First, for those not sure where to stay in Buenos Aires (as I was), Recoleta is your best bet. Buenos Aires is a big city. So you use the taxi a lot to get to other areas. Staying in Recoleta is an upscale neighborhood. You have everything you need in easy walking distance (bank, restaurants, pharmacy, grocery, mall, etc). And if you are in Recoleta, I highly recommend this hotel. I paid $125 a night on a pre-pay basis for what was a huge suite. (at the hotel I noticed the little sign with their rates at the front desk and this seemed to be the normal [price anyway). From the website, it appears I got the superior suite. The photos on the website are very accurate as to the design and quality of the accommodations. Our room was great. Essentially three separate areas in a row. Mini kitchen with table for 6, couch and sitting area, and bed area. Bed was very comfortable. Everything was new and clean. Bathroom was big with giant walk in shower. You can certainly pay several times the price for a luxury small room at say the Hyatt, but why? By comparison, one night on our trip in another city we spent over $500 a night at a luxury hotel...and my wife and i still felt the Urban Suite was the best choice on our trip insofar as accommodations went, not to mention price (the luxury hotel certainly had more amenities but as for the room itself, Urban Suites hands down) . Buffet was about the same as we had at most hotels during our trip. Staff was friendly and helpful. The hotel is in a perfect location, just across from the Recoleta Cemetery. There are plenty of restaurants, banks, stores, etc nearby. San Telmo they say is where all the night life is, and we did go to dinner there one night, but I would still say stay in Recoleta as there is much more available. you can always take the taxi to San Telmo for the evening. A family member was living in Buenos Aries for a few months and told me we were in a great location as well.
