My wife and I spent four nights at Hotel Iruna and enjoyed our stay there. Our room was fine and our bed was comfortable. Between the staffs' limited English and our limited Spanish, we were able to get by. The breakfast buffet offered many choices - there were a lot of sweet pastries - actually too many! The best thing about the hotel, however, was its location. It is located right across the street from the beach! On the negative side, the wifi was spotty but we worked through that. As a worse case, we went to the lobby to get connected. Tip #1: If you are a runner/walker, run on the esplanade along the beach. Although there is some elevation, the pavement is good. Away from the beach, the roads are crowned and the sidewalks are broken up. Tip #2: There is fitness room on one of the upper floors. It not great but good enough to burn some calories and work up a sweat. Tip #3: Alongside the fitness room is a small open air patio - it is a good place to sit at twilight with a glass of wine. The Hotel Iruna offers a comfortable bed for good value in a great location!
If you're used to 4-star hotels, this is far from a real one (but a very nice 3-star if I should to qualify it). Nevertheless, the place is nice (rooms a little small) and the staff is super friendly. The hotel is conveniently located and that's a must if you like to walk by the city. Having a good place to park for free is a plus since it's not so frequent in the area. I would recommend it if you look for a nice place to stay without luxury.
This hotel has a nice wifi connection and a very good service. Don't expect much more, the rooms are small and mine was snelling mold. The breakfast is good for the Argentinian hotel standards. Paid around 100 dollars per night.
It´s from the same company as the Costa Galana 5 Stars Hotel, pretty known from people in Mar del Plata as one of the most exclusive hotels in the city. Great service, with a tiny bar at the ground floor and a restaurant I wouldn´t recommend (not because I was there, I must reckon, but instead because they offer a buffet as an entrance and two options as a main course) where you would have an excellent breakfast. You have a spa, a gym and a balcony to get suntanned. No swimming pool. I would make a special recognition to the staff, mostly from bell boys during the day shift (I cant recall the name, I think it was Fernando), very kind and welcoming. Also the maitre from the breakfast prove herself very helpful and attentive. Rooms are maybe too little, but perhaps it´s up to the rate fee we chose. It is located two blocks away from the main Casino and half a block from the sea. It´s a great location if you like gambling or spending your time at the beach. In a general basis, I would return if I choose to go Mar del Plata again.
The best part of this hotel is the location. Right in the middle of everything but with that comes the constant noise. IF you keep the window closed its no big deal. We stayed in a standard room for about $90usd per night, included WIFI, breakfast, gym and beach towels (ask at front desk). The room we had was EXTREMELY small but can't complain for that price. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
This is the very first hotel I have stayed in here in Argentina so I don't have anything to compare it to. However I have traveled around South America, Europe and Japan. I was traveling here for work. To me this hotel was very basic. It had everything I needed (except a desk) and was clean but I was disappointed on a few points: 1. My view- into the middle of the building and other hotel rooms. I could barely see the sky and certainly wasn't worth ever looking out the window. I understand not every room can have an ocean view but some sort of view would have been nice. 2. Noise- if you decide to stay here BRING EAR PLUGS. I was on the first floor and very near the stairs. Two nights there were parties going on in the dining room until all hours and I could hear everything fairly clearly in my room. Thank god for my ear plugs. I could also hear many things going on in rooms around me- showers, toilets, crying babies, opening and closing doors, etc. The doors and walls are very thin here. Otherwise, the staff was very friendly. The breakfast was included and a nice variety of options. I also thought the bartender was excellent! Patricio was very knowledgeable about the wines, friendly and cheerful, and he spoke English which was nice for me. Overall, my stay here was fine but if I returned I might look for another hotel.
The room was rather small and there was not much space for our lugagge. The window was facing other rooms in the opposite wing of the hotel - however with leaning out of the window you were able to see the sea. We arrived by car and were able to park the car just besides the hotel - they charged an additional fee for the parking. The wifi in the hotel room worked nicely. The breakfast in the hotel was good - like in many other places - the choice of fresh food is rather small. The concierge was very helpful and we were given an excellent recommendation for dinner.
I was so aprehensive about booking this hotel after reading the reviews on trip advisor, but I got a great deal on a 3 night stay here over a long weekend staying with my partner. I was very pleasantly surprised the hotel was very appealing from the outside in a great location near to the beach and the city centre. The staff and reception area were lovely and overall the hotel definatly lived up to its 4 star rating. The only down side were the rooms being a little on the small side but they were clean and well serviced twice daily. The hotel had a gym and lovely deck that caught the sunshine on an afternoon. Breakfast was sufficient and buffet style and adequate for anyone's needs. I would definatly stay in the Hotel Iruna again, it was just what we needed.
I had trepidations after booking my room at the Iruna and then reading the reviews here. But none of the negative things I saw here happened to me. I found the desk staff very helpful, they speak English or Spanish and did anything we asked of them with no problem. The room service was amazing, fastest I seen. Don't recommend the hotel restaurant, the food is so-so at best, but there are lots of restaurants within walking or cab distance, and the staff made good recommendations. Yes, the rooms are on the small side, but ours was certainly all we needed. Great ocean view, good TV, hot water, bidet, comfortable bed, top notch maid service. I would stay there again because of the great service, central beach location and reasonable rates.
Hotel looks ok from the outside, has however seen better days and has the charme of an Eastern European Hotel from the 70ies. Our room was horrible, small, filthy and looking into the backyard and all kind of exhausts and A/Cs. Dinner was also fairly poor and service not really existing. Don't know if other rooms were better than our "Standard" but would not recommend this place. Parking was good. Breakfast also fairly poor.
