There's a good reason why this place hasn't been reviewed for a while! It looks like no one has been there for quite some time. Out dated rooms with hard and uncomfortable beds. The bathroom suite also in need of a complete overhaul. Nothing worse in my opinion than a old, flakey bath, shower and toilet! Cheap and nasty loo...

Attention: don't forget anything in the room! We stayed at the hotel last August 2012 for vacation. During the stay in the hotel, one morning we forgot the mobile in the room and it was stolen. It was a very bad experience. Our room was near the elevator and therefore very noisy. Cleaning of the room was normal. The breakfast...

After perusing tripadvisor, I decided to book a room at the Principe Hotel. I was lured in by the US$23/room rate that I read on this website and I told my cab driver almost braggingly what a great deal this was. To my dismay, I found out that singles were actually AR200 (US$50) and doubles AR250 (US$64). My taxi had...

I did go to Buenos Aires with my mother (80) a person who prefers the Sheratons, Hiltons etc. We both took the chance with the Principe Hotel (since our beloved cat is named Principe) and found it a great deal and a nice place to stay. Since we do not spend much time at a hotel and I had a...

We stayed at this hotel for 7 days in March 2005, our room was large and light with 3 beds. The bathroom could have been a little cleaner, but it was more than acceptable for the money $35USD/night with breakfast. We wanted to stay in an Argentinian hotel rather than a hotel full of American and European tourists and this...

The Hotel Principe is well-located (close to the metro and just off busy Avenida Santa Fe), but there are better values. Our room was rundown, with none of the charm of Buenos Aires' other aging establishments. The room we were given was spacious enough, with two single beds in addition to a queen bed, but it also smelled musty. The...

We wanted a quiet place in Buenos Aires to spend 4-5 days. On the last minute we cancelled our reservation in a downtown hotel for Hotel Principe. It was a great decision. Hotel Principe has a great location (in Palermo: one of the richest area), Internet cafe, grocery store, restaurant and ATM were less than a block away. Plus you...

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.
