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 are small but everything was clean and functional so I would not complain about that....

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.

If you are looking to stay in Ricoleta on a budget, Lion D'or is adequate. It is charming, which also translates to awkward and noisy at times. The staff keeps the essentials tidy; the towels are clean if threadbare and small. The bedding is fresh as well, if scratchy and written on with markers. The folks behind the desk toe...

Hotel Lion d'Or is not your typical modern hotel. The ceilings in our room were quite high, the floor was not carpeted, and the bathroom was quite small. On the positive side, the location is excellent for visiting Recoleta Cemetery or the Fine Arts Museum, and the price was lower than most other hotels I looked at. On the negative...

Stayed here 3 times. Very clean. Excellent bedding. Showers good. Staff really helpful and trustworthy. Personally liked old building with high ceilings etc but some people may find some rooms a bit dark. Ask for one with ext window. Breakfast is optional extra and taken round the corner but very good value. All rooms have safes. Location fantastic. Stonesthrow from...

positive: the friendly and helpful staff, the architecure (this place used to be an old embassy and contains most of the old features), location is very close to Recoleta Cementary, 10 min walk from Avenida Santa Fee with shopping and Subte station and 3 min walk from Avenida Las Heras with loads of bus lines.

After 36hrs of flying arriving at the Hotel Lion d'or was a relief. The place is so retro that it is über cool, from the 1920's lift to the antiquated room keys, this place ozes charm. Recoleta is a quieter part of town but still handy to everything. The beds were comfortable, the air conditioning quiet. Totally recommended.

My husband and I decided to go to Argentina for the Holidays. We wanted to be in the "center" of Buenos Aires in a small hotel, where we would be treated by our 'given name' and not be just a 'number'. We found this and so much more in this hotel! The owner is always there and you can talk...

We stayed here one night as a cheap centrally located option. and it was just that. Great location to walk wherever you wanted in Recoleta- and great to be amongst the apartment style living of the people in Recoleta. There is some nice cafes close by for breakfast and like I said, walking distance to the cemetary, santa fe shopping...

Staying in Recoleta

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
