My husband and I stayed at Hotel Babel for 6 nights in December of 2015. We can't speak more highly of the hotel and the service provided by the staff, and in particular, Lauro and Miguel. I had recently sprained my ankle, and the staff were more than accommodating, ensuring we were on the ground floor so as not to... More

We used TA to book the hotel in the first place, Its location in San Telmo is a fantastic to walk everywhere. We managed to be here for the sunday markets along the full length of Defensa St and this was a real treat - especially the street corner bands. Jazz, Blues, Latin American, they were all great. Good restaurants... More

This is a very nice small boutique hotel in San Telmo, but very close to Puerto Madero. The hotel is nice, offers great value in comparison with the rates of more standard hotels, and it gets great value due to the location. Rooms were nice and the service in the hotel was good. Overall a nice stay

we had a very good time in Buenos Aires, also thanks to the good choice of the hotel. This little hotel is very nice: it is in a small building that has been recently restored in a fine and modern way from the architectural point of view. The rooms are comfortable and well furnished, and the atmosphere is really friendly... More

The tripadvisor rating for this hotel is way too generous. The rooms are little and under equipped. The Internet constantly disconnects and my room has a broken A/C, the staff has repeatedly said that they are going to fix, it's been three days.and it is still broken. I have requested a change of room with no luck. The size of... More

This hotel is in a great location, in San Telmo near lots of shops and restaurants. The hotel lobby was very cute, but I cannot speak to the quality of the rooms because we did not get to stay in our room. When we arrived, we were told there were maintenance issues with the hotel and they were moving everyone... More

Cute little San Telmo hotel that indeed has a unique charm and warm assistance. Rooms are relatively small but well-appointed, still we were able to enjoy a King bed room on the first floor that was great. They serve an adequate complimentary continental breakfast and have coffee, juice, and fruit bowls, cereal, yogurt and cold water. Right in the heart... More

I spent five days at Hotel Babel. It's a small property in a converted old house in the oldest part of Buenos Aires - San Telmo. There are only nine rooms, but the room in which I stayed is spacious and provides all that I needed. Breakfast was a nice surprise too. I was told that Argetinians usually skip breakfast... More

Staying in San Telmo

Neighborhood Profile
San Telmo
Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San Telmo is defined by the tango, the dance that made Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many different cultures: a true child of immigration, much like the city itself. Nowadays, it comes alive after dark in the milongas (dance parties) attended by both locals and visitors alike, who dance until the wee hours of the morning. During the day, the antique shops and classic cafés and bars around Plaza Dorrego dominate the scene. The emblematic Bar Plaza Dorrego, with its green awnings, checkered tile floors, and wooden interiors, takes you back in time the moment you step inside. For true porteño traditions, San Telmo is the place to be.
