I hate gratuitous hyperbole, though boutique hotels do rank with electricity and the human genome as a defining advance in civilisation. Establishments like Legado Mitico compete on that commercial knife-edge of limited accommodation, by cosseting a discerning international clientele. The place is small, only 11 rooms, freshly and beautifully decorated in the Ralph Lauren style of faux English gentleman’s club; lots of peaceful putty green and books on dark wood shelving, but with that twist of Tango you'ld expect. Each bedroom is themed, ours after Carlos Gardel, the legendary chain smoking 1920’s Tango star whom we had never heard of. Monochrome photos of this brylcreemed smoothie, as famous as Byng and Piaf, were everywhere. The room was thoughtfully comfortable, with drifts of fluffy white towels and fragrantly expensive gels in the bathroom. No doubt the other rooms are equally original and just as restful.
The service from the moment we booked was welcoming; all our questions answered and whims pampered for the five days we spent in BA. I even received a lesson from the concierge in how to savour a calabash of tongue scorching mate, through a silver straw. As national pastimes go, it’s right up there with Morris dancing.
For surfers there is free wifi, but the tango music in the spacious 'library', is tiresome if you are trying to read after the day’s foray. All piped music is musak whatever the rhythm or cultural relevance, if its wall to wall. There is only so much vibrato glissando you can take. Breakfast was a bit sparse, possibly because I asked for Evitabix. (No I didn’t really).
BA is not the world’s favourite city, its vast, teeming, polluted and run down, but the location of the Legado Mitico in Palermo Soho, is ideal. It has something of London’s Portobello about it; a bit boho, low rise, tree lined, and lots of boutiques and cafes. There is even a milonga nearby where for 15 pesos you can glide your amor around the dancefloor till dawn. And I am reliably informed by my expert that the nail bar across the street is the home of the perfect manicure, which is a comfort. All in all we really liked the Legado Mitico and would stay there again.

Tourist Cautions: If you are quoted US dollars for anything ( a tour, a Tango show), you are probably being ripped off.

we stayed three nights here from april 16th. we loved the large room and stylish design features. the area is good for shopping, restaurants and bars. the staff are very helpfull and friendly. this hotel was just up our street as we like the more personal approach, taxis are cheap so we found it much nicer to be in this area with good access to the more central areas but in a charming location. would recommend to anyone if you like boutique style hotels

three nights in a most welcome boutique hotel. Rooms are large and comfortable.
The staff was fabulous....assisted us with every request, and went above and beyond when needed....we had the Che room with our private rooftop relaxing area.
Need to like to walk to get to the main areas or be adventurous and use the subway.

Will be staying here again soon!

The hotel is in the Palermo Soho area - so a 20min subway or taxi ride from the centre of town. But its a lovely quiet area to stay in. There are great cafes and restaurants. Recommended are: Freud and Fahler just 3 mins down the street - expensive by BA standards but an amazing meal. The hotel has a jacuzzi on the roof, great space for breakfast and a quiet library with an open terrace. Friendly and helpful staff.

I just spent 3 nights at Legado Mitico, and had a very positive experience. The hotel is right in the center of Palermo Viejo, which is the best neighborhood for dining and shopping. It's an ideal location for exploring the trendy part of Buenos Aires.

We had a beautiful room, one of the more expensive Deluxe. It was a very good size, and had a wonderful bathroom, including a whirlpool bath. Everything was very stylish and comfortable, with luxurious touches like robes, lovely toiletries etc. The only thing missing was a working clock- we had 3 vintage clocks in the room but they were only there as a style statement and didn't work.

The staff was pleasant and unobtrusive, but it's not one of those places where they'll fuss over you. That was fine with us as we're pretty low-maintenance, but some travelers might need a little more TLC.

I loved this hotel but have a few minor issues:

a- the coffee at breakfast was weak (I found that to be the case throughout Argentina); otherwise breakfast was delicious and nicely served.

b-the room was a bit loud- you could hear other guests in the hallway. The plumbing is also loud. It didn't keep us from sleeping well and enjoying our stay, nonetheless it is an issue for a small, luxury property.

c-the internet connection was really slow.

c- the rooms in the lower categories seemed a bit small for the price. Not really worth it in my opinion unless you can splurge and get a Deluxe.
