This hotel provided the perfect place to stay for my first trip to Buenos Aires and Argentina. The staff spoke wonderful English for which I was grateful as sadly I don't speak any Spanish. While not a luxury hotel, this place was clean, comfortable and had a wonderful atmosphere. There was a bar and there were plenty of pleasant corners where I could relax in the evening with a drink and read a book. The local area felt very safe and I had no problems walking to restaurants and back at night alone. One thing that is worth pointing out is there are safe deposit boxes in the lobby which are great for storing cash, valuables etc. For a small deposit, you get a key and then you can access the the box yourself whenever you want for the whole time you are there - this was a very useful service. I absolutely loved Buenos Aires and I couldn't imagine a better hotel than the Costa Rica if you want a safe, affordable and welcoming place to stay!…
We arrived at this hotel on Feb 24, 2020 as a group of international blacksmiths. The group stayed for 10 days calling Hotel Costa Rica home. We have stayed on, and use the hotel as a base to explore other areas of Argentina and Uraguay, but returning to Hotel Costa Rica feels like coming home. It's an older building, but kept meticulously clean and tidy, A lovely common area, with interesting art ,but best of all are the staff, The manager Silvina is a rockstar, as are the rest of the staff. I am going to miss them.
Comfortable clean charming hotel with very friendly helpful staff. Located in the Palermo district of BA notable for its tree lined streets and avenues and for its cool bars and excellent restaurants.
old house, with many little corners to sit and hang out (on the roof, or inside), very nicely decorated, staff very friendly, clean, rooms a little small, but after all you only sleep in there, and beds are comfortable. Quiet but still close to restaurants. A place you would like to stay longer
A relaxing and stylish hotel in a great area of town. The coffee was superb, and is included at breakfast. There is a bar which seems to be open the whole time. If there are people with loud voices the building gets a bit noisy with echoes up and down the stairwell. The floors are rather slippery as they are marble, stone and decking - my daughter tripped twice. Highly recommended
Stylish hotel with high ceilings. Good location of the hotel within walking distance of Plaza Italia, with many and good restaurants in the area. Very friendly hospita and personnel. Very attentive and helpful.
I really enjoyed my stay here in this hotel. The staff is excellent, very helpful and always friendly. They gave me perfect advice when I needed it the most. The rooms are spacious and furnished in Vintage-style. The breakfast is small but sufficient. Its location is pretty good as the shopping and gastronomic district Palermo Soho is very nearby. Only drawback: It's located a bit far from the next metro station, it takes about 15 minutes to get there by feet. In a nutshell it is a great choice for a hotel, especially if a familiar atmosphere is important to you.
This hotel is very well located. It is in boutique style with retro furniture. It is very clean and it is noisy when peaple walk by your room. The staff is very friendly. The continental breakfast is very simple but OK.
We loved this hotel in Buenos Aires and would not have wished to stay anywhere else. Great location in the heart of the Palermo district, which is close to some of the best restaurants in town; beautiful boutique style with a wonderful sunny open air lobby; lovely staff; a great breakfast option of fresh pastries, juice & coffee and finally incredible value.
We spent a few nights in hotel Costa Rica during early october and we were not impressed. The rooms are extremely noisy, especially the rooms situated next to the road. This deprived us from quite some sleep! The bathroom is very basic; there is no proper ventilation, no hairdryer, no shampoo/shower gel etc. Breakfast is ok, but basic (just two croissants and coffee). Location is convenient, close to the lively area of Palermo Soho.
