    The location is wonderfull, rooms are clean, breakfast is very good and our stay at the was very pleasant

    Wi-fi cost money

  • Single

    Good hotel for budget travelers. The rooms were renewed with new floor and wall dressing. And the bed is good with clean and confortable sheets.

    They charge an extra fee for the internet wifi on the room but it works very poorly. Specially at night it stops working very often. Book a double room even beeing single. The single rooms are very small. The staff tried to make me stay in a single room even when i payed for a double. Be aware and keep record of your reservations.

    Location

    Staff was rude and incompetent when checking out, they wanted my copy of the receipt and gave me an attitude when I did not allow them to keep it.

  • Couple
    5.0

    The location is central though definitely not the most pleasant in BsAs

    'Free' Internet is limited to 20 mins a day and in certain aspects it feels more like a 2 star hotel. The room was a bit smelly and the breakfast is not inspiring - it can definitely be better.

  • Couple
    6.6

    The location is great and the staff was very helpful.

    I did not like that my room was really old (old carpet, old bathroom). My friends that were in another room had better comfort and appeal than mine (and we paid the same amount).

  • Group of friends
    5.0

    Good hotel for budget travelers. Willing to pay a little more for a better location next time.

    Poor quality breakfast. Young un-experienced staff.

  • Single
    9.2

    The room was exactly as advertised, small but clean and with a good shower.

    I had no complaints with the hotel. Friendly and accomodating staff and all of the amenities of any other hotel. A great place to stay.

  • Couple
    7.8

    Staff is really nice and helpful. It has a market next to it and it's only a few blocks from Obelisco. My room had a bathtub that I was not expecting, and this was nice. Breakfast is nice but everything is sweet. They always changed the towels if you leave them in the floor. We liked it, it's a nice price and location.

    I missed a mini fridge in the room.

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    This hotel is good value for its central location, quality of the rooms and breakfast and the price. The staff were always helpful, friendly and willing to speak English. It is not the upmarket area of Recoleta but it is priced accordingly. So if you are governed by budget, the area is safe, convenient and taxis are cheap. Our room was on the Avenue so it was interesting and not noisy.

    Good price for a good located hotel

    Room walls in not very good condition.

    The location.

    I have never completed such a review but must warn anybody else against this horrible place. Yes, the location is good but there must be other hotels around.The rooms are ok, though very small with no view. But the staff are awful and it appears as if you are disturbing their more important activities. When I arrived on the 6th floor, they were retiling the whole floor there. In the room, the tv did not work properly (hazy reception) and while wifi was advertised as available, this has to be paid for, but in any case was not working at all when I was there. The worst thing is that the lifts make a loud buzz when they arrive at each floor, and the walls of the rooms are paper thin, so you will be disturbed all night by this buzz. There are loads of tourists staying here (probably not by choice) and so there are enormous queues for the 2 lifts and I ended up taking my luggage down 6 floors by the stairs. A terrible experience.

  • Single
    8.2

    Perfect location for sightseeing, shops, cinemas and theatres. Basic but clean room and bathroom.

    The room was small with noisy air conditioning. No free wifi in rooms although it was free in the breakfast room.

  • Couple
    5.8

    Clean and close to interesting city sites.

    Although we stayed in a non-smoking room, every morning the room was filled with cigarette smoked coming from the ventilation system in the room and in the bathroom. Wi-fi available for only 20 minutes in the hotel restaurant. Only one device may have access per room.

  • Older travelers
    4.6

    Good breakfast.

    Air conditionning -either cold or warm- could not be used because of the smell coming out of it;although they tried, the staff could not do anything about it. Every time we flush the toilet there was a flood in the bathroom. Most of the tv channels had a lot of interference. The elevator 'ping' was very annoying, you could hear it every time the elevator stop at any floor.
