    The location is superb and every taxi driver knows where it is. The staff were friendly and I liked the slightly old-fashioned look of the hotel.

    The plumbing system in the hotel isn't very modern. On our floor (8th if my recollection is correct) there was very little power.

  • Group of friends

    I like the old Grand Hotel feeling even though the rooms need restauration. The rooms in the back are lovely. Very quiet, bright and with BA rooftops view.

    One staff member went out of their way to help me with any enquiries I had. The hotel has a magnificent foyer and a lovey breakfast. You can have a Turkish, Finnish or whatever bath price is included in hotel. If you want a massage you can have one at a very reasonable price. Great hairdresser few shops away ´Jórge´. Aussie dollar is worth 4 times the Peso so great shopping! General public very friendly and helpful and the architecture is stunning.

    It could probably do with new carpet and a paint job in the halls and the rooms.Also they do not have bbc or cnn in their cable, so it´s impòssible to find out the news unless you buy a paper. Brush up on yur Spanish though.Most spèak little English.

    The friendly and very helpful staff, great variety of food at the breakfast buffet, flexible check out hours

    The small double room i booked was way to small for me, my husband and our one year old daughter. To me that room is fine for a solo traveller or a couple, but with kids the space is too crowded, especially with 3 baggages. But the hotel staff were kind and they switched us to a much bigger room, of course paying a higher rate, but it was worth it, room was very comfortable, clean and we enjoyed our stay there.

    A hotel with a history of grandeur in the past, centrally located in the heart of the city.

    Rooms and bathrooms need some updating.

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Location of the hotel is very central.

    Airconditioning in some of the rooms is antiquated. Some rooms have been renovated - ask for one of these if they are available.

  • Single

    It was walking distance from nearly all the places I wanted to visit on my trip. Further places could be reach because the metroline is outside or few blocks away (depending on line you wanted to take). Great cafes close by.

    Building in the hotel was noisy.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Helpful staff, clean and comfortable, relaxing atmosphere, central location, easy walking to main attractions and restaurants.

  • Single

    central location

    rooms are: old,smelly, ugly, no sound proof, air conditioner (window) making to much noise and when you are opening window you can't sleep because others conditioners are noise as well.bed is small and not comfortable. on site it's says that this is 4* hotel - forget about, it was 2* 50 years ago (in best case) when Garcia Lorca accidental spent there few nights..

    clean and comfortable air condition was not great, bathroom was small. staff were friendly and helpful

    The location was very good as was the price. I was pleased to have internet access at no charge.

    It was very surprising to me that a hotel which caters to an international clientele did not have a staff that possessed a good working knowledge of English, This to me is a major drawback inn staying at this hotel on subsequent visits. I would recommend this hotel, but with cautionary comments.

  • Single

    History and design of the building. Excellent spa! Room was quite spartan, but comfortable beds and very good sound insulation.

    A/C was not working well enough and it was 40 c in Buenos Aires...

  • Group of friends
    7.4

    Historical building.

    Old air conditioning and TV set.

  • Group of friends
    5.4

    Its certainly an historical hotel, but it requires a makeover. Price-quality is not good.

  • Single
    3.8

    The old fashioned frontage and foyer

    Staff slow to acknowledge you at reception, not overly friendly, rooms dingey,
