What a great find in Recoleta! It has a lot of old world charm with the furnishings and quite historic as well (the old French Gents club). Great location, great staff, great rooms and great value. We had a corner room, which was huge and very comfortable with the Egyptian cotton sheets, and double sinks, rainshower in the bathroom. Federico was our super friendly server at breakfast, and he brought you anything you wanted from a made to order menu. We got to like him so much that we would like to adopt him!

And Daniel the concierge was also super helpful. He's very knowledgeable about currency rates (always a challenge in Buenos Aires!), and the best restaurants, and entertainment. Can't say enough about what a great guy he is. (Note to management here... Daniel is worth his weight in gold). We've done a lot of travelling around the world, and he has been by far one of the best concierges we've ever met. A pleasure and a treasure.

Gracias to all for a great stay.

This magnificent historical building has been impeccably restored and transformed into a first class modern hotel. Everyone on the staff (from doorman, to the front desk and dining room staff) deserve a five star rating. Our room was very spacious, comfortable, and beautifully appointed. The breakfasts were the best we had on our whole trip and the delicious dinner we had in their restaurant on our last night in BA exceeded our expectations. Cristina, the general manager, is special and made us feel like family. We absolutely would love to return for an even longer stay.

1/2 the cost of local rival hotels with beautiful lobby, bar, dining room and rooms. Workout room a little lacking but we were walking, riding or exploring every day anyway. Recoleta is the area to stay for foreign visitors. It is very safe. Not so much elsewhere. My dad had his watch ripped off his wrist in front of teatro colon 10 am on a Sunday morning. Do not go out with flashy jewelry or flash cash; you are asking for trouble. I loved buenos aires. Do the bike tour. I like the hop on hop off bus but my parents did not (they are 75 and it was about 85 F in January.

Dear John, thank you very much for your positive review! Unfortunately these kind of robberies happen all the time on the streets near 9 de Julio (the big avenue) but Recoleta is definitely a safe neighborhood.

My husband and I stayed here for three nights, including New Year's Eve.First time in Bs As. We could not have made a better choice. The staff were over the top...best breakfast ever!!! Frederick was delightful! Nicholas was so wonderful and accommodating. At the last minute, housekeeping even pressed my husband's tuxedo.
Thank you Christina for being such a gracious host. The hotel itself is unbelievably beautiful and quiet, the area great for walking and shopping.
On another note..travelers be aware, not all boutique hotels are vetted. We booked another 'boutique hotel' which seemed wonderful on the website...we were horrified when we arrived and stayed one night. ' Amazingly enough, the price was comparable to Club Francis but it was a different world.

Dear Bonnielstack , thank you very much for your great review! The term Boutique Hotels has become a bit overused in some places. You were so much fun to have around always working your way on the Spanish language and eager to learn more. We hope to see you back soon!

My wife and I had our first trip to Buenos Aires on Christmas, and stayed 4 days at Hotel Club Frances, based on its TripAdvisor reviews. Those reviews did not point us wrong. Hotel Club Frances was the anchor of our stay in more ways than one - we were offered a lovely room, and Maria Cristina Stegmann, Andrea, Daniel, Walter (I hope I'm remembering names correctly) were immensely gracious in making sure that everything was right over the length of our stay. Very hot in Buenos Aires at the time (high 90's/100 F), and the hotel was perfectly located to the things we wanted to see, a cool oasis to relax in, and because of the kindness of our hosts, simply felt very comfortable to "come home to" during our stay. They have our deep appreciation for making this a successful first visit to Argentina.
