The Esplendor is an easy walk to the Buenos Aires Fine-Arts museum, which has a notable stock of French Impressionist paintings. Even closer is Plaza Francia, which has an arts & crafts market on weekends that I think is much better than the Plaza Serrano market (Francia has jewelry & art made by local artists; Serrano features cheap mass-produced leather...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 25 November 2016 via mobile

As I said in my previous review, I returned to this cozy hotel. Again I found the sane features described previously. Amazing staff, well located, clean, spacious room and affordable. I strongly recommend this hotel if you want something like a boutique atmosphere paying around US$ 120 in one of the most beautiful area in Buenos Aires. I repeated it....

This was my first time in Buenos Aires and I cannot imagine a better location from which to explore the city. The hotel itself is unpretentious, clean and well-maintained. The staff is warm,welcoming and tolerant of my exceedingly poor Spanish. I would gladly return.

My husband and I stayed here during the Buenos Aires portion of our trip to Argentina in December 2016. The location was perfect for us - very close to the Recoleta Cemetery, but also easy to get a taxi or walk to other neighborhoods and sites. The hotel was clean and modern.

Staying in Recoleta

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.

“If you are arriving at EZE, the international airport, and you want to reach the Esplendor cheaply, take the Manuel Tienda Leon bus line to its main stop downtown (near the Torre Monumental). To catch the Leon bus, you will find a booking booth in the airport just beyond your exit from baggage claim. The Leon airport-departure bus stop is just out the door. You can walk from the downtown Leon bus stop to the Esplendor in about 20 minutes; not bad if you don't have too much baggage. You can also walk from the Esplendor to the Teatro Colon, the famous opera house, which has a good (but not cheap) Tango show just one door south. If your time in Buenos Aires is limited, try the hop on/hop off bus. It's not cheap but it does take you to most of the iconic buildings and neighborhoods that you'll want to see. You can catch this bus at its stop #22 (Plaza Francia), or at stop #23 at Ave. Quintana, just 40 paces east of the little tourist info office on that street, which is maybe a five minute walk south from the Esplendor.”
