The Hotel is not clean almost anywhere. From the outside at front, the entrance, the Lobby, the elevators, the halls. The bathrooms are clean, and towels, the room carpets you don't want to walk on it. I won't recommended, unless is an emergency.

The service was poor. The janitor knocked once and just came into my room one afternoon whilst in bed and gave me two sweets and quickly exited. False advertising with sound proof rooms and horrible tasting food. Hotel is big and old. Worse experience ever.

Walking into Hotel Presidente is like walking into a 70´s Argentine film. The hotel is clearly old, but, it has all the good things that good all porteños places have. Good helpfull staff, good rooms and excellent location. The rooms are quite confortables, with an old AC that does the job, a nice bathroom that could use a little update....

Located near the obelisk on 9th of July Avenue, this busy hotel gives clean rooms, a good breakfast, and pleasant service for about $100 a night. Many Argentinians use this hotel. Although the accommodations are worn and less than elegant, if you want to save money, chose this one!!

Very old hotel, probably not renovated since 30 years... it was even dirty in the room and bathroom, very bad smell in the room and wallpaper is breaking off. Decoration also dates from 30 years ago, not just the style but the furniture is really old. The dinner was really bad... the first bad empanadas we had in Argentina (we...

We stayed at Hotel Presidente for 1 night after Aerolineas cancelled our flight. The exterior looks good enough, but everything inside is old and in need of a full refurbishment. I was surprised to read a 2009 review that described the exact same dinner menu that we had 7 years later : salty empanadas, cold ravioli and ice cream. Yum...

Arrived at 03:30 in the morning after Iberia put me up here after cancelling my flight. Reception desk staff was rude. Shouting that I was ungrateful and disrespectful after I enquired whether there was water in my room and told - no. I politely asked if I could have a bottle of water instead of "dinner" at 03:30. I was...

Very tired, dark and drab hotel. Rooms very dreary and breakfast served in the basement with no natural light. Rooms also very noisy as you can hear neighbouring rooms use the shower or flush the toilet. No English news channels on the TVs.

Juan monjelos and Cesar at reception desk are NOT an asset to the hotel. They are both rude and helpless. Simple requests: Like helping to get the suitcases to guests' rooms are too difficult to arrange. I made sure the bags were at the hotel 01 hour before the 07 elderly guests of my group, and all I got was...

I was put here by Aerolineas Argentinas after a flight cancellation. The location is great to move around Buenos Aires by feet but the hotel is absolutely decandent and has not been refreshed in decades. The rooms are old and very noisy. The breakfast buffet is much limited and is mostly made of cakes and sugar rich stuff. The staff...

Staying in Retiro

Neighbourhood Profile
Retiro
Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the port, mean this neighbourhood is never truly at rest. One minute you are walking down a street dotted with ornate mansions and luxurious shop windows and the next you find yourself surrounded by a sea of people racing to catch their train or bus. It is this juxtaposition of never-ending comings and goings and quiet, elegant luxury that defines Retiro, as well as Buenos Aires, a city where sharp contrasts are all around.
