We got up early to catch the bus to Buenos Aires. It departed at 10am and was no messing about as we had already bought our ticket a few days ago. The bus took 5 hours to get to the city, arriving at around 3pm, the station was fairly near to the area we would be staying in, puerto madero, but as it is a port the underground doesn't reach this area …
... tango music can be heard everywhere. We continued past the converted warehouses on the dockside at Puerto Madero, now trendy bars, restaurants and museums and the green parks of Palermo Soho to the area of Recoleta where our tour concluded. A quick bite of lunch at a micro brewery in the square, making the most of the beautiful sunshine. We decided to take a tour of the cemetery, apparently a highlight ...
... br> We hailed a taxi on the street and as i was putting on my seatbelt, the driver told me i had nothing to worry about and i didnt need my seat belt. Literally 2 seconds later, he turned the wrong way up a one way street and i explained to him, that i was in fact goin to wear my belt. We arrived in the plaza, found a restaurant and ordered. The meal was absolutely terrible, and we all had pretty dampened spirits so we decided to call it an early ...
... grandparents are trying to find their grandchildren but some dont want to be found as their adoptive parents may be old secret militia and will go to jail for kidnapping a child and (if they did) killing the democratic parents.

... and we were able to tour the inside because the president was away that day so it is open to the public. Another noteworthy sight, and more impressive one in my opinion is that of the Teatro Colón Opera House. Ranked in the top five Opera houses world wide for over a century, this building is amazing. It boasts 4 different kinds of marble, hand laid tile mosaics, stain glass windows, and a golden hall that was designed to imitate the Palace ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Madero Buenos Aires
I rented a junior suite at the Madero for 4 nights in July. I found the service to be excellent, at the front desk, room service, and restaurants (Red).
We stayed here from August 3 - 6, 2005. It is a very nice hotel, well fitted out, spotlessly clean, and friendly, capable staff. My son checked in at 11 AM following a flight from the US and a room was ready for him. I came in from Australia that evening. The room was a decent size, had a nice balcony, refrigerator, and extensive cable tv, with many English stations. Most of the staff spoke English. The health club was okay, with decent equipment including treadmills, bicycles, a cross trainer, and weights. Most of the staff spoke English.
Stayed at this hotel for a week in November of '04, just after it had opened. This is one of those hotels that will really appeal to some and not at all to others. The feel is similar to Westin's "W" concept or Le Meridian's "Art + Tech" offering -- hip, modern, probably even a little pretentious. The rooms we got were great -- dark hardwood flooring, sleek cabinetry, low-voltage lighting and all-white linens. Generous balconies as well, great for dragging a chair out onto and drinking wine into the early morning hours. There's also a pool and a rooftop balcony (good for drying out on), and a spa that quite frankly looked a little underwhelming. A nice touch were the two internet-ready PCs in the lobby, great for checking email or looking up travel info.
My partner and I stayed at this hotel for three nights in March. We had booked this hotel as part of a package via a travel agent and we got a great rate for it. The hotel is located just a block from the Puerto Madero restaurants and there are lots of them to choose from.
After reading the rave reviews for this hotel, I expected my recent stay to be flawless. I couldn't have been more wrong--- what a disaster!!! This place is over-hyped and way over-rated. My experience started off awful and just got worse. After an 11 hour flight I arrived at the hotel only to be informed that "our records show that you were supposed to arrive yesterday. We have no reservation for you for today." After providing my printed Orbitz confirmation for the day I arrived, the front desk staff would still not budge. I then had to place an international call to Orbitz (at my $45.00 expense) in order to get the problem resolved. The reservation error turned out to be incorrect and the front desk staff smugly turned over my key with not even the smallest apology. From that point forward, I found the front desk staff, security, and concierge personnel to be inattentive, rude, and completely uninterested in being the least bit helpful. This continued to the day of my departure. Even with plenty of room in the hotel, I was unable to secure a late 6pm check-out. Nearly all BA hotels will do this since they know that flights back the US depart in the late evening. Not this place... For a few more dollars, go to the Hilton. Its closer to most of the important destinations in town and has a far more competent and helpful staff.
Nice hotel, but need a cab
Outside from having to wait in the lobby until 2 pm to check in (after a flight tht arrived at 10 am), I have no complaints and agree with the earlier posts- this is a beautiful, modern hotel with large rooms- much larger than a comparable Sofitel in Europe. The only drawback is that there is not much to see within walking distance- but cabs are very cheap ($1 to Cabana Las Lilas, $2 to Plaza de Mayo). Overall, a very good value.
A Must Stay!
No stuffiness or pretense at this awesome, modern, sleek hotel. The decor is trendy minimal-Asia meets Scandinavian design-and the service is simply outstanding and every employee goes out of their way to accommodate. The rooms are large and comfy. Walk through the lobby in your tux and gown or bathrobe and flip flops-no one cares. It's hip, classy and fun. We've stayed in many hotels and we'll be back at this one in a heart beat.
P.S- All head to the nearby Cabana Las Lilas- go across the street to Siga La Vacca instead.
Fabulous hotel - A must
Thanks to this site, we were saved from staying at the Claridge hotel in Buenos Aires and at the last minute changed to the brand new Sofitel in Puerto Madero. Having travelled all around the world and knowing that a 5 star abroad may not be the same thing as in the U.S. this hotel holds up to its rating. The rooms are very modern and decorated in a simliar fashion to the W line of hotels. The staff could not have been nicer and more accomodating and the service was top notch. The breakfast was the best in all of Argentina and it was in a great neighborhood with access to many fabulous restaurants.
