We spent 4 nights at the Casa Calma in March 2012. My good impression started even before we booked when is received immediate responses by email to all my inquiries. The staff also assisted us in booking reservations for an estancia outside of buenos aires and booking transport to that estancia and to and from the airport. The room we booked online (nonrefundable due to the better price) was listed as "standard". It had every amenity we would have wanted and more. I wonder how much better the next level of room could be. We had a spacious room (there are only 2 to a floor) and a jetted tub, separate glass enclosed shower, double vessel sinks, and separte toilet room. There was a flat screened tv will a multitude of English language channels, including many movie channels. Only thing missing was English CNN, a staple in most foreign hotels. I guess if there was one thing to change it would be that there is no view from the window. However, the hotel makes the most of the problem by screening the windows with outdoor vines. Not a bad solution. Location was fine although it is apparent that the neighborhood may not be entirely safe as the hotels keep their doors locked at all times and open them when you come to the door. You can walk from the hotel to the subway reasonably quickly (a few blocks). You can easily walk to the downtown through the pedestrian shopping street (Florida). There are restaurants within about 6 blocks, but not many. The hotel, however, has recommendations and will book for you and will call cabs, etc. All in all, it met or exceeded all the expectations that were raised by reading reviews on Tripadvisor.
