Hotel Bel Air Review

Given the fancy French-style facade, you could mistake the Bel Air for a neighborhood hotel somewhere in Paris. Inside, it is basic but modern, with a round wood-panel lobby bar and a snazzy café that looks onto exclusive Arenales Street, dotted with art galleries, boutiques, and furniture stores. Rooms have handsome wooden floors and simple but stylish desks and couches in an array of earth-tone colors.

    European Flavor, good location, reasonable

    It is not a boutique hotel but it is a very European hotel with a good location a short taxi drive to Recoleta's Restaurants and Teatro Colon two of the places we were interested in visiting. We booked a Junior Suite which for a little more was roomier than regular rooms which are a little
    smallish. The bathroom was very nice and well equipped.
    We had cable TVm WiFi ( which was extra, a minus, but there is a free use of a computer downstairs) and a minibar.
    Breakfast was a continental buffet, croissants, good Orange juice and pastries. Coffee was very good.
    In all a pleasant experience at a reasonable rate we stayed four nights , we had a free night ( 3 nights savings) and also paid
    less for Sunday night. We paid aprox 180 per night while the superior room came up to 150 per night. We booked through the internet and paid a few more dollars ($35) for taxes and fees.

    Hotel Bel Air Review

    We stayed at the Hotel Bel Air for 6 nights the end of February, 2010. It was perfect for us. Many hotels are very small and seemed too minimalist for us. We also wanted a nice hotel that didn't cost to much, and was in a nice neighborhood. The Bel Air met all these criteria and exceeded our expectations. It was on a pleasant tree lined street with small shops and close to many good restaurants. There as a lovely park at the end of the block.The staff was helpful and the included breakfast was fine. The only things I felt could be improved on were the basement level breakfast room and the somewhat stark hallways. We would definitely stay here again.
