Old Romantic HotelPosted Nov 22, 2013
Pros: The room was clean, quiet and comfortable. The free breakfast was very good. There is a reading room and cocktail lounge.
Location: There is an excellent steak restaurant two blocks away that opens up early and takes credit cards. (Many are cash only)
Rooney's Boutique Hotel is very romantic. The building is about 160 years old and the rooms reflect that time period. High ceilings, tall doors, old style elevator, take you back to yesteryear. We could only stay two days but would have liked to stay longer.

Boutique Hotel in downtown Buenos AriesPosted Nov 10, 2013
The hotel staff are really lovely and positive. They were happy to make calls for me, book a massage and because it's such a small place they always new if I was in or out. Great free breakfast with fresh fruit, cereal, yummy baked goods and bread, excellent coffee. Third floor of a an old European style building in downtown Buenos Aries, looks a little sketchy when you walk into it (old stairs and elevator) but once you get to the third floor the concierge opens to the door to a beautiful lobby with high ceilings and chandeliers. Tango teacher is awesome. 24 hour concierge and security camera so I always felt safe getting in really late at night (early in the morning). I expect that the younger you are the more pleasing this kind of place would be to you, especially good if you're thinking about hostels because it's just a little more expensive and 10 times nicer. But there were other guests there in their 40's and 50's too. Really wonderful experience all around.

Hotel Rooney: a slightly-faded classic-and elegantPosted Nov 1, 2013
Pros: Convenient, inexpensive, and classicly elegant
Cons: See review about staff, above.
Location: Locate next to the 'B' line Subte stop, everything is convenient.
We had booked the Rooney for two days, and ended up there for six. The price was very good, and the hotel cozy and well-located. This is an older building, probably from the 30's or 40's, but thoroughly modern-except for the classic European-style 'Birdcage' elevator, which reminded us of older buildings in Paris. The staff very accommodating, except for one slightly dismissive young man on the night shift, but I suspect someone put a bee in his bonnet as his attitude improved overnight. Breakfast was Continental, but more than sufficient. The Rooney is convenient to the Avenida Callao 'Subte', which you should be using as it is inexpensive and fast. Try the Rooney-you'll enjoy the experience.

Slightly faded Glory just off Av. CallaoPosted Oct 30, 2013
Pros: Charm and location and price, if one books carefully....
Cons: Customer service training for one of their night staff-everyone else was helpful and knowledgable, especially the young woman from NZ.
Location: Centrally-located near the 'B' Subte and several nice restaurants...
Through the bank-vault front door and on into the bird-cage elevator, this hotel reeks of faded charm. Occupying one floor (the 3rd-or fourth) of an old building just off busy Avd Callao, Rooneys is both charming and laid-back. The rooms went from the floor up about 25' and were mostly original, including the charming foot bath in the bathroom. A decent Continental-style breakfast comes with the room, and most of the staff were kind and helpful-except for a certain borderline-surly young man who never did come up with a plausible answer that would explain why my companion's ropa intima were mixed with my own, and the whereabouts of 3 sets of ropa intima and a pair of khaki pants of my own. When all is said and done, I would recommend Rooneys to anyone outside the Hilton/Sheraton mindset. Enjoy!

Homely atmospherePosted Aug 26, 2013
Pros: The decor + the cosiness
Cons: They could supply the rooms with a kettle + coffee/tea to make.
Location: Quite central and the hotel had a list of tours that they booked for me.
Was first put into front room facing the street and was very noisy but got a nice quiet room @ the back and felt very private.

Arrived very early in the morning after overnight travel, the staff were very professional, my room wasnt ready so they very quickly changed the room so I cold go in and get some sleep .Very quaint boutique hotel with just 14 bedrooms, very well furnished .The staff all spoke fluent English and were very pleasant. Breakfast was very well presented and set in a nice dining room very well appointed.

The best budget hotel!Posted May 18, 2013
Cons: The WiFi
Location: Central location.
For the price, you get a clean 3-Star boutique hotel that employ helpful and friendly staff. The location is safe too. My only complaint is that the WiFi only works in the public area and not in your room.

Busy downtown sitePosted Apr 7, 2013 on Hotels.com
Similar to two star pensione in Europe. Did not expect a third floor hotel from the pics and a PBS review I had seen. Could walk to almost any site. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was spare and clean.The breakfast was a decided plus. The people I met terrific.
