“Cosy, charming vintage boutique hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013 via mobile

Livian Guesthouse has a great garden, lovely rooms, clean and comfortable. Our room had a shared bathroom which was nice and clean. Very nice people!
We stayed here with our 1,5 year old daugther and had a great time!
Relatively close to Palermo shops.

We spent 3 nights there and since the very beginning we felt at home ; large garden , a small room but good bathroom accomodation, a nice breakfast and a very helpfull staff; all that in the Palermo neighboor , which lies relatively close to the center and offers a lot of possibilities for restaurants and shopping . I recommend the place and will certainly stay there again .

Room Tip: Some rooms do not have air conditionning and there is a great variety between them

If you want the feeling of having close relatives living in Buenos Aires. This is as close as you can get.

Super staff who balance your need for privacy with an open mind and interest in your wish for an exiting and a personal experience of Buenos Aires.

The quiet townhouse atmosphere and the private garden area gives you the relaxing charge that you need to experience the stunning diversity and "noisy" Buenos Aires.

A couple of the the real authentic Tango Milogas ( Salon Canning, La viruta, Villa Malcom, El Yeite Tango club) are within walking distance.

When I go back. Livian is my choice : )

I strongly recommend Livian Guesthouse! Except for clean rooms, comfortable beds, nice breakfast and friendly, helpful staff - it was the details I fell for; the fresh flowers next to bed, the warm colors, the art, the decorations and the lit incense and candles in the stairs in the beginning of the evening. The cute garden with sofas, plants and flowers was a great place to relax after visiting the cafés, boutiques and galleries of Palermo.

We spent three nights here and really enjoyed our stay. The staff were helpful, and the guesthouse was within walking distance of the subte, and near to good restaurants, cafes, and shops. Our room smelled a little musty, but the bed was super comfy, and the shower hot and powerful! Also, the garden was a lovely place to hang out in and have a glass of wine. I would stay there again, a way better option than the cookie-cutter hotel chains!

Thank you for sharing your opinion of Livian Guesthouse. We are glad that our location was so ideal for your plans. Palermo is a beautiful part of the city full of restaurants and bars. We appreciate your comment about the smell and we take our guest feedback very seriously. Livian Guest House is a building from the 30s, and as the old house that it is, requires constantly improvements and spares to make our place a good site for visitors. We apologize about that. We would be happy to have you back anytime!

We stayed at the Livian on our way into Argentina and were delighted with our choice. The Livian is located close to Soho, Palmero which, like all Soho's, has a wide choice of restaurants and shops. We stayed in an ensuite room near the first floor outdoor terrace, which we loved. We also liked being able to make ourselves a coffee in the kitchen when we wanted to. We loved the eclectic mix of furniture and styles and enjoyed the company of the other guests we met. We booked our last night in Argentina and it felt like coming home.
