“Excellent stay”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

Great Spa area, great style of furniture and general decoration, nice and efficient staff. The location is not the absolutely best you can get, but it is located close to all major tourist attractions.

The only downside is the price of breakfast ... If you want to safe some cash, just go to any coffee bar close to the hotel and have your media-lunas there.

I will definitively be back.

It would be harsh to deduct a star from my review as in general terms the hotel is wonderful. The bedrooms are superbly equipped and even has a nightlight. Bathrooms are large and I loved the large shower.
We were not that impressed with the breakfast buffet which was limited as compared to other hotels on our trip. I also did not like being charged for an omelette. When we arrived for breakfast we were told that if we wanted anything else we only had to ask.....we were not told that it was about $20 extra. I spoke to the front desk and they immediately removed the charge and agreed that it was not explained properly.
However overall this is a well located well run hotel with fabulous staff always ready to help. When I asked for a late checkout this was granted on the departure morning and we kept the room until 3pm. Do try it.....

We stayed there for our last 2 nights in Argentina and it was a perfect finish. Nice room, bathroom with floor-heating and big enough. Our daughter loved the well tempered pool! Good happy hour with some special Argentinian local drinks which taste good. Great breakfast and helpful staff.
Only the extra charge for the kids bed is petty because on top of that you have to pay then extra tax.

Clean, luxurious modern rooms. Nice dipping pool upstairs. Lunch and dinner in restaurant was some of the best food I had in Argentina. And staff was incredibly helpful and gracious, I had some last minute travel changes and the front desk and concierge spent a lot of time straightening out some issues for me. I highly recommend the hotel.

We stayed here 2 nights at the beginning of a 10-day trip. We were so pleased with the hotel & staff that we cancelled the 2-day stay reserved at a different hotel so that we could return here. The rooms are very comfortable & we'll-appointed. The bathroom is very large and modern. Reception was well-staffed & was extremely helpful even though we arrived quite early. Everyone seemed to be a well-prepared concierge. Check in was fast & bellman when took bags to room explained all the amenities & appeared to be in training for reception-concierge which seems to be a very well-thought out process. The hotel is within easy walking distance of Puerto Madero Harbour, Retiro & Recoleta & Piegeri Vitello & Dolce (sp?) restaurant which we found to be excellent for dinners. The only downside to the hotel is the cost of the buffet breakfast (more than US$30 per person) -- no omelette/egg station or fresh prepared alternatives & the chaffing dish & cold plate choices were limited & very ordinary. Other than that solitary quibble, everything about the hotel is top-flight & there is a very good sandwich/pastry/coffee shop Caffe Martinez just around the corner & a not-bad low-cost full breakfast Denny's-like chain place 5 minutes walk away next to San Martin Park -- nice place for an after breakfast walk.

Stayed there twice recently and both stays were excellent. We were warmly welcomed at 4am after a late flight and given suites on the 15th floor which were excellent. Very well decorated, bathroom was huge and luxurious and the beds very comfortable.
The breakfast buffet was nicely done with lots of choice and very good service. The staff are all very friendly and welcoming and go out of their way to assist you. The gym is slightly on the small side but is well enough equipped.
And with the recent devaluation of the peso, this was not an expensive stay for such a top quality hotel. Highly recommend

Room Tip: If you can get a good deal on one of the suites on the 15th floor it is well worth it. They are huge...

This is a comfortable if a little corporate and somewhat charmless hotel in a good area of BA. I think that for centrality it is very good. Plenty to walk to, and excellent food service and really quite professional. Rooms were comfortable and quiet. It was ideal for a stay when we were tired and needed a decent hotel to recover.

We had so much average steak and awful coffee in BA that this actually had decent food and Nespresso Coffee - which would not set the world on fire, but its better than the american style tasteless dishwater we found in most places. (It seems no one in BA or even Argentina really knows about coffee from our brief experience - It's no Rome, Paris, Vienna Lyon or even Melbourne)

Dear Guest,

Thank you so much for reviewing our hotel.

We are glad you found the nespresso machine in your room the best choice of coffee.

If you're back in Buenos Aires, we would love to recommend the best places to drink coffee.
