Great atmosphere. Helpful staff. Nice location. Loved the restaurant. Close vicinity to the museums and malls. Most employees speak English and will help you find your way around the city of Buenos Aires
"Hurry up to enjoy Plaza hotel in its tradtional splendour"
Plaza is a marvelous luxury palace-style hotel from the beginning of the 20th century, neighboring beautiful Plaza San Martin. We enjoyed the sophisticated atmosphere, the nice lobby, the fine tapestry in the breakfast room and the exhibition of documents from the splendid past of the hotel in the hallways. Of course, there are some downsides as the labyrinthine access to the hotel rooms (due to previous renovations) and the standard breakfast buffet. Unfortunately, the hotel will close down in next May for major renovation. I am afraid it will never be so nice again and accommodation price will multiply. So take the chance to say goodbye to lovely Plaza hotel.
"Wonderful location on Florida"
I stayed at the Marriott Florida for business, visiting the convention center during the day. Although not the closest hotel to the convention center, it is directly on Florida Avenue which is a pedestrian-only shopping / restaurant avenue. The Marriott was wonderful and reminiscent of the old-world hotels where service is key. White-gloved waiters serve in the restaurant and all. The hotel was impeccably clean and well-serviced. The staff was went out of their way to be gracious and helpful. The room I was in was quite large and nicely appointed. The location, other than being on Florida Avenue, is convenient. The waterfront with its restaurants is within walking distance, as is the Opera House and obelisk, as well as one or two shopping malls.
Located in the beautiful neighborhood of Recoleta surrounded by French architecture. I paid something like $154 dollars/night in March of 2016. It's not as grand as the Alvear Palace Hotel, but it ain't the same price either. You can tell that at one time this place must have been something else. It's a little dated, but a fine place to stay nevertheless.
"Excellent hotel. Minor details to adjust"
Made a reservation through the hotels web site. Got a kind of promotion, apparently a 20% discount for a junior suite. Very nice bedroom, excellent bed, sheets and nice feather pillows, that I was able to ask for in advance on the web site. Also asked for a balcony and a view to the park on the options; never got an answer to my requests via mail or phone. So I imagined everything would be ok in this respect. When I got to do the check in late. 11:30 pm, the first night of three, the process was a bit slow, as there where 3 persons before me; after hearing the lady of the reception explaining that they where each having free wifi but no breakfast included, I was hopeful that my Junior Suite would have breakfast included due to the price; unfortunately I had the same luck as the previous travelers. It sounded kind of cheap to me, that breakfast is an option, in such a luxuriously styled hotel. No one escorted me to my room or offered to carry my bag, although there where a few men of the hotel standing around in the lobby; not even to the elevator, which is not on the same floor; you have to climb up or down some nice carpeted stairs to get to them. I'm fit enough for this, but the passengers before me didn't look that muscular, and they got the same treatment as I. As I mentioned before, it was not because of lack of personnel; they just stood around and said good night to each one leaving the counter. The balcony I asked for was there, but no chairs at table to sit at, if you wanted to be out there and watch the beautiful city's skyline. And not very well cleaned the area of the balcony. Maybe this one was not made to go out to..!!!'' The view to the Plaza San Martin was not there either. As I'm mentioned before, I learned about these "missing wishes" only when I arrived there; no mail or call to tell me beforehand, even though one gives them all your data when doing the reservation. Room service was very efficient; and the room was in perfect condition each time we came back to it. The cleaning ladies, when encountered where extremely polite and helpful. Really very nice. The hotel seems to have been revamped recently, and all is in good condition. The only complaint I can forward with respect to the room, is the plastic shower in the bathroom curtain came getting unhooked in sectors from the railing due to lousy rings to clip in to. With respect to the reservation, in no place of the web site of the hotel did it mention that breakfast would be or not included, and did not give an option to have it added in. So, in summary, it's a fantastic hotel, with its "good old times" charm still in excellent shape, well kept up, fantastic bar and dinning rooms, beautiful surroundings, excellent room service, super well decorated and furnished room and very nice bed and bed clothing's. Staff at the entrance and front desk need a little bit of polishing up with respect to quality attention, specially if you have had a long trip to get there. Web site could clarify things like I mentioned before. In all, an excellent place to stay at in a superb setting, close to many nice eateries, shopping center, leather goods shops, trendy bars and the likes, plus the rest of the beautiful city of Buenos Aires.
