Stayed at the Arc Recoleta on 3 separate occasions during our 3 weeks in Argentina. Staff were very welcoming and helpful and the hotel held the bulk of our luggage for a few nights while we undertook a trip to Uruguay. Each of the different class of rooms we stayed in were of a good size and very comfortable. The rooms are reasonably priced. At breakfast while there were just a few hot items there was plenty of choice of other items. On one occasion we enjoyed a nice evening meal at the hotel. There are a number of bars and restaurants close by and also two small Carrefour Express supermarkets for water and other drinks etc. The rooftop pool while not large has loungers in the area and there’s also a covered area with comfortable chairs. Uber and other taxis are far from expensive in Buenos Aires and we used them extensively as well as walking. Recoleta itself has interesting places to visit; so we considered the hotel very convenient to access all that Buenos Aires has to offer. Of all the hotels we used during our month long trip in South America we considered the Arc Recoleta along with the Hotel Tolosa in Porthy Madryn the best. Sadly after checking out of the hotel and sitting in reception tracking our taxi a piece of luggage was stolen. However we were very grateful for the response of the staff especially the Hotel Operations Manager who as well as being very concerned took us to the Police Station liaising with the Police and helping file the report.
