Over the course of three weeks, I stayed here several times. Rooms are clean, modern and well-appointed. Staff is helpful...a bit "distant", perhaps, but that's to be expected in a large city. Recoleta location is convenient. My only complaint is the charge (modest) for Wi-Fi.

We actually stayed at the Bel Air three times over the course of a two week visit to Argentina. When we made side trips from Buenos Aires up to Puerto Iguazu or over to Uruguay, this is the place to which we came back. The Bel Air thus became our home base for the entire trip, and we came to...

We've always enjoyed and relished the idea of staying at this quaint hotel placed in an elegant neighbourhood, a few metres away from Vicente Lopez Square. However, this time we were appalled to encounter several problems: at night the restaurant did not work, there was only a receptionist at the front desk who did her best to solve our problems....

We really liked the area -Recoleta- in which this hotel is located. Not as glitzy as Al Centro but safe, has good shopping, good "local" restaurants, and walking distance to attractions like Recoleta cemetery and Teatro Colon. The hotel is basic, but clean and quiet with helpful staff and a reasonable breakfast. They stored extra luggage for us while we... More

It is difficult not to recommend this hotel because it is well located in Recoletta, our room was very adequate, the breakfast quite acceptable and near well-known attractions. The price was reasonable. Except for a young man named Nicolas, who went out of his way to be friendly and helpful, the rest of the staff was aloof. They do not... More

The hotel has had a recent update and our room was very nice, modern with a large bath. The breakfast buffet was good but the area is small and the staff servicing the buffet not friendly. We had a hard time connecting to the wifi which is an additonal charge. Location was very good and felt safe walking around the... More

The hotel is located in Recoleta, but a 10" walk to the main touristic area. It is walking distance to Colon Theatre (15") and central area, like famous Florida Av (30"). I stood in a superior room, with no street view. It was a big room with basic amenities. The hotel staff seem to be always in bad mood, including... More

We arrived early in the morning, we took an overnight flight (no other available), the receptionist was very unkind and rude; he did the least possible to accommodate us, until I asked to talk to the manager, who never showed up. The breakfast is not good at all, you'll have better chances looking someplace else. The web page sells more... More
