Hotel Tip

If you are visiting on a weekend, visit the artisan market, aka the “Hippie Fair,” a few blocks away. There are mimes and acrobats — great for people-watching. –Trish Mercer Columbus, Georgia

This is an exceptionally fine hotel--we were a family with three rooms, several of which were upgraded and were exceptional and lovely. The service was excellent, location superb, and we could not have been happier.

Truly a Classic Hotel of a Bygone Era

By: TravelBug

Reviewed on: 24 Mar 2017

A "bygone era" does not mean this hotel is old fashioned, but presently there are so many trendy hotels that just miss the mark. This is the Real Deal. It is a large hotel but you do not have that sense at all. Service is personalized and exceptional. Our Junior Suite room was spacious and the bathroom comfortable. I loved the T.V. over the bathtub. And Hermès toiletries are always appreciated, wherever you go! And as a Virtuoso client, we enjoyed some very nice perks. The lobby areas are old worldly elegant but not stuffy. The breakfast buffet was plentiful and the ambiance of the L'Orangerie was perfect. The cold luncheon buffet was also delicious. We did have dinner in the bar one night, but the food did not compare with the lunch or breakfast. Bar food is bar food, for the most part. The hotel is located in Recoleta which is the nicest part of Buenos Aires, in my opinion. It reminded me a bit of the upper east side in N.Y.: tree lined streets, luxury shops and nice restaurants.

Couldn’t have had a better time at this spectacular hotel! The suite was lovely and staff was attentive and polished. Huge shout out to the concierge staff and Esperanza in particular. When birthday plans fell crashing down she salvaged the evening on the spur of the moment and managed to organize a reservation at a terrific restaurant that made for a truly memorable evening. Hats off for making the effort and for that delish surprise birthday cake!!!

First hotel

By: Argentina

Reviewed on: 21 Feb 2019

The hotel was very impressive, top quality everything; the only thing I'd change is to not book a suite for only my husband and I, it wasn't necessary really. If we had gone with our young adult daughter, then it would've made complete sense. The price per night is high and if you're exploring the city and not enjoying the hotel to the fullest, it's better to find a lower price room.
