“Wonderful Boutique Hotel in Perfect Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

We chose to stay at the Melia Recoleta Plaza Boutique Hotel while in Buenos Aires. The Recoleta area is very safe and has upscale shopping, close to great restaurants, and near a park. Our room was not huge but had updated design, newer bathroom and a king bed with a comfortable bed. Some rooms have outdoor hot tubs available. Breakfast buffet was included and we were happy with the choices. The pricing was right and the location was perfect for shopping. The concierge was so helpful in arranging the smaller tango show we requested at the El Querandi and scheduling the city tour. We were picked up at the hotel to make it even more convenient. Don't miss the leather shops at Cardon, Rossi Caruso, Peter Kent and Casa Lopez which are all in walking distance. The best in the area! We would stay here again.

Room Tip: Renovated king room with a hot tub. That should do it!

This hotel feels like a boutique hotel, because it is has a small and intimate feel to it. We had a large room with an outside jacuzzi and patio which was great to relax in after a long day's sightseeing. It is very close to the Recoletta cemetery, which was brilliant as we went there twice. There are some good restaurants within walking distance too.
The main drawback is that there is no concierge service and there were often queues at reception. And the room was often not cleaned when we returned to the hotel at 4.30ish. The wi-fi in our room was very good.

This small hotel was recommended by someone knowledgable about the area. We were not disappointed. From the time we arrived, we were helped right away with bags. Had to wait since we arrived at 9:30 a.m. Lobby was very warm & humid. No air conditioning. They had our room ready by 11:30, which was a nice surprise. We booked the jr. Suite which had a very comfortable bed & pillows, & a living room w/ a couch, 2 chairs & very large flat screen tv. Great AC in room. Slept really well. Breakfast served in basement was quite good. We are touring Argentina & return for one last nt. before flying back to US. We were booked into the Park Hyatt, but Melia concierge graciously kept 2 bags of ours (too much weight for internal flights). The staff was so kind & helpful, we decided to spend out last night with them instead. Also, there is a great restaurant a few doors down called Fervor. Reservation is necessary. Great seafood grill for 2 that is a must.

We were the in July 2012. This hotel is within walking distance to many attractions, such as the week end art in park two blocks away, nice restaurants and other shopping. The hotel is very nice, staff is friendly, attentive and you can always find one that speaks English if your Spanish is not so good. Breakfast was included when we stayed there. Afternoon tea is also available in the lobby for a modest charge. There is coffee/tea available in the lobby very early in the morning. Room service is available too. Most all of BA is safe, some areas are best not to go to, this area is very safe with lots of locals and tourists. Two doors away is a restaurant that serves great empanadas along with wine and beer that is great for a afternoon tapas to hold you over until restaurants open at 8 pm for dinner. We normally eat dinner at home about 6 pm, so waiting until 8 or 9 pm took a bit of fortification of food and wine.

Live Life to fullest each and every day regardless of where you might be.

Room Tip: Rooms out of the US are normally a bit small, but I go there to see not sit in room. They are very...

We stayed for two weeks a couple of years ago and really enjoyed our stay. The location is central, the rooms are comfortable, and the staff is very helpful. The spa on the top floor is a plus! Next time I'm in Buenos Aires, I'd definitely stay there.

Very well located, good breakfast, helpful staff. The wi fi internet connection should be upgraded.
Nice shops and restaurants in the neighborhoods. One negative point is the room make up service which was not ready before mid day. During our stay on December 29th, we only had our room made up only after complaining twice at the front desk. The room was ready at 2:45 pm what is nor acceptable.

Enjoyed a 4 night stay in this hotel. Very centrally located and convenient for the many bars and restaurants nearby. Very comfortable rooms and excellent breakfast buffet provided. We had upgraded to a deluxe room with a hot tub on small terrace which was nice to relax in after a long day of sightseeing. Staff were friendly and helped with any queries we had. Would recommend.

Room Tip: Deluxe room was bit more expensive but enjoyed luxury of hot tub.
