Impressive views and high quality rooms with friendly and helpful staff. 24 hour breakfast was a nice touch. Good location too - walking distance to some of the key sites and shopping areas. Worth the money!

This hotel is located in the city-end of Recoleta (not the quiet, leafy, beautiful side). The hotel itself is ok, simple, modern and comfortable. Don't expect anything amazing or impressive, and don;t expect to be in the best part of Recoleta.

Hotel staff at boutique Design CE Hotel were very accommodating and friendly. WiFi was spotty. Breakfast was continental and limited, but just fine.

Good hotel to relax in the heart of Recoleta, and close to some of the best bars like Notorious, Milion and Danzon. The staff makes you feel like at home. The Breakfast is simples but with very good breds, fruits and yougourt.

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.
