Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Prime location in Palermo, close to parks and restaurants
  • A funky outdoor pool and seasonal solarium
  • Free Wi-Fi and free breakfast buffet
  • Kitchenettes with stovetops and mini-fridges in all rooms
  • Some rooms have furnished balconies with city views
  • Modern fitness center with cardio machines and free weights
  • Argentinean and Mediterranean cuisine at Puerto de Palos

Cons

  • An older hotel showing wear and tear
  • Guest rooms have outdated furnishings and tube TVs
  • Spa is plain and tiny
  • Some complaints of temperamental plumbing in bathrooms

Bottom Line

The 160-room Hotel Cristoforo Colombo is hard to miss -- the facade is adorned with an enormous silver sign and fading flags that mark the entrance to this older high-rise property. Amenities include a funky circular pool, small play area, and tiny spa. The fitness center looks bright and modern, but much of the rest of the property is starting to show its age. Guest rooms look especially tired, with outdated furnishings and tube TVs. Free Wi-Fi and daily breakfast are nice perks, but the big draw is the hotel's great location close to parks and restaurants in Palermo.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In a central area of Palermo -- near parks, restaurants, and La Rural Convention Center

Hotel Cristoforo Colombo is located near Santa Fe Avenue, walking distance to La Rural Convention Center and Palermo Woods -- a peaceful city park with landscaped paths and a lake. The trendier Palermo Soho area is great for shopping and nightlife and can be reached by foot in 15 minutes. Palermo Viejo -- also within walking distance -- has a thriving restaurant scene, though there are good dining options in the immediate vicinity of the hotel as well.

Palermo is a massive neighborhood in the northeastern part of Buenos Aires, only 15 minutes away from the downtown area or Microcentro. To get to tourist sites in and around the center of Buenos Aires, guests can take the subway or bus (both are a few blocks away). The hotel staff will gladly arrange for taxis or transfers.

  • 44-minute drive to Buenos Aires Ministro Pistarini Airport
  • 5-minute drive or 13-minute walk to restaurants and shops in the trendy Palermo Soho section
  • 8-minute drive to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA)
  • 9-minute drive to Cementerio de la Recoleta historic cemetery
  • 16-minute drive to Teatro Colon opera house
  • 20-minute drive to La Casa Rosada (The Pink House) presidential palace
