Rooms are clean and spacious and the Hotel is in the Middle of what looks... More

This place is an absolute gem. Great location in Recoleto, a short walking distance to all the sights. The staff here were incredible. Everyone was friendly, helpful and went the extra mile to make suggestions, arrangements, etc. I can't say enough to commend them. The room we had was spacious, quiet and comfortable. Breakfast was great - a wonderful selection.... More

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The location was fantastic; walking distance to most points of interest and in a beautiful neighborhood! We left Buenos Aires for a few days to go to Iguassu Falls and when we returned to this same hotel we were not satisfied with our room (it smelled quite bad) so they upgraded us... More

The hotel staff was very courteous. The restaurant was only adequate; they weren’t prepared for guests to eat or drink outside of their restricted serving times. The included breakfast was limited. The location of the hotel is in a safe area but is not very close to the tourist section. We felt safe walking to and from the hotel at... More

We stayed for three nights at the Howard Johnson Recoleta in the fourth week of Sept 2007. After searching through the internet, we found the cheapest rate for this hotel through Venere.com - we paid USD110 per night including breakfast and taxes. When we arrived, no one helped us with our baggage. Additionally, we booked a double bed, but when... More

Location: While the location is near the Recoleta district, it's not quite there, so don't be misled by the name. You will need a cab to get to the cemetery, the church and the park. The street it is on (Marcelo T. de Alvear) is not one of those charming streets in Recoleta, you will need to walk four or... More

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.
