Great room in a lovely neighbo....
Lovely room with kitchenette (incl microwave), modern, clean at a walking distance of some great restaurants, the San Telmo Mercado (esp great on Sundays) and Calle Florida (the main shopping street). Staff speaks English at the reception.
Value for money. Highly recommended!

Terriblle place to stay
We were assured by our travel agent this hotel would have a four star rating. It is not a hotel but apartments. The room we stayed in had mould on the walls, a ceiling that looked like it was falling down, broken cups and broken safe and light bulbs that did not work The bathroom had a pipe dripping from the ceiling, hard grey towels, and grubby shower. Bed are not made and the rooms are only cleaned every three days.

Fairly disappointing a prebious stay in the hotel by the same owners just down the street. Although fairly new, the construction of the building is lacking in quality, and therefore noisy, and doors, windows, are showing early wear and tear. The hotel also just is not very clean, with fingerprints showing everywhere. In all, not a pleasant place to be.

Everything is fine, just, but ....
For the Manager knowledge: I asked for the higher priced room / luxury room.
I know well the area of San Telmo so I wanted a quiet room, which on paper is the one I've received: facing an internal patio on the 1st floor. In papers it was right, but in reality I had a continuous noise from the air conditioning (not loud but easy to hear even with the windows closed), and also it was the chosen place for staff to meet, have a cigarette and discuss personal matters in a not quiet voice. This was not at all times, just after 8am! This chats came alongside the noisy cleaning process that would last from 8am until 9:30am in the neighboring rooms and corridor: loud talking, noise of cleaning, moving furniture, etc. I was willing to sleep a bit longer each morning so these was a problem.
In general the room need some painting and xtra cleaning, and I would suggest carpets around the bed, specially in winter time: the floor is plain smooth cement (alisado de cemento in spanish), a bit of a "brutalist" input in the decoration. No problem with this, except that is particularly cold in winter.
Shower time: for some reason it took around 5'+ for the hot water to appear in the shower. The first day I was freezing cold waiting naked in the shower, but next day I opened the tap and enter the shower a few minutes later. Sorted!
Contrary to what is advertised when I booked the room there is no standard ironing facility of any kind in the room ("Iron, Trouser Press"). When I asked for an iron I was told to wait a bit as "we have only one" for everybody. That afternoon I received the iron which I kept until I left.
And finally the lights: the ones above the night table are quite worn out (buy new ones, please) and don't extend properly. The position of the rest of the lights, all concentrated in one half of the room (near the head of the bed), leaves the other half of the room in shadows.
The Positives: The room was good, with quite comfortable size and a good sized bathroom.
The price is correct for what you get. Security in the building is very good and the staff in reception was great.
Location is very good and with close public transport, both buses and underground.
Good restaurants and bars are also nearby.

nice hotel at a good price
Sebastian and Pablo at the desk are good people. There are arrangements for cooking. The rooms are clean, and San Telmo is a nice area to stay.The only serious drawback is there is no one at the desk from 6PM to 9AM. So if you arrive in those hours like I did you will have an issue.
