This is a gem of a hotel in the Recoleta neighborhood of Buenos Aires. Our room was one of 5 on the floor with a view of the rear courtyard and very quiet as a result. There is a lovely indoor pool and spa area downstairs that provided a relaxing and peaceful way to unwind each day. The real draw... More

Well located, this boutique hotel is a real gem in Buenos Aires. Staff is very efficient, breakfast outstanding and, if you are lucky enough to have a room on the garden and in the top floors, you will have a large, quiet and very comfortable room. Only problem: not all staff speak good English

This hotel suited our needs: we didn't want a mega-hotel, we wanted something small, clean and modern, in a convenient location for walking. We stayed for 3 nights, then returned a few weeks later for 2 more nights. Staff were professional and friendly. Not all spoke English, but we used waved hands and smiles, and all was good :-) Nice... More

My husband and I stayed here for a week in January. It was a great find - we were staying nearby and we needed to leave. We found it on a walk around the area and were pleased with our find. It is a small boutique hotel with a no children policy. The room was great and bathroom was very... More

Found this online for $150 (easy click I think). Really nice rooms, cute front desk guys, and my favorite: the amazingly serene pool area. Under a big glass roof with waterfall type features on the wall, this was glorious. I floated around for a while solo after an early morning run while the rain pitter-pattered on the glass. Then had... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel and really enjoyed it. The room was very nice and very clean. The location was great and we were able to walk to many delicious restaurants and stores. The Italian restaurant next door was very good! The employees at the hotel were very professional and courteous. The breakfasts were delicious and varied.... More

The Serena Hotel is a hidden secret in Recoleta. Absolutely everything is in line with what is expected of a design hotel. Service extraordinary, well acclimated lobby, indirect light just right, comfortable armchairs and a feeling of being in a bind where you could spend the whole year. Heated pool scene that really makes the guest feel like using it.... More

I found this hotel on Trip Advisor and was not disappointed. I have been to BA before and knew I wanted to stay in the Recoleta. At first I looked at the 4 Seasons, Park Hyatt, Alvear Palace, etc. but the rates were more than we wanted to spend on a room. This is a boutique hotel and is exactly... More

A small boutique hotel, just around the corner from the Four Seasons. Ideal for a few days sightseeing or business. Everything was just how it was required to be, but the room could have been better equipped . No hair dryer or coffee machine. Fabulous dulce de leche pastry for breakfast!

My only disappointment is that our flight was cancelled and we arrived a day late. The hotel employees were helpful beginning with quick replies to email questions from the states before we arrived. Everything is handled by a cadre of front desk gentleman who act as concierge, desk clerks and bellmen with good nature and at break neck speed. Juan... More
