About this Hotel

Price From $95

'Hood Recoleta/Barrio Norte, on a residential block with doctors' offices and sought-after apartment towers. Within a short walk of tourist must-sees, such as the Recoleta Cemetery (where Eva Perón is buried) and the fine-arts museum (Museo Nacional de Belles Artes).

First Impression Relaxed civility. The six-story 1929 town house has an art gallery and café on its ground floor and a sundeck on its roof. A whirlpool bath is open in warm weather, typically between December and March.

Rooms Thirty-five rooms are classified from "small & cozy" to "king." Elegant touches include canopied beds, wrought-iron work, French doors, and wood floors. Light sleepers may want to opt for the rooms in back, which are at a quiet remove from the street.

Plus A fine value in a desirable area—plus it packs personality. Nearby competitors tend to be in anonymous towers.

Minus Only the king rooms contain bathtubs, but not even kings have king-size beds: Queen-size beds are the largest ones here.

Free Wi-Fi? Yes, in the lobby.

Credit Cards Accepted AmEx, MC, Visa.

Details Doubles from $95, including value added tax (VAT).
