We stayed 3 nights. They have not refill toilet paper, soap and shampoo for 2 nights. We had to go down and pick up. Towels are old like and breakfast really poor. Elevators take years to come. Internet very slow. Anyway. If you can. Go somewhere else

The hotel cheats their guests. They sold us a room, which in spite of the description at the hotel's web site did not have air conditioning working properly. The rooms were below the promised standard and did not seem to be very clean or inviting. The hotel refused to give us our money back in spite of their agreeing with...

I travel a lot and only have one prerequisite of a hotel and that is cleanliness. This place does definitely not make the grade in this respect. Mould around the washbasin, someone else's hair in the bathtub, bed and pillow dirty with stains on them, fresh towels looking like they were used for 2 weeks before they arrived in my...

The name of this hotel certainly exaggerates reality: it is not really artistic and uniqueness is doubtful. Rather the intensive use of the white color makes it rather dirty looking when considering the wear of the floorboards, originally of pure white color laminate. This said, you will find all you need here, free WiFi, great breakfast on the 11th floor...

We were making a booking and misunderstood their Web site. We had selected a modest room and then realised that the site had selected the night of booking which was a month away from when we were actually visiting. We immediately cancelled, using their cancel button. There was no confirmation of booking the room, nor was there a confirmation of...

The hotel claims four stars but in the end is only worth three stars. Rooms are small, there is lot of noise from the street and the furniture is kind of aged. Staff is friendly though the hotel does not offer all services that one would expect (e.g. they were not able to help us out with a tooth brush...

The customer service is acceptable and the location is quite sage. Just around the corner police station number 22, on top of several police car surveying the zone. No so far away from main restaurants in Puerto Madero, and quite near from main shop streets and shopping center. The only complain is the elevator quality is very poor. In high...

Stay for one night en route to Montevideo. Wanting to stay close to Puerto Madero but not wanting to pay that area prices, I settle for this hotel. It's about 4-5 blocks from the main Puerto Madero's entertaining area and very close to San Telmo. The immediate area around the hotel is unappealing, but I didn't feel unsafe. I agree...

The hotel was in a very convenient location but the hotel was not too good. There were a lot of different receptionists who personally knew us and helped us throughout our stay from restaurant and trip recommendations to reservations ( even though there was one issue with one trip) and currency exchange. We were able to pay in either Argentinian...

Staying in San Telmo

Neighbourhood Profile
San Telmo
Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San Telmo is defined by the tango, the dance that made Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many different cultures: a true child of immigration, much like the city itself. Nowadays, it comes alive after dark in the milongas (dance parties) attended by both locals and visitors alike, who dance until the wee hours of the morning. During the day, the antique shops and classic cafés and bars around Plaza Dorrego dominate the scene. The emblematic Bar Plaza Dorrego, with its green awnings, checkered tile floors, and wooden interiors, takes you back in time the moment you step inside. For true porteño traditions, San Telmo is the place to be.

“There are only 3 outlets for charging electronics in the room and they are all far from the beds. There is no desk or chair to sit either. Also, since you need the key card for electricity, you cannot charge anything while you are not in the room.”
