I feel so lucky to have found Gurda Tango on Trip Advisor last year, before our trip to BA in November 2011. Originally our plan was to stay in San Telmo a couple nights, head off to Iguazu, stay in a different neighborhood in BA when we returned, head off to Patagonia, and then stay in another neighborhood.

This is a lovely hotel that's near to many things. There were police patrols in the neighborhood so it felt safe enough. Loved the decor in the room. Wi-fi is reliable. We asked if there was a computer for public use as we needed to do some things that could not be done on our iPhones, and Mariano (not sure... More

Our room, Malbec, was large, cool and quiet. The staff were really helpful and the breakfast great, the room overlooked the local park . Within walking distance of the centre and La Boca.

The room was small but clean and nicely decorated. The staff were wonderful. They helped to arrange tours and gave great information and directions. They let us stay late as we had an evening flight out. The location was good as it provides easy access to the San Telmo shopping markets on the weekends. In short it's a very good... More

We spent 4 nights at Gurda Tango in February 2012 - we had a lovely stay. They upgraded us to their junior suite - one of 7 rooms in this old San Telmo mansion. The room was large by Buenos Aires standards - with a relatively large closet and bathroom. A little sparsely decorated, but very clean and well air... More

Karina Mecca (general manager) and her colleagues Norma, Caroline & Rosia showed my wife & me terrific hospitality and warmth during our stay. They single-handedly turned what started out as a potentially disastrous stay in Buenos Aires into a simply wonderful few days. We had reserved at another B&B, but unbeknownst to us a few days before our arrival water... More

The staff at this small hotel is fantastic. We had a late night flight departing from B.A. on the day we checked out. They let us keep our luggage in the room that day (and take showers) without charging us anything. If you want to stay in an inner city hotel and not pay a fortune, this is a good... More

Must admit we were not sure about our booking here as my sister had recently visited BA and stayed at this hotel and was not fussed with her experience - so I was a little unsure of what our own experience might be......but we were not disappointed in the least and was very glad we did not change our booking...

We booked 2 nights and ended up staying for 6, such was the genuine comfort of this hotel. The location is ideal. A lazy Sunday morning for those who want to fall out of bed for the fantastic San Telmo antique market. A very direct route into downtown and perfectly positioned for local bars and restaurants. We stayed in 2... More
