Friendly and helpful staff, very nice rooms, good breakfast. From here you can Discover the city with underground near by. Safe place to walk around. This Boutique Hotel is a must as it gives you the privacy and comfort of a small hotel.

Overall great experience regarding pretty much everything. Rooms and hotel are really clean and modern. The location is perfect if you'd like to enjoy the city. Staff helped to pick shows and made surprise for the birthday to my wife! Breakfast is really good - what is not easy to find!

Hello Linda C ! Thanks to you for choosing us. We agree with you about taking the metro line d to reach downtown or Recoleta.

We had to move rooms because there was a problem with the bathroom. The rooms were clean but a little small, the airconditioning was also a bit patchy. However the staff were extremely friendly and helpful which really made for a pleasant stay.

Staying in Palermo

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.
