Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Clean, minimalist design
  • Rooms with wide floor-to-ceiling windows providing great views
  • Cool, modern baths have Jacuzzi tubs, windows, and rainfall showerheads
  • Microwaves and mini-bars
  • Flat-screen TVs (albeit quite small, at 23 inches)
  • Automatic blackout shades on windows
  • Free 24-hour breakfast with croissants, mixed fruit, and coffee
  • Free parking
  • Fully stocked bar/cafe in the basement of hotel
  • Business center with free Wi-Fi

Cons

  • Standard rooms have minimal storage and closet space
  • No restaurant
  • No pool or fitness center
  • Car or taxi needed to get to most main attractions

Bottom Line

The upscale, 28-room CE Hotel de Diseño is all about style. The common areas and rooms are designed with minimalist decor and relaxing, subdued shades of brown, green, and orange. The floor-to-ceiling windows in the rooms provide tons of natural light, and some great views of the city. The hotel is lacking in amenities -- no pool, spa, or restaurant (though there is a 24-hour free breakfast, as well as a bar/cafe in the basement), but there are plenty of options right outside. It's a good option for those who prefer design over amenities -- or location, as guests will need a car or taxi to get to many (but not all) tourist attractions.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

On the edge of the Recoleta neighborhood, bordering downtown

The CE Hotel de Diseño is located at the southern edge of the Recoleta neighborhood, with many restaurants and shops right outside. It's within walking distance of a few popular sights, including Teatro Colon and the Recoleta Cemetery, but most other attractions will require a taxi ride.

Recoleta takes it name from the Recollect Fathers, a Franciscan order that established itself in the area during the early 18th century. They built a monastery, church and what would eventually become the famous Recoleta Cemetery. Featuring striking 19th and 20th century funerary art and architecture, the cemetery today is the final resting place many of Argentina's most influential political figures, including former First Lady Eva "Evita" Peron. Recoleta is also home to the National Library of Argentina, and the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes. Downtown Buenos Aires is about 10 minutes away by car or taxi.

  • 36-minute drive to Buenos Aires Ministro Pistarini Airport (EZE)
  • 2-minutes walk to many restaurants and shops
  • 12-minute walk to Teatro Nacional Cervantes
  • 13-minute walk to Teatro Colon
  • 15-minute walk to Recoleta Cemetery
  • 7-minute drive to Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes
  • 7-minute drive to Centro Cultural Recoleta
  • 8-minute drive to the National Library of Argentina
  • 10-minute drive to the Obelisk
  • 10-minute drive to Calle Florida
  • 11-minute drive to Casa Rosada
