Recent guest reviews
This was a very affordable hotel in an excellent location near great restaurants, shopping and sites! Rooms are basic but very comfortable. Very nice breakfast buffet which is included. The Front Desk staff is unbelievably accommodating and helpful! They assisted me with everything from recommendations to directions to airline boarding passes. In reading other reviews regarding rooms being tired, keep in mind that the price is extremely reasonable, and rooms are clean and comfortable. Love that front desk staff!!
The hotel is located right in a good location to see all the good sights of BA. It is a rather old hotel but it suited us fine. The staff was very friendly and attentive and the rooms were comfortable. I would have liked to see a bigger variety of food on the breakfast menu but overall we were pleased with the place.
This hotel is located in the heart of Buenos Aires. It's a couple of blocks away from Obelisco on 9 de Julio, where you can take a metrobus to almost anywhere on BA for about 0.40 USD. It's also on Avenida Corrientes, the Argentinian Times Square. Thousands of delicious restaurants, theaters, billboards. The hotel itself was really nice. It has an american buffet in the morning. The room was cleaned every day in the morning, it had A/C, and a little kitchen. There was minimal noise at night. It had a TV and wifi (try to get a room on floor 4 or 6, since that's where the routers are. We had a room in floor 5 and sometimes struggled with reception). The reception staff were incredibly helpful and nice. They even hold on to our baggage on our last day after check-out while we got a last glimpse of the amazing city Buenos Aires is, for free! Definitely recommend.
I bid for a 4-star hotel on Priceline, yet Art Deco is anything but. While the location of this "hotel" can't be beat, the property itself is a disaster. To begin, not only is it incredibly dated, but I can't seem to understand what about it is art deco (feels more like 1980s country). Needless to say, it needs a serious renovation. Our first room did not have air conditioning, and after suffering a dreadful Argentinian summer night (~95 degrees F), we had to move to another room. Fortunately, the air conditioning in the second room was better, though the vents were a dust factory. Both of our rooms were falling apart, from wallpaper peeling to stained carpets to dripping faucets. Since the elevator was a mechanical nightmare--slow and rickety--I opted for the stairs most of the time. For 4 days, the same 2 trays of food sat in the stairwell, next to a variety of cleaners, and each day there were industrial size bags of trash scattered throughout all levels, including directly in front of the door leading to the lobby.This certainly made me think twice about eating their breakfast--a blood sugar bombshell of carbohydrates and sugars that would ruin anyone's day (though I did like their cafe con leche). The front desk staff was kind, though anything but professional. In the evenings, music blared like a rock concert, creating more or a hostel feel than a hotel. Finally, wireless was slow and inconsistent in the rooms, though reliable in the lobby. Overall, this place is a disaster. I would not recommend this property. Oh, and Priceline: it's time to adjust this hotel's rating.
Definitely not the highlight of our Argentina trip. I must have been fooled by the website photos. The main positive is the location. That's the end though. This place needs a refurbishment. On this same trip, we also stayed at Aspen Suites Hotel (Esmerelda 933) for a similar price. The difference between the two was stark. Art Deco's rooms were dirty and small, the breakfast very poor (bread, pastries, cereal, apples and packet biscuits??), but the 'topper' was the cockroach crawling across the breakfast bar. Stay at Aspen Suites!!!!!
This is my 3rd or 4th stay at this centrally located hotel in Buenos Aires. The lobby when you walk in is charming and the manager/owner speaks pretty good english. I talk to him in Spanish, he answers me in English! The rooms are not fancy, but they are clean and all include a small kitchenette with a two burner gas stove (and tea kettle), small fridge, wet bar with sink. If you rent one of the suites, which I have done in the past you get 2 rooms plus a kitchen with a full size refrigerator. They may have bigger suites but I'm not sure. I think some people come and stay for a while, like renting an apartment . They will change US dollars for you, and they give a much better exchange rate than the bank, they prefer $50/$100 bills rather than 20s. If you only have twenties they will give you a slightly lower exchange rate, not sure why. If you are looking for a centrally located hotel, (one block from the Colon Theater) at a moderate price, this is the place.
Had a very enjoyable two night stay here. The guy on the front desk was very helpful with any questions we had and spoke good English. Breakfast was good - variety of breads, pastries, fruits etc. Our room was very clean and quiet. Location wise it's pretty good - in a busy part of town down a side street so not too much noise from traffic. Loads of restaurants / take-away places within 5 minutes walk.
We came to Art Deco after staying one not so nice night at a nearby hostel, the guy at the desk we very welcoming and even upgraded us to a bigger room with a kitchen area for free. The room was massive with a double bed and a single bed, a kitchen area (hob,sink,stocked mini fridge, cutlery), and an ensuite. The room and bathroom was clean, and the staff and service were friendly - the hotel is advertised as a 4* and although it was lovely I still would class it more as a 3*. The location was good, nearby to the subway, shops, loads of resturants and sights - but off the main streets so nice and quiet.
The best the about the hotel is the location. You are in the heart of BA. The morning buffet breakfast is a good one also. This is not a 4 Star hotel, but the staff is friendly, nothing will be stolen from your room, and it is a comfortable place. I have stayed here many times.
Ok the air con wasn't great so we used a fan and that was sufficient. We had a superior room at the back which was quiet, clean and comfortable. It had fridge, hob, kettle, sink ( sic dishwasher! ) plates, cutlery etc so you could fend for yourself if needed. Across the road is a large CARREFOURS!! Breakfast was plentiful with breads/croissants, ham, cheese, a variety of biscuits, cereals, yoghurt, fruit and pastries. Eggs were available to order from the bar. The staff were friendly and helpful and the location was perfect for walking everywhere. Bus stops and subways were very close e.g. a bus to La Boca is just across the road ( No.29 - 6 pesos each way! ) We would definitely come back here again.
