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

Only hotel we've ever stayed where we were refused an iron and they didn't have solution to how we would get our clothes pressed for dinner as their own laundry service was closed! Staff said the policy is silly and don't agree with it but that's what the owner wants!

Couldn`t expect any more from this amazing hotel. Location is perfect: by the beach and only a 5-minute drive from Punta del Este itself. Staff really helpful and we've got a very comfortable room. I recommend! Thanks to you all.

We chose the Serena based solely on reviews in Trip Advisor and we loved everything about it. It is a great boutique hotel in a fabulous location in Recoleta. It is very convenient for seeing the sights, shopping, and great restaurants as well as just walking around a beautiful area. After spending 5 days in Buenos Aires, we decided that... More

I am Argentinean and living in the USA for 15 years. I took my wife to Buenos Aires for the first time about a month ago to show her where I was born and raised. I chose this hotel following reviews on TripAdvisor. We've traveled to many places over the years and I would not post a review unless I... More

This time in Buenos Aires we stayed with friends at the Serena Hotel and enjoyed it very much. The location is very good: Right in the middle of Recoleta, very close to nice restaurants and attractions such as the cemetery and the Saturday arts & crafts fair. The service was good but not exceptional. Some of the attendants were not... More

This hotel was a gem if you are planning to stay in Recoleta. I stayed here for a few nights without any issue. (Ok so a blowdryer was missing, but they sent a nice one to my room right away.) The outdoor patio, lobby and rooms were well decorated in trendy decor. My room was spacious and my bed was... More
