With just two big rooms on every floor, you’re assured of a calm stay at CasaCalma.
The rooms have big windows which look out on a green vertical garden; it lets in the light but masks Buenos Aires’ less than picturesque rooftops. Rooms are a calm white, with earth tone highlights. You’ll relax in a king size bed and a pillow set of feather, memory foam and cervical pillows will ensure a great sleep.
The room has a large compartmentalized closet, a DVD micro theater with flat screen TV, iPod dock, and safe. Casa Calma subscribes to PressReader so you can access newspapers and magazines from all over the world. Each room has a Nespresso machine with pods and a large snack selection for purchase.
The bathroom area is near the entrance — a big area off to the side which holds a jacuzzi tub for two, a long double-sinked counter, and a glassed in shower. The toilet and bidet are separated from the rest of the room by a smoked glass swinging door. “Wellness Boutique” items such as organic bath foam and salts, essential oil and body lotion are available for purchase.
A breakfast of several choices and made-to-order eggs is served off the lobby. The area serves as an honour bar for drinks and snacks available 24-hours.
Casa Calma’s location makes you close to everything. You’re a 15 minute walk to the famous Recoleta Cemetery, and about the same to Casa Rosada, the “pink house” which is the office of Argentina’s president. The Plaza de Mayo is here too, the site of Evita’s famous speech and daily protests by politically-aware Porteños.
