We stayed here for three nights in late April. Algodon is a lovely boutique hotel in the upscale Recoleta district, close to shopping, great restaurants and within walking distance of the famous Recoleta Cemetery.It is located on a side street, and although somewhat noisy early in the morning, is actually reasonably quiet after the rush hour.
We were given the largest suite, absolutely outstanding, with its own wine bar, separate dining area, and livig room with an amazing fireplace.The reception staff were friendly and attentive, particularly Martin and Soledad who graciously took care of every request.
On a negative note, breakfast was a little disappointing( it was included in the room rate). No full American breakfast here, nor a buffet style breakfast. Even the continental breakfast with fruits, yogurt and toast/pastry grew tiresome by the fourth morning!!
Also, we found the housekeeping service incredibly disappointing. On two occasions we had to call to have the room cleaned ( this was at 4 in the afternoon!). Amenities were not replaced/ restocked to the point where I had to use a plastic bag because the shower cap I'd used the day before had been taken and not replaced.
The rooftop pool was tiny, as was the adjacent seating area.
Despite these minor inconveniences, the hotel and staff were amazing and I will definitely stay at Algodon on our next visit to Buenos Aires.
