Wonderful hotel with a great restaurant. Location is ok. If you want good shopping head to Recoleta; very close. I used the spa and had an excellent massage. The staff are very friendly and accomodating.

"Like a 5 star elegant 100 year old European Hotel"
It was beautiful, clean, with great service. Everyone at the desk and in the lobby was warm and helpful. The concierge was terrific. Everyone spoke English. I got off a cruise ship, and this hotel was just as luxurious! I can't think of one thing lacking.
Amazing hotel - understated elegance. Delicious food and tremendous variety. Room was lovely - could have been improved with coffee/tea maker. Staff was attentive - front desk was very available and wanted to be helpful but sometimes varied in their expertise.
"Good location, wifi internet too slow for buniness"
The receptionist, a young guy, was very "arrogant" when answering questions about exchanging Dollar x Argentinian Pesos. He (unfortunately, I didn't ask his name) is not a good professional to be at the Front Desk, dealing with people. Manager should pay attention to this person. I am questioning myself if I will be back to this hotel!
"Great hotel for a comfortable stay in Buenos Aires"
We loved this hotel! (Two Canadian female travellers) and would absolutely return for next stay in Buenos Aires. The hotel itself is very nice and modern with great design. Room was very clean, very nice, comfortable and great bathroom. Breakfast was so good every day with a big breakfast buffet inclusive of hot items, lots of baked goods, juices, etc. location can't be beat and the staff are so helpful and friendly. Wifi worked perfectly with no hiccups and house keeping staff were so sweet.
Arrived at 2AM, desk clerk efficient and quick, gave us an upgrade from a room to a suite. Bed very comfortable. Had a restful night. Left for another destination the next morning. It took us about 30mn to get to the domestic airport.
Packed with high-end shopping venues, upscale architecture, and historic monuments, Retiro is also a transportation hub with long-distance buses and railways. Take in a show at Borges Cultural Center or ride the elevator to the top of Torre de los Ingleses for sweeping views. The heart of Retiro, Plaza San Martin, offers the perfect place to relax in the shade under verdant treetops.
