A modern hotel in an excellent location for sight-seeing, this good-value property has set itself high standards of service and comfort in a no-nonsense, contemporary ambiance.
The Recoleta Grand in the affluent suburb of Recoleta is highly recommended for its smart and stylish presentation, convenient central location and high level of comfort and service. There's a small pool open to the sky (Nov-Mar), and a spa and fitness centre. The restaurant, like the generously proportioned guest rooms and suites, is decorated in contemporary-chic style, with good quality furnishings. This isn't luxury, but the clean lines and uncluttered design and decoration will be pleasing to many.
All the guest rooms have minibar, coffee machine, free Wi-fi, a huge flat screen TV, air/c on and heating. There are four categories of rooms, from Junior to Grand Suite. In relation to similar properties in Buenos Aires, the hotel is also excellent value for money.

What a fantastic country with genuinely friendly, happy people; it was a delight to meet so many. Although we realise we haven't seen all that the country has to offer, we felt we did get a real impression of Argentina and loved it.ML, Cheltenham
Impossible to choose a highlight - the variety made it great. the Falls were a highlight, plus Palermo Viejo in BAKW, London
Not easy to pick out a highlight. It was a very varied trip as we had requested. The natural scenery around Salta, Iguazu, the Lakes and all over Patagonia was amazing, helped by some very favourable weather. The top hotels - Patagonia Camp, Patios de Cafayate, Arakur were great; some of the lesser hotels surpassed their descriptions - Molinos, la Yegua Loca, Anslemo;...The Andean Crossing was fabulous: fantastic scenery which we saw in perfect conditions, with very easy transfers and helpful guides.CB, Winchester
Highlights?: Tango performance and landscapes in Patagonia.DB, London
Seeing the iguazu falls was unforgettable. The hotel was beautiful with a fantastic position.LD, London
Most Memorable Moment?: Difficult to pick out one part. Patagonia Camp was fantastic. However we found the scenery in Argentinian Patagonia stunning.BS, Derby
So many highlights. We wee deeply impressed by the stunning natural beauty of Argentina. Iguazu, Humahuaca, Perrito Moreno and Mount Fitzroy in particular.JD, London
It was all highlights but Iguassu falls from Argentina and Brazil were really amazing. We were fortunate to be there when the water volume and power of the falls were especially high (which outweighed the occasional heavy rain by far).MW, Oldham
Highlights?: Perito Moreno breathtaking, Cerro frias,Patagonian lunch and staff (Anna)delightful, Iguazu spectacular, Tango dancing at El Querandi unforgettable.AM, Egham
Overall, Journey Latin America took excellent care of us on our journey through and across Argentina. We will travel with them again.US, Godalming
It seems almost invidious to single out one part of the trip given the high quality overall but it has to be Puerto Valle. Our expectations were very high given our experience thus far but those expectations were exceeded. We cannot commend them highly enough.CB, Leeds
Hotel Club Tapiz and visiting the wineries in Mendoza was a real highlight. The Iguazu falls were also incredible.CAA, London
The estancia stay was wonderful, and a really special place to spend my 30th birthday - I was thoroughly spoilt! Our trip to Quebrada de Humahuaca with Juan was also fantastic. It was also great to see the diversity of the country, and the beautiful Iguazu falls.JK, North Shields
I have wanted to visit Argentina for years. Journey Latin America helped by interpreting our desires and pulled together an excellent itinerary. Our journey will be one of the most memorable trips we have ever been on. Each accommodation was different, giving us a taste for the area, culture and the people were so friendly. What an amazing countryLT, Wimborne
Argentina is a big place - we did a lot of travelling in a short time - our constraints ; 3 weeks would do it more justice ; the people were great + the trips you organized worked really well - it was overall a great trip.KS, Brighton
Excellent trip during which we felt we saw some of the real Argentina. Delightful and helpful people abounded who had an enviable pride in their country. Excellent service from JLA (particularly Lina) and local representatives in Argentina added to our enjoyment.ML, Cheltenham
