We were amazed with our gorgeous suite. What impressed us were the luxurious touches such as chandeliers in both the sitting room and the bedroom, huge flat screen TV's in both, as well as great closets, a tTV in the bathtub, sumptuous couches, fresh fruit on the coffee table, and plush towels. The hotel breakfast buffet was elegant, the staff...

We stayed here two different times in March. Both times the check-in was fast and efficient. The bell staff spoke perfect English and well managed our many bags going to to different rooms. On our first stay we were upgraded into a small suite, the room was well appointed, fresh, and clean. We loved crawling into bed after an overnight...

I will start by saying that every one of the previous five times I've stayed in BA, I have done so at the Four Seasons. This past trip I decided to stay nearby, at Alvear Palace, also very conveniently located. I must say, from the world-class restaurant (I say world-class, not just among the better restaurants locally) to the old...

I was warned that some of these issues could happen, but really didn´t think that a member of the Leading Hotels would be the one. First, the room wasn´t ready when we arrived (7 pm).

This is a glamourous hotel, very stylish with very helpful staff. However, if you want a good room, this is the wrong place. The rooms are small and have but one chair to sit (even a double room). The minuscule working desk does not allow you to work that much. Besides, it is an old building with all problems of...

BIG disappointment! We were given a smelly room on our arrival. We were tired and went out, they were dehumidifying down the hall. That night we insisted on a room change.

This is a wonderful hotel with great service, old style elegance and a terrific location. Rooms are spacious, well appointed and extremely quiet. We enjoyed both the roof top and the lobby bar. It also has a very nice gym. We could walk to many attractions from the hotel, and some of the shopping around it is exceptional.

Neighbourhood Profile
Recoleta
Characterised by the French-style mansions which are the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this neighbourhood is an experience like no other in Buenos Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll also find a rich cultural scene centred on the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library, and the Recoleta Cultural Center; as well as some great shopping spots, like the Buenos Aires Design Mall with an artists' fair set up in Plaza Francia every weekend.
