“great location; great choices for breakfast”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

The hotel is located a short 3 block walk to the cemetery, the Bellas Artes Museum, and the hop-on bus depot. Breakfast, included in the room price, was great. LOTS of choices: fresh fruits, breads, eggs, bacon, crepes and more in a lovely room. I liked the hot milk to add to my coffee. A nice touch. Our executive room, 305, had a balcony. The large bathroom came with most amenities but the shower "door" did not prevent the water from going on the floor...a mop-up job needed after every shower! BUT plenty of hot water from the rain-shower feature. The street noise was fine; the barking dog on his balcony across the street was funny - he started around 5:00 and continued until about 9:00 (observed over several days) We wondered if the people ever took that Airdale for a walk!!
The hotel staff was terrific; made local calls for us, spoke very good English, and greeted us as old friends every time we came back in.
The Italian restaurant in the hotel was very expensive. We did not eat there, only checked the prices.

Very good location in one of the best neighborhoods in BA, rooms reminded me of a Paris hotel, although a bit dated. Staff was very helpful, room quite nice, breakfast plentyful and more than sufficient. Best of all the price very reasonable for the area and quality.

BA is a strikingly beautiful city with fabulous older architecture, you can sense the county has had some serious issues over several decades however the people are nice and there is a now a fruther sense much of that is behind them. If BA was in Europe it would be one of the top destinations there

Room Tip: took a streetside room, no problem with noise

The rooms are a good size but not enough clothes hangers. Room service menu is sandwiches only. Very poor
The breakfast is good and varied but only 2 staff running the breakfast room.
The staff speak good English which helped

The rooms are smaller than one would expect, Now one must realise where they are coming from to know if they are to stay at this particular hotel. If you have large bags stay away however if the city is the only place you are visiting then go ahead, it has a great Italian Restaurant that makes the best risotto, The reception staff and overall hotel environment is great and is good.

All in all Small rooms, Great staff and great service.

This hotel is in a great location and the price is fair but the rooms are rather tired and have many defects, including dents in walls and scratches everywhere. The toiletries provided at of high standard and the breakfast is very good. The reception staff were exceptionally helpful and professional, although the door security personnel were rather off putting. As previous reviewers have stated, there is just something lacking here but you are likely to be out all day so dont worry.

Visiting as part of a Wine Tour, and visit to Buenos Aires to round up a very informative tour of the Wineries in Argentina and Chile... Reception in chaos as the group arrived, electronic key system down, given metal keys with coloured plastic tags, and no help with luggage...
Room quite small, bathroom dated, and stain on the carpet...
Great location to explore the city, and great night out at the Cafe de los Angelinos...
No breakfast as we left early hour of the morning to catch plane back to Mendoza...

For a stay in the expensive Recoleta, this hotel was a find. It provided a good comfort for a reasonable price.
Location couldn't be the best: heart of Recoleta, really close to everything you need: restaurants, supermarket, drugstore, bank, mall, etc.
My room was spacious and silent (junior suite), shower quality was above average. The hotel seemed clean and has been recently renovated. Breakfast was fine and included in the rate (wifi too). Staff was kind, but not pampering. Overall it was a good stay. Of course there were a couple downsides: the bathroom would get soaked after I took showers no matter what, and the maids were not the fastest, but they did clean well. Know what you are getting: don't expect a 5 star stay, but for the price you pay, it is great.

Room Tip: I chose a junior suite in the hotel website, for just like 20 bucks more per night and it paid off...
