“Great location, friendly staff”
Reviewed 15 February 2012

My husbund and I stayed this hotel 4 nights. It is very central location and residential area. Staff are very polite and helpful. We stayed in a delux room, two king bed, large bathroom and was very clean. Bath towels were fine in the first day, but when they replaced them 2nd day, towels were too old, I called the reception and they immediately replaced them. Breakfast was very basic.

Room Tip: Small hotel, comfortable rooms

This was the perfect place to stay for our first two nights in Argentina. Good service - we arrived around 10am and our room was ready - large, comfortable rooms, excellent continental buffet breakfast, and a good location for exploring BA. It's not near the subte (subway) but the Recoleta cemetery is near by and if you have comfy shoes you can walk to many other sites, and hop in a taxi if it all gets too much. Free wifi - which we found all over Argentina - and relatively good internet speed compared to the south of the country. Safe neighbourhood, and several good restaurants within walking distance. There is a building site next door, but we were not disturbed by any noise from this.

We stayed here last year. The hotel was very clean, the price was good, and the food was excellent. Rooms were big and modern. Internet was a little slow.

First of all, travelers need to understand that this is NOT a resort hotel; it is a boutique hotel, so you will not be met by solicitous bellmen or be lounging next to a pool. The hotel is set in a nice neighborhood and a few blocks from the Recoleta Mall and cementery. The breakfast buffet is simple, but one can ask for say, a scrambled egg if desired. The cocierge are friendly and very helpful AND they take extra care to make sure that tourists are safe. Also, the boutique hotel atmosphere is very cozy and friendly and not crowded. The rooms aren't lavish nor large, but comfortable and clean.

The HJ boutique hotel recoleta is an awesome hotel. Great location, great service and nice clean rooms.

The staff even took note of an offhand comment on my checkout time and prepared breakfast to go for us.

I would highly recommend thus hotel.

We spent 10 weeks in South America and used Buenos Aires as a travel hub which meant three separate stays at HJ Recoleta.

The location is great, not far from the cemetary, and an easy 45 minutes walk into central BA. We stayed in a deluxe room which was modern and spacious. The bed was very comfortable and the room was fresh and well-appointed.

The staff were absolutely amazing, and provided a really personalised service.

One of the things about South America is that flight times can be in the middle of the night. We had booked a room but due to some flight issues, we arrived about 7am after an all nighter from elsewhere on the continent and we weren't booked in until that evening. No problem for the people at HJ Recoleta. Gave us immediate access to the room and then let us sleep for 10 hours without the merest hint of extra fees for early check-in. Also, one time when we flew out, we had to leave at 2am. Again, no problem organising cars and they even rang and reminded the car service while we were blissfully sleeping, to make sure it would definitely arrive on time.

The hotel also provides a couple of free internet access PC's which were very handy and had good internet access speeds.

A real haven, especially if your spanish is only average.

Room Tip: Pay a little extra and get a deluxe room

Stayed in Room 204 facing the swimming pool for three nights in Nov 2011. Had good sleep throughout, even though, there is a construction site next door. In the morning, I could hear distant drilling but not so much that it bothers me. Room is huge, clean with two queen beds, flat screen tv, FREE WIFI, bathtub and shower. Safe quiet street and within walking distance to nice restaurants esp. La Querencia, Recoleta cemetery etc., as long as you have a map but taking taxis are also cheap. Breakfast is ok and pretty standard. Airport transfer cost USD$50, organized by the hotel.

Maximillio is the best - always with a smile, helpful and friendly! Staff at reception speaks fluent English. Had issue checking out as hotel locked our traveling card when checked in (security bond), so had to use a different credit card. Didn't receive money back till one week later but staff were very helpful in resolving the issue.

Overall, very happy staying in this hotel and will definitely recommend! It was a good place to relax after all the hiking in Peru.
