Review Summary


Pros

Cons

  • No-frills hotel with sparse amenities, uninspired design, and a lackluster spa
  • Kitchenettes lack microwaves, coffeemakers and kettles
  • Bathrooms are cramped with narrow showers
  • Surrounding area is run-down, traffic-clogged and sketchy, especially at night
  • Fee for Wi-Fi use and no hotel parking

Bottom Line

Entering the unremarkable lobby of the 70-room Apart Hotel is enough to tell you that it's a no-frills property. Located in a rundown neighborhood, this mid-range hotel features rooms that are spacious and offer flat-screen TVs, but lack basic amenities, such as coffeemakers or microwaves in the kitchenettes. The cramped bathrooms and terrible views are big drawbacks. Families traveling on a budget may enjoy the layout of Quadruple rooms, which have plenty of space and twin beds for children, but the location in Congreso might be better suited to business travelers.

Location

Located in Congreso, near Argentina's federal government buildings

Map of Apart Hotel & Spa Congreso

The Apart Hotel is located in the historic Congreso district, where the legislative seat of the Argentine government is stationed. There's plenty to see within walking distance, the metro is within a few minutes' walk, and stores and eateries are located on nearby Corrientes Avenue.

Congreso is somewhat run-down and sketchy (especially at night), and isn't as popular with non-business visitors as the trendy Palmero 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.
