“Great location in an up and coming barrio”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

Stayed there twice recently and in both instances the welcome was friendly and staff were helpful.
slight gripes only are:
1. the second time the extractor fan in the bathroom didnt work and was not repaired whilst we were there even after reporting the fault - steamy bathrooms during showers.
2. The A/C in the room was a bit weak - never seemed to hit the desired temp although there were wafts of cold air produced.
3. The dining room is a bit small - there are only really 7 tables for 2 so if the hotel is full then breakfast goes in stages.

although the hotel is on a noisy road the double glazing and shutters on the road side rooms do a good job

the massage room in the spa is also small and cramped - the masseuse has to squeeze past the bed t odo a goo job - however the massage itself is great!

Room Tip: The delux rooms seem to have different sizes - 102 and 202 seem to be the larger ones

Dear Guest,

First of all, thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback on your recent stay with us. We are truly sorry about the problems you experienced during the past couple of days. Unfortunately we couldn't get a hold of a technician during the weekend, which is why we tried fixing the problem ourselves, but weren't able to; but I would like to assure you that we're working on it at the moment, as well as on the A/C. We would also like you to know that we'll take into account your other suggestions in order to keep improving our services at the hotel.

Thank you again for choosing us and please remember that our doors will always be open for your return to El Duque.
Greetings from all the staff

Superb place to stay. Arrived at 9am, hours before check-in time, after a flight from Europe and were sent straight into breakfast. Made very comfortable until the room was ready. Very nice pool area and helpful staff.

We spent a week at Duque Hotel Boutique and Spa between December 28 and January 4th and want to share with you some of our experiences with this wonderful place. It enjoys a #1 Trip Advisor rating for a reason. The staff at this boutique hotel goes beyond any expectations we had. On arrival we were greeted by Roberto (who, if you watch closely, is also in the website video) Roberto and his colleagues, Raquel, Taline, Barbara, and Nahuel, are simply wonderful people. They arranged for transportation, gave us great information about area restaurants and the kind of local knowledge that is very useful. I cannot tell you how impressed we are with these fine people. They are indeed world class!

Each morning a breakfast was served and was delicious. I especially enjoyed the fresh juices available They even have a coffee maker that seems to anticipate you might be expecting an American cup of coffee that is not as strong as the espresso! The media lunes are also wonderful. They look like croissants but are better and have a little sweet flavor.

The housecleaning was also wonderful and our room and bath was spotless.

Now, more about Raquel, Taline and Roberto. I truly hope the owner of Duque reads these reviews because these three individuals are treasures. Roberto, Taline and Raquel knew us by name instantaneously and treated us with so much attention that it seemed like we had known them forever. My words do not do these people justice but I have traveled a lot and am happy to share with Trip Advisor readers that you will not regret staying here. It is a small hotel with only 14 rooms but that's the secret sauce that makes it so special. You feel as if you are the only guest being pampered!

So, to my new friends at Duque Hotel-Roberto, Raquel, Taline, Barbara and all of the nice staff, we thank you! You're the best!

This little hotel offers rooms for one, twin and double configuration. This is perfect for a sole traveller wanting private space without paying luxe hotel prices. The hotel offers free wifi and breakfast daily. Don't forget to try the traditional Argentian breakfast - Crossaint with Dulce de leche and a coffee. The rooms are very very clean, quite and modern, with new facilities.

The hotel is located about 15 mins walk from the metro station and about 10 mins walk from the small bars and restaurants Palermo has to offer. All in all - a perfect location!

The staff are incredibly brilliant - their english is very good and customer service goes above and beyond.

I would definitely stay here again, and recommend it to anyone travelling through BA.

My wife and I stayed here as our first stop on our honeymoon and it was really the perfect start. Fantastic service with English speaking reception staff who were only too happy to help with dinner and tango show reservations as well as organising tickets to a Boca Juniors game - which was brilliant, highly recommend for the crazy atmosphere. We had a deluxe room with all we needed and a small patio. We used the small pool out the back every day especially with the hotter weather. The breakfast was delicious also. The hotel is in the best position to explore Palermo Soho and close to the subway into downtown.
We will definitely stay here again on our next visit to BA. Well done guys - keep up the good work.

We were finishing a 3 weeks trip around Argentina and wanted a nice hotel in Buenos Aires to spend our last 3 days. It was perfect! From the room, to the breakfast. Everybody is very welcoming, speaks very good English. And it was cool to relax a few hours next to the pool.

Great little hotel. Good location. Very helpful staff. Good plumbing. Good breakfast. Rooms are small but well-appointed. Highly recommended. We stayed at several hotels in Palermo and this was our favorite. The Don Julio restaurant just down the street is also excellent.
