Spectacular hotel in one of the best locations in Buenos Aires. Easy access to all places of interest. Staff are attentive without being overbearing and the restaurants and bars are well stocked. There are about three or four luxury hotels in the city and this is one of them.

4/10 Fair

Where to begin. When we arrived I gave my credit card for incidentals. Typically you are charged $50 to $100 for a hold in case you buy something or use the mini bar. The hotel ended up charging me a full nights stay on top of what I already paid through expedia. The bottle of wine we drank that was supposed to be free was charged to us at checkout. When we arrived at breakfast we were told that if we decided to purchase breakfast we would literally have 10 mins to eat. I laughed and confirmed this again with the manager and he said he wasn't joking. He apologized and was nice enough about it and told us they needed to clear the room for brunch. I asked if we could just sit and eat breakfast and roll over into the brunch time. He said no that we would have to come back in 30 mins for brunch. I said ok fair enough we'll come back. Then he told us we couldn't come back unless we had a reservation because they were fully booked. lol. ok? Next we decided to at least go upstairs to take some pictures of the view. I asked what floor is the Pool on? To which they replied oh, you cannot go on the roof it is closed for the season? I feel its important to add I rarely leave bad reviews. I've been in hospitality and customer service and I can understand people have an off day. But for the amount of money I paid for this place I expected a lot more. I would not be returning to this Hotel.

This hotel cannot was beat. It rivals the Penninsula in Beverly Hills. The service is excellent and the hotel is beautiful. I arrived very early and they let me have my room at 10 am with an upgrade at no extra cost. The spa was great and I recommend the rooftop patio for drinks. Awesome view!
