A cute boutique hotel in the Las Canitas neighborhood. This area is a locus of hip restaurants and bars, but if you are planning on sightseeing, it is quite far from sites of interest. You will have to take taxis or walk to the metro to reach anywhere.
The rooms are very small; even with a room upgrade, the two of us were tripping over each other. And I am comparing this to even budget hotels in Europe. I can't imagine what the standard room would be like. Breakfast was limited but excellent quality, breakfast staff were friendly, front desk a bit brisk and not very helpful. Wireless Internet was fast and flawless.
We moved to another hotel, Urbanica Suites, which was further out but no less convenient to the metro ("Subte") with much larger rooms and more helpful staff.
Take the cancellation policy, which is provided in advance, seriously. With the uncertainty of weather and international flights to B.A. you cannot be sure that you will arrive the day you expect, but you will definitely be charged the full day regardless of the occupancy of the hotel. So if this is a business expense, you might not care so much, but for your personal vacation dollars, I can't recommend the 248 Finisterra for the start of your stay.
