Palermo is a great neighborhood--tranquil ,full of places to eat and shops with curious and aesthetic merchandise. The Vain is modern, pretty clean and friendly. Staff is very helpful and attentive. Breakfasts plentiful, an excellent start to a day of exploration. Recommend it highly.

We stayed for four nights last month, on our first visit to Buenos Aires, and would highly recommend this hotel. The highlights of the place are the roof lounge area and terrace (with hot tub) and the very friendly staff who were more than happy to help with any request we had. The breakfast was also great, and we were... More

We stayed at the Vain Boutique Hotel for three nights. The staff was absolutely superb! They were very helpful with recommendations, directions, and money exchange. The hotel itself is in a great location in Palermo, only 2-3 blocks from the D line metro that you can take to the city center. There are plenty of restaurants and bars within walking... More

Maybe because I only stayed one night, but they put me right next to the lobby, and it was loud. My room only had one window and it was a sky light to the lobby/atrium area. There was no connection to the outside world. Even worse, my shower leaked all over the bathroom floor due to improper drainage. There was... More

The hotel itself is very nice with a relaxed vibe, the breakfast was excellent in comparison to the rest of BA. Rooms were nice, although a bit small and the bathroom needed some updating. The staff are really superb at this hotel and made our stay as perfect as possible!

We can't say enough great things about Vain Boutique Hotel. The staff is remarkably friendly and helpful. When we first arrived, Pablo made us feel right at home and answered all our questions about the neighborhood, the hotel's services, and showed us everything we needed to know on a map -- including where it was safe to walk at night...

We almost felt like we were the only guests there. Both because of how quite it was, but also because... More
