We had a very poor experience in this rather strange place. There is no sign outside to indicate what it is, our taxi driver was hesitant to let us out. There was frequently nobody at all on desk/reception. We had a hard time with the owner who would only take euros and not a mix of euros and pesos. No... More

Dear guest, we appreciate your willingness to point out some details that bothered you during your stay at the Posada, this allows us to be aware of areas for improvement, we believe, however, that there has been a series of misunderstanding in communication, particularly in relation with the currency of payment. As indicated in the e-mail sent to our guests,... More

This hotel did not live up to its website or description at all. Impossible to know it is a hotel from the outside when you arrive. Only one member of staff there when I arrived, Colombian guy with almost no English (desciption says multi lingual staff). No 24 hour desk at all. Room dark (very small window 8 feet off... More

If you like to stay in a genuin Hosteria, this is the right place! The hostes Eli has been very nice and helpful to me and my wife during our two visits to BA. In the centre of San Telmo and close to genuin BA restaurants and Tango! Gert & Anne from Sweden

The photos and reviews of Posada de la Luna were good on this website, so my husband and I made reservations. Thankfully, we arrived via taxi at night, because otherwise we wouldn't have found the front door. There's no sign, just the number (remember the number because you might get lost again during the day, as we did and another... More

No windows in the rooms (except one), hardly any aircondition (BA is humid), only toast and jam for breakfast, expencive laundry - twice the price - and be aware - the woman owing the posada tries to trick you on the paying. She said she would lower the price if I payed in dollars. She also asked for all the... More

This is a beautiful place to stay when visiting Buenos Aires . The old house has been beautifully restored having maintained lots of original features, including a magnificant marble almost spiral staircase that greets you on entry It also has a very calming tranquil effect as open air hallway is lined with lovely green plants that lead to a garden...

I was looking around for places in Buenos Aires, knowing nothing at all about the city as I headed there after some time in Cordoba. Consequently, I highly recommend Cordoba over Bs. As. on a first trip, or maybe any trip. The people are friendlier, the scenery is preferable, and I liked the environment afforded by being a college town... More

I have booked a "deluxe" room at this hotel, with photos of the circular room. Everything from the photos, description, tittle and price belonged to the circular room. I'm happy I sent them an email to be sure everything was ok because only then they sent me an email back saying I was being downgraded to a "standard" room and... More

The posada is a wonderful old house located in San Telmo, the old colonial barrio, near shops, restaurants, tango clubs, street fairs, and all the "must-see" sights. As with any old house it has its quirks but we thought it was delightful. Eli and Luis were very helpful with reservations and suggestions. In spite of the busy streets our room... More

Dear Posada de la Luna. We’ve had a wonderful stay here at your little San Telmo oasis. We’ve enjoyed everything from the morning coffee to finally asleep to the sound of tango music from the theater next door.

Staying in Montserrat

Neighborhood Profile
As part of the historic quarter of Buenos Aires, Montserrat is defined by the historical events that took place there and the landmarks that have stood the test of time. The Plaza de Mayo is at the center of this connection to history: countless public demonstrations have passed through this square, going back to the May Revolution of 1810. Walking the streets of Montserrat allows us to imagine what Buenos Aires may have looked like in the past: the Cabildo takes us back to the late 16th century, while the Palacio Barolo and the traditional cafés carry us to the early 20th. Nowadays, the neighborhood is inundated every day by office workers, buses, and taxis; still, the cobblestones, narrow sidewalks, and subway stations from the 1910s remind us that we are surrounded by history everywhere we look.
