Waldorf Hotel3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Stayed a total of 5 nights over the space of 2.5 weeks during a recent tour of South America. This was the tour company’s choice and obviously the choice of a number of such companies given the number of people checking in and out each day. First three nights were fine - room was comfortable for a couple and air conditioned. For visits two and three we were shoehorned into tiny rooms with single beds my children would struggle to sleep in! Air conditioning was hit and miss. Breakfast was standard continental fare but you could eat as much as you wanted. All that said, it was in a great location though and a handy base from which to explore the city.
While travelling a group, we spent two nights here going in and out of Argentina. I both occasions, the room was fair, but nothing special. Utilities were working, but not very fancy - or modern. Staff is friendly, but it is not the best neighbourhood. Our gude told us not to go out alone by night..
I stayed just one night and they were very kind letting me do an early check-in during the morning. The breakfast was average and even though the rooms were small, they were clean and the service was fine too.
Only gets one star simply because it wouldn’t let me continue with 0 Myself and my wife travelled South America 5 countries. And this was the worst hotel we stayed in over all. We had to move rooms 3 times in space of 3 days. The noise in this hotel is painful,between the road-the elevator (oh my god 😡😡😡) and building work going on continuously. Walls paper thin can hear every bang. Rooms are VERY dated and I mean very. Small and very old. Shower was a dribble...in all 3 rooms. And water was cold. Windows don’t close properly (in all 3 rooms) and aircon was touch and go. Breakfast was very minimalistic,most basic I have seen yet but edibale to be fair. And day staff were very helpful...can’t say same for night staff however. DO YOURSELF ONE BIG FAVOUR AND DO NOT STAY HERE... Literally 3 days of our life we can’t get back.
The hotel is midclass - to compare it: right now we are in the North of salta and booked some cheap guesthouses. Most of them were older and the furnitures used many more years. But: they all are clean and the hosts tried to do the best. The Waldorf is old, the bathroom was dirty (we found lot of hairs and dust from the former guest - hopefully just from the former). The rooms are loud as you can hear every tour of the elevator. The breakfast was ok. WiFi: only two devices. You have to login at least once a day. The quality here on the North (this is not Buenos Aires) is much better. Ok, if you book the premium WiFi account in the Waldorf (paid) then probably it is better. But to be honest: earning money with a WiFi account in a hotel where you can get free WiFi on every Cafe, hostel out guesthouse is little bit 2004... We miss a shirt which was away after we came back. I do not think it was stolen. I am pretty sure it was just mixed with the laundry of the bathroom and bed. But the staff was not interested in when we asked. Because we had to leave early we asked for kind of a lunch box because breakfast starts later. The guy from the morning shift asked us to ask the guy from the evening shift. The guy from the evening shift told us that breakfast starts at 7 I'm clock. I repeated several times that I know and that this was our problem. He said it is not possible. And again: breakfast starts at 7. We decided to call a taxi for the next morning on ourselves... We come back to BA and will take for sure another hotel.
The hotel is very well located in Downtown, close to main city attractions, and in safe streets (albeit a little dark during the night). Rooms (we took Economy rooms) are ok, with a small TV, a refrigerator and good size. The crew is attentive and they speak English and Portuguese. The breakfast is OK (for my American friends: scrambled eggs have an extra cost.) The only problem is the lack of good maintenance: stained carpets, some broken furniture. Good balacne price-service!
We stayed at this hotel during our South America trip. From all the hotel we stayed in, this one was the lowest quality and we asked for a room change a couple of times. We don't mind outdated furniture (standard rooms seem to be all the same) but when the room is dirty, one doesn't feel so good staying there. There were spider webs all over the ceiling in our first room, hair in the shower, wall paper peeling off. We asked for another room and got one with beds on wheels! Felt like a night in a hospital. So we asked for a new room for our last night and it was finally clean and the beds were normal (although not very wide). Seems we didn't get lucky this time either, since a little bat flew into our room during the ast night. Scared the heck out of us, but the staff at the reception was very helpful. Maybe mosquito nets on windows would help. Breakfast was okay, wifi not so much. Nice restaurants in the area. Would look elsewhere next time.
We arrived a day late as a result of a delayed flight but the staff were very accommodating, they allowed us to have breakfast and check in a bit earlier. They provided us with a map upfront and advised what tour services we could use knowing we had a shorter stay. They continuously checked in to see if we were sorted in terms of our flights and transfers. Close to Florida Street, mini markets, Malls, Parks. Rooms are very basic and so is breakfast( lots of bread and pastries).
Very well located but very cramped. Felt like a back packers place. Noisy. Paper thin walls. Shower was a dribble. Breakfast fine. Staff friendly. Wifi inconsistent. There must be other places to stay.
This hotel is in a great location. The staff were helpful and welcoming and the breakfast was fine. Rooms were a little old fashioned but perfectly fine. If you're happy with a no frills hotel, this will suit you.
