We have just spent 3 nights at this beautiful hotel and can honestly say we will miss the excellent service, the lovely reception staff and the yummy breakfasts.
From the minute we arrived they went out of their way to make our stay a good one. We were upgraded at no extra cost to a duplex room, giving us lots of space and more of a feel of being in a flat rather than a room.
They also managed to get us on a tour for the boca juniors game that evening, meaning we didnt have to spend a whole week in BA waiting for a match the following sunday.
The cleaning staff were discreet but rooms were cleaned daily to a high standard. The room itself was beautiful with high ceilings, and a winding staircase. the bed was comfortable, there was cable tv both upstairs and downstairs in the duplex, and a small fridge to keep our drinks cold. Wifi connection was available free in both the main building and in the bedrooms. There was also an adaptor plug already in the room so we didnt have to fight over who was charging what first!
The hotel staff are great for tips on what to see and where to eat, and were kind enough to order us a pizza one evening when we asked.
Breakfast each morning was included and was more than enough for both of us. It comprised of toast, toasties, pastries, hot drinks and eggs.
Staff were kind enough to grant us a late checkout until 9pm as a one off as our bus was very late on that day. We even recieved a complimentary bottle of wine on our last evening.
After advice on how to get downtown we caught the bus from literally at the end of the block straight there, and back, for less than 50p return trip. The buses ran every 2 mins so there was no long waits. The area feels safe so even when I ventured out alone one evening as a woman I didnt feel remotely threatened or worried.
There is a cheap laundrette 2 blocks down that did a crate of washing for us for less than £3.
The hotel is immaculately maintained and the level of english spoken by all staff was so good we didn't have any problems at all.
We thoroughly loved our stay in this safe and well serviced area in terms of places to eat and shop. With easy access to buses and the metro distance to the sites is not an issue for such fantastic service and lovely accomodation. It really is worth calling or emailing to make your booking as the cost is lower than on the net too.
If you are lucky enough to get the same level of service that we did then you will not regret your stay!
