If you re in the mood for glassed walled bathrooms and velvet red curtains this the place. Phantom of the Opera -modern-romantic-cool atmosphere. Long well lighted aisles and lounges,
big rooms, and open views in the safe and beautiful Puerto Madero Area.
We had one queen room and one twin room, the queen was ver comfortable but the twin beds were too small.
The worse thing was the AC, it jumped from icy cold to too warm in 20 seconds, the thermostat seem not to be working and it was a nightmare to set, it really ruined the night.
Breakfast was nothing impressive from the point of view of the food but I loved the ceiling and the decorations at El Mercado restaurant. Other places were decorated a bit over the top but this restaurant was really nice.
The pool was supposed to be warm and it was cold, so nobody was swimming in spite of the beautiful design and the 29 degrees centigrades... we had a great guacamole and hummus by the pool but the salmon was not so great...the life guards and bell boys are the nicest staff we met as concierges and reception seem to be trained to look distant and cool... of course. Furnishing, decorations and food are all mixed quality... and there s something fishy in the ABOUT US lines in the Hotel Book that remind you too much of a famous Apple TV add " Think Different" . I don t think it is great value to choose this hotel... AC was a real annoying matter and the Four Seasons has far better overall authentic service and the rates are quite similar.
