First the good points.....reception was good, breakfast room and service/food were excellent.
Good to have computers in reception area.
Location is very good....central.
However, the room was very shabby. Poor décor, stained top cover, towels came from the laundry not fully clean. The bathroom was not too clean and the plumbing was antiquated as was the noisy air con.
Staff, well, it might have been a misunderstanding regarding language but I was annoyed that when a friend visited me in the evening, I was actually questioned about her relationship to me because she had stayed for two hours! I felt as though I was being judged and her too....it is the 21st century and could have been approached more tactfully.
The hotel had my reservation and check in went smoothly. My room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The room was quiet for my sleeping. The internet was easy to access and worked well. The breakfast was very good with an assortment of rolls. I needed to print out a hotel confirmation and the evening manager was very helpful. I would stay here again due to the location, the staff and the quality of the room.

"Perfect place at Tucuman - bussinees and pleasure"
This is a new hotel at Tucuman, located at Yerba Buena area (fancy area of Tucuman).Hotel restaurant is very-very good (ask for Miguel, the chef and owner of the restaurant, he will suggest you and explain the different meals available, try the gambas al pilpil or the filet with mustard souce). 2-3 Block from there is plenty of bars and restaurants. Night life in the area is amazing (you can go for a Bar or for an ice cream store at 3 am any deay of the week!!, is open...and full of people. Hotel have a good spa (massages are not expensive). The only problem, the credit card system gave me some problems, seems is more a problem of the Argentinian Bank system that the hotel itself...suggestion bring a lot of cash, if you pay in dollars, you obtain a better price in restaurants and other's ($13-$14 pesos per dollar instead of $8 by the bank system). Nice and clean rooms, cable TV, pool (weather is very hot).

Stay at the brand new Howard Johnson Yerba Buena hotel when traveling to the capital city of Tucuman in Argentina. Located in …More
This hotel is very well kept and is the thick of things in downtown Tukuman. We only stayed one night, arriving in the evening and leaving the next day at noon but we were very pleased with everything. The room is small but well appointed and the bathroom is very nice. Even though the hotel is on a busy street, we slept well.
Breakfast is in the restaurant on the main floor of the hotel which is frequented by many locals. There is a buffet of sorts but the gist of it is coffee and juice, yogurt and breads. There was a fruit cocktail and also some pieces of fresh fruit. It is the usual fare everywhere. No better no worse. I decided to order an expresso which I paid for. it was very good.
We took a cab from the bus station to the hotel, but the next day we walked. It was raining which made it a bit soggy, but otherwise it is a 20 minute walk.
