After three weeks of travelling the Poetry was exactly what we needed. To have our morning coffee in pyjamas was a treat. The staff was wonderful, helpful and friendly. A great deal of thought has gone into making your stay comfortable starting with a nice bottle of Malbec.

I stayed here for a week during my 1st time visit to Buenos Aires and it was the best choice ever. The arquitecture of the building is amazing, the staff is superb and the rooftop pool is simply unique. This is also a very clean boutique hotel and is also located in a very safe area in Buenos Aires. Thank... More

Over a period of two weeks we stayed in both penthouses and apartment 4B. Apartment 4B was by the far the best room, it is significantly larger than penthouse 5B which is a better room than the studio penthouse room 5A which I would only rate as three out of five. The penthouses have decent size terraces on the roof... More

The Poetry Building is absolute perfection. The staff is the most gracious and accommodating we have ever experienced in many years of travel. The apartments are wonderful. We rented Apt. 3B which is a one bedroom overlooking the street on one side and a charming courtyard on the other. The apartment is large, furnished beautifully and absoutely quiet. The Recoletta...

We elected to use the hotel arranged transportation from the airport. A true blessing after the 10 hour flight! Staff so kind and accommodating. They exchanged dollars, spent an hour introducing the room, neighborhood and building. Brief local lunch, dip in pool then nap. Grocery store near and wonderful pizza. Now enjoying the fabulous Malbec given as a welcoming gift.... More

We recently stayed at the Poetry Building during the first few nights of our trip to Argentina. All of the positive reviews were spot on. Our apartment was terrific--clean, quiet, spacious and comfortable. It was also here that we had the best wifi in all of Argentina.The concierge staff were knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. Overall, it was the best value--and... More

Normally we stay in five star up market hotels but on the advice of a friend who recommended the Poetry Building to us we thought why not. We stayed there several times over the course of our six week holiday. Felt like home, we were welcomed each time like we were friends coming back. We got to stay in three... More

My husband, John, and I stayed in studio 4A for 5 nights. it had a large balcony but unfortunately it was not conducive to sitting outside since the views were completely unattractive (old run down buildings) and the tables and chairs were not very clean or comfortable. Sadly, the same can be said of the pool area - it needs... More

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.
