The best thing about the Livian is definitely the staff - Fernando, Sergio and Mathias could not be more helpful and friendly and went out of their way to answer our questions and help us make arrangements in BA. The location isn't perfect as it's not slap bang in the middle of Palermo but it's really only a 10 minute... More

How frequently do you find a place to stay in a city of 17 million where the walled garden is larger than the hotel floor space - well this is one place and it makes it especially relaxing. This place is 100M from a main street, 10 mins walk from the underground (although BA has more than enough cabs), with... More

We stayed 3 days at Livian and enjoyed it. The atmosphere was very family-like and the place has a lot of personality. It was the ending of a long holiday with a lot of different hotels, and this place was the perfect place to "close it". The staff was helpful and made us all feel very welcome

In the website, they inform that hotel is near (3 km) the Obelisc (located in dowtown). This is not true. The hotel is 15 km +- from the dowtown. The pictures I have seen on internet shows a new hotel, but the place is old, and have a bad smell. I couldn't feel safe there because my window was totally... More

The website informs that Livian Guest House is a house from the earlies 30s and we constantly improve our place. The distance from different points of the city is established by Googlemaps by default, from origin to destination. In this particular reservation, we offered a... More

I stayed at the Livian Guesthouse for eight nights in late April/early May 2010. I found the staff & owner incredibly helpful and loved the sort-of private house feel of the place. As it is a small hotel it means that the staff are able to give a lot of attention to your queries and requests. The location is great... More

Stayed here for three nights after setting down in Buenos Aires. Staff were very friendly and assisted us in our stay in the city. Our room was clean and quiet, backing on to a nice garden, and room was cleaned daily. Generous breakfast included, and the place is well located in Palermo fairly near a subte station. Well recommened, if... More

Great garden a homely atmosphere and nearby to all thats happening in the Palermo district of Buenos Aires. The staff are also very knowledgeable and very friendly. Want a recommendation - no problem, want to dine in a great restaurant but no reservation - no problem to them.

We had reserved the Livian suite for a week but when we arrived it was moldy smelling, the upholstered furniture worn and didn't have the TV that was mentioned on the web site. We were able to move to the Kiss room which was much better, excellant bed and upholstered chairs in better shape.. Bath had charming arch top window... More
