“Best stay ever”

The Breakfast Service Is Amazing! The Staff Are Warm, Friendly And Will Do Anything To Make Your Stay Great. The Staff Go Out Of Their Way To Ensure Guests Have What They Need. I Have Stayed Here Twice In The Past Two Weeks--And It's Been Great Both Times

I was greeted by a very nice guy, helpful and friendly. Nahuel -the nice guy- has to put up with lack of staff, running around greeting people, taking their luggage, taking care of breakfast, answering the phone, opening and closing the door -that remains locked- greeting some more people... try to play concierge....
It just baffles me how they can call this place a four star (???) My room, toward the back of the old house, was humid, there was mildew all over the ceiling. Small, and simple, a 22" flat screen TV is balanced over a DVD player with the help of some packing tape (where am I?? Is this REALLY Buenos Aires) All this sits on top of what seems to be the closet. Some ugly looking wooden structure.
The toilet door does not open or close properly, the shower, which opens directly to my room separated by a curtain that they must have bought at the dollar store does not have hot water yet . They are telling me to wait. I am keeping my expectations low....
Internet is slow, at times is just does not work in the room.
The bed has a duvet, but the sheets are worn out and poor quality. The pillows are cheap, . They do no have the bedding right period.
I am having breakfast (adequate) and a couple girls walk in, and start cleaning around t. Maybe they will clean the rooms as well. Not like I care. I am checking out anyways. This said, the location of this hostal is good for those who want to stay around Soho and walk around. I guess you pay for location , and in a city where cabs are cheap is plain not worth it. Next time I am going back to Hollywood suites, or even The Raco, a bit out of the way offers much better rooms for about the same money.

SUMARIZING: Tourist trap. Location is their bait. A mix of horrible rooms and fair service (because of this ONE guy) OK breakfast, poor value. Throw in an extra 20 dollars and RUN somewhere else.

We stayed almost a week in Buenos Aires and this lovely boutique hotel contributed to a great trip. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly, the hotel is very charming and is located in a great neighborhood, in a unbeatable location, near all the shopping, restaurants and bars.
The room was small, which was expected, but comfortable, however there were a few negatives: some mold that was forming in one of the walls, the bathtub which was actually in the room itself and not in a separate area, and old and thin towels that definitely needed to be changed! Overall, it was a great place to stay and I would definitely recommend it.

We loved this place! It was what a boutique hotel should be and the staff were so lovely! I had read about the bad reviews for the rooms but I stayed in the Chic Room which it was , with a big jacuzzi bath in the corner of the room . The bed was big and comfortable, new flat screen tv and dvd. Our room was at the back so it was quiet. Breakfast was a buffet with a full selection of everything and it was still on offer at 12.30 lunchtime! I was only here for one night but would have stayed longer. I had a good price from Booking.com 90USD plus taxes, I have stayed at another place around the corner where they quoted more and offered much much less. I had absolutely no sign of the bad experiences that you read about here!

Me and my husband decided to take a few days in Buenos Aires, we looked the website of a lot of different hotels in Palermo ( if you like shopping this is your neighborhood) and choosed Blue Soho Hotel.
The hotel has 2 years opened and is very good located in the Soho area of Palermo, the staff is very friendly and helpful, they recommend us the best places to eat and shopping.
The décor is nice and our room was very comfortable with a big bed and soft sheets.
We can’t use the terrace because they are working on it.
We really recommend it and definitely come back the next year.

This hotel is well-situated in an area close to good shopping and restaurants.. The staff is attentive and friendly. There are enough English-speaking people at the desk that you won't feel unable to communicate. The rooms are a comfortable and updated.
The sheets are of high-quality and the bedding is adequate for the season. The sheets are changed daily. The Breakfast is very good, And at the bar you can find a lot of alcohol options (very good quality)
We will be loyal returnees.”
