Beautiful hotel, furniture and rooms could do with a bit of TLC. Breakfast OK, day receptionist was really nice not so the night time receptionist, he did not even look at us after allowing us in and giving us our room keys, just grunted and carried on with his computer game. We stayed for a week had a few problems... More

If it wasn't for the staff, I probably would have rated this place as average. But thanks to them , the stay here was well beyond average! Shout out to Kevin, Leonardo and Guillermo for making my stay there very pleasant. I've been solo traveling for a couple months now and these guys were approachable and offered lots of insights...

This is a small hotel on the third floor of a beautiful old apartment building. The decor is Victorian and lovely. It was very comfortable and in a central location from which to explore the city. Reception staff was very helpful and courteous. I definitely recommend this hotel! What would make this a great hotel: more variety for breakfast (the... More

We stayed at two locations in Buenos Aires. At Rooney's and at a hotel in Palermo. Both are in good locations but for different reasons. Palermo is in the heart of the hip and trendy area of Buenos Aires, with cool restaurants, sidewalk cafes, and small shops, though it is a bit away from some of the tourist spots. Rooney's... More

I have been pleased by the personnel, the service and the location of this hotel. Moreover I got an upgrade of the room without extra costs since I had a lot of luggage. It was a pleasure staying here, away from the hustle of Buenos Aires.

Great location near Calla subte station, with plenty of restaurants and bars around it. The architecure of an old victorian building is nicely renovated and maintain the confort and refinement. Beside the noise of av. Callao, the room is nice to sleep restful. The bathroom is old fashioned, but very clean. We really enjoyed the time at Rooney Hotel.

My boyfriend and I stayed at Rooney's when we were in Buenos Aires. The hotel was very cute and cozy. The rooms are old but have a very charming feel. The showers are not the best, but good enough. There are many cool restaurants and pubs around the area that you can easily walk to. San Nicolas is pretty far... More

We only stayed one night, but truly enjoyed it. I personally like the old lift which still worked very efficiently. The cars at night can be somewhat noisy, but as I am a deep sleeper it didn't bother me at all.

Staying in San Nicolas

Neighborhood Profile
San Nicolas
Immersed in the sound of honking horns and the footsteps of busy office workers, the Microcentro area of San Nicolás is where visitors will encounter the true hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, walking down streets lined with office buildings and banks. The financial district is well-known for its vibrant atmosphere and unstoppable rhythm during office hours. After dark, the hubbub migrates to Corrientes Ave., where theater lovers might start their evening at a play and end it in one of the many traditional pizzerias nearby. During the day, Corrientes is known for its many bookshops and classic cafés, which are located just minutes away from some famous landmarks, like the Obelisco, Avenida 9 de Julio, and the Teatro Colon.
