My husband and I recently stayed at the hotel Lion Dor for three nights in their most "deluxe" room ($250 pesos/night). We had stayed at this hotel on another trip in late 2006. The location is great - on a quiet street in Recoleta - a very safe and nice area with lots of cafes, etc.
The room we stayed in was very large and had a large new bathroom with a full bathtub/shower. The room was clean and had a/c and a safe.
On our previous stay we had stayed in a more modest room (a couple different ones) which have incredibly small showers. I am a smaller/normal size woman (5'5") and I was "at one" with the shower curtain - water also gets all over the tiny bathroom.
This time we decided to pay the extra $ and upgrade and were glad we did. But if you are on a budget the smaller rooms will suffice. There isn't any breakfast or internet but there is an internet cafe just down the street that costs $1.5 (pesos) an hour and breakfast in BA is very inexpensive.
We found this hotel to be a very dependable clean, safe, budget friendly place in a great location.More
