Hotel Raco offers very tastefully decorated contemporary rooms in a beautifully restored Beaux Arts building featuring high ceilings, hardwood floors, stained glass and cast iron details. The hotel is impeccably clean, the staff is attentive, friendly yet extremely professional, helpful, and perfectly bilingual. Located slightly off the touristic areas, hotel Raco is the perfect spot to enjoy some quiet in a leafy residential neighborhood while staying connected with all the must-see areas, which are easily accessible from the subte station only 3 blocks away. Around the hotel, a copious choice of restaurants, confiterias and shops offers a most attractive alternative to tourists spots, one that also carries a feeling of getting in touch with a more real experience of Buenos Aires. The hotel gem is the bridal suite. My wife and I have travelled extensively in North America, in France, in Australia and Hong Kong, and have stayed in much higher grade hotels than this one. Although it's not the the well-oiled 24/7 machine of a palace-hotel, or maybe BECAUSE it's not that, the room and the level of service we found in Buenos Aires will remain one of our best experience. The mix of modern chic and old-World class makes for an atmosphere that remains unparalleled in our experience. A word of advice: you may want to reserve directly from the hotel rather than going through an internet broker: you will get a more personal service right from the time of reservation and you will be able to reserve one of the suites, which are not otherwise available (Expedia offered misleading information on this particular point). I am writing this extensive review (something I never usually bother to do) to acknowledge the fact that the owner of hotel Raco and his staff went out of their way to make our stay perfect, to acknowledge the great taste and the hard work that went into crafting such a unique experience for Buenos Aires visitors.
