Service was excellent. Bed was super big and comfortable. Breakfast was very good. Any problems or questions were quickly resolved or answered. English is spoken by almost everyone. We were upgraded as they weren’t so busy. We ended up coming back for an extra week. Only problem was the same bath with no taps!

Cannot beat the location. Everything I wanted to see and do was in walking distance. Plenty of cafes and shops nearby. The room was large, but incredibly noisy, I had wear earplugs to sleep most nights. Included breakfast is a bonus, but the selection was more of a dessert table than a breakfast table. Used the pool area once. Only one spa was going. The pool didn't seem very clean and smelled a bit funny so I didn't bother with it again.

The hotel is conveniently located, a few blocks from the main avenue (9 de Julio). The average impression begins, however, as soon as you walk in. In typical Argentinian fashion, people in client-facing positions are unhelpful beyond their basic job description. We had asked for two beds in the room, we got one queen-sized bed. Wi-fi is infuriatingly slow and, at peak times, it disconnects constantly.
The worst part, however, is the room we had. It is comfortable but is air-tight. Windows cannot be opened, the bathroom extraction vent does not work and all the A/C does is recirculate the air in the room (and it won´t go under 24oC). Every time we left the room and came back half an hour later, you could tell about the stale air.
Breakfast was mediocre and after one attempt we opted for some of the very good local breakfast shops.
Never used the spa so I cannot comment on that.
I am sure there are better options in the neighborhood.

Excellent location in Buenos Aires. Very clean hotel and Covid-19 safe. The best of it was their staff. Very attentive, customer service focused and always ready to help in order to make you feel welcome and happy. There were a series of issues with my booking and other stuff but Florencia managed to sort them all out!!! Thank you a million for your professionalism and patience!!! THANK YOU!!!

Most rooms have no outside window. So it is constantly dark. The smell in our bathroom was terrible. The staff is ok, the swimming pool is ok but the access is too limited. Breakfast is too busy. Between 9.30 and 9.45 there is no space and at 10 sharp they take the buffet away. Not advisable.

You will get all you can expect from a 4* hotel.
Clean and conformtable rooms, good breakfast and superb location.
Metro stations just 5 block away, few meters from 9 de julio Ave., Colon Theatre, Santa Fe Ave., etc.
It's a good option for your Buenos Aires city break.

First of all I chose this hotel considering the "Blue Tree" brand, a major hotel chain in Brazil, over the local ones. My mistake.
I never had the chance to get in the hotel, they had a "system problem" and my reservation (100% paid in advance) was not there. They send me to a cheap hotel and I´m until today trying to get my money back.
I even talked to the Latin America Director (Yamila Domeneghini) who sent me 1 email, tried to buy me with a one night free and never answered my emails back.

In a nutshell, don´t stay there, neither in any other Brazilian Blue Tree hotels. Choose the international ones or the local Boutique Hotels.

I have never been to a filthier place. Ever.
Photos are an absolute lie, the place is dirty, the chandeliers are actually opaque, so dusty!!!
At the corners of the lobby one can find hairballs, schmutz all over the sink, ceiling infiltrated, rusty faucet and shower. The bed had sheets that looked as if somebody had already laid there. Decoration is poor.
I could not stay longer than 5 minutes in the room.
PLEASE RUN WHILE YOU CAN.
