Amazing service from Diego, Alejandra, and the third staff member (sorry, forgot her name). They really went above and beyond and made my stay memorable. It's easy to see why most people give this boutique hotel five stars and glowing reviews. I'm also glad I stayed in The Glu's neighborhood (Palermo Viejo, aka Palermo Soho) and not the more staid...

We stayed a total of six nights at this hotel. Four nights when we first arrived in Buenos Aires and two nights at the end of our three week visit of Argentina. I must say all of the staff are very friendly, provide great assistance for what ever we needed (transportation, restaurants, etc), and were sincere in making our stay... More

I have little to add to other reviews. The service and room were both great. If you are new to Buenos Aires then you should bear in mind that the location in Palmero Soho is not "downtown". The district has some of the hallmarks of other Soho districts in London and New York; funky rather than smart - but we... More

I stayed at The Glu for 2 nights and met 5 different customer service representatives. One consistent theme is all of them show genuine willingness to go beyond necessary to understand the customer and fulfill their needs. During my stay, I discovered some of my flights have been affected by the national strike. Hotel staff helped me established contact with... More

It always gives a great first impression when warmly greeted at a hotel and this is what Glu does so well. Lots of information (with maps) about BA and their English is excellent too. Their willingness to answer our questions at anytime, over our 5 nights, helped us to make the most of our stay. No need for costly tours... More

Based on trip advisor reviews I chose the Glu. The area was hip and up and coming. Great area to walk and see the hip and cool part of Buenos Aires. I loved my room. Very very comfortable. The staff is what made my stay amazing. Awesome recommendations. Great customer service and always a helpful smile. I strongly recommend the... More

A very convenient and comfortable hotel. The room was large, we had a nice balcony, with good light and a lot of counter space. But what made our stay fantastic was the dedication, cheerfulness, and helpfulness of the charming Alejandra and Carolina at the front desk, who did everything they could to make our stay in Buenos Aires as comfortable...

The hotel was great, but the service made the hotel. Alejandra was so friendly and helpful from the moment we arrived that we knew we were going to enjoy our stay. The rooms are spacious and nicely fitted out. Breakfast is good, although simple (continental). A nice touch is a the free laundry, which was well used as we'd just... More

My friend and I visited Buenos Aires last November to attend a 2 week tango seminar. We wanted a place that was close to the tango venues, comfortable, safe, and hopefully have a place where we could relax and after an intense day of class. The Glu totally fit the bill, the rooms are spacious, the rooftop hot tub was... More

Staying in Palermo

Neighborhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighborhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favorite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
