There are several issues with this hotel. Firstly the basics - the Internet connection hardly worked the entire week we were there and when it did it was slow. Just rebooting the router every time we complained obviously never solved the problem. When you are trying to research places to go and coordinate with friends this is an issue. The... More

Our studio had a great layout for a family - the bedroom was separated by a wall from the living area, so we had our own space once the kids were asleep (one on a rollaway bed, one on the sofa bed. Finishes were a little scuffed and worn and lights are all bright fluorescents in the room but this... More

Hotel Design suites was a convenient location. Reasonable walking distance to Recoleta cemetery or San Telmo and plaza de Mayo or around 60/80 pesos by taxi. Not far to several nice cafes and restaurants. Room was well appointed, everything I needed. Microwave fridge crockery and cutlery were useful and so was the spa bath at the end of a long... More

I enjoyed my 3 night stay at the hotel. It has a very modern decor and feel. The staff were all friendly and professional. The buffet breakfast was delicious every morning (who would complain with cake for breakfast?). The bathroom was very nice, everything was clean and comfortable. It has great access to shopping and many tourist areas. I would... More

Check-in was a very positive experience. In view of the early arrival at Buenos Aires, check-in was at approximately 9 am. A pleasant surprise: the room was available! The room was spacious and comfortable. The bath room on the other hand, was quite small; the jacuzzi was really a tiny affair. WiFi was good and free. Breakfast was good though... More

Cash was stolen from my hotel safe while I was visiting the city. The hotel was useless in helping me figure this out. Definitely don't trust their staff. The rooms were "OK" and the location is reasonable.

Very nice bathroom. Big room. Great shower head. Friendly staff. Very close to Parilla Pena which is fantastic. The floor was without carpeting which was not my favourite. A rug would have added more warmth to the room. No lotion included which was unusual. We preferred Palermo to stay in as far as neighbourhoods go.

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.
