    The pool was out of service and we were not informed either before arrival or upon arrival. This was extremely disappointing as it was the reason I chose this hotel.

    Our room was very nice and the location was good. Breakfast and room service food was lovely.

    I asked for airport pickup when booking and sent several emails, but got no reply at all. Balcony could not open, and such room does not have any window. There is no water boiler in the hotel, so you could hardly have hot water when you need it. Some rooms are small and noisy.

    If you get into the large room, then you will have rich space. Not far from CCK and some historical sites. Some staff are very kind to give us detailed information about subway transport.

    This hotel does NOT live up to a 4 star hotel. And my review is feedback to my expectation to a 4 star hotel. The breakfast was medium value.

    Nice location in central city. But be aware that it is located in a business area and there is almost no local people in the weekends and most shops are closed in the weekends.

    We didn't like the smell of the cleaning products in the entrance , there are 3 elevators which are quite small and slow so we took stairs most of the time , there was only one thin shower towel in the bathroom for each guest (instead of 2) , there was nowhere to put the soap , there was only one water glass in the bathroom instead of 2 , no slippers, very old hair drier, the only restaurant/bar that serves dinner in the hotel has terrible lightning (it is not a warm room at all) , we ordered room service and the pasta was cold , the pool /roof deck was closed one day for a "private function" and we couldn't use it.

    Though clean, room maids came and tried to clean room at odd times - also removed the card that activated the power in room which was very annoying. Swimming pool wasn't the best (needed cleaning) and we were told was only open on Thursday Requested wakeup call on our last day - never happened. We were wrongly advised that calls were free, upon checkout staff were going to charge us, thankfully didnt. TV was a shocker. Small & all spanish speaking shows, they really need to update TV & perhaps look at getting entertainment chanels in english. Noisy at times. Could hear thumping and steps from level above.

    LOCATION was great. Close to a few tourist attractions and shops. Good value for money..though 5star didnt feel it..more like 4star. Terrace was nice.

    Wifi is not well connected in the rooms.

    Location is perfect. Buenos Aires city bus ''Hop on Hop off bus'' main stop & ticket sale office is across the hotel.Most of the historical buildings and The Mayo Square is just with in five minutes walk. Florida & Lavalla main shopping streets and shopping mall are also very close to the hotel.Receptıon personnel are all very friendly.The rooms are clean and comfortable and no noise.Fitness room and spa quite small.

    After several nights stay, great breakfasts and the occasional evening meal we have nothing but praise for this hotel.

    The room was well appointed and spacious. With a minibar, plenty of cupboard space and a huge comfortable bed the accommodation was excellent. The concierge staff were particularly competent, professional, helpful and friendly. The laundry service was exceptional. The hotel was located in the city centre with easy access to many pedestrian shopping streets, traditional cafes and good restaurants. The historic Buenos Aries café, Tortoni, was three minutes walk away.

    There were a few different things: So much noise in the room from the floor above. And notice: the noise was from simple steps, doors, luggage...it seems like the hotel needs an acoustic protection between rooms. (At least for the 619 room) The rooftop pool was promoted on the website but once we checked in we got told it was only open during summer. (It was over 20C outside) Bathrooms toilet too close to the wall making it impossible not to feel uncomfortable. No cable TV on the room. Breakfast: Eggs were cold. And the Cappuccino that was on shown as part of it on the website was actually charged extra. (It's not about the money, but because it made me feel cheated on)

    The staff was very helpful and the hotel was spotless clean!

    - The shower was a little weak. Having stronger water pressure would be nice - The room doesn't have strong lights, so it's a little dark in the night, but not a big issue.

    - Good continental breakfast with fruits, juice, breads, etc. - My room was very quiet and cozy - Staff was always trying to help and smiling - The location is very good, close to Casa Rosada, to the obelisk at 9 de Julio, to Teatro Colon and even to Puerto Madero

    In general, the service at the front desk and in the restaurnt and coffee shop is adequate but lacks warmth and you rarely see a smiling face of a staff member. The head of the breakfast shift at the restaurant is uncourteous and inflexible.

    When one of us was ill we asked the front desk to call a doctor, which they did. The doctor didn't ask for payment and told us that this is settled through the hotel. We expected a stiff bill but when we departed we were told that the hotel will cover the cost of the doctor, as is its policy. Quite rare.

    Bathroom shower was terrible. Adjusting of hot and cold water was inconvenient, even dangerous. The shower adjustment device should be replaced.

    Hotel is very comfortable and staff were as helpful as they could be. However, they knew very little of use to tourists.
