Describes itself as a 5-star hotel, but realistically it's a 4-star. Excellent location in quieter street near shopping areas, clean rooms with very small bathrooms!

Historical Traveller Reviews of Claridge Hotel

Claridge - Great Hotel in Buenos Aires

from A TripAdvisor Member
Good, small hotel in the center of Buensos Aires. Comfortable well appointed rooms. Good service. Fabulous buffet breakfast. Nice quiet bar and small restaurant. One block from Calle Florida. Friendly staff. Free internet access.

I fell in love with Buenos Aires and Claridge contributed to this!

We have just returned from a South America trip to Argentina and Brazil. We had a wonderful stay at the Claridge Hotel. The old world charm of an upper class English gentlemans club style and decor were captivating. Yes the bathroom was so small it was actually funny, but all fittings were pristine and good quality. The staff excellent, particularly the concierge Pablo who was efficient and very knowledgeable. [which even impressed the concierge at The Alvear Palace Hotel] Breakfast and bar/restaurant staff and food very good. The location when arriving late at night for us 3am seemed seedy, but in the morning I realised I was in a shoppers paradise, with the Gallerias Pacifico moments away. We found the central location of this hotel excellent with so much walkable or at the worst peanuts in a taxi. So much better than stuck out on a limb in stylish Recoleta which had been our first choice. I'd return tomorrow.

Perfectly located

from EricCR2
We booked this hotel because of the reviews of Trip Advisor, otherwise I will maybe not know about it. And here is my review:

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 thing

from lin23
The location is excellent :Florida is just around the corner, and Cabana las Lilas is within 10 minutes walk (try it once and you'll know it's important!). I loved the breakfast (dulce de leche with strawberries, aaaaah). The rooms are rather smallish (the bathroom as well), but I loved the bar in the lobby, felt so amazingly old fashioned and I very much liked it (they also serve a really good food there !). The hotel is perfecly clean and specially the concierge is extraordinary helpfull. Yes, I definitely would go back again !

Will definitely stay there again!

The hotel is in a very safe location where you can walk about 10 minutes in one direction and arrive at Plaza San Martin, or you can walk about 15 minutes in the other direction and arrive at the Plaza de Mayo. You could not ask to be more perfectly located. If you want to venture further away, the doorman can make taxis (very cheap...definitely use these!) appear as if by magic.

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 size

from NYCPeter
Just returned from a five night stay at the Claridge. This was my first time to BA so I didn't mind being in the Microcenter which was easy walking distance to all the sights. The area is abit iffy at night but I felt alot safer in BA that I do in downtown London or Paris.

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 chaos

from paws2paws
We have just returned form an eight day stay at this hotel and I just had to log on to Trip Advisor and let people know how fantastic this hotel really is!! As far as location matters, you will not get better than this. As the days went on, we realised this more and more and the city became more manageable becauce we were staying on its doorstep.

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 Excellence

from Ollie39
This was the first hotel in a three location trip to South America, and it turned out to be by far the best.

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 pricey

from A TripAdvisor Member
Very comfortable, as you'd expect from a 4 star hotel. Excellent location, though ask for a room at the back - the ones at the front get quite noisy in the morning. Polite and helpful staff, great breakfasts - a big buffet of pastries, cheeses, hams, bacon and eggs and a rather random 'hot dish' (it was stew one day!). Best thing about this hotel is being able to go for an afternoon swim after walking around the dusty streets all morning.

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
My family and I enjoyed our vacation trip to Buenas Aires and our stay at the Claridge Hotel. Pablo and Alicia (front desk) gave us excellent advice for trips and restaurants. Thanks!

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.
