A modern hotel in an excellent location for sight-seeing, this good-value property has set itself high standards of service and comfort in a no-nonsense, contemporary ambiance.
The Recoleta Grand in the affluent suburb of Recoleta is highly recommended for its smart and stylish presentation, convenient central location and high level of comfort and service. There's a small pool open to the sky (Nov-Mar), and a spa and fitness centre. The restaurant, like the generously proportioned guest rooms and suites, is decorated in contemporary-chic style, with good quality furnishings. This isn't luxury, but the clean lines and uncluttered design and decoration will be pleasing to many.
All the guest rooms have minibar, coffee machine, free Wi-fi, a huge flat screen TV, air/c on and heating. There are four categories of rooms, from Junior to Grand Suite. In relation to similar properties in Buenos Aires, the hotel is also excellent value for money.
What our clients say
Iguazu Fall were spectacular - made Niagara Falls look like a dripping tap. The bus journey from Mendoza over the Andes to Santiago was equally excellent. Buenos Aires was an exciting city, in which the area around La Boca was was so charismatic - could have stayed there for days!ID, London
Trekking on the Perito Moreno Glacier, seeing Condors in the Andes, crossing the Andes by boat and bus, the whole visit to Ushuaia. This was probably the most varied and exciting trip we have done in recent years, which worked almost perfectly logistically and in terms of time spent in each location.PN, Guildford
Too many highlights to mention - almost every day. Unexpected highlight was the 3 Lakes crossing from Puerto Varas to Bariloche in beautiful weather.JM, London
