My Buenos Aires Retreat

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 11, 2011

I spent Easter week in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Big mistake. Too many tourist that time of year.
Hotel cost skyrocket at that time of year due to the increase of tourism during Easter week.
The hotel was okay, centrally located, within walking distance of downtown, restaurants, transportation, sight seeing, etc. The service was standard, as was the room, which was overpriced. No real view to speak of, unless you enjoy looking at the building across the street.

Thank God the Hotel front desk personnel were fluent in English...as my Spanish still suffers a bit.

Unique Quality: The hotel had a restaurant but no pool . I'm not sure what other amenities the hotel had to offer.
Only view available was of the street below and the building across the street. There was a mini fridge in the room however which allowed me to purchase snacks at the grocery store located just steps away from the hotel. It was much cheaper to purchase goodies at the grocery than from the hotel.

Directions: Central area to downtown....not more than a mile or two from Puerto Madera.

Left us Stranded at the Airport

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 21, 2010

Booked suite online and arranged via e-mail an airport transfer in/out for an additional fee. Upon our arrival, after travelling 19+ hours to get to Buenos Aires, there was nobody to meet us. An hour wasted looking for someone with our names on a sign and/or trying to find an airport business that would sell us something - anything - so we could get change for the phone and we were finally able to get an explanation from the hotel: Apparently since there was no credit card on file, as we had booked online with a reputable travel web site, they didn't bother sending the car - this despite numerous e-mails back and forth setting this up, my asking if they wanted a card number, being told it was all taken care of, etc. . . We had to make our own arrangements and the staff seemed not to care! Upon arrival the suite we were shown has a small bed, and the bathroom was dirty. We asked to be moved and met with the manager in the morning. No effort to apologize for stranding us was made, although after much protesting we were shown another suite. It was still not as nice as the pictures! We also made the mistake of ordering room service. It is available only until midnight and for US $20 an order for a sandwich and fries placed at 22:30 arrived an hour later, and the fries were a handful of stale potato chips. As an additional note, WiFi is available only in the lobby. The star rating for this property should be seriously reevaluated!
