I saw Casa Chic in 2011 on my first trip to Buenos Aires... It's a retail store on the first floor (very similar to Anthropologie in the U.S.) and a boutique hotel on the 2nd and 3rd floors. The overall design is very fashion forward and a luxurious hideaway in an overwhelmingly big, noisy city.
Remembering how nice the place looked, I booked our last 2 nights on a recent week long stay in the city. It certainly lived up to my expectations, aside from one night when a wedding party's noise made for a restless night... That aside, we would still go back to Casa Chic. (Details below).
- Fabulous neighborhood: shops, restaurants, bars, great architecture and design at every turn
- Luxurious king bed with great bedding (not uncommon in the states, but rare in Argentina)
- Good value
- Great interior design
- I Pod player in the room. Classical music was playing upon arrival into our room. Very inviting!
- Great A/C and heat with in-room controls rather than a master control
- All lighting on dimmers
- Excellent staff. Very professional!
- Argentines like to party until the wee hours of the morning, so beware of street noise in the front rooms
- A wedding party in the hotel had music blasting and loud guests until the sun came up on our last night. When the A/C was on, it drowned-out the noise, but when it was off, we were miserable from lack of sleep. The receptionist later said that we could have set the thermostat to "ON" so the fan would never turn off and would have drowned-out the noise the entire night.... Oh well. Lesson learned. She also graciously gave us a nice parting gift to make up for the unfortunate experience.
- Rooms are a little cramped, but still enjoyable none-the-less
