Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Spacious rooftop sundeck with plenty of lounge chairs and multiple Jacuzzis
  • Bathrooms are spacious and modern
  • Rooms come with microwaves, minibars, and bar sinks
  • All rooms overlook courtyard with peaceful outdoor seating
  • Fitness center for basic needs, plus sauna
  • La Carte serves lunch and dinner, and late room service
  • Free breakfast and free Wi-Fi

Cons

  • Room size is inconsistent -- some rooms are tiny and crammed with multiple beds for a hostel-like feel
  • The immediate surroundings can be a bit dicey
  • Rooms on main floor feel less private because of open courtyard

Bottom Line

The Tribeca Buenos Aires Apart has a lot of style and space for its slim capacity. The 35 rooms are arranged around a center courtyard that offers quaint outdoor seating and a peaceful reprieve from the city surroundings. The shared spaces of the hotel are sophisticated and modern (particularly the blue-lit lobby bar that doubles as restaurant after the free breakfast buffet), but the rooms don't quite measure up, with sparse decor and tight space -- though they do have surprisingly large bathrooms. Overall, the central (though slightly dicey) location in the heart of Buenos Aires, the fitness center for basic work-out needs, the spacious rooftop sundeck with Jacuzzis, and freebies such as Wi-Fi and breakfast all add up for a great value.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Tribeca is in a slightly dicey but centrally located area of downtown Buenos Aires

Tribeca Buenos Aires Apart 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 sights -- 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.

  • 31-minute drive to Ministro Pistarini International Airport
  • 10-minute walk to Congressional Plaza, the seat of the Argentine government
  • 15-minute walk to Calle Florida, a main shopping area
  • 9-minute walk to the Obelisk, one of the most recognizable sights in Buenos Aires
  • 11-minute walk to historic Colon Theater
  • 14-minute walk to the Metropolitan Cathedral
  • 17-minute walk to Casa Rosada, the Presidential Palace
  • 17-minute walk to Palermo Soho, a trendy area full of restaurants, bars, and designer boutiques
  • 8-minute drive to the Museum of Modern Art
  • 9-minute drive to lively Plaza Dorrego, complete with a wonderful antiques market on Sundays
  • 9-minute drive to popular San Telmo Market
  • 12-minute drive to Puerto Madero, full of bars and restaurants
  • 14-minute drive to the Botanical Garden
  • 14-minute drive to the Museum of Latin-American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA)
  • 15-minute drive to the zoo
  • 15-minute drive to the Boca Juniors stadium
