Hotel Check IN Club Frances Buenos Aires

Hotel Check IN Club Frances Buenos Aires  |  Buenos Aires, Argentina  |  Today I Checked IN for the next two nights at the Club FrancesBuenos Aires, in the neighborhood Recoleta, in Buenos Aires. During it’s more than 140 years of history, the Club has hosted personalities from politics, science, culture and sports world, always with an important presence and heritage of French origin. The hotel has 28 rooms, of with only two Deluxe Executive Suites like the one I am being hosted at.

It feels like old style traditional Argentina with true French heritage. The throw on my bed is Chinchilla, the furnitures are original, beautiful balcony, and a dry sauna in my bathroom. Suites on the front of the building have a very traditional and heavy French style, original French furnitures, wood floors, gold leaf wall plaques and heavy fabrics with prints. The back of the house is more modern in a contemporary Art Nouveau style.
The Club Frances itself, is the main building of the original house, which dates from 1866. On top of  the house, they have built a tower where most of the rooms are located. Stunning pieces of art, original wood work, marble fireplaces decorate with sophistication the club and the rooms.
The Hotel Club Francés Restaurant offers a relaxed and friendly atmosphere in a classic building full of history. Its setting is based on the restoration of antique furniture and works of art. The arrangement of the tables simulates a luxurious private dining room. Also on the second floor, the club has three rooms for events, with stunning chandeliers as the main protagonists.

I will be posting more comments and my full review on the hotel upon check out, after my two nights experience at Club Frances, during my stay in Buenos Aires. Stay tuned. CM @ Carlos Melia Recommends
