Claridge - Great Hotel in Buenos Airesfrom A TripAdvisor Member
I fell in love with Buenos Aires and Claridge contributed to this!from travel_obsessed
Perfectly locatedfrom EricCR2
The hotel is very nice, specially the facade. THe looby is average, but I spend there only few minutes... The bar is very nice, the service is excelent and they know how to makes drinks. The barmen are very nice people and professionals and helpfull.
Our rooms were nice. Some say they need space, but remember this city is like going to Europe and space is limited, but I can say the room was OK.
Location is really a A+. You are in the middle of everything. If you don't want to walk everything is a taxi distance and very inexpensive $3.45 to Palermo, $1.70 to Recoleta, etc. Palermo is the farest maybe. If you like to walk, Florida Street is around the block.
So travelers to beautiful and wonderful Buenos Aires, The Claridge is the place.
nice little thingfrom lin23
Will definitely stay there again!from A TripAdvisor Member
Staff was very efficient and friendly, and every member we met spoke perfect English. Breakfast buffet was quite good with an array of meats, cheeses, and fruits along with some hot dishes that varied each day. One observation is that the cash exchange rate at the hotel front desk was the most competitive we found in the city. Far better than the airport, and slightly better than the exchange houses on Florida Street. Definitely consider exchanging your dollars here.
The only thing that keeps me from giving this hotel 5 stars is the size of the rooms. Our room was quite small and did not have a lot of space for opening a suitcase or walking around the bed while the closet door was open. The bathrooms were also small, and it was difficult to stand looking in the bathroom mirror without banging your leg on the bidet. However, the room was very pleasantly decorated and had all amenities you would expect from a 5-star hotel.
Bottom line, I would happily stay there again on future visits to BA.
Excellent staff; issues with the room sizefrom NYCPeter
I was VERY impressed with the staff at the Claridge top to bottom and can't imagine a more helpful hotel. Especially for a first time visitor, this made a huge difference. Also very friendly bar staff and excellent breakfasts buffet, as has been mentioned. I paid $109 a night for a queen bed, which included airport pickup. My room faced the rear, a vista of ugly buildings. I know there are cheaper places but my other choice, the Loisuites Recoleta, was $150/nt without airport transport. These prices do not include the 21% VAT. The Loisuites lobby looked very nice and offered much more space so I may try them next time.
My only issue was with the room itself - not large nor particulary characterful and with an impossibly small and poorly designed bathroom. Also the walls are thin so I heard loud snoring from next door - not a nice feeling. Also the room wasn't very ventilated and the hotel uses very strong frangrances when cleaning. I tend to spend a fair amount of time in my room and was sorry it wasn't nicer, since I really liked the people. The pool wasn't open since it was mid winter but I can see that as a wonderful bonus in the Summer.
If I go back to BA, I would love to have the same hotel but know I will probably choose another if only to avoid that useless bidet. Such a shame since the staff and bar are so excellent.
Tranquility amidst chaosfrom paws2paws
I think the first impressions when you see this hotel will remain with you for a long while as it is so grand and regal looking, although its just on the side of a very narrow street. The lobby is vast and has those fantastic high old ceilings, the whole area makes you feel very important indeed!!
Yes the rooms are smaller than one would hope and the bathrooms are tiny but small price to pay for staying at this wonderful hotel! Staff are efficient and you will feel like you have stepped back in time or on to a movie set everytime you enter from the chaotic wonder that is Buenos Aires!
Just wish I was back there now.....
Service Excellencefrom Ollie39
From a very central location, right in the heart of Buenos Aires, you can get to all the city centre attractions within minutes, and mostly on foot.
The hotel exterior is bright and impressive, and as you walk through the doors, you enter an impressive lobby area, which makes you feel immediately that you have probably made the right choice of hotel.
All staff, including the doorman, reception staff, bell boys, maids, bar staff and restaurant staff, provide excellent, friendly and intelligent service, and you only had to mention something once and it was done immediately.
Rooms were small, but very well quipped, food absolutely excellent, and prices very cheap (but this is a reflection of the Argentine economy at present rather than an individual hotel).
Having travelled around the world, I would put this boutique hotel in my top 10 for service and value.
Good, but a bit priceyfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Downsides are that the rooms are a little charmless - just your standard business style hotel. Booked through the internet this hotel is a little cheaper than other 4 star hotels in downtown BA, but still quite pricey by Argentinian standards.
Claridge Hotel and its employees are great!from DianaMoonTownship
Top Local Tips for Buenos Aires
El Establo This is a great little restaurant 3 blocks from the Hotel Claridge. We had a great steak there . It is located on the corner of Parguay and San Martin.
Tigre, Delta tour If you have an extra day and have done the main attractions and/or city tour - try a guided tout to the Delta
Confiteria Ideal-tango spot for locals If you want to see tango but don't like those choreographed dinner and show things...go to confiteria ideal! I like a more natural setting. This is their version of the Copacabana...this place used to be THE place 50 years ago and people go here to dance the tango. There are tables and the dance floor is in the middle of the hall. The locals go and dance tango. It was really beautiful in my opinion, I love dancing and I thought this was very nostalgic and beautiful. It was not crowded when I got there but I got there at about 2am. Supposedly they have tango lessons until 9pm.
