Icaro Suites Rating: 3.5 Pearls
Congreso, Buenos Aires, Argentina

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Centrally located near downtown Buenos Aires
  • Close to 3 subway stations and various landmarks
  • Sophisticated and spacious suites
  • Units come with homey features such as kitchenettes, living rooms, and balconies
  • Free breakfast buffet, Wi-Fi, and parking
  • Small, but vibrant art gallery on-site

Cons

  • No restaurant on-site
  • No pool or spa
  • Congreso can be a bit dicey at night

Bottom Line

Icaro Suites provides guests with sleek, clean, and upscale rooms in a business-oriented area near the heart of Buenos Aires (though the public areas of the hotel feel less upscale). The 62 suites are roomy, comfortable, and sophisticated -- the dark wooden furniture and the simple deep-red and brown patterns of the bedding complement the subdued, beige walls and flooring. The rooms also come with some great features: large windows for lots of natural light, private balconies, free Wi-Fi, kitchenettes, and an ample living room areas. There's a free breakfast buffet of hot and cold foods in a hall that overlooks the hotel’s little art gallery, but there’s no other dining option on-site. There's a basic-needs (tiny) fitness center, and a business center with a few computers. Guests who have been traveling a while will likely appreciate the on-site laundry facilities.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Located in downtown Buenos Aires, near main attractions, public transportation, shops, and restaurants

Icaro Suites is in downtown Buenos Aires, near the center of Argentina's government. Not the most interesting, charming, or safe area, Congreso (as it is called) does have proximity to many of Buenos Aires' most popular tourist sites -- Microcento is just to the north.

Congreso is somewhat run-down and sketchy (especially at night), and isn't as popular with non-business visitors as the trendy Palermo or Retiro areas. An increased police presence in the area is starting to turn the area around, and more businesses and hotels are opening as a result, but there's still a long way to go.

  • 33-minute drive to Buenos Aires Ministro Pistarini International Airport (EZE)
  • 8-minute walk to Congresso Nacional
  • 13-minute walk to El Obelisco
  • 14-minute walk to Teatro Colon
  • 6-minute drive to Recoleta
  • 7-minute drive to Buenos Aires Stock Exchange
  • 7-minute drive to Plaza de Mayo
  • 8-minute drive to Calle Florida
  • 8-minute drive to Casa Rosada
  • 9-minute drive to Catedral Metropolitana
  • 10-minute drive to Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes
  • 11-minute drive to San Telmo
  • 14-minute drive to Palermo
  • 14-minute drive to Puerto Madero
