We are always treated like family, this time the owner, Ernesto, invited us to have coffee and cakes with him. Everybody always makes us feel special, welcome and everyone is so helpful. The suite was spacious and very clean with a great view. The bed was very comfortable. This really is our home away from home in BsAs.

Positives include excellent customer service by reception, a 24 hour access to tea and coffee in the breakfast room, use of one computer and free wifi.

They hand write all your credit card information on a piece of paper. The pre-charge $300 for incidentals. They cancel the charge if there is no issue with the room after you leave. So I do not understand why they need to write CC info. I find this a very risky practice and therefore would not recommend this hotel.

This hotel is located in the city-end of Recoleta (not the quiet, leafy, beautiful side). The hotel itself is ok, simple, modern and comfortable. Don't expect anything amazing or impressive, and don;t expect to be in the best part of Recoleta.

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.
