Placed in the heart of historical San Telmo, the Hotel Bolivar was builded in early 1890. With tall roofs and wide ambiences, marble stairs, molding details and antique furniture.

The hostel occupies three floors acceded by stairs. On the firs floor there is a spacious commoun kitchen, a lounge /bar and en suite rooms that surround the courtyards. In the second and third plant you can find private and also shared rooms, different with balcony to the street or with window to the interior for a major calmness. All of them share bathrooms in excellent conditions that stay clean constantly. Each room is functional and in great conditions, in adition the dorms have lockers to storage your belongings.

In Hotel Bolivar we also have a floor available for longer stays.

The hotel has a roof terrace with a grill, 2 courtyards and comon living rooms with Wi-Fi acces where guests can socialize and feel comfortable. We also have a compute with internet at your disposal.

The lounge bar located in the first floor is oponed to public and has a TV screen where you can watch national and international sports. This hall is also used to present art exhibitions, provide group classes and craft fair, where all the guests are welcome to take part.

To give you a much more complete experience of Buenos Aires, we offer spanish classes every monday!

If you want to make your Buenos Aires tours simpler, you can rent bicycles from the hotel or enjoy the free city tours that we offer. Also we can give you a SUBE card, wich can be used to pay the passage in public transportation like buses, subways and trains.

The staff of the hotel will be of great help, they can book you tickets for tango shows, soccer games, among other events.

What we emphasize is that you know Buenos Aires like us, in the way in wich true “porteños” live it, enjoying the city and it’s multiple activities without expensive tours.

With Hotel Bolivar, live Buenos Aires as a real porteño!

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I have mixed thoughts about this place. As others have said it feels like an old grand dame that has seen better days. Crumbling with tiny ensuites and many rooms with no windows only light entering through top of door from courtyard. When I first saw the dark gloomy room I wanted to turn around and leave again but this place has a way of growing on you and ended staying longer than intended. The best thing about thing about it(other than the price) is its location. In the heart of San Telmo lots of restaurants, bars, cafes nearby. A few blocks to subway and the rest of the city is yours!

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

We had an amazing stay. The hotel is in an excellent location, though some streets are kind of deserted and weird at night. It has a lot of character. The staff is really friendly and helpful. One or maybe two staff members speak English, so communicating and getting info on how to get around with them is easy. The rooms are spacious and fairly clean, but hot (there are noisy ceiling fans). Overall, we really enjoyed the hotel, the city, and the friendly porteños.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Good place to sleep, if you plan to stay out and about must of the day, which is what I did.
Balcony rooms are good, if you don't mind traffic noise, single rooms with private bathroom are ok if you don't mind confined spaces.
For single travelers the place could use a tv. and cable.
Overall the place could use upgrades on every aspect, perhaps air conditioning for the summer and heaters for the winter.
Book it for one or two nights and if you like it, stay.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Its very old and worn, but I was happy with it and thought it was good value. I had a single room with ensuite and felt comfortable there. The guys on the front desk were pleasant and helpful. It was reasonably clean and I like the location in San Telmo.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

This Hotel is more of a Hostel for adults. It has private rooms with bath or without and is very secure. The staff were very helpful and the hotel is located very close to a lot of restaurants, street life, and night life. It is very basic, but the price is right.

Charming if basic hotel. Great location (San Telmo was our favourite part of Buenos Aires). Neat old building with heaps of character, friendly staff. Facilities pretty basic - esp kitchen. Nice clean bathrooms. Excellent value for travellers on a budget who can do without luxuries. Would definitely stay there again.
