    This Hotel Lied to us after a bad accident

    I have rated this hotel terrible to get attention. You will read why below. We stayed at this hotel over 2 years ago. Unfortunately my wife slipped on their wet patio floor (a slanted wet ramp with no warning or anti-slip strips) and broke her knee cap in half. Surgery in Buenos Aires, 2 more surgeries in USA, ruined our Antartica vacation, we had well over $60,000 in expenses and losses. Surgeries, flights, physical therapy, etc. My wife will never be able to have the same level of comfort or activity that she had before this terrible accident. After a year they offered to pay $5,000 which was absurd. The hotel is nice and clean and a good location. HOWEVER, as my wife lay in pain on their terrace floor waiting for transport to the hospital they assured us that any expenses resulting from the accident would be covered by the hotel. Anyone willing to choose another hotel to show support until the hotel and their attorney makes a more reasonable offer would be greatly appreciated. If you choose stay there, please consider making a statetment to their management about this injustice. Thank you and enjoy Buenos Aires.

    Very good experience

    I had my doubts initially about a "Howard Johnson" branded hotel--but they were put to rest upon my arrival. Attentive staff (they were expecting me) with excellent skills in English. Entire hotel has been recently refurbished. Everything looks and feels GOOD. Location: Only 3 blocks from the heart of the Recoleta district. Great cafes, etc. within easy walking distance.

    Entertainment tip: Short walk from hotel

    If you head down to the Recoleta mall, check out the street musicians that go by the name of Aqualactica. I've heard many over the years--and perhaps it was just the 'ticket' for the evening--but I really enjoyed their music (and bought the CD they had on offer).

    Buenos Aires Recoleta Hotel

    Nice people, Nice Staff, friendly. Hotel is okay for Couples or business less for family, since the Hotel is not soundsproof. Well located it is helpgull when it comes to go for a walk and visit the Area. Don´t use the map of the hotel it´s not well oriented as it shows South instead of North on a map, maybe a south American thing but it got me lost. P.S:Make sure to ask for your room to be made with the sign outside your door, otherwise the maid wont even consider cleaning it...

    Perfect

    Hotel location was perfect. Able to walk to many amazing restaurants and sites. Very safe. We were two women alone and had no problems walking around after dinner at night. Staff the best. Room nice, clean and comfortable. Breakfast buffet ok but needed more choices.

    Great hideaway with personal touch

    Hotel was a peaceful place after a busy day. Staff was always friendly and helpful, suggesting daytrips and excellent restaurants. We would choose it again!

    Casa Cruz had the most fabulous steak ever... we found many great eateries. DO NOT take the city bus tour ($16) which is in Spanish and English. The tour is not interesting and a waste of time. Need to find a single language, small group tour instead.

    bon rapport qualité / prix

    Bon séjour. Seul problème : l'isolation sonore par rapport à l'extérieur est moyenne, mais heureusement c'est dans une rue calme et sans passage la nuit.
