Historical Traveler Reviews Moreno Hotel Buenos Aires
Dies ist ein erstklassiges Hotel für Geschäftsreisende, die alleine unterwegs sind. Ich verbrachte hier Ende August 10 Tage. Die Zimmergröße war für eine Person spitze, das Bett bequem. In dem Zimmer, das ich hatte, gab es sowohl eine Internetverbindung mit als auch ohne Kabel und einen komfortablen Schreibtisch zum Arbeiten. Das Zimmer verfügt über eine regulierbare Klimaanlage.
Das Hotel ist modern und sauber - Ich glaube, es wurde gerade erst eröffnet. Auch das Frühstück war gut. Ich würde auf jeden Fall wieder hier übernachten.
"Great downtown hotel in Buenos Aires"
I stayed at the Moreno during the first week of September 2007. This was my first time in Buenos Aires. I was visiting my brother who was a guest student at the Universidad Del Cine (filming). This is a wonderful hotel in the downtown section (or San Telmo) of Buenos Aires.
The suite was brand new and big with beautiful hardwood floors. The staff was very courteous and the service was excellent from the front desk receptionists to the housekeepers. The staff spoke excellent English, had customer friendly service attitude, and paid attention to the little things. For example: on my first day, there was only one Regular Coke in the minibar and I called and had two more bottle sent up. Every day after that the maid left three bottles of Coke in my minibar. Each morning a delicious complimentary breakfast was delivered to our room.
It is about 5 minutes to walk to the Metro, however, cabs are readily available. It is very near the Mall Galerias Pacifico which has many good restaurants and fast food. This is a wonderful hotel and I highly recommend it.
My boyfriend and I spent two nights at Moreno and we wished we had spent an extra night there... It's a really nice hotel with a first class attention and good rates! Excellent value!
The room we booked was excellent: very spacious with high ceilings and many windows. The staff was very helpful, friendly and pleasant, and served us a really nice breakfast in the room.
We will definitely stay there in our next trip to Argentina!
Mein Freund und ich verbrachten zwei Nächte im Moreno und wären gerne noch eine Nacht länger geblieben. Es ist ein echt schönes, äußerst aufmerksames Hotel mit guten Preisen! Ein hervorragendes Preis-Leistungsverhältnis!
Das Zimmer, das wir buchten, war spitzenklasse: sehr geräumig und mit hohen Decken und vielen Fenstern. Die Angestellten waren sehr hilfsbereit, freundlich und angenehm und servierten uns im Zimmer ein echt gutes Frühstück. Wir werden auf jeden Fall auf unserer nächsten Reise nach Argentinien hier übernachten!
Ottimo rapporto qualità/prezzo
Il mio ragazzo e io abbiamo passato due notti al Moreno e ci sarebbe piaciuto rimanere una terza... Questo è davvero un bell'albergo con un servizio di prima classe e tariffe buone. Ottimo rapporto qualità/prezzo!
La camera che abbiamo prenotato si è rivelata eccellente: era molto spaziosa, con soffitti alti e molte finestre. Il personale era molto premuroso, cordiale e attento e ci ha servito una colazione deliziosa in camera.
La prossima volta che ci troviamo in Argentina ci torneremo senz'altro!
¡Una relación calidad-precio extraordinaria!
Mi novio y yo pasamos dos noches en el Moreno y nos hubiera gustado pasar una noche más allí...¡Es un hotel fantástico, con un atención de primera clase y buenos precios! ¡Tiene una relación calidad-precio extraordinaria!
La habitación que reservamos era magnífica: muy amplia con techos altos y muchas ventanas. El personal era muy servicial, amable y agradable, y nos trajeron un desayuno realmente bueno a la habitación.
¡Sin duda nos alojaremos allí la próxima vez que vayamos a Argentina!
Lots of Style, Little Substance (with a first-rate staff)
Oh, how I wanted to love Moreno Buenos Aires, a brand-new boutique hotel nudged between the Plaza de Mayo and San Telmo, home of the tango. After 15 years as a frequent guest-points crazed road warrior, the merits of an outstanding boutique hotel are gaining appreciation. This was my fifth trip to Buenos Aires (the third this year), so I decided to try something different. I wanted to return to the office, and proudly announce that I had found a new hidden gem in this city that I adore. Unfortunately, Moreno has leaps and bounds to make before it can merit that honor.
Before saying anything else, I do want to point out that this hotel has the most sincere and genial front desk staff I have ever encountered. Carolina, Guido and the two Juans were fantastic. It was like having a team of personal assistants for the duration of my seven-night stay. Manager Daiana was professional and accommodating, graciously arranging for two gratis in-room 30 minute massages as compensation for our various inconveniences. The bell staff was also terrific.
I, like the previous reviewer, stayed in the premium J loft (at $240 night--hefty for BsAs). A friend and a colleague each stayed in a standard room. I couldn't agree more about J loft's aesthetics--roomy, with a nice painting on the wall, a huge jacuzzi tub, and attractive modern bubble-shade and dark-wood lamps (that you can buy in Design Buenos Aires if they appeal to you). The bedding was quite comfortable, the towels fluffy, the couch wonderful for sprawling out, and the in-room continental breakfast a nice touch.
The rooms, unfortunately, have some serious design flaws that are not surmounted by the the aesthetics and personable employees.
Disclaimer: I realize that at times, I will sound like Gladys Kravitz, but I am not a complainer--really!
Gripe list, in no particular order:
Constant noise from construction. Daiana, the manager, stopped the construction at 5:00 pm on Friday, when I complained that I'd had a difficult week's work and just wanted to rest.
Glass armoire door fell onto me and broke into pieces (twice). I was not hurt, but on the second instance, I respectfully requested that the door not be replaced for the duration of my stay.
The hotel restaurant is not yet open--something Daiana reminded me is stated on the hotel's website ("coming soon, restaurant" on the restaurant and bar page, but NOT on the reservations or home page); however, this was not stated on the e-mail confirmation. I made my reservation over one month in advance, and this being a business trip, I would have preferred room service or dinner in the hotel once or twice.
Rooftop Spa and Gym - also not open (stated on target website pages, but not on reservations or home page).
The cable went out on in the neighborhood on Thursday at 5:30 pm, and never went back on. Not the fault of the hotel, but when there is no radio in the room to drown out background noise, you appreciate your TV more.
More about the radio/clock situation: the in-room alarm clock is a small, silver wind-up job. Cute, but entirely impractical.
I constantly stubbed my toes on a doorstop anchored in the middle of the bathroom floor, that was installed to prevent the door's hitting the toilet and bidet.
Sinks at child-height--an interesting visual, but a watery mess when trying to wash one's face.
Glass shower door doesn't open, so each morning, one is treated to a cold blast as s/he switches the flow from tub to showerhead.
Task lighting is just plain awful. There is no other way to put it. Bedside and desk lamps are just not strong enough for reading. The corner of the room by the couch is completely dark, and there is no lighting over the grand, full-length mirror. Mood lighting is counterintuitive when trying check presentability before walking out the door. A floor lamp near the couch seems essential.
Single-pane windows and thin walls/floors do not control for street or in-hotel noise.
No washcloths, no facial tissues. These do not seem at all important until you find yourself reaching for one!
Finally, the worst aspect of the visit (unfortunately beyond management's control)--blaring, pulsating, airport-decibel level club music and constant yelling and singing in the street on Friday and Saturday night until...(well, it is 6:15 am now on Sunday morning, and it the sound of revelrie fills my room still). I specifically asked on Saturday, if there would be a repeat of Friday's festivities and was told no. Had I known, I would have checked out. I have now experienced two consecutive sleepless nights on what was supposed to be my post-work respite. At 5:00 am, I stomped down to the front desk, a madwoman in pajamas, and requested a late checkout to compensate for this. I was immediately cleared for 3:00 pm, and will find out later if my 6:00 pm request will be accommodated. A tip for Moreno management: earplugs on every nightstand!
All-in-all, this property has potential, but serious improvements are needed before I would consider staying again.
For now, it's back to collecting Honored Guest points at the Marriott...
My husband and I visited Buenos Aires last week. We could only stay 3 days so we wanted to be near all the major attractions... and Moreno's location was fantastic for us!
The Hotel is very modern (the staff told me the Hotel opened 15 days ago, so it's all brand new!) but the entire decor is in an art-deco style; very classy.
The staff is very professional and helpful: they always called us by our names. The receptionist that welcomes us was Carolina: she really took time explaining us about the city and the area... she even advised us to rush to the flea market in Dorrego square (we didn't know about it! we arrived on a Sunday afternoon and on Monday it is closed): great recommendation! We were fascinated and we bought many things!
When we arrived to our room we couldn't believe how big it was! Tremendously spacious and luminous! We stay at the "J Loft": 67 square meters, jacuzzi, huge flat TV screen, minibar, bathtub, workdesk, an original painting (great design touch)... what else can you ask for?!
We really enjoyed our stay at Moreno, and we are already looking forward to going to Buenos Aires again and we are definitely going to stay there again! We recommend it: 100%!
Absolument magnifique !
Mon mari et moi sommes allés à Buenos Aires la semaine dernière. Nous ne pouvions rester que 3 jours aussi désirions-nous nous trouver près de toutes les attractions touristiques et l'emplacement du Moreno était idéal pour nous !
L'hôtel est très moderne (les employés m'ont dit qu'il avait ouvert 15 jours plus tôt et il était donc flambant neuf !) et le décor est entièrement dans le style art-déco ; très chic.
Le personnel est très professionnel et très serviable ; on se servait toujours de notre nom pour nous parler. La réceptionniste qui nous a accueillis s'appelait Carolina ; elle a pris tout son temps pour nous expliquer les particularités de la ville et du quartier...et elle nous a même conseillés de nous précipiter au marché aux puces de la place Dorrego (nous n'en avions jamais entendu parler ! nous étions arrivés un dimanche après-midi et il est fermé le lundi) : une recommandation précieuse ! Nous avons été fascinés et avons acheté beaucoup de choses !
Quand nous sommes entrés dans notre chambre nous avons été sidérés par ses dimensions ! Extrêmement spacieuse et claire ! Nous sommes restés au "J Loft" 67 mètres carrés, jacuzzi, énorme télé à écran plat, bar miniature, baignoire, bureau, une peinture originale (un détail apprécié)...que pouvoir demander de plus ?
Nous avons vraiment apprécié notre séjour au Moreno et nous attendons déjà l'occasion de retourner à Buenos Aires et de redescendre dans cet hôtel ! Nous le recommandons à 100% !

... apparently a very popular cartoon character in SA. Then had tango photos with tango dancer buskers in the streets. The whole place and the street market were absolutely crowded and went on for kilometres!
We walked for four hours!
From San Telmo, we walked past Florida then all the way to Av Pellegrini y Av Santa Fe, at which point our feet were aching, we just needed to break it. Had dinner and ...
Apparently summer begins today. Phew!
We have been at base camp now since our Patagonia trip and it has steadily been getting hotter and hotter. Interestingly the locals are saying it's hotter than they expect this time of year. According to people we chat to, that was still spring and summer starts today. I can now see the benefit of all the concrete in our apartment. When we first arrived I was taken aback to find (polished) concrete ...
... dodgy La Boca (we were scared going at night). However it turned out to be an amazing Tango live music show with yummy cheap argentinian food and red wine. There wasn´t a single tourist in the house so were very lucky.
We are off to Salta today by aeroplane to meet another friend we made in Rio and go on a roadtrip around Salta for a couple of days. Naturally we are very excited. Miss you all xxxxxx
