We stayed here for 4 nights and loved it. Elena went out of her way to accommodate us and recommend sights to see and things to do. We were here over an Argentinian public holiday and Elena even got us some local delicacies for breakfast that day. The location was perfect for us, we could walk everywhere or the subway... More

My husband and I stayed here in March for 5 nights. It was a great base for seeing all that BA has to offer. Really easy access to public transport - both buses and tubes - and a 10 minute walk from San Telmo. Elena was great; charming, friendly and a wealth of information. I really recommend this guest house... More

My friends and I stayed at PHEV for 4 days, 3 nights and we occupied the purple and green rooms (charming rooms). Elena definitely made our trip so much more special. It was like visiting an old friend! She is extremely sweet and helpful - organizing taxi pickup from EZE, money exchange, providing us the bus/subway card, giving us maps... More

We stayed in the violet room at the beginning and at the end of our Argentina trip, two nights each time. The stay was overall a very nice experience. The hosts, Silvia and Hernan were both so nice and helpful and welcoming. We could check in our room much earlier and we could also stay longer on the check out... More

I stayed in Petit Hotel El Vitraux for 6 nights in January. It is a little gem of a hotel. The green room (best room I think) looks out onto the patio and is lovely and large. Breakfast is great too. Just a pity it was stuffy, humid and hot outside so I did not relly use the patio. Hosts... More

Elena was a lovely host and we wished we could have stayed longer, but they were very supportive when we has to cut short our stay due to a last minute change to our Antarctica trip. The hotel is beautiful, breakfast is delicious, and it is close to San Telmo. They also have very good recommendations for places to eat... More

My husband & I arrived a whole hour earlier than expected but that wasn't a problem. Mike welcomed us & checked us into the Green Room.
