Keep coming back to this old but charming hotel If you want to splurge your money, go to the Alvear, but if you want to save money for your steaks and wine, then , go to the Castelar.

Well into vacation, great location. Immediate access to metro (all lines) at door. Bus Service #8 from Aeroport across street. Walking distance to Florida Street & great shopping. Numerous excellent restaurants.

Old hotel. Horrible breakfast.

Good staff in a well located hotel with too much carbohidrates for breakfast and antique features (keys, no safety box in the room, old carpets)

Dirty smelly carpet, bathroom with mold, stained linens and holes in the walls. This place used to be grand in 50s but looks like never repaired since. The breakfast was a-ok

Old hotel Nice staff

Old hotel but compensates by an excellent staff (at least most of them) and close to everything by walking distance or "subway" next door. Excellent breakfast.

Excellent SPA Great massage after long flight

Excellent I have stayed there many times. The subway is right in front. The breakfast is excellent except the eggs always seem to be runny. It's an old hotel but they keep it clean and well-kept. It's a great location Overall rating is excellent
