Hotel is located in the best neighborhood in Buenos Aires-Recoleta, very close to Recoleta cemetery, close to very nice restaurants. Bathroom was pretty disappointing, it was clean but there was a crack in the wall, could use updating, water flow was bad, floor was damaged from flooding and it smelled musty. Overall it was what you would expect for this... More

I've always loved boutique hotels way more than big chain ones. In this case, the staff was polite and the room was nice. Wi-fi worked fine, bathtub was small indeed and the shower a little bit uncomfortable (one of those very nice looking ones but not practical,you ended up with a big mess after a long shower). Breakfast was ok,... More

This hotel is centrally located in Recoleta. It's perfect to go walking to many places, near Ave Alvear, Libertador, Plaza Francia, restaurants and shops. Rooms are a bit small and bathrooms need some updating but were still very good. I would recommend this hotel to anyone that needs to be in B.A. , specially if you don't speak the language... More

A friend suggested that I stay at this hotel in the Recoleta neighborhood. I needed to stay two weeks for work. It is really a nice spot. Close to everything. Easy access to parks, nearby museums. The staff is friendly and helpful. They have great recommendations for restaurants that are not tourist traps. The breakfast buffet in the morning provides... More

Comfortable rooms (strongly recommend a roomwith a view over Plaza Francia), very good breakfast, friendly staff and great location to stroll around the Recoleta area. In front of the hotel you will find the Palais de Glace Museum and one bolck away Alvear Street, one of the most elegant streets in the city

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.

This was my first time in Buenos Aries and they provided me with daily recommendations of sightseeing and restaurants. I enjoyed the location.

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

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.
