Atempo hotel is a modern boutique hotel in Palermo Hollywood.
We were in one of the basic rooms, which was very spacious, comfortable and modern. The street on which the hotel is situated is quite, there a lots of cafes and restaurants in the area. The train station is about a 15-minute walk and from there it takes about 11 stops to the city, the whole trip about 35 minutes. You can also catch a cab, which will cost about $10 US/AUD and take about 15 minutes when there is no traffic. Palermo Hollywood is a residential, upscale and trendy area with lots of cool little boutique shops, cafes and restaurants, comparable to Greenwhich in New York or Surry Hills in Sydney.
The rooms are comfortably furnished, if a little sparse for people who stay longer. Even though there is a cooking stove, there are no utensils for cooking in the room and on request the hotel didn't have any.
There are no washing machines in the hotel but down the road is a laundry service, where they do same-day service and which is inexpensive.
The service is great, the hotel has got young, English speaking staff who are very friendly and helpful. The room is cleaned every day, the hotel itself and the rooms being extremely clean.
We loved almost everything about this hotel - because we stayed there for two weeks it almost felt like an apartment, a home from home.
The only downside of this hotel for us was the breakfast. We came from Australia and expected a continental breakfast. The breakfast that the hotel serves is great for Argentines because - as is custom - it consists of almost exclusively sweet produce. There is a large variety of sweet cereals, breads, cookies etc. but only one type of cheese and ham, no tomatoes, eggs, greens etc. However, as the room has a microwave we were able to prepare breakfast in our room.
All in all it is great value for visitors who want to stay in a residential - if upscale - neighbourhood rather than the touristy centre and are happy to travel a bit to get to the city. We would definitely come back!
