After searching for months for a bed and breakfast in Palermo with a pool, we decided to go with Kala; what a gem in the city! Upon arrival we experienced nothing but kindness from its staff. From finding a cab at the last second before going to Androgue for our cooking class, which is almost 2 hours away to always coming home to a place that was spotless and with absolutely no intrusion whatsoever. The staff worked around the clock to make sure the guests were taken care of-sure some of the staff did not speak as much English, but if you find that to be such a problem, maybe traveling should not be on your itinerary...not every country's natives speak English.
We were a group of 4; two stayed in the Garden Suite and we stayed in Kala. I loved our room, not just because of the jacuzzi, but because it was peaceful and felt like home. The rooms were both clean had a basket of fresh towels awaiting us. Breakfast was your normal Argentinean with medialunas, array of cheeses, dulce de leche, ham and the usual coffee and orange juice with an assortment of fresh fruits and yogurt. It was just enough...eggs would have been a nice addition, but it was not missed as much because we were quite stuffed after breakfast.
As far as the location is concerned, it is smack dab in the middle of paradise! Tango classes were just in walking distance. The train was about 12 blocks away, but the area felt safe and we never encountered any problems whether alone or in a group. The area is also close to lots of bars, restaurants (major plus for me -as I am a foodie) and shopping boutiques. I recommend going to La Cabrera for dinner which is just a hop skip and a jump away for a great parilla!
Overall, our stay was well worth it from the staff to the location. I would do it again! Ciao!
