    The property is old & has not been maintained. If there were 1 or 2 issues we could have lived with that. There were so many issues; ants, bad AC, bad wifi, too many to list. Many better options at a similar price point.

    The location is great but that's where it ends.

    Great area for a Buenos Aires holiday
    • Leisure trip
    • Family with young children
    • Executive Suite
    • Stayed 4 nights

    Bathrooms could have been a little cleaner/fresher. The "kitchen" part of the suite was just a microwave/small fridge come minibar and a sink - plus some cutlery. Also not quite sure why we only got the VAT back because we asked for it ... surely since it's Government ruling that tourists are exempt from VAT on hotel accommodation it should be automatic?

    The hotel is in a lovely area with plenty of restaurants and bars and shops close by. The rooms are spacious and well soundproofed. I found this property conveniently situated half way between Palermo and San Telmo etc also quite close to the Aeroparque (national) airport. We enjoyed visiting the Recoleta cemetery and market which is just a stones throw away on our last morning plus there is a "city tour" bus stop just around the corner.

    I was delighted I was able to check-in before the usual time, because I had a very long flight. The staff was very helpful with this, as well as with other issues. It was great to have small kitchen equipment in a cupboard (a sink, a microwave) in the room. The room itself was nice and cosy, very calm and relaxing. The breakfast wasn't very rich, but I think it's not supposed to be. It was enough for me and offered good/fresh food.

    There are 2 elevators, but they are very small, i.e. fits 1 person each. Not good for those prone to claustrophobia. The place is a little run down and feels a little unclean compared to US hotels.

    The neighborhood is terrific. The person working at the front desk spoke English and was very friendly. We got an upgrade for our room since they had no vacancy for the cheaper one we had booked.
