This is a great hotel that is full of character and run by a wonderfully attentive and welcoming staff. The room we stayed in was well-appointed and spacious. The beds were comfortable, even the sofa-bed (which can, in some hotels, be a bit of a pain in the back...). We were fortunate enough to book the room with a balcony overlooking Calle Malabia, which was the perfect location for enjoying a glass of wine and the relaxed atmosphere of the neighborhood. Most of the rooms have private bathrooms across the hall from the rooms and, yes, the bathrooms are on the small side. But we found neither of these to be an issue and these certainly shouldn't cause anyone to think twice about staying here! Breakfast was one of the best we had in our tour of hotels in Argentina, with eggs freshly cooked to order by a smiling staff member. All of the logistics - booking, checking-in, checking-out, ordering a transfer to the airport - were easily taken care of with the help of the fantastic staff.
As for location: Palermo Soho is slightly out of the way for the main tourist sights of Buenos Aires. That said, this hotel is not far (may be 10-15 minutes walk) from the Subte (the metro), which will take you directly into the Microcentro. A cab ride into the center will cost around USD$10 (with traffic). And you can always try the adventure of navigating Buenos Aires's colectivo (bus) system for a mere ARP$2. Palermo Soho itself is a safe and pleasant neighborhood filled with shops, restaurants and bars and is worth exploring. It has some fantastic bookshops, cafes and galleries.
All in all, definitely would recommend this hotel.
