“An excellent choice of boutique hotel in Palermo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2012

A boutique hotel in an excellent location near Subte (Metro), in Palermo, which is an area which has excellent reasonably priced restaurants and cafes on every street. The rooms and bathrooms are clean and very attractive, with wifi. Breakfast is included in the price and consists of a choice of anything from their menu. Friendly and helpful staff, comfortable upstairs lounge and street level breakfast area. I was surprised at how great a choice this was and think the value is excellent.

Lovely hotel situated in Palermo Soho (on my opinion the best district of Buenes Aires - in the near surrounding a lot of places to be like the Botanic Garden, the Zoo, a lot of Parks, Plaza Serrano - good for having a party - is per feet about 10 min. away). The hotel is a fresh adopted pitoresque building. The staff is excellent; always polite and gently and in any case you need a hand you will have one.

In trendy Palermo, this smallish boutique hotel provides excellent service and a great place to spend a short weekend in Buenos Aires. Would reccomend.

My partner stayed here for four nights this past week. Overall, it was good. The plusses: very caring staff. Always responded quickly to our needs (brought ironing board and iron every day we asked for it), and the waitresses in the restaurant were courteous and remembered our orders every day. Also - the breakfast - oh the breakfast!! A great selection every day, and it was all delicious. Also, the location was perfect for exploring the area, and the bed was comfortable. Finally, the shower had amazing water pressure everyday.

The only things I'd mention that need improvement are the lighting in the bathroom. Essentially, there is not enough light for makeup application (I'm glad I'm not a woman) or shaving purposes.

overall, this is a great place that probably just needs a little bit of an update and it'll be perfect. Worth it for the friendly staff and breakfast alone.

Room Tip: try to get a room away from the street towards the back - it can get a little noisy on the street.

We stayed here during our four days in Buenos Aires, and we really loved it. Location was great in Palermo- close to nearby restaurants, metro stop, and a walkable distance to the hip stores & bars. Our room was "European-size" which means on the smaller side, and the bathroom was slightly oddly designed (you walked two steps up to the shower stall), but it was still perfect for our stay. Staff was very helpful, and the female staff who served us breakfast every morning was very sweet--made sure she got our orders just right. Breakfast was really delicious- lots of yummy spreads and pastries accompanied main entree of your choice. All in all, we were very happy with the hotel and would definitely return to stay there next time.

Excellent location/security/cleanliness/service and breakfast. Our standard room was very basic though. Good enough with all the most important things being excellent.
