This hotel is very charming boutique hotel. It is well located near the cemetery that has a lot of cafes and restaurants. You can walk pretty much everywhere or grab a cab easily. My main issues with the hotel are the following for the price you pay: 1) inconsistent service as I only got turn down service 1 out of 4 nights I stayed there; 2) breakfast is exactly the same everyday - scrambled eggs, sausage/bacon, and potatoes with onions. Pastries, breads, cheeses all the same. Very basic breakfast for the price bracket; and 3) they give you a welcome drink and 20% off at restaurants but if you try to use it you get very different takes on how and on what to use it. For example, i ordered something at the restaurant and tried to use it at the time and was told no that the 20% applied only on drinks during happy hour. So I go to use it on a drink at happy hour only to be told that it has to be food. I told the bartender what I had been told and my confusion and then he berated me and told me that the drink was already discounted because it was worth a lot more. I'm from NYC and have traveled the world and I know what drinks are worth. I was disputing the differing information on how to use the coupon and NOT the value of the drink. It was very condescending and rude of him. They also have a very short staffed front desk. Normally to talk to anyone there it requires a 5-10 minute wait. There is usually 2 of them there and even if one is free he is doing something and will not help you. Even the doorman seemed apologetic at the lack of service at the front desk. I think for the value of the room I could probably go to another hotel in BA for better service. Melia could and should do better.

We stayed three nights and really enjoyed the hotel. It's on a good street with some excellent restaurants. Neighborhood is nice for walking and its easy to get to the park and the cemetery, which definitely is a must see. We even walked to the Plaza downtown. Hotel is clean, quiet and very comfortable. Gentlemen at the front desk are very helpful. We had a large room that even had a separate living room area and looked out to the buildings behind. Bathroom is great, with a nice tub to soak in. Next time I would ask for a street view. We would certainly stay here again.

This older boutique hotel offers a quiet and pampered experience in Old BA. The rooms are perhaps a little warn, but that adds to the mid last century ambience. The staff are friendly and accommodating. The breakfast is a delight. With only 4 rooms on each floor, its very quiet. The location is fantastic.

I really enjoyed my stay in the hotel. Staff is friendly, speaks several languages, and the rooms are nicely decorated. You feel at home, and sleep was excellent thanks to the silence provided. Breakfast does not propose any exceptional food, but it's locally made, so quite enjoyable, especially when you have live piano. You have great restaurants walking distance. I highly recommend.

I enjoyed my stay at this boutique hotel. Confortable and clean non street view room, Very helpful staff, Good breakfast and excellent location. Quiet and close to nice restaurants, shopping malls and downtown. The only issue was the elevator. Something broke while we were going down with a bad stroke and it was out of service two or three times during the next 2 days. They had an employees elevator though that we could use.

I stayed here multiple times in September, as I used Buenos Aires as my hub for traveling throughout South America. Very quaint hotel, beautiful place, in Recoleta, which is a very nice area of BA. Above all, I'd say the staff made my stays even better, always attentive to my needs, good suggestions for dining, excursions, etc. Would, and definitely will stay here again. Your will be only a few block from the Recoleta cemetery, which is a must see if you are in BA...many restaurants, and some fine shopping is very close by. I found no down-side to this property, would highly recommend.

We absolutely loved this place! The location was great in a very safe area. They have a scrumptious bakery 1 min waking distance from the hotel and a great inexpensive lunch place a few doors down. I can't say enough about how helpful and friendly every single staff member that we talked to was! The rooms were spacious and comfortable with good linens and towels as well as good a/c control. Lots of pillows and beautiful furniture and great water pressure in the bathroom with a versatile shower. The hotel itself was beautiful and clean. We would stay there again any time!!

Our first time in South America. The staff at this hotel changed our money, spent a LONG TIME going over the city maps and telling us where to visit, greeting us by name each time we came in/out, helping with dinner suggestions and reservations and making us feel at home. The hotel itself is gorgeous, we had a beautiful, spacious room with a modern bathroom (#68) The breakfast was nothing extraordinary - fairly European style - but the bar was lovely and I'm still surprised it wasn't 3x the price.

Great location, elegant hotel, full breakfast and friendly staff. Rooms a bit on the small side but within the norm. Lobby quite beautiful and filled with history, each room has its own character. Would recommend staying here and will come again.

Best location in tony area of Buenos Aires, with excellent staff and the feel of a boutique hotel. Much better value than cookie cutter hotels in the area. Also located near good restaurants, both formal and informal, as well as numerous cafes.
