My husband and I stayed here for the first three nights of our weeklong trip to Argentina and absolutely LOVED this hotel. Our room (#48) was huge with a very nice layout including a sitting area with a small sofa where our college aged son who is studying in Buenos Aires napped comfortably. Honor bar with an extra sink and a small fridge were nice touches...lovely hardwood floors and a smashing bathroom with a spa-like shower...main sink was outside the shower/toilet area which made getting ready in the morning more convenient. Wonderfully comfy bed with nice linens. Furnishings are sleek and modern. The view from our window was of a cathedral and, with the window open it was noisy but no worse than what you would expect in any big city. We never heard noise from other guests or from the elevator.
For getting to Puerto Madero, Centro, and the subway, this is an awesome location. Granted, the street is not exactly picturesque but it was not horrible. Cabs are so cheap that you can get anywhere for just a few dollars but we walked to the Centro area and to Puerto Madero during the day.
The staff were very helpful and accommodating, arranging transportation from the airport, making dinner reservations (Defensa was a charming and delicious dinner recommendation from the staff!), calling taxis, and connecting us with a delighful private driver for our trip to an estancia. The computer in the lobby made keeping in touch with friends and family easy and we enjoyed the intimate restaurant/bar for drinks and the complimentary breakfast (nothing fancy but very nice and perfectly adequate).
The rooftop terrace was by far the nicest surprise...one night we hosted a small party there with friends...picked up beer, wine and snacks at a local Carrefours and enjoyed a very pleasant evening on the rooftop. We did not use the adjacent hot tub but that, too, is a nice touch!
With the advance pre-paid rate, you cannot beat this hotel for space, location, comfort, service, and charm. For our last two nights in Buenos Aires, we stayed at a boutique hotel in Palermo Soho and, while it too was quite comfortable and the street scene a little more attractive, we had a tiny room that cost more than our huge room at Hotel Moreno.
We highly recommend this hotel!
