Terrible experiencia cuando llegamos al Cristoforo Colombo Hotel Palermo el 20-02-2023. Piso 14. Sin ascensor, sin maletero, sin soluciones. “Lo unico que podemos ofrecerle es cancelar la reserva sin costos”. Zero profesionalidad, total indiferencia. Nosotros tuvimos que hacer una nueva reserva en otro lugar. Nosotros tuvimos que pagar la diferencia de precio. Nosotros tuvimos que llamar un taxi para llegar al otro hotel, y porsupuesto lo tuvimos que pagar nosotros. Nunca mas. Hagan lo mismo. ————————— Terrible experience when we arrived at Hotel Cristoforo Colombo, Palermo, Buenos Aires on 20-02-2023. 14th floor. No elevator, no porter, no solutions. “The only thing we can do is letting you cancel your reservation with no additional cost”. Worst attitude ever, they just didn’t care. We had to make another reservation at a different hotel. We had to pay the difference. We had to call a cab to get to the other hotel, and we obviously had to pay it ourselves. Never again. Please do the same.

I read some of the recent reviews for this ghastly place and definitively smell a rat. They must be an insider job. The ‘beautiful views of Buenos Aries’,?? the ‘well equipped gym’?? These HAVE TO BE phoney reviews. Our stay last night was disappointing on every level other than the friendly and helpful reception staff. (and, surprisingly, nice towels.) Restaurant = shut. Bar = shut. Pool area = disgusting worn out AstroTurf and shoddy children’s play area. Pool itself like something from 1960’s reached via a utilitarian steel workmen’s stairwell. All carpets = worn and scuffed. Rooms = dark and dreary and oh so very tired with ancient varnished parquet floors. Kitchen areas = old and depressing. Curtains = either missing or torn. Plumbing = noisy and faulty. How this establishment dares to class itself as a 4 star hotel beats me. Two star max. On a good day. With a following wind. If that. Take a tip from me. Do NOT put any faith in the photoshopped images you see on the blurb. Don’t press the ‘book now’ button. Pay a few pesos extra and stay at the Tango de Mayo.

I stayed in a lot of hotels and this was one of the worst. Two out of the 4 lifts weren’t working. The wi-fi didn’t work. The room was clean but OLD. Furniture and paintwork mis-matched and chipped. Damp on the walls. The hairdryer was connected to the light switch. No where to put anything in the bathroom. No iron.

Honestly this has been one of THE best hotels I have ever stayed at in my life... From check-in to check-out, the staff has been nothing but wonderful and genuinely caring. For the incredibly affordable price of the accommodations I would have expected it to be an average experience, but every single detail of our stay was an absolute bliss. The rooms were so clean, you can really tell the cleaning staff does an impecable job. My kudos to them! Every receptionist that I talked to was polite and willing to help me with whatever I needed. The gym is very well-equipped. I was very entertained while working out in the morning as I stared out the windows at the breathtaking sight of Buenos Aires’ cityscape- a few hours before enjoying the hotel’s own buffet breakfast-which was delicious and varied! They had something for every taste. With the obvious perk of being close to the US embassy and the Japanese Garden and within just a few blocks of some great tourist spots- staying at this hotel is a must if you want to be treated like an esteemed guest (or if you want your pets to be treated like little kings as well) Thank you Cristoforo Colombo, my friends, my family and I will always stay here, and I will never stop recommending your hotel.

Localised in Palermo district, horrible, old, untreated hotel, maybe the worst I’ve ever been. Rooms have old, really used furniture, bathroom is dirty with a lot of fungus. Doors to the balcony is unable to lock. The worst thing there is swimmingpool. It is disgusting!!! Dirty, a lot of hair and black things swimming in the pool. It was maybe cleaned many many weeks ago. Breakfast are average. Dont go there, try to find any other hotel!!!!

We stayed at this hotel for several nights in occasion of an exhibition. The location was perfect to go to the exhibition (2 minutes, super!) but the hotel is really in need of a good refurbishment... old rooms, old stuff. Restaurant so so so... Terrible wifi from the room but also not good in the lobby

This place is nothing fancy, but absolutely gets the job done. We were impressed with the space, as there was a main room and a living room. There was also a kitchen, so if we stayed longer that could have come in handy. The AC worked pretty well, so that was nice. The curtains were dark to also help with sleeping. Overall, for the price I would highly recommend this place if you won't be in the hotel much and need a central spot. Palermo is a wonderful area!
