The location cannot be improved upon if you want a city-centre hotel. The rooms really do look like the pictures on the website and the gym, sauna and pool (not-heated by the way, I can attest to that) on the 7th floor while a bit small are a fantastic bonus. Wi-fi throughout the hotel worked perfectly. Breakfast had a generous choice of cereals, cold-cuts etc plus a vast array of Argentinian croissant- style pastries (vigilantes, media luna dulce, media luna salada) and the offer of scrambled eggs with sausages or ham. Restaurant is supposedly one of the best in town but we didn't try it. A mind-boggling wine list at extremely reasonable prices available from the bar at any time, along with as much milk as we required for our young daughter. Melissa sorted out a top-class limo driver who took us out to Carlos Paz, and provided a guided tour for 400 pesos (u$d 95). She was also very flexible offering us a free late check-out.
Arrival was rather too fraught and very dependent on which shift was on duty. You have to ask for a barrel lock for the safe - it was not mentioned on arrival. It had been cold for a maximum of 48 hrs just before our arrival, but the day of our arrival the temperature was a warm 24 degrees c (77f?). Even so, the heating was on full-blast with no way to turn it off - our well-appointed suite was internal and even with the window's open all day it was pretty sticky with no aircon. Some of the luxury touches are a bit too much (the sink tap was discovered not to be childproof within the first 10 minutes) and there had plainly been some water damage on the 4th floor which had caused a couple of minor issues with the parquet in the bedroom and the carpets in the corridor. Minor really - but the cost was very definitely four star and somehow I just expected a bit more from all concerned.
