“Rooms extremely noisy”
Reviewed 30 March 2012

We stayed in the apartment with two bedrooms, across the garden, not in the main rooms of the hotel. The hotel is lovely, and the apartment is great too, but it was SO noisy all night long, nobody was able to sleep AT ALL. This is the reason I give only 2 stars, otherwise I'd given it 4 or 5.

Room Tip: Never stay in the apartment that is inside the hotel.

As an alternative to staying at an estancia this would now be our preferred option. After a travel snafu we decided to return to San Antonio de Areco , one of our favourite locations in Argentina rather than staying in BA.

The posada is very comfortable on a huge block with lovely garden and within 20 mins walk of the main square.

The welcome is extremely warm and both roberto (the owner) and anna (the manager) could not have been more helpful. For example apart from some great recommendations for restaurants and a local show, anna was more than happy to put through a load of laundry (appreciated after 3 weeks on the road!).

We enjoyed the freedom of staying in town and having the opportunity of trying some great restaurants ( Almagem de Ramos Generales, Tokio, Esquina la Merthi) whilst still enjoying the surrounding estancias through day trips. We visited La Portenia and El Ombru , thoroughly enjoying both days. In future we will definitely stay in the posada rather than at an estancia as it gives a great relaxed and more flexible way of enjoying San Antonio de areco and it's surroundings. We will return!

I spent two nights at this Posada. The location is unbeatable. It faces a quiet Plaza (square) full of beautiful trees. It has an inside park that invites moments of reflection and relax. My room (Bach) was outstanding, located in front of the main garden, ideal for couples looking for a bit of privacy. It has enough parking space to leave a car (or in my case, a motorcycle). Reception by Mrs. Ana was polite and efficient at once. Maid and breakfast service was great. There is excellent attention to detail in the decoration without overding it. If you are a piano player, you are invited to use it at leisure. It is located only four blocks from the main center/square which makes this an ideal location to escape from the noise (if it at all happens) during the weekends. One thing is to be noticed: breakfast is not abundant in variety or quantity. This is not North America nor Europe. It is just fine, served in a beautiful dining room overlooking both the attactive patio and the inviting spacious garden. I would go again for sure. I paid the equivalent of US$100 in pesos. It is worth it. Pablo

We stayed in San Antoinio de Arecco to take in some of Dia de la Tradicion.
We could not have picked a better place.
Tessie was very welcoming and helpful and got us orientated.
San Antonio is a sleepy town but she helped us make the most of it.
The room was fine and the location excellent. Just a short walk to the main square.
The only problem we had was that there was some building going on but that did not affect us.

We stayed here for two nights and could easily have stayed a week! The room was just lovely, comfy bed, lovely decor and great old fashioned bathroom. But the best part was the surrounding gardens - an oasis in the heat! Beautiful garden in the middle of the buildings - it was so tempting just to sit out in the shade with a book so we did just that! We also got very good restaurant recommendations from the lovely lady at reception. My only complaint about this posada was that they didn't accept credit cards despite being relatively expensive and the local atm's restricting the amount you can take out. A minor complaint all in all.

I stayed in this handsome well located B&B and found the building to be beautiful and the service friendly. It is well located in the town centre.
As friendly as the hosts are they could provide bicycles, the two in the garden has flat tyres and were covered in dirt. Breakfast could include proteins e.g eggs or meats. I think also they could have more information on what to see as I wanted to ride horses the place suggested was low quality. It's lovely and nice for a stay in this cute town

San Antonio de Areco is a delightful little town and our stay at Posada De La Plaza made it even more perfect. We stayed for 4 nights and very much enjoyed the lovely house, the music, the very clean room, the comfortable bed, the colibris in the beautiful garden and the friendliness of the people who run the posada!
