A friend who lives in BA recommended this hotel for a week long visit and I couldn't have been happier. The Serena Hotel is totally updated, spotlessly clean and located in the heart of Recoleta. It's close to the shopping area, the cemetery and other sights. Lot's of great restaurants nearby as well. The staff was extremely helpful and after... More

This is a small, clean a well located hotel in the Recoleta area. The staff is helpful and friendly. The hotel is cozy and very quiet. The breakfast is good. Close to it is the Patio Bullrich Shopping and a few good restaurants are at a walking disance, like Piegari, Fervor, Munich and the superb terrace of La Biela.

As its name implies, this was a serene small hotel in the Recoleta area of Buenos Aires. There is an open verdant courtyard behind the lobby where we enjoyed a glass of wine. The staff was very helpful, even allowing us to store some luggage there after we had departed the hotel. The rooms were roomy and clean, and we... More

It is a new, modern, stylish hotel in a very good location. we had a large room with KS bed, modern furniture, desk , shower, toilet and bidet. there was free wifi and a TV... More

I stayed here for 4 nights in February with my husband and a couple friends. Loved the 'backyard' patio- perfect for a cold glass of wine on a hot day and a wonderful place to hang out and read. The decor was simple and elegant and the front desk & restaurant employees were all friendly and very helpful, even helping... More

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

Staying in Retiro

Neighborhood Profile
Retiro
Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the port, mean this neighborhood is never truly at rest. One minute you are walking down a street dotted with ornate mansions and luxurious shop windows and the next you find yourself surrounded by a sea of people racing to catch their train or bus. It is this juxtaposition of never-ending comings and goings and quiet, elegant luxury that defines Retiro, as well as Buenos Aires, a city where sharp contrasts are all around.
