The staff was very friendly, the room was clean, good bed, pillows and shower.the location is great, very close to the subway and lots of bus stops. Breakfast was decent. Definitely excellent for its price.

We stayed here for three nights. The hotel is quite distinctly decorated - it's pretty if quite old fashioned. The rooms were a good size. The bed wasn't the most comfortable we'd had, but no real complaints - it was fine. The bath was an attractive roll-top but sadly not so practical - it was certainly too small to actually... More

Great location, walking distance to the main theatre district and a short cab ride from San Telmo. Decent breakfast too. The real star attraction however are the rooms themselves, vintage style from another era. Staff were very knowledgeable and helped us pick out local attractions to visit. We'll be back!

We stayed at Rooney's Boutique Hotel for 3 nights at the beginning of a longer trip to Antarctica. We found this hotel on TripAdvisor and chose it because of the positive reviews and great location. We booked a "stay for 3, pay for 2" special deal directly via their website, which was easy to use, and got breakfast and ONE... More

I couldn't have picked a better place to start my Argentine adventure! As the other reviewers mentioned, the elevator, the décor, the renovations, the vintage furniture, the claw foot tub...were so charming. Open up the balcony door to feel the breeze and hear the sounds of the street. I not only felt like I was in Evita-era BA, I felt... More

Staying at the Rooney's Boutique Hotel in Buenos Aires is like experiencing the Tango. When arriving at this lovely hotel by elevator (from the early 40') you step in a house what has become a romantic hotel without feeling entering a hotel. It is like entering a 'movie scene' The staff is super friendly and generous. Tango lessons are given... More

We've stayed here twice in two different rooms. The rooms are beautiful with unique furniture and incredible charm. Beds are comfortable, breakfast is delicious and staff are helpful. The hotel is in a nice area and within walking distance of some great places in Recoleta (25 min walk to Recoleta Cemetery). Staff will help you book taxis to the airport... More

This was a great little place in the heart of the city, walking distance to many attractions and easy transportation. The staff was so helpful and accommodating. And we loved the beautiful old French inspired architecture and the urban views from the front windows. We were comfortable and well taken care of. I think it is a gem for the... More

From the second we arrived we just knew this was a very special place! From the moment we entered into their exquisite old fashioned elevator we had huge smiles on our faces. We arrived in the early morning hours and the warm greeting we got made us feel right at home. Our room was so much more than we expected... More

We spent four nights at Rooney's before boarding a cruise ship. We prefer boutique hotels as they give some of the character of the city .. .. .. anyone can stay in a mega-chain that is just like home. The staff members were fantastic!! Always helpful in adjusting a planned day so that we could see something extra. Once off... More

Staying in San Nicolas

Neighborhood Profile
San Nicolas
Immersed in the sound of honking horns and the footsteps of busy office workers, the Microcentro area of San Nicolás is where visitors will encounter the true hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, walking down streets lined with office buildings and banks. The financial district is well-known for its vibrant atmosphere and unstoppable rhythm during office hours. After dark, the hubbub and migrates to Corrientes Ave., where theater lovers might start their evening at a play and end it in one of the many traditional pizzerias nearby. During the day, Corrientes is known for its many bookshops and classic cafés, which are located just minutes away from some famous landmarks, like the Obelisco, Avenida 9 de Julio, and the Teatro Colon.
