This isn't the Ritz, but a very friendly B and B type house run by people who will bend over backwards to make your stay enjoyable. It's within walking distance to the great Viejo Palermo neighbourhood and close by buses to central BA.

We stayed here with our 1 1/2 year old daughter and two dogs and have yet to find a hotel in Argentina that made us feel so at home. The room was big and the outside area was great for all of us, we even ordered out dinner and dined on the upstairs patio- it was just like home. The staff was great and breakfast was comfortable. Since it is a house, you have to consider that you can hear other guests walking down the halls and it is definitely a shared living feeling. The only aspect that wasn't excellent was the location, it isn't the best walking environment situated within busy streets and in a business district. That's just for our situation with dogs and a child, it might be ideal for other travelers. We will put the Livian Guesthouse at the top of our list when we travel through Buenos Aires.

The Livian Guesthouse is quite simply amazing. As soon as you arrive you are made to feel at home by the girls on reception who were brilliant throughout our stay. On arrival we was upgraded to one of the superior rooms of the hotel which was absolutely brilliant. The whole atmosphere of the hotel is extremly laid back which in contrast to the busy streets of BA is just what you need. The only bad bit about the hotel is having to leave it behind :-(

Thank you for an amazing stay.

We ended up staying here for 10 nights because it was so comfortable and homely. The owner and staff are all very nice and helpful. Rooms and the house itself has lots of character. Each room has its own style. Breakfast is decent also. We enjoyed relaxing in the living room. Showers are powerful and hot and beds are comfortable. The heating was good during the colder days!
The main Palermo shopping area is 7 to 10 minute walk away and nearest metro/subway is 10 minutes walk. Great place to stay!

Hi all, I enjoyed my stay in Livian. The stuff is lovely, very private, helpful and you feel like at home. I stayed alone because my son was studying there for half a year. Metro station is about a 10 minute walk, the buses are leaving in front of the house going downtown to Micro etc.Every room has a different style and colour.the cheaper rooms do not have a window going outside but the beautiful garden area makes up for it or you book a room with an outgoing window.No TV is disturbing the rest. Very often I was just sitting outside reading, on a couch, lying down. An ideal place to spend between seeing the city and the area around. I met very nice people from everywhere.

Room Tip: Just choose a indoor room (cheaper) , or a room with an outdoor window.

We absolutely loved our time at Livian. Each room of the converted house was so full of charm and style (especially The Kiss!), common areas were beautiful with many sweet touches (piano in lounge, soft classical music playing in the kitchen, etc.) breakfast simple but lovely. Staff always around and helpful. We will recommend Livian Guesthouse to anyone we know going to Buenos Aires- It was simply wonderful!

Room Tip: The Kiss room is very romantic!
