    Excellence and style combined, the place looks and feels good. Excellent food beautiful and comfortable rooms, luxury place without the attitude, friendly staff and the concierge always happy to help. And of course the place is at the centre of everything you'd want to see in buenos aires. I loved my stay.

    Excellent 5 Star Hotel

    This is a beautiful 5 star hotel in a nice part of Buenos Aires. The service was impeccable. Attentive and friendly. All staff I encountered spoke excellent English. Breakfast buffet was very good too.

  • 8.0.Very good

    No room available when arrived at 3pm. Told it would be another 30 minutes and to wait in bar. Then later offered a voucher for the bar but waiter said only valid for water tea or coffee. Checked after 30 minutes but advised by reception that they were awaiting an update and that reception would check and come to advise. After another 20 minutes or so still no news so went back to reception again to be told that at room now available but only advised after my returning to reception as opposed to hotel staff coming to advise my wife and I. Total wait of nearly an hour after spending the day travelling.

    The place to stay in Buenos Aires

    Excellent service from arrival until departure from every member of staff we had dealings with. Simple things like addressing you correctly and properly (not familiarly) make a big difference, even if it's somebody answering a phone query. Quality of rooms, fittings and accessories all to a high standard.

    Smell and leak....

    Smelled like sewage and had a significant water leak. Notified the front desk about the water leak and smell when showering and they sent someone up to fix it but no repair was made, it was only cleaned up and perfumed. We tried using the shower again later that night and the leak showed up again. The tech was able to find the simple leak but not easily repair so we had to move rooms around midnight. They did give a small discount off the restaurant but nothing off our room. The food was good but more bar food and nothing fancy. The spa however was great. I’d still recommend this place because your options for 5 stars are limited.
