Cosy relaxing hotelPosted Mar 19, 2013
Pros: The garden and swimming pool
Cons: Steep steps up to the room
Location: Near to the international airport, but quiet
This hotel is out of town but handy for the International airport. It is a small (11 rooms) cosy guest house style, and suitable for families and overnight solo travellers wanting some peace and relaxation. The garden and swim pool are the best features of this hotel, and the garden is really well kept and beautiful. There are also provisions for children with some swings and play structures. The main house is full of history and interesting decor. A small friendly family dog lives here. The staff are very accommodating and made lunch for me especially at a very inexpensive rate. I was also able to keep my room until the evening for a small extra charge, and transport was booked for me for my late night intercontinental flight. Internet was free. A few items were disappointing - the spa bath that did not emit bubbles (a maintenance problem), and also the annoying small plane flying overhead for several hours on Sunday advertising something by loudspeaker, and destroying the otherwise peaceful environment - although this was NOT the hotel's fault. However, this may be a common occurrence in the area near the airport. One thing to be noted is that some rooms are up a steep flight of stairs with no elevator access. Generally I enjoyed my stay.

A one night stayPosted Mar 15, 2013 on Hotels.com
Coming from the port it was a very long ride and the cab's GPS brought us through terrible neighborhoods. Even my taxi driver was concerned for my safety! suddenly the area improved and the hotel was quite nice. Once there, one is captive for food, etc. the family was very nice and helpful. I spent the afternoon in the nice living room of the house, using free wifi and it was pleasant. the grounds were nice and the pool looked clean, although I did not use it. It was very quiet and I felt safe behind walls and a gate. An 8:30 am flight meant I missed any breakfast. I did not eat dinner there, snacking on protein bars after weeks of overeating. I was offered a dinner at an American time vs. the very late dinner that is standard in the country. I would stay there again for an overnight before an early morning flight out. It would not be a good place for touring Buenos Aires as it is too far out and the taxi prices are very high. At 5:45 am I discovered a guard on duty inside the house, which I didn't know ahead of time.

La Casa de MRPosted Jan 21, 2013
Couldn't get the aircon to work, and the guard wouldn't let me in for breakfast before I left early, but a reasonable place to stay if you are just wanting to crash for a night waiting for a flight. Nice and clean and comfortable. Gated and secure, but not near any shops, restaurants or eating places, so if you arrive late like me, its another taxi ride for a meal, so not super convenient.

Could be better !Posted Jan 16, 2013 on Hotels.com
the general condition of the hotel is disappointing....they should make an effort with the maintenance: garden, spa and restaurant....furniture of the room also very bad....only positiv point is the late check-out until 14h00 !

Great stay if you want to be close to the airportPosted Dec 19, 2012 on Hotels.com
It was a reasonably priced clean nice hotel close to the airport. The staff are very helpful, even with a language barrier (only one person spoke English there and I speak no Spanish) they go out of their way to accomodate you. A continental breakfast is included in the price but they will also provide you with dinner at a fair price. The grounds are lovely and secluded so while I was only there overnight, it was a very pleasant stay.
AirportPosted Dec 3, 2012 on Hotels.com
Though the hotel is near to the EZE airport, the surrounding neighbourhood is not safe. The hotel itself is highly secured with gate and security guard. It is located in a residential area. We had meals at the hotel restaurant. The food quality is poor. However, the owner and staff were very helpful and friendly. We stayed at the main building, and our room looked very tired. There is a separate building which looks very modern but we didn't know the conditions of those rooms.

Magical experiencePosted Nov 6, 2012 on Hotels.com
Our last night in Argentina. We booked the room because of the photo's and the location close to the airport. We had a very early flight and didn't want to get so early. The location of Casa de MR is in a residential area. What we didn't realize that location really added to the charm and intimate feel Casa de Mar provided. The rooms were very clean, well appointed with a beautiful of the garden and grounds. The hotel chef came out and discussed with us what was available to eat and helped us select a wine. The food was perfect as was the wine. This was one of the finest hotel experiences of my life.

A pleasant oasis but a little difficult to find.Posted Nov 3, 2012
Pros: The helpful staff, tasteful room and garden setting.
Cons: Getting there from Ezeiza airport at night
Location: Good for an overnight stay. I cannot comment on the location for a longer stay.
The hotel itself is very comfortable and tasteful, more like a gracious home, and set in a beautiful garden which I noticed at breakfast as I had arrived late (9 pm) for an overnight stay only. The entry is through large security gates with an intercom. The staff were also very helpful and friendly. However, BEWARE OF THE TAXI TOUTS who approach you as you leave the airport building. I foolishly negotiated a fare for 150 ARS, having no idea what the cost should be. (The information desk attendant was vague.) This turned out to be triple the return fare next morning. I believe there is an official? cab rank outside terminal B. The journey from the airport, through rather uninviting areas, took about 30 mins including three stops for the taxi driver to ask directions. So the two fares did add significantly to the overnight cost. I would suggest phoning the hotel from the airport or prearranging transport with the hotel.
