Marseille des Anges Hotel: Historic comfort in an excellent location Marseille des Anges Hotel Review
Show Prices

We were looking for a place to stay in Buenos Aires that would offer safe and easy options to explore on foot. BA is a world city, and it's a place that you can absolutely drop $800 a night for a hotel room if you want. We didn't "want". We zeroed in on this property because it was in Recoleta, one of the more fashionable parts of the city, and it was a 19th century mansion that had been converted into a hotel. We assumed - and were right - that we'd enjoy the historic gradeur.

What we didn't realize when we made the reservation was how VERY helpful and accommodating the hotel staff would be. The hotel is described (on their website) as being a boutique hotel, which to me can sometimes equal a bit of uppity attitude from the staff. Not so at the Marseilles des Anges.

I began an email correspondence with a fellow named Matías Turiaci, and it proved to be both valuable and pleasant. This fellow will answer all your questions, and gives excellent advice on all matters involving the traveller. I highly recommend that you specifically email him if you choose to make reservations with the Marseille des Anges. (see below for email addy)

Unique Qualities: The qualities themselves aren't unique - they are abundantly available throughout BA. Comfort, Quiet, Convenience, Friendly Staff. What IS unique is finding such an excellent hotel at a bargain price of approximately US$145 per night in the heart of toney Recoleta. The location is incredible, a quiet side street a couple of blocks from the grand 9th of July Avenue. (about 16 lanes)

Address: Arenales 1392 / 4, Buenos Aires, C1061AAN, Argentina

Price Comparison: less expensive than average

Directions: I couldn't begin to tell you how to find the place, but suffice to say - it's in Recoleta, on a quiet street about 2 blocks from the grand Avenue 9th of July. It's within easy walking distance (maybe 8 blocks) of famous Recoleta Cemetary.
