Beautiful hotel but could do with some minor improvements. Things like suitcase stands so you don't have to put your suitcase on the floor. Good breakfast, pool area, location, and location.

Ottimo albergo a un isolato da Calle Florida
Ottimo rapporto qualità/prezzo. A un isolato da Calle Florida e da tutti i negozi. Accesso gratuito a internet in camera e se vi dimenticato il cavo Ethernet, ve ne presteranno uno. Nel seminterrato hanno una palestra con spogliatoio e il personale vi fornirà un asciugamano.
La colazione, compresa nel prezzo della camera, è minima, ma decente. Anche se dovrete cercare un posto dove pranzare e cenare, non avrete alcun problema: a Buenos Aires ci sono moltissimi ottimi ristoranti. Lungo la strada dell'albergo troverete un bancomat, un emporio e dei piccoli negozietti nel caso vi dovesse servire qualcosa all'ultimo momento. Inoltre l'albergo è convenzionato con una compagnia locale di taxi così da mettere a disposizione un collegamento per l'aeroporto a un ottimo prezzo.
Great hotel, great staff
A very comfortable, well priced hotel, new and clean, with attentive staff and comfortable rooms, good service. Laundry just across the road, bang in the centre of Buenos Aires with all the main attractions reachable on foot. Of course, in a big city you have to accept the noise of traffic, small price to pay.
Modern and comfy
A group of us (6) just came back from Buenos Aires and we stayed at this hotel for 6 nights. We got an incredible deal from American Express. The basics: modern style, good breakfast with eggs, sausage, cold cuts, various pastries and fruits. High-speed Internet access in the lobby and in the rooms via cable-based connection. Car park below. Everything was clean, plenty of channels on TV, safe in room, bathroom was ample with nice shower/tub and bidet. Bed and pillows were comfy. Great restaurant in corner and hotel is close to many pedestrian/shopping streets.
The staff was very friendly - in fact, overly friendly. They have one or two people always waiting by the front door, ready to open the door or take your bags up to the room. When I called to order a network cable for my laptop, someone was knocking at my door in 1 minute, no charge! I have no idea why some reviews claimed this hotel had non-friendly staff. Perhaps they were nice to us because we spoke Spanish?
There is only one fault we could find with this hotel. We were in this city during their summer, and we often felt that the a/c in the room was having trouble "catching up." Dont get me wrong, we were cool enough that we didnt even need to complain about this. But, if you like your rooms ice cold or are bothered by the slight gurgling noise made by the a/c, then this could have been a problem. But once again, we didnt complain so perhaps other rooms in the hotel did not have this problem.
All in all, we would definitely stay there again.
Great hotel, service and clean room. Free interent, and a great breakfast. Close to all shopping areas in B.A.

No early breakfast
Stayed here in November 2006, but didn't see any evidence of the previous writer's experiences. The location is excellent, only a few metres away from the Florida Street shopping malls and San Martin Square.
We were upgraded to a 2-roomed suite, which was all very nice, but the jaccuzi didn't work!!. The design of the furnishings is modern with a clean-cut minimalist character. This put us off eating in the restaurant which tended to be a bit souless, but there is an excellent restuarant, called El Establo, almost opposite, on the corner of San Martin and Paraguay where they serve the best char-grill steaks I have ever tasted.
A serious drawback, for a hotel of this quality, is the fact that they refuse to provide breakfast or even a cup of coffee before 07.00am, so tough if you have to catch an early flight.
This hotel is great ... unless you are a woman. And, unless you are a man looking for some good prostitutes. Beware women, once you get to this hotel and walk down the block you will easliy begin to suspect that you are in a cabaret license/prostitute neighborhood. This hotel will make you dislike the city and make you realize that there is more to this beautiful city than a neighborhood filled with conieving people and men in search of a good prostitute.
Loved The Dazzler Tower!
Great choice! I loved this hotel! Great location in the heart of the city and in walking distance to everything...or at least a short inexpensive cab ride away. The hotel has a european/scandanavian feel, meaning minimalist, furniture very low to the grown, but yet very modern with an aire of chic. Again, not cluterred with a lot of decoration, in fact, there are no pictures/wall hangings in your room. The hotelis very modern and a nice medium size,therefore, you get great individual service. Free internet is an absolute plus; they have two PC's in the lobby. The included in your rate breakfast is good, but it is the same breakfast; a bit of variety would have been nice after staying a week. The staff was absolutely amazing! Specifically, Diego, Guadalupe, Paricio, Osvaldo, Juan, and Edwardo. In addition, the restaurant/bar staff was also wonderful! The staff was great in helping me plan my daily activities and dinner; they really made me feel warm and welcoming. I was in BA celebrating my birthday and to my surprise the hotel sent a bottle of champagne and a a dessert to my room as a celebratory birthday gesture; I thought that was very nice, kind and considerate!
You can't go wrong w/this hotel, I highly recommend it and would stay there again in a heartbeat!
A delight to come back to ....
This was our second visit to BA and we found Dazzler Tower by far the best hotel we have stayed in so far (others being Principado, NH Crillion, NH Florida). Its in an excellent location - an easy walk to the shopping of Galerias Pacifico and many good restaurants and bars in the surrounding streets.
Style wise, the hotel refeshingly stays away from the endless patterned and floral furnishings found in so many hotels and instead leans towards minimalsim. Rooms are spotlessly clean, and a good size.
I found the reception staff to be extremely friendly and helpful.
My only criticism would be the hotel's reservations/booking system. We had decided to leave NH Florida and move to Dazzler Tower but when we turned up at the hotel to make the booking we found the rooms more expensive than advertised on their website. This seems to be the case for many hotels in BA but for non-Spanish speakers the website is a rather longwinded process. In the end we phoned the hotel who booked the room for us on-line at the website price which seemed rather rediculous. Another problem arose when, prior to leaving the hotel for a trip to Mendoza, we wanted to book one extra night for our return from Mendoza. Reception said their computer showed the hotel to be full for the night we wanted. So we went straight to the website and were able to book the room. On our return from Medoza, the hotel reception computer did not show our booking, although they were subsequently able to confirm it via their corporate central booking system and we got our room. Reception were very apologetic and encouraged us to complain about the booking system as they are aware of the problems but at the mercy of their corporate headquarters.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the hotel, found it good value and always a delight to come back to after a day exploring the delights of BA.
Less impressive than web site
The web site promises much more of a cool design hotel than it is in reality. Don't get me wrong, the hotel is nice, but not that nice. The feeling upon arrival was that it is more average. The reception staff is not that super friendly, the little gym not open in the morning, but the rooms are good and fresh. Also good with the free internet access at a couple of terminals in the entrance. Be a bit cautious of pick-pocketers though. While doing a group-checkin, one of our group members had his rucksack stolen. Admittedly, one should keep an eye on one's belongings, but still...
Great location, not as pretentious as it looks!
Just returned from a 4 night stay at dazzler tower. Hotel in a great location for wandering round the city.
Not far from Subway stations.
The hotel literature and photos I looked at before my stay had me worried about it being a bit pretentious.
The room was large and immacutely clean, breakfasts were fine, 2 free internet terminals at reception.
The only thing that let down my stay were the reception and lobby staff - not very friendly.
Was also very strange having breakfast with a security guard watching over the diners.
No idea what that was all about.
Would definitely recommend dazzler tower if you are visiting BA.
Excellent Steak House Restaurant across the road as well!

... at his lady almost as a check.
Once the dancing was done we were dropped back at the hostel. Rather than another hostel party (another quiet looking one full of dudes) we headed to a nearby bar and shared a bottle of red (rojo!) and chilled on some street seating. The night feel apart slightly when as it transpired the bar only seemed to have one bottle of wine that we already drank and alternative places were thin on the ground. I called it a night around 2am. ...
... It was a good job someone won because after an hour, pur wrists were absolutely killing from holding and swinging a polo mallet and we could barely pick up our last drinks of the day. It was such a fantastic day that we could only do it justice with a second visit to the incredible Don Julio. Steak, steak, steak, steak steak...and pasta for Lisa! Friday the heavens finally opened (we don't have the luck required for a full trip with good weather), and we were woken by ...
... So like any half sane young adult, I have removed myself from all that is known and familiar, and flown across the world in search of a passion. A new direction in life (or a reinvigorated interest in the old one) still eludes me, but seems within grasp. It's hard to put to words what I have learned in the last two months, but the extent reaches far beyond some Argentine ...
... it was much too far to walk (we had made it about halfway, though). Because we were walking initially, we did get to pass the Palacio de las Aguas Corrientes. We did not go inside, however, because the terra cotte edifice was much more engaging that the museum inside dedicated to 20th century plumbing relics.
We arrived in San Telmo around 12:30PM, poked around a few of the art stores, and walked up and down the streets (they were very colorful ...

We then visited the Evita museum run by Eva Peron's family. Her body had been moved several times after her death. It was first housed in the GCI Union Hall that she founded and then with a coup her body was damaged by enemies until Peron got her moved to Milan Italy. She was there for a while and then Peron moved her to Spain where he ...
