Our stay at serena didn't start off on the right note. We booked for a long stay 11 nights via Expedia. I have stayed at this hotel on 2 previous occasions and enjoyed my stays immensely. Once we checked in we where taken to room 403. The room was not to standard very small, stains on the carpet. I went... More

I just stayed at the Serena for 4 nights for business and really enjoyed it. It is a lovely boutique hotel in a great area of Buenos Aires. The Four Seasons is across the street which should tell you something. There is a lovely spa area with a pool, sauna and steam room which I really enjoyed after 18 hours... More

This place has a really super feel with great staff and nice rooms. The breakfasts are perfect with fruit, juices, as well as an exciting array of Argentine pastries. I would recommend it to anyone. I didn't try any of the spa treatments as there are too many other things to do! The Recoleta cemetery is very close as is... More

I spent 4 days at the Serena Hotel in September 2014 and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. This boutique hotel situated in Recoleta, felt very safe, offered easy access to many of BA's attractions, and offered a variety of amenities, which included; indoor heated pool, steam room, sauna, gym, fantastic enclosed patio/bar area, and the breakfast was very good. Our room... More

Very nice hotel close to the nice area of Recoleta. Very good service, very nice breakfast. Worth the money. Very well trained staff. Classy and comfortable. Close to shopping mall Patio bullrich and one of the best Italian restaurant of the city, Mancini.

Serena Hotel is situated in a great area of Buenos Aires, with a very elegant and European feel to it. Is very safe to walk day and night, close to the classic spots like Recoleta Cemetery, Alvear Avenue and all the amazing restaurants and cafés in this area. Our room was modern, spacious and with a quality finish. It was... More

This small boutique hotel is located on a quieter street in Recoleta, a more upscale and safer part of BA. Didn’t feel unsafe during my stay in BA (although the locals here seemed a bit more concerned and did advise me to exercise a bit of caution and be wary of your surroundings). Notwithstanding that, BA is a beautiful and... More

The Serena Hotel was a breath of fresh air. Wonderful, engaging staff, especially Matias at the bar. The atmosphere is very Zen and the calming affect simply embraces you. It feels like you’ve escaped to a remote resort outside of the city. Let me tell you, the bed is beyond comfortable. It is easily number one on my list of... More

Our local BA friend didn't think Palermo to be safe enough at night, and recommended Recoleta. After careful research on Trip Advisor we gave him 3 names for site visits, after which he picked Serena hands down. We're so glad that he did. Quiet calm in the big city. Superb location on a quiet street, with ready access to a... More

We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of our holiday. We paid for a superior room and it was worth it. On the 6th floor we even had a substantial balcony overlooking the street which was lovely. The room was great; its a boutique hotel and all is modern. Lovely bathroom and room fittings. Very clean, very neat.... More
