"Excellent staff & Location"
Cannot speak highly enough of friendly and professional staff, Gerald and Vikki, who made me most welcome. Only stayed one night in transit from Dublin to Ushuaia, but would like to have stayed a week. Bedroom fine if a little noisy as it's directly out on the street. Very relaxing sn deck with jacuzzi and garden at the rear, an oasis of tranquillity. Location great with numerous quality restaurants on your doorstep.Palermo a lovely neighbourhood of old style Buenos Aires.
"A very nice place for a stopover near Aeroparque"
It seems that some architect worked hard (and successfully!) to create an agreeable ambiance. True, the rooms are rather small (Obut there is office space downstairs) and the old-fashioned keys are a challenge - but they are also quite charming! The space reserved for breakfast naturally transforms itself intoi a living room with books, magazines, fireplace and a TV which is not left on permanently. All sorts of little surprises which show the care in the décor make this small and quaint hotel a placewhich, besides being a very attractive hotel is in the midst of a series of good retaurants and less than 15 minuites away from Aeroparque (by taxi|), Sure it's convenient, but it is also nice. Something very important in making it nice is que staff's attitude: attentive, efficient, good humored and going out of their way to help you out in any difficulty.
"Lovely small hotel!"
What a lovely hotel in the heart of Las Cañitas neighborhood. This small three story building is tastefully decorated, mixing modern and Louis XVI furnishing. The garden and terrace, full of manicured fruit trees and plants are the perfect places to relax or read a book. We stayed for one night at the suite overlooking the inner garden and we loved it. The black out curtains allowed us to sleep in a complete dark. The continental breakfast we chose was fresh and tasty. The staff, including the owner who checked us out on a Sunday morning, were very friendly and affective. I really recommend this cozy, clean and well located hotel!
"Great location, very cozy and warm"
We stayed at the suite for one night, and we loved this little hotel! It is very cozy, staff (and the owner herself, who was there that morning) are very friendly and accomodating. All the advantages of a small hotel,cwith the cleanliness and style of a large one. Location is at the heart of trendy Las Cañitas neghborhood, with restaurants and bars all over the place. Very nearby also to Palermo, the other "it" place in Buenos Aires. Highly reccomend it!
"Quaint, Clean, and Pleasant"
I stayed in this hotel for just under a week. The purpose of my trip was mostly business, though I tacked on a weekend stay because it was my first time in Buenos Aires. The hotel is located on a vibrant street in the Las Canitas barrio, which is quite close to Palermo. To be honest, I vacillated between 3 and 4 stars and ultimately decided upon 4 because 3 seemed like it might be punitive in nature, which it is not. Please, gentle reader, continue so that you can make an informed decision of the positive and negative aspects of the hotel: I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. The primary reason for staying here was a recommendation from a co-worker, and was based upon proximity to work and quality of the place. If you want to stay in/near Las Canitas (near Palermo) put this on your list. The quality of the personal service is exceptional. I booked directly online and shortly received an email. It wasn't a confirmation; it was a "hey, we have a special. Better room, free breakfast, and *less money per night*. Let us know if you'd like us to switch you." Who does this' They do (and, yes, I took advantage of it). From when I arrived until I left the staff did everything possible to be charming and helpful without being intrusive or annoying. The staff made relevant and useful recommendations and provided help when necessary. There is always someone staffed at the front (24x7) and the front door is bolted; everyone must be buzzed in/out. The entire hotel is meticulously clean. Seriously, this has got to be one of the cleanest places I've ever stayed. It's also very quiet, though on the weekend the street noise does come through a touch. The decor is minimalist, and a kind of intersection between antique/colonial with a contemporary hotel scheme. Think antique furniture either left dark wood or painted cream. There is a nicely landscaped outdoor patio (including a gorgeous lemon tree). The hotel has multiple floors; I do not think they have an elevator. Staff was willing to assist with luggage if needed. My room was a deluxe room. I found it to have plenty of space, and most importantly, plenty of storage. The actual finishings were minimal but functional. There was an individual mini-split for temperature control. The mini-split worked fine, but was noisy in a way that was disturbing (rather than a constant background noise, it would intermittently click or whirr). I was thankful I travel with a portable speaker to play white noise while I sleep, or it would have woken me up intermittently. The bathroom is small in comparison to the room size, and not terribly well appointed. There is a bidet that looks like something out of a David Cronenberg film and as a guy I was more comfortable leaving it unused in its default position than attempting to configure and utilize. The shower setup is one of the hand-held hoses and like virtually all hotels who have them installed, the water on/off knob extends into the usable shower space. I was constantly knocking it, making the water freezing/scorching/off. Why places don't install a different configuration when the hand-held virtually ensures that the water stream is going to fall this close to the mechanism is beyond me. The shower configuration is also such that it's difficult not to get water into the main part of the floor. The hotel provides minimal toiletries (shampoo, bar soap, shower cap) that seemed adequate but nothing I'd want to take a spare home. The bed was reasonably comfortable. It's winter, and the combination of cold air & mini-split means maintaining a good temperature can be a bit challenging. I tend to like to sleep in a colder room with blankets; the supplemental blankets (there were two) weren't terribly great. So while the bed was fine, the bedding could stand to be better. Wi-Fi is included and tended to work nicely. The hotel didn't seem terribly busy so I'm not sure how it holds up "under load". Breakfast was kind of mediocre. There is a small table with fresh fruit, two dry cereals, some pink milk concoction that I believe was kefir, sliced sandwich bread, sweet croissants, ham and cheese slices, dulce de lech, jam, and butter. The staff also would cook scrambled eggs to order. Sufficient, but nothing to get excited about. The hotel sits in the center of the action in the neighborhood. There are plenty of good restaurants, bars, and coffee shop. The metro station is just a few blocks away, and an easy walk. I didn't find much shopping in terms of local goods, but with the metro so convenient you can zip around most anywhere. Taxis are plentiful and easy to hail. Read online about taxis in Buenos Aires; most of the cautions aren't over zealous. Uber is just getting started and I had great success when drivers were available, and at about 60% of the price of a taxi. To sum up, this is a quaint and nice place. It bills itself as a luxury boutique hotel, and my opinion is that it doesn't quite hit the target of luxury. That's more a function of infrastructure items, and not a comment on the service or how functional or pleasant the place is.
