Howard Johnson Hotel Boutique Recoleta
Ranked #45 of 444 Hotels in Buenos Aires
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 8 November 2011

Stayed here for three nights on a recent first trip to Argentina. Hotel is in a good location - safe to walk around at night and restaurants nearby. Rooms very spacious, great bathroom and good breakfasts. Visited BA at end of a tour of Patagonia all organised for us by Imagine Latin America, which was great. Good hotel to relax in and enjoy after quite a bit of travelling around.

I usually don't stay at chain hotels - I prefer 'local' places, so I was a bit skeptical about a Howard Johnson property. But this one is great. Super clean, friendly service and a great breakfast included. It's walking distance to many good restaurants, the Recoleta Cemetery, Fine Arts museum. We walked late at night with no problems. My only minor complaint is that the wi-fi got slow in the evening.

I liked because the location was perfect, it is located in a very quiet street, but is near to one of the busiest streets in Buenos Aires, Santa Fe. Also near to good restorants and places to drink coffee and eat medialunas. The area was very safe.
Rooms were wide, big, clean bathroom, and we had free wifi access. The breakfast was basic but very good quality, and the staff in general is friendly and helpful. I think that is a little bit expensive, but you know that you are paying for a good and well located hotel.

As many others we picked this hotel based on reviews here on TripAdvisor. They were not worng. This is a real nice property. Located an easy walk from the Recoleta Cementary, Santa Fe shopping district and cheap cab ride to most eveywhere else. The immediate neighborhood is residential with a few locally used restaurants near by (try Le Brut across the street but be sure not to arrive until at least 9PM). There are also two supermarkets in the next block and a "lavanderia" (washing/ironing service) right around the corner.
The rooms are excellent, large and well equipped. FREE WiFi!! The breakfast is nothing fancy but everything that you could ask for, including scrambled eggs on request. We actually prefered the breakfast here over the one put on by a high ed 5-star property elsewhere.
The staff was friendly and helpful. We did not use them to set up any tours or other issues but they responded appropriately to all of our requests and we only had a english problem with one night shift front desk person.
Yes, there is construction right next door but it never bothered us since we were out most of the day and there certainly was nothing going on early morning or in the evening.

We chose the Howard Johnson because of the good reviews on trip advisor. The hotel is modern, clean & well located.The area is safe & close to shops & tourist highlights. Breakfast is basic but adequate.
Monica at the front desk was fantastic in terms of reseraching some of the tours & reservation we wanted to do. There was also another lady at reception- but she was very unhelpful & had a serious attitude.So avoid frustration & get Monica to help you.
It was great having the free wi-fi through the hotel.
My only real complaint is that there is a new building being constructed right next door- so it is very noisy in the mornings even with the double glazed windows.I wish someone had mentioned this in their reviews as I would have avoided the hotel for this reason alone. I think the hotel was over-priced given the noise level.

Room Tip: If you are going to stay at the Howard Johnson during construction ask for rooms on the 7th or 8th f...

I choose this HoJo due to the good reviews here and the great rate I found.

The pros:
Convenient and safe location.
Decent breakfast spread.
Front desk that speaks fair to good English.
Large modern rooms.
Free Wi-fi and computers and printing in lobby.

The cons:
Hotel suggested tours were way overpriced.
Stay away from Room 104. Able to hear the chairs grating over the tile floors.
Not a big deal but towels were old and frayed but clean.

I probably wouldn't go back just because I like to try different neighborhoods but would definitely recommend to first timers to BA.

Room Tip: Ask for the 02,04 rooms in the back for very quiet rooms except for 104.

We chose the Recoletta location because of the restaurants and shops. The hotel is surrounded by them. We walked to a restaurant in the Recoletta at night and it was very safe. The people at the front desk spoke english. They had the internet in the lobby. The rooms were clean. The bathroom shower water pressure was the best. They provided complimentary coffee. For breakfast there was fruit, cereal, danishes and juices. There wasn't much seating and we did have to wait a couple minutes. My only regret is that the tv was in spanish and we couldn't figure out how to turn it to english. Other than that it was a great stay.
