Good Value stay - give it a tryPosted Apr 6, 2012
Pros: Friendly and helpful staff and great home made cakes in the breakfast buffet
8 night stay for a visit to Buenos Aires. The hotel is located in a fairly quiet street , and certainly our room had no issues with external noise. The decor is a little dated , however , no more so than other hotels I have stayed in on my travels, and for the price the hotel represents good value. The staff were very friendly and helpful , the front of house staff all spoke English to a good level and were only too happy to help with any queries we had and to call restaurants etc to ascertain opening times and offering any useful information. The buffet breakfast was good , again , if you want "Big brand" coffee then stay in the appropriate location , every day as part of the buffet were some really nice homemade cakes - try them if you get a chance. The room was fine with twin beds as requested , and was cleaned daily- again the decor was a little dated but nothing a lick of paint wouldn't put right , the only issue of note being that the air conditioning unit could perhaps do with being updated to a newer unit. In summary - if you want a good value hotel to sleep and have a shower then it's absolutely fine and good value. With a lick of paint and a small amount of work I would have been happy to give a 5 rating.

Pleasantly SurprisedPosted Feb 26, 2012
For the price, I did not expect much, but was pleasantly surprised by the hotel. They upgraded my room, giving me a room where the small living room/study was on one floor and the bedroom/bathroom on a level above. Breakfast was good. Staff were helpful in advising about sightseeing, etc.

Good location, needs a little touch-upPosted Oct 18, 2011
The hotel is within walking distance to the subway and to the main shopping area (Florida). It was very conveniently located. The location was our favorite thing. The lobby and dining area were quite nice and classy-looking. The breakfast was satisfactory. The hotel room itself and especially the bathroom were rather cramped and old-looking and seemed to be in need of some re-modeling. The hotel staff was friendly and very helpful.

Very outdatedPosted Apr 16, 2009 on Hotels.com
It may have been a mediocre hotel in the 60's, you can imagine now. Very outdated, dark, lacks the basic service for travellers Rooms are big, but not proper light, old brown carpets (!) roaches, The location is centric, but not so nice. Area does not look very safe as well.

You get what you pay forPosted Apr 1, 2009
Hotel is well-located in the Midcentro commercial center and close to main sights downtown. You get what you pay for - the price is right and the hotel plain, but doable.

Fantastic Value and LocationPosted Feb 19, 2009 on Hotels.com
Other than the fact that our room was rather small, everything about the Posta Carretas met or far exceeded our expectations. Excellent and courteous service by English speaking staff was great. Included breakfasts were well above what we had expected.
