            5.0

            The only thing I liked was the location but it ins´t a very safe area.

            The room was very small, nothing with what they offer in the Internet pictures, no place in the bathroom to put your personal belongings neat bad there's no place yo hang your clothes or towels, small desk is not functional, long and cold air enters through the windows because it does not close properly, the noise of the street is quite clear in the room. They do not make dollar change in the lobby, and so I did not like the service.

          • Couple
            7.8

            We loved the freshly fried omlettes and pancakes every morning!!

          • Group of friends
            7.8

            Cleanliness of the room, location, breakfast between 7am-11am.

            Staff is, in general, is not pleasant with guest as you would suppose them to be. I booked a room with three beds and the room I was in had a single bed and a twin bed.

          • Group of friends
            6.2

            The RH Rochester classic is an ordinary hotel in downtown Buenos Aires - OK for an overnight stay before moving on, but without anything in particular to recommend it

          • Older travelers
            5.4

            I liked the convenience of having very quick access to restaurants and the shopping precincts

            I didnt like the room layouts, especially the bathroom. I didn't like the buffet breakfast selection. To many sweets (desserts) and not enough variety of good nutritional food.

          • Couple
            4.6

            This hotel advertises that its rates have been cut down from $190 to $50 a night. This is really not true and this hotel is only worth $50 a night, don't be fooled into thinking you are getting a bargain! It may have been 4* once, but probably when it opened 20 years ago as now the rooms and beds are badly aged. Check out at 10am is also not customer friendly.

          • Family with children
            6.2

            Rooms too dark, and room service too late. One day we came back to the hotel at 4p.m. and the room was still undone. They claimed I should have called for room service for room cleaning service???.

          • Older travelers
            3.2

            The personnel working at the front desk is rude and unfriendly. Nobody takes responsability, they blamed on each other, lied unshamefully. The room was small, dark, unconmfortable. Definetly not a four stars hotel.The bathroom wasn't clean, didn't have enough towells or soap.

          • Older travelers
            9.6

            the price, the location, specially like the beautiful room, the desk staff, all were wonderful. the extra personal touches, they gave us an umbrella when it rained, they phoned a taxi for us for our early departure, they spoke enough english for us to get by, the lobby was quiet and very pleasant to sit in and our room was above anything we expected - i would highly recommend the hotel, you get more than your moneys worth

            i didnt like having to pay for wifi, we have never had to before, and it wasnt cheap, considering we were only going to be there for about 16 hours, but had some bookings we had to make on line, we had to take it. probably should have gone to internet place instead.

          • Couple
            3.8

            The hotel is really at the centre of Buenos Aires....

            The accomodation are poor and the sofa of our room (was a suit) should be as old as buenos aires... We also had problem with the food... Me and my wife had a food intoxication after breakfest... Be careful! After that we decided to leave Argentina because the time to heal would be within 03 days...

          • Older travelers
            6.4

            The staff did help with the english and try to help us when we needed any help. The room was nice to have two bathrooms in them and a two rooms to sleep in. And there was only three of us.

            The add told us that we would have free wifi and they charged us a day for the wifi. The bathroom had mold in then. They did not change the sheets everyday the staff told me that they change them every three days.

          • Group of friends
            8.8

            It was a good location

            The air conditioner/heat was bad. It was colf in the room and there wasn't enough blankets.

            The location, the hotel staff and the breakfast was very good..
