“Good Bang for your Buck”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2009

Good hotels can be pricey in BA. This one is a god value. Very clean, good English spoken and very friendly. Really good location. Breakfast buffet is only decent, at best, but you should be going out for great coffee and medialunas anyway...

2 years ago; I wrote a review rating the hotel as 3 stars and not 4 stars. Now, after this second stay I am rating the hotel as 4 stars. The reception staff is very friendly and make you feel at home. The (included) breakfast buffet is quite good with nice croisants (medias lunas), nice breads, butter, jams, cheese, hard eggs, fruits and fruit salad. The waitresses in the breakfast room are very friendly too. We had a very nice suite with 2 rooms (a double and a single) and a bath with all the amenities.The best thing of this hotel is its great location in Calle Libertad between Avenida Santa Fe and Calle Arenales. Great shopping is just a block away at Avenida Santa Fe or at the Recoleta neigfhbourhood between Calle Quintana and Calle Posadas. You also have great shopping in Buenos Aires at calle Florida (Galerias Pacifico).
Now, I would lile to recommend you nice places to eat:
La Brigada, Calle Peña, Recoleta. Great meats dont miss the entraña or Bife de Chorizo.
La Caballeriza, Puerto Madero. Great meats.
Moliere, Calle Juncal, Recoleta. A nice bistro with a daily prix fixe menu.
Itamae Sushi, Puerto Madero. Geat sushi. Dont miss the Buenos Aires roll.

Although Buenos Aires is more expensive than 2 years ago, still eating and shopping there is cheap by international standards.
Leather goods are of extraordinary quality with great designs.

I did like the hotel. I may be a little biased because I got the master suite w/balcony, which means that my room was one of the biggest and had a view.
Pluses: The location is great! Located in Microcentro, you can take cheap cabs to everywhere because the hotel is in the center of the city. Also, you can walk places because the major avenue Santa Fe is only two blocks away. They clean rooms twice a day.
Minuses: The service is not extraordinary, I had an issue with calling a cab and the concierge didn’t really help. Also, I needed to iron two shirts, but couldn’t do it because the concierge told me that they had already closed the laundry.
Overall: I think the hotel met my expectations but didn’t exceed them.
