Honestly, I was disappointed in this hotel, more than anything else because at the time of my visit there was substantial construction going on in the street in front of the hotel and the noise was significant. (no mention of this was made during booking)
The hotel offers small, medium and large rooms. Since I was staying only one night I just went for a small. In honesty I thought the small rooms were a bit too small. I didn't get to see one of the larger rooms so i have no basis for comparison.
The design of this hotel was very different from most of the hotels I have ever stayed at. Minimalist. Brushed concrete. It was very clean, and the bed was very comfortable. I personally didn't care for the overly minimalist design and brushed concrete. It was just a bit "cold" for my taste.
Bathroom was modern, spotlessly clean and water was super, unlike some reviews i have seen.
I would not stay in a small room again at this hotel. a bit small and expensive for that. The larger rooms might have been much better, i don't know
Unique Quality: Location is in Palermo Soho, which is a great neighborhood if you like shopping and good restaurants. I had no problems walking around at night. Walk to the subway was a bit long, but without incident really.
The hotel advertises itself as a boutique hotel, I don't remember if it was so at the time of my visit.
Service was generally friendly. Staff spoke excellent english.
common areas were really quite nice. They now have WIFI throughout the hotel.
Rooftop deck and breakfast area were excellent!
I didn't spend very long at this hotel so its hard to really say that much about it.
Has anyone stayed at either Five Cool Rooms or Mine Hotel? If so, can you please provide some feedback? Thanks
Overall I feel Mine is the better property. Rooms are a bit larger, bathrooms nicer etc. and I think the staff in general is better. It has quickly risen up the ranks of favorite hotels in the city and at this point I could only recommend the BoBo or Home as alternatives to Mine.
Hi there - Is the best place to stay Recoleta? I'm looking for a good time and fun nightlife. Can you please suggest a nice 3 and 4 star hotel in that area. Also, is there a direct flight from BA to Floripa? Thanks!!
No suggestion for the hotel, for Floripa have a look at
or (longer but much cheaper)
btw it's pretty cold these days in Floripa, I mean.. it's a little bit early for the beach :-)
I've just seen an other topic.. you want to go to Floripa for NewYear's Eve, isn't it? I did it once, it was nice, i've been at Barra da Lagoa, an apartment for a week.. New Year's Eve and Carnival are the most expensive weeks in Brasil, so you'd better book early to hope to spend less.
As for nightlife it really depends on what you are looking for. Yes there is nightlife in the Recoleta but if you want bars, and dance clubs then you might be better off staying in Palermo SoHo/Hollywood. Here are some hotel suggestions for both barrios. Recoleta: The Bel Air Arenales 1462, Art Hotel Azcuenaga 1268 Barrio Norte/Recoleta, Loi Suites Recoleta Lopez Vicente 1955, Design Hotel Marcelo T de Alvear 1695, and the Apart Recoleta Guido 1948. In Palermo the BoBo Hotel Guatemala 4882, Home Hotel Honduras 5860, SoHo All Suites Honduras 4762, Mine Hotel Jose Ignacio Gorriti 4770, Miravida Soho Darregueyra 2050 and finally Five Cool Rooms Honduras 4742.
These should be a good start in finding a place to stay. And there is always the option of an apartment as well unless you just love hotels :))
We went to BA last year and I thought Palermo Viejo was a great part of the city. It has beautifi building, really individual shops (great trendy clothes and funky shop interiors). The bars and restaurants are cool too eg there is one where every room as a different bolour, the bar area is a nice mix of ultra trendy and antiques. The area is very clean, there are trees on the streets and it is just a really nice place to chill but also have a buzzy time out and about. It is not far from the rest of the city either. We will go back this year and loo for a hotels there.
Instead of staying in a hotel I recommend staying in a rented flat...my experiences was so much fun and you feel less like a tourist... try this apartmental rental company http://www.buenosairesstay.com
they were wonderful - great bilingual consierge service
