We were about ready to leave Buenos Aires when we came across this gem of a hotel. After checking in, we decided to extend our stay in the city. The location is excellent and the staff could not have been more friendly and hospitable. You will feel like you are staying with friends instead of a hotel. We hope to... More

This gay owned and operated hotel is a true gem. It is beautiful old building. The staff is really helpful and friendly, the location is great. Clubs and bars are a short taxi/metro ride away. There are tango lessons on the roof top. Definitely would go back there!

It is always good to climb the stairs to find the warm and welcoming staff amist the energy of San Telmo. A very special place that upon returning gives a 'coming home' experience. Good access to anywhere and the Sunday Market is at the doorstep. Typically find other guests to be friendly and sincere. A treat to be in this... More

Lugar Gay is one of the best gay guesthouses world-wide. Situated very central in San Telmo. Everyting in Buenos Aires is easily reachable from there. Their nice idea is a happy hour in the early evening. It is not important to get their free drinks and snacks - the most important thing is that you can get in touch with... More

Been there 3 times with my husband over the last 7 years. It is always very friendly, feels like Nito, Xavier and Santo are like best friends. Place is spotless and super well located. And as always we meet people. Don't miss Nito's happy hour. Will go back again soon. Pierre and Nick xxx

A friend and I stayed here and really enjoyed it. The staff are friendly and helpful - the rooms are comfortable and clean - and the location is fantastic for the weekend San Telmo fairs. Yes, there are a lot of stairs and the breakfast isn't gourmet, but for the price you pay to stay at this B&B, it is... More
