It depends what you want and expect. I was on the road as a single explorer looking for something different. I was looking for a place to chill for a long time in Buenos Aires and I ended up over three weeks at Livian's Gusthouse (about 70% of my time in BA). Livian and company are great hosts. I have...

I spent three days in Livian Guest House. The garden is very nice. The breakfast is very basic and need an up grade. Some walls to other rooms are very small so you can imagine everything the couple next door is practicing. But the biggest problem is that the neighbours are constructing a new high building, so early in the... More

It all depends on what you want. This turn of the century, former family home is run by the owner's daughter and her husband with a love and attention which makes it a home away from home for the guests. Every hotel /bed and breakfasts have their issues. I could write a book about the arrogance and bad service I... More

A pleasant old house with marble floors and a great garden. The owners are friendly, the guesthouse seems to have a few rooms with separate baths and more without. Two lovely cats. Pluses: The garden Responsive service - if you ask WiFi - but signal strength varies significantly throughout - meaning some areas are virtually without signal Negatives: A bit... More

We booked our stay in the Livian guest house due to its location and because we had thought from reviews the stay would be relaxing. The common areas (breakfast room, lounge and garden) were very pleasant and the receptionist was very helpful over what to do and with our onwards travel. The room we stayed in was basic and the...

I have just returned from a trip to Buenos Aires and was extremely lucky to find the Livian. The owners are so welcoming that you feel very much at home in their home. The decor is stylish, and it is clear that a lot of love and thought has gone into creating this special place. I loved the garden which... More

We have just returned from four days at Livian Guesthouse in Buenos Aires and adore the place, the location and its owner! (who runs the little hotel out of the house where she grew up). The ambiance is welcoming and the crowd is at most beautiful. We were traveling with our two very young kids (6months and 2 y.o.) and... More
