ENGLISH/ ESPAÑOL(descripción abajo): It is difficult to describe but I will try to do my best, it is according to your needs: if you need an affordable accommodation, and if you do not have trouble sleeping, it is ok. If you are the type of people you look at details and you look for a restful place, this is not the hotel for you. I stayed in this hotel just because it is close to my family, not other reason. It is located at a nice neighborhood of Buenos Aires, plenty of nice stores of any kind (food, clothing, laundry, pharmacy, you name it you have it; hotel is located at a corner. The hotel IS NOT close to downtown, you need to travel by bus, subway, train or taxi to downtown. It is VERY noise day and night, difficult to have a good night sleep, noises of any kind, buses until 2AM are passing by and trust me they are loud, and groups of people STANDING at the outside entrance of the hotel talking all the time, you will hear them a lot from your room; also a "cartoneros" group of people standing exactly in the front corner of the hotel are horrible to see and a little scary to pass by: I do not understand why the hotel do not complain to the Buenos Aires city police to remove them, they are disgusting. Amenities: breakfast: it is ok for Argentinians who do not eat protein during the morning: it is pastries, apples, canned peach, cereal, coffee, tea, milk. Pastries goes away soon if you get breakfast around 9 am they do not fill the basket again, poor service about that; I consider they should serve eggs when they know it is American tourists in the hotel but they seems to do not care; I was 18 days in the hotel, every day was the same type of breakfast, the only variation was one day chocolate pound cake, another day vanilla pound cake. Bedding: bed is just ok, towels do not reach the good quality for a hotel, towels are not quite white and most of the have spots, this is the MOST I DISLIKE, poor quality and care about that. Bedroom: it has a bar with microwave and refrigerator, sink also, bathroom is ok Average cleaning is good, service is ok, if you ask they help you but they are not about details. A woman named Alicia was very kind all the time. Front desk: the girls were very kind and helpful, more than the boys who did not seem to care anything. PICTURES ATTACHED: the first two pics are the hotel block in the neighborhood, the last two pics are the punch of "cartoneros"(people who collect trash to sell). EN ESPAÑOL: Todo sería de acuerdo a tus necesidades, si buscan un hotel no caro y no eres una persona detallista, este hotel es OK, pero si entramos en detalles... aquí va mi descripción: yo elegí este hotel solo porque me queda cerca de mi familia no por otro motivo; el hotel NO está cerca del centro de Buenos Aires, para ello deberás viajar en tren subterráneo, omnibus, tren, o taxi; el hotel se sitúa en una esquina de una agradable zona de Buenos Aires, con muchos negocios de toda índole que te puedas imaginar, lo que se te ocurra lo consigues allí, desde buena ropa, almacenes de todo tipo, lavandería, comidas, restaurantes, pizzerías, bar, peluquería, de todo! Como es una esquina, es MUY ruidoso a toda hora, imposible dormir sin ruidos, se escucha todo! y cuando digo todo es todo! Grupo de gente que se queda a la entrada del hotel a cualquier hora hablando, lo escucharás desde tu habitación, al igual que el tremendo ruido del pasar de los buses y hasta la bocina del tren a pocas cuadras. Recién a las 2 de la mañana que dejan de pasar los buses calma UN POCO, hasta las 5 de la mañana de nuevo el ruido Algo que disgusta es, ver todos los días a las 5 de la tarde, amontonarse en frente del hotel, un grupo de cartoneros que da miedo, adjunto foto desde mi habitación. El hotel deberia quejarse a la policía de la ciudad acerca de esto, así como no permitir grupo de gente hablando a cualquier hora de la noche en la puerta del hotel, pues se escucha desde la habitación y no deja descansar. El cuarto y baño son aceptablemente buenos, salvo, las toallas, viejas, con manchas que ni siquiera son lavadas con lavandina, esto es realmente DESAGRADABLE El cuarto tiene heladera y microondas. El spa general es solo si lo pides un día adelantado. Desayuno: medialunas, bizcochuelo un día de vainilla y otro día de chocolate, manzanas, durazno en almibar, cereales, leche, té y café. Si se te ocurre desayunar a las 9 de la mañana habrá muy poco y no agregan lo que considero desconsiderado pues está dentro del horario habilitado al desayuno. Recepción: las chicas son muy amables, los chicos como que ni les interesa su trabajo. Las mucamas, una llamada Alicia muy amable y complaciente. Adjunto fotos: las dos primeras son la cuadra donde se sitúa el hotel, las dos últimas fotos los "cartoneros".
Location, location, location, the Ker Belgrano is a short walk to the Green Tucaman Sube line, so central BA is a short regular ride away at nominal cost. For the health concious, you can use the Monroe St bike lane to safely run to the river P. The hotel is comfortable, secure and clean. Front desk staff are polite and speak English well enough to assist and solve issues (though there is no excuse for my poor Spanish).
Clean, but don't be afraid to ask for it to be. Front desk staff was decent. A bit round about to get to the point or directions. But it's Argentina and Buenos Aires. The kind of city you can fun a lot of fun in but wonder if you were better off having it someplace else. Thank God for the wine. At least this hotel is ok.
It accomplished the expectations and it even superseded them. It is a quite new hotel, maybe a 3 stars plus. Bed and pillows are not bad. Staff attention good. Breakfast abundant in quantity, not very varied. Neighbourhood is OK.
My wife, father and I stayed here while in Buenos Aires last week. The rate and location were great but it does come at a cost. The bathrooms are worse than European ones (extremely small even for one person), the street noise is horrible and the walls of the hotel are paper thin that you can hear people talking in buildings next door and in the hotel hallway. I was born in Buenos Aires and have visited plenty of times. I thought that the convenience of the location would outweigh things but with such a large transit system don't cheapen out and get a Nice Hotel Brand Like Hilton in Puerto Madero and avoid the hassle of a little over-rated place like this.
We stayed there for 2 weeks, The place is nice, clean and tidy. there are only 4 rooms per floor, which makes it quite cozy. The stuff is extremely friendly. For the price that we paid, it seemed too good to be true deal. And it turned out to be better than expected. It's not close to luxury, but the rooms are very big, the mattresses felt as if they were new. The rooms were equipped with a sink, cutlery and small refrigerator as well. During the time we were there there were some minor issues with one of the 2 rooms which were solved promptly. Located 10 minutes walk of the center of Belgrano neighborhood, or less than 5 to the subway station, so you'll find everything around. are close to every
Front staff is said to speak english. That was not the case this time... My GF is from here but I tried to practice my spanish. Slowly asking things and got rapid fire back without using body language nor eye contact. Again and again and at a low stress level. Not the best start. I had asked for a quiet room (or at least as good as possible, after all this is Buenos Aires) but got a 'frente' anyway. We used to live in this area an this street is ised by a lot of honking taxi drivers. Anyhow, after a while we got changed to a room contrafrente. Much better until midnight when a party started in next buildings patio. Not much to do than to use earplugs. The sliding doors to the useless balcony is of lowest standard. The hotel is small but with large rooms with kitchenett. The breakfast is good for the area. Spa area is small, bookable and really cosy for its size with large warm whirlpool, a roomy sauna (need maintenance) with nordic temperature and a roof that can be be opened (did not test). The stated time 20.30 for closing was stretched to much later, thanks. Beds are good but linen are not bug enough to go around/under the matress so if you move at all you will end up on the top matress. Bathroom is small with a stupid design. I like building houses, here no one even put thinking in to it. A small glass piece cover half of tub. Hard to take a shower without most of the water spashing out. A shower curtin would be better, but far from good since the lack of space hinder it. Overall: For the money and if want to use the sauna/spa: NOT TO BAD! If not: Shop around!
Nice, clean hotel one block from a main street and the metro (Subte). Rooms were comfortable and they provided a good breakfast. They stored our bags when we did a three-day excursion to Iguazu Falls. All the reception people were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is on a fairly quiet side street; we felt safe walking to and from even late at night.
This hotel was friendly and clean with great service. Requests were handled promptly. There are many shops, cafes and restaurants all within easy walking distance. Nothing fancy but would certainly stay there again.
I found the Ker Belgrano Hotel to be a nice and pleasant place to stay while in Buenos Aires. Recently, I visited in a business relate trip, and the location is very good, safe to walk around not too late at night and near various restaurants and little cafes.
