This boutique hotel is situated in a quiet neighbourhood, not far from bustling Palermo. It has moderate cozy rooms and a garden as a little oasis. The staff is very friendly and helpfull, and the old mansion has a good atmosphere. And you can play piano, if you want to!

Some nice, spacious rooms. Pleasant garden and terraces where you can sit, good breakfasts, access to kitchen facilities. Very helpful and pleasant staff make this a home from home feel. Bit of a walk to the metro.

My husband and I chose to stay at the Livian Guesthouse while we were in Buenos Aires in December. We loved it! According to a native of Buenos Aires, the area that it is in is quite safe and quiet (and it always felt that way), and the hotel itself is charming. We stayed in the Kiss Suite and had... More

This hotel/hosteria is in an old house in a residential side street in Palermo. From the outside you wouldn't know it was a hotel so If you are traveling to it by taxi make sure you have the road name and house number as without they will be unlikely to find it for you.

Livian Guesthouse has a great garden, lovely rooms, clean and comfortable. Our room had a shared bathroom which was nice and clean. Very nice people! We stayed here with our 1,5 year old daugther and had a great time! Relatively close to Palermo shops.

Except for clean rooms, comfortable beds, nice breakfast and friendly, helpful staff - it was the details I fell for; the fresh flowers next to bed, the warm colors, the art, the decorations and the lit incense and candles in the stairs in the beginning of the evening.

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.
