    Everything was OK. Breakfast was ok. Cleaning was fine and the free Internet connection was just great. The hotel is in the city center!

    We just think that even if the hotel was in the center, in Buenos Aires the center is not the best option. This area was a bit unsafe but nothing happened with us.

    From the hotel it is quite easy to get to other places in BA and it was not expensive. However, for about the same ammount it is possible to stay in a hotel with better location (microcentro) or to stay in a hotel that offers better rooms. But for the price charged, I guess they offer a reasonable breakfast, good service (very helpful receptionists) and a very good hot shower.

    The rooms are a little old.

    The location was good

    Extremely noisy air condition system. We had also a "blind" room

  • Couple

    Clean room and bathroom, nice hotel, just like a 3 stars must be. The breakfast was a little poor in variety, but included in the rate (with too many options of hotels, made the difference). Tv Cable. Wi-fi for free but for only 30 minutes a day... and a little slow (most of the hotels you must pay from usd 14,00 for 24hs of connection), but enough to do what you have to do. The air conditioning worked very well. Staff friendly and helpful. The location isn't the best, but not the worst... near by the "Congresso", between the Subte (subway) stations "Saenz Peña" and "Congresso", with a lot of restaurants options. I do recommend! Worth the price (paid usd 70,00 for the suite with jacuzzi).

    The location. As I said, not the best, but not the worst too... you can walk around at night, just avoid the "Plaza" in front of the Congresso (during the day is just ok)...

    The hotel was great! The location is perfect, you can go anywhere in a short time. We had a great experience and the staff was really helpful! Everything we asked for was taken care of instantly. Bonus: there was always someone, who spoke English. If we are ever going back to Buenos Aires, we would definetly take this hotel again!

  • Group of friends

    The lack of communication between the staff. The nauseous smell after the rooms were cleaned. The noise of the vacuum cleaner in the hall. Problems with the hot water.

  • Group of friends
    10.0

    Great location, friendly helpful staff, good value for money hotel

  • Couple
    9.6

    Location is excellent, close to the congress hall on Rivadavia with a subway station 100 meters away. The room was very spacious, breakfast was good (in comparison to others in Argentina) and the room was always very clean. Good price for this hotel, much cheaper than others in the area. Some reviewers complained about the neighborhood, however this information is mistaken since it is almost impossible to walk in the Centro area and not find homeless people, drunks and addicts. That's why the there are police officers everywhere in BA.
