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.

Our travel agent booked us into this hotel after we told her we preferred boutique hotels. Unfortunately, this was hardly the experience we hoped for. The rooms are run down with cracks in the sinks, in the ceilings, and dirty walls. The desk staff were non-helpful and at

Thanks for your review. The building has 100 years, we are starting an important remodelation, we know that some rooms have details, but on the other hand, we offer one of the bests deals in the neighbourhood (Recoleta). We are afraid, you had a really high expectation of Buenos Aires, and you got dessapointed (due to this comment "it is surrounded by many ugly modern buildings (although to be fair, this is the case in much of Buenos Aires"). We are used to get reviews about the Front Desk, we would like to know why you think that sometimes they were rude to you. Regards,

We were put here by a Tour Operator. On arrival the front door was locked, once we had found our way to our allocated room, inspected it, and discovered it was in poor repair, chipped and cracked sink, peeling paint and wallpaper, mold, broken telephone, filthy curtains, lack

Thanks for your review. January, it was a busy a month for us, it is a small hotel, we work with many travel agencies, and with GDS systems, if you were here just for a really short period of time, it is possible that you had not seen another guests. You had the chance to upgrade your booking, to a King room (with more lights, to the street, with chairs and with more space in the room) even thoug, you decided to change to another hotel, we respected that. We know, that we have details to solve, but we offer one the best deals in this area, you had another more expensive (way more expensive) options nearby. The breakfast area, has led lighting, it is not dark, it is not necessary to have lights like a stadium, we always liked to certain cosy atmosphere. We have been working with many tour operators since 2004, and it is not normal, to receive so despective complains. We think, you had really high expectations, for a small budget hotel (we offer rates from USD 50 per night), and that is why, you were so uncomfortable. Regards,

Also most of the rooms are internal - so no windows or daylight. Everything is old and damaged. Mould in the bathrooms. Cheap bedding/towels, damaged furniture - TVs that were impossible to use - A/C unreliable and very small gloomy (again no windows) breakfast room with very

Thanks for your review. First of all, it is a flat with 100 years, I think you are quiet confused, we have replaced all the towels two months ago with one of the best companies in town. We know that have some things to reform, with just in some rooms (that could not be solved in high season). On the other hand, we remind that you have paid a really low rate, we still offer a good rate (you can ready other comments) for the area we are. On the other hand, we have only 8 (eight) internal rooms with small windows, if it was a problem for you, why did you ask to move to other one? The TV is possible to use, it was a shame you did not ask at the front desk, the same with the air conditioning, the Front Desk is to solve problems, if you do not ask, we can´t know if something is wrong. We are reforming some rooms, but for finantial reasons, we can close two months to do everything faster. According to the breakfast, we desagree, A Hotel offers a good breakfast, we serve coffee, different types of tea, different types of bread, croissants, cheese cream, sweet jam, “dulce de leche”, honey, different types of fruits, cereal, yogurt, jam and cheese, and orange juice. For a hotel that offers non refundable rates from USD 55 + TAX, what did you expect? It is a shame you did not give us the chance to make your stay more comfortable. Regards,

DO NOT STAY HERE. (Now called 'A Hotel', they were previously called Art Hotel and judging from the rest of the place, I'd guess the 'rt' fell off one day a decade ago and they never bothered to replace it). With so many great hotel and AirBnB options available in BA, many for a

Thanks for your review. We have photographs of ALL OUR rooms, in our website, and in all Reservation Systems. The problem, is that you have seen the images of the "King" rooms, and you have reserved a "Queen" with a non refundable rate. After staying in the room, you wanted a refund for the whole amount of the stay (three nights). Having "standard rates", why did you reserve the cheapest non refundable rate available? We inform you, that is not possible to find a 4 stars hotel (like you expected) for a rate of USD 66.33 per night with breakfast included (we dare to find a hotel at Cristmas Eve in Buenos Aires for that money). We know that some rooms, have old courtains and some painting details, but nothing serious. We do maintenance regularly and some details, could not be solved at high season. We quote your comment "I'll admit that the combination of disappointment, frustration, and shock at the treatment, combined with the melancholy of a Christmas Day away from family, made me want to cry." , WE ASKE YOU, is it our fault that you have decided to travel at this time of the year? Fortunatelly, most of our clients apreciate our hotel, and post good reviers. It is a shame you did not accept a room change, if you felt so unconfortable. Regards,

A Hotel is a charming boutique hotel in the heart of Recoleta, an upscale neighborhood in Buenos Aires. We were warmly greeted after a very long travel day by a charming desk clerk who helped up with our (ton of) luggage and checked us in quickly and efficiently. There is a
