“Nice suites, friendly staff”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

Stayed in a large suite, with great views over the plaza. Automated blackout curtains were a nice touch. The bathroom, however, was a big problem:
1) There is a large jacuzzi, but no separate shower stall. The water poured all over when showering.
2) There is a glass wall between the bedroom and the bathroom, when using it in the middle of the night, lights went directly to my mate's face.
Staff was very friendly and location, fantastic. An average hotel.

Estimado Huesped,

Le escribo en español dado que mi portugués no es el mejor!

Antes que nada, gracias por escribir a cerca de nuestro Hotel. Me alegra que les haya gustado la vista y la ubicación, por suerte tenemos la suerte de ser privilegiados con ello.

Lamento que la modalidad del baño les haya incomodado, es una forma de tener mas espacio y no sentirse atrapado por la ducha.

Esperemos nos den otra oportunidad en una Suite para probar las otras modalidades.

Saludos y gracias,

Lucas Goransky

The highlights: #1. STAFF. I echo the sentiments of others who recognized the exceptional staff at this hotel. All young, professional, personable, hospitable. Never have we received such courteous service with genuine care at any hotel anywhere, period. Huge thanks to Matias, Fernando, Mariel, Barbara, the other tall handsome guy whose name starts with D and many others, who made our stay so special. #2. The DESIGN of this hotel is fantastic. Ingenious and simple. 24hr breakfast! The room was spacious with the largest bed I ever slept in...super comfortable and quiet. Note that the sister hotel is just two doors away and some reviewers have mixed the two... This hotel is NEW and spotless. #3. The AREA. We walked nearly everywhere although you can catch a bus easily. Restaurants and shops nearby and the area in general is safe. IN SHORT, I wish I were still there!

Good:
Friendly staff
In-room jet bath
Comfortable lounge on ground floor and basement
Nice interior
Breakfast included (you can try a mate tea, ask the staff)
Transfer to the airport (the fee is expensive than taxi but comfortable and on-time)
Location (2 blocks from Ateneo Grand Splendid bookstore, which was a highlight of my trip)
Free Wi-fi

Not good:
In-room dryer caused a short-circuit of the room electricity twice.
When we were checking out the hotel, an unnecessary charge was included for the dinner we had in the hotel lounge (probably a catering cost? It was not mentioned on the menu). Was deducted after our complaint. Better check the bill carefully.
Laundry bag is not free. Didn't know until asked at check-out.

Although there were some not-good points, the staffs tried to help me for the problems and overall I enjoyed the stay at this hotel. Jet bath is worth enough to choose this hotel.

I just got married here this weekend. It was thanks to the most incredible staff that I've ever seen in my life at any hotel in the world that things went so well. Great service, location and breakfast! This is truly a great hotel and it's really due to the staff!

Great hotel and a nice location for our first trip to Buenos Aires. The room was comfortable and clean. The decor was minimalist with white walls and mirrors, but we enjoyed it. The hotel has a nice lobby with a modern feel, and a couple computers in the breakfast area. It's a nice place to relax after a day of touring. 24-hour breakfast is a nice feature. The breakfast is croissants (medialunas) with dulce de leche and cream, as well as cold cuts, cheeses, cereals, nuts and more. It was more than an adequate breakfast for us.
-- Hotel location is convenient within walking distance to Recoleta, Microcentro and the subway. Plenty of shops and restaurants around, especially on Avenida Santa Fe. While we felt safe overall safe, there are some questionable streets nearby, especially heading south away from Recoleta. Still, this was a great hotel and we would definitely stay there again.

We loved Hotel Design CE! The staff was amazing - helpful, knowledgeable, and gave several wonderful recommendations for places to go to eat, sight-see, and explore. Our room was always clean, the breakfast was great, and being really central made it easy to go anywhere in BA. Also, the bathtub rocked.
A pretty great value, we even liked it so much we extended our stay a few days.
They even had music a few nights in their lovely basement bar, which was a great way to get ready to explore the town late.

The hotel design is different from any other in the area. The service and the staff are really a plus. The rooms have a lot of space and is located in a convenient area.
The breakfast is simple but convenient.
It is a good option in Buenos Aires
