Good location (almost in front of the Lavalle Subte station), lots of shops, cafes and restaurants (Very good cafe with fantastic empanadas just a few meters from the hotel). Rooms are rather small and need refurbishment. Pity there are no coffee/tea making facilities (only as room service, so you'd better go for a local cafe). I got a good price,...

The hotel is very well located in the city centre near lots of bars and restaurants. We felt perfectly saft walking round at night and there is a good police presence. The reception area is fine and modern however the rooms need attention. The bathroom was very small, the shower was nice and powerful. The room was quite dark. We...

This hotel is well located near the commercial and shopping areas. There are many tourists around. The hotel provided a good breakfast. We had a standard room.

Three things I ask of in accommodation and I don't think it's asking too much: location, cleanliness and SLEEP QUALITY. The Rochester is close to everything - shops, action, restaurants, busy laneways, the buzz.

Compared to other hotels I have been to in this region, this has a considerably better breakfast (media lunas and such, 3 or 4 types of natural juices, fruit salad, bread and other things). Location is great, 30 steps from the Lavalle subway, near a shopping center and various bus stops. I also had no problem walking there at night,...

I recently stayed at the Rochester Classic in Calle Esmeralda in Buenos Aires. Previously I'd used the Rochester Concept in Calle Maipu and on several occasions I'd found both room and service acceptable. I was expecting that the upmarket four star Classic would offer slightly more comfort and booked my stay on the net. I was horrified at the run...

The design of the entire place was modern. My room was a decent size but the noise from other people in the hall could be heard. Thankfully I didn't need to sleep in. I had a small enclosed terrace and although I was at the back of the 2nd floor it provided some privacy. The heating/air conditioning unit was great...

The laundry service in this place is a complete rip off! They charged us $270 Australian dollars for like 20 items of clothing (mostly underrwear)! They did not have any prices written on the laundry form and being naive we assumed it would be reasonable...but to check out and have to pay a bill of nearly $300 is beyond shocking...

Staying in San Nicolas

Neighbourhood Profile
San Nicolas
Immersed in the sound of honking horns and the footsteps of busy office workers, the Microcentro area of San Nicolás is where visitors will encounter the true hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, walking down streets lined with office buildings and banks. The financial district is well-known for its vibrant atmosphere and unstoppable rhythm during office hours. After dark, the hubbub and migrates to Corrientes Ave., where theatre lovers might start their evening at a play and end it in one of the many traditional pizzerias nearby. During the day, Corrientes is known for its many bookshops and classic cafés, which are located just minutes away from some famous landmarks, like the Obelisco, Avenida 9 de Julio, and the Teatro Colon.
