We recently stayed at Hotel Club Frances and we were so thrilled that we did! It is a beautiful, classic, charming place with beyond helpful employees! The rooms and main areas are bursting with incredible French pieces. It is on a quiet, leafy street and very close to many tourist attractions, wonderful restaurants and some great shopping. The entire hotel was spotlessly clean at all times. Anna and Sophie and really everyone else went above and beyond on everything. They arranged boat excursions, drivers, dinner reservations, literally whatever we asked. One night we asked if we could get a box to box up a chair that we purchased and we got back from dinner and it was done and in our room ready to board the plane. Everyone that worked here was so warm and although we speak minimal Spanish, they would always find someone to help translate if they didn't speak English themselves. Many of them spoke wonderful English too. We cannot wait to return to this beautiful city and this lovely hotel!! Thanks to all of you there!

We could not have been more pleased with a recent stay at Hotel Club Francis, and a big reason is the outstanding work by Elio at the front desk. We have traveled widely, and I can say Elio is a treasure -- providing a warm helpful arrival, making useful touring and dining recommendations and giving clear directions. If you have an issue to be dealt with, no problem -- Elio is there to make things work flawlessly. Our suite was HUGE and very comfortable, the bed, like the room, most comfortable; and a cavernous bathroom with even a private sauna The included breakfast is complete and served in the very attractive winter garden. We felt extremely safe walking around the surrounding area, either by day or night. Thank you Elio and thank you Hotel Club Francis for a delightful stay -- highly recommended.

Loved this boutique hotel! Elio was supberb, assisting us with early arrival, dinner reservations, and all our questions. Clean, spacious & quiet room with very comfortable bed and towels. Just made our last night in Buenos Aires memorable.

This is a charming elegant hotel in the quiet part of Recoleta, but is within walking distance to many tourist attractions. The room was clean and big. We had a red-eye flight out of BA and they offered us a half-day rate for staying past checkout time so that we could still tour the city on the day of departure, come back and take a shower before heading to the airport. I would not recommend the restaurant and bar at the hotel, as the menu was somewhat limited and it took forever to get anything at the bar. Still, the hotel is excellent in our opinion,

Entrance and reception were a welcomer step back from the super-chic of modern Hotels, Staff were extremely helpful and happy to arrange my wife's wish to see a tango performance. Our luxury suite was a delight, huge, with a king bed and equally large bathroom with sauna - sadly I did not get to test it. Street noise was non-existent and this, coupled with the very comfortable bed ensured a restful sleep, most welcome after the chaos of arrival at Ezeiza. The in-house French restaurant is a good fall-back if dining out in one of the many nearby eateries does not suit and the Recoleta area has much to offer in sightseeing and shopping.

This small boutique hotel reflects the upscale location. Very nice, clean well equipped bedrooms but the hotel restaurant is the real reason to stay here. Lavish breakfast buffet plus any special orders you give. Really equisite, classic French cooking for lunch and dinner. Excellent service. Reasonable rates for hotel & restaurant. Attentive front desk. Forget any food at the bar. Service lagging. Stick to the dining room and iif you reserve, ask for the solarium or "winter garden"........totally attractive surroundings. Have favored this place for 3 years and never disappointed. English translation menus.

The hotel is a very nice building but poorly mantained. Wifi never worked, I had to use my 4G. When I approached the desk, I was mistreated by the employee, which never took care of my problems. I felt like I was disturbing the busy atmosphere. Never going back, total trash

We were a group of 4 stopping over in BA for our annual dove hunting trip. This is the 3rd time we have stayed at the Hotel Club Frances in as many years and continue to be impressed with the quality of the hotel and the professionalism of their staff. The staff at the front desk, in the bar, in the restaurant and in housekeeping were all very pleasant and helpful. Their small bar was well-stocked and priced reasonably for the area. Although we did not eat dinner at their restaurant, we did enjoy a nice breakfast. All of the food was fresh and well-presented. The coffee was excellent. Our rooms were very nicely appointed and spotlessly clean. For sightseeing, the hotel is located very near the Recoleta Cemetary. Highly recommend.

We recently spent 5 nights in this beautiful, historic hotel very well located in Ricoleta, which is a very elegant section of the city. When people compare Buenos Aires to Paris, this is the section that most resembles Parisian architecture. The hotel has a fascinating history and is very well maintained. Our room, on the 6th floor, was large and very quiet. The shower was amazing - I could have taken several a day - and there was plenty of room in the bathroom for all of our toiletries. The air conditioner worked very well. Everyone at the hotel was helpful and knowledgeable. They had a number of excellent restaurants to recommend - all within walking distance of the hotel. One of the staff - I think he said he name was Alan - was especially helpful in suggesting some over-the counter medication to take for a backache that I developed there (his wife is a nurse). Dont forget to pick up a map and a guide at the reception desk - especially if you plan on walking around. My only slightly negative comment would be the lack of variety of the buffet breakfasts. You could order omelettes or fried eggs, both of which were excellent, but the cold items were less varied and interesting than breakfasts at some of the other hotels we stayed at on our trip to South America. However, considering how much we loved the hotel, this was a very minor issue for us and we would certainly stay there again.
