Hotel has a great sitting room and terrace on top floor. Best thing about the hotel, was the staff. They were all extremely helpful and friendly. There were many excellent restaurants in the area....

The place was nice enough but I kind of expected more for the price. The owner was extremely nice and looked after us well (as did the staff) but it was a generic hotel room but at a higher price. I might be asking too much but I expected a little more for the $230 US for one night.

The Vain Boutique Hotel is an incredibly welcoming, friendly, classy, comfortable hotel. I spent two nights and hope to go back some day. I didn't have a chance to use the jacuzzi, which looked totally inviting, in the open out on an upper deck. The staff are so friendly and hospitable.

My family and I stayed in the hotel for 5 days. The breakfast was the best we could find in Argentina, the wine was great, the staff were very helpful and attentive, and my kids loved it. The neighborhood was my favorite in all of Buenos Aires. Perfect.

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.

Located in the heart of Palermo Viejo neighborhood, only 15 minutes away from the main tourist attractions, VAIN Boutique Hotel gives the possibility of having another alternative to the noisy BA downtown. It preserves the "Porteno" neighborhood feeling, combined with a bohemian and avant-garde mixture that can be sensed in the variety of stores, from fashion designers, antique and design furniture to coffee shops, fashion restaurants and bars, along with the traditional ones. ... more   less
