Kevin, Marcos and David are awesome, i cant recall the ladies names, but they are great also. i Stayed in 3 different rooms because i wanted to, they never said no to anything, all the rooms are well...

We made a last-minute booking with Vain Boutique Hotel for one night and couldn't have been happier with our choice. The hotel is well-situated in BA's Palermo section, very close to a number of restaurants, the underground, and Avenida Santa Fe for shopping. Vain was a standout for its amazing service - we spoke with three members of the staff... More

This is a small friendly and great place to stay. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff - Kevin was particularly helpful. The rooms are comfortable and the breakfast is yummy. Close to walk to Palermo and close to a subte station to get to other places

A real treat to stay here in the hustle and bustle of BsAs. The hotel is very clean, comfortable and stylish.

We stayed in the Vain hotel for five nights while visiting Buenos Aires. The hotel is located in Palermo, near many restaurants, subway station, bus stations, walking distance to ZOO and botanical gardens, and stores. This boutique hotel brought the restored historical building to its former glory and mixed the old with the new. The hotel room included an excellent... More

Cleaning and guest supporting are key points. Unfortunately I were in a long connection on AEP and couldn't enjoy as much as Vin deserves. Close to the best areas of Palermo. Also has a easy access from AEP.

The roof terrace and upper lounge is lovely. Breakfast was great to set us up for a day's sightseeing. The hotel is in Palermo which was a good area and felt very safe. We walked around... More

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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
