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
Good hotel, very well located, but need to update the rooms. Old carpet, not enough outlets to power all devices. But very good shower. Used a suite, with comfortable siting area, but also the TVs need to be improved.
Worn down hotel in need of a renovation, in my room 707 the toilet seat in the bathroom was failing as moisture and cracked paint jointly had ruptured the MDF seat.
We stayed for 6 nights over St Patricks day - even on the 7th floor the noise level from the street was terrible.
Breakfast is a joke if you are used to even 3 star hotels - I would rate it Motel class.
I was on a two week business trip going from Argentina to Chile so I used the laundry service at the hotel Friday night 16th March.
My mistake was that I didn't check my new trousers after it was returned from laundry. (The trousers were bought new before our arrival)
I just removed the trousers from the hanger and packed them in my suitcase and then we checked out and flew to Santiago, Chile for another three days of business meetings.
During the meeting Monday morning my collegue noticed that my trousers were torn. I immediately contacted the hotel via email and sent them a photo of the damage.
I don’t expect that laundry service in a five star hotel would make such a mistake After two months of reminding them the hotel offered to give me a discount on my next stay (as if I would choose Melia again) and then to reimburse me. I sent my bank details, but I never got any money.
It’s not the cost of the trousers that is the issue. The issue is that I as a customer must be able to trust the services the hotel provides WITHOUT having to double check if the hotel have performed the service without damaging the clothes left in their care. In a five star hotel I would expect them to deliver this.
I will never stay at Melia again. Choose another hotel if you can.
If you are searching for comfort, downtown Buenos Aires, I strongly recommend this hotel! Very good and space room. TV service could be better. Improvement needed during check out: too long , and taxi services.
Location: very good, just a few block to Pacifico's mall. There's some pubs and restaurants just in front of the hotel. To the Floralis Generica it's about 15 minutes walking. Same to Puerto Madero.
Room: Excellent. Very cozy. Awesome bed.
Breakfast: Excellent, complete.
Staff: Very helpfull. Special regards to Luciano.
Problem: when I was at the hotel happenned a party at the convention center and it was way too loud to sleep.
General : recommend.
The room and location were excellent. Breakfast was better than average. Service was spotty - front desk and bell service were both very good, but doormen were indifferent, bordering on rude. In spite of that, we enjoyed our stay and would return.
