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

The concierge was also extremely knowledgeable and provided us with great travel and restaurant suggestions. Close to great places to eat and shop. Only... 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

Everything ! The staff was very very nice and always helpful, we even have been upgraded. 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. The decoration of the hotel, they have a unique... More

I was here for an unusual reason. 36 of us came to Buenos Aires from the United States to create some sculptures in a park in collaboraton with our fellow blacksmiths. That means 36 of us, mostly other blacksmiths stayed in this hotel together for 10 days. I think our opinion of the place was unanimous. The hotel was unique... More

Really stylish boutique hotel, inside and out, on a quiet street close to the Palermo restaurants and bars. Friendly, and nice just to sit in the lounge area enjoying the lovely details. Only issue, no door to the bathroom of our double room, just an open archway.

Excellent experience. Always welcoming and helpful with learning new palabras. They also helped me immensely when I back went out and I couldn't walk. Horrible timing but the staff was exceptionally helpful, kind and supportive.

Only stayed one night but I would happily go back. Really helpful and friendly staff, great decor and attention to detail and a brilliant location. The hotel has a small bar and courtyard which provide a wonderful retreat. The only minor details that might upset others (not me) was that there was no door on the bathroom (inherent to the...

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.
