“Pleasantly Surprised”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

The wife and I stayed at the Hotel Boca by Design Suites, as part of our South America tour and were pleasantly surprised. The hotel location is good and cetnrally based, if you want to get to the main areas, plus a metro station is literally behing the holtel. The hotel is football based, around the Boca Juniors team of Argentina and so around you will see a lot of reference to this around the hotel.

The rooms were really clean, and the beds are comfy and the staff are very helpful and multilingual so that made it a pleasure.

The rooms are well equipped with most amenities, including a large screen TV and Power shower and coffee machine. There is no Irons or Ironing boards - so you may want to bring along a travel one if you want.

Overall very pleased with the hotel.

Room Tip: Bring along a travel iron!!!

We really enjoyed our staying there. The hotel is beautiful - very colorful and clean. The rooms are big and well design. .
The stuff is very helpful and friendly - they always volunteer to help, no need even to ask.
The WIFI works perfect. The location is great – in the center of BA.

Boca hotel is related to the Boca Argentina Football (soccer) team and the hotel pays homage to their players here. I stayed here at the recommendation of a friend and it was a very pleasant experience. Boca colors are everywhere with a gift shop on the basement floor. it seems that all the rooms have a players portrait on the door. I stayed on the 11th floor room (1104) i believe and this was the Maradona room. The rooms are nice size but it seems they do not all have a desk. i believe the even numbers rooms are without desk and the odd number rooms have a desk. also there are no Irons in the room but there is a ironing service. I travel for business so i prefer to have an iron in the room. the restaurant is good quality food and the Gym is great!! most hotels i have stayed in Argentina have little gyms but this one had a nice sized one with real weights and cardio equipment. the hotel is about 16 blocks from Puerto Madero so you can walk to it if you are not in a rush to get there. the staff is very friendly and i saw several soccer and basketball athletes staying there so you will probably run into sports celebrities there.

The price is really good considering it is in a busy section of Buenos Aires. it might be and introductory rate as the hotel is fairly new.

If the hotel reads this. please consider putting irons and ironing boards in the room. my life would be complete.

Room Tip: if your a Boca fan, ask for a room with your Boca player on the door

Built as part as a museum of the Boca Football team, this hotel is prety nice.

Rooms are nice and clean, but don't have too many amenities. They claim to have more online and in their brochure, so check before you get there.

Breakfast is very basic - and you have the same every day. So after a few days, you'll probably find you go out to eat!

But it's a good location.

It's a new hotel, so many of the service basics aren't there yet. But when things setlle down a little, this place will probably be one of the best new hotels in BA.

Travelling with an almost three-year-old is never easy. You need space, cleanliness and proximity to the best attractions. This hotel complies with all of that but really goes above and beyond in terms of service. The staff was super nice, knowledgeable and helpful, the decoration was awesome and the food; just superb... there is not a single thing that I can say against this hotel or their staff, it really made our vacations something to remember.
Special thanks to Diego who gave us all the ' inside' tips, but really everyone was great.

loved the bed and the towels...a couple of friends already made a reservation..prices online are better than ' walk ins'. Do stay here...

Room Tip: any room is great but perhaps the ones at the top are a little brighter because of the proximity wit...
