Mine really was a home-from-home with beguilingly lovely staff. Nothing was too much trouble for them and they always went the extra mile, anticipated our needs, were very friendly and knowledgeable and really made our stay.
The hotel is very nicely and relaxingly designed in muted tones, with lots of glass, polished concrete, good lighting, soft music in the public areas and a small plunge pool/water feature in the garden. The rooms are nicely decorated and comfortable but small, although the bed, Jacuzzi bath and TV are large. There is also a DVD/CD player and a good library of DVDs available free-of-charge. Wireless broadband is also free and a great benefit. Breakfast in included, very good and always served with a smile, although the choice is limited. Overall, the attention to detail is great and really makes the place.
We were there twice, with a week between stays. Our first room was on the top floor and the second on the floor below, both looking over the garden but directly opposite a very high, large wall. The first was much lighter and had some view over the wall and roofs, while the room below had no view beyond the garden and the high wall and was much darker, but had a small balcony, which was nice. So, the trade-off is between light/view and balcony. Either way, I would definitely recommend taking a higher category room because both of ours - superiors - although very comfortable, were very small.
This place has some of the best service I have ever come across. Everything is really easy and happens without any fuss. We left a case in the store between stays and, when we returned, it was already in our new room, on a stand. A small thing, but very thoughtful and most welcome after a long trip back. The staff was also happy to recommend bars and shops and reserve restaurants, etc.
One word of warning: avoid the nearby La Retirada restaurant, which was by far our worst restaurant experience in Argentina - bad food and shockingly bad service.
