The InterContinental B.A. is an elegant, old-style hotel with a quiet location 2-blocks from the busy Avenida de Mayo. While the lobby, lounge, and restaurant are in fine shape, the rooms are in need of a freshening. I have stayed at this hotel 4-different times in the last 2-months. The floors and furniture are old, dull, and scratched. The area rugs are dingy and worn, and every one of the king beds I slept on was crowned in the middle, pushing you towards the edge overnight. The in-room coffee makers were old and disgusting. All these little things add up to a hotel offering a declining product. On the other hand, the staff is friendly and helpful, the hotel has an "okay" location relative to the tourist attractions and restaurants. The rooms and baths are large, and dark for sleeping. Bathrooms include a shower, full bathtub, bidet & toilet, with large towels and bathrobes. The second floor gym and spa are excellent with trainers available to help with your workout. (Cybex equipment and free-weights) Also a medium-sized indoor pool. I have not eaten in the hotel restaurant, but my colleagues tell me it's very good.
