“feeling like a guest at a good friend's home”
Reviewed October 9, 2011

I developed a very favorable opinion of this wonderful 'boutique-type' small hotel long before my wife and I arrived for a one-week stay in Sep. This is because I had been corresponding with Cornel, the manager of Miravida Soho, on a number of occasions, and was amazed by how quickly and attentively he had responded to each of my inquiries.
I was looking for a small, comfortable place to stay during the week my wife and I would be in Buenos Aires - our first visit there - to participate in a large-scale international congress, and not wanting to stay at a large and impersonal hotel in the city center, where the congress would be taking place.
My hope was to be able to enjoy our time in BA more by staying in a more suburban setting, in an area of tree-lined streets with low-rise buildings that retained a 'neighborhood quality', and where one could enjoy walking, shopping, siting at a cafe and dining in the neighborhood.
Palermo Soho is just such an area.
Arriving at Miravida Soho by taxi from the airport in the morning, my first impressions of the hotel were very favorable. It is a classically European looking building on a small plaza. The reception area is next to a comfortable sitting area, that opens into an area with tables and banquette seating that serves as the hotel's breakfast and snack service area, and bar.
Through French doors, there is a small and well-designed outdoor sitting area with tables. We had breakfast there several days, and sat with friends there, sipping wine from Miravida Soho's well-stocked wine cellar in the evening, before going to dinner at one of the excellent neighborhood restaurants that Cornel and his wife and co-manager, Frauke, recommended to us.
But I cannot pass by the hotel registration experience without saying how thankful and impressed my wife and were that, after the long overnight flight to BA from Miami, we were able to go to our room right away, and did not have to leave our suitcases at the registration desk and find something to do for several hours, until the standard afternoon check-in time.
Cornel appeared at the door of our room, just as we got out of the elevator and were being shown to our room by the friendly young woman who greeted us at the reception desk.
We very much appreciated the thoughtfulness and help we were given at check-in.
Our room, on the third floor and overlooking the courtyard, with views of the neighboring buildings from the French doors that opened onto a small balcony, was somewhat small, but big enough. The large bathroom had a well-designed walk-in shower. Care had been taken with all the fittings and furnishings of the room, to make them attractive, functional and consistent with the classical appearance of the building.
Since I had to spend a substantial amount of my time at the congress, it was a great comfort to come back to the congenial atmosphere created and nurtured at Miravida Soho by the presence, friendliness and helpfulness of Cornel and Frauke. It was their concern for the comfort and enjoyment of everyone who stayed at their small and cheerful hotel that made my wife and I - and everyone else who was staying there - feel like welcome house guests of Cornel and Frauke.
I had written to Cornel for his advice in helping me to arrange a dinner for eight colleagues and friends during the congress. The restaurant he reccommeded was outstanding. Before walking to the restaurant, Cornel, Frauke and their staff arranged an Argentine wine-tasting for our group at the hotel , accompanied by tapas.
Cornel was also very helpful in arranging a lunch meeting for me and seven colleagues during the congress, at another excellent local restaurant.
Cornel and Frauke were always ready to help with whatever we needed to make our stay enjoyable for us...and for our daughter and son-in-law who joined us during our stay at Miravida Soho.
When we left the hotel after our week there, Cornel and Frauke saw us off, just as one would for family, or for house guests.
It is now more than two weeks since we left, and the pleasant glow of being with Cornel and Frauke at Miravida Soho Hotel and Wine Bar is still with us.
We hope we will have an opportunity to stay with them again.

Our third trip in the past four years, we discovered our home away from home in Buenos Aires, the Miravida Soho Hotel. Consumate hosts, Frauke and Cornel provide luxurious accommodations for a modest price in a beautiful setting. Our room reminded us of Paris with its slanted ceiling, beveled glass set in dark wood and its intimate feel. Miravida's wonderful staff completed the experience. Thank you, Frauke, Cornel and the staff for all you did for us. We'll be back. Darryl & Martha, USA

We stayed here early September, after a few issues with our flight we arrived a day later than expected, the staff were so helpful and when our luggage didn't arrive from our flight they constantly called the airline to help get it to us!!! This aside the Hotel is charming, good location and great wines! The owners and staff were lovely, friendly and helpful, as I stated before!! The only regret I have is that we didn't stay here for our whole trip! If I was to return to BA, I would definitely return!

This hotel and wine bar made us feel so comfortable that by the time we left, we felt like family.
Frauke and Cornel are the ultimate hostess and host. They and their staff make you feel
special with their prompt attention to any of your needs.The rooms, the helpfulness with making plans, sharing wine with conversation in the evening...these are all things we will remember. Buenos Aires will always generate great memories for us and the Miravida Soho is
an essential part of making the trip so memorable for us. John and Joan, Chicago

This boutique hotel puts a big smile on your face. The staff is always paying attention to the guests and provide you with some good tips. A bonus is that they serve excellent vines and the breakfast is yummie! The rooms are comfortable and decorated with great care. The restaurants they recommanded were perfect. All that in the great area Palermo Soho!

After much deliberation, we picked this hotel based on Trip Advisor reviews. And what an excellent choice it was.

We knew we had made the right decision from the moment we received a very helpful e-mail soon after booking detailing various restaurants and shows with the hotels' own, objective, reviews.

The hotel has a nice cosy and boutique feel. The room we stayed in was quite small (no.2? - it was on the first floor at the back), but we had haggled the price down and were perfectly happy with it.

It is located within a 5 minute walk of the underground (which will take you quickly to most of the major sights) and the shopping/bars/restaurant centre of trendy and bohemian Palermo.

The area seemed perfectly safe, even after midnight.

The highlight of our stay (even better than the French Toast for breakfast, which was very good) was the very warm and helpful welcome we received from Frauke and Cornel and all of their staff. They really know what they were doing and it was great swapping stories with them and other guests each evening over some very nice glasses of red wine. They also provided us with good dinner recommendations – we liked Don Julios but the local place a few doors along that they recommend was also very enjoyable and much cheaper (albeit much more basic and less slick).

If you’re thinking of going to a Tango show, I would strongly recommend Complejo Tango - pretty touristy (inevitably), but good value, great singers and dancers, decent food and the tango lesson beforehand was great fun.

PS: for any sad runners like us, it is also only 5-8 minutes jog to a number of big BA parks with plenty of safe route options (including a measured 1.5k route around the lake – where lots of locals were running).
