We stayed 4 nights here. Small, but nice room. Warm water in the bathroom. Very good WiFi. They also serve good and healthy food for lunch. The location is very central, but boring as regards to Bars or Restaurants.

We booked this place online and even though we got it at a discount, we were really pleasantly surprised by the value for money we got. We booked a room for 5 nights and stayed in room number 407 ($30.00 per night). The room was clean, comfortable and VERY QUIET (especially considering the amazing location of this hotel).

The room was quaint but the pillows were moldy..bed hard..desk clerk was a bit snotty.The property next to the hotel had been demolished and there were trucks and equipment doing all kinds of construction..all day. The photo of the lobby was nice but when we were waiting to check in, I noticed no flowers and a broken down chair and...

I was pleasantly surprised about the Babel City hotel. It was very affordable and offered good mid-range, central location downtown BA. I liked the friendly and attentive front desk service. The breakfast was decent, yet lacked a bit of inspiration; for example, there could have been some variation of food served daily. The rooms very very spacious and had high...

Very well located, close to Casa Rosada and Buenos Aires central area. Also, have a very good breakfast, excellent service and nice/clear room. The hotel has free wifi and laundry service. Ideal to stay in B.A. central area and visiting for 1 week.

The staff were very helpful and the room was modern and very clean. The breakfast could be improved, though. The location is very good, it's right in the centre of the city (2min walk from the obelisk). Would recommend it!

It was a little bit noisy (cause the door was made of glass, and our room was in front of the elevator, so we heard everything that was going on outside). The suite is nice, comfortable. The bathroom is nice too. Breakfast was a little poor, but it was alright too. The hotel went out of power one day, and...

The location of this hotel is very good, and on a few occasions, I had very good help from the staff, including the ability to remain in my room until 7PM on the checkout day. But that is the best I can say. The rooms varied from spacious to cramped and some did not even offer any windows. The beds...

A few steps from Obelisc -heart of Buenos Aires- near of everything. This is an old fashioned but remodeled hotel, wekk located only 3 blocks from Catedral Station Subway. The rooms are comfortables At the lobby you can find a petit restaurant too, but the menú is limitated. Hope you have a good trip to BA.

When we stayed in this hotel in the Saturday night there was a party in the hotel till 5:00 in the morning - we couldn't sleep 1 minute because the really noisy music! The breakfast is terrible,...

Staying in San Nicolas

Neighbourhood Profile
San Nicolas
Immersed in the sound of honking horns and the footsteps of busy office workers, the Microcentro area of San Nicolás is where visitors will encounter the true hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, walking down streets lined with office buildings and banks. The financial district is well-known for its vibrant atmosphere and unstoppable rhythm during office hours. After dark, the hubbub and migrates to Corrientes Ave., where theatre lovers might start their evening at a play and end it in one of the many traditional pizzerias nearby. During the day, Corrientes is known for its many bookshops and classic cafés, which are located just minutes away from some famous landmarks, like the Obelisco, Avenida 9 de Julio, and the Teatro Colon.

“Choose a room away from the elevator, to avoid noise.”

“Courtyard facing rooms are quieter but bear in mind that on the upper floors, the courtyard ceiling is open - so if it rains, the walkway to the rooms is soaked.”
