Perfectly located by the ocean, yet 5 minutes esay walk from city center. Nice decor, great lobby for coffee or bier opposite the ocean.GREAT OCEAN VIEW. I came for a business trip and found the hotel meeting and exceeding all my expectations. Elected to stay one more night during weekend. Will stay there again. The hotel is somewhat outdated. I do not like the concrete architecture from teh 70's. The gym equipment was second grade.
View of the River Plate Staff was unfriendly and seldom helpful; hotel is in desperate need of upkeep and maintenance. Food selection at restaurant is mediocre at best. No restaurant on weekends??? No air conditioner because they set to "cold climate conditions" on a set date regardless of what current weather conditions are outside. Hot and no air condition is hardluy expected from a hotel.
Reception staff, porters, housekeepers -- all were very customer-oriented, helpful, and friendly.The hotel location was perfect while visiting various museums and plazas. Breakfast pastries were plentiful, delicious, and fresh -- and great coffee! The food service staff in the breakfast area were attentive for requests, but the scrambled eggs container was empty when I arrived for breakfast each day around 10 am. The staff would, of course, fill the container but that requires time. Also, staff did not remove used plates until after a customer left rather than during. Lunch in dining room near the reception desk was delicious but, again, staff did not "attend" to the tables quickly. I ate dinner in the hotel dining room only one evening and the service was very slow. I believe the food service personnel could learn a great deal from the front desk/porter personnel. :-) The length of the twin bed in my room was fine for me but may be a bit short for a person of approximately 6 feet tall.
