I stayed two nights at the GLU and found it very nice. I didnt give it 5 stars because I think that should be reserved for the top luxury hotels and GLU doesnt make any pretense to be a high end luxury hotel. Its a clean, nice, fun, small comfortable trendy boutique hotel - in a safe laid back neighborhood.
I really appreciated the shower facility on the first floor that I could use before leaving to catch my flight late in the early evening/late afternoon and after I had already checked out of my room. The shower is something in and of itself to experience, its like taking a shower in Iguazu falls.
The reviewer who thought the neighborhood around the hotel was questionable I think, while entitled to his opinion, is not quite right. In reality Palermo is no less safe than the Retiro or the Recoleta. The reviewer might be shocked if he or she did a Google search of Villa 31, and found out just how close one of the most notorious slums in Argentina is to the Recoleta.
In any event, not sure what a bobo crowd is but I find all the energy of lots of young creative people in the Palermo with their small businesses with their entrepreneurial spirit, inspiring.
