This hotel is near to the Ricoleta Cemetery, easy access to the Tourist Bus, you may ask also a Van to take you to the shopping center, they will pick you up and bring back. There are several avenues and you can walk to calle Florida if you like a good walking.

I liked the hotel and the staff. Everybody was very supportive. The only thing: the frontside is very bright during the night - I don't know if the backside is better, but I would at least try the next time.

The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are large and clean with amazing bathrooms (you could fit a football team in the jacuzzi). The decoration is very urban, white walls and polished concrete and the feel is more hotel apartment. The breakfast is good, self service with no time restrictions on when you can eat it. I... More

Basement has been converted into a dining hall / library / gathering room / movie theater, this is done with a lot of taste. Rooms are also nice and have some interesting design solutions. Personnel is very friendly (including some help with converting US dollars).

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.
