We stayed at Rooney's for 8 days in November 2014. Very personal service with friendly staff, most of whom spoke good English, and were handy for guidance and events booking. We met the eponymous Mr Rooney a jovial Northern Irishman. The hotel is a few paces from Callao St, and in the midst of cafés and restaurants of middle price... More

My girlfirend and I enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The owner was really friendly and provided details of a wonderful tango class for locals so we saw authentic tango dancing and mixed with local - a real treat! The hotel is beautifully decorated and you feel as if you are stepping back in time with the lovely traditional decor.... More

I recently stayed at Rooney's and had the same wonderful experience I had 5 years ago when I was here before. The rooms are cozy and luxurious which remind you of being in Paris with the tall windows and a balcony. The breakfast is quite good with fresh pastries and great coffee. The staff go out of your way to... More

This hotel embodies the essence of elegance and charm. Our first impression was the iron cage elevator – it was a first for us and a very smooth ride. Situated on the third floor (which is quite high considering the ceilings are very tall) of a residential building on the corner of bustling streets, Sarmiento and Callao, and with a... More

We truly enjoyed our stay at Rooney's Hotel in the old district of Buenos Aires. Hotel was accessible to most everything downtown including good restaurants, shopping and metro connections. Room was more than adequate and daily breakfasts always featured fresh baked goods and fresh fruit. Host was extremely helpful with great advice, arranging local tours, Tango lessons and tips on...

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
