The location is great for walking around the centre of the city.
The staff are helpful and offered advice about bus routes, changing money etc.
The rooms themselves let the place down, we stayed in 2 different ones as we had a break in between...More
The good thing of the hotel is the position, a strategic one to visit Buenos Aires mostly on walking distance from the hotel. Room was quite spacious and fairly clean. The personnel was not very available nor particularly kind. All together, it resulted a bit...More

Dear "Lisa A":
First of all, thenk you for your review in Trip Advisor, we are very glad that you enjoyed your stay with us.
As part of the historic quarter of Buenos Aires, Montserrat is defined by the historical events that took place there and the landmarks that have stood the test of time. The Plaza de Mayo is at the center of this connection to history: countless public demonstrations have passed through this square, going back to the May Revolution of 1810. Walking the streets of Montserrat allows us to imagine what Buenos
Aires may have looked like in the past: the Cabildo takes us back to the late 16th century, while the Palacio Barolo and the traditional cafés carry us to the early 20th. Nowadays, the neighbourhood is inundated every day by office workers, buses, and taxis; still, the cobblestones, narrow sidewalks, and subway stations from the 1910s remind us that we are surrounded by history everywhere we look.
