No heater, no extra sheets or blankets
The heaters didn't work, they said they had no extra blankets or sheets to give us.

No frills, good enough for one or two nights
Staff was friendly and let me in way before check in time. Overall it was pretty good value for the money.

Nice stay, but breakfast isn't actually included
Really nice hotel. Our room was big and very clean with a decent bathroom. Good location too, and very close to a metro station. The only real downside was the breakfast which is actually just a packet of dry biscuits and instant coffee (no milk).

Budget hostel in centre of Buenos Aires
More like a hostel with private bathroom than a hotel. For the price and location, it is OK for a short stay. There isn't a breakfast included - unless coffee with powdered milk and two biscuits is considered breakfast. But it is so cheap we didn't expect much
