We had the two-bedroom unit on the ground level by the pool. The furniture suited the style of the building—old and hacienda-like—and the rooms were comfortable and “homey.” We noticed a closed-in smell when we entered; however, we opened the windows and that quickly disappeared. The breakfast was fine and served in a sunny breakfast room. The staff was helpful... More

Lovely clean comfortable place, simple buffet breakfast included. But there is hardly hot water, I have to take a mildly warm shower. If you don't hurry up, the water turned cold again. It's three block from the 9 de Julio plaza, 6 blocks from Plaza St Martin. Staffs speaks English and courteous.

I liked especially the location is close to everything important in the city. The parking lot is next to the hotel included. A very quiet hotel. It is quite old and it shows that you need to fix it. The reception is very ugly. Full breakfast with a variety of products. But not return to that hotel.

Smallish hotel about 3 blocks from the Plaza 9 de Julio. Quiet, friendly in my experience (we spoke Spanish), and quite stylish. The breakfast was fine, if nothing fancy, and the room was also nicely appointed if not huge. Good shower. The best bit was the peaceful garden and swimming pool reached from the breakfast room. There was never anyone... More

We stayed here for 4 nights, and found it was nice atmosphere and a comfortable, if very small, room.

La Candela is located on a tree-lined, fairly quiet street named Pueyrredon, a few blocks from the main Plaza de 9 Julio with its attractions and restaurants.

“We had a ground floor room which was quite near the reception and en route to the breakfast room. We could hear people walking by and talking in the corridor so a first floor room might be quieter. It wasn't a big problem though.”
