“Home in Buenos Aires”
Reviewed December 8, 2013

I just returned from BA after I spent almost 3 weeks in Patagonia. I have started and finished the trip in BA staying in Duque hotel. I have to start saying that I did pick up the hotel very much based on TA reviews. Not surprisingly, I am another one who says "bravo" to the hotel's staff. Because as many other reviewers said, this is what makes the difference. Absolutely fantastic staff! Nothing was a problem. Lots of suggestions and ideas, every question answered….The hotel is perfectly located in Palermo Soho with plenty of restaurants and bars just around the corner. One may think it is disadvantage to stay outside of the microcentro. Not really. I have even walked from the hotel to Puerto Madero and to Recoleta. Yes, it is a walk. But nothing matched walking streets of BA covered with beautiful trees seeing all the various parts of the city. The staff has recommended Don Julio restaurant only few blocks from the hotel. What a tip! It matched easily the best "parilla" (at least by books) in the city called Las Lillas (Puerto Madero) which I tried as well (again, booking was made by the hotel's staff. I was returning to Duque from Patagonia and it was like returning home. So, clearly, if I ever get back to BA (and I am sure I will return) I will not search for any other place. Many thanks to all staff at the reception. And big thank you to the manager of the hotel who sent me to the right place in the city to buy Lagomarsino hat.

From the moment we saw the Duque from the taxi we knew that we loved it. We were not disappointed. The staff were amazing, the rooms were comfortable, the breakfast was great, the coffee was always available. We swam in the pool, & luxuriated in the spa, & the shower by the spa was amazing. Lift access from the spa was great as you could go straight to your room without having to go through the public area. The housekeepers were just great, looking after our rooms with care. I particularly liked the RED & WHITE décor all through the hotel, & what topped the whole experience for me was my first ever experience of a hummingbird which visited the (décor appropriate) RED salvia in the garden every morning & evening as we sat in the garden with our coffee or wine. A memorable stay all round. Thank you to all who gave us this wonderful experience,

My wife and I stayed at the Duque Hotel from in November 2013 for four nights (a 3 night stay followed by a 1 night stay). It was excellent - now one of our favorite hotels in the world. The best part is the friendly and helpful staff. The front desk - Roberto, Raquel and Carlos in particular - were very accommodating - helping us checkin/checkout, with dinner reservations, and welcoming us back to the hotel upon each return from a daily activity or dinner. Other highlights include the location (convenient to Palermo, walking distance to Santa Fe, and just a short cab ride away to Recoleta) and the common area. The breakfast room and particularly the garden in the rear of the hotel are a great place to decompress and relax - get a coffee any time of the day from the coffee machine (or a drink in the evening), sit on the comfortable lounge furniture in the garden, and plan the rest of the day or just let your mind wander.

We stayed in a deluxe room which sits at the front of the hotel - has a small balcony with french doors, and is very generous on space.

We cannot wait to go back!

We stayed at Duque for 3 nights at the end of our 2.5 week trip in Argentina. In terms of amenities and modern comforts, this place was the best, if that's what you're looking for. The wifi worked really well, the rooms were all super clean, AC worked great, breakfast was tasty, and the hotel in general looked well taken care of. We didn't use it, but they also have a spa available for guest use. It's in a great convenient location only 4 blocks away from the subway, and surround by great restaurants in Palermo. It's also extremely secure with full-time staff, a locked front door, security cameras, etc. The staff was extremely friendly and they were very patient with my broken spanish (although the front desk staff are fluent in English).

The Duque is a very nice hotel. The staff is excellent with many good suggestions for dining options, touring ideas and just overall welcoming. The hotel and rooms are very clean and nicely appointed. The lobby area is roomy with two computers a nice sitting area. The breakfast room is light and airing opening up to a nice outdoor patio. The breakfast is very good with a nice variety of food including cook to order eggs if you desire. Many dining options in the area and the Holy Spirit Catholic Church is just a few blocks away. The D line subway is a 10-15 minute walk away. We were impressed with how well the subway system worked compared to some of its substandard US counterparts. The hotel will arrange a taxi from the airport in advance which worked flawlessly for around $40 US.
Eva, Raquel, and Roberto are a gold standard staff

Room Tip: The street side room can be a bit noisy but did not bother us

We enjoyed our stay at the Duque Hotel and very much appreciate the help we received from Raquel, Eva and Roberto. They were very knowledgeable and helpful, especially Raquel.
Very good wifi, great breakfast and a clean, comfortable room with king size bed and a good shower. What else can you need? Oh, yes, a jacuzzi in the basement with a patio and small pool in the back yard.

It's about 4 blocks to the Subte (subway) D line. We made very good use of the Subte, saw the major sights and enjoyed BA.

Wonderful, friendly staff. Extremely helpful. The amenities are very nice: great breakfast, with choice of eggs, ham, cheeses, juice, breads, fruits. Nice coffee machine to make custom coffee. Rooms are clean, with good water pressure and hot water. Small pool in the back. The staff were the best we've experienced in a long time!
