Advantages Great position, huge rooms and bathroom
Disadvantages Little storage in bedrooms and food and drink VERY expensive
The hotel is on the Avenida del Libertador in the Recoleta district of Buenos Aires and is situated within walking distance of most areas in Buenos Aires and is close to the main railway station. The entrance is modern looking with gold revolving doors and there is at least one doorman at all times to welcome you in. The lobby is quite spacious and very well appointed, there are flower arrangements on tables which are fresh and look welcoming. The reception desk is on the left as you walk in to the hotel and they will also change money at a reasonable rate here. On the right hand side is an open looking bar with comfortable seats and tables. At the back of the hotel, through the lobby is the restaurant which is actually quite small for the size of hotel. This is where we had our breakfasts but we did not eat in the hotel other than breakfast.
Our room was lovely, really large with a big double bed, a desk, smaller round table and chair, a mini bar cabinet on top of which was the TV. There was a wardrobe and a few small drawers. This was a major defect as we came to unpack, there was no where to put anything, 6 hangers and 4 tiny drawers is not enough storage space for people on holiday. It might be enough for business men staying only a couple of nights but not for people travelling for longer times. There was a coffee machine and then tea bags and sugar, we couldn't work out how you would use a coffee filter machine to make tea and there was no coffee provided!! There was internet access in the room but the price was 60 Argentinean pesos for 24hours - about £10 but I didn't want to be on for 24 hours so I didn't bother going on the internet at this hotel. There was also wireless access in the lobby at the same price.They state on their site that there are views of the city from the rooms but we overlooked the garden which was very nice and also offered a great deal of privacy as the garden hadavery high wall around it and this meant that our room was not overlooked at all. Our friends did have a city view and overlooked the railway station and beyond which was interesting but not a stunning view as views go. We all had the deluxe rooms of 42 square meters not the corner suites which are much larger - two spaces of 52 square metres. Ours were perfectly adequate and I'm not sure what need there is for any bigger area really.
The bathroom in our room was huge with a bidet and toilet, bath and shower plus a huge area, almost enough to hold a party in.
