My wife and I have been there for a week in February. If you are not looking for a resort, it is a very good hotel. It is clean and comfortable. The breakfast is wonderful. The staff is very helpful. The location is also very good: it is in Recoleta (very nice neighborhhod), close to the subway, to many bus... More

This hotel had an English speaking reception staff, that tried to be as helpful as possible. Unfortunately, the Manager left much to be desired, so they were not as responsive to our complaints as they should have been. We traded a two room suite timeshare in Hollywood Florida for a two room suite here....but we received one room and no... More

The Buenos Aires Design Suites is well situated near Santa Fe and Caillo across from a small park. It has newer rooms and older rooms. The newer rooms are similar but appointed in a more user friendly way ie places to set suitcases etc. The newer rooms are accessed through the computer room. Ask for them if you have a... More

We booked just one night as a stopover and arrived at the hotel very early in the morning. The staff were so accommodating and let us checkin well before 2pm, after a long bus trip. The rooms are compact and even have a real coffee machine for your use within a small kitchenette. The rooms were clean and the decor... More

I loved this place and would recommend it to everyone. There is an immediate calming, oasis-like experience just walking in, passing the pool on the way to the elevators. The hotel is in an excellent location, close to tourist attactions. There is good security (in that your room key activates the elevators). Rooms are large and bright with lots of... More

It's not cheap to stay here and competition is tough when you start getting into this price bracket, so I was torn between giving it a 3/5 or a 4/5. 1) The breakfast is quite impressive for Argentina, there is a really good selection. 2) The staff are very friendly and helpful 3) The rooms are a good, our toilet/bathroom...

The hotel was nice enough to upgrade us since we were on our honeymoon and it was my husbands birthday, so we ended up in a suite with a huge balcony. The bed was comfy and the bathroom was spacious, we appeared to be the only room on the floor too so that was a bonus. This hotel appears to... More

Rooms were nice - clean, well appointed. Free wifi. Staff helpful. Close to Avenida Santa Fe and a subway stop. Twenty minute walk to most of the historical site. The hotel occupies three buildings: avoid the front one as companions complained of street noise.

As we run our own travel business, Explorer Travel we decided to stay in Buenos Aires for 7 nights to meet with potential business partners and to view the city in full. The hotel was central to most areas of the capital city and there was easy access to the buses and metro. I would certainly recommend this hotel for... More
