I booked this hotel on others comments here, but what I did not realize was that it was also the first place that Eva Duarte Peron rented an apartment. Such a very lovely hotel and all the history associated with it. Food and service were excellent. Francisco at front desk was very knowledgable and very helpful. Definitely a gem in... More

I have stayed in the other Melia in the center of town (Reconquista). This one is much smaller with a different ambience. Kind, helpful staff, Superb breakfast thrown in with the very reasonable room price. Recommend calling the hotel for the best price, rather than doing it on the net. All the staff speak English. Rooms (only 4 per floor)... More

My daughter booked the hotel for nine nights based on Trip Advisor's recommendations. The following is a personal review of the hotel, it's staff, it's accommodations and the over all experience at this boutique hotel. When one walks into the lobby, the visual is like that of an exclusive, high ceiling home, filled with expensive furniture, tapestry carpets on the... More

GM Cayetano Montanelli lead a wonderful staff by example and provided me with excellent service. They helped me with my computer, telephone, directions and many suggestions that made my 3 night stay in Buenos Aires a fantastic experience. The hotel, a former home of Evita Peron, is beautifully furnished and decorated. I was able to walk to Teatro Colon, museums,... More

During our first visit to Buenos Aires we were fortunate to stay at the Melia Recoleta Plaza. The staff helped us plan our outings, helped with reservations and always welcomed us by name when we returned each evening. The only reason I did not give it a 5 rating is that there are things like one elevator for 9 floors,... More

Is a fully renovated 100+ years building where Evita leaved for a couple of years, the hotel is full of details like every room has a name of a famous person and a is full of Evita’s pictures, I actually took the stairs so I could visit each floor. The decoration is very classic which makes you feel that you... More

Great location. Wonderful staff. Large comfortable room & bath (shower). Very reasonable with a great breakfast and soft Jazz playing in the background. Near museums & many good restaurants. A former residence of Eva Peron as well as a short walking distance to parks. It is also near the Recoleta Cemetary where Eva Peron's mausoleum is located.

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.
