    A bit expensive for the size of rooms but maybe worth it for the quiet and location

    Very quiet in a nice and convenient location with many options to eat, drink, have a coffee. Staff were generally helpful and willing to help

    On my return stay the room I had upstairs wasn’t as spacious or well appointed as downstairs and I had a few problems with WiFi and getting the shower to work effectively.

    Great location with wonderful caring and helpful staff who were very happy to book city tours and Tango evenings. Tour providers and airport transfers extremely well organised with pick ups on time. We were able to leave a case of summer clothes there when we went down to the ANTARTICA. A huge bonus.

    Water pressure a little lacking in the shower.

    Staff friendly, interested and knowledgeable and spoke English. Although my wife is fluent the staff were keen to speak and use their Englush which made is a lot easier for me, as my Spanish is limited. Quirky and clean. Lots of good advice from all reception staff relating to the city, and our onward trip to Salta.. Good selection at breakfast. Hotel in a vibrant and safe area of the city.

    Breakfast wasn't as good as we remembered from previous visit; demand for payment in full upon arrival- the credit card I wanted to use had a system failure but they demanded immediate payment with another.

    The room and the bathroom were not big enough for two people but I guess this can not be changed thinking of the age of the building and its set up...

    Very nice well-preserved building from 1900s. Although we arrived earlier than the check-in time, the receptionist helped us and made sure that we get our room as soon as possible. All the receptionists were very kind and helpful, especially Alex 😊 They gave us recommendations for everything that we asked for, tango lessons etc. Breakfast was fine and the hotel was situated in Palermo Holywood, close to many bars and restaurants which was very convenient. Bed was comfortable, the decoration was nice, especially in the general areas. We loved the music that played at the reception at all times!

    Small bathroom needed refurbishment with a poor shower arrangement. Poor breakfast (however this seems to be common in Argentina). However, fundamentally, make sure you really want to be in Palermo before you consider booking. Hotel is over-priced for what it provides

    Excellent staff. Good sized room (described as a suite). Comfortable bed. Quiet. Small internal "courtyards" provided some feeling of space

    The weather was very hot during our stay, and the air conditioner seemed to take longer than usual to cool the room, but it did get comfortable.

    This property used to be a pretty lavish doctors house / office? probably in the 1920s. It now has been all redone and shows very nicely. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable about the local area, very willing to help organize Tango dinner / theatre or any other activities. They have 24hr reception. The property is located in a quiet and safe area on the edge of the Polermo district. Many cafes, restaurants, pubs etc are within easy walking distance

    Location tolerable
    • Leisure trip

    The room and bathroom were freezing cold because of defect central AC system. One staff member then told me that they usually cover the AC slots with paper sheets to keep the cold air out. Now it became boiling hot and mosquitos bothered me. I could not sleep either. I had to pay the 5 nights upon arrival. I had never slept so poorly in a relatively expensive hotel with a very low key shower room. The manager was aware of the situation and when my stay was finished, I have asked her to offer me something for the torture, but she said that she can do nothing, but offering another night for free. I had to move anyway and why would I suffer another night without sleep. The images on the Internet look a lot more grand than the place is in reality.
