Value for money with challenges

Posted 31-Mar-2013
Pros: Price - value for money
Cons: Smell of greasy smoke from the kitchen chimneys
Location: Good location
The Milan Hotel is in a good location for central Buenos Aires - you can walk to most places, even though BA is a huge city and distances are far; the hotel is near a Metro stop - the metro is grotty but cheap. The room in this hotel was satisfactory; it had a patio, but the soot from the 4 kitchen chimney outlets covered the patio furniture, which had to be cleaned off before using, but worse still, the greasy smell from the chimneys came into the room at all times and was nauseating. The breakfasts were satisfactory but the same every day. The staff was friendly and helpful. Front rooms would be noisy. The elevator is very antiquated and small; it constantly has problems with the door closing, which sets off an alarm that can be heard in the rooms at all hours. Overall the hotel scores on location and excellent value for money, in spite of the particular disadvantages mentioned above.

Pros: Most of the staff spoke English and tried to help when they can
Cons: the failure to not enforce the non smoking policy
Location: the hotel is in a central location and within walking distance to the train station
the hotel had a non smoking policy, but most guest chose to ignore it and the hotel staff didn't enforce the non smoking policy

Great experience, overall. Pros: comfortable room; clean; great location; secure; adequate breakfast, with spacious dining area; outlet accommodating both plug types C and B. Cons: Tiny shower; unusual elevator; lots of noise; possible lack of communication. For the cons, the noise was largely from the elevator (which has a warning alarm when it's not closed properly, due to its weird door system) and what seemed like constant housekeeping (a mild complaint, as I did like the hotel's cleanliness). The one time I needed to talk to a concierge, he didn't speak English, so that may be an issue. The shower is the biggest detriment. It is incredibly small and, thus, hard to maneuver in. The large, billowy shower curtain eats up some of that space as well. Needless to say, showers were a bit uncomfortable. It is certainly not a shower/bath combo as advertised on this site. In that regard, despite the picture, there also is not a kitchen in the room. The hotel has many positives. It is near many attractions (like Obelisco) and bus stops for the tourist. It is also near multiple local restaurants--a good one right next, for example, or the ice cream place across the street. The hotel is clean and well kept. The front door is securely controlled by the concierge, and the outside door within the room also locks. The room itself was very well maintained, and the housekeeper took great care with anything left strewn about. Despite the elevator and the shower, it was a great stay!

good for the price

The hotel was what you would expect for the price. The staff was extremely helpful. The hotel is located near the theater district and countless pizza and pasta restaurants
