“Truly fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

Beautiful hotel, rooms have a clean, modern and comfortable aesthetic. Vines spill down in front of the window outside - feels like an oasis in an otherwise busy part of the city.
We liked the walkable location to restaurants in Retiro, Recoleta, Plaza del Mayo and the beautiful Plaza San Martin. We skipped breakfast in favor of heading to a cute cafe 3 blocks away we spotted the day before. Helpful staff - fluent English, gave us a good city overview at check in.
Wish we'd had another night here!

Great boutique hotel!
The room is well appointed and spacious enough for three adults. We travelled in a group of eight and all rooms were of the same high standard. The concierge was extremely helpful with local advice on security and food & restaurant options with suggested routes for shopping and sightseeing.
Not only were the amenities well appointed the sauna in room and spa bath make for a great therapeutic experience after walking the streets for hours!
Within walking distance was a beautiful park and shopping street that converted into a mall.
We tried a number of the suggested restaurants and were more than satisfied by choice and quality. Within a short walk of the hotel we ate at Federal a worthy local authentic restaurant of the region with great rustic decor.

We only stayed here for one night because we had a stop over in Buenos Aires and departed again the next morning. The location of the hotel is excellent and only 15 min taxi ride to Aeroparque (one of the airports of BA, mostly used for domestic flights). Entering the hotel it immediately gave you a relaxing and calm feeling; very friendly staff and the plants and green area in the reception create a nice atmosfeer. Rooms a very spacious, with a very big bathtub/jacuzzi and also a very big shower. Nice and modern design, with nice white bed linen and a natural feel. Since we had an early flight; we could have our breakfast earlier then normal without any problems. Free and very quick wifi in the hotel. They also have an "honesty bar", where you just take your drink/snack and write what you took on your individual room panel. Great system and again shows the policy of the hotel. I would recommend this hotel!

If you are looking for a knowledgeable staff with top notch service and a hotel with nice amenities then run the other way (fast). If you are looking for a clean, basic room with no frills then you have found your place. With a couple of exceptions, I found the staff mind-blowingly inept at their jobs (directions, reservations, etc.) which made the overall experience lackluster.

I was in Buenos Aires for my honeymoon and stayed in a couple of business hotels prior to this one. Upon arrival it was a breath of fresh air to be greeted in a personal way by the friendly staff and given tips on what to enjoy while in BA. The foyer is lined with greenery on the walls and DVDs the guests can borrow. The staff also offered to book any events for us, and we ended up seeing a Boca Jrs match and tango show on our last evening which they arranged and facilitated payment for. The hotel is in a good location, within walking distance to Retiro bus station and Avenida Florida where many shops are based. The room itself was lovely with white, crisp linen and a jacuzzi hot tub. We were given a nice sachet of free bath salts because it was our honeymoon. Breakfast was also available in our rooms instead of downstairs. The hotel prides itself on being a clean living, natural hotel, yoga mats are provided and a range of fresh
juices. Compared to the big standard impersonal hotels around I think this one is delightful.

My husband and I spent several nights at Casa Calma before going on our Antarctic cruise. Couldn't have stayed in a more charming and comfortable small hotel. The staff was incredible....English speaking and very friendly. Our room was spacious and, like the entire hotel, beautifully designed and luxurious. Two rooms per floor, each with its own double Jacuzzi tub and a lovely sauna adjacent to the wonderful shower (4 shower heads!). Breakfast is served in a small area at end of the lobby and was very good.....buffet style, but eggs and omelets are available as well. This hotel was a fabulous discovery....easy walking distance to many sights and a very short walk into Recoletta. The young staff couldn't have been more helpful and kind. A true gem in Buenos Aires!

My room was large, well equipped. The bathroom with a large spa is nice. Nights are quiet even if the hotel is located in the busy center of Buenos Aires. Wifi works perfectly. Breakfast are good. It´s easy to get taxis in the hotel street, or to call radio taxi. Differents styles of restaurants are on a short walking distance.
