Vain is in a very convenient area in Palermo, they have a great breakfast and a nice rooftop area. They were extremely helpful and even found a place for me to play tennis. Great value and clean, clean, clean.

We recently had 5 nights at this hotel and really enjoyed our stay. The hotel is well located in Palermo, with lots of cafes, bars and restaurants you can walk to easily. The hotel is vibrant with comfortable common areas to use. The breakfast was great with plenty of choices and good service, but the standout is really the staff,...

Wow - what a great hotel! The renovations of an old building were top notch and we enjoyed the charm of an old building with modern comfort and conveniences. But what makes Vain a gem is the service.

I loved everything about this hotel. The rooms were stylish, the breakfasts were delicious, and everyone at reception was incredibly helpful. The location is within walking distance of great restaurants and bars, and it was good value for money too. I speak not in vain.

Comfortable with an unusual layout. Staff is helpful and friendly. The location is in a nice residential area with restaurants nearby.

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in the heart of Palermo Viejo neighborhood, only 15 minutes away from the main tourist attractions, VAIN Boutique Hotel gives the possibility of having another alternative to the noisy BA downtown. It preserves the "Porteno" neighborhood feeling, combined with a bohemian and avant-garde mixture that can be sensed in the variety of stores, from fashion designers, antique and design furniture to coffee shops, fashion restaurants and bars, along with the traditional ones. ... more   less
