Adorable hotel! Very friendly service. The breakfast is custom and very tasty. The bedroom is very well decorated. There are bicycles avaiable for guests. The location is good, 2 blocks walk to subway and very closer than restaurants, shops, etc.

We stayed at Vain our last weekend in Buenos Aires after spending six weeks living in Argentina. The service was fantastic - letting us store extra luggage for four days while we traveled to Ushuaia. Breakfast was excellent and included everything you could want. Even though we were well acquainted with Palermo, the staff of the hotel were very knowledgeable... More

Small, modern hotel in a good neighborhood (Palermo). We only stayed for one night, but the rooms were comfortable and clean. They even made an exception and catered to our very early (5:30 am) breakfast, since we had an early flight out of Buenos Aires.

The staff was very kind and we were very pleased by the service they've provided, specially on the breakfast, which was freshly prepared for the guest at the very moment the guests get on the breakfast room.

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.
