Reviewed December 17, 2013

Close to everything! Buquebus, downtown, and restaurants on the restored waterfront. Good service and clean. If you book on-line it's cheaper. the lobby is four stars but the rooms are three. Breakfast is great with fruit, coffee, and toast.

Room Tip: Our room faced an interior court yard.....very quiet.

The rooms were small, dark and shabby. The hotel has all the elegance downstairs in the lobby ans the exteriorbut the interior are just lacking quality. Had security shutters that's couldn't be opened by residence had to call the staff just to get air into our room. The aircona had no knobs and also had to call staff to turn on and off. The bathroom was so tiny, so if you are larger than 15yr old then your going to have trouble moving around in the bathroom. The bathroom door had expanded so it couldn't close and ha paint flaking off it. Also the taps for the cold water didn't turn very well or at all. Though its right where the main shopping plaza is and in the centre of town.

I actually stayed in two rooms in this hotel, both of which were worn and tired. The showers were tiny. The only part of this hotel that is 4 star is the lobby. Don't waste your money - it's a good location but I'm sure there are better quality hotels or even hostels nearby. The staff were unfriendly and the wifi was ridiculously expensive.

Very pretty hotel on first entrance but they save all the charm just for the reception. The showers were tiny and the lifts a bit of a pain with two doors. We only stayed one night here but was fine for a late check in and early departure! Staff were helpful.

Stayed for 2 nights. The room was a bit small, but clean and comfortable. The staff were all quite good, but some of the staff spoke little English. The main con was the wifi, it was fairly expensive and the coverage was not great. This hotel is in a great location however, and this more than makes up for some of its shortcomings.

This hotel falls far short of expectations. The shower is absolutely terrible, its almost impossible to shower in such a small space while being constantly being attacked by the shower curtain. Everytime you shower the floor ends up soaked. The room is average, there were large holes in the carpet and the wood was peeling off the bathroom door. Location is good, very close to florida street. Wifi is 50 pesos per day, we were surprised it wasnt free! Not the worst but not the best, i wouldnt stay here again.

This has been a hotel since it was built 160 years ago, with all that implies: charming architecture, basic facilities. There's a dumb waiter serving all floors, on which you can send used room service crockery down to the kitchen, and it is electric. But the breakfast is basic and crowded, the net access WiFi is (reasonably) charged by the hour, and the banging of the elevator cages and doors can be disturbing. Hot water, on the other hand, is copious.

Beds are fine, if narrow. Rooms are warm, but can be aired. Reception staff are helpful, and multi-lingual. Rooms look as though they are gradually being refurbished. Staff will help with booking taxis ahead of time, including to the airport - but check whether you need Ezeiza or the Aeroparque (for domestic traffic and flights to Brazil, Chile, Paraguay and Uruguay).

The location is the hotel's great advantage - a few steps away from Calle Florida's shops and cafes, an easy stroll to the theatres on Corrientes, and the Subte (underground / metro), buses and taxis to everywhere. And don't be afraid to use the services of the money changers on the street ("Cambio cambio?") Everyone local does, and it's worth it. Or bring as many dollars as you can. The Paris of South America may be down at heel, but its charm is still irresistible.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms near noisy escalator doors - N01 to N06
