“Great hotel in a great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

We had a great experience at The Glu Hotel. After a VERY expensive cab ride from the airport (believe the warning and book a car...the taxi drivers are thieves) we were greeted with a warm welcome. We were shown a map of Buenos Aires while our bags were taken to the room and after we shared what we were looking to do during our trip we were advised how best to make it all happen. The restaurant recommendations were great, the breakfast was good, and overall our stay was great. The only negative I can even site is that it is a bit of a walk to the subway, but that's not the hotel's fault as it's in the perfect area to serve as home base for our trip. Overall, believe the reviews and book the Glu.

Just returned from Buenos Aires and had a great time at the Glu Hotel. The staff were really professional and helpful. Nothing was too much. The rooms was spacious and central to a lot of restaurants and shops.
Will definitely return and recommend this to others.

Room Tip: All rooms are good in size....

From the moment we walked in at 2am, we were treated like VIP's. The service is 5star+, the rooms are spacious and CLEAN. The staff gave us directions and suggestions for our daily excursions and again the service in this boutique was better than the large hotels.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting and the prices are a bargain for what you are getting.

Room Tip: Rooms were quite and faced the courtyard.

The Glu hotel is an attractive boutique hotel located in Palermo Soho. We stayed there four nights in February 2013. I do not think that we were ever greeted the way we were upon arrival: Eva came out of the hotel with a bright smile and helped us feel cared for and at home immediately. Almost felt like she welcoming us back after a long absence. The room that we had, 203, was opening on a balcony above the central patio with large sliding glass doors, consequently it had lots of light and was very quiet. The room was lovely, very large and extremely comfortable. Other reviews in Tripadvisor mention problems with the bathroom door and no space for the toilet. While it is true that someone sitting on it would impede full opening of the door, this was not a serious concern as it is otherwise quite a nice, modern and attractive bathroom. The staff was exceptionally helpful and dedicated. They would share information about your requests with other staff. You never had to explain twice what you wanted. When the person at the front desk changed, the new person already had the details. They were proactive, offering help in a way that made you comfortable to ask anything at any time. Breakfast was good, perhaps more simple than some people might like, but we felt that it was healthy and good tasting with in our opinion adequate and amply sufficient choices.

My wife and I are at the end of a six night stay at the Glu and it has been exceptional. A fantastic location in the heart of vibrant Palermo, a tremendous room with all amenities and space to burn, and staff with a collective attitude that any other hotel can only aspire to. Aixa, Eva, Maria, Mercedes: such friendliness, personal care, attention to detail and good advice: nothing was a problem. Congratulations on such a well presented and managed establishment. And then there were the unexpected extras (thank you so much) that we can't mention because then they wouldn't be unexpected for any future guest.

The Glu Hotel is located in the Palermo area in a very safe and walkable neighborhood with great restaurants and shopping around the corner. We were lucky to book 6 nights in the master suite. The room was very special with a large patio and great living space--highly recommended.

We are a gay, married couple from the US and it was our first time in Buenos Aires. We had made few advance arrangements and were concerned that without Spanish that the logistics of such a large city might prove difficult. The Glu Hotel staff addressed our concerns and truly made our trip amazing.

We have read the other on-line reviews but were still overwhelmed by the interest that Maria, Eva and Aixa poured into our restaurants, city travel and attractions. After 6 nights, the hotel felt like a second home with our hotel daughters. On the last morning due to bad weather on the East coast of the US, our flights were canceled and Axia managed to rebook our flights for that same evening and we returned on time. If you enjoy the opportunity to benefit from informed, caring local guides, then the Glu Hotel is the place.

Room Tip: The master suite is well worth the extra cost.

The Glu is a lovely boutique hotel located in Palermo SOHO. The location is ideal. Palermo SOHO is not as upscale as Recoletta, but it's definitely where the action is...Just steps from our front door we found nice shops, great restaurants, bars and clubs. You could find somewhere to eat or hang-out 24 hours a day and you are just a short taxi ride away from most of the cities major attractions. The area is very safe and we had no issues walking around. Even late at night the streets are filled with people making it a safe walking environment. I liked staying here because I felt like I got a taste of the true Buenos Aires.

The hotel itself is very clean and modern. We stayed here at the beginning and at the end of our tour of Argentina, so we experienced 2 different rooms. The Glu Suite was spacious and comfortable with a large balcony, but their standard room was also great. It was not small or cramped. It suited us just fine. You have all the amenities that you would have at any top hotel in the US, and the water pressure in the shower is awesome!

Wait, I saved the best for last...The staff at the hotel is beyond amazing. They are not only helpful and courteous, but they truly go above and beyond. As I said in the title of this review, "I didn't know that I had friends in Buenos Aires." That is how I can best describe the staff at The Glu. This great group of people really take the time to tell you about all the best places in Buenos Aires and they can help you with almost anything. In their bag of tricks they have electrical converters, umbrellas, etc...practically anything that you might need on the fly. I would definitely stay here again the next time that I am in Buenos Aires! Thank you Eva, Aixa, and Maria! You girls Rock!!!!
