Review Summary


Pros

  • Prime location in Recoleta close to many attractions
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • Free breakfast buffet
  • Spacious marble lobby with lounge areas
  • Suites are upgraded with flat-screen TVs and hardwood floors

Cons

  • Dated, worn decor
  • Rooms are on the small side
  • Little natural light and lousy views in rooms
  • Sparse amenities besides a small business center and quiet bar
  • Only off-site parking available

Bottom Line

Much like its sister property down the block, Hotel de Las Americas looks pretty worn and tired. Functional rooms have dated decor like muted floral comforters and drapes, bare white walls, and tube TVs. The short list of amenities includes a quiet bar and restaurant. The hotel's saving grace is its prime location, right in the center of the Recoleta neighborhood. Travelers looking for better design and more amenities should consider the CasaCalma Hotel instead.

Location

In the heart of La Recoleta, an upscale and safe neighborhood in central Buenos Aires, close to great shopping and fine dining

Map of Hotel De Las Americas

The Hotel de las Americas is located in the heart of one of the most upscale and safe neighborhoods in central Buenos Aires, La Recoleta. It is one block from 9 de Julio Avenue, the city's main thoroughfare, and a two-minute walk to great shopping and dining on Santa Fe Avenue.

Residential La Recoleta is one of Buenos Aires' grand dames, with marble buildings and top-notch boutiques lining busy streets full of locals and tourists alike. Alvear Avenue is one of the main thoroughfares in the area, and has some of the most beautiful Parisian-style apartment buildings in the neighborhood, including a couple of magnificent palaces.

But it's not all about shopping here -- the neighborhood is home to major attractions like the National Library, a handful of art museums, and some interesting art galleries. However, there's little to no public transportation available in the area, requiring visitors to take cabs.
