Could hear the traffic on the road and people talking/screaming all night. Not so good if you just want to get a good night's sleep.
Rooms are nice. Mine even had a balcony.
Otherwise a good hotel with really friendly staff.
Breakfast is good.
Has a gym.
Booking was incorrectly done
Ilum in Palermo Hollywood, Buenos Aires”
We used this hotel for our brief stay in BA for seeing the city and as a jumping off point to go to and from Iguassu Falls. One of the beauties of the hotel is that you can leave your heavy luggage there and take smaller bags for the trip to Iguassu (most of the airlines limit you to 15kg of checked baggage/person for the flights to Iguassu). The hotel is also situated in a quiet but nice area of BA. There were 3 or 4 restaurants within walking distance and all unique, private (not chain) type places. Also easy to get to the national airport (10 mins and 150 peso) and a 600 peso ride ($40 and 30 mins) to the International Airport (EZE). We didn;t get to sample the breakfast as we were on an early flight to Iguassu but they still made a coffee and a croissant/muffin in "to go" bags for us. Rooms are clean and fresh and the staff really put themselves out for you in any way they can (call a reputable taxi for you) etc.
Beautiful, tranquil hotel in Palermo Hollywood”
I loved this place. After coming from a less than impressive set up in San Telmo, I breathed a sigh of relief and joy when I was led into my room.
The staff here are super friendly and will organise anything you need. The only slight hiccough was that the pool was not yet operational. This is only because it's a new hotel and they are waiting for the relevant permit.
I will definitely return to this hotel when I visit Buenos Aires next time.
I'll book it again next time!”
Very nice hotel with extremely friendly and supportive staff. Nice "barrio", but, the only weakness, a little bit far away from the next metro station.
Location, Room, Staff
Very pleasant! And comfortable
Would have been good but construction next door”
Friendly staff, clean
This would have been perfectly adequate had it not been for the construction site right next door. We were told the builders on this site next to the hotel would not start until after breakfast time but we were woken up at 7am to the sound of hammering. We were in the garden view room so perhaps on the other side of the hotel building it would be much quieter. Book the city view rooms until the building work is finished. The staff are all friendly and rooms are fine so it's a shame about the noise from the building site next door.
great design, , friendly staff
This was a really nice hotel in a pretty good location in Palermo. The design is really great, including a fantastic water feature that drops down one whole side of the building. The room was well equipped and comfortable, and was very clean. The bathroom was nice and there was a tasteful garden out the back (though the construction going on nearby didn't make that too relaxing). The staff were all really friendly and always keen to please, for example giving us complimentary coffee when we arrived too early to check in.
