“Loi Suites - great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

We stayed at Loi Suites in late October 2012. The location was excellent, between Avenue Alvear and the Recoleta cemetery. The room was ok; small bedroom, and a living room. Disappointing that the TV did not face the bed, and that there were no channels in English, but it didn't matter as we were tired by the end of the day from touring. WIFI worked very well, although I had to pay to use it in the room. Breakfasts were ok - nothing special, and no variety - same every day. Room was clean and well maintained, as were public facilities of the hotel. View from our room was over the back of the hotel - not worth looking out - wish we had gotten a front room.We found the front desk quite helpful with questions we needed answering to plan our days.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in March 2012. We would return to Loi Suites. Our twin-bedded room was spacious and airy; the bathroom was a bit small. The breakfasts were good, plenty of food, but boring - the same selection every day! The fact that free WiFi was only available on the ground floor was irritating - they may have changed their policy by now. I feel very strongly that free WiFi should be available to all guests in their hotel rooms! This was a good base from which to explore tha fascinationg city of Buenos Aires! Be very careful if you are going to have leather goods made - you may not get what you had hoped for! I was ripped off by Uru Leather, situated opposite the cemetary, 2 blocks up from the hotel!

This hotel,though in the best area in B.Aires is on a v.busy street and convenient to local attractions.Good facilities and staff very friendly except the male reception and front staff.Celebrating our 40th wedding aniversary we were open to any advice about tours,etc but they sold nothing about the hotel and NEVER smiled,or asked how how stay was at the end.First impressions eh?The rest of the hotel was excellent and would stay there again if they sent their
male staff on a customer course.The pool looked dirty and right in front of the dining area.

Room Tip: Either the front or the rear view was bad but for a city break I suppose it does noes matter

Location is excellent, just around the corner from the Recoleta Cemetery, across the road from a shopping mall, and close to some excellent restaurants.

We stayed twice, at the start and end of our holiday in Argentina. Both rooms were well equipped, bathrooms very good with efficient showers.

Good view of the cemetery from the second room, and also from the lift lobby on the higher floors.

Could have done with a bit more cupboard/drawer space in the room.

WiFi is free in the lobby so that's where we used it all the time with no limits. Lobby is very comfortable.

Breakfast was excellent, lots of choice and attentive service.

Didn't see anyone using the pool and I can see that traipsing through the lobby and the restaurant to do so could be off putting!

Couple of good local restaurants - Rodi Bar and El Rincon. no frills but very good steak.

Would stay here again.

I enjoyed my stay at Loi Suites. The location is excellent including the ability to walk to La Recoleta Cemetery, Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes and Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires, MALBA. The front desk graciously offered me an upgrade to an executive suite upon arrival. The rooms were large with nice amenities. There are many restaurants and gelato places in the area including Volta around the corner.

Note: There is construction continuing adjacent to the hotel in the back.

This is the second time I've stayed at this hotel. It's nice. It has a beautiful winter garden where you can have breakfast near the swimming pool. Bedrooms are comfortable, bathrooms correctly sized. Great location. Three major drawbacks: no free wifi which for the price of the rooms is unjustifiable, the pluming is incredibly noisy, and you can hear everything your neighbors do as the rooms are not soundproof. So unless there is no one in the rooms next to you a quiet night is not really to be expected.

But... they need to change the mattress - or flip it over !
The Loi Suites Recoleta is a nice place to stay, the personnel is very welcoming, the breakfast is served in a marvelous terrace which is the best way to start the day.
Location is perfect - right across the Mall and next to some well known Buenos Aires' sites, such as the Buenos Aires Design, a mall dedicated to furniture and design. This is next to the Recoleta Cementary which is also a must. Oh and you have at least a dozen restaurants to chose from.
Just check the mattress, it was like I slept in a hole !
