Loi Suites are conveniently located in downtown Buenos Aires where you can either walk around or take the metro at the nearest stop. The suites at this hotel can accomodate a family of 4 in its two bedroom suites. There is also a small kitchenette and a living room. I did not like the conditions in which the furniture, the...

Unfortunately I can't give 5 stars to a hotel that charges for Wi-Fi in the room and also charges per device. You can use another device but you have to log off and then log in on another device. It is free in the lobby but it would be much nicer to have it free in the room! Having said... More

Lovely Boutique Hotel. Hotel staff were very helpful and went out of their way to assist me in any way they could. Very close to excellent shopping malls and restaurants. Very nice breakfast provided every morning.

Although this hotel is fairly cheap for buenos aires it's really not good value for money. The room was small and pretty unimpressive. We booked as it advertised a kitchen suite which turned out to just be a kettle and microwave - pretty hard when we wanted to self cater. The room wasn't that clean on arrival - hairs on... More

This hotel/apartment is very close to all the main attractions and within close vicinity of the 9 de Julio Avenida, Calle Florida, Santa Fe etc.. It is not a 5 star hotel but very well maintained and most of all was clean including linens and bathrooms. The breakfast was acceptable offering medialunas and coffee as well as some fruit. If...

The best thing about this hotel is location, good shopping right by the hotel and very good restaurants. Couple of blocks from Calle Florida (pedestrian) for shopping and dining. Staff is efficient enough, good buffet breakfast. Rooms are adequate, not a four-star hotel but then neither are the prices. Good enough for a couple of nights.

My wife and I were traveling in Argentina and our travel agent booked us in the Loi Suites Esmeralda. Let me begin by saying that calling this a suite is a joke. A tiny kitchen with a two burner cooktop that had to be lit with a match while the gas was on. Cockroaches in the room. Located next to... More

We scored this hotel as part of a package. Check was not a good start. No help with our bags from the transport or to the room. We requested a plug for the bath early on and despite a reminder, it never arrived, Reception staff seemed surly, disintereted and acually walked as we approached the counter. Rooms are smallish, a... More

Our last time in this apart hotel was around 20 years ago. Our expectations were not high, and the overall service quality we received last week was VERY POOR. The Heating system in the room we got (Nro 608) was out of order (in Winter time!!). We requested several times from 11 PM to 2 AM) the front desk to... More

Staying in Retiro

Neighborhood Profile
Retiro
Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the port, mean this neighborhood is never truly at rest. One minute you are walking down a street dotted with ornate mansions and luxurious shop windows and the next you find yourself surrounded by a sea of people racing to catch their train or bus. It is this juxtaposition of never-ending comings and goings and quiet, elegant luxury that defines Retiro, as well as Buenos Aires, a city where sharp contrasts are all around.
