Howard Johnson Plaza Florida

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I selected this hotel because it was close to the port and Florida Street is full of shops to keep the ladies entertained + numerous restaurants. WE arrived at the airport and decided to book a taxi for the convenience instead of the bus. The bus service is very good and costs US$13 per head and the taxi was US$22 per head. Florida Street is a very long arcade so the taxi is unable to drive you to the front door, but is was just a short walk. The reception is very small and located on the 2nd floor and first impressions are not that pleasing but we did find the rooms to be of a good size and was very comfortable. The free Wi-Fi worked well and the complimentary buffet breakfast on the same level as the reception was adequate. WE booked a city tour on the double decker bus but thought it was overpriced at approx. US$40 per person and didn't really give us much to see. We did booked a Tango show at the Galerios Pacifico and we were blown away by the level of expertise displayed. There wasn't any dinner with this one but we certainly felt is was value for money. The hotel is an excellent choice when joining or leaving a cruise and offers plenty of options at very reasonable prices.

On a pedestrian mall so a bit difficult when catching a taxi from the airport. Staff were friendly. Room was a good size and bed was comfortable enough.Breakfast was good. Easy to catch a taxi to the port for the beginning of our cruise.

Right on Florida street , pretty safe location. It's on a fun busy pedestrian street, with no cars allowed. You take the lift up one floor to reception, where the staff are very friendly and speak a bit of English which is good! Quite a small hotel, rooms are basic but clean and quite big. Wifi is pretty good, breakfast is just your usual Argentinian one, with cereal, juice, toast, fruit and the sweet treats. This hotel is great for families, because some of the rooms have 2 queen beds which is very rare in Argentina. Overall it's a good place to stay, and the room rates are fair.

We got stolen in this hotel. Someone decided to take one of my best clothes during the room cleaning.and the hotel did not do anything to repair the damage. This hapenned on the last day that we were there. I do recommend you find a better and safe place to relax and enjoy Buenos Aires completely.

Right on Florida street, a fun and busy pedestrian street, no cars allowed. Rooms are great as well as breakfast. Wifi was average. There is starbucks right at the entrance of hotel and a shopping centre within walking distance. Another highlight of Buenos Aires is the old and beautiful theatre turned into a bookstore called "El Ateneo" is only a 10 minute walk from the hotel. We booked for a taxi day before departing but the next day as we waited in the reception, our taxi never came? Another receptionist simply wrote down the street name where we could hail the taxi ourselves. Not very ideal when you are travelling at 5am in the morning and still a bit dark outside. A little extra care in that department would've been nice.

For folks familiar with Howard Johnson's properties in the USA, this hotel will come as a surprise. It's not a traditional HoJo. Rather, it's a fairly modern 3 1/2 star full service hotel in what is perhaps the most central location in Buenos Aires. The street in front is a pedestrian mall, but a taxi can drop you off 25 meters in either direction (at the Plaza San Martin or Paraquay Street). This is a business/tourist neighborhood, which I think is more good than bad, as it is lively and safe. In previous years, downtown (the microcenter) was inundated with homeless (think San Francisco), but they've somehow now solved that problem and downtown is once again a good place to stay in Buenos Aires. Rooms are large and decently furnished. The breakfast, while not delicious, is probably better than any free motel breakfast in America. The real scrambled eggs are certainly an asset, and there's ham, cheese and assorted baked items (including many desserts, which I find strange, but is common on Argentine breakfast buffets). The staff is reasonably helpful and friendly, and most speak decent English. Room rates are fair, but the best deal is if you have Wyndham Rewards points and use their cash & points option. The hotel is also a good deal if you're a family or group, because some of the rooms have 2 queen-sized beds (rare in Buenos Aires) and there's no extra charge for up to 4 people in the room.

This hotel is located in a very safe area and great for shopping. Spacious, clean rooms with very comfortable beds. Restaurants within walking distance. Breakfast every morning included fresh fruit, cereal, yogurt, eggs, several meats and cheeses, delicious pastries, juice and coffee. The reason for 4 stars is their bar was very limited...overall a great place to stay

The location was very convenient to me, the rest was pretty average/basic. My too had windows looking at the inside... Hotel staff was kind and polite though. Breakfast not impressive and repetitive. Overall average but good prices.

Although a handy location I don't recommend this hotel at all. We were disappointed with cleanliness and service. The elevator was out of use for the duration of our stay, it looked as though this had been the case for some time. The pictures show this hotel needs a revamp and isn't particularly clean. The breakfast made both of us ill. There were flies on the food and the pastries were awful.

The hotel has a great location on a walking street close to Galeria Pacifico. The room was very comfortable and spacious. Beds were great too. The breakfast buffet is good, with lots of bread, yoghurt and fresh juice.
