    The breakfast was wholesome and delicious. The staff were fabulous. My airline had lost my backpack and the staff were so helpful to me. I really did rest and recover in this hotel. It was in a great spot and was clean and comfortable. Loved it.

    Pictures weren’t very accurate, as it is a very old building, but that is part of the charm

    The break fast should be varied a little more it is too limited and monotonous. The restaurant should provide at least some snacks to customers on order.

    Comfortable and safe environment, security was very good.

    The WiFi on the 7th floor was not good in the room or consistent. But as I took my computer down a few floors, or to the 2nd floor eating area, it was perfect. So if wifi is important for you, maybe seek a room on the lower floors. Also be aware this hotel is right on the main through-fare beside 9 de Julio, so you will hear traffic noise.

    Location is wonderful and you are accessible to some main neighborhoods (Plaza de Mayo, Plaza San Martin, Recoleta Cemetery, Puerto Madero) and other sites, all within a 20 minute walk. Subway is also a 5 minute walk. The staff at the desk were very polite and helpful, and the staff running the breakfast area on the 2nd floor were also very friendly and helpful. The options at breakfast were good. Thanks!

    It was not comfortable at all. Two twin beds were combined instead of a queen bed for two. It was loud all the time and the walls were incredibly thin.

    Located near to Retiro (20 min walk) Nice view from upper levels Very friendly staff I paid a special (booking.com) fare around 44 dollar per night for a double room. For this hotel on this location, thats an excellent deal. Normal rates, however are around 120 dollar. That is way too much for what the Embejador is offering.
