My wife and I just checked out of this dump, yesterday. We were taken in by others accounts of the romontic notions of past grandour. We didn´t find it so. This once fine mansion is in sad disrepair with peeling paint, a non-functioning elevator and nightly power-outages leaving you sweating in 35 C humid BA. The non-English speaking staff explained...

You can walk to so many cool places from here including the Recolleta Cemetary, several parks, open air... More

We spent two nights at the Hotel Lion d'Or in July and enjoyed our stay. The hotel is an old embassy, which is pretty cool, and they still have the original elevator and beautiful staircase. The hotel itself is a little neglected, but we found it to be clean, and the front desk staff were very helpful. We had a... More

I thought it was very good value for Buenos Aires, considering that I was able to get a private room in Recoletta, within an easy walk of the cemetary. The old building is lovely and has a lot of personality. I was staying in a single room, which was an enclosed area on the roof with other enclosed single rooms... More

This picturesque building was once an embassy and retains an Old World charm. Located in the heart of Recoleta district it provides easy access to public transportation as well as being just 2 blocks from the Recoleta Cemetary which is very worth visiting. The rooms, although somewhat worn in appearance, are comfortable and clean. The breakfast voucher is a real... More
