The Moreno is a stylish boutique hotel aimed firmly at foreign visitors to Buenos Aires.
It is a very attractive place with an old-style chain-gated elevator and a striking first-floor reception.
We booked a "loft" - one of the bigger rooms - but even the supposedly smaller rooms were huge. The room was very nice. It had some signs of water damage, a darkened floor board, but was beautiful. The whole place was extremely clean.
The Moreno largely appears to cater to overseas tourists. Although marketed as being in San Telmo, the increasingly yuppified neighbourhood to the south of the centre, it is just a block or two from Plaza de Mayo and the Casa Rosada.
One of the big sells for us was the idea of a rooftop breakfast terrace. The terrace - weather permitting - IS really good. But the breakfast was surprisingly poor for a place so stylish. Stewed coffee, decent juices, toast, a bowl of fruit, some yoghurts and the medialunas. And one day the medialunas ran out. So boring fare.
The price, by European standards, was decent at under £80 a night. But the Moreno was let down by its breakfast and there are better-value deals for hotels to be had in Bs As. Any corner cafe in the city will get you a better breakfast.
Service at Moreno was fine and staff spoke Spanish and English.
