“Excellent Location, Big Room, Nice Staff”
Reviewed March 16, 2014

The location can't be beat - you can walk just about anywhere in Recoleta quickly. The front desk is staff is very friendly and helpful. As noted in other reviews, the rooms are surprisingly large as are the bathrooms (complete with bidets!).

The construction is continuing next door (as of early March, 2014). Our first 2 days at the property were over a holiday and we didn't hear any construction. On day 3 it started early in the morning and was so loud we thought it was in the room next door. The noise insulation is not very good overall (we could hear the next door neighbor's TV on occasion).

Given the room rates and all of the other positives about the hotel the noise was not an issue. The workout room is small but nicely equipped. While we were there the treadmill was not working and the hot tub was being repaired. The latter was disappointing because it was working on we first saw it but not when we had the time. The view of the Recoleta Cemetery from the rooftop deck (where the hot tub is located) is beautiful.

Even given the noise I would highly recommend the place.

Room Tip: Ask to be as far from the construction side of the building as possible

From the outside, you'd have no idea that this little hotel is as great as it is inside. Right across Junin Ave from the Recoleta Cemetery in that beautiful part of town, Urban Suites has large comfortable rooms, great bedding, free wifi, big clean bathrooms, an elevator, excellent free breakfast with delicious coffee and a smart, welcoming and efficient staff that speaks English and is eager to help solve any problem. You could spend three, four or five times as much for a fancy name hotel in Buenos Aires but you likely wouldn't do much better (and you'd have less to spend on the city's great restaurants). They arrange transportation to the airport if you want and will help line you up on all kinds of excursions. There are some excellent restaurants very nearby, including the fabulous Fervor, a walk of about six blocks. Our balcony overlooked the cemetery, which was a lovely view. Some reviewers have mentioned construction next door and that's still going on. But it didn't bother us at all.

We arrived in Buenos Aires and were promptly picked up by a Urban Suites driver who delivered us safely to our hotel. They charged us a whopping $50 for early checkin but we gladly paid after a long overnight flight. The room was clean and modern. The location is fantastic to access local sites. The entry to the cemetery was just a few hundred yards from our front door and a small mall to get necessities even closer making it super easy to direct taxi drivers. The breakfast in a little room in the basement was very nice. The staff all round were friendly but it helps to speak a little Spanish for simple needs. This is Buenos Aires and in the smaller hotels not everyone will be fluent in English. Most people speak a little English so we got along very well. This hotel was an excellent value for the money!

This hotel is great: the rooms are large, free breakfast is satisfying, and the location is perfect. HOWEVER, we stayed there from January 4th - January 11th, 2014 and there is currently construction going on there. The construction starts at 8 am every weekday and goes for most of the day. It is nearly impossible to sleep through it.

As mentioned, the hotel is great, but if you are staying in the near future, be aware of the construction going on!

This has been an excellent hotel with amazing staff. Will definitely go back there!

Service was quick and outstanding. Staff had been really helpful to assist in all our needs. It is also located in a good area with easy access to tourist attractions.

The breakfast could have been a bigger spread of things just to have more options of things to eat as we were only eating halaal.

The building next door had construction going on so was noisy in the morning but was not unbearable and I'm sure once this construction is complete there won't be an issue.

A big thank you to ALL staff, for making our stay an easy and comfortable one.

We stayed at the Urban Suites and will definately return. The staff really makes the experience. The front desk staff were always reliable and eager to help. Even after we checked out (we rented a condo for part of the trip) we can back to the Urban Suites for info from the front desk staff. They are the best! The location in Recoleta is fantastic!

Location is good but the conditions of the hotel is awful.
Because of the construction aside the hotel it's not possible to sleep. They start at 7 am ! Also
Bathroom is not functioning properly. Once you use the WC, water drops at least half an hour !!

Shortly; it's possible to find better options around !!
