“great stay at this boutique hôtel”
Reviewed 24 February 2013

We stayed here for two nights in between a 2 day trip to Iguazu falls.
Serena lives up to its name, providing a peaceful (adults only hotel), zen like atmosphere, quiet spacious room/ bathroom in an excellent, safe area of BA. Good restaurants and upscale mall within short walking distance of hotel.
Breakfast is delicious, served in a lovely spot, with outdoor patio area adjacent. Free welcome drink!
We did not use the sauna, spa or pool, but that area was also very attractive.
Friendly and helpful staff. Our luggage was stored for us while we were in Iguazu, and also during our last day in BA up until we needed to head out to EZE.
Would book again!

Room Tip: our fifth floor twin room facing the street was a fine location for a good night's rest

My wife and I stayed at this hotel after a 15 day cruise of the South American coast. This hotel offered a perfect location, an attentive staff who were always ready to take care of anything we needed, and spacious and well appointed rooms. The staff spoke excellent English which was helpful since my Spanish is very rusty. There is a beautiful patio in the rear that is perfect for a late afternoon drink. The complimentary breakfast offered a nice combination of fruit, meat, and excellent coffee. We were looking for a small boutique hotel after being on a large ship and this fit the bill perfectly. The wi-fi worked perfectly in all areas of the hotel and this allowed us to stay in touch with family and friends home. This was particularly nice because the wi-fi on the ship worked only sporadically. I found nothing to fault about the hotel and believe me we can be picky.

Fairly new small hotel in a great location. Staff communicates very clearly in english! Breakfast is excellent, make sure you order your eggs as they are not offered, although we found the service to be excellent.

My sister-in-law and I just got back yesterday from a 9-night stay at Serena Hotel. It is such a beautiful hotel in a great area, located on a quiet street. The staff was very helpful and pleasant, but not overly friendly or warm, which was fine with us, because their English was great, which made communication a breeze. The complementary breakfast was great, choices of fresh fruit, cheese, cured meats/cold cuts, small rolls (bread), yogurt with topping varieties like almonds and dried fruit, tea and coffee; oh and a variety of pastry...always a sweet end to breakfast. If you want anything more elaborate like bacon and eggs you can always ask but I am not sure whether you will have to pay since we just stuck with whatever was laid out. It is an adult-only hotel with a swimming pool, sauna and spa. The rooms were always clean and well stocked. They have a well-stocked bar, always a plus on vacations, but not a restaurant. However you can order items off their limited menu...nothing fancy - salads, quiche, pasta, but no dinner entrees. A few downers worth mentioning, no iron in the rooms, they iron/launder at a price (not much tho) and they ironed a piece of clothing for me free of charge; the wi-fi can be a bit of a nuisance from the rooms, but it's free; apart from the bathroom vanity mirror, there is no other mirror in the room; no full-body mirror for dressing. But once you can get past these nuances you will have a great stay like we did. Great stress-free stay...bravo Serena Hotel!!

Room Tip: We had a room on the 5th floor overlooking the street and it was great, never heard any street noise...

Great hotel, good location, the rooms are nice but a bit small. Breakfast is excellent, really good fruit plate and fresh eggs if you ask for them. Great coffee too.
The staff were good but could have been a bit more helpful. If you intend to use the sauna or steam room make sure you let them know in advance as by default they're turned off.

I highly recommend this adult-only boutique hotel due to its central location. The staff are very friendly, helpful and informative. Breakfast was outstanding. Be sure to try one of the restaurants in Recova under the underpass around the corner. If you like boutique hotels, the Serena is for you.

Excellent hotel, beautifully finished, good friendly service. Lovely room. We were upgraded to the best room in the hotel free of charge the day we arrived. - Very decent breakfast.

Would go back any time.
