The best feature of this hotel is its location. Within walking distance are simple cafes, more upscale restaurants, weekend crafts fair, pricey hotel boutiques (in the nearby grand dame hotels) and stores located street side and within the Bullfinch mall. Right in the midst of Recoleta, it is wonderful to stroll the streets and wind up back at the hotel. The building is actually a converted apartment house (Eva Peron once lived here) and the building facade blends into the streetscape.. That being said, this is a boutique property--the roof pool is small, our room was cozy, but quirky in shape, the bathroom a bit too compact. But the lobby/public area is elegant and lovely giving off a charming old world European vibe., Within 2 minutes of sitting down, somebody always came by to ask if we needed assistance or wanted to order from the bar or light menu. Our room was a deluxe king, with a small sitting area and a terrace/jacuzzi facing the indoor inner courtyard. Breakfast was a fine buffet, which after 5 mornings we wished was a little more inspired. We also felt the prices fair, given the ambiance and tone of the area and its location near so many of the super deluxe and super expensive name hotels. This would be a rave review if we had not had a mixed experience with the gentlemen at the front desk. There were two staff shifts, and one of the front desk men was fabulous-helpful, attentive to our requests, friendly and full of information and advice. The other fellow was noticably indifferent. One morning the hairdryer in our room was broken and we called down to the desk in a panic. Guess which of the two front desk people did not know if or where another hotel hairdryer might be, and guess which front desk person helped and found another appliance immediately? To the hotel's credit, the room/wall hair dryer was replaced in a day.
This illustrates how just one employee can influence a traveler's perception of a hotel. We do,
however, recommend The Recoleta Plaza to all and would definitely stay here again.
