After several years of staying at a different Apart-Hotel we decided to make a change and we were pleasantly surprised with this "old gem" what lacks in certain amenities or comfort of a four or five stars hotel is compensated for the friendly staff and the FABULOUS breakfast buffet and is near a lot of "must see" items in Buenos Aires. You could still "feel" the "charm" when famous writer Garcia Lorca stayed at this hotel around 1930. And if you want to visit and enjoy a "boliche atmosphere" of Old Buenos Aires don't miss a Saturday Show at the Guyana (half a block) from the Castelar: Four or five hours of Argentinian songs and dance , dinner and wine for less than US $ 60.00 and you can walk back to the hotel (You can't go wrong, but better reserve an spot Saturday afternoon)

-The hotel is located right in the middle of the action, walking distance to touristic sites, great restaurants, the 'Subte' station is only 10 mins away. Despite the fact that 9 de Julio is the busiest street of BA, the room was quiet, the windows are soundproof I believe.
-The gym is quite small, but perfect for a basic workout with 2 treadmills, stationary bikes and a couple of weights.
-Housekeeping staff is excellent, even though I did not require cleaning every day, they made sure I had fresh towels and amenities available.
-The breakfast buffet offers a good spread of local and international dishes (eg fresh fruits, cereals, cold cuts, cheeses, eggs, bakery etc.)
-The wi-fi worked perfectly well throughout my whole stay
-Requested for late check-out, they have granted me the room till 7 pm with no extra charge

Very contemporary, clean, spacious. Staff is extremely helpful. Breakfast adequate but not special. Neighborhood is a bit dicey, but unfortunately, that's more common now in Buenos Aires. Easy walk to the subways, but apparently you don't want to walk there at night. Best to pay in Pesos, rather than in dollars ahead of time.
I really enjoy the hotel howevever the rooms were a little bit too small. I love the decoration and so typical of Buenos Aires. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. Other detail that I was disappointed thewater in the hot tub in the patio was dirty. They should have a cover like we do here in USA.
