Reviewed 4 July 2014

We stayed here twice during a 12 day stay in Argentina, departing between stays for a side trip to Mendoza. Both rooms were clean and had all that you would expect in a European style hotel. These are not to be confused with or compared to American style hotels that generally have bigger rooms & restrooms and have a more substantial complimentary breakfast offered. The hotel was on a main thoroughfare in the Recoleta area, which allowed us to walk easily to many sites. The front desk always had someone who spoke English and staff were very helpful. They assisted us with tours and called cabs for us when needed. They held our luggage the last day as we had a late departure. We only had the breakfast option one day and it was basically a continental type breakfast. The Cons: The bathrooms were small (but had the amenities wanted including a hairdryer). Views from the rooms weren't great (other buildings) but we didn't come to stay in the room and look out the window.

I bet there are rooms here with a view, but for our budget, we went cheap and had a view of a roof on a smaller building. The room itself was beautifully decorated and clean, and we were happy with the continental breakfast provided. Overall, this hotel is in a great location and is very nice for the cost. Here are the downsides, which may have been avoidable, but we didn't really care at the time: The bathroom in our room was so tiny that the door hit the toilet when you tried to open it, so it was almost impossible to stand in the bathroom without closing the door (this is how I remember it anyway). For two people, for a night or two, it was fine. We stayed four nights. It started to really drive us crazy. We didn't anticipate spending so much time in the room, so in retrospect, I would have asked for a larger room or one with a view.

I have been to Buenos Aires about 15 times and stayed at some city's finest hotels, but on my last stay, back in June, I thought I'd stay near Santa Fe Avenue as I like the area with lots of shops and people.
The rooms looked nice and modern from the distance but everything was just a minor face lift. Cheap materials, a mixture of different styles. Regular bathroom.
Staff was helpful and cordial. Breakfast was correct.
Definitely not my style and would not return.

Enjoyed it...we stayed April 20-22 and we had a good experience. Great front desk help. Held luggage and the hotel has a nice morning breakfast.
Great Recoleta location. Laundry right around the corner, all the things you would expect in recolata where at this location. Room was good, and there was ample room for the roll-away for our 3 year old.

Room Tip: Room facing the street is better, but the windows are not quiet. Elevators are old but has that old...

The hotel is very nice, spacious rooms, comfortable bed, mostly tasteful decor, but the best thing was the personnel at the reception. Always extremely professional but warm, helpful and a pleasure to deal with them.
Excellent price for the quality.

Room Tip: The rooms are noisy as they are on a main road and they have single glazing, so probably better to...

We stayed here on our last night in Buenos Aires. Expecting a low grade, dated, city centre hotel. We couldn't have been more wrong. The rooms are very boutique in their style. Spacious, moderns and well equipped. Breakfast was satisfactory and general feel in this hotel is very pleasant. I have to say that I usually stay in the Hilton in Puerto Madero but I would consider this for future trips as it is 25% of the cost.

Located in recoleta neighborhood, this hotel is nice, clean and pleasant.
The room we had was quite spacious and equipped. Wi-fi in the room was part of our deal.
There is also a public PC in the lobby.
Good word about the team: they were also happy to help and very kind at all times. fluent English of course.
