Great service, very quiet, good location, and one of the best breakfasts we had in Argentina!

I booked this hotel for a group of us coming from a research vessel after 7 weeks in the Antarctic. I dealt with the booking over the e-mail and all of the dealings I had were excellent and very professional. Adriano on the front desk in the afternoon/evening went beyond what would have been expected, I have been lucky to stay in some very good hotels around the world and the staff were amongst the best I have come across.
Adriano recommended some excellent restaurants and one evening we could not find it and he escorted us form the hotel to the restaurant.

The hotel is new, only opened last May and is clean and extremely well located in the Recoleta area, which is safe and central with great shopping on the doorstep. Breakfast is good and fresh and all the services were in good order. There is no external space at the hotel but for a city hotel this is to not unexpected.

I would highly recommend this hotel especially for the price which is very reasonable, an all round excellent experience.

We've stayed in Buenos Aires before. This was a great choice for accessing all that the city has to offer. It's easy (and safe, if you take the usual care needed in any large city) to walk to key places - or just get a cheap cab. Just remember to take the hotel card with you so drivers know exactly where to drop you - there are roads with similar names and HJ IS a boutique hotel. Rooms are quite spacious. The atmosphere is relaxed. Front desk staff are friendly, patient with those who can't speak Spanish and helpful with all sorts of eccentric queries about food, gauchos and football!

My wife and I stayed in this hotel twice in the past 3 weeks, 5 days in total. We were on our first visit to BA and, particularly after touring the primary tourist areas of the city (SOHO, San Telmo, Retiro, Puerto Madero and so forth), every day we congratulated ourselves for having chosen to stay in Recoleta and, in particular, at this hotel.

The hotel's location is excellent, particularly if you don't mind strolling along leafy sidewalks through a primarily residential neighborhood of stately buildings. Walking to the Recoleta Cemetery and its adjacent artisans' marketplace was easy, interesting and pleasant. On our more hardy days we walked to Plaza del Congreso (and from there, all the way to the Rose Palace) and, on another day, to Calle Florida.

We found several wonderful restaurants nearby the hotel, such as La Olla de Felix and Cumaná. We found a couple of nice gaucho-style leather boutiques and two excellent wine shops (the best is "Armesto" on Pacheo de Melo) within a few blocks of the hotel.

The hotel's breakfast is the same every day, which quickly gets boring, but it is nevertheless decent in quality and variety. The fresh OJ is nice, but since the drip coffee was dismal we used our free welcome drink coupons for espresso drinks.

The rooms are large, modern and clean. Bath amenities are minimal, but the standard items are provided. The free wi-fi saved us a not insignificant amount of money, as we were able to use the wi-fi on our iPhone and Blackberry to send and receive emails, thereby avoiding roaming charges. The hotel does have a fitness center, but it is nothing more than a few low-end machines placed behind a blind.

Finally, service was friendly and efficient. No problems at all there. Check in and out were completed within minutes. The hotel's front office was great in rapidly replying to the several emails I sent regarding late and early arrival requests.

We hope to return to BA someday soon, and would certainly choose to stay again at this hotel.
