As part of our last few days in Argentina, my husband and I wanted to stay in a hotel where we could “live like locals” in Buenos Aires - this hotel was perfect for that! Located in a little sub-neighbourhood of Palermo called Las Canitas, this small 5 room hotel makes you feel like you are staying in a chic apartment rather than an impersonal hotel. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome - the staff knew it was our honeymoon so our room had been decorated with rose petals, a beautiful flower arrangement and a complementary bottle of wine. We stayed in room 5 on the top floor where we had our own private terrace with jacuzzi and lovely plush bench for lounging. What makes this hotel great is the fact that everything is included: mini bar, as much bottled water as you want, breakfast, snacks, coffee, wine, phone calls to 35 countries and free laundry. You also get your own Apple computer in your room which was very handy. The beds are extra comfortable and the linens are scented with vanilla which makes for a very restful sleep! And the closet in Room 5 is fabulous!
Not to take anything away from this hotel I do have to say that it is in need of some maintenance and a few upgrades wouldn't hurt:
1/ It would be a great idea to tile the shower area in the bathroom completely so as to avoid some mould issues. The same can be said for the pull down shade in the shower - it needs to be bleached or changed on a more regular basis.
2/ I would also like to see them adjust the water temperature for the jacuzzi - the water that comes out is scolding hot. Not a huge problem but a bit inconvenient- we would fill up the tub before going out for dinner, let the water cool and either use it that night or in the morning.
3/ Last, the lock on the door of room 5 needs to be fixed - sometimes we had to swipe our key card several times before it would open
While the décor of the rooms is very nice and minimalist it would be a very nice touch if the hotel could add a piece of artwork from the artists they are displaying in the main area – not a must but would definitely add to the overall boutique feel of the hotel.
Overall we did like this hotel and especially the location – Las Canitas is only about 9 blocks or so but you literally never have to leave the area as there is a great shopping mall, many restaurants and bars and lots of other amenities. However you will want to venture out to Palermo Viejo and Soho as they are great areas as well and very cheap to get to by taxi (about $5)
We would stay at Tailor Made again.
