I have been to Bs As many times, stayed at many different Palermo hotels, and this was my second time at The Glu. I think I can safely say they are probably the best in the area.
Location-wise it's in a perfect spot, steps away from good bars (Congo, and Kika), good restaurants (Social Paraiso, La Cabrera, Cluny) and shopping. Service is truly excellent, and as previously mentioned, the very early check-ins never fail to impress me.
The rooms are huge, tastefully decorated, with wooden floors, underfloor heating, balcony and bar area. Bed is comfortable, area is quiet (although on one night we had noise from the bar next door - which seemed to be dealt with after complaining with reception). TV channel selection is good, and wi-fi was always very fast (and free). Staff are polite, helpful, but never intrusive. Breakfast is simple but delicious and fuss-free. Minibar prices are very reasonable. Never got to try the jacuzzi or sauna, but the pictures look good!
All in all, this hotel has everything you need and more. They are slightly more expensive than others in the area, but definitely worth it. If this is your first trip to Buenos Aires, I wouldn't recommend you to stay anywhere else.
