              It is fine.

              Room lay out is odd. Internet service was not available initially , ut resolved the next day.

              Central location

              It needs overall repairs.

              6.2

              The hotel is well located, close to the city center. good breakfast, the price is also fair.

              there is not frigobar in the rooms and the carpet in the room floor was not clean.

              Good and kind personal. Excellent localization.

              Poor internet connection, wireless don't function on the third floor.

            • Single

              Basically the staff performance. It is a good place for people looking for simplicity.

            • Couple
              7.4

              The big bed, and the spa bath

              Location, congreso is a busy place

            • Couple
              7.0

              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.

            • Couple
              6.6

              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.

            • Couple
              5.8

              The location was good

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

            • Couple
              6.6

              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)...

            • Group of friends
              10.0

              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
              5.8

              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.
