Hotel Tiana
Ranked #83 of 256 Buenos Aires B&B and Inns
Reviewed April 2, 2013 via mobile

Susanah and staff were excellent at Tiana, they were always helpful, from assisting to clean up a broken wine bottle in luggage to restaurants and other assistance.

One improvement could be the quality of the breakfast, whilst a good selection, the quality of the breads, croissants and eggs could be better.

When i go to abroad for vacation, i prefer to stay boutique hotels. Because their service is better than the bigger hotels' service. Again, i was right for this selection. The hotel was well located and the staff was very friendly. I enjoyed during my vacation.

I was in Buenos Aires for 2 weeks, and stayed at Hotel Tiana. I enjoyed my stay very much. The owner was very easy to work with, and made a point to help me out whenever I needed advice on the neighborhood, transportation, etc. The room was new, very nice, and extremely clean. I felt that the hotel was quite safe, and that the staff was very friendly. This is a small boutique hotel and almost feels like one is a guest in a home. Great for tourists who want to stay in San Telmo as well. Tons of bars and restaurants within 5 minutes of walking, and the Subte is about 8 blocks away. The wi-fi also worked great and was indispensable for me.

The Tiana has a great location, just a couple of minutes walk from Plaza Dorrego in San Telmo.
The common spaces are beautiful done up and, as the photos show, it's a pleasant place to spend some time. We found the rooms to be slightly less inspiring. Towards the back, it feels very much like you're staying in some sort of annex rather than the charming property on the photos.
On the plus side, the staff are very nice and Susana and her small team at the reception couldn't be more accomodating.
Finally, taking into account the price of the room, breakfast is adequate but there is clearly room for some improvement.
Altogether a good stay although lack of isolation from the elements would probably make this a less confortable hotel to stay in in the winter time.

We found this hotel after leaving the one we had originally booked in Defensa for 8 days, and which turned out to be easily the noisiest place we have ever stayed. Hotel Tiana was like heaven on earth for us after this disastrous start.This is quiet, with well appointed rooms, very comfortable beds, great linen and is spotlessly clean. An excellent breakfast in the dining room downstairs is a great start to the day.. It is a very good location in San Telmo, close to Plaza Dorrego and to many bars, cafes and restaurants. It is an easy 15 walk to the Plaza Mayo and the Florida pedestrian shopping district. It is also close to an underground station, making easy access to other areas of the city.
There are a number of bright, sunny and comfortable common lounges and computer access. WiFi is available also in rooms.
Staff are very helpful in assisting with all types of requests and information.
Excellent value for money. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Rooms upstairs are very quiet, with comfortable lounges close by.

Absolutely wonderful. Rooms spacious, clean & en-suite. Local to Plaza Dorego & everything it has to offer. Manned hotel entry so the hotel is secure & you can turn up 24 hours whether checking in or coming back from a big night out. Left all our belongings in the 2 rooms we had for 2 full days while we went out sightseeing (laptops, cameras, iPads etc), no problems. Good quality L'Occitaine bathroom products provided. Very good breakfast for all tastes (2 of us are vegetarians). All the free tourist help you can use INCLUDING booking you in for a tango show with or without meal, booking transfers to & from the airport at local prices AND all other information + maps you need. We also got a free, VERY late checkout so we could go out all day after checkout, leave our luggage (2 rooms' worth) & have a shower before leaving for our flights in the evening. All of us would DEFINITELY stay here again. It's not the Ritz but it's true Buenos Aires at an affordable & worthy price.

We are just checking out of Hote Tiana, where we were especially impressed with the friendly service. Suzana at the front desk was helpful with recommending restaurants and official exchange offices with good rates.

The rooms aand bathrooms are clean and the beds did the trick when getting over jet lag. The hotel is located in a safe neighbourhood near the touristic Boca area. Finding a good meal is never difficult as hotel is surrounded by many restaurants frequented by locals.

If I could find one thing that would ever so slightly bother me about this hotel is the fact that the hotel room doors are rustic, which adds charm, yet at the expense of extra security. Having said that, the entrance of the hotel is well secured and the rooms include a security safe.

Oh yes ...the common areas, especially the terrace, is great.
