This is an old pension converted to a very nice hotel. It has the charm of an old traditional building with the amenities of a small and intimate modern hotel. The room was very comfortable and well equipped, decorated tastefully in a minimalist style. The ground floor is an attractive common area, including the inner courtyard. At the top, there... More

I only stayed for one night, wasn't so clean as shown in the pictures. The people however are friendly and nice. Breakfast is poor, but there's Starbucks a couple of blocks away (10 min walking) there's also a nice place for light breakfast "Janio", also a couple of blocks away

Two friends and I stayed in a triple room for a few nights here (room 7). The room had its own bathroom and shower with great water pressure, but there are also rooms that are just rooms and use shared bathrooms. Our room was right above the entrance so we had good wifi, even in the room but the downside... More

I don't know if I was expecting better, but upon seeing the room I was disappointed. Concrete flooring, separate sink-toilet setup, semi-see through curtains and overall dark and dreary. Not to mention it was FREEZING! And that was my initial reaction. I spent three nights and in spite of sad first impression, I ended up enjoying my stay. The staff... More

We stayed here July 2016 as the first night of our trip round South America. It was a lovely place to stay, comfortable beds and good showers. Wifi is good in the communal area but it is a shame that there was none in the rooms. It is in a nice location- in the food district on buenos aires- and... More

Great little hotel in the Palermo neighbourhood of Buenos Aires, on a quiet street in a very safe part of the city. The hotel was immaculate and extremely well decorated inside - both modern and homely at the same time. Our room was one of the cheap ones on the top floor (Room 20) so, as expected, it was small...

I found it by chance on the internet looking for a pleasant sounding place to stay, at a reasonable price, in this fabulous part of Buenos Aires; restaurants, shops etc. all within easy walking distance. How lucky I was. It's the most charming hotel, decorated with enormous taste with its own quaint courtyard open to the sky and a wonderful... More

Even if the local staff don't speak English they still find a way to help you and give you good tips to visit the city. Some of them are French for the fellow French speakers.

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.

“My room was on the 1st Floor overlooking the inner courtyard. Others, cheaper, are on the top floor leading off the sun-roof.”

“If you are renting on the spot, it doesn't hurt to ask to look at the room. None of them have great views, that I could see. You can save by booking online well in advance. At the hotel, you can offer to pay cash and get a good discount or possibly even the on-line rate.”
