My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights on our honeymoon, at the end of a tour around Argentina. We definitely saved the best hotel for last!
We stayed in a superior suite, and what an experience we had. The room was modern, spacious and clean, with a super-comfortable king-size bed -- definitely what we needed to recover after a truly horrible experience flying with Aerolineas Argentineas and their rude and nasty staff. The room and hotel have a great ambience, so you feel like you are staying at a 5* hotel but with the personal service and character that comes from a boutique hotel.
The reception staff were friendly and helpful, providing us with maps and tips for getting the most out of our time in BA, making restaurant reservations, etc.
The breakfast was simply fantastic. They bring out in mini-courses a simple yet delicious breakfast -- fresh orange juice, tea/coffee, fresh croissants, perfectly whisked yoghurt, fresh fruit, and eggs made however you want them (I chose omelette -- it was made perfectly). This was a real treat. We didn't sample the bar/restaurant beyond enjoying the complementary glasses of wine -- which was really good stuff -- but the menu looked nice and we heard nothing but rave reviews about how good the food is there (it was fully booked for the whole weekend, which is as good an indicator as any!).
Location is good, a 10 minute stroll to the metro (about 20 mins downtown from there), the parks of Palermo or Palermo Viejo (where most of the restaurants and bars around this funky barrio are to be found).
Overall, a great experience, we would definitely stay here again as and when we return to BA. The only thing we felt they could do better on is delivering their excellent service more quickly at times when guests are in a hurry. On the day were due to leave, we had to 'remind' the waitress at breakfast -- who seemed to be serving the whole room on her own -- quite a few times to bring us our food so we could enjoy the morning before heading off to the airport. We got a few stressed looks, and it took 45 minutes to get through breakfast at a push. The reception was also manned by one person at checkout time, so we had a good 20 minute wait after this.
