My fiancee and I spent six nights here at the end of July. What a great way to start our trip to Argentina! From leaving the airport with pre-arranged pick up everything ran like clockwork. It was clear that Rooney's had a vision when they started their business. It's beautifully furnished, with high ceilings, stunning antique furniture and a very... More

Stayed for several days during Argentina's summer. Logistics were handled well, we were assisted to locate a bank without long lines to change money and a very down-home unchic but charming tango parlor which we greatly enjoyed. Near some superb restaurants. Clean, quiet, and comfortable, pleasant ample and diversified breakfast in a classic little breakfast room. For us that's all... More

Rooney's Boutique Hotel feels less like a hotel and more like staying at a friend's apartment. Or more accurately, visiting your grandma, because there's a lovely antiquated feel to it. Hardwood floors, high ceilings, and the kind of solid porcelain bathroom fixtures you rarely see anymore. I stayed for six nights and loved it. The location is right in the... More

This hotel is truly lovely. The ceilings are amazingly high and the hotel is decorated with antique furniture. It's located on the third floor in and old apartment, you can just imagine a glamourous, rich, old argentinian lady living there. Also the staff is wonderful and almost everyone speak English very well. There's a great breakfast with youghurt, toast, juice,... More

Rooney's was very much in reality what it said it was online -- charming, stylish, full of character. The furniture and photographs on the walls were reminiscent of an era of elegance in the city that used to be called the Paris of South America. It was also spotlessly clean, with gleaming wooden floors. The staff were very friendly and... More

My husband and i had a wonderful 4 night stay at this charming hotel! It's located on the 3rd floor of a residential building. The old style elevator was fun, and having to buzz in to enter the building wasn't an issue for us. Our room was cozy and comfortable, and the continental breakfast was great. Andrea at the front...

If you want a taste of a grand past in an amazing city, this is a peek into it. Rooney's is a family run hotel in an old and original city apartment building. It's small and elegant (7 rooms) very friendly and a welcome antithesis of large hotel chains.

What a great way to start a holiday in Argentina. It's centrally located, the staff were really helpful and friendly, just loved the character of the place, comfortable rooms and the bonus was a free tango lesson.

Stayed here with my wife and sons (15 & 13) for 3 days on the front end of a 10 day trip to Argentina. Our airport pick-up (arranged through the hotel) went off without a hitch, although the traffic in the city lived up to its reputation on a Friday morning. Since the hotel was not crowded (late in the... More
