If you need a large hotel with 400 rooms, this is not the place for you. If you want the real Buenos Aires, with all the charm of the old city, this is the place. Wonderful staff that will go out of there way to help with whatever you need. The AC could be a problem, but don't let that... More

I stayed one night in a small downstairs room suitable for a single traveller or couple and was not disappointed. Even though it didn't have a window, it felt white and spacious as well as cosy and had everything you need for a short stay. The only thing I missed at all accommodation in Argentina was a jug you could... More

I am really happy with this hotel - it's in a charming neighborhood, close to quaint shops/markets/cafes/restaurant/bars and public transit. The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. A few reviewers have noted that although there is a thermostat in the room, it must be turned on by the front desk. Having a room with NO windows (1st floor, off... More

Went here with a group; rooms were nice and rather spacious, albeit the heating is not really up to par. Nice breakfast and very accommodating staff; my glass-covered shower was always as cold as the outside air in the morning, but the water was strong and hot. We could pay in Pesos (i.e. take advantage of the dolar blue) and... More

We stayed in the Vain Boutique for one night during our honeymoon. The location was excellent. Right in the heart of Palermo near lots of nice restaurants and bars. The service in the hotel was outstanding. We were made to feel so welcome and the staff went over and above to ensure we enjoyed our stay. The breakfast was also... More

This hotel is very nicely located in Palermo. The staff is terrific always doing whatever they can to make you comfortable. The hotel has some wear and tear in the rooms, but still very comfortable. I stayed in a room with a glass skylight shower--it felt like you were bathing in front of all of Palermo. If you are an... More

Stayed there in early September so it was fairly empty but staff was incredibly helpful and warm. They provided great recommendations of places to go and made travel much easier. Staff also gave us a glass of wine while we waited for a taxi to the airport which they called for us. Highly recommend this place especially if traveling with... More

VAIN is a cool little hotel in a good neighbourhood. I found all the staff to be very friendly and helpful and really enjoyed the small feel of the funky little hotel. Upon arrival, I could not connect to the internet in the courtyard room. The manager was quick to come up and check and had a gentleman from maintenance... More
