We just came back from Argentina, where we spend 4 nights in Buenos aires at the Palacio Duhau. There are 2 parts to this hotel, 17 floors Tower on one side and 4 floor Palacio on the Alveolar side, separated by beautiful courtyard. From previous reviews I requested a room in Palacio part of the Hotel and was not disappointed. We did not get our high floor, like I requested, because by the time we arrived, all rooms were already occupied. We were in room # 201, second floor, last room on the right side overlooking the courtyard, but our view was partially covered by trees.
Just out of curiosity we asked to see room in the Tower. We were shown modern, corner room on 17th floor with expansive views, unfortunately of dirty city and rooftops. We went back to our Palacio room.
Our room was huge, very beautifully appointed, with big closet, little hallway and huge, beautiful bathroom with shower and bathtub. Very classy, quiet room, overlooking the courtyard and Tower on the other side. We had very comfortable 2 beds, flat screen TV with plenty of channels, great daily maid service and above all quiet in this very busy, noisy city.
We ate breakfast in Le Biella cafe, 10 min walk towards Recolletta Cemetery. We ate dinner once in the Hotel's famous steak restaurant, but were not impressed and would not recommend. Service was slow and meal was very salty, very average.
We used spa with indoor lap pool almost every day. It is not the best spa,it is small, has few exercise machines, whirpool, sauna and nobody in it.
Buenos Aires hop on hop off bus stops on the opposite side of Palacio Duhau on Alveolar St. There is not a official stop marked, but trust me it does stop. You MUST buy your tickets for the bus on line during rush hours, otherwise you will not get on! Even though bus seems empty, but they will not let you on unless you have a ticket. We missed 2 busses and waited 40 min. Front desk staff will tell you, that you can buy your ticket on the bus, true, but only in off hours.
By the way, front desk for Palacio is on the Palacio side. Very convenient. You also have your own private elevator. There is a little gallery on the lower floor connecting Tower with Palacio, but we rather walked thru the courtyard to our room.
Hotel is far away from city center and you will need taxi to get anywhere. Taxis are cheap and readily available.
Highly recommend rooms at Palacio side, ask for higher floor, not 4th floor, because there is a balcony in front and you cannot have a view of courtyard and of course courtyard view.
