I can't speak highly enough of this hotel. If you are looking to spend time in Buenos Aires where you feel you are part of a local neighbourhood, then this is the place. It is also ideally located for the greener areas of the city, where everyone does all their exercise. If you want to be more central to the city then this is maybe not where you would want to be, but having said that, the Subte (underground) stop is only a 10 minute walk away and very easy to use, and cabs are not expensive. I walk a lot and thought nothing of walking into the centre in around 90 minutes or so.
The main thing that makes the stay such an enjoyable one, is the staff. They are all incredibly friendly but special mention has to go to the English (and French) speaking Nathan and Leonardo. Anything you need to know or organise, they will do it for you and give you little apperitifs or coffees free of charge at any time. They are also happy to chat with you for hours on end! I was genuinely upset to be leaving after my 2 weeks.
We really liked the hotel overall. It's very contemporary, hip. Beautiful public spaces. Nice bathrooms. The only complaint would be space. The rooms are tiny. We had a standard room so maybe the other rooms are a bit bigger. It is in the middle of restaurants and bars but we never heard the noise in our rooms. Don't forget that people are out until 6am partying in Buenos Aires!

Our stay at the hotel was great. The rooms were spacious and classy in appearance. The beds were very comfortable. The location was great, being close enough to Palermo - 3 de Febrero Park and the zoo, planetarium, and of course the Hippodrome. The area around the hotel was safe, with a super mercado/market near by and pharmacy and assorted shops. And the staff was very helpful and friendly, all hours of the night and day. I would definitely recommend this place to others and look forward to our family using this hotel again.
I was pleasantly surprised with this place after reading some of the reviews. The place is a little dated but it's clean and the staff were friendly and some spoke English. Short taxi ride to the airport makes it very convenient if you have an early morning flight.
