Great location in Buenas Aires, and excellent service. Alejo was wonderful to work with and he tried very hard to meet our needs. We took a city tour and Tango show from the hotel and the coordination was good but the pick-up times were often not on time by over 20 t0 30 minutes...not the hotel fault but nonetheless a lot of standing around waiting for the transportation to arrive. The room was very accommodating in every way as this is like an apartment so there was kitchenware, and other nice amenities. Breakfast was very nice, overall a very good experience!

Stayed: December 2017

We didn't have a very good experience for the first day. In fact, my bed (we were 3 people in the room) was right in front of the window to the street, so it was very noisy and you could feel the cold entering the room. Plus, the bed was not comfortable at all, you could feel the spring-loaded matress.

The next day, we complained at the reception desk, and the manager was so nice that she gave a room just for me for the next 6 days ! This is how all hotels should handle problems with their guests.

The new room was very big, the bed was far better (normal king-size bed), and I had a balcony But the room was rather dirty and smelly with stains on the floor, sofa and walls. As we were travelling with a group I've seen many other rooms in the hotel with the same lack in cleanliness.

Breakfast is rather simple, there's not a large choice...

Good points :
- Nice location in downtown Buenos Aires
- Very helpful and friendly staff and manager
- Big and well-equiped rooms (kitchenette, fridge, jacuzzi-tub)
- Nice comfortable bed with clean and soft linnen.

Negative points :
- Dirty rooms
- Bad smell throughout the hotel (rooms, corridors, stairs and elevators)
- Breakfast : very simple
- Very noisy
- Bunk beds for additional person not comfortable at all

All in all, I wouldn't recommend this hotel if you're looking to quality, but for economy it can be an alternative.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the interior courtyard, on the upper floors for less noise

when we checked into the hotel we were surprised with the pool in the breakfast room, but why not. We were given a suite with walkin robe, large bedroom and separate lounge and kitchen. Breakfast was modest but filling, the staff always friendly and helpful and the room serviced to a good standard. Overall a good place to stay.

Walking distance to the main places, the main square, main shopping area and the Recoletta cemetery. The apartment is big, although a little tired very enjoyable. Did have a pod coffee maker but you had to pay for the pods, luckily we had our own tea, coffee and kettle. Two lge TVs one in the bedroom and one in the lounge/kitchen area. Breakfast was very basic, no eggs or bacon just toast, cereal and runny yoghurt. Also a strange pool near the breakfast area. Overall we did enjoy our stay there.
