Very well located hotel, within easy walking distance of the famous Necropolis where people like Evita Peron are interred. We had two days staying at this hotel, the first one marred by the failure of the airline to deliver our baggage either on our arrival in Buenos Aires or before our departure for a trip to Iguazu. The management and staff at the Mio were terrific in assisting us overcome the problems and are to be highly commended. One can always pick on things that need attention, but overall everything was of a high standard and we would stay again when next in Buenos Aires
Heard some nice things about this place from friends and travel agent but was disappointed. The staff, ambience, amenities and breakfast were quite nice - but the room had too many unresolved problems.
The location is excellent, near to good shops, restaurants and some touristic attractions. The decoration is modern and very nice. The breakfast is very good and all staff very friendly. We had a room with terrace and private jacuzzi for 3 nights, costing U$ 400.00 per night. The room size is excellent, the bed comfortable and quality of bed sheets and towels is very good. The disappointments are all related to maintenance and cleanness demonstrating big deterioration and lack of supervision. Some of the issues were: - air condition in room does not cool, even set at 18C. -just hot water in the shower - impossible to set cold water (probably faucet defect). -the water from shower runs thru all bathroom floor due to bad insulation on the glass door and wall. -no AC on floor/elevator hall -it looks like a sauna. We were told that AC was off in those areas due to AC demand on rooms (which also did not cool). -the terrace was never cleaned, neither the jacuzzi - we did by ourselves in order to use it. -the jacuzzi deck in poor condition, danger to use. -cockroach on terrace and jacuzzi. The deck and floor were dirty by pigeon´s dirty and rest of cigarettes from other guests....it seems that they never clean it; that the terrace is not part of the room. -some faucets in jacuzzi are broken and disassembling. -all garden and plant pots in the terrace and also in the restaurant terrace are careless. -house keeping very weak (i.e. dirty glasses are not cleaned, dirty floor, issues on bathroom daily cleaning, etc.) Our complaints (we did for some of the issues) were well received by hotel staff, but it was clear that they did not have the tools and resources to fix the complaints. It seems that hotel is deteriorating due to lack of maintenance including good house keeping. It needs investments and good effective supervision. It was very frustrating considering the amount we paid. It makes you feel that the hotel has no consideration for its guests, even though staff are friendly.
Endorsing other recent reviews . Location excellent and Recoleta is a great location if it is your first visit to BA. Rooms are spacious, well at least 401 was, and great design. Far too dark and no way to have better natural light as curtains fixed in place, and of course you would be over-looked if they were opened anyway. But there is a way to improve this. Gym is neat......albeit not extensive. Breakfast absolutely fine......waiting staff very attentive too. Desk staff were efficient . Our problem came with using their car service. Don’t use it. We ordered a pick up for 6.10. After cajoling twice it arrived 25 minutes late. We paid the hotel directly as we wanted certainty for our trip to the airport, So an expensive $89 for a clapped out vehicle not worthy to hire and the hotel should not be contemplating to use. Of course the journey to the airport is horrendous and requires 2 hours in any car .....but there is no excuse for the hotel taking your money , twice the rate of other standard cabs, and providing a late pick up AND a ridiculous vehicle. And no explanation given. PS if you want a cab FROM the airport go to Terminal A and INSIDE use one of the Services on offer there. Never Never use outside terminal pick-up’s
After 5 nights at Mio Buenos Aires, I can say that it wouldn’t be my top choice for a return visit. Pros: Impeccable location in the fashionable Recoleta neighborhood, just a block from the world-famous cemetery. Ample breakfast with cooked-to-order options. Beautiful design — if you don’t look too closely. Cons: That beautiful design is clearly starting to fray around the edges, with worn upholstery, dirty carpets and scratched furniture. Feels like the home of a rich aunt who’s getting old and losing interest. Staff are friendly but scarce; I often came in to find no one at the front desk. Overall: If you’re a fan of high-design boutique hotels, you’d be well advised to shop around.
I have booked Mio for my Honeymoon, for two days stay in Buenos Aires and besides the well know hotels we decided to go for Mio and we loved it. The room is amazing, stunning decoration, good bed, and the bathtub is something else, the only problem in the room is the blackout from the curtains, need some improvement. But, nothing to disapoint me although I suggest a better setup for the breakfast, besides that everything were great, the staff, the location, the hotel. Amazing!
This is a great little hotel in a good location with fabulous staff. We were here for three nights. The rooms was really good, big and airy with a shower and bathroom. The front desk team were the most knowledgeable and helpful hotel team I’ve ever come across. They couldn’t have been more helpful, whether it was booking a tango show or advising on restaurants or managing flights when your airline has gone on strike. These guys were great.
We choose to split our stay in Buenos Aires into two areas, Palermo and Ricoleta. The Mio was our choice for Ricoleta and what a fantastic choice. My wife exclaimed that this was her fav of all of our trips and we have stayed at the best around the world. Beautiful boutique hotel, large gorgeous rooms with carved tubs and a fantastic staff. Great breakfast however, sadly, the restaurant has closed. We forgot my wife's iPad when we checked out and the staff found it and is returning it to. us in Panama. Great walking area. This is the place to stay!
Stayed in a deluxe room with funky (if uncomfortable) huge bath in the middle of the room. Small boutique hotel with great service and new, well-appointed rooms. Small niggles - in this price bracket I’d expect bottled water to be replaced, not just two bottles for my whole stay. Also please don’t charge for Nespresso capsules used. Never experienced that anywhere else on Earth and makes you look cheap. Guys at the front desk were extremely helpful and friendly Great location too!
Mio Buenos Aires met my expectations. Located at Recoleta and just a couple of blocks away from the famous cemetery and other attractions. We also went on foot to MALBA. Its a small boutique hotel with a small gym, indoor pool, steam bath and a massage spa. Room is beautiful decorated and the wooden made bath tube is just perfect. The only con is the shower that "floods" the entire bathroom. Breakfast included is good (don't miss the benedictine eggs). Helpful staff and nice athmosphere. I would definitely come back!
