"Good option for a reasonable price"
Very good location, specially if your are going to do business downtown. Close to the Obelisco, av 9 de Julio, Calle Florida. If uou feel like you can walk a bit more, go walking to Cada Rosada and Porto Madero. The hotel is good, the service is great, the bed is comfortable. Just be aware that the dowtown (Microcentro) region is not turistic at night or during the weekends. The mais street is ok, but the surroundings might be quite desert.
We stayed at Pestana for 9 days. Can't beat the location which is centrally located and easy to get to most areas, either walking or short taxi ride. The rooms were large and comfortable and clean. It did smell of smoke, which is my major peeve and reason for 4 stars instead of 5. But the smell of cigarette is omnipresent in the city as there are way too many people who smoke everywhere. Our room had street view of the 9 de Julio Ave and the obelisk. I guess light sleepers could have some trouble with the traffic noise, but it was a non issue for us. The staff was very nice although seemed a bit scarce at times. The pool was nice and warm and the gym is small but adequate. The breakfast was great as well. Yes, the hotel could use some updating but we honestly enjoyed our stay. I recommend it.
"Amazing Location Near the Obelisk and Teatro Colon right on the 9th July Avenue."
We stayed at Hotel Pestano for three nights in May, 2016. The location can not be beat! We walked over to the Teatro Colon for a tour (well worth the expensive price of admission!). We felt safe going out for dinner in the evening to a few suggested places by our tour guide (who was exceptional!). We also were able to walk several blocks right to the Pink House and surrounding interesting buildings. We had a great room with a really good bed and good linens. Sometimes, the front desk could have used extra people to process customers with their requests. The breakfast was adequate.
"100% overpriced and in need of rennovations"
I stayed at this hotel against my better judgement because a friend was coming to review and inspect the site for a large travel company. I thought it looked overpriced based on the reviews and similar properties and I (tripadvisor) was bang on. The exterior tells it all. Worn and faded flags that look like they were strung up decades ago. The staff were reasonably courteous, but I was put on a floor that was either smoking or every day people decided to smoke inspite of it being a nonsmoking floor. The paint in the room was peeling, the tiles chipped in the bathroom, a disgusting rag hung over the shower, an old outdated safe and a view of collapsing buildings and a small sad looking backyard. The wifi barely worked and was very slow (although at least free). I gave an average instead of poor rating because inspite of it all the bed was very comfortable, the AC worked well, and the pool was quite nice. The gym was incredibly small, old, limited free weights, no cleaning products, and in a basement/dungeon. I should also say that the manager of the hotel somehow completely forgot my friends were there to assess the hotel and just skipped the whole inspection - my review may be a bit unpleasant, but odds are they lost a whole lot of business on that mistake - just yet another indication of the underlying problems of the property... The location is great, stay somewhere else close-by for hundreds of dollars less.
"Good starting point"
His hotel is really well located in central Bu ends Airies, close to the Colon Theatre and with in walking distance of most t purist sites and some non tourist ones as well. Hotel itself is a little drab, rooms are relatively good size but with smallish bathrooms. We had a superior double, it could have done with a lick of paint and the drain was slightly smelly. They advertised an upgrade for USD 25 a night but we're not prepared to offer that to us as we were booked via a UK tour company and we were also refused One World points for the same reason. The staff h owever were very helpful and checked us in at 11.00 am against a 1400 hours of official check in and the breakfast was absolutely adequate.
