          A 4 stars hotel? Is this a joke or are you kidding me?”

          Being a frequent and easy traveler, I really seldom came across such a 4 stars hotel with incredibly bad services. - Arriving at the reception desk for check-in and handed over my passport, there is this guy who could not find my reservation details and doesn’t speak English whom just kept me waiting and standing at the reception desk for one whole hour while he serves another 4-5 groups of guests who came AFTER me. - This same guy was all the way showing his grumpiness and unprofessional attitude while trying to find me a room. Seriously is this the service that I am paying for? - I have booked the room through Agoda but this unorganized hotel does not even have my details and needed me to resent them my booking confirmation. - No single person at the reception desk speaks English or able to help. This hotel is kind of run down...I agree that some people would prefer the classic and old-stylish ambience in an old building, but this doesn’t mean a poorly-maintained hotel room!

          The staff was not cooperative at all and was very rude. They were exchanging money for very high price and i could feel they were racist when they saw my pakistani passport. So -10 for the manager and a young boy at the reception.

          Location, location, location. Facilities, free breakfast. Good view.
          Rooms were old in the fittings.

          The room was older in the fittings and especially the bathroom fittings. However the service and facilities more than made up for this. They offer a first rate performance with free internet (although the two computers are always busy). The staff were very friendly and always happy to make an effort to assist. Quality of the food was good, although in BA try and get out to enjoy the food. The spa facilities are very good.

          The food was delicious, big comfortable beds, many TV channels, free wifi and internet, lovely old style hotel with a great reception and bar area
          I thought the jacuzzi in the spa would also be free for guests, which it is not.

          I enjoyed my stay at Castelar. I had a quiet room at the back, facing the inside rather than the street. The food was delicious. The beds big and comfortable and the TV had many TV channels. There is also free wifi and internet. The hotel has a lovely old style with a great reception and bar area.

Había pedido una habitación doble, con camas separadas pero nos dieron una con cama doble por lo que ya hubo problemas a la llegada. La habitación es extremadamente pequeña. La calefacción no fue suficiente de noche pasamos frío y en el baño directamente no existe. El desayuno ok, pero no es el que se muestra en la web. Voy con frecuencia a Buenos Aires y por este precio se puede encontrara mucho mejor

Por otra parte destaco la predisposición para resolver problemas, ya que uno de los días de mi estadía ocurió un problñema con el agua caliente, y el gerente en persona se ocupó del tema, disculpándose por las molestiias y compensando a los huéspedes por esta incomodidad.

          wir waren anfang mai 5 nächte im castelar. preis/leistung ist super, für ein hotel in dieser lage. die zimmer sind schön aber klein und sehr hellhörig. Man konnte manchmal den nachbarn sogar schnarchen hören. sehr schönes frühstücksbuffet mit guter auswahl. gratis wifi uns SPA (getrennt für männer und frauen, sonntag geschlossen), das war aber nicht getestet haben. negativ für uns war, dass einige vom personal an der reception ziemlich unfrendlich waren. wir reisen als backpacker und somit mit großen rucksäcken. bei der ankunft wurden wir von oben bis unten gemustert und kamen uns nicht sehr willkommen vor, obwohl wir sicher besser gestylt waren als viele andere hotelgäste. netgativ war auch, dass wir am ende unseres aufenthaltes bereits am vortag einen transfer (remise) zum flughafen gebucht haben. als der transfer kommen sollte, war auf einmal ein taxi da, mit der - wenig glaubhaften - begründung, dass der transfer verspätung hätte. das taxi war natürlich entsprechend teurer.

Enfim, foi uma experiencia muito boa estar hospedada no hotel.O único ponto que nao gostei foi o carpete no quarto do hotel.
