Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I spent one night at this hotel in April of this year.For the price that I was asked to pay-$124 U.S.-I had high expectations.They were not realized.The room was very small with little space to move around.A bad smell emanated from the bathroom via the bathroom window with the result that the bathroom door had to be kept shut while I slept.This made the bedroom very stuffy.....No breakfast was served,the excuse being that this was to minimise the spread of Covid 19.With social distancing measures in place in the dining room surely this could have been circumvented?...Check-in was slow with a number of people waiting to be dealt with in the small reception area....No concern about Covid 19 there...The staff were ok,'though not particularly welcoming....On the plus side one staff member was kind and helpful when ordering me a taxi on the morning of departure....A disappointing-and expensive-experience...I cannot recommend the place.

Located in the city centre (10 minutes from the obelisk) it is a hotel that clearly have seen better times. Dated, poor housekeeping (found a use towel behind the bed when trying to use the socket) and except one of the night receptionist, the morning team seem quite serious and unapproachable. The room itself is not bad and the water pressure and temperature are great.

Great location , very good value, super clean. Had a “junior suite” and nothing to complain about, UNTIL: After first day room was not cleaned and when inquired I was told the price did not include that service but could be added for an extra USD 12per day increasing the room price by 33 % ! Wrote to agoda.com and was assured that cleaning was included. What trick costing the hotel 2 stars.

Perfectly located for seeing the city but the hotel was awful. Rooms were stuffy and dark. Very loud noises from the hallway. COCKROACHES, regularly runs out of hot water, felt like I was sleeping on a camping cot, complimentary breakfast was cold if there was even food available at all. I don't have high standards but I was seriously sleeved by this place and considered switching hotels - in fact I would have if I was there on my own dime.

My stay was not what I hoped. Pros -walking distance to Obelisco, Casa Rosada, shopping, food, public transportation -rooms were warm, decent Wi-Fi Cons -we were there 3 nights and the NEVER cleaned our rooms or offered supplies. We ran out of toilet paper and everything. -we were initially told by reception that we had breakfast so we go and eat. After were done they tell us we actually don't and were asking we pay 350 pesos each. Breakfast consisted of some cereals, pastries and coffee, tea, eggs. Ended up paying a little less but still made us pay. To be fair, I did check later the booking and it did not include breakfast but since front desk staff told us we did, I assumed we did. We left to a different hotel (because we ended up staying extra days in BA) and next day, front desk staff asked if we needed towels, service etc.

Hotel is very well located on the main avenue near the playa del mayo and the obelisk. Reception not very impressive. Brush up you Spanish, limited English is spoken. Room is stuffy and dark, there is a window but you can shake hands with the neighbors. The bed is good and clean. The other part of the room was far from clean. It has been a while that the room has seen a vacuum cleaner. It took some time to remove the cobwebs!. There is a tv and a safety deposit box. The bathroom is outdated. You will find a hairdryer! Shower head hardly gives enough water to have a comfortable shower. The breakfast is on the 7th floor in a canteen styled room. Basic food with good croissants. The other food is not very impressive. Staff is ignorant in cleaning up. In short : great location, you have to take the disadvantages for granted. Score : light 3

This hotel was nothing particularly special, but the people running it were very helpful and nice, which made our stay enjoyable enough for the three days spend in Buenos Aires. The lift of the hotel was a bit slow and questionable and the room did little to block out noise from outside, but it was situated perfectly in the city for visiting shops for food, shopping, attractions, and groceries. A few more touch ups and this place would be much more popular.

Ok, it's a budget hotel...knowing that going in you certainly can't expect the George V. Tiny, kinda grubby "lobby" that basically consists of a vinyl sofa, front desk, and an elevator door...not a great first impression. By the time the glacially slow elevator takes you to your floor you're not expecting much...then you step into your room and exclaim, "hey, not bad". Clean, spacious, and recently redone. Beds, comfy, water pressure, decent...ok by me! Extra touches include a lovely art deco stairway and a pleasant breakfast room with nice stained glass windows...and a better-than-average Porteno style breakfast. To me, the best advantage of this old dowager is its location...right in the heart of BA...mere blocks from the Obelisco and Avenida Corrientes, steps from a metro station, a half block to a Carrefour and rock tossing distance from the pedestrian street and a bevy of restaurant and shopping choices. I like being in the heart of a city so this was great for me. So, in closing, the Gran Hotel Argentino is a decent "value for money" kind of destination...beautiful it ain't...and services are basic... but it's worth the pesos.

The hotel is basically on the main street of Buenos Aires-el 9 de Julio- and was in walking distance to many main attractions or the 'subte' station-easy and economical way to get around the city. [I would also recommend the 'bus turístico' for 490 pesos argentinos (Dec-2016) for a thorough view of the entire city-well worth the money. Although some of the rooms could use an update, my updated room was always clean (great maid-Vicki on the 7th floor) and adequately served my needs. The complimentary breakfast with my package was quite good. I had read that the wifi was 'hit & miss', but I found it worked well at all times-you had to re-login daily, but that was it. The front desk personnel was always friendly and Matías helped me to arrange several excursions. (I speak Spanish so that might have helped my overall experience.)
