I stayed at this hotel after reading some good evaluation from the internet and viewing nice pictures of the inside. But it was disappointing for me and my roommate. Although the apartments were very good size and clean, the furniture and carpet in my unit looked very tired and asking for urgent refurbishing. Bed and linens were good and comfortable,... More

Great location in Buenos Aires close to a bunch of restaurants, shopping, bus lines, etc. Desk staff was super nice. Definitely does need to be remodeled, but it's fine if you're not staying in your room all day. Our A/C unit was pretty weak, and couldn't even keep up when it was only about 85 F outside. Also the bakery... More

After staying at the Waldorf as part of an organized tour, my travelmate and I checked in the Posta Carretas. This is quite a gem - it is very well located between two major streets. Everything interesting is within walking distance. Quite a lot of restaurants and small groceries around. Despite being so centrally located, the room was reasonably quiet,... More
