One good thing was the staff was friendly and helpful until the day we checked out and then the girl didn't know what she was doing and we had to catch the ferry to Montevideo so we left without an invoice for our stay but she said they would email it which never happened. Sure the place is Rustic etc. but most are comfortable and you enjoy your stay. No elevator and long flights of stairs to haul your luggage up. Loud music until the late hour. Filthy shower and sheets that do not fit the bed.
I stayed at this so-called "hotel" for 2 weeks during the tango festival and mundial 2012 (late august). 1) Location and accessibility: - Definitely not the best part of Buenos Aires. There is nothing to see or do in the hotel immediate vicinity, the streets are dirty, and you will not always feel safe, especially at night. - On the bright side, the hotel is very close to a subway station (Venezuela on line H) which is 2 stops away from Corrientes avenue (line B). 2) Building: - It does not look like a hotel. Rather, an normal appartment with a locked door and interphone. Basically, every time you want to enter the building, you need to ring the door bell, a guy will answer through the interphone and you need to ask him to open the door. It happened several times to me that the guy did not answer and I had to wait for more than 15 minutes in the cold outside, ringing again and again until finally someone answered. "Sorry, I was in the bathroom" was their excuse, but this happened several times, and not a pleasant experience when it is freezing cold outside. - There is no elevator and the staircase can be a bit daunting if you have heavy luggages (don't expect anyone to help you bring up your luggage, by the way). 3) Staff: - Usually one person available at the reception, sometimes two. If you're lucky, one of them will speak english, but not guaranteed. - The staff is usually helpful. - However, if you are foreigner, they WILL try to rip you off whenever you purchase a service (tango show, laundry etc). 4) Room: - Decoration is good especially if you are into tango. - Not all rooms have toilets / bathroom. Mine (single room) didn't. In that case, you need to go outside the room to take a shower / go to the toilet. - Soap and shampoo are provided, but for the rest you need to have your own accessories (toothbrush, toothpaste, comb, hairdryer, shaver, etc etc are not provided). - Do not expect to have new towels every day automatically (even if you leave it on the ground, they will not understand the message). You need to ask when you need a new one, or specifically mention that you want it changed everyday. - No fridge / beverages etc in the room, but you have water dispensers outside. - No safe to put in your valuables. - The door key is a magnetic card. Sometimes it stops working for no apparent reason and you will be locked outside, in which case go to the reception and they will reset your card. - There is a television. 5) Showers: As mentioned in 4), you are lucky if you have a shower in your room. Water pressure is low and sometimes you don't have hot water, and sometimes you don't have water at all. Taking showers was a nightmare for me in this hotel. 6) Internet: - Wifi is available, but every 20 hours or so the router needs restarting. - Otherwise, there is one shared computer with LAN internet access. 7) Noise / Room temperature - Since everyday there is a show in the hotel from 22h to 23h15, expect lots of noises during that timeframe. Especially hard the first days when you need to sleep due to jetlag. - Expect your room to be very cold (or hot) depending on the weather outside. And, don't be surprised if your heater does not work. All in all, I do not recommend this place. You can have better hotels (and better located) for approximately the same price. The only specificity of this hotel, its tango show event, is actually a noise nuisance for hotel residents, and you cannot watch it for free if you're at the hotel anyway, nor will you get a discount.
I was a bit dissapointed with this hotel. The rooms were average and not decorated with tango memorabilia as advertised on the website. We had no hot water in our shower. The breakfast was okay. Price was good, area dodgy.
The external pictures of the hotel are a bit misleading as the hotel itself can't be seen from outside - it's upstairs. It's very secure, there is either a staff member at the door or entry system to gain entry. The staff are unfailingly helpful and many speak very good english. They helped with faxes, directions, translation, storage of bags etc. There's free internet and they allowed us to store our bags when we went away for a night. The room was full of character - very high ceilings, lots of wood, ornaments and pictures associated with tango. It was well furnished and had everything we needed. The bathroom was small, but well equiped. The shower was better than the one we have at home. Breakfast was continental and seemed to be laid out on a table early with no further checking. Croissants, bread, cheese, ham, coffee and juice - all perfectly adequate. If you were later to breakfast you would find the dirty dishes of all previous diners still lying about and have to search for the clean plates/mugs and may find the juice or coffee finished. If you went downstairs to reception you could start a chain of events that would eventually replenish these, but it was a hassle. The bedrooms are on a single corridor which goes round the tango show and is on the same level as the band who play from a balcony within the show room. This means that you are closer to the band than the people at the show. It is VERY loud and the show doesn't stop until 1115. Sleep is not possible until this time unless you are exhausted which we were on our first night - on other nights we just planned on being out. The music is part of what gives the hotel it's character, but it's too loud. There is also a singer in the show who is not very good, but also very loud. These shows run every night. As Buenos Aires eats late, it's easy to come back from dinner after the end of the show, but that may not be what you want. The bedrooms are up four flights (2 from entry to reception, 2 more from reception to bedrooms) of long, narrow, steep, curving stairs and it's difficult to carry suitcases. If you are averagely fit, they are not a problem, but would be a problem if mobility is an issue. The hotel is located a bit out of the main drag and you really need to walk/taxi at least 10 blocks before you get into the main centre, but that's reflected in the price.
Overall the hotel was ok and the staff very nice. I think it's good value for the price. The hotel was hard to notice from the street and the entrance and hallways very small for big suitcases. The rooms were big, but practically without any soundproofing. We were busy sightseeing during the days, so we had no trouble getting sleep. The rooms including the bathrooms were clean and modern. The breakfast was small and served early in the morning (cheese didn't look very attractive at 10am). Also the dishes on the breakfast were dirty so we only checked it out once.
This hotel was really a gem, we really enjoyed our stay here. A great value for the price. The rooms were reasonably big, and each room has it's own theme which was exciting. They also have a tango lesson/dinner/show which is fantastic. There's so many of those things in Buenos Aires, but it was convenient to have it in the hotel. I thought the dance lesson was very informative, the food was excellent, and the show was great as well. So if you're looking for a fun or romantic hotel and a nighttime activity, I think this would be a great option.
Maravilhoso espetáculo de tango, os artistas interagem com o público o tempo inteiro. O jantar em 3 passos maravilhoso e cardápio bem variado. Atenfimento excelente, funcionarios atemciosos. Super recomendo, muito bom mesmo.
Una excelente idea, un conventillo reciclado donde se puede disfrutar del tango tradicional! La comida también fue muy buena y la atención de los mozos excelente, te hacen sentir parte del lugar!!! Muy pero muy recomendable
Foi minha primeira viagem a Argentina e eu escolhi o complejo tango por indicação de uma amiga e pelo preço. Escolhi disfrutar plenamente do local que é hotel, escola de tango e casa de show. Então eu fiquei hospedada, tive aulasde Tango e sai para um jantar com show, e devo dizer que é maravilhoso, o local é pequeno mas aconchegante e o show é interativo você usufrui de uma experiência maravilhosa com um serviço impecável. O show que eu fui mostrava a evolução do tango, me surpreendeu. O hotel é bem localizado, perto de alguns pontos turísticos, do metrô e linhas de ônibus passam bem próximo, então se locomover de lá é muito tranquilo. OBS:Não indico para quem tem dificuldade de locomoção ou usa cadeiras de rodas, lá é cheio de escadas, não tem adaptação alguma. Nesse quesito deixa a desejar.
Appesar de barato,o quarto grande demais.Ar condicionado não funciona.Banheiro antigo mas chuveiro bom. Localização excelente, perto da rus Florida. Tem restaurantes bons em volta. Acesso fácil.Atendentes simpáticos.
