I cannot sing enough praises about Thibaud and his wife, Gabriela, as well as Thami. While this place is a boutique stay, it is extremely comfortable and hospitable. I came in super late and Thami welcomed me warmly. Despite the language barrier, she ensured I was comfortable, gave me a much needed glass of water, and showed me to my room.

The next morning, I had the pleasure of meeting Thibaud and Gabriela, who were extremely pleasant and friendly. Good lord, Thibaud's scrambled eggs are to die for - I was blown away by each bite and it's something I would love to replicate. I had read some reviews about the place being very strict but I don't know - I had a very pleasant stay and felt very welcomed and well taken care of.

But the highlight is the efforts Thibaud and Gabriela took to ensure I got to the airport safely and on time. When I had an issue with ordering a cab through Cabify, they arranged a taxi for me for a good rate, and Thibaud even came out of the hotel and spoke to the taxi driver and told me how much I need to pay and what to expect in return.

Really wonderful experience and I will certainly be back (hopefully without inconveniencing them too much this time).

We had a wonderful stay there. The host was kind and very helpful. The location in a quite neighbourhood with only short walking distance to the subway was ideal. The room was clean and nicely renovated.

I recently went to BA and stayed for 12 nights in Posada Gotan. It was a very clean and nice B&B. The room was cleaned every day. The bathroom was very clean.
The breakfast was nice. They served very nice home made jam. At Posada Gotan you feel like home, because you have breakfast with all the guest at one large table. Mr Thibaud is very helpfull and gives good and usable information about transportation in BA.
WIFI is available through entire b&b. I loved my staying in the Boedo area and Posada Gotan.

My wife and i spent 4 days and nights at this very comfortable and well run (Thibaud has the absolute best french drip coffee and croisonts every morning) B&B in the Boedo neighborhood of BA. The neigborhood is a bohemian artsy area easily accessible by subte (metro) or bus. Locals were pleasant and helpful as we got our bearings the first day - plenty o local eateries and bars. Definitely a great value and place to hang your hat while in BA!

We recently stayed at Posada Gotan as part of a week in Buenos Aires. The B&B is simple, and has a nice under-stated charm with clean rooms that we're recently renovated. The staff is also quite nice and very helpful in answering questions, getting taxis, etc.

Our main problem with Posada Gota, however, is the location. If you are looking for a fun BA neighborhood to wander around during day and night, then this is NOT the hotel for you. The nearest cafes and restaurants are 6-7 blocks away, and the choices are fairly limited. After about an hour exploring (that's about all there is to do), we ended up taking taxis to Palermo and other areas.

Our second issue was that the check-out was at 10:00, with a 50% charge if you check-out late. This was not explained to us at check-in (but in fairness was noted on the registry we signed), which led to a lot of frustration on our part when we went to check-out at 12:30, which seemed like a more normal time for a city in which you are generally up all night on the weekends. It was all the more frustrating, as we were the only guests at the hotel, so it was not like they needed the room.

Net, if you are looking for an out of the way place, want to save some money and dont mind a lot of commuting, stay here. If not, spend the little extra for a comparable (if not better place) in Palermo.

Response from gotan, Owner at Posada Gotan
Responded Dec 6, 2007
Dear guest, First, we would like to thank you for your nice comment and especially about the kindness of our staff, the cleanness and the charm of our Bed and Breakfast. We are so sorry if you couldn’t discover our neighborhood as it is really. We love it and we can’t let you destroy it as you did. It is a traditional and historical Tango neighborhood of Buenos Aires in which there is an intellectual and Bohemian spirit and more than one hour is needed to explore it and discover its real soul. Maybe you should have asked us where to go and what to do! Anyway, your stay at Posada Gotan lasted only one night and you didn’t choose to come! It was the last night of your trip and as you told us, the hotel where you had spent one week had no availability for this night. This hotel is one of the most expensive Boutique Hotel of Palermo Soho in which the price of the smallest bedroom is two time the price of our best Suite. Both hotels, we would say both concepts cannot be compared and we don’t consider that twice the price is a little extra. In our Posada, nobody has to check out strictly at 10 am. Most of our guests ask us to stay one or two hours more in the bedroom and we are always pleased to let them if we don’t need it for other guests. But you told us during your breakfast to check out at the end of the afternoon to have a shower before your long trip back home. In this case we have to clean the bedroom, give you new towels etc. This is a real late check out and has to be paid. We don’t understand the reason of your claim. To conclude we just wanted to say that we are sorry if you didn’t felt in your element for this night. Other guests love it, need it and choose it! And maybe one day is not sufficient to criticize so hardly a place. It is not fair!

Our last night in Argentina we stayed at Posada Gotan. It is well located near a subway station in a quiet neighborhood. Thibaud, our host, spoke fluent English and was most helpful, giving us a map of the area and pointing out good eating spots and attractions. Our room was large, overlooking the inner courtyard and we enjoyed the cool breeze coming through the open windows all night. Our flight out the next day wasn't until late evening.. We were able to leave our luggage at the hotel, do some sightseeing, and return to the hotel to change before Thibuld arranged a taxis for us to the airport. Breakfast included a glass of fresh squeezed orange juice, some great coffee, and a croissant. ( A little short on quantity but good quality.).

Very comfortable well run Relaxing B&B in a peaceful neighbor with close access to the Subte (subway). The owner, Thibaud, was extremely helpful and welcoming. Quiet rooms. Strongly recommend this B&B.

We have travelled quite a bit in central and south America and visited Buenos Aires before so we liked what we read about the Posada Gotan on the website and in travelers comments. We also wanted to stay somewhere where we might be able to experience something different from staying in a central tourist location. The good things to say about this guesthouse are that it is clean and it has a nice patio area. The rooms are small and a bit dark and the breakfast is adequate, if not quite as advertised on the website! BUT ….

The posada Gotan does NOT have 24 hour security or reception as advertised. It is situated in a dodgy area. Not too bad during the day for the 5 or so blocks to walk to the subway [part of it uphill & broken pavements] but at night it really gets ugly with drunks and all sorts in the street and infront of the place. We wanted to go out a lot more to dance-halls and bars and really see the real Buenos Aires but we couldn´t do as much as we wanted because there was no-one there at night to order taxis from and the dark streets and local nightlife made us feel like it was in no way safe to go outside and try to catch one. We felt ripped-off by the comments about the security on the website because when we stayed there were no staff at all after about 11 at night and what with the street noises and music coming from around the place all night we could not enjoy our stay.

We love Buenos Aires and we don´t want this review to give a bad impression of the city as a whole. But we think it is only fair to alert other travelers to the realities of this guesthouse as we found it. In the past we have been lucky choosing places by recommendations and reviews but this time the R & Rs didn´t reflect the reality.

Response from gotan, Owner at Posada Gotan
Responded Apr 30, 2009
Dear Rosa, You staid at Posada Gotan for 5 nights in February and it is true that on Saturday the 21st, nobody was at the reception between 10:30 pm and 2 am. Our Receptionist had to leave the place urgently but was replaced by Valentin 3 hours after. I perfectly remember because you told me your problem on Sunday morning . The following days, Valentin or I were present. On Tuesday night, I was at the B&B and I personally gave you the suggestion to go to Pan y Teatro, 7 blocs from Posada Gotan. Your comment on this restaurant shows that you loved it and that you had no problem to walk until there. We are sorry if nobody could call a taxi for you on that day (specially on Saturday night) and we understand if you got afraid by drunk men in the street. Our neighborhood is usually safe and calm, this specific day don’t reflect the reality of our Bed and Breakfast. I hope Tripadvisor readers will understand and will not generalize the situation. Best regards, Thibaud Marigny Owner

After staying one week at Posada Gotan, and before leaving Buenos Aires, we wanted to share our experience in this lovely Bed and Breakfast.

Thibaud, the owner, and all his team always did the best to help us to visit Buenos Aires and to give us the best attention. We discovered wonderful places and restaurants not indicated in our guide. We went to Oviedo, a very good Mediterranean restaurant in Recoleta and we had a wonderful experience in La Cabrera, one of the best steakhouse of the city (in Palermo Hollywood).

Gabriela, his wife is a fashion journalist and produces TV programs for FOX. She indicated us the best place to buy clothes and leather and she sent us to Rafaël Gorófalo, one of the best Prêt à Porter designer of Argentina (we went directly to the warehouse and had the best prices!)

The Posada is built in a house of 1900, very well restored. It is simple, elegant and has gorgeous services! A very good breakfast with fresh orange juice and French home made croissants and bread. There is a free access to Internet and a Wi Fi connection. Bedrooms are not very large but are very clean and have there private bathroom. It is a very quiet place and we could finally sleep well.

The neighborhood is interesting because of its little bars that give Tango concerts. It is not in the micro-center but we always took taxis which are very cheap (4/5 Dollars to go to one side to another of the city) Anyway, at the beginning of our trip, we where in a hotel in the very center of Buenos Aires. It is crowdie of people during the day and totally empty at night. That’s why we chose to stay in a neighborhood at the end of our trip.

We definitely recommend this place. Many thanks to Thibaud and all his team and see you soon!

This hotel is not in the center or near anything of particular interest.

The owner gave us horrible suggestions that wasted our time.

The reason that I would not recommend the hotel is that the rooms were aweful. They were clean but tiny with no clocks, shelves, hooks, drawers, phones. In fact there was no phone in the entire hotel for customer use. The only natural light coming into the rooms must be blocked out because it comes from the french doors which open onto the interior courtyard where anyone of the hotel guest can peer in.

The breakfast is recycled the entire week.

Responded Feb 22, 2007
Dear guest, It has been a surprise for us to find this really bad comment in Trip advisor. It is the very first time since the beginning of our activity. If you read the other comments, you will see that they are all very nice and make a completely different description of the Posada. If you had a problem during your stay, you could have informed us! So we could have done everything to repair it giving you an other bedroom or responding to your personal requests. You just had to ask us as all our guests do when they need something! Our neighborhood is not without interest. It has been declared a main tourist area by the government of the city of Buenos Aires for its bars and Tango places! Our breakfast is not recycled and we have phone and hairdryer for our guests. I am so sorry if I gave you horrible suggestions and waste your time! It would have been the first time. We always recommend the place where we like to go. We know perfectly our city and we have no interest to give you bad places to go! It is a shame that you don't declare your name and that we discover now your problem. We are so sorry about it. It has really affected us and we really don’t understand your motivations. Best regards, Thibaud Marigny Owner
