4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

My husband and I recently spent 3 nights at this hotel and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room was relatively spacious, ( perhaps a little bit drab), good powerful shower, and the breakfasts were good with plenty of choice. Cereals, fruit, cooked food, variety of breads, cheeses, sweet things etc. They will make you a speciality coffee if you ask for one. Couple of options they charge for - omelettes and eggs benedict. The hotel is in a good location, near the cemetery, shops, bars, cafes etc. Also in a good position to walk to many of the attractions. NB - there is a good restaurant right next door called Fervor - it is busy and fairly expensive, but it is good. We used the terraced lounge area and plunge pool on the roof for a few hours one morning as we were exhausted from all the exploring we had done over the last 3 weeks in S America! that was an added bonus. The staff on reception were very helpful with any questions we had.

Loved staying at this beautiful hotel! The service is brilliant, staff assisted us in booking our tango shows with brilliant advice. Breakfast consisted of a wide spread. Location is good... we managed to walk around the district with no hassle. Easy to grab a cab to the different districts. Just a note the plumbing is shared therefore you can hear the water running between rooms. Sad that I had to leave 😕 hope to return to this beautiful city!

The hotel is located at Recoleta near wonderful restaurants, shopping malls and superb parks to walk and museums to visit. The staff is not only helpful but goes over and beyond to make your life easier. We traveled with friends who visited Buenos Aires for the first time and were very happy with the experience. What we really like about the hotel is that you are not a room number; they call you by your name so that makes the experience different. Highly recommend the hotel!

This is a seven story hotel in the lovely Recoleta District. We had a very pleasant large room, with a pillow menu available for those that need a certain kind of pillow to sleep well. The bathroom was small but more than adequate. The morning breakfast is terrific - great buffet. There is a spa on the top floor for relaxing, soaking, or massage. We found the location to be ideal and at night there was no noise whatsoever, so we slept very soundly. we had an in-closet safe. The front desk staff are very helpful and speak English. Would recommend this hotel for those not wanting a large busy hotel atmosphere.

What a pleasant stay we had - we were visiting Buenos Aires for the first time and chose this hotel to enjoy the ambience, and the area... and this is exactly what we had. The hotel reception is extremely helpful, very quick and efficient at all times. The daily breakfast made in their own kitchen is good quality and available until 11:00am every day. They are not really pressuring you to leave if you are there to keep eating/drinking to enjoy. The rooms are comfortable and with a great bed. The area around the hotel is so beautiful and top-notch area in Buenos Aires, and we enjoyed our strolls in the neighbourhood, the parks and other parts of the city which is all walkable if you have the time. Great stay!!! Would love to go back.

Hospitality 2nd to none. Great location. Incredible staff. Large rooms. Eva (Evita) Perron actually lived in this hotel for two years. Picture attached is actually the footboard from her bed. This hotel is a definite must.

We spent four nights in this charming hotel. The hotel has so much character, you feel transported to another era and place. The staff have been extremely helpful and nothing, including breakfast for a very early departure, has seemed to be too much trouble. Although it was disappointing to find the bar and lounge closed for renovations, we have had a fabulous stay and if we are lucky enough to ever come back to Buenos Aires, this is the hotel we will book.

We liked the small hotel and found the staff pleasant. But this was the 2nd Melia hotel in Argentina with no (or at Iguazu, only 1) English language tv station, even for news. We found that surprising and disappointing. Good breakfast included.

Our four nights at this hotel were very enjoyable indeed. Staff at all levels were very professional and friendly. The food in the restaurant, while a little slowish in coming out of the kitchen, was well worth the wait. The breakfast offerings are quite good and varied. My wife and I will be back as this property checks all the boxes as does the location.

This hotel is located in the hart of Recoleta, probably the most aristocratic neighborhood of Buenos Aires, where history and wealth have merged leaving an everlasting impression in its refine architecture. The owner of this hotel, Mr. Lafuente, a charismatic attorney form Spain, often visits the premises to make sure that everything remains to the perfection. If this were not enough to make this hotel the best option, the fact that Eva Peron lived for two years (1942-1944) in this property, before becoming Peron's wife, is another reason to make your stay more than interesting. From the front desk to the restaurant, employees make you feel that you are special, always an smile in their faces and helpful attitude. Definitely this is the hotel that we are coming back on our next trip to Argentina.
