Three of us spent 2 nights at Hotel Lion d’Or. We had room 111, which was large enough for us to spread out without crowding the room. It faced the street but with the balcony doors closed at night, we didn’t hear the traffic. The ceilings were high and the wood floors made the room seem even larger. There is...

The price was very reasonable for our two double rooms and the staff was friendly and accommodating. But being on the street side of the hotel meant a lot of noise and, even with earplugs, we could still hear car horns honking and revelers singing at 4 AM. Our bathroom also could have been cleaner. While it was inconvenient not...

First, this is not an upscale luxury hotel that caters to the whims of upper crust travellers. It is a very clean, comfortable and simple small hotel that you would find extremely difficult to beat for the money. I requested and got a single room that was quiet. It was certainly small, but very cozy and inviting after hours of...

I had a very good experience with this hotel. Booking was easy, service at the front desk was friendly and attentive. The room was clean, with high ceilings, a TV with a good selection of channels, and ample wardrobe space. The bathroom was clean and the bed was comfortable. I also found the building quite charming, and I thought it...

My husband and I stayed here for 4 days and regretted staying in this hotel. We are not fussy. We are mid-budget travelers and mostly value location, cleanliness and safety. While we did indeed get those things, we were annoyed/disappointed by lots of problems. *There was no breakfast. That's a small thing but worth mentioning. *We had already arranged in...

My husband and I recently stayed at the hotel Lion Dor for three nights in their most "deluxe" room ($250 pesos/night). We had stayed at this hotel on another trip in late 2006. The location is great - on a quiet street in Recoleta - a very safe and nice area with lots of cafes, etc. The room we stayed...

I stayed at this hotel in May, 2007 for one week. The hotel staff are professional and courteous. The hotel location is ideal. In Recoleta and on a safe, clean street. The hotel is a great bargain, but there are also "nicer" and more expensive rooms. I stayed in the cheapest double room. The furnishings are simple and reminded me...

This small family-run hotel is an extraordinary bargain in the elegant Recoleta district of Buenos Aires. The wealthy residential neighborhood is very clean and safe, and offers many pleasant cafes and services within a few blocks of the hotel. As a single woman, safety was a big concern for me, and I always felt comfortable walking around day or night....

Myself and my husband stayed here for one night while we overnighted in BA on our way to Iguazu. For 110 pesos(approx $37 USD ) we got a large double room, with a fan and a tiny bathroom. Everything was clean, towels were provided and the fan was sufficent to keep us cool. While the bathroom was tiny, it had...

Staying in Recoleta

Neighbourhood Profile
Characterised by the French-style mansions which are the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this neighbourhood is an experience like no other in Buenos Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll also find a rich cultural scene centred on the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library, and the Recoleta Cultural Center; as well as some great shopping spots, like the Buenos Aires Design Mall with an artists' fair set up in Plaza Francia every weekend.
