Beautiful boutique hotel located in a nice area. Room is nice and comfortable. Poor management. Such a shame that this great place does not have the appropriate staff. Part of the them seemed to have a bad attitude and were not helpful to guests.

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. The decoration of the hotel is great, beautifull and looks like a design hotel with... More

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. Wished we had the budget to upgrade [40% more !] for the last 5 days in BEAUTIFUL Argentina. Helpful staff: from bus info to putting our vacuum-packed beef in the freezer... More

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

We came to Buenos Aires on our honeymoon and stayed 2 nights here. The staff spoke great English and allowed us early check-in without us requesting it before hand. Our room was nice and clean. The room we originally reserved was on the 2nd floor and on the back of the building. It was very small and unfortunately gave us... More

We stayed here for three nights on either side of an Iguazu excursion. It came recommended by friends. Very nice. Very quiet. No good value. The front desk staff is excellent. A secure "Blue Peso" exchange is 1-1/2 blocks away. By exchanging dollars for pesos at 12.5 instead of 8.5, we saved big. No worries of counterfeiters here.

I have just come back from Argentina and stayed at this hotel for 5 nights. It is not a big hotel, Staff at the desk were very helpful, breakfast was average, good size room with a king size bed which was very comfortable. The hotel is in a lovely area, walking distance to the cemetery, lots of resterants close by.

We had to cut our stay short after changes in airline reservations. However, we did stay for half a day before going to the airport. The hotel lobby is small and compact. Part of the area is used for breakfast, which we did not get to try. Check in was easy but our room wasn't ready due to early arrival.... More

We spent the first nights of our S. American trip at this hotel in Buenos Aires and it was fine for what we wanted - not particularly sophisticated but smart enough, with a decent breakfast and within walking distance of some of the sights, such as Eva Peron's tomb, the Botanical Gardens and the like. We were disappointed that the... 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.
