      The best is the friendly, warm and careful service by all at the reception desk, especially Alex and JuanPaolo. Answered our many questions so helpfully. We very much appreciated the tray of tea (free of charge, amazingly) served when we came in tired and asked for it, expecting to pay, of course.The hotel design,which has apparently won an award, is impressive. Safety deposit box in room and free was great. Bathroom fine. Would return.Loved the area too.

      Room was a bit small, but OK for us. Could have done with a little table in there. You need 2 bathmats as every time you shower, the water goes outside the shower and soaks the bathmat! A small matter.

      The hotel is in a great location for the Sunday market in San Telmo. The room was very comfortable and clean and the breakfast was perfect. We went there for the last couple of days of our honeymoon and would highly recommend the hotel to couples looking for some affordable luxury in Buenos Aires.

      The staff were great especially Mateo and Jaun.They helped us with booking things online as most was in spanish and were always there for a chat and a laugh. If you like live entertainment Mateo has all the tips, We went to see Fuerza Bruta, amazing experience, a feast for the senses and the drumming show was great. Mateo can show you where to go for real Tango not the stuff served up to the tourists. Great location in San Telmo and for dinner,drinks, or coffee and dessert you must go to Don Ernesto's on Calvo Castro. Great food,great steak(found the rest in B/A a bit over rated) and the staff are fantastic especially the Big Crazy Russian...lol.

      Very comfortable rooms although could have used a small bar fridge for your water. Nicely designed bathrooms although no practical place for your washing gear.(toothbrush,etc). Be careful if you use the toilet in the courtyard as the glass is see through and all is on show....lol

      Staff very friendly and helpful nothing too much trouble. Breakfast excellent.

      First room next to brakfast area kept awake by constant flapping of canvas cover over courtyard.
