Intercontinental Buenos Aires

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This a very old hotel located in a boring area. Rooms are old and have a particular not good smell. Food and service there is average. Around the area during the night you won’t find anything and you may not want to walk around dark and empty streets. Instead Take a taxi and go to puerto madero, it is close by.

We stayed at the InterContinental Buenos Aires for three nights. The hotel is what you would expect from a luxury hotel - marble bathrooms, hardwood floors, AMAZING housekeeping and very welcoming staff. Check-in was very quick. The Club Level offers a lounge with food in the morning and evening. Several white and red wine options are available in the evening (very impressed for a Club Lounge). Breakfast was included in the rate and the food was a great variety. If you are having breakfast on the weekend, I recommend getting there early as it gets pretty busy. The hotel is located within safe walking distance to San Telmo, 9 de Julio Avenue and Plaza de Mayo. I certainly will stay at the InterContinental when I return to Buenos Aires.

We have spent a very happy week at the Intercontinental.We arrived mid morning and were quickly checked in at the Club lounge.We only had to wait about 10mins before our Club room was ready for us.The room was large with comfortable beds.We foud the housekeeping to be excellent. As we had arrived in the morning we decided to have lunch in the Meditteraneo restaurant.This was our only mistake.We were shown to a good table by the window and,as we wanted a steak we asked the waitress for the menu and wine list ( in Spanish ).She returned with the head waiter who told us that we could only have the lunch buffet.The buffet was very poor with only one hot meat dish.We were made to feel as if we should not have dared to enter the restaurant,especially by the glaring waitress.It was obvious that local customers were able to have whatever they wanted to eat. That was the only problem during our stay.All the other staff were friendly and helpful,especially Cristina in the club lounge.We had a good breakfast in the lounge each morning and enjoyed the drinks and food in the evening. We found that it was easy to walk to most of the sights in town and only used the subway once.Good airport transfers were arranged by the hotel. We hope to return later in the year.

This is a good, but not a great, hotel. It is a classic upscale hotel, but is showing some wear and tear. Location is not the best as there are few good dining options within walking distance. Hilton Puerto Madero is a much better option if this is important to you. The gym We facilities are better than most. Customer service is also very good. I choose to stay here as I was able to get it for a good price....about $160 USD per night. For that price, it’s a good hotel to stay at. Much above that price, check out the Hilton.

Decided to stay here instead of my normal hotel. Glad I did. Staff fantastic - service staff fantastic as well as housekeeping staff. Room more than comfortable- amenities in bathroom simple but very good. Easy to arrange airport transfers directly with hotel. Two decent restaurants on site. Almost no restaurants in close walking distance. Starbucks fairly close. No close access to shops but when your in business that’s not an issue. For tourists taxis are easy and plentiful. Could be my new hotel in B.A.

I received great customer service from Mattias. I had a few complaints regarding our room: leak in the shower and soft bed. However, Mattias took care of the issues and also sent a nice bottle of wine. He didn't have to send the bottle of wine but that was a nice touch. In our second return, we enjoyed the room he assigned to us. I felt like he recognized our loyalty to the Intercontinental hotel family and treated us like royalty on our second return. Thank you Intercontinental Hotel for hiring a great asset to your organization.

When I travel for work, my company I work for books us at the Intercontinental Hotel, Buenos Aires, Argentina.....this hotel is filthy, I am in the Ambassador program, which absolutely means nothing, we get a free bottle of wine. I really do not think they have housekeeping.....the rooms are dusty, the floors have food crumbs that have not been vacuumed. I would not stay at this hotel if I was ever on vacation.

We recently stayed 3 nights at this very convenient, centralized hotel and had a wonderful experience. The room was very confortable and good sized for a large metropolitan city. The staff was very cordial and went out of their way to help us get around the hotel and this vast city. The concerierge was fantastic and gave us great recommendations to tourist attractions, restaurants, and of cours, a great Tango show. Transfers to the airport, done, transportation to other venues, done no questions and no cost. We took the $40 upgrade that gave us great breakfasts, access to the gym and pool, afternoon snacks and drinks and happy hours. One night we tried to go to the 17th floor for happy hour and the room was full. We left and the attendant got our room number and delivered a bootle of wine and two glasses. Water bottles for long days of touring were always availabe to us, again at no additional cost. Every afternoon or night we found our way to the main bar or out in the great seating areas of the lobby for a drink, or appetizers. The bartenders and wait staff were unbelievably hospitable to us and always help us over the language barrier. IC Hotel in Buenos Aires is a must stay

We are staying in the 4 * hotel next door Called ‘TWO ‘ compared to TWO this hotel The Intercontinental, is 7 * Please walk next door and visit this 4* it is more like a 2* no food, no wardrobe space or coat hangers, no drinks not even coffee, everything is on the cheap. We go daily to the Intercontinental to have coffee , use WiFi , have our meals, sit and relax , no one would complain if they had to compare the hotels, there is No comparison. In the Intercontinental the staff are friendly ,helpful, that cannot be said for the TWO hotel. You will be lucky to get a Grunt ! So please people do not moan about this fabulous hotel, if there was any availability we would change in a heartbeat ! The only good thing about the Two Hotel ,is that it’s clean. There certainly are no luxuries, ie shampoo, etc, drinks, food, room service, natural light , only poor false lighting. No other language on the short channel list than Spanish or decent non lumpy pillows. No wardrobes space but there is three hangers to each room. No room has a plug in the sinks. And the main entrance to the lobby and exit is locked 24-7. That must tell you what sort of 4* you are in. !

The Intercontinental Hotel in Buenos Aires is a beautiful property in a convenient location. Staff is professional, attentive and helpful. Concierge is ever-present and knowledgeable. This is an older property, however it is well-maintained, but there are some strange sounds at times. The club floor is very nice, and offers continental breakfast, snacks, and evening hors d'oeuvres and wines. I would definitely stay here again.
