Lovely apart/hotel in a convenient location
Posted May 29, 2015 on Hotels
We were a multi-generational group (23-80) of four and booked two suites, taking up the entire floor (front and back units). The apart/hotel concept is a good way to go to accommodate the eating and resting habits of all traveler's...e.g., for coffee in the morning, appetizers in the evening before heading out to dinner at 9 pm, tea at night, etc). The SF Suites is perfectly located in Recoleta but only a block from 9 de Julio and walking distance to the Microcenter. The suites are very spacious and comfortable -- we could all be in one unit to have a glass of wine and sit and chat. The units have 1.5 baths which makes it very convenient to get ready. Each room has a balcony with the front rooms overlooking Avenida Santa Fe and the back room overlooking a garden area. The double doors ensure that street noises are blocked out. The only drawback to the SF Suites is that this is more of an apartment than a hotel. The rooms are serviced only 1 time per week or one time per stay if less than a week, so the towels/linens aren't refreshed daily. You are also expected to provide your own amenities such as dishwashing soap, soap for the bathrooms, kitchen sponges/towels, etc, as if you had rented an apartment. We didn't understand this concept since the other apart/hotels we stayed in were run as hotels with daily service and full amenities. Overall though, this apartment is so spacious and comfortable, it is well worth booking, as long as you understand the concept.
