We enjoyed all aspects of this hotel. The very best part was Juan Pablo and Francisco at the front desk. They helped us with dining recommendations, directions, things to do, solving a mix-up with incorrect scheduling of two tours we had booked through a travel agent, and they were always there with a smile and warm greeting. They made us...

My wife and I enjoyed 7 nights at this boutique hotel on a quiet and safe street in Recoleta. The hotel is located in an historic building where Eva Peron lived prior to her rise to fame. It is furnished in a very traditional style and has a very old world feel. The staff of the hotel were consistently attentive...

Stayed once, had nice cockroaches at the breakfast buffet downstairs in the basement. Tryp Hotel in Buenos Aires is much better value for money, this Melia, as well as the other Melia in Buenos Aires needs a good refurbishment.

The initial draw for the Melia Recoleta is, of course, Evita--she lived here when she was a local radio star. But the hotel's present has as much to offer as its past. First and foremost, the staff is incredibly helpful and friendly, even taking the time to chat about current Argentine affairs. I stayed here with my family, and the...

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.
