Enjoyed staying there... Room very clean, breaksfast is good. Service is good and the staff is very helpful. The location of this small hotel is also good. It is easy access to go anywhere. Subte (underground train) is only 5 minutes walking from the hotel, 10 minutes walking to antique market.

The rooms are comfortable, quiet, and modern. The Mariposita Tango School is the best tango school in Buenos Aires, the place were the pros go to learn. Classes... More

This is a tough review because we loved the hotel overall, but there are still a few improvements that could make this a top rated place to stay. Having said that, it's still a fabulous hotel and one of the best values I've ever come across. It's both a boutique hotel and a Tango school/studio. The owners, Tango dancer Carolina... More

This bed & breakfast is a charm in San Telmo, and is more famously recognised as a famous Tango school. It has a very non-assuming facade, though you can see the balconies for two of the rooms at the front if you look up, but the two doors which lead to the premises look normal, hiding the gem which is...

“There is a very wide variety of rooms. Those on the street side do get more noise.”

“All the rooms are great and spacous and are ensuite. However, go on their website to see which room design you prefer and things they vary on is balcony and bed arrangement. One room has a kitchenette too. Our was the Twin Cuzo room. Just a word of warning, their rooms are often booked solid as many Tango dancers who come there to stay (can take almost all classes for free!) stay for sometimes months at end.”
  • Our room had a small long window that looked out into the corridor, so you don't feel claustroph
  • Our bathroom sink - truly cultural
  • Linens were fresh, and clean.
