... arms. Cheek to cheek. Inhale together and exhale. That is when time stops ad the dance begins. In the tune with the music, light like a feather my feet move over the dance floor. Effortlessly picking up on the subtleties of the music to build in an adorno (embellishment) with my feet listening to the movements of my partner and just floating away in the music and the night. Two people that don't know each other in perfect harmony dancing as one. Forgetting the world around and ...

... arrived in Buenos Aires ("BA") at 5pm on Wednesday the 18th Dec (having left at midday from Sydney on the same day. Argentinian customs like to leave people in queues for a few hours so it a little while to arrive in Palermo but let me tell you, this is one EXTREMELY cool place and puts up a good fight with some of the trendiest places in NY (beats Sydney hands down) minus beaches. And I won’t start on Melbourne.
Speaking of comparisons, ...

Next up a real capping at Latte Te - Ellie's friend Daniel is the barista and did wonders for the caffeine craving with the perfect complement of froth, coffee and milk. Muchos grasias.

We shared two delicious salads: a lettuce, walnut, cheese and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Melia Recoleta Plaza Buenos Aires
Watch out for the bugs!
We (family of 6 in 3 rooms) stayed at this Melia for 1 night in December on the way to Sao Paolo. Location is good for day time touring and shopping. Not so for nighttime walks, diner or people watching. It seems that this area of BA in on a downturn. Gentlemen's club just around the corner. Check-in could definitely be faster. Breakfast room is in the basement and typical of a highway motel. Biggest drawback: Bugs. 2 of our rooms had bug infestation. We did not realize this until we returned from diner past midnight. We had to switch 2 rooms at 1am. The hotel is aware of this and even offered to vacuum the bugs out of the ceiling. I will not stay there again!
Coming from a critical old queen (lower case), this hidden gem could be FABULOUS. There are some small flaws in the service, but Melia recoleta can be half the price of the Big Luxury Hotels and is better in some ways.
Enjoyed our stay at the Sol Melia Recoleta Plaza . . . .
We just returned from a very pleasant stay at the Sol Melia Recoleta Plaza. Our room was beautiful, and the hotel is in a wonderful location, right in Recoleta, within walking distance to many great parts of the city. The nice thing about this hotel was that it was classy and luxurious, but also smaller, more of a boutique hotel . . . .great service, and very friendly and helpful staff. There is also a spa on the top floor which was great for a little relaxation. Higher price than other hotels in BA, but great value and we certainly had a pleasant stay. I think for the service, location and style -- the value is good. And, I recommend this hotel whole-heartedly to anyone!
Ok, the hotel is nice, very good service, regular room.
But the bathroom is small, VERY UNCONFORTABLE !!!
I don't recommend !
Traveling without my husband, as part of a Buenos Aires tour, I had an apartment rented for me in the Recoleta, through our Tour Operator. The apartment proved to be a nightmare - drab, dirty, no amentities - whatsoever. Fortunately for me, The Recoleta Plaza Hotel was just steps away and within hours, I left my dreary apartment and wheeled my luggage to my new digs. What a find! The hotel is beautiful - marble floors, glass elevators, a large reception and lounge area for guests to mingle, an elegant bistro with great food; as well as a jazz club downstairs that doubles as the breakfast area in the mornings. Breakfast each day was a delight! Huge assortments of freshly baked pastries, fruit, cheeses and meats, cereals, yogurts, etc., as well as your choice of eggs, bacon, sausages, pancakes, etc.
No reservation, no pillows, no breakfast
Meliá Recoleta is a new, chic and very well located hotel in Buenos Aires. However I had some problems that made my weekend much less nice than it could be.
When I arrived they didn´t find my reservation (made at the Meliá site and CONFIRMED by e-mail). I asked for pillows offered on a pillow menu and there were NONE of the pillows offered.
In the morning after I was interrupted at breakfast by a lady from the hotel asking me and my husband to register at the front desk. However, we had register and also left our credicard number at the front desk at the time we checked in on the day before.
The only nice thing was a letter and a bottle of wine from the general manager apologising for all the inconvinience.
My boyfriend and I stayed at the Melia Recoleta Plaza for four nights in early April. I absolutely loved it and cannot wait to return one day.
My family and I have have just returned to Canada from a fantastic trip to Buenos Aires and we stayed in a new Melia hotel in the Recoleta area of the city.The location is superb for walking as the streets are tree-lined and are dotted with many interesting shops and restaurants.The hotel has only been open for 3 months so everything is clean and up to date.The rooms are large and all come with a lovely seating area.Some of the rooms even come with 2 flat screen TVs(one for the bed area and another in the sitting area).
Un excelente hotel
Estuvimos en este hotel en febrero. Es realmente un "boutique" hotel. Las habitaciones son bastante limpias e confortables. Los baños también son muy buenos. Esta ubicado en Recoleta, el mejor barrio de Buenos Aires, e donde es posible, todavía, caminar tranquilamente, mismo a altas horas de la madrugada. Mas, lo que nos impresiono mas fue lo staff. Gente muy amable e gentil. Recomendamos mucho este hotel.
Charming new Small hotel
Really a boutique hotel, all the personnel at your service, you ask for something and you get it. Polite, helpfull, corteous. Rooms with wonderful beds. Located in Buenos Aires´ best area Recoleta, you can walk safely, it is located very close to these top hotels (four seasons,Caesar Park,Hyatt and behind the Alvear Palace Hotel, so you can imagine the zone). Plenty options of restaurants nearby. Next time in Bs As no doubt about where I´ll stay
