Good value budget hotel

Would recommend Wed, Dec 9, 2015
After reviewing other reviews, we were not expecting much. It is true that this hotel has seen better days and could do with a spot of paint having said that, it is clean and functional and for the money we could not find a better deal! The staff were very friendly and helpful. The wifi worked great. The indoor and outdoor pools were average, the jacuzzi are clearly not functional and should not be included in an amenity list. The dry sauna was good just make sure it is on 15 mins before you want to go in.

Good location in San Telmo

Would recommend Sun, May 17, 2015
The hotel structure is particular but really beautiful, the swimming pool at the 5h floor with the glass floor looking the lobby is simply great. People are very friendly, the breakfast is good Just a small complain regarding the noise in the street during the night but surely is a common problem of all the hotel in this part of the city.

AXEL WAS BETTER

Would not recommend Fri, Aug 22, 2014
Both myself and traveling partner had to be moved to different rooms while there. I had black mold growing in my room and my friend had water flowing out of light fixture. The WIFI was less than expected. the card keys to the room had to be rekeyed several times. This was my third time staying there and my first since it became BE Hotel. Just lots of deferred maintenance.

A good hotel gone poor...

Would not recommend Fri, Aug 22, 2014
The staff was nice enough... but the facility was recently sold and the new owners just placed stickers over the old hotel name (Axel). All the emphasis and references as a gay friendly hotel have been removed... its is a rather cold feeling. Maintenance is lacking (water leak from the room above mine, a room door that would not lock when leaving the room, a refrigerator that didn't cool much less chill the contents). The congenial staff made up for facility... they were/are very nice people.

Dining

Gran Parrila Del Plata steak house! Ate their 6 times during an 11 day stay! Every meal was fabulous... and of course, featured delicious Argentina beef (especially the lomo/beef tenderloin steak! info@parrilladelplata.com

Nice place

Would recommend Thu, Jul 3, 2014
Very friendly, attentive staff, well located. No nickle and diming as I so often get at other places. Negatives: Was a bit hot in the rooms and it really could use a lick of paint, a bit of wire wool, and just a little basic maintenance to bring it up to par. But I wouldn't hesitate to return.

Entertainment hint

Bar Sur for intimate Tango shows.

Best option for near EZE airport

Would recommend Wed, Jan 8, 2014
Flawless check-in and comfortable room. Cold beer in the mini-bar was welcome. Not many other hotels near EZE; this one about 10 drive. Free WiFi in room and all around hotel. Nice pool and spa. If you are just stuck overnight in BA, and connecting through EZE, this is the best choice that I know of. Not cheap, but not outrageous either.

Value for Money

Would recommend Sat, Mar 30, 2013
Overall the hotel is getting worn, but you have to consider the value for the money paid. We had a great time meeting other fellow travelers in the common areas. It's true the hotel has seen better days, but the areas are clean and comfortable. The rooms are a bit noisy, but this is not a hotel to come to for a quiet stay. Come to the Axel for the pool, the Sunday party, a modern look and feel, the chance to meet other like-minded travelers, and a safe and secure place to stay. This is our second Axel experience (last time was in Barcelona), and we would pick it again!

Attractions

Take the Buenos Aires Free Tour. It's great, and you can't beat the price. They give a nice overview of the city and the history while walking along the major streets. Also, the guides speak English if that is a consideration.

Great Value, but not close to airport

Would recommend Sat, Jan 26, 2013
Found this hotel when this web site indicated that it was close to AEP airport in downtown Buenos Aires. There was a very special price offered, and the hotel mentions airport shuttle. Well, they do call a cab on your behalf, but they don't pay for it: the cab fare is on you. They use a private car service, and the $98. Pesos is more than you would pay for a cab. It is about a 15 minute cab ride from the downtown airport. Ok: While this hotel does market to gay guest, they also market themselves as "heterofriendly", and they are that. Very friendly and the gay thing just isn't a big deal. The rooms are very nice, but the hotel is very avant garde, so things might seem a bit strange to the conventional traveler. There are no doors or curtains on the shower, for instance. Indeed, the shower is surrounded by glass. It's cool if you like that sort of thing. Super nice amenities and linens. Very comfortable bed. And, the floors are bare concrete; no carpets. I did use room service for one meal, and it was first class. Excellent food and service. The bar downstairs is expensive, but most hotels are. Sundays are pool party days= beware. I found most of the staff speaks English. Fast WiFi throughout the place. The rest of the hotel is very modern, clean and classy. I would certainly stay again with the exception that it isn't close to an airport.
