Located in downtown Buenos Aires and just a few steps away from the most outstanding points of interest in the city, whether tourist, business or cultural. The stock exchange, the financial area, cinemas, theaters, shopping malls all lay around the hotel.

The hotel was very well situated and was within walking distance of everything I wanted to see. However, the hotel is a bit older and the rooms are in need of some renovation. The carpets, beds, bathroom fixtures were all showing some wear.
the most part, it was well cared for even if everything was new.
I do have two criticisms. First, the carpets were dirty and were in need of being cleaned. Second off, they have old, rickety "cage style" elevators and quite often other guests would forget to close the door all the way when they got out. When this happened, I had to climb the stairs to wherever the elevator was stuck.
All in all, I might stay again as long as I wasn't traveling with my family.
