    The shower place was so tiny, plastic curtain was sticking on my body during my shower.

    All staff people were kind. Congratulations! Excelente location. Quiet place besides a city center.

    The only thing if I choose the negative one is that staffs can not speak English.

    It looks like old, but actually, They just preserve kinds of old things so you can feel the past of Argentina.

    The mattress was uneven, the bathroom was small with a plastic courtain for the shower in a rather narrow bathtub so it sticked to your body from time to time while showering. The room we had smelled humidity.

    Location and a nice interior gallery.

    I asked the reception to book a taxi to go to the ferry terminal as it was early in the morning and I didn't want to risk missing my ferry by foot. It was a private driver which cost me 170 pesos for a less than 10-min drive (we paid 140 pesos for the taxi from newbery airport to the hotel, which is much further than the ferry terminal).

    Great location and clean.

    Need to bring the heavy luggage for 8 step steps from ground before reaching the reception desk. No air conditional in the room, they will only swift on the centralised aircond very late at night therefore the room is very stuffy. Breakfast is very simple, however, not an issue here because can always go to Cafe Tortoni next door to have full breakfast. Don't change the currency in the hotel, their rate is not good. Instead should go to Cafe Tortoni next door for the good exchange rate

    The location is excellent, next to Cafe Tortoni, metro station is right infront of the hotel, close to every interesting spots within walking distance, feel safe. The safe deposit key is at rent for a nominal fee of Peso 25.00 for the convenient to securely lock all the valuable belongings in the hotel.

    I was there in winter , but the room was a bit ' too hot at night due to the fact that the air did not circulate much . The decor of the room is spartan , but everything is very clean .

    The location is very good in the center of the city and close to everything. I loved in particular the atmosphere, common areas where to read and relax or work; the beautiful architecture of the building (three floors of balconies on a common atrium) that allows light to filter from the glass roof; the very pleasant silence and complete isolation from the noise of the road that overlooks the lobby (very small and shabby) of the hotel.

    Not a complaint, but observation. To get to reception you need to negotatiate a few steep steps (could be a problem for people with very heavy luggage). Then it is lift to upper floors, so no further problems.

    Very good place to stay if you want to be in the heart of Buenos Aires. Nice inner patio which the rooms face (so, no windows). Rooms are smallish but for a solo traveller (like me) space should be enough. Internet worked well, staff was very helpful and able to arrange transport to Ezeiza Int'l Airport. Metro station is next to the hotel, as is the famous Cafe Tortoni. In the category of rather simple hotels, this place can surely be recommended.

    • Solo traveller

    Air-condition is centrally regulated , so my room was quite cold (in the middle of summer). Also it was blowing directly to my head, while sleeping,so that was very unpleasant. When I first got into the room bathroom was dirty.It was cleaned the next day,however since everything is so old and damaged still didn't feel clean.Placement of the toilet in the bathroom left me wondering how am I going to use it? Very annoying!!! Hotel is around 100 years old,and the last time most of the interior was redecorated was at least 30-40 years ago. So comfort and the standard of the hotel is in accordance with that. Breakfast was very simple and limited.

    Location is excellent, close to subte, bus stations, taxis, sights, shops, restaurants,... Wi-fi was good(at least for me). Staff is kind, helpful, and despite my limited Spanish we managed to communicate successfully. Terrace/hallway was cozy to sit in (too bad rooms don't offer the same atmosphere).
