“Absolutely perfect!”
Reviewed July 9, 2011

CeDesign was the highlight of out family's trip to South America. Our young adult children squealed with delight when they saw the room and for four nights it was a great respite after some of the other places we had stayed. The staff was friendly and contrary to a few other comments, we thought the location was perfect-assuming you want to see various parts of the city and not just hang out in Recoleta. Finally, finding rooms for a family of four is not easy. The Balcony Room we had was more like an apartment than a room.

I stayed here on business because the hotel is in the center of a business district where some of my customers have offices. I normally stay closer to the heart of the Recoleta, however this hotel is a very nice find. Very convenient to most any kind of restaurant, subway station, Avenida 9 de julio, everything.
The people of this hotel however really make it a nice stay. Engaging and thoughtful are two words that I would use to describe the front desk and service staff. When was the last time you called the front desk at your last hotel with let's say a weak internet connection, and then less than 5 minutes later the front desk shows up with a new router?The rooms are minimalist, but that is not to say they are lacking. The greatest and what I always look for in a room are the automatic blackout shades, which this hotel has. The bathrooms are nicely appointed and everything worked great for me. The tub/spa looked inviting, but I never have the time.
I will say that there were just a few minor details that probably won't ruin your stay, like maybe the electronic connection under the sink is open and not finished properly. But like I said, very minor details. All in all, the rooms are clean and modern, the decor and layout in the common areas are nicely contemporary, and the staff is great. I even met a client in the lobby and she even commented on how "fresh" and "very chic" the hotel felt.

I've stayed at cE Design Hotel for the past four years and love it so much I wouldn't consider another place in Buenos Aires. The staff is outstanding...friendly and gracious. Location is the best...everything within walking distance. Decor is ultra modern but very comfortable. Breakfast is served all day long which is important when we get to bed at 3AM (not an unusual occurrence when the city nightlife ends at dawn:) I hate to give away this insider secret paradise, but they deserve all the accolades they get.

I stayed for 3 days in this hotel. The staff is very friendly, but the location (near Recoleta, not in Recoleta) is not so friendly. Also, the rooms are big and modern but seems that the hotel has no soul! I think the for the price that they charge is not worth it.
Also, the in the morning the sun gets in the room, to bad if you want to sleep more in the morning.

I honestly enjoyed taking siesta while staying here because I felt so comfortable in our room. Our room was on the 4th floor (the plaza suite) and must have been about 600 square feet. It was clean and very well appointed. Nice large jet tub and rain shower, great view with electronic black out shades and a kitchenette. The location worked well for us too. We really adored some of the other neighborhoods like Palermo, Palermo Soho, Recoletta, etc. This is pretty conveniently located (just a few blocks from El Centro and a short walk to Recoletta). It was an inexpensive cab ride to get to all of the barrios we visited. We found a laundramat 2 blocks away called Lava Rap and got 2 loads of laundry done for 9USD. This is sooo inexpensive compared to what the hotel would charge and we really for some reason enjoy doing these tasks while traveling abroad. The owner of the place really made us laugh and even recommended some sparkling wine from Mendoza which we happened to love (so random!) The hotel staff was nice, the room was perfect and clean and for being in a large city it was surprisingly quiet. I really cannot complain and would recommend this hotel. It was not cheap, but the room was also a lot larger than what we normally stay in. We were on our honeymoon, so we splurged a bit. We enjoyed the parks in Palermo, the MALBA museum, the art fair on Sunday in Recoletta, shopping in San Telmo and Villa Crespo (leather district) and more. I could never get used to eating dinner at 10pm. Besides that, I really could adjust to the Porteno way of life.

Staff was the best - felt at home everytime you walked in or out. Staff was off work, leaving for the day, would not leave us until we had a cab and then refused a tip. They were the best !!

Stayed 2 nights on first trip to Buenos Aires.
Location: If I were staying 3 nights or longer, I'd probably stay either in the heart of Recoleta or in Palermo Soho, but with only 2 nights this location was perfect, as it is situated right in the middle of all the neighborhoods you'd want to visit.
Staff: Excellent. They gave us wonderful recommendations and were very thorough in providing all pertinent information.
Decor: Minimalist modern design looks good, but the quality is a little more like Ikea -- looks good from a distance, but when you get closer it's pretty shabby. Nice flatscreens with tons of cable stations (many in English) and mini fridges in room.
Breakfast: included and very good as far as continental spreads go.
Overall, this hotel was completely adequate - we spent our days out in the city and returned for a nap, then out to dinner, and back to go to bed. But if you're looking for finer quality and a place in which you'd want to spend more time relaxing and lounging, then you should go elsewhere.
