Mandatory fees

You’ll be asked to pay the following charges at check in or check out:

  • All citizens of Argentina will be charged the national value-added tax (21%) upon check-out. Foreigners on a tourist visa are exempt from this tax. To qualify for a tax exemption, tourists must present a valid passport and pay for the services rendered with a non-Argentine credit card or via bank transfer from another country. This tax exemption does not apply for stays over 90 days. In the case of cancelled bookings, the cancellation penalties paid by the traveller will also be subject to the national VAT (21%).

We have included all charges provided to us by this hotel. However, charges can vary, for example, based on length of stay or the room you book.
