There is much to recommend this hotel. It is small and intimate, quiet, very clean, sports a well-curated wine bar, has a cozy courtyard for lounging, serves fine breakfasts, and has comfortable, well-maintained rooms. An elevator goes to both floors. The location is in Palmero Soho, a few short blocks from restaurants, trendy shops and boutiques, and a 15-minute walk to Plaza Italia where one can join free walking tours and find the nearest subway stop. We always felt safe in the hotel's neighborhood and were never bothered.
But the most important reason to stay here is the owner/manager Frauke ("Frankie") and her amazing staff, including Pamela, Felipe ("Philip"), Christie (the sommelier and "Wine Girl"), and the others who make this a truly special place. They like each other and like their jobs, and it shows in the kind of service they provide to guests. They are helpful with tips on touring and are reliable and prompt in making arrangements for transportation, restaurant reservations, etc. In short, they make an otherwise pleasant experience become exceptional.
The rooms use the 3-pronged outlets with the two main prongs forming a "V" at 45 degrees, like an Australian adapter. The third vertical opening is for grounded plugs which you probably won't need, so finding an adapter with just the two slanted flat prongs will be adequate.
Christie will occasionally organize evening wine tastings with food pairings. We went to another tasting in Palermo Soho at a nearby well-advertised venue, and we all agreed that Christie delivered the better product. She knows her wines and is very informative. Cost was $45 USD per person. The food is adequate as a light evening meal.
