Stayed there in early September so it was fairly empty but staff was incredibly helpful and warm. They provided great recommendations of places to go and made travel much easier. Staff also gave us a glass of wine while we waited for a taxi to the airport which they called for us. Highly recommend this place especially if traveling with...

Upon arrival, I could not connect to the internet in the courtyard room. The manager was quick to come up and check and had a gentleman from maintenance...

I am a US citizen, but I endeavor to leave my country as much as possible for vacation. In summary, I see a lot of hotels. This was one of my favorites. For the rate I paid, it is actually #1 on my list of top hotels for the price/amenities. Sure, the Grand Hotel in Stockholm is awesome, but it's...

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel multiple times throughout our semester in Buenos Aires. We loved every room we stayed in and couldn't have been happier with the service.

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
