Great place to stay, especially for a couple. We stayed 4 nights and it really began to feel like home. Spacious and comfortable room (we stayed in the main room) huge bathroom. Free internet and with only 5 rooms there was very little waiting around. Nice court yard to unwind with some vino. Fairly good spot, we walked to many places but taxis go past constantly.

We stayed at Casa Vaiven for 2 + 1 nights in January and February 2008. We tried to book it for even more nights, but unfortunately it was already fully booked.

Casa Vaiven is a small hotel/bed and breakfast situated in San Telmo and on walking distance from many different areas in Buenos Aires. When our taxi first pulled up outside the hotel, we barely could not see it (a blue door painted with flowers in a residential area), but once inside we got a pleasant surprise. We learned that it is an old cookie factory and it is truly an amazing place with some smaller rooms that share a bathroom and a few flats. No room is like the other.

Breakfast is eaten at a large wooden table with the other guests. We met some nice people with whom we shared travelling tips. There is also a kitchen and a living room with a computer (and internet).

The staff is very friendly and helpful and makes you feel like home.

The prices are reasonable and since you can choose between the smaller rooms and the flats, you can get something that suits your economy.

We would recommend this hotel to all our friends and to all of you who read this. Go to BA and stay at Casa Vaiven!

A friend told me about Casa Vaiven and I thought it was great. You walk into a lovely big space with lots of light and huge plants, a big table and an area with a sofa and TV. The bedrooms are a really good size and all have their own styles. Its a very comfortable and inviting place to stay. The staff are friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay there again and recommend it to anyone going to Buenos Aires.

Very helpful staff, clean interesting rooms, above average breakfast for Argentina and a great location in San Telmo. The staff genuinely wants to share their city with and will help you do it the way no hotel ever would.

Since opening the place 4 years ago, we have come to stay every year for minimum 2 weeks in Casa Vaiven and we always enjoyed our stay in the appartment. There is a familiar atmosphere with very kind people.
All services mentioned in Casa Vaiven's homepage have been properly realized and all photos are identical. Since 2 years an air conditioning system was installed in the appartment - for those who need closed windows because of the noise of a great city like Buenos AIres.
We have found a clean place on high level. Very good and multi-lingual support for tourists. Casa Vaiven is seated in San Telmo which in fact, is an ideal base for sightseeing tours within Buenos Aires.

We spent 5 nights at Casa Vaiven and really enjoyed our stay. The rooms are clean, quiet and comfortable. And the staff were very helpful, with great local knowledge. Daniel, Martin and Melissa all went out of their way to make our visit to Buenos Aires fun, interesting and delicious (Daniel gave us some great restaurant tips). San Telmo is a great part of town to stay in.

  • Liked — The location and the friendly staff
  • Disliked — It's an open space, so noise can echo in the building
