Villa Victoria is one of the oldest and most traditional properties in the historic part of Tigre. The building from 1900 has seen the old bourgeoisie escape their warm palaces in the city during the summer, to enjoy the breeze of the river and go rowing in the various old rowing clubs that still stand along the Tigre River, as a reminder of those days. The house with its galleries and gardens was an important place for musical reunions and social gatherings. Today, the house stands completely renovated to offer its guest its former splendid charm and personal attention , with modern accommodationsa and comfortable and spacey rooms and bathroom facilities.

I am currently residing at Villa Victoria for several nights, having spent the last ten nights at another lovely villa in Tigre. The facility is lovely, the staff endearing, and the service outstanding and I will return.

That being said, I read several of the reviews here and wanted to offer my two-cents based on my own experiences here and in Argentina in general.

To begin, I wanted to address the post regarding payment/quotes. Strict capital controls, aggressive monetary policy, and blazing inflation rates have been distorting exchange rates in Argentina the last several years with the pesos dropping nearly 54% year on year the last 12 months, 117% the last 5 years and 188% the last decade. As a result, hotels only offer quotes in dollars. There is no “tourist exchange rate,” per se. Anyone, foreign or Argentine, opting to pay in pesos is going to observe rates rising before their eyes. It is the nature of a failing peso.

If you are a budget-conscious traveler and you are not from Argentina, your best key to savings is to travel with dollars purchased prior to your arrival here. You will find that most places offer substantial discounts for those paying in dollars on anything from meals and lodging to souvenirs. Additionally, if you don’t mind staying here weeknights – Villa Victoria is currently offering a 25% discount when paying with cash (with the usual restrictions).

I next wanted to talk about reviews complaining about noise levels here. To begin, one needs to consider that Tigre is part of Greater Buenos Aires, the 17th largest metropolitan area in the world with over 13 million people. This part of Tigre is not in the country; it is not apart from the greater metropolis. Writing for myself, I spent several hours in the gardens sipping wine, time in the restaurant, and of course – nights in my room and I do not have any complaints
whatsoever about the noise level. I had no difficulty relaxing or sleeping while at Villa Victoria.

As to the restaurant, the service was outstanding. The ambiance was very charming inside the restaurant and weather permitting –dining is available outside on a huge porch. With its expansive gardens, the view is lovely and tranquil from both the inside and outside dining areas. The food was more than adequate, pretty much what one might expect from any comparable resort in the USA or Europe. Factoring in the food, service, atmosphere and convenience, I would have to give their restaurant services a 7-8 overall.

As a side note, I was pleasantly surprised to find their Wi-Fi service was great with download speeds averaging over 6Mbps and upload speeds averaging slightly over 1Mbps.

We spent two nights here in the artists house which is next to the villa. The staff were friendly andhelpfull. It was too cold form us to swim in the pools. it is a short walk to the river where there are many restaurants serving good food. The room was comfortable with a nice bathroom and there was a large balcony where we sat out. Breakfast is served in the main building. The main gate is kept locked so you must ring to be let in. If you need a taxi the receptionist will call one. It is very near to the Naval museum and thee Art gallery.
It is very good value for money.

We stayed at this hotel for one night. The rooms are lovely and spacious; the garden is magical, with tennis courts and a swimming pool. The owner gave us some good recommendations on what to visit in Tigre and the delta, and what restaurants to eat at. The trip through the delta she recommended was great, somewhat off the beaten path, ending at a restaurant that was seemingly in the middle of nowhere. If you're going to Tigre (and it's definitely worth a visit), I wholeheartedly recommend you stay here!

Everything was good here until settling the bill. Our entire group were billed in US dollars and given a 'tourist' exchange rate for paying in pesos, even though previous emails showed the room rate quoted in pesos. The maitre d'hotel lost her temper with us and was quite unpleasant during the bill payment process. This left a bad taste in the mouth of the entire group.

This group of young Irish people booked their stay 6 months before their arrival date. At the booking time they were informed that the only way to accept this reservation was to give them a price in dollars, due to Argentina´s financial instability. At check out time, some of them stated they had to pay a lower amount stating that the amount in Argentinean Pesos should be less, considering the "Official Dollar" conversion. At the moment the rack prices were showed to them at the Reception. Due to the fact that some of them insisted in paying a lower price, they were kindly asked to leave the hotel without paying if they preferred. This decision was taken to show them that there was at no point any intention to charge them wrong or more than what was arranged from the beggining. They missunderstood our intentions to arrive to a peaceful agreement. Este grupo joven de irlandeses reservo 6 meses antes de su arribo. En la reserva se le informo que de la única forma que podíamos aceptar esta reserva era dándoles un precio en dólares por la habitación dada la inestabilidad inflacionaria de la moneda argentina. Al check out algunos de ellos quisieron pagarnos menos de lo que cuestan las habitaciones argumentando que el precio en moneda nacional debería ser menor considerando la cotización del “dólar oficial” (en ese momento ya había 4 cotizaciones diferentes del dólar en este país). Allí se presentaron las tarifas del hotel exhibidas en recepción. Dada la insistencia de algunos de los jovenes del grupo en pagarnos un precio menor al real les pedí que se retiraran sin pagar si les parecía conveniente y fue solo entonces que yo creí que entendían que no intentábamos engañarles, evidentemente me equivoque.

Dear Janice, Thanks for your review and your opinions. First night you stayed in Suite Garbo – executive suite. It´s connected to the central A/C system. Obviously we didn´t operate it very successfully the first night. We therefor gave you an upgrade to our suite De Lux the second night. In this suite the A/C is operated by the guest himself. The Split is only two years old and being controlled twice a year. Argentina is not Good Old England. For the security of the hotel, guests and staff all five gates are kept closed. If any guest feels uncomfortable ringing the doorbell we are happy to provide them with keys. Like most other hotels we don´t allow food and beverage being brought into the hotel. Regards Bjorn

My husband and I are visiting B.A. for the month and had read the great TIGRE, Villa Victoria reviews so booked.

We decided to walk from the train station to the Hotel , not realising it is as far away from the station and Sites as can be (no boat even picks up near by) The sidewalk is broken, busy and small - we dont ming a long walk but it was also loud and not a scenic walk at all.

(*Bad location for sites/resaurant ect)

Upon arriving the Gate was locked - it is always locked so you must ask to be let out day and night and you must buzz to be let in....if anyone answers.. we found this very inconvient. The woman checking us in, did not speak english - my husband speaks enough but she answered the phone and just ignored us for 20 min until another woman stepped in asking all the same questions again

**Service unfriendly / average

You are not permitted to bring food or drink into the hotel at all - but dinner is not served until 830 or 9 pm and you must call down to be told what is being served... we decided the first night to walk and find a place and were charged almost 500 peso for an average dinner at a nice restaurant - not many good ones close by (or at all in Tigre - meat is lacking)

The second night we asked Jorge to call us a cab at approx 6pm to eat at Peurto Fruit as when we walked around there were many little/nice looking cafe's - he /nor did the cab driver bother to tell us the Peurt was closed up by this time!!!! We had to walk back again and settle for another average dinner at the TBC Grill Restaurant - terrible service here - we didnt get food until after 9pm.

*Breakfast is pathetic - bread, bread bread..thin ham and cheese - we would of loved a little protein/egg since we had so much walking to do again just to get to the sites*

*food below average*

We had a standard Garbo room the first night - no air conditioning upon arrival - no control in room, a little in the evening.

Second Night we were in Victoria Room - we had an Air Conditioner in this bedroom (just the bedroom) which worked a little.

The rooms were very lovely - great bathrooms.

Pool and Grounds were poorly kept - we kept saying "This was once a lovely house".

If there was more then 4 at the pool it was crowded....more then 3 at breakfast food ran out...

I'd skip Tigre all together and go somewhere else -or just a day trip...

I have visited 40 countries on every continent, and I have lived in 5, being a citizen of 2. I travel fairly frequently and I am considered by those who know me to be very well-traveled. I have stayed in just about everything from a hostel dorm to a B&B to a Motel 6 to a 5-star hotel and all that's in-between, went around the world on the QE2 and have eaten in many places… and I have also spent time living in 3 different South American countries, to date.

This wonderful HOTEL VILLA VICTORIA is the most charming place that I have ever stayed in of all: It's a rather nicely-kept mansion in a fantastic garden setting. I walked to-and-from the main part of town for each of the 3 nights that I stayed there - and sometimes more than once in a day - and I found it a perfect distance. The neighbourhood is actually a quiet residential area, with comparatively light traffic and only small businesses nearby - making it a very peaceful area compared with the downtown part of Tigre. There's a lovely park and river nearby, and the famed architectural gem of the Tigre Art Museum is also close nearby.

More importantly, I found the bilingual (some are even tri-lingual) staff more than helpful in orienting me, pointing me toward reasonably-priced shopping places, helping me find things that I needed, phoning for a 'remise' when desired, helping me know some prices that I wasn't already locally familiar with, helpfully offering tips for my cell phone use, and being EXTREMELY courteous - throughout. I had a dinner served every night, I partook of the breakfast each day, and I was REALLY happy with it - and best of all: This is a very well-priced place that I just happened to find, very luckily. I have raved about it to all of my friends, and I hope they and others will visit it because I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and VERY HAPPILY would go there again, should the need ever arise!

I might add that I was at the front of the hotel along the street and am known for having difficulty sleeping, and yet I slept very nicely on every single night that I stayed there! I also noted an earlier comment indicating something about a difficult walk, and possibly referencing the sidewalks which are very commonly found in many countries in a less-perfectly-polished sheen than one sees in Hollywood or in NYC. It’s not at all unusual to find watching your step part of most sidewalk pedestrian travel in a number of countries. It certainly didn’t diminish the experience of my walking to this hotel – from downtown Tigre – at all, for me… and I walked that fairly short distance a number of times over my three days there!

This Avis car hire slogan certainly applies here. The owners and staff go out of their way to make your stay as pleasant as possible. The hotel is in a lovely looking colonial style house set in lovely gardens with a swimming pool and tennis court. The room I stayed in - the Victoria suite - was very spacious with a large balcony and had everything I needed and more. The hotel is also VERY reasonably priced. I only had dinner once and it was so so, but there's a lovely restaurant (Maria de Lugan, nearby on the waterfron, max 10 minute walk). Breakfast was fine with eggs to order, fresh fruit salad and fresh orange juice (so I was happy). I went there for peace and quiet, but unfortunately for me the hotel is situated on a fairly busy road, so it was rather noisy during the day, but very quiet at night. I asked the owners to arrange an off the beaten track trip throught the delta for me, which they did. The next day they asked me how it was and I told them very disappointing. They immediately took action, called the company and made sure I had a new trip, free of charge, that did suit my needs. (That's what I call taking responsibility!). Sometimes the hotel had a slight Fawlty Towers feel, without the bickering Sybil and Basil, and I mean this in a good way. It's not slick in any way, but it has a charming old world feel to it. So sit back, relax and enjoy it!

I went there with my family for two days (one night) to spend a quiet evening and sunny days at the pool. We had two infants and two toddlers with us. When we arrived we were told that there was an event for 80 people that evening, with loud music until 1.30am and fireworks. They suggested we dine out (even though we had even assured the night before that we could have dinner over there) and get back by the end of the event if we didn't like the noise. Haha.
When we complained they told us that if we didn't like it we could leave.
We stayed as we had planned this trip for a while and with the babies it was hard to move around. Dinner was horrible. Overcooked beefs and chicken.
The place is quite nice, though, and the rooms are big and beautiful. If it weren't for the horrible treatment that we received from the owners and instead offer an apology and/or compensation, we wouldn't have been so upset. The rest of the service was cordial.
If you do go, ask if they are planning on having fireworks outside your room at 1am. And ask again, just in case (we talked to them 3 times before going and never mentioned). Or join the party!

Ending up here after dancing in Buenos Aires and Rio was the perfect way to relax before going home. Wonderfull room, Very heartfull and warm host. Beautifull garden with a little older but clean and nice swimmingpool and a tennis court. Host and staff very helpfull to find places to see, helping getting contacts for a privat boattrip in the magic Tigre Delta.
Nice breakfast and all this for a very reasonble price - 45 minutes away from Buenos Aires.
