Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Prime location by the sprawling San Martin Square
  • Easy access to Microcentro, Recoleta, and Puerto Madero
  • Rooms have kitchenettes and microwaves
  • Relaxing garden area for socializing or snacks
  • Free continental breakfast
  • Free Wi-Fi in common areas of the hotel

Cons

  • Fee for in-room Wi-Fi and limited parking
  • Street noise can be bothersome
  • Some furnishings and fixtures are in need of replacement

Bottom Line

Loi Suites Arenales is a 76-room apartment-style hotel by the lush and leafy Plaza San Martin in Retiro. Although there are shopping thoroughfares, historical landmarks, and museums just a few streets away, the immediate area is quaint and quiet. Rooms are comfortable and have kitchenettes, but overall the decor could use some color as well as an update in certain areas (mainly bathroom fixtures). Overall, rates are affordable but amenities are scarce -- just free continental breakfast and free Wi-Fi (only in the public areas).

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In a quiet area by the Plaza San Martin in Retiro, just north of Microcentro

Loi Suites Arenales is located in the downtown neighborhood of Retiro, near the railway station and close to businesses and government agencies. Retiro is directly north of (and within walking distance of) Microcentro, the city's financial and cultural heart.

Retiro is the transportation hub of Buenos Aires. Often, "transportation hub" is synonymous with gritty, depressing, and traffic-filled, but this is not the case with Retiro (except the traffic-filled part). The neighborhood is home to upscale shops, luxury hotels, and the Plaza San Martin park, surrounded by beautiful historic mansions (many of which now serve as embassies).

  • 39-minute drive to Buenos Aires Ministro Pistarini International Airport
  • 2-minute walk to Plaza San Martin
  • 8-minute walk to Calle Florida
  • 11-minute walk to Microcentro
  • 12-minute walk to Cervantes Theatre
  • 13-minute walk to Torre de los Ingleses
  • 16-minute walk to La Recoleta
  • 6-minute drive to El Obelisco
  • 12-minute drive to Puerto Madero
