Good hotel in Buenos Aires
This was a good hotel that was very close to the National Congress. I enjoyed my stay. The staff was very friendly and helped me with questions I had about Buenos Aires.

Value for Money. Some rooms need renovations
We stayed at the Babel Plaza between March 24-29 and occupied room 606. At first we were given room 502 and it was in deep need of renovation so we moved to 606. The hotel is well located near Congreso, (5min walk max.) where you can take many buses (colectivos) that will get you all over town. It is also near the mythical Avenida Corrientes and the Obelisco. As said, some rooms are in great need of rénovations, and the hotel having changed name recently (from River hotel to Babel Plaza) is probably going to do so. Room 606 was confortable and had no carpet, a plus for me. AC worked well and the bathroom was nice. It had bidet, bad with shower, toilet and sink. TV with many channels but no foreign language channel (i.e.: no English channel) The breakfast is simple but of good quality and the breakfast room staff is kind, polite and efficient. The reception agent Jorge and Sébastian are both knowledgful, helpful and nice. We had good wifi signal all the way whether in the lobby or in our room. Considering the facts and the room we occupied, I would definitely recommend this hotel, as long as you take into consideration that it is not a 5-star. It has excellent value for money.
