Let's start with the positives - it is located in a perfect place in the heart of San Telmo area and it has a nice patio where you can relax when the weather is nice. That would be it.
Now the negatives. First of all,...More
Location in San Telmo is ideal. A late 19th Century construction built around two interior courtyards, it's surprisingly quiet inside. Rooftop terrace. Brewed coffee-rolls-powdered juice breakfast. Veteran hostelers will not be surprised by the kitchen; poorly lit, poorly equipped. There's no concierge as such, so...More

This is probably the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. We were shown 3 rooms all of which had visible lumpy mould on the walls, so clearly not recent, but of long standing. They are unpleasant & are a health hazzard to anyone, but...More

Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San Telmo is defined by the tango, the dance that made Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many different cultures: a true child of immigration, much like the city itself. Nowadays, it comes alive after dark in the milongas (dance parties) attended by both locals and visitors alike, who dance until the wee hours of the morning. During the day, the antique
shops and classic cafés and bars around Plaza Dorrego dominate the scene. The emblematic Bar Plaza Dorrego, with its green awnings, checkered tile floors, and wooden interiors, takes you back in time the moment you step inside. For true porteño traditions, San Telmo is the place to be.
