    Very good

    We were very disappointed with Buenos Aires as a city. It was filthy dirty and there were no shops open on sundays or public holidays. The beautiful old buildings were in a very bad state and the whole city needs to be cleaned up.

    The staff behind the desk were ok - not very helpful at all.

    Superb

    Reception staff made us very welcome and complied immediately with a request for a room overlooking the main avenue even though we arrived 4 hrs before check-in time Adequate bathroom and good bed - all linens changed daily with good breakfast each morning. Free daily access to the excellent spa was a big bonus. The rooms are not large but at this price, especially considering location with buses and underground station at the front door, they are a bargain.

    After a 13 hr. flight from Europe, initial feelings may be a bit jaded, but to me, reception was bright and shiny and first feelings were good, but my wife thought that the seating in reception was tired looking with well-worn upholstery - I think it looked a bit better in the morning! The room was smaller than expected and the decoration decidedly dull. The walls and paintwork were in good condition but drab, possibly to be in keeping with the hotel's historical connection. The airconditioning did little to keep the room cool in the heat of February in BA. But the room was not actually unpleasant, just a bit of an initial disappointment. Whole hotel though, is excellent value for money

    The facade of the hotel is very impressive. The tradition can be realized when you look at the doors and the ceiling of the hotel. The rooms are OK and you can feel an "old and romantic" environment. The elevator needs refurbishment. Breakfast is very good and includes beautiful and juicy fruits (some of them seems to be polished). The neighbor is good, also. Definitely a good place to stay.

    Superb

    Hotel was in a very good location and the front desk / concierge extremely efficient and accomodating. Breakfasts were also good.

    We had two stays at the hotel in the period of two weeks and the room we acquired on the second visit was superior to the one we originally received. Room allocation can be hit and miss but even the inferior room was clean and adequate

    Superb

    We liked the location, the helpful staff at the reception desk who were always willing to suggest ideas.

    We were surprised to find out on our first stay (we stayed 3 times in 3 weeks) that a small room qualified as no windows at all. This made us a little claustrophobic and we were able to upgrade the next day

    Fabulous

    It was clean, good Internet, good breakfast.

    I spoke in Spanish as much as possible, but my Spanish is weak. I felt some disdain for having to speak English with me by some employees. The bell man took advantage of my poor Spanish to call for some kind of taxi when there were many he could have stopped on the street - I was in a hurry to get to the airport. I believe I received a room upgrade. So some staff were good and others were not.

    Lovely hotel. Really enjoyed the decor and the feel of the hotel.We are actually coming back, we enjoyed it so much. Need to think through the organisation of self service at breakfast. You need more than 1 service point or at least a different one for coffee refills etc.I enjoy hotels which have a hint of grandeur and history.

    Some desk staff are great and welcoming. Others might like to improve on their attitude to guests.

    Central location, good spa facilities.

    Very dated rooms now in desperate need of modernisation.

    The hotel itself is nice, a bit old, but nice. They have three different saunas which are free to guests (not the spa tough), but they are way less nice than they appear on the website. Breakfast was ok. Services were ok, except for a little disgusting detail.

    We had bedbugs in our room. Not very many, but still! After the first night we just complained that there were insects, and we asked to have the room better cleaned. Then we actually discovered they were bedbugs, and the following day we required to get another room, where we suspected there were still some but we could not find the bloodie bodies at least.

    Superb

    The location was excellent. I particularly liked the inclusion of the circuit baths in the price of the hotel room. The convenience of a spa in the hotel was a nice attraction as well.

    Although there was a wide selection of foods at the breakfast buffett, there was no change in the daily breakfast menu. We stayed for four days and would have liked to see a change in the daily breakfast menu.
