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.

A beautiful, classic hotel. Ideally situated in BA, a great place to stay. It does get busy with weddings and events on the weekends.

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.

Lap of Luxury

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!!!
