                  I had to change hotels to get away from this one”
                  This hotel was very disappointing. My dark gloomy room had no window, and the air-con smelt mouldy. There was no fridge, and not even a jug to boil water or even a glass or cup provided! I felt like I was in jail whenever I spent time in my room. It was like a prison cell. My friends were staying in a similar room downstairs and their bathroom stank. Their was a lot of noise from other guests' doors opening and closing. Staff walked in on me without knocking. I had to ask for a towel. Breakfast, which started very late at 8am, was terrible - the first morning they ran out of bread before I got there (which was right on the dot of the start time). The kitchen and cleaning staff spoke no English at all. I had a booking for 6 nights but left after 3 and was so happy to check in somewhere brighter, cleaner and more comfortable

"We arrived late but this was no problem for the friendly reception staff who spoke fluent english. They were able to advise of local attractions and book us a tango show in the evening. Well priced and comfortable stay. A little noisy from the street from passers by at night. Try to book at rear of hotel."

                  I liked almost everything in Babel, thus i will describe what i didn't like. - There is no Mini-bar. I've already known. - The lights in the room are weak...In the Beginning i thought that was a indirect lighting...I was wrong. - The price airport x Hotel costs 185 pesos + tolls. Its too expensive. - The shower is very weak but the water is hot. It was cold there. - Babel is far from other neighborhoods(Palermo, Recoleta etc..) Is close to Puerto Madero.

                  The hotel was lovely, the service from the front desk outstanding, location was central and the rooms were great
                  Hotel Babel was one of the best hotels we have stayed at in any price range. The rooms were lovely, and the location was ideal for exploring Buenos Aires. We felt extremely secure since the front door was opened only by the person working at the front desk. But what made our trip particularly memorable was the assistance we received from the people who worked at the front desk. They really helped us plan our stay in Buenos Aires and the were willing to assist us with every detail of our trip. In addition the breakfast was great. Not only was there the continental portion that included a variety of fruit but there was an option to have eggs of any style or waffles or sandwiches. We both recommend Hotel Babel very highly and will recommend it to all our friends.

                  I left my heart in Hotel Babel.”
                  Location in San Telmo is outstanding as you are next to great neighborhood restaurants and one of THE BEST collectibles markets in the world. Tango bars nearby. Friendly staff and so helpful. Excellent breakfasts. Excellent architecture. Wi-fi worked in our room!
                  One which is easy to remedy. Lighting is very dark in the rooms. Great for romance but hard to read.
                  1. Great ambience the minute you enter the foyer. 2. Charming boutique hotel in building with historic facade and avant-garde interior design and architecture. 3. Contains only 8-9 rooms, all sufficiently roomy with excellent showers and functioning flat-screen television and wi-fi, all centered around a courtyard which can be covered in the event of rain. 4. Extremely courteous and helpful staff. Greeted us at 4:30 a.m. Made ferry reservations for us, provided cd with tango music, etc. etc. Great breakfast. Anything made to order in their own kitchen plus fresh fruits, croissants and excellent coffee. 5. Superb location if you are interested in the spectacular "flea" markets which seem to be at least 12 blocks long now with great collectibles for sale. Also superb location for several memorable small restaurants. 6. So glad we stayed there as it offsets the bad experience we had at the Hotel Moreno. It will always be part of our future trips to Buenos Aires.
