“Elegant, welcoming and still homey”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013 via mobile

After a lovely stay in one of the more basic rooms two years ago, we returned to the Legado Mitico and spurged on a deluxe room. We were lucky enough to stay in the Idealista room - the only room on the third floor. In addition to the spacious room, the Idealista has a private rooftop terrace. The bathroom was also spacious with double sinks.
One of the features that sets the Legado Mitico apart is the beautiful and comfortable library that serves as a common room. It's a perfect place to relax with a complimentary glass of wine. If one ventures to the back garden, Malevo, an exquisite and friendly Siamese cat, will be happy to accept your scratches, pats and general adulation. The human staff members are friendly, helpful but avoid hovering.
Strongly recommended!

Stayed August 2013, traveled with family

Slick, comfortable, atmospheric, great attention to detail, unobtrusive genuine service, it felt secluded and special whilst being in central and lively location. The themed rooms are evocative of times gone by without being crass or cheesy. Exceeded all expectations !

This place breathes Buenos Aires, period. The name Legado Mitico literally translates to "Mythical Legend", and what place draws the hearts and minds of people the world over, than the legends and myths of Argentina. From Che Guevara, the Idealist Revolutionary, Evita Peron - the Passionate First Lady, Jorge Luis Borges - the Intelligent & Imaginative writer...to the myth of the Argentine Cowboy, or the Gaucho. Legado Mitico designed each room into such detail, bring to life the above and many more mythical legends of their countries checkered past, the owners envelope each room with books, paintings, and other novelties that create a shrine to the character and spirit of these legends.

The hotel is located right in the heart of Palermo, away from the traffic and noisy streets of Buenos Aires, tucked away near Plaza Armenia. Here in Palermo, just a stones throw away from the hotel you'll find restaurants of every taste, local shopping venues with all of the finest fashion in BA. It's safe, it's walkable, and you'll find nothing less than a unique experience both visiting BA, especially if you have the opportunity to visit BA and spend a good 4 or 5 days...there's no other way to experience it.

I work for a a travel agency CAT Travel, based in Buenos Aires, we build personalized travel itineraries throughout South America...which means I have the opportunity to choose any hotel in BA for our luxury class travelers. I always recommend this hotel, and it's our first option for those looking for a luxury boutique experience. There's a wide range of hotels in this big city, but if you want to see a different side of Buenos Aires, remove yourself from the busy downtown buzz of traffic, and get personal staying here in Palermo...the Legado Mitico is the essence of everything whispered through the years about Argentina. It is a true example of when a hotel wraps itself around the ideas and spirit of the place in which it lives.

Room Tip: If you know or have heard of a legendary icon of Argentina, you can create a truly unique experience...

This is a small boutique hotel in a perfect location. The area around the hotel is full of shops, restaurants, and places to explore. The rooms are quiet and the staff was really helpful with anything we needed. The breakfast could be improved but didn't take away from the overall experience.

This hotel is simply gorgeous. The whole thing feels like each piece was a special item, selected for a personal collection rather than furnishings to fill a hotel. I absolutely love that each room has its own unique dedication to someone from Argentina's history and that you can browse each place on the website before you book so you can pick the style that fits you. The details in the rooms, like pictures, fireplaces or antique trinkets will make you feel at home immediately. The lobby downstairs has wonderful little seating areas inside and out. It feels like the stately but cozy library you always wanted.

The location is ideal for visitors. The area has so many restaurants and boutique shops and surrounded by transportation options. On Saturdays, you'll find a wonderful market for locally made crafts or food one block away at Armenia and Costa Rica. Plaza Serrano offers another option for shopping all weekend and is only about 3 blocks away.

We offer this hotel at my agency, CAT Travel, and receive such great feedback from people all the time. We picked this hotel to add to our luxury list because of the personal touch, beautiful interiors, stellar reviews, excellent service and our own great personal experience with it. So happy we did! We only hear great things and now I have my special stay all picked out for when my mother visits. :)

A dozen or so rooms on three floors set in a largely residential area - felt like Notting Hill. Comfortable and felt like a Parisian flat, rooms are named after famous Argentines

Lovely open plan breakfast/bar/sitting room area.

Lots of great local bars and restaurants (no dining facilities here)

Ideally located for exploring the city on foot or by taxi, day trips to La Colonia in Uruguay (recommended) and getting a feel for tango city.

Excellent and elegant staff could not have been more helpful.

Lots of Brits transiting on to the Antarctic and the FALKLANDS (Rule Bittannia, God save the Queen) although we were tactful enough not to use the F word during our time in BA.

Room Tip: Ask for room not facing the street, it's noisy after midnight.
