If you are traveling on a budget in Buenos Aires and wish to stay in the Recoleta area, this is a fine choice. It is in a beautiful, historic old mansion; I loved the high ceilings and elegant architecture. As others have mentioned, the bathrooms...More

Nos alegra que su estadia haya sido bien placentera con nosotros y esperamos que vuelvan pronto.
This is not a cookie cutter hotel. It is a rather unusual, old style building and is very affordable. Though our room was a little shabby in some respects, it was clean and quiet. The hard working desk clerks were kind and helpful.

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.
