We had a good stay overnight at the Raco. Friendly helpful staff who spoke English as well. A taxi was preordered to deliver us from the airport, a lovely man who also told us about some tourist spots during the drive. We had an early wake up call and some breakfast provided even though it was early. Nice spacious room,... More

We found this hotel through TripAdvisor and it really lives up to the reviews; wonderful place in the core of the city. Quiet rooms, great linens and modern bathrooms, friendly staff, and great location. We stopped at Raco twice during our holidays, and would certainly go back. Recommended

This is a really nice little hotel, located in a peaceful and real Buenos Aires neighborhood, close to good restaurants and coffee shops. Just a couple of blocks away from Las Violetas, a traditional "café" where you can have the greatest 5 o'clock tea I've found in all of my travels! The rooms are large, with comfortable beds which guarantee... More

We spent a couple of days at this Hotel last month and had a wonderful time! It is a great family friendly option, the staff were lovely and spoke English too, the rooms were clean, neat and it was comfortable. I found the area was quiet and safe. We would definitely come back if we ever return to Buenos Aires!

I am a travel journalist, who in the course of an average year stays in more than 50 hotels and was impressed with this hotel - so much we returned three times during our Argentinian trip. If you are looking for a hotel in the heart of tourist sites, this isn't the one, but if instead, you want somewhere with... More

Walking distance to subway with 15 minute ride to the centre of buenos aires.

The hotel is a small clean place with an out if the way location to the major attractions. The pros: Almost everyone working at the hotel speaks English and is helpful, the rooms are clean however noisy if you are a light sleeper. The arrangements for airport pickup were smooth making it nice to know you didn't have to count... More

Julyro, Gerente at Hotel Boutique Raco de Buenos Aires, responded to this review

Dear guest, Thank you for taking the time to comment on our hotel. Nevertheless, we would like to clarify certain aspects. Firstly, Raco is located in a safe and very calm area, which makes for a great night’s sleep, and is both perfect for families and solo travelers. Almagro neighborhood (located only 10 min away from Palermo, as well as... More

Very friendly staff with perfect english, gave good advice and directions about the city. Rooms are very comfortable. There are enough restaurants, cafes and parks within walking distance, alternatively the city centre is just 15 minutes on the subway, or a short taxi journey, very easy. The hotel is in a nice quiet location, very safe. Highly recommended.

We have stayed at this boutique hotel several times over the last 3 weeks, as we have popped in to Buenos Aires in between visits to other parts of the country. Our contact with the hotel started well before we arrived, as we asked for help in purchasing a book on Argentinian birds, only available in Argentina at this time.... More
