“Outstanding service, brilliant hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

Brilliant hotel. The rooms and location are fantastic but it is the service that sets the Glu apart.

The staff are outstanding in their common sense approach to helping guests with everything they need. Your stay in BA will definitely be improved by staying here.

Very impressed. All the wonderful comments of previous reviews are accurate. The staff goes beyond your expectations to make you happy. Very clean and quiet. Great location too in the heart of Palermo. Safe area. To walk around in. An easy jog to downtown parks too.

Don't be wary of the huge number of outstanding reviews. The Glu Hotel is one of our best hotel experiences . Small and intimate with the service of a five star hotel and the personal warmth you would expect in a cozy B&B. There has been great attention to detail and functionality in the rooms and amenities. They don't just respond to guest needs, they anticipate what might make the traveler comfortable. Our arrival was late in the evening from the airport and we were offered yogurt and fruit since we had not had dinner. Another evening we arrived back to our room to a bucket of champagne after having mentioned we were celebrating a special anniversary. Berthe, Patricia and all of the staff provide a wonderful base from which to explore Buenos Aires.

I had the most WONDERFUL time at the Glu. This boutique hotel sincerely blew me away. The property was beautiful and well appointed. The rooms were large and comfortable. And the location was perfect -- in the heart of chic Palmermo Soho, 12 minutes from the green metro line which brings you straight to the city center and steps away from great shopping and restaurants. However, the most impressive part of our entire stay was the AMAZING staff. They went above and beyond to make my time in Buenos Aires unforgettable. They set up candles, chocolate, and a card for Valentine's Day and gave me a piece of delicious cake on my birthday! Eva and Devorah were so accommodating and bent over backwards for me. Maria, Aixa, and the other wonderful staff members were also extremely helpful. We got recommendations from a local perspective, a plethora maps, and 5 star service. Would definitely return here on my next vacation.

Room Tip: Even their standard room is great!

From the minute you arrive at this very small hotel in Palermo Soho all the staff could not be more welcoming. Depending on the time of day when are checking in, you are offered coffee/tea cold drinks or wine/beer if it is that time of the day. They give you maps, make reservations for dinner.
The area is safe to walk to and from dinner. Never before have I had laundry charge by the bag full as it is always by the item....breakfast can be in your room or in the lobby. As the hotel is only small then it is like having breakfast with the family. We were recommended Crizia which is just around the corner and the food was sooooo good we ate there twice! We will stay there again if I am lucky enough to go back to Buenos Aires.

Room Tip: We had a back room with a balcony and lots of natural light. Below is the Glu courtyard.

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....
