Room was very large, with 2 beds, sofa and a kitchenette,and also very very clean. Reception staff were so very nice and helpful. We were given an information sheet on arrival which proved very useful. Hotel is also centrally located and in quite a good area. We simply loved our stay there.

Very clean and comfortable hotel one block off 9 de Julio Avenue (the widest avenue in the world). The surrounding street did not look promising, but the hotel was a gem with its own restaurant. The doors are locked most of the time for security. Ths staff was very helpful with getting us a tango show, getting taxis and making other recommendations. in fact, the front-desk person gave me a book about Argentina to take home. The free breakfast was a nice bonus! The pool wasn't heated or very big, but the rooftop view was fantastic and it was a good place for relaxation.

The staff (and room comfort) made this an excellent place to stay.

Room Tip: Rooms away from Ave. Rividivia would be quieter.

I was very impressed, and pleasantly surprised with how new, chic, and modern Riva was. The historical view from the rooftop pool is amazing. My favourite element was the staff....always helpful and super friendly.

It was everything I love, for a great price.
Close to the main buses and Subte. Super helpful front desk staff (really, we loved you!). Nice little kitchenette, which helps you save on not eating out for every meal. Comfy bed. Hot, hot showers. And, every traveling girl's dream (ok, mine at least): blow dryer.

Some of the complaints by others on here are a little absurd.
"No tables to eat at/no stove to cook with". Look at the room pictures, dummy.
"They never cleaned my room/took out the garbage!" Read the rules before you book somewhere as to what's included.

I checked in at the hotel for 2 nights, the room is very spacious, clean and comfortable.

It was very nice to have the added benefits of an apartment style room over a basic hotel room. The fridge, microwave and kettle were a nice bonus. Could definitely use a grill/oven/hob in addition to make a longer stay more comfortable but for my 2 nights it served its purpose.

Love having free wifi, but the connection for skyping/facetiming was a bit of a pain and kept disconnecting. And it's fabulous to have use of a free computer in the lobby.

The thing that wowed me about this hotel was the customer service. After a 24 hour travelling time from Sydney with somehow the airlines losing my luggage, I was welcomed and offered non-stop assistance with calling the airport and chasing up the airline to get my bags back. I could not have got anywhere with my limited Spanish! But within 30 hours my luggage arrived at the hotel and I am so thankful to the staff here for their assistance.

Great location, great apartment, fantastic service and at a great rate too!

This hotel is quite cheap but you get what you pay for. My main complaint was the noise, we requested a room in the centre of the hotel but didn't get one. We were over the main road and it was noisy all night. It sounded like buses, taxis, beeping, rubbish collections and motorbikes all at the same time and the windows are very thin - take earplugs. If we went again I would not stay in this area, I'd stay in the quieter areas where there is more to see and do anyway. The kitchen isn't much to speak of. However the guys on reception are really friendly and helpful, breakfast is coffee and pastry in the cafe next door which was simple but nice. The rooms were big and clean too.
