The hotel is very nice. I ordered room service my server was Alfredo Santana, he was Fabolous!!!! My server spoke very good English, he came to my room to make sure my order was accurate before processing, Alfredo manners was outstanding. I never had room service like this before I am definitely applaud :-) .... The service was fast, my order was exactly as I ordered no mistakes also was picked up in a reasonable time when finished. As a business owner I always like to point out great customer service because it goes unnoticed.

Our flight on Aerolineas Argentina was cancelled just as we were about to board our flight. The airline gave us a voucher to stay at this hotel. The lobby and our room (on the fourth floor) had a strong musty smell. The AC unit and refrigerator in our room was broken, there was only one working plug, the sheets were gray, and the room appeared to not have been painted in years. The lighting was so dim that we could not see how dirty or clean the dark rug or room was. The bathroom was decrepit and filthy and did not look anything like the bathrooms in the photos on their website. Because the AC was broken, we had to leave the window open and it faced a very busy street - so it was very noisy all night. However, the breakfast was basic and acceptable and we asked the staff to order a taxi for us at a specific time and they did. Some staff members also spoke good English.

I stayed in the hotel for two days in a business trip. The room in the 4th floor was really an old one, with carpet in very bad conditions. Old furniture, dirty walls and courtain, and smelling really bad. To finished the bad experience, a spider of about 8cm was found in the room. I asked for other room, which was a little bit better, in the 8th but at least with no spiders. Not recommended!!!

I loved staying at this charming little hotel amidst the hustle and bustle of the city. Located on Carlos Pellegrini, it's walking distance to many major attractions in Buenos Aires. The room was comfortable, after I was moved from the 2nd floor to the 7th because the heat in my room wasn't working. I had a great view of the city, the bed was comfortable and the bathroom newly renovated. The breakfast was good, and conveniently available until late morning. A lovely gentleman named George works at the front desk. He speaks English and French, and will gladly give you directions to any place in BA you're interested in visiting. He has a great deal of knowledge and made me feel very comfortable during my stay; he's a major asset to the hotel and a big part of the reason I would stay here again and recommend this hotel to others. Stay at Embajador Hotel if you want an authentic Buenos Aires experience in a quirky hotel with character. To the management: the pillows on the beds need to be replaced.

We chose this hotel for its location. Very close to the Obelisk, the icon of Buenos Aires, it can't be a bad place to stay. We were not disappointed with what this budget hotel offered The rooms were compact and a bit dated, but cleaned every day with towels changed daily. Our room was facing Avenida 9 de Julio, claimed the widest avenue in the world. However, we were on the 11th floor and surprisingly it was not noisy at all. This hotel is appropriate for a few days stays, for longer ones I would go for something more comfortable.

Hotel is very very old, the rooms are clean but they need serious wall painting, the breakfast is very limited. The location is not that bad. In general this is low budget hotel so you are getting what you paid for. If I come to Buenos Aires again I will choose different hotel.

Newer mattress firm but comfortable. Cleaned daily but towels are replace every other day. The bidet occupies precious space in a cramped wc. Minimum furnishing, Luggage must be placed on the floor (no space for luggage rack). No Kleenex must use toilet paper. Used toilet paper to be disposed in the only trash can provided. Continental breakfast is good. Hotel staff wanted $340 pesos to hail a taxi early in the morning but it cost me under 120 pesos from the airport to the hotel. Something is not right. Anyways the hotel is indeed convenient and cheap sleep. Forget watching TV. It's only a 22" screen.

My wife and I had booked the Impala but were transferred here on arrival - they are both in the 525 Hotels group. Initially we were not happy as the location looked as if it would be noisier. In fact the location, on one of Buenos Aires busiest roads, was fine, as you must expect noise everywhere in BA. The hotel is showing its age, but the staff were excellent - very helpful when we were planning to get the ColoniaExpress to Uruguay; with money exchange; advice generally. Our bedroom on the tenth floor was fine, with a great view over the city. The large double bed was comfortable, and as the room safe didn't work we found that there is a very secure private strong box facility in the lobby. The wifi in the bedroom was excellent and very fast. The breakfast was about as good as any in our month in South America. If you are staying to enjoy BA rather than luxuriate in a fancy hotel this would be hard to beat!

I stayed here with my fiance for 3 nights when we first arrived in Argentina. It is in a good spot (3 blocks from the Brazilian consulate, for those wanting to get a visa) and close to a lot of restaurants and shopping. It was clean and tidy, hot shower, comfy king sized bed, decent breakfast and all the staff were friendly and helpful. There is free wifi in the lobby and breaky area too. We booked on booking.com and got the room for AU$45/night which was a bargain. I have seen some not so good reviews for this place but i could find no fault. I do understand that it depends on what you are after. But for us this was perfect place to recover from our flight, obtain our visa and get our bearings. Hope you find this helpful!

I stayed in this hotel for just one night and it was great for just that. The room features are not the most recent but for the price I paid it was well worth it. The location is excellent, within walking distance of el monumental and buenos aires's main downtown core. Nice cafes and restaurants around the corner. Staff were very friendly. No trace of any bed bugs. Lobby is clean and welcoming. Would definitely stay there again for the price and location.
