We stayed 4 nights in what was sold as a "deluxe suite" in the Deco Recoleta Hotel. The check in process was a bit painful, but we got there in the end. We took the tiny lift to the fifth floor. Our suite was spacious and comfortable, but dated. Everything worked fine, and the housekeeping was attentive. The hotel did some laundry for us and it was back the same day. We could have got it done much more cheaply at one of the nearby laundries, but we went for the convenience.
The breakfast in the hotel was ok. The area is great for restaurants. Try Floreria Atlantico just around the corner. It is a "hidden bar" in the basement of a florist shop. Great fun.
If you don't want to pay top dollar for a flash hotel, this is not a bad place to stay.
Location was a short walk from main square, so that was good. Room was clean, basic white, no art, wooden floor looked new. Bathroom needed painting, dark stripe around floor, possibly from a flood? Carpet in hallway was filthy. Reception area was friendly, but often loud music or podcasts were playing, very noisy while waiting in lobby for tour pick up. Elevators very small, needed two for my husband and I to get us and our luggage up to our room. For the price, it was ok, but may be worth spending a few extra pesos!
I travel to BA every year during the first of January. I have stayed previously at this hotel then named OWN. This is the same hotel just more problems. We were two couples and did not get checked in until early evening. Immediately I went to shower and the faucet fell off. It was completely stripped. We were given another room were the toilet seat was broken. The next day we went for showers..no water. Front desk advised we would have water by mid afternoon. For 4 days none of our condiments for coffee in the room were replaced.The breakfast was meager and several mornings had to ask staff to replenish the food. One morning the warm milk was spoiled. We then decided to take breakfast out. There were more issues daily, either maintenance or service. While trying to check out to catch our flight, the computer would not work. A frustrating experience. There are many hotels in this competitive market, and will be looking for another one next year.
We were here 2 nights as part of an Exodus Tour of South America. The hotel is ok, in need of a bit of refreshing. But it was clean enough and the beds were comfortable and the room was quite big.
Breakfast was very good with cold meats and cereals, breads and cakes. Eggs could be cooked to order too. There was even mate (a kind of South American tea) on offer.
In a good position, far enough away from the noise of the city but close enough to walk to the main squares.
2 night stay. Reasonable location within a good walking distance of main sights. Approx 1 hour by car from Airport traffic depending. Good size rooms, en-suite, tv, kettle green tea, mini bar snacks. Break fast good. Free WiFi
Minor issues: Rooms tired Formica and laminate look, plumbing needs attention, no coffee or black tea in room, dirty kettle, very thin towels. Non-inspiring view. Bathroom walks dirty in need of painting.
Overall a reasonable choice but not 5 star
