“Good location, nice staff”
Reviewed 29 April 2012

As other reviewers said, it's a typical Ibis Hotel. Very well located: 2 blocks away from Obelisco and 1km (more or less) from Puerto Madero. A good bed and a good shower to rest after a day walking around Buenos Aires! Walk just 1 block and you can catch the subway line B. There are a lot of restaurants, cafes, and other options of food (Mc Donalds, Subway, Burguer King) around.
The staff was really nice. They scheduled our transfer to the airport and had adaptors to charge cell phones and cameras (it's really hard to find hotels that can lend these items).
The cafe has a lot of options. I strongly recommend to apply for it (it's not included in the price of the room, but it's cheaper and better than having it at the cafes of the street).

I was at this hotel with friends for 3 nights in February. The location is very good, close to the main avenue of Buenos Aires, about 15min walk from the presidential palace and also Calle Florida. It is also very close to the tube station.
There are restaurants and super markets close by as well.
Staff was helpful and spoke good English. Room was clean, typical Ibis layout.
Breakfast buffet was very good and a much better price than any other restaurant around, where you get a croissant and a juice only for the same price.
Good budget hotel.

Good localization (in downtown, near puerto madero, San telmo), new rooms and in accordance to Ibis Standard. They offer free wifi internet at hotel lobby.
The breakfast is good and not expensive.
Avoid taking cabs in front of the hotel. They tried to charge us 2x more than the reasonable when we were going to Aeroparque airport. Actually this is an advice everywhere in BA.

In the centre of Buenos Aires, Ibis Obelisco on Corrientes was convenient and very good value. We felt very comfortable walking on Corrientes and the side-streets night and day.
Wi-fi internet is free in the hotel lobby and a small cost in the rooms.

Ibis will store luggage for guests traveling outside Buenos Aires for a few nights and returning to the hotel.

There are lots of restaurants and cafes within walking distance. Pizza Guernica next door is packed day and night with locals. Pepito’s Parilla (turn left onto Montevideo) was our favourite eatery, very popular with locals and good value. We were the only English-speakers on our many visits to Pepitos. We liked it for the cheese free options when we had eaten enough pizza. The Novotel next door had a restaurant which offered a good choice.

We asked for and received a quiet room at the rear of the Ibis building. It was the standard, minimal Ibis room with very efficient air-con even in sweltering February. We turned the a/c off overnight, opened the window and slept soundly.

We missed the fridge and tea/coffee tray with electric kettle that are always provided in Australian hotels. We were able to buy fruit and drinks, including water, wine and cold beer at nearby convenience stores but had no way of keeping them cold. Drinks at the Ibis bar downstairs were reasonably priced.

The young and enthusiastic reception staffers were very welcoming, helpful and efficient. Most of them spoke excellent English.

Breakfast was good value: fresh fruits, cereals, breads, (toaster) and sweet pastries, with a choice of toppings, cheese, ham and jams as well as scrambled eggs. Drinks included fruit juices and coffee.

If you have a long stay, be warned that your bill must be paid as soon as it reaches 2,000 Argentinian pesos. That’s less than $US500, or 5 night’s stay. We weren’t warned and returned footsore and weary to find our keys would not unlock our door. It was sorted quickly with a credit card.

We would certainly return.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room at the back.
