We used the Bel Air as our home base while visiting BA and Uraguay. The hotel is almost non descript. Our room was very comfortable and clean. The lobby is small. There are only two chairs to sit in while waiting for a cab. This hotel might benefit from getting a concierge although not sure if that might change its... More

We stayed in two adjoining rooms at this hotel (family of four). The location was great and we walked to most of the major attractions from our hotel. The breakfasts were delicious and the rooms were spacious, but basic. There were plenty of restaurants for dinner nearby. The staff at the front desk were very helpful. I would stay at... More

The hotel is very clean. Great location close to many eateries and parks. The staff was very helpfull with walking directions and planning tours. The room was a little small but comfortable. The breakfast was great especially the croisants (best I ever had). I would go back in a heart beat.

The hotel is located on the edge of Recolletta, near shops, restaurants, a nice square, and minutes away from even more cool stuff.

I have been there for one week, for an international meeting. The organisers recommended this hotel (together with some other ones in the vicinity). Based on Tripadvisor and also Booking.com reviews, I preffered this 3* hotel to some other 4* rated hotels (where my colleagues were not so happy with, but I will not tell the names). Good check-in to... More

I highly recommend Hotel Bel Air in Buenos Aires. Very well located, in a beautiful and safe zone. Near restaurants and stores and walking distance from many interesting places. Good value for money. Kind personnel in the front desk. I will visit this hotel again!

The Hotel Bel Air worked perfectly for us and our extended family, 5 adults and two teenagers, for a one-week stay. The free breakfast was excellent; the front desk staff was very helpful; our hotel-arranged transfers to and from the airport were seamless; the room staff were quick and efficient when we blew a fuse with an iron.

We spent a couple of nights in the Hotel Bel Air in Ricoleta and were very pleased. The room was large and very quiet. The breakfast was good although did not have quite as large a selection as some of the other hotels we stayed in South America did. The location can't be beat, as the neighborhood is primarily residential,... More

Staying in Recoleta

Neighbourhood Profile
Characterised by the French-style mansions which are the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this neighbourhood is an experience like no other in Buenos Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll also find a rich cultural scene centred on the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library, and the Recoleta Cultural Center; as well as some great shopping spots, like the Buenos Aires Design Mall with an artists' fair set up in Plaza Francia every weekend.
