My wife and I just checked out of this dump, yesterday. We were taken in by others accounts of the romontic notions of past grandour. We didn´t find it so. This once fine mansion is in sad disrepair with peeling paint, a non-functioning elevator and nightly power-outages leaving you sweating in 35 C humid BA. The non-English speaking staff explained...

We spent two nights at the Hotel Lion d'Or in July and enjoyed our stay. The hotel is an old embassy, which is pretty cool, and they still have the original elevator and beautiful staircase.

I thought it was very good value for Buenos Aires, considering that I was able to get a private room in Recoletta, within an easy walk of the cemetary. The old building is lovely and has a lot of personality. I was staying in a single room, which was an enclosed area on the roof with other enclosed single rooms...

The old building and ricketty old lift is amazing! The location, a few mins from the cemetary is great. Exremely cheap and clean although the room we had was very dark, overlooking a wall which made it much darker, and the bathroom was tiny especially the shower! It didn't matter too much as we didn't spend too much time here....

Staying in Recoleta

Neighbourhood Profile
Recoleta
Characterised by the French-style mansions which are the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this neighbourhood is an experience like no other in Buenos Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll also find a rich cultural scene centred on the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library, and the Recoleta Cultural Center; as well as some great shopping spots, like the Buenos Aires Design Mall with an artists' fair set up in Plaza Francia every weekend.
