“Lovely boutique hotel in Soho Palermo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013 via mobile

we stayed three nights and were upgraded to a better room containing jacuzzi. breakfast was excellent and varied foods in a lovely setting. Dinner was excellent food, beautifully prepared, and good value. Miguel at reception went above and beyond in helpfulness.

it would be helpful if hotel had readily available maps and tourist brochures.

This was our first stay at this hotel and in the Palermo area. We loved the hotel and the staff were incredible! They were all very helpful and a lot of fun. The hotel is in a very interesting neighborhood that is quite lively at night and fun to walk around in during the day - retail shops, tons of restaurants, weekend fair. I enjoyed staying at this hotel much more than the larger more well known chain hotels in Buenos Aires - Hilton, Marriott, Hyatt, etc. where we have stayed in the past. You get a much better price at the BoBo and the staff are just much more friendly and helpful and the room quality is just as good. I would definitely recommend the hotel. The only other thing you might want to consider is location - you have to take a cab to Recoleta, Puerto Madero, Florida street, etc. If your only consideration on your trip is staying near the more touristy parts of Bs As, you should be prepared for some cab rides (although it is not expensive). But then again, Palermo is a great neighborhood and should not be missed on your trip. On our next trip to Bs As, we will certainly stay here.

My husband and I traveled throughout South America and we stayed at Bobo during our visit to Buenos Aires. It was recommended by two of our friends who spoke very highly of them. This was the best hotel we stayed at during our entire vacation! The breakfasts were delicious, we ordered off a menu instead of selecting from a buffet (which is a nice change from the average hotel breakfast plan). We also had dinner one night in their restaurant and it was fantastic. Their location in Palermo was perfect, quiet but still very close to all the shops, restaurants, and metro. The service provided by Miguel at their front desk was exceptional, he recommended great places to eat that weren't too touristy, booked us an awesome tango show/dinner, and even made all of our reservations ahead of time. He went above and beyond to make our stay amazing. Convenient and safe location in the city, and a comfortable and clean stay make this a perfect boutique hotel to stay at a great destination!

We arrived early in the morning to Buenos Aires and the nice people at the Bobo escorted us right to our lovely suite. They were very gracious, helpful and kind during our two stays. The split level room was wonderful with great bed, tub and rain shower- also a perfect location.
we look forward to return to the Bobo on our next trip to Buenos Aires.

As previous guests have noted, the staff here at the Bobo are just excellent. Miguel, along with the other front desk employees all had "can't do enough for you" attitudes. My husband's wallet was stolen and they assisted us in making all the necessary connections. This hotel is centrally located in the Palmero SOJO area. If you can't find great restaurants and shopping you are just blind. The restaurant at the BOBO also serves an outstanding breakfast which was included in the rate. Anything off the menu and it was all fresh and delicous. Breakfast is as large as you want to make it. We could usually just skip lunch and have an afternoon gelado. Dinner at the Bobo is also a treat - especially if Jessica is your server. Food was excellent. Our room was large with a private outdoor patio which stayed shaded most the day.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back side would defintely be quieter than a front/street facing room

We have just completed a stay in Buenos Aires. The BoBo Hotel is such a nice friendly and central hotel. the rooms are well appointed. Miguel, the night manager deserves a special mention. Nothing is too much trouble for him - booking restaurants, organising transfers, pointing us in the right direction to the best little local cafe in town. This hotel is well worth the stay.

Room Tip: The deluxe rooms in the old section of the hotel are really nice.

We visited Argentina in November for a week and spent 4 days in Buenos Aires, the final two at the BoBo Hotel. I spent weeks looking into different parts of the city and different hotels and was drawn to the BoBo from the reviews on Trip Advisor. Our experience couldn't have been better. We had an amazing 2 tier room that was very open and comfortable. The staff was friendly and eager to assist us with all of our needs. Location was very convenient to the Metro as well as bars and restaurants. We were only a block or so from Don Julio and 2-3 blocks from multiple bars and restaurants. I have friends that will soon be traveling to Buenos Aires and have recommended they consider the BoBo.
