I spent four nights at the Laprida Suites in the beginning of January 2007 when I arrived in Buenos Aires, and then returned for my last night in Argentina in February. The location of Laprida 1737 is terrific: walking distance to many great restaurants (including a great little empanada cafe on the corner), the Recoleta Cemetary, and the subway on Avenue Santa Fe. Nice, safe, quiet neighbourhood, very pleasant to walk around.
The suites themselves are clean, well apppointed, secure, and serviced every day. I had a suite to myself, but it would hold a family of four comfortably. On the roof of the building is a pool and deck, with great views. At about $70 US a night, this place was great mid range value...rates at the large hotels (ie Sheraton) were several hundred dollars per night.
Other things I liked: very easy to book over the internet, with an online reservation capacity and secure payment system through Paypal. Marcela, the operator, is very personable, and meets guests at the building at the appointed time. (This is not a hotel, though, so if you don't arrive at the expected time, there is nobody to meet you...just call ahead to change arrangements.
I would return to this place (actually, I did, for my last night out).
