We could not have done better
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

From the moment we arrived we were impressed and totally happy with the choice we made. The entire staff especially Facundo and Max at the door were exceptional with their knowledge and advice about the city. The room was elegant and clean. The only complaint is that our room had no view but it was sacrificed for the Jacuzzi tub on the patio. Breakfast was great. A great variety, fresh, and mimosa if you request it. I wish had a hotel this nice everywhere we traveled. The terrace on the top floor was great to relax and get some fresh air. The "pool" was an oversized hot tub with cold water but it made a fifth star and a nice water feature I suppose. If I ever come back this will be my first choice.

Enjoyed our stay!

My husband and I recently spent 3 nights at this hotel and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room was relatively spacious, ( perhaps a little bit drab), good powerful shower, and the breakfasts were good with plenty of choice. Cereals, fruit, cooked food, variety of breads, cheeses, sweet things etc. They will make you a speciality coffee if you ask for one. Couple of options they charge for - omelettes and eggs benedict. The hotel is in a good location, near the cemetery, shops, bars, cafes etc. Also in a good position to walk to many of the attractions. NB - there is a good restaurant right next door called Fervor - it is busy and fairly expensive, but it is good. We used the terraced lounge area and plunge pool on the roof for a few hours one morning as we were exhausted from all the exploring we had done over the last 3 weeks in S America! that was an added bonus. The staff on reception were very helpful with any questions we had.

Little gem

Loved staying at this beautiful hotel! The service is brilliant, staff assisted us in booking our tango shows with brilliant advice. Breakfast consisted of a wide spread. Location is good... we managed to walk around the district with no hassle. Easy to grab a cab to the different districts. Just a note the plumbing is shared therefore you can hear the water running between rooms.
Sad that I had to leave 😕 hope to return to this beautiful city!

Great hotel, great location, great staff!

The hotel is located at Recoleta near wonderful restaurants, shopping malls and superb parks to walk and museums to visit.

The staff is not only helpful but goes over and beyond to make your life easier. We traveled with friends who visited Buenos Aires for the first time and were very happy with the experience. What we really like about the hotel is that you are not a room number; they call you by your name so that makes the experience different.

Highly recommend the hotel!

Accommodating boutique hotel in Recoleta District
Reviewed 3 months ago

This is a seven story hotel in the lovely Recoleta District. We had a very pleasant large room, with a pillow menu available for those that need a certain kind of pillow to sleep well. The bathroom was small but more than adequate. The morning breakfast is terrific - great buffet. There is a spa on the top floor for relaxing, soaking, or massage. We found the location to be ideal and at night there was no noise whatsoever, so we slept very soundly. we had an in-closet safe. The front desk staff are very helpful and speak English. Would recommend this hotel for those not wanting a large busy hotel atmosphere.
