Really well located in the heart of Recoleta! Spacious rooms, confortable beds and a good quality for valued. Second time we stay there and strongly recommend! Very good restaurants near by: Marcelo, Melo, the Vuelta Ice cream. Callao leads to everywhere. Wi-fi was a bit average but after asking the reception to restart router, became better each time.

Spacious rooms, well located and good value for money . The place to dine was small and could have been better. Ironically, the rooms were rather good, with two double beds and neat toilets. Wifi in the lobby was erratic and not very user friendly.

Well, went for just a weekend. Bit expensive although is on the level expected. Great rooms, good commmon facilities and confortable. Not that much disapointed nor dazzled by it. Good option if you don't want to scout for something else.

They don't want to refund me or book for another date next month. The hotel says that they can't do anything because it was made through expedia and Expedia says that the hotel... More

This is a small boutique hotel in the nice old part of the city, just three blocks from the cemetery. We had six couples in our group and everyone was impressed. The rooms were always clean and comfortable and the staff was very helpful. Anabella, Blas and Esteban worked the front desk and were always willing to assist and make... More

The property is relatively small. Perhaps 20 or so rooms. As a result, it lacks some features such as a swimming pool, and the "spa" is a hot tub in a very warm interior space so not particularly attractive. However, the rooms are very spacious and the beds are excellent. Room amenities are average for a hotel in this category.... More

Howard Johnson Hotel Boutique Recoleta ... the name was ironic yet described the property perfectly. We six stayed here three days before our Antarctica cruise and one day after. Kudos to Anabella, Max, Esteban and Adriano. They answered every question, called our taxis, changed our money and in general kept us happy. The rooms were clean, very large and very... More

Over the last month we have stayed at this hotel for 13 nights during our visit to Argentina. Everything about the hotel was excellent. The location, staff, cleanliness, breakfast and rooms. All the staff welcomed us back each time, they always happy to store our luggage and golf clubs. The location is excellent, walking distance from many areas, restaurants and... More

Booked on booking.com and what a treat and a find. We had spent three weeks backpacking and with a trip to B A, we were looking for something a bit better. This hotel meet every expectation from being sensationally located, staff service, comfort and cleanliness. A big thumbs up.
