A gorgeous French style old house totally renovated to turn it into a charming Bed&Breakfast where you will be received by... a French host! Bright rooms well decorated, each one with a private bathroom with shower. The generous and home-made breakfast is served in the dining room, next to the lovely terrace. The living room, the patio and the terrace are common spaces in the house.

Characterized by the French-style mansions which are the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this neighborhood is an experience like no other in Buenos Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll also find a rich cultural scene centered on the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library, and the Recoleta Cultural Center; as well as some great shopping spots, like the Buenos Aires Design Mall with an artists' fair set up in Plaza Francia every weekend.

It's not always easy to work the keys to get into the Petit Palais - but once inside Gilles makes you feel right at home with his 3 cats, lovely homemade bread, jam and yogourt for breakfast and all his personalized tips on what to do and see around town. The rooms are small,

Our room was small, but comfortable, and we felt safe and well-looked-after the whole time we were there. The manager, Gilles, is very attentive, helpful, and kind and he makes fabulous breakfasts, too! The location is terrific, as you can walk to most destinations or catch a

We loved Gilles and his recommendations, he was a superb host with a very beautiful home. Any help we needed from him, he was willing to assist. Unfortunately our room was rather small (incl the shower which was tiny and we are normal sized people). We felt the room was

Hola, The closest Metro station are “Bulnes” or “Carlos Gardel” both are 7 blocks away, but you will see the bus is much easier as the metro doesn’t have a lot of interconnection. Yes, there are a lot of local restaurants and shops. Hope it was helpful. Kind regards Gilles

"Room on bottom floor was the most private, top floor rooms have more space and sunlight and might be suitable to couples."
"Maybe the up rooms are better, so the ground floor has some street noise."
"Our room overlooked the road and there was a certain amount of traffic noise."
"There is no lift so if you request a ground floor room if you don't want to carry heavy suitcases upstairs, although Gilles does pitch in."
"2nd room up the stairs Little bit of road noise but didn't bother us"
$72 - $95 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
