    The situation is magic... all those trees in the middle of a city left me feeling so peaceful. The rooms are adequate but the staff are first class as nothing is too much trouble for them to do for the visitors. Our breakfasts were wonderful. We are in our 60's & 70's

    This is our second stay at the Hotel Bel Air in B.A. We stayed once in 2008 and again in 2010. The hotel is in a great location in the Recoleta neighborhood. It is close to Avenida Sante Fe and a number of shops as well as the Recoleta district. It is primarily a residential neighborhood so it is a great way to observe and become part of the pace of Buenos Aires life. There are plenty of decent restaurants in the area. I can't think of a better palce to stay if you are in B.A. for a vacation. The rooms are very modern/minimalist (think IKEA), if you don't like this style you may not like this atmosphere.

    The rooms can be on the small side. I recommend getting what they call a "Double Superior" as it has a small sitting area. The "Double Comfort" is a bit on the tight side.

    Superb

    It's location is excelent and the bed had good size and it was confortable. All people had very good understanding and took care of everything.

    Didn't like the bathroom just because the box was leaking all the time. Guys who intend go to Argentina be very careful with the 100 bills ... all taxi people will try to replace them by a fake one. They are VERY smart.

    We would like to thank the BeL Air Hotel for such and enjoyable stay. The staff were excellent, we were able to store our luggage between trips which made life much easier. The light breakfast of juices, fresh fruit, ham, cheese breads scrambled, pastries, coffee and tea was enough to help us start our day. We found the design of the rooms refreshing and cleaner than some of the more expensive hotels. The location of the hotel was perfect, we were able to walk to most places and catch taxis whenever required, but preferred to walk to explore the wonderful city. We will return to the hotel, and will certainly recommend it to friends who intend to visit your city.

    Location is excellent and the room is very clean with a safety deposit in the room and desk area. Very nice bathroom

    Breakfast area too crowded and understaffed, was better in the past wifi cost no real lobby area understaffed in general

    Good

    The location

    I arrived at noon and the room was not ready, returned at 14 because we had a meeting at 15hs and the room still was not ready- when we come back at 19. they made us pay the whole fare before giving me the room.this is the first time we are asket to pay in advance instead of the next day when leaving. And instead of $ 566 that was the fare 104dolar plus tax at the official rate they charged me$ 582.44 (I have not the copy of the booking), In summary this hotel never more.

    Superb

    Superior rooms are located quietly. Facing the rear. Hotel well located. Breakfast is o.k. but not big choice. Service o.k. Verv few and narrow tables. Could definitely be improved.

  • 6.6
    Good

    The convenient location and courtesy of the staff. good security

    The breakfast. There is a full table but more attention could be given to the quality of the food. Less quantity and more quality.

    dust in the bar countertop and lack of professionalism of bartender.

    We really appreciated the large, clean, modern hotel room and the variety of foods offered for the buffet breakfast. The hotel restaurant was also good. The location of this hotel is within walking distance of Santa Fe Avenue where there is miles of shopping, coffee shops, bakeries, drug stores, restaurants, etc. We felt very safe in this neighborhood. The hotel staff arranged everything we asked for quickly and had answers to all of our questions.

    Excellent location for sightseeing and shopping, in a quiet area with nice restaurants. Good choice for breakfast.

    Some rooms should be refreshed.
