Meliá Recoleta Plaza is located in the exclusive and elegant district of LA RECOLETA, only a few steps from the Administrative and Commercial Center of Buenos Aires, and surrounded by all of the best restaurants, bars and leisure venues in the city. The hotel is minutes away from the National Congress Centre and has a fast and direct route to the Ministro Pistarini (EZE) International Airport with easy access to the highway and a bus and taxi stand a few meters distance from the hotel. *All our rates include, with no extra charge: welcome drink on arrival, morning paper in the room, high-speed internet access in the rooms, choice of pillows, plasma TV and DVD in the rooms, breakfast buffet in the restaurant, butler service, WIFI internet connection in all the public areas and loan of a laptop, loan of DVDs at the porters' desk, unrestricted access to the Health Club (gym, whirlpool, dry sauna, Turkish bath, Scottish and Finnish showers).
From check in to check out, great service throughout. A nice breakfast of eggs, toast, yogurts, cold cuts, cereals, juice, coffee and even champage (or so we thought as we didn't partake). They have a VERY small workout room and spa upstairs. The room we had was spacious and very grand - befitting of a building that was owned by Evita. The lobby was beautiful. They even allowed held our luggage and let us shower at the spa prior to us leaving on a late 9 PM flight. We would stay again.
The Recoleta area is very nice and is where some wealthy people live. However, it offers very little in the way of nightlife. There are a few restobars around the Cemetery but nothing like Palermo. If you want ready access to lots of bars, restaurants and clubs, you should probably not stay here.
