I stayed 3 nights from March 1st until the 4th. I booked through booking.com and showed up like i was suppose to. However, upon returning home, i received an email saying that since i did not show up they would have to charge a cancellation fee ($158.35 + amex service fees). I tried contacting booking.com and the hotel but so... More

This was our first (but definetly not last) visit to Buenos Aires. We selected Melia Recoletta as we prefer small boutique hotels instead of big ones. This was very good experience. The atmosphere in this hotel is very nice. It used to have a famous Jazz Club (unfortunately no longer) but e.g. rooms still carry names of famous jazz players.... More

This is a small hotel very well located who needs urgently a remodeling. The room size is good, but furniture is old and the room needs urgently an upgrade. Air conditioning is noisy, tv is too small for today's standards. Internet was decent with regards to Argentine standards. Staff is excellent. There was noise from the street in the room.

We chose this hotel for location, its history, being the house that Juan and Eva Peron stayed in .and because it was from the reviews a more personal experience. It ticked all the boxes.

You couldn't ask for a better location in the Recoleta district. Excellent restaurants, shopping, parks are all within walking distance of this unique Melia property. Smaller than their other hotels which meant highly personalized service. The front desk staff was knowledgable with recommendations and directions.. I can highly recommend this property

Nice big room, bed was one of the most comfortable, room was very clean and wifi speed was above average. I traveled for business but the hotel location is great for tourism as well. Recoleta is a nice neighborhood and a bit quiet but close enough to tons of places.

We stayed here twice during a two week tour my wife and I were on. The most noteworthy aspect of the hotel was the helpfulness of the staff on the front desk/concierge. They were always very pleasant and willing to give advice and tips and extremely fluent in English. The worst aspect was the hot temperatures on the landings outside... More

we arrived at Evita Peron's former house at 6am off an overnight flight dead tired. Luckily I had paid for the prior night (if you want to risk it they offer a half-rate room if there is a vacancy) so we simply went straight to our room with absolutely no fuss at check-in. We were in the John Coltrane room... More

We stayed in this hotel for several days recently. Firstly let me compliment the men on reception who could not have been more helpful. The bar area/restaurant is lacking in atmosphere and it was sometimes difficult to get served even though there were never many customers. The rooms are OK but no better and this is an expensive hotel. The... More

It is a beautiful building sticking to the old times aura. The rooms are ample and well furnished, comfortable. Decoration tries to follow its past as Evita Peron residence, that it was.

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.
