good use of time
location , price , frindly and polite staff
we had just half a day between flights , the hotel was a little tired but price was excellent and room was utilitarian style but comfortable enough. The location was perfect very central we could walk 2 blocks to the hop on hop off bus and take a tour of Buenos aires to make full use of our short time here.

Great central location - old but good value
Central location
Great value for money. The rooms and hotel in general feel a bit old but the rates were really cheap for this central location. Very convenient to walk everywhere. Staff were accomodating, after 2 days I asked for a bigger room with a desk since I had to work and they upgraded me at no extra charge. I'd go back with no hesitation.

Very basic, tiny rooms but very cheap.
Central location and cheap.
the hotel was what can be expected for the price. the rooms were tiny but clean. the shower was frustrating because water went all over the bathroom floor. the room had an air conditioner that worked perfectly, the tv worked but was tiny. there was no fridge or mini bar. the staff were quite friendly and happy to offer tours, but only offered tours they had arrangments with. i asked about a reccomended tango show and they told me it cost a lot more than it really did so i would book the one they reccomended. next time i will spend a little more to stay in a more comfortable hotel with better facilities.

Great Location
Great location, right on the Avenida 9 Julio and minutes walk from the obelisko. Very nice and friendly bell boy (Fachida, I think his name was). Breakfast was good.
Very old hotel, rooms have no windows that open outside. Needs major renovation. Front desk staff were not friendly at all but that is the same almost everywhere in Buenos Aires. The AC was very loud and old and not even sure if it was working properly.
for the traveller who doesn't spend much time in the hotel room this hotel is very good and the location is excellent. front desk staff are not at all friendly but that seems to be everywhere in buenos aires. on checking in i was give a very small, ugly room with no windows and not enough room to put two single beds side by side. when i went downstairs, the man at the front desk knew without me saying it that i wanted to change it and he gave me a better room! it seemed he was taking his chance and i found that very discriminating! internet was available but costs for a twenty-four hour period if one wanted access in the room.

Excellent hotel, in a perfect location, efficient and helpful stuff, very reasonable price, clean rooms equipped with all of the required facilities, great breakfast. In two words- near perfect
An English speaking TV news program is something that a hotel at this class should be able to offer -such as CNN or fox news

Nice hotel in a great location
Location, location, location
Its a little oldish
We loved out stay here. Its a hotel that most people in Argentina apparently knew of. Great location with decent rooms. We were upgraded to a suite room which was nice and big. Honestly, the rooms do look a little old and darkish but for the money you pay and location you are at, this hotel cannot be beat

Gran Argentino Hotel Buenos Aires
Lovely old hotel in the Centro area of Buenos Aires, great location, quick access to major points of interest within walking distance, offers a very nice complimentary breakfast, clean.
Slow elevators, but not anything to complain about
This lovely old hotel is situated in a prime location, El Centro, with very good access to major points of interest, many within walking distance, close to the theatre district and near the obelisk. The hotel has old brass hand railings which are so charming and the daily complimentary breakfast is very filling. I would recommend this hotel for anyone going to Buenos Aires.
