    Very good

    Yes, the hotel elevator was too small and we mostly have to use stairs.

  • 9.2
    Superb

    Air conditioning. It would have been impossible to sleep with the street noise below if the windows had been opened. The breakfast buffet was very good and very well run.

    Front desk staff was efficient but with no personality. Only very basic English spoken.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    The hotel staff were excellent, very accommodating and keen to make our day-stay as comfortable as possible.

  • 9.2
    Superb

    The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel is very well located and close to Florida Calle and the principals tourist activities. Although the taxi charge is cheap you can walk around and discover many coffeeshops. The breakfast buffet was better than expected and room was very clean.

    Fabulous

    The room was big enough, clean and comfortable bed. It was exactly how it's shown in the pictures. The staff was helpful most of the time, they understand Portuguese, helped with city tour and transportation (paid) to the airport. The breakfast was pretty good, with a big variety of food and drink. The best thing about this hotel is the location... Close to the most turistic places such as Pink House, Cathedral, Obelisk, 9 de Julio av., Corrientes av., Florida street, etc. We even walked to Cafe Tortoni at night! Safe area.There's a Carrefour supermarket right next to the hotel and Havanna Cafe half block away. I would stay again for a short visit only.

    There's no free wi-fi available in the hotel. You can either pay 5 dollars a day to use it in the room (horrible connection) or go to breakfast/restaurant area on the 7th floor and get a password to use free wi-fi there for 20 minutes a day. The 2 elevators are too slow and small, only 4 people at a time, without any luggage. One of them was broken for 2 days and most of the people used the stairs!! We were on the 2nd floor, so it was fine, but some people who were on highest floors complained a lot! The hallways were really noisy and old, our bedroom was too hot all the time that we had to use the air-conditioner every night (it was winter and even so the ac didn't work very well). But the worst thing was the super loud noise of our bedroom floor... It was terrible!!! Every step could be heard from outside... Old wood I think. The bathroom was fine, there was a hair dryer but the shower door doesn't close all the way, so the bathroom floor might get a little wet. The outlets in Argentina are different, you will certainly need o take (or buy)an adaptor to charge camera and laptop batteries. We bought one (arg$ 8,00) at Plaza de Mayo, with a guy selling souvenirs on the street. The outlets in the room are 220v but there are no signs, we had to call the reception for information because I almost got my hair dryer burned.

    Exceptional

    Attentive staff, excellent location, clean rooms, breakfast varieties, the hotel is a partner with tango show "Sabor a Tango" and offers tango discount packages, it's very nice!

    To use the wi-fi you have to pay(five dollars) per day.

    Fabulous

    I had one night to fill in and needed something inexpensive so chose one of their 'basic' rooms. It was clean, furnished in a minimal but adequate fashion was perfectly clean.

    The public areas were cramped and chaotic.

    Exceptional

    My room was recently refurbished and very comfortable. The location is excellent and the buffet breakfast generous. Staff were helpful and pleasant.

    Fabulous

    The best of all is its situation. 100% center of Buenos Aires. Is an international hotel. The restaurant is good (although I had only one night experience, because I rather prefer to discover around). Breakfast very complete and good (dishes a bit too small though). Nice people (employees) and kind.Price related to quality fair enough.

    Good breakfasts/excellent location/good price for room

    The staff was very unfriendly/difficulty with Wi-Fi

  • 6.6
    Good

    The location was excellent in the middle of downtown buenos aires. Walking distances to shopping outlets.

    Reception staff was a bit rude and grumpy. False advertising about the free Internet wi fi. They make you pay now for it.

    Very good

    Breakfast was good as well as location in the Micro Centro. Good value if you book at Bookings

    Staff was not very helpfull to us, backpackers...

    Fabulous

    Cental position and a good breakfast included good value

  • 6.6
    Good

    The hotel was very well located and reasonably priced and staff were pleasant. Wifi was accessible in my room, unlike some of the other reviews that I read for this hotel.

    Reception area was small and crowded and the rooms were a little dark and dated. The window, which looked out to the back of the building couldn't be opened due to the extremely loud fans and airconditioning units directly outside. Very very slow lift was a bit frustrating.

  • 6.2
    Good

    Excellent location

    Staff not being very helpful, limited English, always pretending to be busy when you approach the reception desk counting dockets etc. Issue with wi-fi, it was advertised as being free, but it was not available, only upon presenting print-out of the booking letter, free access was given, apparently they've changed the system and charging $5 per day - it was more matter of the principle than the cost
