We were offered a room right away, though we got before check-in time. It was surprisingly quiet and spacious for a Business hotel stuck in microcentro.
We absolutely loved every little detail, from supplies of the room, size of room and beds, free (and fast) wifi internet.
Staff always offered help and assistance. They correctly told us how to reach San Telmo by bus. Breakfast was excellent, though it could be a little crowded if you met a business group like we did. It was an impressive breakfast (you can tell they use quality items .And we could ask for espresso or fresh coffee & milk). We enjoyed 100% our stay at Tryp.
Room is large, it has AC and heated floor in bathroom (useful in Winter). The bathroom should have more light, but we could bear it. One day we had a problem with room lights and we got prompt assistance.
We were located beside elevator, but we heard nothing. Actually, we heard nothing from streets or corridor.
The room had all supplies needed for business or tourist travelers: shampoo, lotion, comb, dental kit, napkins, soap… and other countless items no other hotels offered - or cared for. We asked for a refill for the second night and we got it.
About its location, some people may not like the microcentro. It’s polluted, noisy and it has bad traffic. On the other hand, it’s close to shopping streets (Florida just a block away), restaurants (El Federal is at number 1015) and public transportation (subway two blocks away). We could also reach by foot Puerto Madero or Casa Rosada and main attractions of downtown. From all properties we visit in Buenos Aires (4 in total), Tryp was the best.
At night, streets get empty – except by some people who collect garbage and recycled material. But it seems to be safe, we saw no hookers from north direction.
There is a restaurant in the Hotel (a Booking reservation also offered a free meal at hotel restaurant - great food). Food was great, but prices were not so great ($50 to $60 pesos the main course, $30 to $36 entrees).
Room Price was not competitive, because we could pay less in a Recoleta Hotel ($125 at Tryp against $100 of Recoleta), but we found it worthy.
Cons: none really, but some travellers would hate the microcentro.
