastries (media lunas and more), toast, dulce de leche, marmalade, eggs and bacon, fruit, yoghurt, and of course coffee, tea and juice. They even let us have breakfast the morning we arrived while we waited 1/2 hr for our room to be ready. They let us into it at 11am, even though check-in is at noon. And their front desk was very helpful. Also, there is a computer in the lobby so you can go online if you wish.
