“Relax location in the heart of the city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2012

Maybe not really a Relais & Chateau but definetaly a good hotel: very well equiped rooms; Luxury establishment; From a service perspective: mixed feeling. Depending on the person you might get an extreme kind and professional service up to other persons who have a more distinct and non-service minded attitude. From a location pserspective, this hotel is very well located to be close to luxury shopping areas, being in a rather calm part of the city but still be close enough to have access to all things you need.

I start my review of this hotel by openly stating that Buenos Aires is one of my most favorite cities in the world and the Algadon Mansion my new favorite hotel.

In May of 2011 I spent 7 nights at the Algadon Mansion. The second week of my stay was spent at another of the cities 5 star properties that fell short of the experience that I had at the Algadon. I write about that as well in another post.

What separates a good hotel from a great one are the people, to which I would say the Algadon Mansion has outdone itself.

Prior to my arrival I emailed the hotel with a list of activities and bookings at restaurants that I wished for them to secure.

Everything was handled with great care and alternative restaurants and activities were suggested that Martin felt would be more interesting and engaging.

The hotel organized a relaxing day at the Estancia Villa Maria outside of the city where my son and I toured the extensive grounds on horseback and then he attended private polo lessons at the Black Watch Polo Club. The food and service at the Estancia were superb and I highly recommend this property. Spend just a day as we did or a few days, it’s a lovely B&B just outside the city limits.

The Algadon opened their hotel and Chez Nous kitchen to us and we took one day of cooking classes taught by their Cordon Bleu trained executive chef and a second day of classes taught by their pastry chef.

Organizing a bicycle tour of the city and tickets to the Theatro Colon were all part of the private butler services that the hotel offered. But one would expect nothing less from a five star property and they delivered on every count.

Every morning at our breakfast table the hotel presented our updated itinerary of confirmed activities and restaurant bookings.

If you are planning a trip to BA you must stay at the Algadon, they will spoil you for any other hotel in the world.

My wife and I stayed here during Januray of 2011. The hotel is located in a great neighborhood with trendy shops and restaurants within walking or short cab ride. The staff are young but very professional, courteous and helpful. The restaurant is fantastic with exceptional service. The small lobby bar is great place to chill before heading out to dinner! The suites were beautiful, roomy, with all modern amenities. The bathrooms were very bright, roomy, and modern with great amenities. This is an exclusive small hotel for people who like to live it up. The only negative is that the spa was advertised but non- existent.

There was construction noise in the building next door, and they upgraded us to another suite. Very accommodating staff.

We selected this place for the second leg of our trip over four seasons, and we are glad we did.

Room Tip: They like to do all communications over email, however it pays to call.

This is a very comfortable hotel with a great staff in the heart of Recoleta. Easy walk to the Cemetary, a top restaurant and great rooms.

Room Tip: Get and Ambasador suite on the 2nd floor.

The Algodon Mansion is a great place to stay in BA. There are only 10 rooms and the service fantastic. We had room ten which was very well appointed with modern elegant finishings and the best shower I have ever been in! They have great attention to detail including a hidden adapter that will work with any plug. Nice touch!
The food was excellent and the concierges were all very fun as well as very helpful. If you have ever stayed at Jay's Paris in Paris, France, the Algodon is quite similar in terms of rooms, location and service BUT the Algodon has a great restaurant as well.
They just got their Relais and Chateau certification last month so I am thinking it will be smart to book in advance!

Room Tip: Room 10 is super. You'll LOVE the shower.

I had the great pleasure of staying at Algodon Mansion (and also their Winery Estates in San Rafael shortly thereafter). Everything looked amazing (rooms, beds, food, wine, everything), and the attentive full service was outstanding.
The Mansion was quiet and serene (which is what I was looking for), with a good staff to guest ratio.
Their restaurant, Chez Nous was outstanding, and we even ran into the Chef the next day, who was extremely friendly and down to earth, despite the fact that he runs arguably the best restaurant in Buenos Aires.
The concierge was great with recommending and even booking excursions and restaurant reservations throughout our stay.
The most unique and memorable part of the hotel: the winelist on iPad...

For our part business, part pleasure visit of Buenos Aires we decided to splurge. After reviewing the usual choices of upscale hotels such as the Four Seasons, Palacia Duhau and Alvear Palace we decided on the recently opened Algodon Mansion, which due to its size and location seemed to suit our needs (and wants) better. From start to finish it was fantastic. The hotel contacted us for possible transportation needs and any other wishes prior to arrival. The airport pick-up went smoothly and the welcome and check-in pleasant and effortless. Our personal butler explained everything without us feeling overwhelmed and immediately made dinner reservations. The bottle of Algodon wine in the room was perfect, more so since we, on a walk through beautiful Recoleta, found an upscale mall with a fabulous produce shop selling unbelievable Argentinian sausages and cheeses, that went well with the wine.
The room was fabulous (we were upgraded to an imperial suite), high quality materials and one of the best bathrooms ever: Beautiful white marble with a huge tub and a brilliantly designed shower easily converted to a steam shower. Our room had a small balcony looking out on the backyards of neighboring properties, nice for a morning coffee, and it was absolutely quiet at night. Nice touch in the room was the Nespresso coffee machine, first 3 cups free (which is a bit odd if you share the room, 2 or 4 makes more sense).
Breakfast was absolutely great and sufficient to sustain you through lunch. Dinner in the restaurant was excellent.
Our butler arranged tango lessons and provided good tips for places to go in town. BA is safe to walk through during the daytime; we walked to Palmetto, Plaza de Mayo and more. Recoleta is absolutely safe in the evening and a stroll back to the hotel after dinner is nice.

Next time we come to BA we will be back at the mansion and combine it with a trip to Mendoza to visit their winery.

Pro's: Location, service, small scale
Con's: none
