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

The staff was wonderful, and went above and beyond to assist me in any inquiry. An incredible rate, and first class stay. Stayed in the minimal suite, and it... More

I am a US citizen, but I endeavor to leave my country as much as possible for vacation. In summary, I see a lot of hotels. This was one of my favorites. For the rate I paid, it is actually #1 on my list of top hotels for the price/amenities. Sure, the Grand Hotel in Stockholm is awesome, but it's... More

Terrific boutique hotel in Palermo. My boyfriend and I just stayed here. We found it to be romantic and charming. We especially enjoyed the helpful staff and the roof top for wine each evening. We will be back!

My husband and I stayed at this hotel on our first visit to Buenos Aires. We really loved it. The staff was warm, friendly and very helpful. The building itself is lovely and charming, with a sweet courtyard, a lounge area on the 2nd floor and a bright, cheerful breakfast room / cafe. The complimentary breakfasts are huge and delicious...

My son and I were fortunate to enjoy a couple days in BA on our way to Rio for World Cup. We did a good deal of reading and found Vain Boutique Hotel in the Palermo neighborhood of BA. This is a small, quiet hotel that we think is a gem and terrific value. The staff were outstanding - friendly,... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel multiple times throughout our semester in Buenos Aires. We loved every room we stayed in and couldn't have been happier with the service. We especially enjoyed the delicious complementary breakfast. Wishing they had locations in the US! Highly recommend this hidden gem!!

Vain was definitely one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. The staff was excellent! They were always smiling and very helpful with anything we needed. They even provide a nice welcome folder with maps, guides and complimentary drink ticket at their bar. We also booked our airport taxi through them and it was a very easy process.... More
