Our room was a bit dated and had some stains on the carpet, but was in such a great location across from the Recoleta Cemetery (Eva Peron) and the wonderful weekend markets on the green parkway across the street. So many cafes and restaurants nearby and friendly staff to make the stay wonderful. The roof-top bar has a beautiful sunset... More

Stayed in a suite for a great price. Bigger than some apartments, bath you could swim in, but stained carpets and a bit run down. Wifi only works in front room. Breakfast better than average. Location can not be beat. Overlooking cemetery.

This hotel is a bit dated but you can't beat the location. It is located right across from the famous Recoleta Cemetery where you can see Evita's tomb. There is also a mall located right on the corner and a fairly good sized park just kitty corner where they have periodic arts and crafts for sale. On weekends you can... More

The elevators are downright scary when in order. The front desk staff are rude and unhelpful so don't waste your time even trying to ask for directions. Far from any metro line or stop. Carpet was stained and dirty as was the grout in the large old bathroom. Maids did not clean sheets or vacuum when cleaning the room. Only... More

Don't stay here. I have travelled the world twice in the last 18 months and this has by far been my most unpleasing stay. Considering this is the top end of BA this hotel is run down and dirty. That I could deal with, but several roaches running around my bathroom along with hairs and drip marks around the toilet... More

My brother-in-law recommended this hotel. The rooms were excellent, the breakfast amazing, the staff friendly and efficient. 5 Stars all the way - note - it's directly in front of the cemetary where Eva Peron was buried. ADMISSION IS FREE. Some guys will stand out at the entrance and act like they charge for maps- just ignore them and walk... More

This was my second stay in this older and comfortable facility in a pleasant and well-located neighborhood (Recoleta). Breakfast and other meals were very good. Sidewalk cafes outside front entrance were good places to relax and enjoy the scene.

Room was a little dated but the staff made up for that with their friendliness and willing to help with anything and everything. I can't say enough about the staff, they treated so well. I definitely recommend this hotel and would absolutely stay there again and I am very picky.

We stayed at this hotel at 3 separate visits during a trip to Argentina and Antarctica in January 2015. Our first stay was one night in a room with a beautiful view, but with stained rug and in need of renovation. It had a dirty feel to it. The 2 next stays (of 3 nights each), however, were so much...

If the only thing you care about is location, then this is the place to stay. It is located near tons of restaurants, shops, a remarkable park, La Recoleta Cemetary (where Eva Peron is buried) and a beautiful church - Nuestra Senora del Pilar.

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.
