    Nice bathroom but poorly ventilated so the whole place smells of mold.

    Great place to be an alcoholic. Dark, dark. dark. Trouble booking. Called and they said send the internet ad - we match. I did and they said, great rate you should have booked it. Asked for a room with a window- told they didn't have it. Then two days later, I'm one of two people. Last day a person appeared and offered eggs for breakfast - nice but what about the other days? I paid the same price? Sick to death of bread and bad coffee for breakfast. My partner found the place so lacking, he left. Full size bed not a queen. Night stands so tiny they barely hold the lamp - which didn't work. And the phone, which didn't work to call the front desk. I've had dorm rooms that were nicer. Look up from the bed and you see all kinds of garbage in the lights overhead. Floors were not clean.

    Hotel Babel is a wonderful place to be at in Buenos Aires. It offers a relaxed atmosphere in the centre of the city. San Telmo is a great place to be and offers a good start for the rest of the city. The rooms are excellent , as are the staff. Very good breakfast. One of the best value for money hotels we have been.

    Boutique hotel with 9 rooms in a great location in San Telmo! Plaza Dorrego is just around the corner with outdoor cafes and street performance tango dancers. Easy to walk to many places and inexpensive taxis everywhere. Very knowledge staff to help you plan your sightseeing days. Rooms are minimalist, but functional with free WIFI, and a simple breakfast is included.

    The staff was very friendly and helpful, breakfast was good and plentyful. Good location in San Telmo.

    Our room was small and didn't have windows, so the air got sticky pretty quickly.

    The staff were great especially Mateo and Jaun.They helped us with booking things online as most was in spanish and were always there for a chat and a laugh. If you like live entertainment Mateo has all the tips, We went to see Fuerza Bruta, amazing experience, a feast for the senses and the drumming show was great. Mateo can show you where to go for real Tango not the stuff served up to the tourists. Great location in San Telmo and for dinner,drinks, or coffee and dessert you must go to Don Ernesto's on Calvo Castro. Great food,great steak(found the rest in B/A a bit over rated) and the staff are fantastic especially the Big Crazy

    Very comfortable rooms although could have used a small bar fridge for your water. Nicely designed bathrooms although no practical place for your washing gear.(toothbrush,etc). Be careful if you use the toilet in the courtyard as the glass is see through and all is on
