This is a cute little hotel that faces Plaza Dorrego. I read that Sundays are good days to visit the Feria (street market) of San Telmo and see tango in the plaza. Since we were arriving on Sunday, I found this hotel a perfect location for our 1st day in BA.

We had 2 twin beds in Room 101, right over the hotel main door and sign. Three windows looked out on Plaza Dorrego. It was fun to sit in our room and enjoy the hubbub of Sundays, ranging from flea market attendants to samba drivers to the evening tango at Plaza Dorrego. The only problem was that the window right next to my bed could not be fully closed! After hours of enjoying the hubbub, I could not 'turn it off'. The music went on until past 11 pm but I fell asleep anyway. The next morning, I didn't wake up until after 8 am. The music had been replaced by the mechanical sound of street cleaning.

The room was small but comfortable. The beds were small but apparently comfortable. I slept well for the first time in a week in South America!

Our 7 am arrival caused Fabian to wake up and let us in. Our room was not ready until the afternoon but we enjoyed a delicious bfast at nearby Café La Poesia (highly recommend the omelette set). Through Booking.com, our room cost 88 usd inclu tax and continental bfast. Fabian (night time clerk) and his female counterpart are friendly and spoke good English.

Some great food places to visit include:
Nuestra Parilla (aka Lo de Freddy), on the side of Mercado San Telmo for the best Choripan!
Café Havanna, next to the hotel, for coffee and Alfajores.
Café La Poesia, for a drink or breakfast.

Small and modern boutique hotel in front of Plaza Dorrego, San Telmo. We stayed on an internal, loft-style room: wardrobe, bathroom & sofa-bed in the first floor, queen bed & TV in the second floor, connected by a wooden staircase. Very clean and with a friendly staff. Good Argentine-style breakfast: coffee, milk, orange (not natural) juice, yoghurt, cereals, white & brown sliced bread, croissants, butter, cheese, "dulce de leche" & jam. We could left our luggage before check-in and after check-out (but the suitcases were left just in the frontdesk, with a small piece of sheet indicating our names). Take in account that during Sundays and holidays the surrounding streets are closed to cars, leaving them only for the flea market and pedestrians (maybe you'll have to walk a couple of blocks to get a cab).

Room Tip: The double rooms are loft-style, so you should be able of climbing a staircase.

The hotel is located in the heart of San Telmo, Plaza Dorrego. While you are staying here check out the rooftop terrace; it is very nice, quiet and you get to see Plaza Dorrego from a different perspective.

The guys running the hotel are extremely nice and friendly they went above and beyond to help us with everything we needed, they even shared "mate" with us which was a unique experience for me, I learned a lot about Mate and what it means for Argentinians.

My only suggestion to the hotel management is that they need to fix the hot water problem. Other than that the hotel is flawless. I would definitely stay here again.

The front balcony is perfect for watching the flee market on a Sunday and the Tango during the day. The staff were very helpful, beyond our expectations. The bed was extremely comfortable. Delicious pastries for breakfast. Just don't try to relax on the sunbeds on the roof terrace - they collapse.
Fabulous location to enjoy the cafes and night life.

Room Tip: We loved the room at the front with a balcony. It wasn't noisy when the windows were shut. We had room 101.

we arrived very early, our room was not ready but we were offered a coffee with sweet bun, so we could relax after long travel. Room was very clean and nice arranged, breakfast standard but tasty. Location is perfect! The surrounding cobblestone roads give a feeling of old days of Buenos. On the opposite square you can sit with a beer or wine and admire tango dancers (tips appreciated). A roof terrace is a good idea, with cozy chairs - a good place to relax in the evening. On Sunday a colorful market is arranged on the oppposite square and nearby streets. Wifi working well. In total - very good value for money, Definately suggest!!!!!

Room Tip: if you do not sleep deep do not take street side room on weekends
