I very much enjoyed my stay here. The staff is very friendly and helpful and always greet you as you leave or come in. Nice small "design" lobby, adjacent is the dining area where you have the included breakfast buffet. The tables are for 6 people so you must share which is fine. The breakfast is well presented and includes:... More

An excellent Hotel Boutique. I will not name the staff because all of them were wonderful. On the check in i got an upgrade that was wonderfull. The localization is perfect. You can change money (something really important in Argentina) nearby the Hotel (the staff can explain where it is). There's a small market nearby if you need to buy... More

The Francia is well located not far from the venerable Alvear Palace. This is a boutique small hotel. The rooms are small too but everything is well done and very clean. The best part of being consistently small is do are the prices. This is a GREAT VALUE. Breakfast included and a small gym make this a place to return... More

If you want to live in a luxurios and quet area of the city, and at the same time close to the craft market (on weekends), it's a perfect place to stay. Starting from lobby, you'll find "like home" atmosphere combines with design furniture and paintings. In rooms as well you will find small accents of design such as little... More

I don't have a bad word to say about this hotel. We stayed here several times when passing through Buenos Aires. Each time the staff were extremely welcoming and helpful. The hotel is located across the road from some beautiful parks, and just a short walk from La Recoleta Cemetary, which houses the grave of Eva Peron and other notable... More

OK people. I've read the reviews here and I'm gonna add another because we just returned from B.A. and stayed 4 nights at Hotel Plaza Francia in a standard room. We didn't pay extra for a room on the front of the hotel which would have a really great view if you are high enough up. And there are suite... More

We originally stayed at the Plaza Francia four years ago on our first trip to Buenos Aires and were very pleased with the selection I made online. On our recent return there, we tried to get the same room, but it was now smoking so we were moved up one floor to an identical room (a jr. suite; room #100).... More

This traditional style hotel is a reasonable choice for a great location in Recoleta, assuming you are not paying too much. It is showing its age and could certainly use updating and cleaning (rugs, wallpaper, paint, wall hangings, etc). Buenos Aires was unusually warm a few days of our stay for this time of year, and the A/C was struggling... More

This hotel was recommended to us by Argentinians familiar with Buenos Aires hotels. We pass on the recommendation to everyone else with only one small qualification (which cannot be corrected): excellent location, helpful/friendly staff, comfortable room, great price, free wifi, but very tiny bathroom (i.e., virtually no counter space). It may not be the best place for a romantic honeymoon,... More
