The house was built in 1890, served as an immigrant hotel, sat in decline for decades. In 1944, hosted tourists and immigrants from different countries. It is near Puerto Madero and in the heart of the city. The hotel has been named after its first owner, a French man. Was finally transformed into a modest but carefully restored 25-room B&B. It has high ceilings, carpeted rooms and loads of ornate trim work.
The original iron elevator is a work of art and still functions, but you'll have to climb the wooden staircase from street level yourself. Modest stained-glass ceilings adorn the hallway.

Oh, Waldo, how you continue to thwart our valiant search efforts. Despite your obvious penchant for flamboyantly candy cane striped red and white sweater/hat combos and your tendency to take along every possible piece of travel equipment on your obscenely crowded vacations, you still manage to boggle our minds with your mysterious whereabouts. In the original book, Waldo lugs along a walking stick, sleeping bag, mallet, drinking cup, binoculars, kettle, backpack, camera, snorkel, belt, another bag, and a shovel. Clearly, if he's going get lost in a crowd, he's got every imaginable amenity to walk, sleep, pound, drink, see, boil, carry, document photographically, dive, remain in pants, store more items, or dig his way out. That's right, it makes perfect sense. With "Waldo-mania" sweeping the country throughout the 1990s, there seemed to be no one without vested stake or interest in finding this bespectacled excursionist. There was something oddly if inexplicably satisfying about curling up with a big hardcover picture book and focusing on crowded, chaotic scenes until your eyes crossed. It wasn't just Waldo we were after, either; he brought with him a gang of of absurd cronies and/or nemeses. There was Wanda, Waldo's pal. Woof, his faithful canine companion. After that is where things got a bit weird. These were from the 90's:
Where's Wally? The Ultimate Fun Book (1990)
Where's Wally? The Magnificent Poster Book (1991)
Where's Wally? The Dazzling Deep-sea Divers Sticker Book (1994)
