“Lovely B&B in great area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

Bonito B&B was extremely welcoming and helpful. The staff had great English and were always willing to give advice and book things for you. The rooms were clean and quirky, although slightly dated now, just needs a touch up to get back to being a brilliant B&B in a fantastic location. The breakfasts were great, more than enough to get you through a full day of site-seeing. The B&B is arranged over several floors, and has a few spiral staircases to negotiate. The roof top terraces were lovely and I'm sure would be amazing in the summer. As in the previous comment, the bathroom in the Wild Dreams room is set up a little strangely if you want to use it after you have showered! I would highly recommend - it was great value, and in a lovely location. Most comfy sofa ever in the reception area.

It is one of the most quirky, charming places I have ever seen, I think! There are seven rooms, all have both a number and a name – and the names are of the kids in Sound of Music! Marta, Kurt, Liesl and so on. Too cute! The B&B is located in an old building in San Telmo, and is over several floors. I had to climb something like three spiral staircases to get to my room, and then there was another spiral staircase to get to a rooftop terrace. The whole places is filled with little terraces and outdoor spaces. So cute! The breakfast was wonderful and the staff very, very nice. Recommended! Good value for my money as well. The only issue I think would be all the stairs. If you have a lot of luggage it would be difficult with the spiral staircases. I stayed in the Wild Dreams room, which was very nice, but the bathroom was a little tricky. First there is a sink, then a shower, and then the toilet. The shower is separated by a curtain only, which means that after your shower, it is all soaking wet and you will get wet if you go to the toilet.

This is a nice B&B. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The location cannot be beat for the market which was the highlight of our trip. We spent most of the day exploring and watching all the local street performers. We did the whole market from San Telmo all the way to the Palace. The front room is need of repair from what appears to be some water damage. The breakfast was great and the wifi was a bonus. We arrived very early morning from Miami and thought they could at least offer us something to eat or something to drink. We stayed at their sister property on our return trip and I liked it better.

Amazing find. Great value for your pesos. Very helpful staff, great rooms on the roof and nice outside seating area. There are a large number of stairs to the rooms at the top, but the staff are only to willing to take your bags up and down. Good breakfasts to start long days exploring San Telmo. Don't miss the tunnels on Defensa.

Room Tip: Don't be put off by the outside or the area if you arrive late at night.

We stayed here three times in November of 2012, in two different rooms. The entire hotel was clean, comfortable, and pleasant, even as it heated up for summer. The breakfast is generous and tasty, and being available until noon made it very convenient. Internet service was quick and reliable, and the staff went the extra mile to make our trip comfortable, even going so far as to loan us a subte card for transit while we were in Buenos Aires. I strongly recommend this hotel.

Friendly staff and ready to help, they let us in before the usual check-in time and made us feel at home; the room was just like in the picture, we stayed in the "Liesl" room on the last floor and had two terraces for us! The breakfast was one of the best we had during our stay in Argentina! Definitely great value for money in San Telmo! P.S. If getting there by taxi tell the driver to look for the small "The Cocker" sign on the building, there's no other name on the door.
Not that easy to climb the stairs with big bags... but doable! ;-)
