This small boutique hotel is very well located, in the Recoleta district, one of the finest in Buenos Aires. The rooms are modern, seem to have been recently renovated and have all necessary comfort. The concept of this chain of boutique hotels seem to be one of well appointed premises and the necessary service. If you need help with your... More

Nice hotel and excellent value close to city centre and sites. Great staff. Rooms ending in "1" are best, the other rooms can be small. Breakfast buffet was OK, small seating area but this is a small hotel.

I've always loved boutique hotels way more than big chain ones. In this case, the staff was polite and the room was nice. Wi-fi worked fine, bathtub was small indeed and the shower a little bit uncomfortable (one of those very nice looking ones but not practical,you ended up with a big mess after a long shower).

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.
