“Great location, helpful staff, comfortable lodging.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2010

We stayed at the Art Deco at the beginning of January, and couldn't have been more pleased with our choice. We'd read the reviews mentioning the street noise, so we requested a room on the "quiet" side of the hotel, and this was accomodated. Our view was only of a rooftop, but we had no problems sleeping at night. The property had everything we wanted, including wi-fi in the room. This is an older hotel, in need of some freshening up, but it's comfortable and very clean. There was plenty of water pressure in the bathroom, and very good housekeeping service. The front desk staff were always helpful in their recommendations and advice, and made our stay very pleasant. The breakfast is very good, with a variety of breads and rolls, ham, cheese, yogurt, cereal, juice, fresh fruits and fruit salad and, naturally, hot milk and excellent coffee. Everything you need to get you out the door in the morning.

The location of the hotel is one of its best features. It's just a half block off of Corrientes, a major thoroughfare that leads directly to the Obelisk, about a block away. Two metro stations are nearby, Uruguay and Tribunales (different lines). We were close by to either where we wanted to go or to transportation to where we wanted to go.

It's off-topic as far as the hotel review is concerned, but two recommendations:

First, seek out Line "A" of the Metro system, and ride the wooden cars (they're only on Line A). They're like rolling museum pieces, and have beautiful and immaculate interiors. They've been in use since 1913, and are quite spectacular.

Second, avoid at all costs (about 50 pesos), the yellow, double-decker city tour buses. There were many complaints about the English commentary not functioning, and this was the case for us. The staff appeared fully aware of this, but seemed not to care. They also exercise a rather strange adherence to schedules, denying boarding until the time indicated on your ticket, not matter how empty the bus leaves. You can visit most of the places the tour bus goes by taking city bus #29 on Corrientes, and for only just over 1 peso per trip/boarding. Just make sure you have coins because the machines won't take bills (though they do make change).

We had a room at the back of the hotel so although we had only a view of the neighbours roof we didn't get alot of street noise. Comfortable, big room. Large bathroom which was great. Really good pressure in the shower!! Great location. We walked to the Obelisk (a block or so away). Across the Av 9 de Julio and a few blocks across is 2 large pedestrian shopping arcades. These were great. Staff were friendly. We didn't find the breakfast that great but were only there for one breakfast so I don't know if it changed at all. Would stay there again
