“Should be ashamed to call themselves a Best Western.”
Reviewed March 25, 2011

This was a very sub par hotel. The location is far from most everything you'd want to see. The rooms are old and depressing looking. The staff is mediocre, and one lady was downright rude. We used their laundry service and they lost a clothing item! The maid never cleaned the sink mirror the three nights we were there. The internet went down every half hour, and one night stayed off most of the day. They had no one to fix it. They don't deserve to have the Best Western name that has a certain credibility to it. They are not worth the low rate. It's better to pay a little more to get better overall service. Whatever you do, DON'T STAY THERE or you'll regret the decision!!

We only stayed in the hotel for night, which was even too long. The booking was made via HRS and included a late check-out at three o`clock. When we checked in the staff told us in avery rude manner that there was no such thing as a late check-out. The first room they gave us featured a defect window that could not be closed. They exchanged the room another, where all windows and the door lock worked properly. But the room was everything but pleasant. Not only was it dirty, ut also parts of the lights did not work. Just look at the pictures to make up your own opinion. Given the location and the staff, we did not feel that our personal belongings were secure at the hotel. The rooms do not feature a save for valuables, so that is recommended to take them with you. The breakfast was not good at all. Besides a very small selection, the fruit was everything but fresh. I cannot under any circumstances recommend this Best Western hotel.

The hotel does not look anything like the pictures on the best western website. It must be from another hotel. This hotel lacks urgently maintance.
The service at the hotel was not good. Wiireless internet was not avaiable as promised, there was a smoke detector alarm sounding for hours, and after complaining about the sound four times, the staff finaly disabled it for good. The cleaning staff also forgot to knock two times, and they even forgot to lock the door while we where out one time.

When planning our trip to Buenos Aires, we decided to choose this one because we´ve stayed in some other Best Western hotels and we knew what to expect from it.
Our susprise was that, for some reason, this hotel do not follow the Best Western quality standard. The build in quite old, and have some maintenance issues. The air conditioning was not working. The bathroom was so small thet the sink is located outside. The room wasn´t completely clean. Breakfast was orange juice, bread, eggs, tea, coffee and milk, way far from the BW standard ! The pros are the free wi-fi internet, the helpful frontdesk people and the location.

The Best Western Central Hotel will meet all of your basic needs without costing much money. If you are expecting luxury amenities you should look elsewhere. This hotel is perfect for individuals who just need to spend a night or two in this district. The location of this hotel is not the best, however inside the hotel you will find it is nice and clean. Our room was small but it had everyhing you could need and also extras you may not find in larger rooms (small refigerator and microwave). Overall the room was cozy and warm. Service was good at the front desk, and breakfast was great as well. Also I recommend the pizza place across the street (called el Falaron). They have excellent pizza!!
