This was such a joy. Wonderful renovation of big old building. Great big wrought-iron lifts going up through the centre. My room was the size of a large studio flat with high ceilings and a hip/urban/minimalist joy. Beautifully done with high quality finishes. Loved the bathroom and especially the large walk-in shower with wonderful water pressure. I had a first floor room at the front of building so some low level noise at times but not really a problem. This hotel really is a pleasure to stay in. Got a good deal on-line so only paid about £60 per night.
The reception area is very unusual and I thought it was lovely although Lonely Planet was a little snippy about it....
The breakfasts are standard Argentinian fare and one of the only areas that I thought the hotel could improve on. Also a nice rooftop terrace. A separate terrace with a hot-tub was out of action while I was there.
It's a shame that the hotel isn't closer to the centre of St Telmo. But only a 10/15 minute walk to main Dorrego square which is great early evening for a drink and to watch the tango. Also lots of side roads on the way which are full of bars and restaurants.
Although there is a restaurant below the hotel, it is fairly formal and fine dining.
The hotel service is excellent. Had lots of help with booking a ferry to Uruquay. They even offered to have the electronic ticket sent to them so they could print it easily for me. Later, after leaving the hotel, I managed to lose my return ticket. On emailing the reception staff, they had replied and provided me with another copy within fifteen minutes.
Would definitely return. And would recommend for a weekend stay -- the Sunday market runs from a few yards away into the central Dorrego square.
