Lets say your friend had a restored townhouse in Buenos Aires. Wouldn't you want to stay there? We really felt at home in this hotel. Our room was comfortable and interestingly decorated. All the rooms have high ceilings that add to the spaciousness. The housekeeping staff was among the best I have experienced, and as an occasional business traveler, I have stayed at some pretty nice hotels. The rooms here were immaculate.
As for the friends, we felt like we were treated, like friends here, not just hotel guests. Alex and all other staff at the hotel went out of their way to help not just me and my wife, but every other guest. As an American, I loath to expect that everyone speak English in a non English country. Yet, it was most convenient having English speaking staff at the hotel; it really helped get us oriented (and they recommended some GREAT local restaurants).
The only downside (for some) might be the location (you re not in Palermo or Recoleta). For us, being near the mall and subway was a plus. Cabs are always available because of the mall. The subway gets you downtown in 10 minutes for a whopping 50 cents or so.
And the rates are, maybe not as cheap as staying with a friend, but very reasonable.
All in all, I highly recommend the hotel.
