A 3-star property, this is a nice hotel within walking distance of some pretty neat places that your guidebook will suggest you hit. The staff are very friendly but in that reserved way that seems typical of Buenos Aires. Deborah and Majeda were very helpful at all times, as were the rest of the staff, especially the breakfast and bar crew. It is in need of some refurbishment so if chipped paint and aged linen aren't your thing, be warned, but this is a management/owner issue and I wouldn't fault the staff for it. The breakfast spread is the same every day (though the pastries do vary), and was never so crowded that you couldn't get a table. They do arrange for transportation to/from the airport, considerably cheaper and in a more comfortable car than what Ezeiza will charge you.
The location and price plus service is what makes it a great hotel. You are close to some excellent dining opportunities, all within 5-115 minutes on foot. Need money exchanged? There is a Mall beside the Recoleta cemetery (Eva Peron is interred here, of course) and the top-most floor has a cambio. Need a grocery store or a pharmacy? Carrefour is a 10 minute walk from the hotel. The Holocaust Museum is in the neighborhood as well, not to mention a beautiful park with benches 2 minutes from the hotel; exit left, walk 50 paces, and there you have it!More
