          Good hotel for a hostel vibeThe hotel has a really great staff, great location and a good vibe. The room was very clean but the takeaway was more hostel quality. The lobby looks great but rooms could use an upgrade to match. The Agoda/Booking.com wasn’t clear that I was getting a shared bathroom room so mind the gap

          Exceptional!What a great little hotel, super stylish, yet not pretentious. Friendly staff. Clean, modern room, comfortable bed, quiet. The hotel is a former grand personal residence, so it's set up like a home, not a cookie cutter hotel box. It's an excellent value, too. The neighborhood is nice and safe, with several restaurants and cafes nearby. I highly recommend La Choza de Gascon for dinner.

          Very Nice Hotel”

          Hotel with Character, Friendly Staff, Pleasant Room

          This was the last hotel of my 3 week trip to Argentina. The manager asked me if I'd had any problems and I was very pleased to say, none. The double room was nice, clean, secure and quiet. No TV. The hotel had a lot of character and was also clean and tidy. The breakfast was good value at 60 Pesos, but I bought a cooked one at a near by restaurant. The location was acceptable, if nothing to shout about, eg. 40 minutes walk to Recoleta. When I departed to the airport, the staff saw me away from the hotel. I thought that very nice. Hotels in Buenos Aires are not cheap. This one was very good value for money though.

          Location - Stile - staff

          abbiamo soggiornato due notti in questo hotel non molto distante dalla Movida di Palermo. L'hotel è molto grazioso, ha uno stile di design moderno mescolato a qualche elemento vintage. Le stanze sono piccole ma accoglienti, purtroppo anche poco isolanti. Un'altra pecca è che il wifi funziona solo nella hall. Nel complesso però è stato un soggiorno soddisfacente.
