Stayed here for 3 nights as part of a package deal prior to joining a cruise.
We arrived quite late on Saturday night having not been to bed for 48 hours due to a very early flight from Heathrow.
Was allocated room 11 on 1st floor, very large with kitchenette/dining table/sofa etc. Had a problem operating the safe but a quick call to reception and a key was promptly delivered.
We were both so tired we went straight to sleep and the next thing I knew at 5.45am I awoke to very loud trance music coming from the adjacent nightclub which my husband informed me had been going on since midnight and finished around 6am!
Breakfast was included in the deal and although the dining room was very small there was a very nice array of hot and cold food. The coffee was freshly made by the cup and it was excellent,nice and strong.
The hotel is in a very safe district, we had no problems getting around and is directly opposite the Recoleta Cemetery, the resting place of Eva Peron ( if you go up to the top floor of the hotel and into the gym you can see over the high walls) My what a sight, I have never seen anything like it. It is free to go in and there is a free guided tour in English on a Tuesday morning.
There was a small market on the Sunday morning near the large rubber tree.
We purchased a 2 day city open top bus pass and managed to get around by this method.fairly well.
Not a lot of English spoken in Argentina and not many places took credit cards. We used our cash cards to withdraw local currency.
On checking in at the hotel we were advised that there would be noise from the building works next door Monday-Friday 9am-5pm.
As we went out early this was not a problem until the last day when drilling started at 8.30am.
Suggest that if you intend to stay here, a room on a higher floor and at the back might be better.
