We just got back from Buenos Aires. From the time we arrived to this hotel we felt at home. Don't let the tiny lobby fool you. If you are looking for a true boutique hotel in the heart of Buenos Aires, this is the place. The rooms are even better than the pictures. We were a family of three, 2 adults and one 6 year old. The sofa which was very confortable was made for our 6 year old which he loved. Here are the pros & cons:
Pros: Rooms - Modern, clean, spacious, confortable rooms. All rooms have wood floors and a balcony.
Location - You really cannot beat this location. You have Recoleta cemetary dead in front of the hotel, within walking distance to many restaurants, pizzerias, bars, malls, etc.....and centrally located to go to and fro to anyplace in BA in taxi.
Staff - All received you with a sincere smile and willingness to go the extra mile to meet your needs.
Cons: It may be a little pricier than others, but I believe worth the cost for the quality of your stay.
That would really be the only negative....but something one has to determine. FYI, the construction noise a few people mentioned earlier was once an issue I am sure, but now they are in construction phase as opposed to demolition of the building so I do not think it will be an issue....atleast it wasn't for us.
NOTE: Try to arrive on a Sunday and take advantage of the feria de Plaza Francia which is the park within a 2 minute walk from the hotel....great people watching and entertaining. They have this "street fair" also in San Telmo and different central plazas or parks in the city.
