“Very good location, nice and friendly staff”
Reviewed December 26, 2013

We stayed in this hotel for our last night after a long journey in Argentina, as we found a good online offer. The hotel is very nice, the room we had with a cemetary view was very spacious, modern furnishing and very clean. The bathroom was larger than what you usually find in city hotels. We had a good internet connection in our room.
The friendly and attentive staff spoke English very well and was very good in recommending restaurants.
The lift is very slow and could need some improvements.
Breakfast buffet was very good and fresh.
We enjoyed the central location of the hotel in upper class Recoleta and the proximity to everything a tourist would need. We would stay in this hotel again for a short-time visit to Buenos Aires (for longer periods, we prefer a rental however).

The staff are extremely friendly and helpful, they are the definite highlight. The pool area is nice, however the bar upstairs is generally empty from staff. The rooms are poor - the carpets are AWFUL, so stained and filthy. Bathrooms old. Wireless internet terribly slow.

Etoile Hotel is the perfect place to stay in Buenos Aires. It is located next door to the recoleta cemetery and is in a very nice and safe neighborhood. There were many restaurants with patio eating, bars, clubs, and parks all within a few minute walking distance. I arrived at the hotel early in the morning expecting to just leave my luggage and do tourist things before the check in time. However, the hotel was able to get me my room early. My room was clean, spacious, and comfortable. The staff were friendly, helpful, and spoke great English. There was a little mini bar and my room had a small balcony. The bed was comfortable and the free WiFi worked great. The included breakfast included both hot and cold items. Pretty much the same breakfast you get at any decent hotel. If you want to take the "hop on hop off" tourist bus around the city, there is a bus stop and ticket booth right on the corner about a minute walk from the hotel. I would absolutely stay here again!

If you are looking for a quiet location, this is your place. Located in front of Recoleta cemetery, this 4 star hotel is very popular, busy and often fully booked. Nice area; cafes, restaurants, bars, shopping mall and Recoleta streets to explore.

Rooms are in pretty good condition, large and at least some have balconies with great city/cemetery views. Free Wi-Fi in rooms, but the signal is limited and works best near the door.

Nice rooftop pool, sauna, gym.

Hot buffett breakfast.

Location is great after you take the hour long ride from the airport. The rooms were alright, not a 5 star by any means but the views were to die for. Quick trips to Palermo and Recolleta were a breeze. The park in front of the hotel had great weekend vendor tents where we picked through them like a garage sale. The restaurants all around the hotel are fantastic. Spanish skills should be well polished, we didn't find many folks that comprende Englese. The San Telmo swap meet is a long cab ride but one of the most interesting places I have ever been. They sell everything, even Gypsy Tears. :-)

Room Tip: Ask for a room as high up as possible because the views are amazing over the park.

This a great hotel, excellent location close to Recoleta Cementery, shops and great resturants. Recoleta is a upmarket area so felt really safe walking around at night also the hotels location on the edge of a square meant it was also surprising peaceful.
The Hotel has a really nice rooftop swimming pool and spa area. There was a roof top bar with amazing views of the city however although it looked like it was open there was never anyone behind the bar. As a result it was also empty and completely lacking in atomosphere - such a waste. The rooms were Ok but a little dated. Service was only OK nothing special , Reception staff were friendly enough but one we were ignored most of the time.(actually this seemed to be in case in a lot of places we went)

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the front for amazing views.

This hotel is located very well. The area is one of the safest in the city, the famous grave yard is very close and there´s lots of restaurants and bars at walking distance.

Seems that hotel has been very nice some decades ago but unfortunately not so fancy nowadays. Anyway, rooms are large & clean & peaceful & reasonably priced => a good bargain altoghter!
