Staff is very helpfull. Location in Palermo Viejo is perfect, everything within walking distance. Big plus! The rooms were clean, that said, upstairs is better than downstairs (we stayed in three different rooms). Great patio in the back, and the interior design is nice and attractive. Wifi could be better though, also the mattrasses.

Recently stayed a week at Livian Guesthouse while visiting my daughter - loved it. Super friendly staff, great location on the south edge of Palermo, clean, comfortable, etc. Place really reminded me of that first cool apartment you wanted to have when you first moved to a big city and were totally hip with the world. If you're looking for...

I was part of a group of 5 travellers from New Zealand in mid 20's, backpacking through Buenos. An excellent stay. Just a beautiful guesthouse, full of character, with some lovely artwork adorning the walls. The staff were particularly helpful and well co-ordinated (much thanks to Tomas). Easy taxis from the airport (the guesthouse organised these perfectly and at short...

We stayed here for three nights at the start of our trip and two nights at the end of our trip to Argentina - and it really did feel like coming home. The guest house has a shabby chic thing going on - it's a charming, old house in Palermo, and each of the rooms is distinct. Huge bonuses included...

We stayed just one night on the way home from Antarctica. We had the "kiss" room which features a huge copy of the Klimt painting. The decor is eclectic to say the least, with lots of pictures and ornaments throughout the house. The proprietress was friendly and helped us to try and book a restaurant for that evening.

Staying in Palermo

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.
