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

Spent four nights in buenos aires,at the Serena. The room was well appointed, clean and spacious. We chose the executive suite. We had view on the courtyard, which was peaceful. The staff is most helpful. They will provide you with currency change at a reasonable rate. The swimming pool is more a relaxation pool than a swimming pool. It is... More

A boutique hôtel in a convenient location. Very friendly and helpful staff especially Matias our barman. The courtyard is comfortable and a pleasant place for en evening cocktail. The Recoleta Cemetery and Pilar Church are within easy walking distance. Highly recommended.

Dear Guest, Thank you very much to share your experience at Serena Hotel. As you mention our courtyard is a unique space, something quite difficult to find in hotels, where people can enjoy our cocktails, snacks, tapas or a glass of Malbec wine. The Bar offers a daily happy hour from 6pm to 8 pm, where you can relax after... More

I have stayed here a number of times. It is a small boutique type hotel. Staff are friendly and professional. Speak only a little English, so be careful if you are not reasonably proficient in Spanish. However they try to make up for this by being very helpful. Breakfast is reasonable. Hotel is very quite and located close to some... More

LOOK NO FURTHER. This is the hotel to stay if you are not locked into Hyatt, Hilton, Marriott and other large chains. Location is PERFECT in a very safe and upscale area with easy access to various neighborhoods. There are restaurants and other large hotels (Four Seasons, Hyatt) around the corner if you are looking for a high-end hotel bar/restaurant... More

Unfortunately, we could ONLY give 5 stars. We would have given more if possible. We found this hotel on Trip Advisor. It was in a great location for sure, and quiet at night. The facility is beautiful and the breakfast is great. But as good as it appeared, the staff was even better. They gave all sorts of tips and... More

We spent four nights at the Serena Hotel prior to embarking on a cruise to Rio. The hotel is located in a very convenient location in the Recoleta. Our room (208) overlooked the interior courtyard which was quiet and relaxing except when they played opera in the bar/breakfast area downstairs. The included breakfast was fairly basic but adequate.
