We stayed here twice, at either end of a trip to the Antarctic. The rooms were great - spacious, clean, excellent showers, nice views (we looked over the garden one time, then the river the next). But the service was lackadaisical - no porter leapt forward to help us with our luggage at any point, breakfast staff were slow on... More

The hotel was clean and bright, breakfasts OK, terrace was very pleasant. The lack of free wifi was a pain, but I got round the cost of water by filling my bottle from the water urn in the dining room. Our group had an excellent steak dinner in the dining room, but I had a disappointing and seriously overpriced lunch.... More

This hotel offers location, service, and a quality facility. The rooms are very large and comfortable, and the shower is superb, especially after a long day out and about the city. Rooms facing the European style garden are very quiet. The breakfast buffet is substantial and the lobby bar is a nice place to relax for a pre-dinner drink. On... More

We stayed here 2 nights as part of our cruise package to Antarctica. The hotel was gorgeous, the gardens and wall-waterfalls in the back were beautiful. The rooms had twin beds, but were large, bathrooms were huge, with rainfall-showers, all amenities. We found the staff friendly and helpful. Buffet at breakfast was good, large selection. Wasn't sure what to expect... More

Average hotel in general with a very poor buffet breakfast and hit and miss service in the restaurant. Beware of the 10 dollar charge for a bottle of Evian water in your room.

We stayed at the Emperador as part of an Antarctica tour. The hotel common areas were very nice and the rooms were indeed spacious as described in other reviews.

The hotel sits in the corner of Pellegrini and Libertador. You have ready access to most of the top attractions in Buenos Aires. The rooms are spacious. The lobby is large and inviting.

Staying in Retiro

Neighbourhood Profile
Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the port, mean this neighbourhood is never truly at rest. One minute you are walking down a street dotted with ornate mansions and luxurious shop windows and the next you find yourself surrounded by a sea of people racing to catch their train or bus. It is this juxtaposition of never-ending comings and goings and quiet, elegant luxury that defines Retiro, as well as Buenos Aires, a city where sharp contrasts are all around.
