But the roof garden's a bit poor and the wifi wasn't working.

Historical Traveler Reviews A Hotel Buenos Aires
The Art Hotel is a lovely little hotel in the Recoleta neighborhood. I found this neighborhood to be a little touristy for my liking, but the Art Hotel is a few blocks from the main area and is quiet. However, it is a good, central location for exploring BA. The hotel itself is in an old mansion, and is bright and airy. It incorporates a lot of concrete, metal, and wood throughout the building (including really cool concrete sinks in the bathrooms). It has a 4-story open courtyard in the middle of the hotel, spiral staircases, and original art downstairs in the lobby and in the rooms. This hotel is beautifully and thoughtfully designed. The room was a good size, and had soaring ceilings and a canopy bed. The staff at Art Hotel was friendly and very accomodating, and they offered free internet use. The best part about this hotel was the value; it was only $70 a night!! I would certainly stay here again. Another good hotel in BA is the BoBo Hotel, where we stayed for the first half of our trip. Have fun, BA is wonderful!!
Charming Boutique Hotel in Buenos Aires
If you're looking for a small, affordable hotel with charm and character in the heart of Buenos Aires, try the Art Hotel, located on a quiet street between Recoleta and Palermo, just 2 blocks from Avenue Sante Fe and the Subte. The hotel has an art gallery on the lower floor; friendly, stylish staff; original art in each room; comfortable beds; exposed wooden beams and brick walls; high ceilings; and modern bath fixtures. The clientele is international. Room rates were $95 U.S., the last week of July and included a rather extensive continental breakfast. The staff is very service oriented. They gladly held my suitcases several days after I checked out when I took a side trip to Iguazu Falls. The hotel was the perfect retreat in the heart of busy Buenos Aires.
Amazing and fun Hotel
This was an amazing hotel for the value. Simple, but very cozy and the staff was extremely helpful. The breakfast buffet was plentiful and tasty (and open till 11am which is key if you enjoy the BA nightlife). We couldn't have asked for a better location - walking distance from everything. Also, the staff makes amazing recommendations and steers you away from the tourist traps. The ability to check your email for free downstairs in the gallery is also great. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who isnt looking for a stuffy, business-like hotel.
This hotel offers great value in wonderful Recoleta neighborhood with consistently friendly service and very helpful staff. Tasty breakfast is served until 11:00 am; free internet in lobby is available 24 hrs. The on-going art exhibition is excellent. The building itself has been completely remodeled and the rooms are tastefully decorated. The room sizes vary; the small and cozy room is really small but it did not bother us. The neighborhood is safe, 3 blocks from subway, plenty restaurants and shopping around and 10 minutes from Recoleta cemetery, 20 minutes from beautiful Bs As parks. They also provide free of charge luggage storage facility where we stored most of our luggage for 3 days while traveling to Montevideo, Uruguay.
Great hotel, great value
We were very happy with the Art Hotel. Nice character building, rooms (though small) are finished nicely. Good hot water/pressure in shower. Fantastic location. Breakfast (included) was v. good (juices, cereals, yogurt, pastries...). Staff very helpful. Free internet access provided in lobby (often a wait for the one PC). Good deal for the price!
Worth every peso!
We stayed here for 1 week. Total cost for 2 people USD $400. This little hotel does not have alot of frills but the breakfast is excellent and staff is very helpful. You're in walking distance to shopping, sights and great dining. Some wonderful art in the lobby as well. Make sure to use the old elevator at least once.
OK but not worth the price
this place was great when it was half the price. Now that they've doubled the prices, I don't think it's so great any more.
If only all hotels were like this - can't wait to go back
This hotel is a unique, stylish boutique choice conveniently close to the subte and near some of the major shopping streets of BA. We loved the friendly staff, the lovely rooms, the art gallery downstairs, and the delicious breakfast. We suffered from no noise problems in our first floor room. Our stay was so charming that it was easy to overlook the relatively small size of the rooms (the exposed brick ceilings were soaring) and the paucity of daylight. With choices like this, I can't understand how anybody chooses to stay in big boring chain business hotels.
This hotel is quite special. I stayed there for 5 nights in December and enjoyed it. The staff was genuinely interested in getting everything right and helped me to no end with restaurant and tour reservations, as well spending some time at a top notch spa in the neighborhood. The hotel is a completely renovated 7-story former house with a good art gallery on the ground floor and a terrace on the roof (where I read in the sun every morning). Attention to historic detail is a plus with large wood/glass doors leading to each guest room and large heavy drapes for privacy. The breakfast was quite hearty and is included in the price.
The main drawback is that there are no carpets on any of the floors, including the spiral staircase, so each footstep echos from room to room and through the staircase which sometimes made sleeping difficult (I wore earplugs a few times). The lack of carpeting made the interior noise sometimes worse than the exterior noise and the heavy drapes were not always effective (although quite stylish). The price is great for the location and service. Because the hotel did not have room for me I moved to the Etoile, which is a 5 star hotel in the same neighborhood, and missed the Art Hotel. I want to go back!
Excellent boutique hotel in Recoleta. 10 minute walk to cemetery. very helpful staff. wonderful location. great value.

Arrived 08:25 in hot sunshine. Jam-packed roads, a cosy hotel and a day to get my bearings. After a snooze and a shower I walked around, and booked a ticket to the opera house and a trip to Colonia, Uruguay. Things I've noticed on my first day: The traffic is awful. It took two hours to get to the hotel Every fifth shop seems to be a chemist's …
... After 6 weeks in the big outdoors it was amazing to be in this big bustling city with its amazingly cheap cultural offerings. We girls explored te markets of St Telmo, went to La Bomba del tiempo which is a 2 hour percussion show producing a beat that doesn't let you stand still. In the end I went about 5 Mondays to see them play. Might have also been because the smell reminded me so much if home;). I really did enjoy it! We went to see La Forza Bruta. A show like nothing I had seen ...
... who vied for power. Painting the building pink to recognize the red of one faction and the white of the other seemed like the most expedient and politically correct thing to do at the time, but also it symbolically illustrated the union of the two factions. We pass Plaza de Mayo, a square where political protests have historically been held. Two protests are going now, despite the rain. Yes, it continues to rain. We stop at Catedral Metropolitana, ...
... walked back to the harbour area and wandered round the little boutique shops that had some fantastic furniture at amazingly low prices that we dreamt about shipping home and kitting out our dream house.
When we returned from our day trip we packed up ready for our flight from Buenos Aires to Lima the next day, a little sad to leave our little apartment and the wonderful steak but ready for the next art of our adventure and some more exciting sites to visit.
