We chose this hotel based upon the Trip Advisor feedback among other things and were very happy that we did. They were having a winter sale so we upgraded to a room with a terrace/balcony and weren't disappointed. The hotel is small which we prefer. It allows the staff to give you more personal attention. The room was quite large with all the amenities except washcloths, which are not a common hotel feature in South America (or ironing boards). We had 2 sinks, a nice plus, and due to the room design, they were in the room itself and not the bathroom, which consists of the shower, toilet and bide. The only drawback to this arrangement is that there is no mirror in front of the sink for shaving or applyig makeup, although there is one to the side and one behind. We managed admirably. A continental breakfast is included in the room price and was really quite satisfying with really good coffee.
We chose the neighborhood because it is close to many restaurants and clubs. We walked to many of them during our stay and most were very good recommendations from the hotel staff. We ate Mexican, Argentinian and Italian and then walked the meals off during the few blocks walk back to the hotel. The neighborhood is safe, if unremarkable, and quiet, except on weekends due to the clubs. There are no sights around here, so you do have to take a taxi or the metro, about 10 blocks away, to get to the tourist areas. However, unlike El Centro, where there are a lot of sights and hotels, you can walk around safely at night, so our reasoning was why stay downtown when we can only enjoy it during the day?
Anyway, the real reason to stay here is the staff. They are extremely helpful and will assist you with anything from purchasing toiletries to making dinner reservations. Without a doubt, this is the best staff I've encountered anywhere in the world. This alone makes the hotel a great place to stay but factor in everything else and you cannot miss.
Would I stay here again, yes!
