I had high expectations, I found it very average, but is a problem in all Porteño Hotels. People at the door not friendly, I had to look for taxis myself. Everytime we drove through the port cochere no one was there to open the door. The Concierge very professional. front desk just doing their job, nothing extra, no anticipation of needs, careless.
Rooms too traditional, I wont say is horrible, I would say is not my style.
At breakfast waiter brought me the check to sign, 10 minute after I started to eat, in the middle, I found lack of training in this area. the fine dining restaurant was really good, service is not up to par to the place and food they serve. I don't think I will come back, maybe I will try Alvear Art.
