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.
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.
