We have stayed in small hotels like this before, full of character and yes, perhaps a few quirks, but all being said we felt safe, comfortable and thankful we had such lovely ladies, especially Roxanne, looking after us. We had no problem finding the place and I liked that the front entry was locked so you had to announce that...

Spent two nights here, and it is not a boutique hotel. A period building and old furniture and interior decoration do not make it so. Rather, I would describe it as run-down, and slightly shabby. Access to the hotel floor of the building is via an old-stye cage lift, which actually was fine, if a little tight for two people...

This is a small bed and breakfast and can't complains about the Staff. However this is a 115 year old bldg and that means the rooms have big tall ceilings but everything requires modernization. Beds were comfortable but lighting was poor as most bulbs in chandelier were burnt out. Most importantly the Air conditioning was barely functioning beyond circulating air....

We stayed at the hotel twice - at the beginning and end of our trip to Argentina. The hotel occupies the 3rd floor of an old and rundown building in central BA (but no worse than other buildings in the old center). The street does not feel safe at night. The old elevator did not work part of the time,...

It's a little difficult to write this review as for every good part there was a possibly irkesome bad part. The possibly part being dependant on your level of tolerance. To précis it: would I stay there again - yes, absolutely. Would I recommend it - that would depend very much on the person. If you're looking for sterile, functional,...

This is a great place to stay, we had a room that was not facing the street and frankly it was the most peaceful nights sleep I've had in Argentina. Don't stick around for the breakfast, it was a very poor showing.

Stayed in December for 3 nights as tourists.

This place has all the charms. Huge high ceilings with old school shutters. Moldings. And it's nestled into one of the great, energetic neighborhoods of Buenos Aires that is made all the better by the fact that it's not one of the overrun tourist parts of the city. Staying here felt like it must have felt to be in BA...

You are in the heart of Buenos Aires the location is perfect. I can’t say enough about the staff.

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.
