Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Free daily breakfast
  • Big beds with comfy down comforters and blankets
  • Renovated rooms have hardwood floors and modern furnishings
  • Flat-screen TVs in some rooms
  • Good location close to cultural landmarks
  • Light fare and cocktails at 24-hour Coffee Shop El Mirador
  • National and international cuisine at Restaurante de la Cascada

Cons

  • Fee for Internet access
  • Some rooms look worn and in need of updates
  • Fitness center is small, with limited equipment
  • No pool or spa
  • Some rooms have unappealing views of the hotel's slightly run-down facade

Bottom Line

This 139-room hotel is located on the bustling Avenida 9 de Julio in Retiro, a business-friendly area near shops and cultural attractions. It's an older hotel with some signs of wear and tear, though many of the rooms were renovated in 2011. Updated rooms feature hardwood floors, big beds, and modern touches such as flat-screen TVs, sleek lamps, and minimalist furnishings. Other rooms, however, still have older, drab decor and tube TVs. The hotel's draw is its central location just north of Microcentro, which may appeal to business travelers and tourists who want to explore the city. Amenities are few -- there's not much more than a small, ill-equipped fitness center, a coffee shop, and a restaurant.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Located close to downtown Buenos Aires and walking distance from theaters and a national monument

Regente Palace Hotel is just to the north of downtown Buenos Aires, and is within walking distance of popular sights and historic landmarks. It sits across from another hotel and adjacent to a supermarket on a busy, narrow road.

Retiro is the transportation hub of Buenos Aires. Often, "transportation hub" is synonymous with gritty, depressing, and traffic-filled, but this is not the case with Retiro (except the traffic-filled part). The neighborhood is home to upscale shops, luxury hotels, and the Plaza San Martin park, surrounded by beautiful historic mansions (many of which now serve as embassies).

  • 36-minute drive from Ministro Pistarini International Airport
  • 7-minute walk to Teatro Nacional Cervantes
  • 7-minute walk to Monumento del Libertador José de San Martin
  • 9-minute walk to Teatro Colon
  • 12-minute walk to Plaza de la República
  • 12-minute drive to Puerto Madero, an upscale waterfront neighborhood feature restaurants and nightclubs
  • 14-minute drive to San Telmo, the city's older residential area
  • 15-minute drive to Palermo, a trendy sightseeing neighborhood
