Hollywood-like nostalgic hotel in Buenos Aires

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)

I was moving from one hotel to another while in Buenos Aires and for two nights I stayed at this hotel because of its proximity to the historic Plaza de Mayo (got its name after independence from Spain on May 25, 1810). When entering, you get a nostalgic Hollywood feel with the grand lobby and high ceilings. Check-in was easy, and I was given a small standard room with 2 small beds and a bathroom which looked like it came from a 1950’s movie. But I heard the superior rooms are bigger and more luxurious.
So, I go out to explore outside the hotel and was surprised when there was a civil demonstration outside. Curious, I stood outside the hotel and all of a sudden a masked man ran past me and threw a bottle right at the window of the bank beside the hotel. Hmmmmm…well, I went inside and the receptionist said not to worry since they really never throw stuff at the people themselves. So, I just waited for the picketers to totally pass before I went out again. Better be safe than sorry...It is very close to that tall obelisk in the middle of the big boulevard. Overall, a nice hotel from where you can walk around to see historic Argentina...

I made a video of my short trip to Buenos Aires on Youtube. Hope you like this:

I stayed here 5 nights in Feb. 2005 and loved it. I booked my single room online through hotelscentral.com for $35/night U.S. My room didn't have a view but had all the amenities. It's also air conditioned and you really need it in the summer. I would definitely stay here again.

Unique Quality: The breakfast buffet is wonderful (included) with eggs, fruit, pastries etc. The staff is bilingual and very helpful in assisting with tours and transportation. The location is very central and you can walk all over from the hotel. The use of the spa is included, separate for men and women. Sauna, steam and turkish bath. They provide lockers, robes, towels. I got a 30 minute massage which wasn't the best I've ever had, but hey, for $33 pesos, who can complain?
You even get cable TV with lots of channels, some in English with Spanish subtitles...a great way to practice your Spanish.

Directions: Downtown, within blocks of Florida St., Teatro Colon, etc.
