Pros

  • Centrally located near downtown Buenos Aires
  • Close to 3 subway stations and various landmarks
  • Sophisticated and spacious suites
  • Units come with homey features such as kitchenettes, living rooms, and balconies

Bottom Line

Icaro Suites provides guests with sleek, clean, and upscale rooms in a business-oriented area near the heart of Buenos Aires (though the public areas of the hotel feel less upscale). The 62 suites are roomy, comfortable, and sophisticated -- the dark wooden furniture and the simple deep-red and brown patterns of the bedding complement the subdued, beige walls and flooring. The rooms also come with some great features: large windows for lots of natural light, private balconies, free Wi-Fi, kitchenettes, and an ample living room areas. There's a free breakfast buffet of hot and cold foods in a hall that overlooks the hotel’s little art gallery, but there’s no other dining option on-site. There's a basic-needs (tiny) fitness center, and a business center with a few computers. Guests who have been traveling a while will likely appreciate the on-site laundry facilities.

Map of Icaro Suites

Icaro Suites is in downtown Buenos Aires, near the center of Argentina's government. Not the most interesting, charming, or safe area, Congreso (as it is called) does have proximity to many of Buenos Aires' most popular tourist sites -- Microcento is just to the north.

Congreso is somewhat run-down and sketchy (especially at night), and isn't as popular with non-business visitors as the trendy Palermo or Retiro areas. An increased police presence in the area is starting to turn the area around, and more businesses and hotels are opening as a result, but there's still a long way to go.
