Stayed at the del Casco on the recommendation of local friends after some research. How grateful we were as English speakers to find a boutique, charming hotel right on Avenido Libertador (cobbel stone street) with helpful reception we could easily communicate with. The accomodation is elegant with huge fluffy pillows, king size beds and high ceilings. Breakfast was served in a conservatory, or in the court yard and drinks and snacks available all day. meals can be ordered from the restaurant next door and delivered to your room. We took our friends to the adjacent, very smart Estela Restaurant and found it to be 5 star too, and quite reasasonable with dollars in your pocket.
We heartily recommend the Hotel Del Casco and San Isidro in general. A superb feature of the majority of streets in Buenos Aires is that they are lined with proper mature trees (plein trees we guess)
Unique Quality: This hotel is in an historic part of the city and fits in very well. No views, but the street outside is lined with lovely large trees. There is a pool and an elegant atrium with papers and magazines etc. The court yard has cafe tables for very good coffee, tea and nibbles. There is a scenic railway (tren de la costa) a block away which runs from Tigre in the delta to Olivos in the leafy suburbs, along the great river Rio de La Plata which at this point is some 20 kilometres wide - you cannot see the other side.
Directions: in the Northern section of greater Buenos Aires (El Norte). San Isidro is a famous part of the extended city - the Cathedral across the road from the hotel is 300 years old. Ave Libertador runs all the way from the city right to the front door.
