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

We were traveling on business and found the Hotel Plaza Francia to be an excellent bargain in a good location on the edge of the Recoleta district. The staff was very helpful in arranging tours and making reservations for us at various restaurants (since neither one of us spoke Spanish). The room was fine, not fancy. Nice view of Buenos... More

The location is excellent. The staff is kind and helpful. The rooms are average, with worn out carpets that must be replaced. The bathrooms are very small. At times, a putrid smell came off from the bathroom, and the staff plugged the drain at the bathroom floor. Their prices keep going up (x 3 during the past 3 years), and... More

This hotel has a great location in Recoleta right near the cemetery and some great restaurants/shopping. The staff was pleasant and friendly. However, the rooms are rather run down. The carpet was filthy in our room and one of my travelmates would only shower in flip flops because the shower was so dirty.
