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...

Wow what an amazing place! Fantastic value for money and all the staff we met were friendly and helpful especially the lady that worked on reception in the mornings. 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

Impeccably designed and restored classic building, Great service, a few blocks from Palermo Viejo and Soho. We stayed on in a room with a shared bathroom and loved it. They are on the top floor and open out to an amazing rooftop terrace with great views of the city. We couldn't believe the quality we got for the low price

We were very pleased with this hotel. The location was just a few blocks away from the Subte. The neighborhood had numerous shops and restaurants. he hotel staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Lovely common areas including a roof deck. Our room was fine. Nothing fancy but better than we had expected for the price (around $60 USD/night including tax).
