“Feels Like Home”
Reviewed July 31, 2014

My friends and I stayed here for 4 nights in July and it was great. The hotel feels like a classic, elegant home. The location is in a neighborhood setting with several excellent dining options nearby. The staff was extremely nice and helpful, and they were very accommodating to my friend who was sick a with a harsh cold. The breakfast (a beautiful spread of breads, jams, cold-cuts, and eggs-on-request) was delicious and so lovely to wake up to. The hotel can stand on its own, but what really makes this place a standout is the kind and generous staff. I miss them already.

Room Tip: If you can, splurge a little and go for a deluxe room.

I am normally more addict of modern hotels, where you are sure to find standard quality.
The Krysta Hotel had been boked by my company for a business trip and it was a real good surprise to me!
The rooms and the hotel itself are very nicely decorated, it's very calm, the olfactive ambiance is wonderful and helps to feel confortable and just like "at home".
There is the possibility to get (for free) the breakfast in the room. You have free wifi. Palermo is the right place to stay because there are a lot of restaurants and bars few meters away from the hotel, so you don't need a car at night to go out.
The people in Krysta Hotel were really helpful, the service level was very good.

My husband and I were very happy with our three nights here. We had the most contact with the night concierge, Alejandro, who was attentive and helpful to our needs and questions. Breakfasts were plentiful and of high quality. The one thing that caused a little bit of inconvenience was the lack of shelf/counter space in the bathroom, but the safety and security we felt here more than made up for it. We would stay at Krista Hotel Boutique again.

We stayed at the Krista hotel for 3 days in March. The hotel is attractive and definitely qualifies as a boutique hotel - nice design, colonial building, good sheets. The deluxe room looking over the back garden however pushes the boutique factor a little much - it is really small. The bathroom is also very basic, clean but no design factor there which there should be as part of a boutique hotel experience is a good bathroom. Breakfast is fine but nothing special.
I would recommend this place as the location is good, the staff friendly and the design pleasing (particularly if you don't want to go for the popular alternative of uber minimalist design), but it doesn't go above and beyond that, which makes the value for money go down in my opinion a little.

Room Tip: Deluxe room is small so not sure what the basic room looks like!

Dear guest,

Thank you for your sharing your review with the TripAdvisor community.

We are very pleased that you appreciated the hotel location, decorative aspects and the friendliness of our staff, all of them acclaimed with beuatiful comments posted by other guests.

The hotel is placed in a privileged area, in a bohemian and charming neighbourhood, surrounded by very good restaurants and boutiques of Argentine designers.

Krista came to be in a house of the early twentieth century with all the grace and charm of that age. The hotel has kept to the original layout of rooms giving on to patios, thus taking maximum advantage of sunlight for all its rooms. The furniture chandeliers and stylish decor also contribute to a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

Regarding the bathroom decoration and ammenities, we acknowledge your appreciation and we regret that it did not meet your requirements. The spirit of our hotel is a simple luxury, paying special attention to other aspects that highlights our standard of service.

Our buffet breakfast, as you mention simple, meets all requirements needed for a good start: just squeezed orange juice, fresh fruit salad, croissants, puddin, cookies, bread, jams & butter, yogurt, cereals, ham and cheese, american and Nespresso coffee, assorted teas, milk, eggs made to the order and everything our guest needs to meet any special diet request, served in our lounge, or in your room or courtyards at n additional cost.

Once again thank you for your feedback.

Cordially,

Cristina Marsden

This is a very pretty hotel in the Palermo district. It has many original features and was the home of Peron's doctor apparently. Our room was off a peaceful courtyard and was quiet and clean. Room service was excellent and discreet. The manager was extremely helpful at all times. There is wifi in the rooms and a PC in the lobby. A coffee maker is available at all times and the breakfasts were delicious. The Palermo district is very colourful and interesting - a great place to explore. We would recommend Don Julio for beef and Malbec and OMM just round the corner for vegetarian bites and cocktails. The hotel is quite a walk from the main tourist attractions and the metro. It is not a problem if you are happy to use taxis.

Room Tip: Our room was very close to the lobby and we could hear conversations very clearly. Fortunately they...

Krista is a charming, well kept, old hotel within walking distance of many excellent restaurants. We spent 11 nights there and traveled around the city easily and happily. The staff is friendly and attentive. Breakfasts are ample and healthy. The spa is a restful spot for relaxing between sight seeing and dinner. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will return when we are back in BA.

We recently spent 11 nights at this elegant oasis of calm in B.A. and loved everything about our stay. The staff are wonderful and accommodating, the hotel facilities are fabulous, and located in the best location for restaurants and nightlife. Krista staff made sure all our needs were catered for and we loved the personal service - it enhanced our visit to the the fantastic city of B.A. The Krista was our home away from home. Thanks to the wonderful staff- we loved our stay and hope to be back soon!
