This was my first time staying in the Palermo area and this hotel was a wonderful discovery. Great location (a couple of blocks from the Plaza Italia Subte station), one of the best (helpful, friendly) hotel staff I have met and the icing on the cake: the delicious succulent breakfasts. The temperature of both the hotel common areas and the... More

Great staff, kind and helpful! Small but very comfortable rooms. The highlight was the breakfast, Carina was great and served us a wonderful meal, well prepared and well presented. We looked forward to it every morning! She remembered exactly how we liked things and the coffee was superb! I highly recommend Vain Boutique Hotel!

Staying in Palermo

Neighborhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighborhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favorite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
