A small yet modern mid-range business hotel, the Dolmen on Suipacha is situated between the busy Avenida Santa Fe and M.T. de Alvear in the downtown Microcentro district. Most rates include a complimentary breakfast buffet, which is provided in the Mezzanine Café, though the dining area is rather small. Standard rooms with a queen bed seem comfortable and each has a minibar, storage safe, internet connection, and a desk area. I didn’t have a chance to check out the suites as they were, according to my tour-guide, all occupied. The health club on the 16th floor is also rather small, but does have a weight machine, a couple of Lifecycles, and a small swimming pool (too small for laps, in my opinion).
A small warning – the sidewalk fronting this hotel is quite narrow and the traffic flows one way to the south (right to left, when facing the street).
After a shopping stroll down Avenida Florida 2 blocks away, stop at the Havana café right around the corner on Santa Fe and pick up a box of their world famous alfajores. Or take a break at Plaza General San Martin. If you want to get away, this hotel is well-situated for public transport – just 1.5 blocks from the Gnrl. San Martin station on the Subte Linea C which is 1 stop away from the Retiro train station.
