Great attentive hosts. Comfortable rooms. Quiet setting but very close to the authentic atmosphere of San Telmo with good bars and restaurants Having stayed here about 10 times you might think we like it. We don't! We LOVE it!

The hotel is a charming period property, and every guest room has a different style. I stayed in 'Industrial' - with lots of metal and bare brick. Really nice. The hotel has a dance studio in the basement, which...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to Mundo Bolivar, Mundo Bolivar is a classic mansion of 1901 that was totally renovated back in 2006. Mundo Bolivar S.A. bought the house in July 2012 with the idea and dream to create a guesthouse and culture club under the same roof. We work and live in the house, and we are looking forward to create an excellent experience for our visitors and guests, with a warm personal, and professional atmosphere in this small world called "Mundo Bolivar". We welcome travelers, tango dancers, students, artist, and good people from all over the world who wants to enjoy Buenos Aires. We hope you will enjoy our home, as if it were your own, and that you will treat it with the same respect and care as you do for your own home. If you need help to plan a "Buenos Aires day" feel free to come in for a coffee - and let us share our "Buenos Aires Querido" with you. We hope you enjoy your visit, and please do not hesitate to contact us with any question you might have. For evening dining, and for the weekends we recommend that you try Parilla 1880 on Defensa 1665, el Vulcano on Bolivar or one of 4 very good restaurants on Avenida Caseros - all of these just a 5 minute walk from Mundo Bolivar Mundo Bolivar. ... more   less
