We have just returned from a wonderful 10 day stay in Rooney's Boutique Hotel in the Capital Federal District of Buenos Aires. The hotel occupies the 3rd floor of a well-maintained building, just off Avenida Corrientes, a busy thoroughfare and the hotel is also very close to Av. Santa Fe which is a key shopping street in Buenos Aires and the theatre district. The hotel is decorated in a French style, with exquisitely decorated rooms featuring period style furnishings. The key strength of this hotel however lies in its reception staff - nothing is too much trouble such as organising airport transfers, tango show tickets, booking and recommending restaurants. The air-conditioned rooms are also kept to impeccable standards of cleanliness. Breakfast is a modest affair and could be improved upon without too much trouble e.g. offering more than one cereal, serving fresh orange juice and using tea-pots for morning tea, rather than having to ask for more hot water etc. A hand-towel rail within the bathroom would also be handy. These are small quibbles though. Buenos Aires is a fabulous city to visit and having travelled throughout the country to Iguazu Falls, Bariloche, Villa L'Angustura and San Martin de los Andes, and seen amazing sights and scenery, it is its people that are certainly its best asset. One thing to be aware of - B.A. has the same dangers any large city of 4 million plus inhabitants would have and the hotel is in a downtown location, so use your 'street smarts' when entering and leaving the hotel, do not display expensive jewellery, cameras or under any circumstances open your wallet on the street. Any porteno (Buenos Aires citizen) will tell you the same thing and all are very security conscious themselves. I would highly recommend Rooneys to my friends, I would also stay there again and once again, the staff such as Nico and all of the team in reception are a superb asset to any business.
