“Depressing”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2012

I'm bummed that our stay at this hotel kind of ruined our stay in Rosario. We came to Rosario not knowing what to expect and figuring we'd stay a night or two before moving on to our next destination. We were so turned off by this place that we packed our bags and left early the next morning.
1) We were traveling for a month, so we needed to find places that had gyms. The "gym" at this place was unusable. First, all the machines - one treadmill and one bike - were old, RUSTED, and rickety. The weight bench was rusted and it broke when I sat on it (I only weigh 125 lbs.) I was afraid I'd get tetanus from working out here. Last, but not least, there were roaches all over the floor. Disgusting.

2) To be fair, the room was clean - that's all I can say. The walls were totally bare and the whole place just looked like something out of east Germany, circa 1987. Breakfast was okay, nothing special.

Booked this hotel last minute over the phone while in Argentina. We were given a discounted rate as we needed 3 rooms. It cost us about $68US a night. the hotel has very good facitlies, the rooms are quite large & comfortable & the breakfast is good.
We can't really fault this hotel at all.

I stayed here for 3 days and wish i'd chosen any other hotel in Rosario rather than this one. Trust me and dont waste your money on this overpriced joke. I wont bore you with all the problems we had but there's plenty of other nice hotels in Rosario.

What can I say...stayed in every single hotel in Rosario and this hotel is OK but well overpriced, they really rip you off if you book on the internet. Just phone and ask for prices and ask for corporate discounts. They charge me U$D140, thats triple they charge normally, and just this really annoyed me! They are well dodgy there. They think they are a full service, international chain hotel but that couldn't ever been a highway HoJo in the states...very improffesional staff, just 1 or 2 make the effort and the facilities are quite new but low maintenance, bad design of the floors and just tacky. The owners are hanging around there in the reception area and they are just annoying everybody...the wife of the owner is just smoking on the reception counter and (im a smoker) but just felt sorry for the poor receptionist there... Small hotel, its just OK...don't expect much and you should be fine! but please don't pay more than U$D50. And its a lot already!
