"Excellent boutique gem in the middle of Palermo"
The Hotel Krista is a wonderful location for exploring the Palermo area. There are many restaurants and bars in the surrounding blocks, as well as a few shops and boutiques. It's entry is modest, just a door on the street, but inside the hotel features beautiful, clean, comfortable rooms, several different sitting and relaxing common areas, a jacuzzi (not open in Winter), breakfast, and extremely helpful staff. They use a system of buzzing people in so security is very tight. The decor is quite modern.
From the hotel, one can easily walk to eat, and there are numerous bus lines that can quickly take a visitor to the metro stations or other sights, and taxis are plentiful (although, that's true of pretty much anywhere in central BA). The nearest major area for sightseeing is the Parque Tres de Febrero, which is about a kilometer or so away and contains several gardens and fountains, the Botanical Garden and Japanese Garden and the Planetarium.
I stayed at Hotel Krista for three days at the end of my trip and really enjoyed it as a perfect, relaxing location to cap off my travels in Argentina.
