Nuestra experiencia en la Mansión Recoleta ha sido excepcional. Éramos una familia de 15 y pudimos acomodarnos cómodamente en diferentes habitaciones todas muy amplias, bien equipadas y exquisitamente decoradas. La ubicación es perfecta, en el corazón del barrio Recoleta, se puede ir caminando a varios lugares. Además quiero destacar la atención del personal a cargo del hospedaje, todos súper amables y dispuestos a ayudar y a aconsejar. Recomiendo este lugar para una estadía ideal en Buenos Aires!
