Stayed here for a couple of days. Nice ambience - very relaxed. Nice wee pool. Great location. And San Telmo is super cool. Special mention for Andrea. Back in BA in a week and will definitely look to stay here again.

Location great and staff were generally nice. However, room was tiny and basic, walls are thin and it lacks the personal touch. A good base, but nothing out of the ordinary. The breakfast was decent, but you need to get there early as they run...More

San Telmo
Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San
