It has a long revolutionary history. If I am not mistaken, hotel employees expropriated it from rightful owners and started to manage it themselves.And for a while it was a model for socialist/leftist parties on how things should be done, they frequently rent conference hall for their meetings.Can not comment on rooms etc. The area used to be OK. When walking it's better to take Corrientes towards Obelisco, or Callao towards Recoleta.

I was there for a cultural event a couple of years ago. It seemed nice then. The hotel is one the many "empresas recuperadas" [factories or businesses that filed for bankrupcy and were kept going through the effort of their employees; today it's a coop, and coops have always been very common throughout Argentina]
