“Comfortable choice in Buenos Aires”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013

Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and found it very comfortable. Rooms were spacious, staff was friendly and the location is very good (not exactly in the very heart of Recoleta, as you might think reading the other reviews, but at a walking distance from it). On the downside, the tub was not very clean on the first day and there was a little bit of cigarette smell coming from the ventilation, though the floor was non-smoking. But overall it is a very good cost x benefit relation, would stay here again.

Room Tip: Choose a room facing the back of the hotel, they are more quiet.

Great location, good services, clean rooms, easy access to really good restaurants, shopping, points of interest and public transportation. They have transportation available to the airport Ezeiza for $250 pesos.

Location - good - a few blocks from the Recoleta cemetery which is a must-see. In a safe part of buenos aires. Felt safe to walk outside in the evening with my husband.
Service - we arrived earlier than planned. Reception welcomed us as we came in the door and upgraded our room and presented us with two drink vouchers from their bar. Bartender helped us find a specific type of restaurant that we were looking for. Both reception and bartender spoke great english and were extremely helpful. US cash could be exchanged at reception for pesos.
Breakfast - included in the price and was good - fresh fruit, yogurt, pastries, tea/coffee/cocoa/juices, toast...no hot foods though.
Internet - worked well in the rooms!
Coffee maker in room although you are charged for the coffee that you use. Snacks and drinks also available in the room for a fee.
Room was very clean as was the rest of the hotel that we used/saw. Bed was very comfortable, but we could hear people in the room next door. Room was spacious and comfortable. Bathroom had separate sink area. Shower had rainfall shower head - no issues with hot water or water pressure.
We had a late flight out and hotel provided secure storage area which I felt very comfortable with.
We would stay here again.
Did not use the spa or fitness area although it looked clean and well maintained.

Forget about the people who have had issues with construction nearby. There is little of that happening at times that would matter. This is a very good location. A clean and well run place. The breakfasts are just fine and the prices are reasonable.

After a week in an apartment in BA and much walking in every area of town, we were extremely pleased to find our reservations here yielded such a wonderful property. Breakfast is included and they also have a small bar, coffe and espresso (besides the coffee or tea you can make in your room) and room service is available. Within less than 1-3 blocks walking distance to lots of food choices. excellant Recoleta location.

We went in oct 2012 and they were doing renovations in the building next door. We asked for a new room the next day as far away from the construction as possible and they accommodated without any fuss. They moved our luggage to the new room when it was ready for checkin so we didn't have to bother with doing that. We could still hear the noise but it wasn't as loud and it was more bearable. The breakfast was a bit on the scarce side. Not much variety. You can ask for fresh made eggs either scrabbled or fried. The service at the front desk is extremely hospitable. The location is great since it is only one block from the beach. And the neighborhood was really safe to walk around at night. They also had a spa but we never used it. They also gave us vouchers for a complimentary drink but we never used it.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the construction.

The hotel has big rooms with big beds and very good shower. The location is not so good because we took a taxi to go to the most part of places but this wasn't a problem and not expensive. The bar offer us good drinks and the food inside the restaurants was good. Perfect to couple.
