Hotel Etoile, Buenos Aires
Dated decor, friendly staff, comfortable room
For a weekend trip to Buenos Aires in which I wanted to get as much sightseeing in as possible, the Hotel Etoile was ideally located. It's literally across a small plaza from the entrance to the Recoleta cemetery, so I was able to go check it out while I was waiting for my room to be available. The staff are friendly and helpful. The breakfast is a nice buffet with hot and cold foods (although they had the exact same spread both days, making me think it may be the same every day--might get boring if you're staying a long time). The room appears to have been decorated in the 1980s, judging by the bathroom fixtures and carpet, but it was clean and the bed was comfortable. There was an odd column smack in the middle of the room, which meant that I couldn't sit on the lounge chair and watch TV, and I would have liked to have a chair on the balcony, but otherwise, it was fine. New flat screen TV has international cable channels with lots of options if you want to lie in bed and watch TV. Swimming pool was a little bit too warm for lap swimming but quite pleasant for watching airplanes take off from the domestic airport (great view from the 14th floor pool!). If you want to swim, but sure to bring a swim cap to cover your hair.

Great Location but.....
Great location with awesome balcony overlooking Recoleta Cemetery. The room was HUGE! Unfortunately, the hotel is in major need of a renovation. The furniture, carpet, bathroom was outdated and dirty. Please Please renovate this hotel as it has so much potential!

Etoile Hotel BsAs - Great Staff - Great Location
The location is Great !... However, the Hotel needs to be refurbished. The WiFi system works inadvertently.. on and off, which makes if very frustrating to work. Our bathroom had old fixtures which need to be replaced. The room was spacious and comfortable. The front desk and restaurant staff are very pleasant.
