So after the Grand International Hotel nightmare! This is where we stayed. It cost $76 a night no breakfast but the room was great, great shower and comfy beds. The receptionist Sabina spoke bot english and spanish and was very helpful with everything. Cannot reccomend this hotel more.

I spent 4 nights here, and was happy with my choice. The room was reasonably clean and quiet, with a large bathroom, coffee maker and mini-fridge, breakfast one of several freshly made choices (they'll make coffee "forte" if you ask), and the staff generally friendly and helpful. Some of the front desk staff could be better informed - if you... More

The Hotel is located in the best possible location in terms of connectivity, nightlife and restaurants. The front desk staff are exceptionally nice . The morning breakfast at the restaurant is wonderful as well. All in all a good experience.

The hotel is in like-new condition, very clean, and well insulated (there was a very loud Christmas concert going on in the park right across the street - we did not hear it in the room). At $55 per night it was the deal of a century. However - $3.50 for a coffee downstairs in the morning was the only... More

I was concerned about some reviews which said this hotel didn't speak English or that they didn't have hot water. I found that they did have hot water and everything was very comfortable. I felt totally safe at the Saba hotel. The staff did only speak a little English, and I spoke only little Spanish, but I was still able... More

What else is there to say: good, clean, friendly staff, conveniently located. walking distance from Metro, and the Via Argentina is a charming spot. Probably not as lively as Casco Vieja or the big hotel area, but for couple of nights or overnight as transfer, price/quality is good.
