Hotel Hispano is a charming hotel on the Avenida de Mayo right in the heart of Buenos Aires. It's close to everything and that is a big plus. Right next door is the oldest cafe, cafe Tortoni(est. 1858), the oldest metro is right in front of the hotel(Linea A), 500 metres to the right is Parliament, 500m to the left...

Hotel had a good location but beware! The first floor has no air conditioning. It was hot and after trying to sleep in the steamy room I complained and they switched us to the second floor. The room had a/c but it was a dump. Moldy bathroom walls, peeling paint. Not a nice room. The first was 105 and the...

This a grand old hotel on Avenida de Mayo only blocks from the Palace. The rooms are clean and recently renovated. Most of the rooms are located around a central atrium but a few of the premium rooms open out on the Avenida with little balconies. The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms were reasonably priced for the location....

I feel it important to share an incident I recently experienced while staying at one of Lonely Planet's recommended accomodations. I am a college instructor, on a sabbatical and doing research while volunteering in several South American countries. I chose the Gran Hotel Hispano as my base while visiting Buenos Aires, Argentina in May 2007. The accomodation was very clean...

This hotel represents great value. Location is on on noisy Avenida Mayo. Inside rooms are windowless, with French doors leading to lovely,open common lounging areas. We had rooms 101 and 301, which were larger with a shuttered window leading to a small balcony. Good sized bathrooms. These room experience a lot of noise but were charming. Staff at office speak...

We were very lucky to get a room here as it's very popular. But as it turned out we got a very nice little room on the 3rd floor. Many of the rooms seemed to be very dark and don't have windows (no street noise) but if you get one in the centre of the strip either side of the...

The Gran Hotel Hispano has small rooms, "cozy" at best. The same goes for the bathrooms, which fit one and whose showers are not separated from the rest of the bathroom--with the result that the floor will be wet for at least an hour each time you shower. On the up side, the water is hot and plentiful, and the...

We stayed in the hotel on our last night in Argentina. We checked in very late in the night (11:30PM) so we were never told what time check out was. The person who checked us in arranged for a cab to take us to the airport the following day at 4PM so he knew when we were to depart but...

This was a nice, clean 2 star hotel in a great central location in Buenos Aires. We stayed at another 2 star and were comparitively very impressed by the Hispano. The courtyard, great staff, and patio were nice additions to the smallish rooms and great location. We would definitely stay there again.

Staying in Montserrat

Neighbourhood Profile
Montserrat
As part of the historic quarter of Buenos Aires, Montserrat is defined by the historical events that took place there and the landmarks that have stood the test of time. The Plaza de Mayo is at the center of this connection to history: countless public demonstrations have passed through this square, going back to the May Revolution of 1810. Walking the streets of Montserrat allows us to imagine what Buenos Aires may have looked like in the past: the Cabildo takes us back to the late 16th century, while the Palacio Barolo and the traditional cafés carry us to the early 20th. Nowadays, the neighbourhood is inundated every day by office workers, buses, and taxis; still, the cobblestones, narrow sidewalks, and subway stations from the 1910s remind us that we are surrounded by history everywhere we look.
