          The quality of the hotel is really bad and the bathroom is small and the plumbing is noisy. As a latin American, i can tell you that argentinians are a bit of an arrogant lot anyway.

          A generally dirty hotel and shabby bathtub, poor decoration, extremally narrow. The street noise was loud enough to cause sleep problems, the toilet was broken and the bathroom quite cramped.
