The room was nothing as pictured, not even close. The wifi did not work at all. The restaurant was terrible and the gym was nothing as described. Huge disappointment and I will not stay here again on business.
Note: This is a review of Hotel Reconquista GARDEN, which is where I was sent from the Hotel Reconquista Luxor a few blocks away when they didn't have my reservation properly taken care of. The hotel has some classy aspects, with spiffy modern-looking elevators and a very nice bathroom that has some very nice fixtures. This is marred, however, by above average noise levels, as I heard all of my neighbors and everyone in the hallway. Someone going into their room for any one of several rooms near mine sounds like they're coming into my room. In addition, there was construction work that could be heard all morning. Another complaint is lack of Internet access in the rooms. There is no Wi-Fi in the rooms, only in the lobby. They gave me a network cable to hook to my laptop. OK, fine, but I can't get a network connection when I plug it in. The faceplate to the "network" jack broke and I was then able to see that there were only 4 wires connected to the Cat 5 jack. In other words, it was for a telephone, not a computer network. Even the cheesiest hotel I've stayed in in Argentina has had Wi-Fi in the rooms, so I see this as a big deficiency. The room's view was only of an urban parking lot, certainly unimpressive. The beds were average for Argentine hotels, and the HVAC above average (and included a remote control.) The location is useful for people walking around Florida (tourist shopping areas) and for easy access to Subte, which is only a block away.
The Hotel as a whole was good, but being rated with four stars by many reviews, i was thrown off by a few things. The first thing that was a turn off is that this hotel does not have a lobby. Photos of the hotel that seem lobby like are actually of the second floor restaurant area, which didn't seem open aside from breakfast. Don't let the pictures deceive you either, this hotel is on the medium to small size. There are 9 floors, and maybe 6 rooms on each floor. The other aspect I didn't like too much was the lack of room service / staff. At night the staff dwindled down a lot and I wasn't sure anyone was in even in the hotel other than the front desk employee. The room we stayed in was a king size bed room, and an iron was not provided. The internet was very spotty at best, which made using wireless impossible. The polite staff was accommodating in this regard and did provide an ethernet cable when asked (a very dirty cable at that). Other than the few negatives, the staff was polite, and many were bilingual, if you needed to speak in english. The free breakfast included with the rooms was pretty impressive. A full spread of fruits, and various pastries, eggs, cheeses, meats, juices and coffee were provided. If you are looking to stay in micro center, this hotel is located in a good spot. It is not particularly exciting at night and very tourist heavy during the day. If you desire a more authentic experience, you will certainly find yourself taking the metro or cabs a lot while staying here. Fortunately plenty of cabs and metro lines run through this area. I wouldn't return again to this hotel, but don't think it is the worst place to stay either. For a low-medium budget traveler, it is a totally acceptable stay, but my expectations were a little too high for what was in store.
Nice hotel, rooms and beds are small compared to what we are normally used to in the states. good location and you can walk to a lot of interesting places. It is about a 15 peso taxi ride to Recolata and overall we enjoyed the stay.
