  • A Good Hotel In a Good Location

    by

    This small hotel is located better than most in this huge city. It is half a block from the Av Florida pedestrian mall. It has a pretty good restaurant next door,an ATM on the other side and several small cafes right across the street. The Retiro bus terminal is a short taxi/remis ride away. You can walk to the port area with its many restaurants and the ferry teminal. The national airport (Aeroparque) is not far away (taxi). There is plenty of shopping in every direction starting just out the front door.
    The management is very nice and don't worry if you don't speak Spanish. Pablo is a very nice guy and can advise you about just about anything. You can check out your e-mail and the weather for 2P per half hour (pretty expensive but convenient). They will help you with tours and calling a taxi or remis.
    The rooms vary in size and accomodations. We stayed there 4-5 times. The beds were always good. The bathrooms a bit small. There was plenty of hot water and an overhead fan. The AC worked and we had cable TV. A typical breakfast (bread, media lunas, butter, coffee, tea or mate' and juice) was part of the price. The hotel had many foreign tourists. The price for a double with bath was (Nov-Dec) around $38USD.
    The only drawback was the traffic noise that I noticed at night. Close the window, fire up the AC and it was usually OK even for this insomniac.

    Unique Quality: Very good location and excellent management. For downtown Buenos Aires, the price seemed pretty good. It's also safe with a 24 hour front desk.

    Directions: Retiro neighborhood not too far from the port area.

    great budget choice!

    by

    I have stayed twice at the Frossard in October of 2002 and in February of 2003. The price was rigth at USD $ 16.00 for a single room with bath and breakfast in this unique hotel.

    The first time I chose the cheapest room without Air Con as it still was not too hot and I slept with the window open. The second time it was really necessary due to the humidity.

    Hospedaria agradável e bem localizada

    by

    Tipo uma hospedaria européia, mas com banheiro nos quartos. Uma casa antiga estilo francês, portaria no sobrado, escada antiga e elevador idem (vide foto).
    Recentemente reformada, limpa, tranquila, pessoal atencioso e educado.
    Evite o quarto 16 (apertado). Peça o 18 ou um no primeiro piso.

    Unique Quality: Muito bem localizada para quem quer ficar perto do movimento do Centro.
    Só não tem telefone nem frigobar no quarto.
    Foi U$24 o casal (se 3 ou mais noites). [Revisão: agora é US$35 o casal (2004)].
    Café da manhã incluído mas simplório - peça para substituir as enjoativas medialunas (croissant doce) por tostadas (torradas). Descobri ao sair que pode-se tomar o café no quarto.

    Directions: Fica em quarteirão formado por Florida e Lavalle, as mais movimentadas ruas de pedestre do Centro.

Just Some Odds 'n Ends

A few thoughts that might prove helpful to someone out there.
The international airport is way out of town. While the cost may be more on weekends or after dark, it was 40 pesos from there to my hotel near the Retiro bus station.
The bus station has several remis companies outside where the buses arrive and depart. Although they may cost more than the taxis out front, they will be safer and you won't be driven all over BA to jack up the meter.
At the national airport, there is a Manuel Tienda Leon right as you leave the arrivals area. You can hire a remis into town. It cost 19 pesos/$6.50USD to get to the Hotel Frossard on Tucuman just up from Av
Florida in Retiro.
At the ferry terminal you cant easily get a remis unless your Spanish is fair and you can find a telephone that works. All arrivals seem to use the taxis lined up in the front. We had an uneventful ride to Retiro bus terminal for 5 pesos including a small tip. It was metered.
The Buequebus hydrofoil from BA to Colonia, Uruguay cost less than $30 per person. The trip was comfortable and took about 55 minutes. It's first come, first served so if you want a window seat get in the line when you see it forming up.
When your vacation is over, you might want to get to the international airport (Ezeiza) well before the recommended 2 hours. It took a looooooong time to get through all the mess. Don't know if it was normal, but I would not doubt it. We stood in a long line to get a boarding pass inclulding a carry on bag check. Then another line to pay an airport tax of $18 each. Then another very long line to get through Argentinian customs. Then another line to go through security. The plane finally took off 1 hour late.

Might want to check the reviews at www.tripadvisor.com and then go to Buenos Aires hotels. Seems to have some mixed reviews.
