Rochester Hotel Classic
Ranked #104 of 443 Hotels in Buenos Aires
Reviewed January 25, 2013

The hotel is very centrally located.
Only 60 metres or so to the subway( Metro Station Lavalle) and very close to Florida and
Lavalle Street.
The street itself (Esmeralda) feels a little bit uneasy but the room i excellent and the
front desk personnel is very friendly and helpful.
A huge annoyance for me was the the extra Wi-Fi charge .It is about time hoteliers realize that
this is an essential service and must be either included in the price or be offered for free.

Everyone was very courteous ,polite and helpful,A big thank you to the staff!

Room Tip: As for the Deluxe room.Avoid a room facing Esmeralda Street. The rest of the rooms face a very ugly...

This hotel is exactly as described on their site. The staff is extremely friendly and they all speak English. The front desk was helpful with suggesting things to do, restaurants, directions, etc. The rooms were clean and our triple had 3 double beds which provided for comfortable sleeping. Breakfast and wifi were not included in our room, which was a disappointment. This area is not the safest, however if you know you want this area, then the Rochester Classic is a good choice. They also helped us arrange for transportation to the airport at the end of our stay.

Finally, our buffet breakfast service is not included in accommodation rates, thus allowing us to offer special rates. Likewise, we give our guests the opportunity to include said service for an extra charge.

Great location. Few blocks from Florida and Puerto Madero. Staff were excellent. The room was very clean and quite at night, but the mattress was uncomfortable (maybe too old). Breakfast was nice. Good choice for the price and for small trip.
