BA Central Hotel

Reviewed 12 January 2017 via mobile

Stayed a few years ago and now under different management, a bit frayed around the edges now but the basics of a city hotel are still there. Friendly staff, good location, ok breakfast and acceptably clean. All major tourist attractions are easily accessible via the efficient BA public transport links. Good value for money everything considered.

We booked a three-bed-room and got upgraded to a two-room-suite. Not the most luxurious hotel but great value for the money. Big refrigerator which is a big plus. Friendly and helpful staff, of whom some spoke English. Would stay here again

Booked on the hotel's website, then I emailed them that we would be arriving late due to a late flight. No response. Arrived and the front desk guy was kind of a jerk. Refused to speak English or even slow down his Spanish. Finally was able to understand and he was saying they were full. Since it was 1am, we basically demanded a a taxi to another hotel. The new hotel he recommended was not as nice (according to pics) and more expensive.

I'm a reasonable person but this type of practice is unacceptable. Will never go back.

Not a posh part of town but well located for a number of universities and in an angle between Callao and Corrientes, near lots of second hand bookshops. It is not modern or refurbished but well maintained and great value. I was in one of the suites, called Penthouse rooms, absolutely spacious with bedroom, sitting room, and small kitchen space. Staff was helpful and pleasant. And it is really great value for the price. Wifi was free and worked extremely well. Note that it goes by the name O2 as well as BA Central so you might not find it using the O2.

Room Tip: Penthouse is more than worth the money and you can convert the sofa to another bed

Estimado Jakono,
Encontramos muy agradable su comentario. Es correcto que ponemos especial énfasis en nuestro servicio y la atención al huésped. Entendemos también que la conexión a internet por medio de wi-fi es un servicio en el cual el hotel se debe destacar. Por ello es que realizamos relevamientos del servicio e invertimos en renovar a medida que la tecnología sugiere nuevos elementos para una mejor conexión. Le agradecemos su tiempo y lo esperamos nuevamente. Saludos Cordiales.

The staff and service was great with a smile ON to genuinely help you. The rooms are slightly tired. The facilities is limited but staff will try their best. Location is great as it is about 40 pesos in cab from all touristy places. Breakfast is well sufficient for a good start to the day.
