“Simply wonderful”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

we felt welcomed and carefully looked after throughout our stay in this gem of a boutique hotel, and I would like to highly recommend it to anyone staying in BA for a couple of days.

+ wonderfully designed with a lot of attention to detail
+ fantastic location in the trendy heart of Palermo
+ great, friendly service throughout our stay
+ very nice breakfast room - no huge buffet but just right
+ excellent wireless connection
+ 15min taxi ride to domestic airport (Jorge Newbery)

Hint:
We did not know this before, unfortunately, but you will get a 10% discount for paying your room bill in cash.
If you pay cash in USD, the discount is even higher because the conversion rate is far better than the official one.

Improvement:
No minibar / kettle (though red wine on the room and nespresso in the hallway)

Room Tip: Try to get a superior room. Prices are just slightly higher but the rooms are much nicer.

I stayed with my wife and two year old at Krista Hotel Boutique for three nights. Krista is a small charming hotel with a lot of character. The choices for breakfast is limited, but just what you need - fresh orange juice, toast, yoghurt, fruit salad. If you have any special requests for breakfast, you can ask a day in advance and they arrange that. We had little knowledge about Buenos Aires but got great help from Alejandro at the front desk on how to plan our stay. Palermo is a great area, with many small little nice shops and cafes. Taxi is affordable and and it is easy to get around wherever you want in town. Would absolutely recommend this place.

Stayed for a couple of nights and found the staff really useful and the ambiance relaxing. It's not the absolute best hotel in BA but if you're looking for somewhere reasonably nice then this should be good for you. Try to get a room towards the back of the residence as the walls are reasonably thin.

From the outside the Krista does not look very appealing ! However ,once inside the decor is lovely with several quaint, quiet courtyards. Our superior room was very pleasant and quiet. Our only disturbance being the noise of stilletoed feet echoing as they went near our room. There is free Wi Fi and use of a terminal. The local neighbourhood was very good and we felt very safe. There were a lot of good restaraunts in the near vicinity within a couple of minutes walk.
However any visit into the centre will cost 40 to 50 pesos. If you go on a trip with "Expedicions" you will not be dropped off back at your hotel. This seems to be a common practice in Buenos Aires. The Manager/owner was extremely helpful and made many very good recommendations including Tango shows and local restaraunts. Would definitely stay at the Krista on any future visit.

Room Tip: Ask for a superior room or better

I booked Krista hotel for 3d/2n from 01/15/2013 thru 01/17/13 on hotwire.com (great deal) It is a great comfortable experience. The staff is very prompt answer emails before the trip. After arrived the airport, it took me total around half an hour to go through the custom, get some money exchange from banc there ($4.95 peso per $1 US, same official rate in the town) and booked the ticket to get on Manual Tien bus) It costs only $18 or $90 pesos (they take both us dollar and credit card) they drop me to the main station, then a small van (sit 4 people) transfer me to a place that is only 4 blocks away to the hotel. With a small luggage, it only took me around 5 minutes walk to the hotel. Once I arrived, I was upgraded to a better room. The room has beautiful name Afrodita. The decor of the room is dim and warm with orange color. The lamp cover has beautiful pattern that casts beautiful pattern once turn it on. They do have a very good free WiFi connection through out. It is quiet hotel. It seems like I am the only person in there since I am the only person in the breakfast area. very relax. I do have some trouble to use the shower. I think it is simply I do not know how to use it. Later on, there is no problem at all. Overall great value and stay there. Good location as well . It takes me around 20 minutes walk to plaza de italia. Overall, it is great value.

This hotel is a lovely historical house that has been converted with care and attention to a small boutique hotel. Good central location in Palermo Hollywood. T This was a nice oasis in the heart of the city with the outdoor courtyard. What sets this place apart is the helpful staff -- I found them to be very informative and helpful with questions and logistics In fact, I tried to book a ferry and there were some issues with the booking -- they assisted me in getting a refund when a return ticket could not be obtained Very much above and beyond service from Alejandro.

Great place to stay in BA. Quaint boutique hotel and amazing friendly and helpful staff. My friend and i were disappointed when we booked an estancia stay which fell through last minute and the staff at krista went out of their way to help us organise a replacement and saved the day! Very well located. we would highly reccomend this hotel.
