Hotel Club Frances

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 29, 2013

This elegant palace opened as the French Club of Buenos Aires in 1966. It is palatial, maintaining all the glory of its illustrious past.

The staff is warm and helpful, the premises are magnificent, and the lobby bar and restaurant a very reasonable discreet meeting place in Recoleta.

What a gem. Hotel is on par with Hotel Alvear at half the price. It is in fact a new hotel built over the the former Club Francais while preserving many architectual features from the club. The rooms are more than spacious with modern French furniture and accessories.

Literally two blocks from Recoleta cemetery and walking distance to three museums.
The food is excellent and breakfast is cooked to order. Christina and the staff could not have been more helpful in making reservations for us for dinner, shows and making our stay enjoyable. You're treated as guests and not a number. Cannot recommend more highly.

Centrally located in Recoleta. Every staff member was service oriented from check-in to Check out. Bar and Restaurant made our 3 day stay convenient. Cabs easy to get. Main lobby area easy to congregate.out group of 10 travelers enjoyed the style and service provided. Easy walking distance to shops and nearby restaurants and major historic venues.

If you are looking for a beautiful oasis in the heart of Recoleta, Hotel Club Frances is the place to stay. We were treated like family by the general manager, Christina. The hotel rooms were large, comfortable and clean. To start our days, we had hearty breakfasts and at night the restaurant provided us with fine dining (the tenderloin steak and creme brulee were amazing). Most importantly, the staff were extremely warm, helpful and friendly. We highly recommend this hotel and would return in a heartbeat.

We felt like special guests at the Club Frances. The staff welcomed us every time we saw them. Our rooms were beautifully appointed and always cleaned on time. Breakfast, included, came in several courses off a long menu of choices. We travel with small groups and each person thought this hotel among the very best of our cross continental journey.

We knew Recoleta would be a nice area to stay in, but we did not know how nice our hotel would be! The location is the best, the lobby, bar and dining area are old world beautiful and our room was very spacious and lovely! Breakfast was delicious eveyr morning. Glass of wine in the evening! Daniel, Christine, and Rosario, along with all the staff, were extremely helpful and courteous at all times. They helped us with direfctions, reservations, and city information. We strongly encourage others to stay here. Its a very BA personal experience in a smaller luxury hotel. You can't get that attention at the Four Seasons or the Park Hyatt!

We stayed at Club Frances for three nights and were very well taken care of. The hotel is in the high end district of Ricoleta with many high end shops and restaurants within a close walk. The general manager, Christina, went to great lengths to make sure our stay was higher than our expectations. We were given advise on where to go to a Tango show, where to shop and where to eat and anything else we could ask for. The room was newly remodeled and was very nice with a very comfortable bed, high end fixtures. The staff went out of their way to make sure everything was well taken care of. If we find ourselves going to BA again, we would definitely stay there again.
