The hotel is in an excellent location near Recoleta. However, the rooms ar small for thre people, we hardly can move ind the room. The breakfast room at 11h (now) is dirty and dark. We have to wait a long time to have a clean table and the service is the breakfast rom is dark. There ar many good cafes around the hotel and it is much better off to have breakfast in one of them.

on arrival in BA back in early jan. we stayed in a hostel near the microcenter for one night before picking up our car. it left us with a fairly dull view of the city. returning 5 weeks later (and 2 months sooner than planned due to a family emergency) we checked into what for us was quite the upgrade from what we'd been accustomed to. we were greeted by the spanish-only speaking senor oscar and the helpful and wonderfully bilingual sebastien. our room was clean, roomy enough and well-appointed. and on the 8th floor, which was fine until the night we returned to find the power out and the stairs just waiting for us. i felt like robert redford in "barefoot in the park" when he returns from work to discover his 5th floor walk-up. breakfast was varied and well-stocked which was a

We would rate this at about 1-2 star due to Location not central Rooms smell of stale cigarette smoke Beds small and uncomfortable with one flat pillow we each. Prison pillows are better Rooms are noisy Breakfast average. Bread often a little old Safes in rooms don't work Staff are slow to fix anything On the plus side: staff is friendly Bed linen not changed regularly

This is a decent enough hotel but the staff are what really make the difference. My wife developed laryngitis shortly after arriving in Buenos Aires. Diego and the rest of the staff were extremely helpful and attentive. They phoned taxis and doctors for us, helped us change check our changed flights and generally helped us sort ourselves out during the stay. It would have been a very different experience without their help. The hotel was well located for getting around town and was good value for money. It's easy to walk to town from there and it is handy for La Recoleta. The only downside was that on our second stay there we got the very last room (which is obviously kept in reserve) but they did offer to change us the next day. I'd just like to say another thank you to Diego.

The worst thing about this hotel is the horrible sound proofing. When you are in the room and someone does something in the room next to yours or in the corridor - you can hear everything. of course, after some time you get used to it and you feel like at home when your family members walk arond in the eveing, but in the beginning it was like a shck (although I read reviews at booking.com, but still it was a big surprise for me). The breakfast was also quite average, I do not remember any hot meal (except toasts). Of course, normally you do not need to eat too much but for some people it can be important. However, the location is very nice, you can go by feet to most of attractions, and if you can not or do not want to go by feet you can always choose a taxi as an option to

We stayed that this hotel for four nights at the end of a 7 week South American trip before heading back to Sydney. Given the location, the nightly tariff was good value at US$55. We found the English speaking front desk staff extremely helpful (booking restaurants, checking airline details etc), much better service then you would expect from a 3 star hotel. Breakfast is included with the room tariff. The buffet consisted of fresh fruits, pastries, yoghurt, bread, meat and cheeses, hot and cold drinks. No hot food, but given the room rate we paid, a very good spread. The rooms were small, but this wouldn’t be unexpected in this area of town at this price point. Rooms at the back of the hotel only have limited natural light, via a light well....these rooms should be avoided.

we booked for a group of 7 people(1 single bed room and 3 double bed).Our major problem with this hotel(night/evening front desk) started as checking in.They gave us 1 double and 3 single bed rooms even though we had reserve confirmated by local travel operator(cvc Brasil).when my wife and i got upstairs the room was with three single beds,and the room in front of ours, was like we booked. we immediatly went to talk to front desk thinking he had make a mistake.But he said that he had no double bed room available,in spite of we had seen the room like we booked in front of ours(the door was open and we checked that it was available).After some minutes arguing .. the front desk said it was cvc(local travel operator) fault.The amazing thing was that the cvc employee(Andres) was

We booked through Gate 1 Travel. It is rated 3* but I think they forgot to put the minus sign before the 3. The reception is shabby, old fashioned and dirty. The rooms were worse. They were not only dirty but so filthy that what appeared to be a grey line around the base boards without my glasses on, turned out to be dust so thick and impacted it was a permanent feature! The orange carpets were stained so badly it looked like a kennel rug and the walls were splattered with liquids of goodness knows what. The view was a huge elevator shaft wall with trash at the bottom of it. What a let down! One thing in it's favour was the friendliness of the young lads in reception. You could see they got plenty of complaints and were unhappy about them, but because they didn't speak

I chose the Impala on the basis of (a) the best price I could find in downtown Buenos Aires for the period I needed (in this case only 2 weeks in advance, booking through OPODO at US$ 92 /night) and (b) the previous reviews in Tripadvisor. The hotel is situated in the upmarket part of the Retiro Barrio about half way between the Microcentro and Recoletta, i.e. ideally - just off Santa Fee and plenty of shops nearby. Although the street (Libertad) is pretty busy, I had a room at the back (small window looking out into concrete on all sides) which was really very quiet, except for the occassional noises of machinery. First impression of the room was pretty small with tatty worn carpets and furniture that had had some stick, but it had been well cleaned and when I pulled back

If you're looking for a simple hotel with clean rooms, friendly staff, great neighborhood (Recoleta), this hotel is a very good choice. I stayed there from Nov 27th through Dec 7th and experienced no problems. The room was small but clean. The bathroom was average sized and also clean. The bed was comfortable. Noise was not a factor. I had no great view from my room, it did not matter to me as I only stayed there to sleep and shower. There's too much to do to stay cooped up in your room anyway. The staff was courteous and very helpful. There is free internet access in the lobby and a very nice continental breakfast. The food was fresh and tasty. All the major points of interest are very close by. Recoleta cemetery is within walking distance as well as is Florida street and many
