Excellent position, in Palermo, quite near to metro. The atmosphere was very nice, and personnel very helpful. The structure is unconventional, with several touches of architectural design of good quality. It is not a 5 stars because our room was a bit too small and at ground level with not enough light, but, well... you had only to sleep in... More

We traveled on a budget so stayed in multiple hotels in the US$60-80/night range. On our last night we decided to splurge slightly and booked Vain Boutique at about US$100/night. It was certainly an upgrade versus what we had experienced before. A nice feature was that they have a breakfast menu and you can order as many times as you... More

Our flight was cancelled and we needed a place to stay for one night. Too bad we didn't spend our whole stay in buenos aires here. The place is top notch. Very clean and bright with lots of great "finishing touches" like a bottle of wine in the room. A hot tub and a beautiful sun room. The staff was... More

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.

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.
