Howard Johnson Hotel Boutique Recoleta

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

A great choice if you're looking for a nice simple hotel in BA. Good, spacious and clean rooms. Room service is a bit below my expectations but you can live with it. Quite close to Recoleta (cinemas, restos, shops, museums), convenient location close tu financial and business districts, malls, etc. A very good cost-benefit equation with this accommodation. Recommended specially to business travelers.

Very spacious rooms, good working wi-fi, a complete breakfast and well located on a quiet street in the recoleta area. The showers have excelent water pressure. The hotel itself is very quiet (I thought there were very few guests but I was proved wrong at breakfast) and checkin and checkout services were very prompt. A great option for business or turism in the recoleta area.

Excellent room - large and quiet. Very helpful and friendly staff who spoke good English. Breakfast was excellent. The hotel is located away a bit further from Recoleta Plaza than other hotels but is close enough (5 minute walk). So it has a bit more of a 'local' feel. Would happily return.

Nice boutique hotel in Recoleta - very nice neighborhood. Upon early check-in -- directly from the airport we were offered upgraded rooms and were able to get in right away. From the beginning Max at the front desk was extremely helpful, as were other front desk staff. Thanks to to Marina for the great recommendation to the Piazzola Tango show. It was a great show, the dinner was good, tango lessons fun and it was good value for the price.

I travelled with my wife and 2 kids (7 and 5 years old) and the double room was very good, we have enough space, very clean and good service. The staff knowlegable about Buenos Airs and very helpful. Quality vs Price is a very good option.

Our one night stay at the Howard Johnston was great. Nice quiet neighbourhood. Hotel was clean and efficient. Staff were some of the best we have ever experienced anywhere. Especially front desk staff. Location is great for walking around Buenos Aries. $10 cab ride to cruise terminal. About $65 Cnd. From airport

This is a very good place in a good location in Recoleta. It is well maintained, clean and good Internet connection (I was able to watch a couple of movies in Netflix without any problems). The service staff at the hotel are very courteous, very nice and always willing to help you. I definitely would come back to this hotel a hundred times.

We have booked very last minute the evening of our travel to Buenos Aires. We eventually decided for Recoleta and we would stay again in this neighborhood since is central to all the city and we had better feeling than anyone else. Howard Johnson is a "no frill - no surprise" hotel and we appreciated staff courtesy (good concierge service) and room size. By the way it was quiet bcz the street has little traffic and windows are good. Breakfast just fine and filling our need and lifestyle with the exeption of fruit juice, a bit odd in taste and consistency. The hotel as an almost non esistant "public area" as clearly stated in the website and is a small hotel. Few restaurants nearby.

In the US, Howard Johnson does not have the best Rep. Think Again. Try this one out. In Buenos Aires, this property is small but a quality product. We got there late and they welcomed us by name. Clean, comfortable, Nice neighborhood. Try the restaurant on the corner.

I haven't really stayed at many Howard Johnson hotels in the United States, I've had good experiences with this brand overseas. So when I was looking for a hotel in Recoleta this one stood out. I really have to compliment the staff that work there, especially Marina. When I got to the hotel she was very friendly and sociable and immediately helped me to find things to do there and around the city. Despite the fact that she obviously worked long hours, she was always super helpful and made me feel at home. The breakfast was included in my room rate and was very substantial. Pastries, yogurt, cereal, coffee, juice, cheese, deli meat, and fresh fruit...they had scrambled eggs, but they were a bit too watery for me. But I love that they serve breakfast until 1030am because I'm always slow to crawl out of bed. In the back area of the ground floor (planta baja) they have a small pool and on the other side a few exercise machines. There wasn't that much equipment so I ended up running outside, which is nice. The hotel is located between Santa Fe and Las Heras, and only a block away from Callao, which are all major streets in Argentina. So it's pretty easy to find transportation, restaurants, etc. I'm vegetarian and liked going to Green Eat on Santa Fe near Callao. It's also very close to El Ateneo, a famous bookstore that was constructed out of a theater. In summary, I wouldn't call this a 5 star hotel, but with the customer service, location in Recoleta, breakfast, affordable price and proximity to other areas, I recommend this hotel!
