This restaurant is in the best location in Buenos Aires, Recoleta; the most upscale neighborhood in the City. We had breakfast here included made to order eggs Benedict and fruit and coffee, Great attention from waiters and overall a great experience. Emiliano at the front desk was particularly helpful, Thanks!

A reliable kitchen and professional service characterize this hotel restaurant. The clientele tends to be more traditional, mainly well-to-do neighbors, a sure seal of approval. Menus du jour offer two or three courses and a glass of wine for US$ 15-20, depending on the dollar rate. A favorite.

Delightful property in an excellent location. You have many choices in room sizes, but all are of good size. The staff is very helpful and most accommodating. Room service is prompt. Linens and towels are of a high quality and so are the bathroom products. Cant go wrong with this hotel.

The old building, in the heart of the recoleta neighbourhood, has been nicely refurbished and redecorated to become a top level Hotel. The restaurant is offering tradicional French cuisine. The lunch menu is a good deal, but maybe the servings could be more generous.

After 14 days on a cruise ship with loud and obnoxious Asians my wife and I needed a quite retreat. We found it. You walk into an Italian or France hotel done in the most excellent taste.

Go to the wintergarden! I think the restaurant is not so cosy, but the wintergarden is for sure! The food is great (try their risotto!) and the dessert card yummy. Wine by the glas and small, but excellent card. We went twice, because we liked the food and atmosphere so much during our stay in Recoleta.

This is lovely hotel with a fantastic staff. The front desk staff were all so helpful with all our questions and requests, especially Rosangelina. She made dinner reservations, provided directions and set up a wonderful Tango dining experience. Breakfast was amazing and the staff was also very pleasant. Our rooms were beautiful, clean and very quiet. We hope to return... More

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.
