    Fabulous

    The staff was very kind, due to a rescheduling because of inconvinences in the flights, I arrived extra early and had no problem with gettingathe room as soon as I got there. If you want to go to Buenos Aires but dont like the hustle and bustle of the city centre, this hotel is near all the places but in a quiet neighborhood.

    Very quiet and peaceful. Beatiful place i guess for the summer. Would like to return during the summer to enjoy the outside part.

    A good idea would be to have a mini fridge inside the room and I didnt like the idea about not having a door to separate the room and the toilete. There is no privacy

    Superb

    Stylish, secure hotel an inexpensive bar and friendly staff. In a nice area. It's also gay friendly.

    Breakfast was a little basic could do with some fresh fruit.

    Superb

    Great comfortable hotel with a very helpful staff. Clean, cool design and It's right in Palermo.

    Breakfast not included and a bit basic, but the neighborhood has great options for breakfast too. Because of the lay out of the hotel some rooms can get a little bit noisy if there are a lot of people in the lobby. But this only happened once during our 3 day stay.
