SA trip
Very nice area. Felt very safe here. Had stayed in ave de Julio prior to a cruise, which was also very central, but we felt not as safe.

The apartment was perfect for our week stay in BA. It was centrally located, clean and the staff were extremely helpful. I would recommend this to anyone looking to stay.

4/10 Fair

good choice overall, just lacking a few details
I'd DEF stay there again. The location, price, comfort, and overall condition were all excellent. The bathroom could offer more amenities (no shampoo, no "wash cloth" that we use in the US) and the kitchen utensils were "dated" but these are just minor. My items were locked in the in-room safe overnight and the security guy couldn't open it so I had to wait the next day. They need to "equip" the security guy to do more but overall, I was DEF very pleased and I'd stay there again. Oh yea, and for Uber, very few drivers could successfully find the street! that's not the fault of the hotel tho!

Good hotel !
My only problem was that some things in room are run down and wifi doesn't work. I stayed in 2 different rooms, both with same problems. Apart from those things, it's a very very spacious room with modern bathroom . Don't get mislead by other reviews. You get what u r paying for! This place is a bargain, so don't expect a Four Seasons

Save your money and avoid this run down location
I've stayed in IQ Callao several times in the last 7 years but it's time to say goodbye. The property is run down and poorly run. Upon arrival at 7pm we were showed to our room (8B) which hadn't been cleaned since the previous guest left. So we found an unmade bed, dirty dishes in kitchenette sink, and a VERY dirty bathroom (including excrement in the bidet). Just horrendous. Since there is no staff available in the evening, we asked the building guard for help. He unsuccessfully tried to contact hotel staff. He was able to give us the "emergency" apartment, which was clean but very rundown. Other hassles: the property offers no cleaning services, skimpy towels, literally only one roll of toilet paper (which may explain the dirty bidet), so you might as well be renting any old space in the city and given current rundown conditions this should compare to a 1 star hostel not to other properties in the Recoleta area. All in all, we had a terrible stay. So we suggest you look at the many other properties available in Buenos Aires.
