Very comfortable room; quiet large with a nice bathroom. Close to places to eat but a little far from the popular "tourist" sights. Reception was extremely helpful! Very close to subway but did not trust my Spanish to ride it.

Really a wonderful place and a super value! A very well done mix between old and modern architecture. The staff was just lovely, my room was amazing. You get the real feeling of a Buenos Aires neighborhood. I cannot stop gushing, I highly recommend this place.

As a tourist in Buenos Aires, you want a hotel with a good location to be able to see the sights, walk to good restaurants at night or visit trendy bars. Unfortunately, this is not Almagro. We cannot fault Hotel Boutique Raco. The staff are absolutely lovely - they could not be more attentive, more helpful or more welcoming. They... More

Dear guest, Thank you for taking the time to give your opinion 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... More

This place is a true gem. The staff speak English fluently. The dinner recommendation turned out to be one of the best meals we had in Argentina and the suggestions for sightseeing were spot on! Rooms are spacious, clean and very quiet. The location is 5 minutes from the subway stop in a very nice section of town. Got the... More

I'm an Australian with no Spanish speaking ability what so ever. The girls Natalia and V were very good English speakers and went out of their way to help me book events and make sure I could have a great time in BA. If you want a charming, clean and friendly place to stay in BA then look no further... More

Charming old renovated home. Lots of character. Small boutique style B&B type hotel. Spotlessly clean. Beds super comfortable. The entire staff is very helpful and sweet...and speak English. This is an incredible value too. 3 blocks walk in a very safe and quiet residential neighborhood to the subway. Taxis everywhere around too. My brother-in-law suggested this hotel to us...he has...

e stayed for 4 days. In a 1904 building, the rooms with high ceilings are charming, decorated with a modern eye. It's very quiet. The desk staff speaks excellent English. But the location in Amagra, a sleepy residential area, is not convenient to visit the city. We had spent a week in Palermo earlier in the month where we had... More

This is a very nice hotel in a stunning 100 year old home. You'd think the inside would be dated, but it's immaculate with every luxury imaginable. The bed was the most comfortable I've slept in throughout my 6 months is South America. Wifi worked great, staff was so friendly (perfect English) and the shower was hot with good pressure.... More

We stayed here for four nights and the staff was amazingly helpfull. They helped us with tickets for a tangoshow, the boat to Uruguay and even helped me with a birthday cake for my fiancée (serviced it at breakfast as a suprise). The hotel is very charming, beds and breakfast really good. Definitely would go back here if we go... More

A lovely 2 day stopover in Buenos Aires. Late booking the day before I arrived no problem. The hotel organised a taxi transfer from EZE to the hotel and rolled it into the bill. I stayed in the deluxe room which came with a king size bed, good storage space and small en-suite. The hotel gave me advice about what... More
