The Hotel Meliá works well for both leisure and business travelers, thanks to its convenient location near Calle Florida, its polished public spaces and its top-of-the-line conference center. The guestrooms are modern, decorated in a light, neutral color scheme, and they feature such mod cons as minibars, coffeemakers and flat-screen TVs, as well as full bathrooms with tubs. When you want to unwind, hit the hotel’s spa, which includes a heated pool, hydromassage, a sauna and a state-of-the-art gym. There are four dining options to choose from, including Terraza, where you can watch the city go by — glass of Malbec in hand — from one of the sidewalk tables.
In the Area
Take time to explore the varied neighborhoods of Buenos Aires. See tango dancers, artists and brightly colored tin houses in La Boca, café-hop in fashionable Recoleta, or wander the parks in Palermo. The hotel is also just a short walk from Calle Florida, the city’s main pedestrian street, which is lined with boutiques and restaurants. When hunger strikes, head to Sucre, renowned for its contemporary beef dishes, a must-try in Argentina. Check the calendar at Teatro Colon, one of the best concert venues in the world, for an evening of opera, ballet or classical music.
How to Get There
I arrived at 9 am and they charged me for the room offering an “upgrade” that wasn’t real
Location was good close to the office but there are other hotels near that are better
It was not too clean and I found a big cucaracha in the tub. Never again
Room was ok and most staffs are friendly and helpful. But one incident took 3 stars from my review.
Just visited the bar on lobby a little past 9pm, no staff was there and all staffs at frontdesk and the dining area(right next to the bar) seemed like they couldn’t see we were there. We waited a few minutes and asked the frontdesk staff if he can get someone and finally one waiter came. He was nice but it seemed he was not familiar with the bar so another lady came to help us order a drink. My husband ordered one Jameson on rock but the bottle there only had little left and finished when the lady started to pour to the measuring cup the second time. So he only got 1 cup and a few more drops(supposed to be 2 full cups)
She said”Oh finished.” Then SHE JUST LEFT. We thought maybe she went back to get another bottle but that was not the case, she just left and never came back. When we asked for check there was no discount or apologize. We paid the full amount because all the staffs there didn’t really speak English so we just didn’t see the point arguing. But it was absolutely DISGUSTING.
As soon as I arrived I met the friendly Rebora who did a great job throughout the days I was staying there, As oppose to the neutral posture of many Hotel clerks she was always helpful in every situation. It is nice hwen you are travelling.
