I went on a school trip to visit Buenos Aires. The area, Palermo, was amazing. It was very pretty, and you could tell it was in the wealthier part of Buenos Aires. It was a block away from a huge park which was fun. The rooms were average, but we didn't spend much time in them anyway. The pool was...

We enjoyed this hotel and loved our time in BA. Our double bedroom apartment was OK, it had a nice foyer and the breakfast was fine. With a long walk we could get to some really good restaurants (usually we would taxi there and walk home). The staff at reception were very helpful.

Located in what I consider the most tranquil and interesting part of Palermo (5 minutes walking to the Bosques of Palermo and to Palermo subway station and about 10 minutes walking to the Palermo Soho and Palermo Hollywood).

Good price. Convenient acess by car and walking. It is closed to subway Palermo Station, about 1,5 km. The apartment has living room (with kitchen) and bedroom, but antiquated. The spring-mattress is too soft. The shawer is over the bathtub. There is only one air-conditioning equipment for the two ambients, and this is not enough. The buffet breakfast was not...

I was very satisfied with the hotel. Great location, clean, good attention and a fair price. The building is a little bit old but is in good condition. The rooms are quite big and have a kitchen attached to it. Would deff recommend it if you want to avoid eating out everyday and would like to do your own cooking.

The hotel was booked by the organizers of a medical congress. It is situated in Palermo, a lively neighbourhood with lots of bars and restaurants. The lobby made a welcoming impression and the staff at the front desk was very friendly. After exiting from the elevator you think you are in another hotel. The carpet on the stairs is partly...

Neighbourhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighbourhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favourite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
