Pros - Very good breakfast, generous and a good variety Extremely helpful front desk, friendly and professional Good central location, close to many shops, restaurants Clean, nice, modern Cons - Parking a little far for my taste (although I know as an American I am used to parking in front of my door) Lobby was a little dark/dim/poor lighting.

I had one of the suites for a week long business stay. The staff was extremely helpful. This was my first time in Buenos Aries and they provided me with daily recommendations of sightseeing and restaurants. I enjoyed the location. It's within walking distance to many restaurants, shops and parks. A couple downsides from a seasoned business traveler. The desk... More

The best thing about this hotel was the location. Half a block away from Plaza Francia. Even though it´s not so centric (I think the Santa Fe area is way more centric), it was in a very nice area of Recoleta. Rooms are a little small, but stylish and clean. There is a Nespresso machine in every room! That is... More

The place is impeccable! The rooms are spacious and spotless, staff and services are great, not to mention the location, which is also strategic... Very decent breakfast with a good variety of delicious food!

I stayed at the hotel recently and cannot speak highly enough of the experience. The rooms have a great stylish feel, huge size room, big bathroom and super comfortable bed.

It is a small hotel in a great part of Buenos Aires, the Recoleta. You are near the Pilar Church, the Cementerio da Recoleta, the Museum of Belas Artes, and also from the main road to shop where most of the great brands are located.

Finishing up our 4-week driving tour of Argentina, our hotel room was simply not the most ideal. Very small, view on 4 walls in the courtyard of 15-story buildings.

We stayed at Esplendor Plaza Francia for two nights. The hotel room was very nice and clean. The staff was very helpful. The hotel is located in a convenient area of Recoleta, close to a park, the cemetary, and bus stations. The breakfast was okay. They offered a variety of pastries, fruits, and breads. They also offered some scrambled eggs.... More

Staying in Recoleta

Neighborhood Profile
Recoleta
Characterized by the French-style mansions which are the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this neighborhood is an experience like no other in Buenos Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll also find a rich cultural scene centered on the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library, and the Recoleta Cultural Center; as well as some great shopping spots, like the Buenos Aires Design Mall with an artists' fair set up in Plaza Francia every weekend.
