Melia Recolta - Great place to Stay

We stayed at the Melia Recoleta Plaza Hotel during our recent visit to BA. Great location, close to restaurants, shopping and attractions. The rooms was nice size, clean, & quite, The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel has a theme around Evita because this was her home for a few years in the 1940's, so it make interesting reading and understanding the history. Would certainly stay here again on our next visit to BA.

Great hotel

We had a few nights at this hotel whilst staying in Buenos Aires. I have to say that the hotel is in an amazing location in Recoleta and within walking distance of the famous cemetery. At the moment due to the devaluation of their currency it’s cheap to get a cab and it’s only a quick drive to all the other to see places in this city.
The staff were very professional and always helpful. The only thing I could find to criticise was that once you left the ground floor it seemed a little dated or could do with a refurb. Saying that the room was clean, comfortable and certainly met our needs. Would recommend a visit and to stay.

Great Hotel, Great Location, Excellent Staff

Fantastic hotel in a great neighborhood. Recoleta is a really good location for tourists. All the staff we encountered were really friendly and helpful but the front desk staff, particularly Juan Pablo and Francisco were really excellent. They helped enhance our stay in Buenos Aires by providing us with helpful recommendations for restaurants and places to visit.
The hotel also arranged airport pickup for us and that worked perfectly.
Would thoroughly recommend this hotel.
