Excellent location of this small hotel in a great section of Recoleta. Rooms and common areas are impeccably clean. The room and bathroom are spacious and cleaning staff does a great job. Staff is attentive and accommodating [I had noise issues coming from the building next door and they switched me to a different room right away]. The breakfast is... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in total during our visit to Buenos Aires. We stayed in two different rooms as we left to visit Iguazzu Falls in the middle of our stay and both rooms were spacious, comfortable and quiet, even though one rooms faced the main road and one faced the rear of the hotel. Breakfast is continental... More

When first planning our pre-cruise stay in Buenos Aires, the tour company that arranged our two day trip to Iguazu offered this hotel as a part of a package. I declined on two counts: memories of HoJos from the turnpikes of family trips as a child and the quoted price of about $150 per night. Instead I booked two refundable... More

Breakfast was very good buffet style - set us up for the day. Although the hotel did not have a restaurant the location meant there were many good... More

This is a very nice hotel in the Recoleta area of Buenos Aires. It is very near to the beautiful Recoleta cemetary and the Recoleta mall. The service was really good with nice breakfast. The only thing is that this hotel has breakfast and you can also order snacks. However, they don't have any restaurant in the hotel. But it... More

I have stayed at the Howard Johnson Boutique Recoleta between 22 and 31 December 2014. The room size is good and there are two queen beds very comfortable, great pillows, a round table with two chairs (one with a torn back), a desk with chair and a relatively small wardrobe for two people. The air conditioning works well, which is... More

I typically research everything to death when picking hotels and always wonder if there is something better out there. After having stayed for 3 nights in early November, I can say I would stay here again without looking elsewhere. The Good: - Good location.

Staying in Recoleta

Neighborhood Profile
Recoleta
Characterized by the French-style mansions which are the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this neighborhood is an experience like no other in Buenos Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll also find a rich cultural scene centered on the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library, and the Recoleta Cultural Center; as well as some great shopping spots, like the Buenos Aires Design Mall with an artists' fair set up in Plaza Francia every weekend.
