We had an excellent stay at Rooneys. The staff was incredibly friendly, welcoming and will go out of their way to help you. The room in spacious, clean and comfortable. Although the location can get a bit noisy, it is very convenient and we were able to walk most places or take the subway. We had a room facing 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

We chose this hotel having read some of the Tripadvisor reviews and we weren't disappointed. The location is very good, you can walk to lots of the sights and the subway is very handy for those that you can't. The staff, particularly Aurelia, are extremely helpful. Our room was just as expected, comfortably furnished, nice old world bathroom and not... More

This is a boutique hotel that has the look of what I imagine Buenos Aires was in the 29's. Our only problem was the bath / shower was an old ball and claw that is very deep. My wife could not step over the high side and was unable to use it. The transfer from the airport had a hard... More
