The property is majestic and royal. All bigwigs stayed here. Best central location with impeccable service levels. Staying here is a real treat. Royal rooms, butlers and one of the best hotel in Buenos Aires.
This is one of the best hotels in town, for real! Not just the service is driven to perfection, but the hotel athmosphere and architecture is astonishing! Internal spaces are huge and well decorated in a french style, so you fell you are entering the Versailles Palace! Rooms are huge, clean, with the maximun confort one can have. Wi-fi Internet works very well inside the hotel, and speed is good. Service staff is very polite and helpfull. Breakfast is delicious, with good variety of food. This is the first time I go to a hotel where the pictures in the website correspond to what you have for real. It is so perfect that there is no need for photoshopping! Hotel is in a very good area, very close to Recoleta cemmetery and close to BsAs downtown.
"Old world style and above and beyond service!"
My husband and I had three nights in Buenos Aires and decided to stay here because of others' reviews and the location. EVERYONE here is incredibly service oriented and friendly. Although this is a grand old hotel, it is updated and not stuffy! Breakfast buffet is amazing. We were upgraded to a Governor's Suite with butler service---very luxurious!and comfortable! Our friends in BA later told us that it's the best in the city! LOVE THIS HOTEL and would stay again in a heartbeat.
First the positive: The hotel is beautiful and in a good location and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Negative: There is no place to smoke. So you have to stand in front of the main entrance, no possibility to sit or to drink something. If you want to enjoy a cigar and a whiskey no chance. Second of all the prices. The rooms are in the normal range of luxury hotels but the whiskey is more expensive than in nice hotels in Switzerland which is famous for its high prices, to send a postcard you'll have to spend 7.-USD and the omelette in the morning costs more than a nice piece of meat or a bottle of good wine in every other restaurant in Argentina. Which is ridiculous even if you have all the money in the world. In every other 4 to 5 star hotel I have been you get at least an omelette in the morning without extra charge! Additionally: The swimming pool was closed due to renovation but we didn't get this information till i was asking already in the swimmsuit. My recommendation: spend the money for another nice luxury hotel in buenos aires or don't even come to Argentina if you wanna make holidays. Btw: this is my first tripadviser post because i thought it is really important for people to know that.
"Old & refurbished"
Old hotel refurbished and comfortable. Room a good size wth generous sitting room and desk for working. Bathroom small with separate toilet/bath and shower. Toilet had an interesting bubbling, chugging sound. Shower spacious and excellent heaps of hot water. No tea or coffee making facility in room. Comfortable and lovely furnishings in a classic style. Breakfast with good albeit limited selection, hot and cold. Service prompt.
