I saw people here complaining about old fashion furniture, the hotel not being renovated for long, small lobby....etc. Yes, this is true, partially, but think, do you travel to BA to see the city or the hotel?? This hotel is in a quiet central area, 5 min walk to the main 9 July Avenue and Plaza San Martin, and 5... More

Located just a few blocks from Av 9 de Julio in one direction and Calle Florida pedestrian shopping street in the other, this was a good location for us to spend a night in BA before having to fly home early the next day. The hotel desk was very helpful in providing us with a map of the area and... More

We chose this hotel for our last two days in BA. I had higher expectations for a hotel, which is a 4* one (at least it says on their site & booking.com). Check in is from 15:00 - we arrived earlier (13:05) and were told that we can get the room as soon as it's ready, so we decided to... More

I definitely wouldn't recommend it to no one. We stayed at room 109, and last Saturday January 18th 2014, the air conditioner in our room wouldn't work. Believe it or not, at around 21:00 hs. It was about 38 degrees. Can you believe that the management did do anything about it not until the next day, lunchtime, disturbing our vacation.... More

I was staying at the hotel. Definitely recommend for any trip, business or leausure. The personnel is very friendly, always ready to help. The location is very good, close to Florida Street, Plaza San Martin, Puerta Madera, English Tower and the Obelisco. Metro station is 2 minutes walk. For business purposes most offices are in 15-20 minutes' walk.

Clean, small rooms - but enough space. Stayed in a triple room. Did have some issues with the safe in the room and communication with reception. Walking distance to shopping,tourist information, laundry, restaurants, main streets. Breakfast - very limited. Sweet bread, sweet cordial, sweet croissants (a sweet breakfast!) Overall a good hotel for the price and proximity to the city.

The hotel is well located, especially if your planning on doing shopping, because its near lots of outlets and Florida Street. The rooms are not great but they are clean and well maintained. The best rooms are those above the 7st floor, because of the view. The breakfast is very limited but the options are very tasteful, especially the croissants!

Staying in Retiro

Neighbourhood Profile
Retiro
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.
