We spent a night at this hotel before flying away for 4 days. Before departing we read in the lobby and talked a bit with the people at the desk for over an hour. They helped with storing our luggage which we accessed a few times, so we interacted a lot with them, particularly a nice young guy who worked with the luggage. We also talked a lot with Julio about transport options to the airport for our 2 parties, and about tango shows. We booked a room with Julio for our return in 4 nights. It was Easter, with light traffic, and we suggested we might be able to do better getting to the domestic airport with a regular taxi than with their fixed price arranged transport, to which he replied we would struggle to get a taxi that day. We had got 3 taxis that day with an average wait time of 12 seconds I would say. It's unpleasant when the staff don't value their credibility and are in effect serving someone else at your expense.
When we returned we were warmly greeted by the luggage worker but there was confusion about our booking - whose name it was under. Julio was at the desk and could not find the booking initially. We said we had booked it with him 4 days earlier, to which he replied that he did not recognize us. Either he is an idiot or was lying again. Talk about the opposite of feeling welcomed.
The next morning the staff were extremely pleasant and helpful.
The breakfasts are served in the rooms only and are mediocre. The rooms are a bit tired and old looking. The area is very nice.
We had very good service at times in this hotel, and also the worst service of a 3 week trip to Argentina and Uruguay.
