As I said in my previous review, I returned to this cozy hotel. Again I found the sane features described previously. Amazing staff, well located, clean, spacious room and affordable. I strongly recommend this hotel if you want something like a boutique atmosphere paying around US$ 120 in one of the most beautiful area in Buenos Aires. I repeated it.... More

The location is walking distance to some good restaurants and Recoleta Cemetery. The staff was extremely professional and helpful. Since it's a... More

When I entered the Hotel, the Hotel didn't give an impressive feeling but stayed for a week due to the extreme helpful nature of Staff members. Everyday breakfast is simple but a comfortable one.

Staying in Recoleta

Neighborhood Profile
Recoleta
Characterized by the French-style mansions which are the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this neighborhood is an experience like no other in Buenos Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll also find a rich cultural scene centered on the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library, and the Recoleta Cultural Center; as well as some great shopping spots, like the Buenos Aires Design Mall with an artists' fair set up in Plaza Francia every weekend.
