Hotel Costa Rica is a quite pleasant place to spend some days, well located and with friendly service (although not always!). It is an old historic house, very well decorated and with a cosy and romantic loft. However, the rooms are not well equiped. Basic things are missing (telephone, wifi in the rooms) while in the winter it can be... More

For US$65 a night we felt like we were staying in a very chic hotel with everything we needed. Great service, modern rooms, beautiful and cool courtyards, solid location and hot showers. What more could you want? Breakfast isn't included but honestly who cares? There are a million places to stop for a cafe and croissant if you want. Love... More

The staff was as helpful as can be. I was rather ignorant about Buenos Aires coming in, and they were very patient with my many questions and outlined all the good places of interests in town and in the neighborhood of Palermo, as well as giving tips on how to get to these places. One night they booked me a... More

This place is an absolute gem. After a month of backpacking my boyfriend and I decided to treat ourselves to a hotel stay. Firstly the value for money of this hotel is exceptional -fractionally more than a private room in a hostel. It is in the heart of palermo only a few streets from the very centre and the metro...

Location is excellent, minutes walk from restaurants and bars and cafés and the area felt safe. The building is also very secure with someone on reception 24 hours a day. The... More
