My husband and I stayed for the better part of a week in BA. Mundo Bolivar was amazing - all the rooms have different themes, in a gorgeous restored mansion in a fashionable (yet not overcrowded) part of town. As other reviews mention, the place was spotless; complimentary coffee and helpful recs from the owners; they give you access to...

This place is very well situated in leafy San Telmo, close to the Sunday market and near a beautiful park. The old building has been tastefully renovated and decorated to provide comfortable and affordable apartment accomodation. For dancers there is a dance studio down stairs for practice. Last but not least, the hosts are very friendly and helpful.

The hotel is located in a reasonably quiet street in San Telmo and there are many useful shops and amenities within short walking distance (for example, restaurants, bars, cafes, laundry, groceries). This includes the delightful Parque Lezama, a park visited by many local families. I found it a nice place to sit and relax. I liked the old wooden joinery...

I had the "art deco" apartment. Nicely done, big doors onto balcony overlooking the street. The fridge either freezes everything or isn't cold enough, thermostat probably playing up. Apart from that everything great. Staff are nice and helpful and the neighbourhood is nice, plenty of great eateries close by, Parque Lezama one block away.

Accommodating host and hostes helped me with local travel plans. This neighbourhood that bordered on San Telmo and La Boca was both safe and inexpensive. Day trips from this neighbourhood into buenos aires and Laplatta and beyond to the countryside were also easy to plan because of their location.

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
