I stayed here for a week in late January during a Buenos Aires heatwave. The room I was given was quite small with very basic amenities but for the price I was satisfied as other hotels in the area were much more expensive. The staff was great and allowed me to check out extra late as my flight was quite late in the evening. The air conditioning unit is actually outside the building and you can barely hear if it's on or off and the black-out gates on the windows really do a great job of keeping out light. The area is great because it's close to the metro and allows you to walk to Recoleta and downtown.

The hotel is dated and needs refurbishment but the room was large and comfortable. The staff at reception looked after every enquiry with great hospitality and effort. I asked for a change of room as I was first allocated a twin room and asked to move to a room with a double bed. The request was met with instant assistance in the transfer of luggage, etc. The location is fantastic with Avenida Santa Fe a few steps away, lots of bars and restaurants within short distance. The breakfast was ok with a few buffet choices.

The staff is very kind and helpful and the breakfast is tasty. It is now a little obsolete, but well preserved and clean. Room and bathroom size are OK. Very nice view at almost all rooms. The best thing is the position and the rates. Great cost-benefit hotel in Buenos Aires!

The room is a bit small but with bathtub. The location is great with 1 minute walk to Carrefour Small supermarket, very convenience. the hotel staff can speak excellent Engllish, very polite and helpful. I had a bad experience in Buenos Aires about thief along the street then i suddenly came back to hotel, just like i came back home really. George, the hotel staff is very helpful and very kind. He even took me to the police station to interprete for me and help me to prepare the police report and very take good care of me during the very bad time. I put the sign do not disturt but the hotel staff also give me a call to ask if i need room service or anything and do will provide anything you want. If you are looking for a budget hotel with nice and friendly staff, i recommend this

The hotel is well located, the breakfast is fine and the price is quite cheap. However, the room was cozy, smell to smoke like if someone was smoking. I was in a 8th floor over the Carlos Pellegrini avenue, the room has double window, but it still was really noisy. I wold recommend this hotel if you don't have trouble to sleep. The people from the hotel was very nice and helpfull. Definitely not for families.

We booked the hotel over the net based on photos & price. Once we arrived the lobby looked good & we expected the same from the rooms. Unfortunately the rooms were bad, very small & looked like there hasn't been an update since the 70's. If you like no frills then this is the right hotel.

I stayed at this hotel for 8 nights. My room had a double bed, colour tv, nice bathroom. Breakfast was great (croissants, fruit, dulce de leche, toast, butter, cheese, ham etc) The staff at the reception is very helpful and friendly. The location is safe and very close to all the main attractions in Buenos Aires. I wasn't too sure about the Embajador, but all my fears proved to be wrong. I do recommend this hotel.

My husband, daughter and I strongly disliked this hotel. The mattresses were extraordinarily uncomfortable - they were tired and worn and the springs all but poked through their cover. The rooms were shabby and in dire need of renovation. Wallpaper and rugs were old and dirty. On the positive side, the staff was pleasant and accommodating, the rooms were cleaned well by housekeeping, and the buffet breakfast was perfectly fine. The lobby and dining areas were fine. As well, the location of this hotel was quite good.

Very nice hotel staff, but Martin (tall & blondish) speaks the best English. They'll phone in reservations, call for taxis, and assist in booking tours. All very willing to help in any way, including maids (no English). Internet is free to use anytime. Will store luggage free when you have an evening departure. Breakfast is usual European fare, plus yogurt, 3 dry cereals, strong coffee, juices and fresh fruit. Place is clean from top to bottom; never saw a bug anywhere and carpet looks new. English TV on 8 channels. Plenty of hot water and big towels, even a phone in bath. Good central location: 8 blocks from Obelisk, 4 to American Express Building, 8 to Pacifica Galleria and Teatro Colon. All tours pick up and deliver right in front of the door. Noise from the street

We stayed here for a night on both ends of our trip to Iguazu. It was a nice place. The rooms were a little small, but since you are in BA, you shouldn't spend too much time in the room, there is so much to see! The staff was helpful, cabs were easy to get, the internet service was free and fast. The location was nice, walking distance to lots of sights and shopping. It was safe, the door is locked and the front desk has to open it for you. We also safely stored luggage there for a week. You can hear some of the traffic in your room, but it wasn't loud enough to really be disturbing. The bathrooms were clean and the showers had hot water! It had a nice breakfast spread and they brought in a big-screen plasma TV for the World Cup! We would stay there again.
