The hotel is situated perfectly, off San Martin Square. The area has many small restaurants and is well suited to walking to all the important sites. The hotel staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. They were able to make reservations for bus tours, trips, and tango shows. The breakfasts were good. The room size was a tad small but everything worked well and one doesn't spend a lot of time in the room with so much going on in the city. It really is the perfect little boutique hotel. I would highly recommend this hotel and would definately return to it.
This is the worst experience we had. The "hotel" is actually worst than hostel. The sheets in rooms are dirty, the rooms themselves are old and desolate. The worst thing are bathrooms - there is a toilet and a shower in the form of a tube sticking out of the wall. The whole floor and toilet seat are all wet after somebody takes a shower, because this "shower" is not separated from the rest of the bathroom. I suspect that the good reviews here are fake. The "hotel" does not look like the pictures - I think there must have been a lot of editing on these pictures. And the picture of the bathroom is just a plain fake. We just decided to find something else for the night and did not ask for the money back, because we don't know any Spanish and we did not want to argue with the guy on reception. He did not look very surprised when we turned our key in and checked out either. I suspect that it happens a lot of times, that people just go to another hotel or hostel the very same day when they check in.

"It is a very comfortable , clean and safe hotel,"
What a nice hotel with good staff, the hotel is at the heart of the city few blocks from the obelisk. The area is very safe . Try the French Brioche Restaurant. The pastries are to die for. If you arrange your trip there's a tourist agency across the hotel or the hotel staff arranges it for you .
"A pleasant surprise! Spacious room; good location"
The hotel is small and cozy with a very friendly and accommodating staff. We were pleasantly surprised by how spacious our room was. My wife insisted on leaving the chamber maid an extra large tip for how well she cleaned and serviced our room. The desk staff was so helpful with recommendations, suggestions, and aid when a prearranged ride to a Tango dinner show didn't arrive, that I left a generous tip for them to share, a rare thing for me to do. The hotel could not be better situated in the center of the city and one a pedestrian-only shopping street/promenade: famous Florida Street. The only downside, the only downside is that taxi's can't get closer than one hundred yards to the hotel's entrance. We don't have many, if any, Howard Johnson Hotels in the USA anymore. My wife and I were a little skeptical about the brand before we arrived in Argentina, but we found that the brand is well known and well respected throughout Argentina. We would recommend the HJ-Florida Street, Buenos Aries to anyone.
It was just "ok" nothing more nothing less. Check in was a bit of a game. Expedia sent me the confirmation, yet upon arrival they didn't seem to have any clue what I meant when I said Expedia. Took 2 hours to check in, and finally the guy was up front and said the reason for the delay was because the room wasn't ready... he could have just said that to begin with. The room was old and poorly kept, and the overall experience was sub-par for a supposed 3 star hotel, I'd give it 1, maybe 2. For a few bucks more, stay in a nicer place.
