We picked this hotel for a romantic week away, and overall I was very pleased - a reconditioned older building renovated with an artistic sensibility, there is nothing to complain about on an aesthetic level. Nicely laid out rooms, mixing the clean lines of modern furniture with older-style surroundings. The two-person hot-tub in our room was wonderful for relaxing. The patios of the name are very nice for sitting and reading, and the roof-top pool is a great escape from hot and humid days in Buenos Aires. Staff were uniformly helpful, friendly and informative, and clearly went a long way towards making the stay of every single guest the best they could. If the San Telmo area is where you want to be, the hotel is nicely located. However, be forwarned that the area is dirty, heavily graffitied, and not really suitable for walking after dark.
As for the flaws: The toilet in our room screamed after every flush - a two minute roar that is sure to wake anyone and keep them awake. Our room was located close to the maid station and we were awoken every morning by 830am with banging carts and sloshing water. The double bed was not terrible, but not great either, and we both awoke with sore backs that worsened as the week went on. Breakfast was ok, but hardly outstanding. While in general the room was kept spotless by the maid service, don't look under the bed. Eeeew.
On the balance, I would still recommend the hotel, as the beautiful design really won me over.
