Too old hotel..

Posted Nov 19, 2014
Not very friendly staff, I had to wait for 2 hrs to check in because expedia miscommunicated with them. We only for 1 replaced bath towel although we were registered as two people in the room... Bad, crowded location. We are never going there again.

Characterful hotel in less nice part of town

Posted Nov 18, 2014
Hotel ambience upstairs is lovely but would be a lot better if they could offer in room tea/coffee and did not charge so much for wifi (USD7 per day) and small water bottles . Other local hotels provide these (plus pool or gym which is hard for the savoy due to it's age.). Location not ideal but you can walk everywhere and the metro is easy to use. I had contacted hotel to request an early check in but got no reply- a number of us arrived on early flights from Europe and had to wait several hours for our rooms whereas other local hotels did not have the same problem.

Nice old hotel near restaurants

Posted Nov 18, 2014
Hotel is near restaurant area but is fair way from waterfront so if cruising from or to a closer hotel to pier would probably prefer

Great hotel, a little dingy

Posted Nov 11, 2014
Beautiful building, stunning ceilings and art all around, carpets are shabby and worn. We got a corner suite and the room was huge, if a little dark. Overall, a good experience

Classic hotel

Posted Nov 6, 2014
Pros: Efficient and helpful staff. Drive through entrance meant easy access to taxis. Good value for money.
Cons: No English language TV news service, which is unusual for a quality hotel.
Two nights spent here as independent travellers visiting family. It is a large historic building, with an impressive and spacious classic interior, yet also comfortable. We noticed several groups of tourists staying there. Breakfast is extra, but of a good and varied quality. We had one dinner there and it was the best steak we had in Argentina.

The best hotel during my South America trip

Posted Oct 18, 2014
Pros: Architecture and internal decorations, spacious rooms
Location: Location is great, it is within walk-in distance to the Mayor Plaza, Casa Rosada, Metropolitan Church, congress building, Evita museum, and etc.
Savoy hotel is the best during my trip in South America (Peru, Argentina and Brazil). It is an old building with unimaginable detail decorations. We felt like in an architectural structure. All rooms are with high ceilings, our room is also very spacious and clean. Staffs are very helpful, helped us with our trip and taxi.

Great hotel close to shops, restaurants, everythin

Posted Oct 15, 2014
Pros: Close to everything, shops, restaurants, places of interest, etc.
Cons: Lighting in the vanity and bathroom area could be improved. We found it quite dark.
We loved this hotel! Close to everything you can possibly think of! We were given a wrong room when we checked in - I was very disappointed as we were going to be there for 10 days! I called Aldana, the receptionist, explained to her and in less than 15 minutes, she sorted it out for us and we were given a bigger room. She is most pleasant, polite to deal with. We will go back to this hotel anytime! Everyone was very courteous and helpful.

Out of the "hip" areas, but well worth it.

Posted Sep 3, 2014
Pros: See above
Cons: Small bottles of mineral water should be provided gratis in the room in place of the large US$1 bottle in the bathroom.
Location: See above
My friend and I stayed at the Savoy Hotel for 6 days at the end of August. After a 3-weeks' trip to Brazil and Uruguay, it was a welcome sojurn at the end of our trip. The hotel is located in what appears to be a previously wealthy section of Buenos Aires, which continues to be a center of banking. Times have moved on, and the Savoy remains in a slightly shoddy but interesting, residential neighborhood. There are many very reasonably priced restaurants and cafes located within a 4-block radius, but avoid the McDonald's (except for coffee)...they cook the scrambled eggs complete with fragments of eggshells! We took the room without breakfast included, as the Hotel's buffet was large and expensive. Most places are packed at certain BA traditional hours, so try to get there before the local dining/drinking schedule kicks in. A favorite restaurant was Cervantes, about one block from the Hotel on a side street; caution: order only one plate for two people.There is a subway station close to the Hotel, which will enable you to reach many areas of BA. In a nutshell... the Savoy is unbelievably elegant with original art and design throughout beautifully maintained, a well-trained helpful staff, and conveniently located. It is easily the equivalent of international luxury hotels where I have stayed, but at 1/3 the price. What a find!
