We only had a day and one-half to explore Buenos Aires, so getting a hotel in a central location was very important to us. The Bel Air Hotel was located in the Recoleta neighborhood and was in walking distance to everything. The room was small but very clean, and the breakfast in the morning was good. They held our bags... More

Very nice hotel and excellent quality/price ratio in a good location in Buenos Aires. Staff was very helpful and super nice, breakfast is copious and very much worth it. Rooms are really quiet and well kept. One caveat on the bathroom that did not look it has been renovated in a while but was kept very clean.

We loved staying in Hotel Bel Air-4 nights on trips in and out of B. A. The hotel is in the heart of the Recoleta neighborhood, which is a beautiful old upscale residential area with lots of good restaurants. It is a short taxi ride to downtown and to most of the attractions in Buenos Aires. The clerks were especially... More

I found a young guy at the front desk not helpful and friendly (with longer hair). When I asked him how long I had to take on foot to a certain place, he answered: it depends on the person. Mmm....well.....then I asked the approximate time just for reference. He said it really depends on the person as someone may walk... More

Nothing special. Staff quite friendly. When I asked for an early check-in they took their time to find a room and then charge $50. Room was fine: bed comfortable. Decor bland. No iron or ironing board. Shower a bit leaky. Restaurant closes ridiculously early. Breakfast ok, but nothing to write home about.

Buenos Aires is one of my favourite cities, in spite of the terrible economy in Argentina and the social unrest asado is still asado at its best in that country. I landed in Bs Aires last Thursday in the morning for a quick two day meeting. Not much traffic from EZE to the hotel location in Recoleta because of a... More

Nice small hotel in a very centric location at La Recoleta neighborhood in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Nice rooms, clean, and good service. Good restaurants around. Very close to Santa Fé avenue, where you can walk to a lot of local stores and restaurants

The hotel is nice in an excellent location. Our room was large and ell equipped but it was at the back of the building and very close to the electricity generator which was working 3 out of the 4 days we were there. They charge extra for the wi-fi and it's patchy and slow. Staff at the cafeteria is not... More

A classic hotel in Buenos Aires, Argentina, many of which were built for FIFA's World Cup 1978. This one used to be an hospital before the hotel was born. Clean but unfortunately with a strong sewage smell coming from the bathroom, not only in my room but also at my peer's room. My main complaint was night temperature of my... More

I loved this hotel. It is very clean, centrally located and inexpensive. The breakfast was included and surprisingly good. The next time I come to Argentina I will use this as home base and go all over the country. My only complaint is the charge for WiFi.
