We actually ended up in this hotel because of a screw up at a sister hotel down the street. Hotel is in a great location, the staff are very friendly and facilities are very good. However the cleanliness and maintenance of the rooms was terrible. There were stains on the carpets and walls, paint peeling off the bathroom ceiling, black... More

Our room had a standard from the 60´s. The staff had a not friendly attitude and we asked for hot water (as we had our own tea bags) and they told us we had to pay for that. The breakfast was poor. It was relly over prized. The only good thing to say is that the location was great.

We booked the hotel for its location and it was even better than anticipated. We had booked an executive room and it was amazing. I actually like the atmosphere of older hotels. Our room, which was the size of an apartment, was clean and comfortable. We had requested the cemetery view which was spectacular, oarticularly at night. The staff were... More

Hotel Etoile offers the best location in Recoleta. Safe and in In front of cemetary. Therefore it makes it quieter!Great breakfast with choices from fruit/bread/cereals/juices etc..Great staffs and friendly. Many restaurants near by. They are a bit pricy, but to compare to North America, still cheaper. Easy access by bus or subway to everywhere. Rooms are adequate, but need updating.... More

The Etoile hotel's best feature is its location which cannot be faulted and that's the only reason that I booked it. The whole hotel requires updating and redecorating as it looks tired and dog eared. Although we were upgraded to a larger room this didn't compensate for the poor fixtures inside. The lights were not working until the key system... More

This well situated hotel that stands directly opposite the gates of the Recoleta Cemetary, must have been the coolest place in Buenos Aires in the seventies and eighties. One can't fault the location, the views and the lobby art works. One can certainly not fault the service. It was excellent, including an unexpected upgrade to a vast suite we received... More

The hotel is right in front of the Recoleta Cemetery on a pedestrian street with many restaurants, so it has a great location! The staff were very attentive and offered to store my luggage until my taxi came to pick me up later. Breakfast offered many choices of fruits, breads, cereal, and some hot items like eggs and sausage. The... More

The hotel is located in a beautiful area, the Recoleta. The rooms are big, spacious, ours had 3 full size bed for just 2 people, so you could fit 6 people and a roll away bed without problems. the balcony was a nice touch. the view from the roof top is breathless, nice panoramic view of the area, plus excellent...

The only thing going for this hotel is the location. It is very dirty and dated. The room smelt really bad, the carpets are so stained and the mouldy grout in the bathroom was gross. Staff was grumpy and wouldn't even give us a late checkout of an extra hour.
