I returned to to Recoleta House for my second visit. The family and staff are extremely helpful and a pleasure to deal with. From figuring bus routes, to choosing a place to shop or see a tango show, they will help with every detail. Their resaurant recommenations are always superb. I enjoyed chatting with the other travellers and the breakfast...

We highly recommend this small hotel in Recoleta. It is situated in a quiet, safe neighborhood with lots of restaurants and cafes in the area. Close to many tourists attractions. Very clean, includes A/C, WiFi and a good breakfast all at a very reasonable price. Rodolfo, the owner, and Beltran, his right hand man, both speak very good English and...

I love this place! What a beautiful home and what a warm, welcoming family and staff. I arrived in Buenos Aires on an overnight bus, and was so grateful that Recoleta Guest House was able to accommodate me with an early check-in. E-mail correspondence with Rodolfo was clearly-worded, polite, and professional. Upon arrival I was immediately greeted by Marcos, who...

We stayed there for 3 nights with friends. The location is great, close to everything, nice safe neighbourhood. Our room, however, was so small that the door practically hit the bed. Our friends' room was large and airy, as were the other rooms I saw. Unfortunately, the price was the same whether you had the dinky room with the dinky...

In my house we care a lot about how people feel. We really want to welcome all our guests in the same way and originally we used to charge the same for any room. The smallest room has a bigger closet and a huge window that allows you to enjoy of the century-old Avocardo Tree from our dear neighbors. After...

Excellent value for money, considering the location and the amenities (a communal living room/library stacked with guidebooks, etc, an outdoor patio, 24-hrs on-site staff, free wi-fi, free phone for calls in Buenos Aires, very good breakfasts). The rooms are spacious. My own room (El Ombu) was looking a little tired -- specially the bathroom -- but apparently it is about...

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.
