We deposited our rental car back at Ezeiza Airport after driving up from the central Argentinian coast, and we took the shuttle bus to the hotel. First impressions were encouraging.
We were not wrong about the location. Avenida Cordoba is a main street in
the central city, and the hotel is only a block or so from Calle Florida, with nightlife, shopping, and dining. No need to a rent car here.
The hotel lobby is very modern with more than a touch of swank, and the
hotel reception was quick, efficient, and helpful. It was all we could ask for.
The room was, expressed in the best way, a bit odd. It was
comfortable, with everything we needed, and everything was in
good order, but it was rather large and mostly empty. It was as though they had finished up the hotel and made a room out of some of space they had left over.
They seemed to have also furnished the room with stuff they had left over, because everything in it was at least 20 years behind the lobby furnishings.
The hotel was kind enough to hold our bags on the last day, since we had an evening flight out. They also arranged a private car to take us to the airport
for about the same price as the shuttle bus, so we were able to escape some last minute hassel. In the end, it was quite an enjoyable stay.

The "room" was really more like an apartment. The large entry room was complete with a couch, a table with chairs and other furniture including a TV.
The bathroom included a tub in the shower and a hairdryer on the wall. The kitchen had a refridgerator and freezer, a sink, and a stove with some pans for cooking along with plates and utensils.
The bedroom, with a separate door to enter it, was large enough to fit the queen size bed with some walking room around it and included a small air conditioner unit on the wall which worked slightly less than adequately, but the bedroom opened out to a small balcony overlooking busy Cordoba street.
The downside - it was quite noisy, especially during the day. A breakfast buffet was included in the rate but only offered from 7am to 10am which was difficult to make after a late night out.
There was also access to the internet, but the solo computer had a terrible dial up connection which often failed and with the plethora of cheap internet places close by, it was not worth using the hotel computer.
Supposedly there was a health center too, but I didn't see it. The hotel staff was efficient and the daily cleaning service was unobtrusive. Overall, the price, the location and the accomodations made this hotel worth the stay.
