What a great little hotel, super stylish, yet not pretentious. Friendly staff. Clean, modern room (I was in room 20), comfortable bed, quiet. The hotel is a former grand personal residence, so it's set up like a home, not a cookie cutter hotel box. It's an excellent value, too. The neighborhood is nice and safe, with several restaurants and cafes...

Good locaton, but a bit pricy when you see the room. Not so nice - looks much more inviting on the photos on the net. Many stairs, so if you have a heavy luggage be aware. Nice staff, not very clean in my room. And a mouldy smell. Also, not so easy to arrange air port pick up - many...

Our first room was dingy and dark with no natural light. It opened onto a corridor and screens had to be kept closed for privacy. Our next room had French windows onto the streets and a small balcony but the traffic noise was deafening. General problem with soundproofing so noise inside also carried. Both rooms had 'industrial' style bathrooms, concrete...

In Feb/March 2016 I booked rooms for 36 people for 10 days. We are all crafts people. I began making my arrangements 6 months in advance. Manager Silvana helped me through the process which was new to me. The staff all spoke some English which helped very much. The staff was always polite, helpful, presentable, and courteous.

Location is superb -- walking distance to restaurants, bars, designer clothing stores and Plaza Serrano. The neighborhood of Palermo is fun and artsy neighborhood with a modern bohemian feeling. Nice grafitti art throughout the neighborhood. Staff speaks many languages with helpful tidbits throughout BA. Please do not forget your 21 per cent VAT reduction when paying with a foreign credit...

Thanks to recognize that our prices are that same as an Hostal.

We spent 4 nights in this great hotel with great location. We loved the bed, the airco, the coffee, the service and atmosphere. All staff spoke 3 languages fluent, and were extremely helpful. I hesitate between 4 and 5 stars. Some things could be improved (eg very small bathroom and no wifi in the room->4 stars), but the price is...

Managers are french and speak also spanish & english. The house is very nice, well decorated, with many stairs. Room is very clean, with a designed shower, conditioning air and a very confortable king size bed. Managers gave us some advices for restaurants and they are applying the new argentine policy concerning taxe refund for foreigners paying by credit card.

Neighborhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighborhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favorite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.

“Top floor rooms tend to be smaller but you are next to the rooftop terrace. Lower floors with high ceilings. Any choice is good value.”
