A modern boutique hotel that retains many of its traditional features.Friendly staff, great service and well placed for touring the City. Palermo is a lovely area to stay in with a wide selection of bars and restaurants Everything we hoped for when we booked was delivered. You cannot ask for more than that.

Try the restaurant down the street one block towards Plaza Italia, Carneceria. Great food and they are not afraid to serve great food. Vain Boutique Hotel is comfortable and has an allstar staff. Check out the common areas. I did not want to leave. Vain Boutique treated me very well.

A wonderful small hotel with a very helpful staff that all that we encountered spoke excellent English. The shuttle service was seamless and the home-cooked breakfasts tasty & substantial. Our room (203) was clean & quiet & perfect for our 2 night stay. All in all we thoroughly recommend this hotel.

Wonderful little hotel, right in the center of Palermo and central to everything in Buenos Aires. Staff was incredibly helpful (including helping provide information, secure restaurant reservations in advance, and details of local events) and there was a wonderful UNLIMITED breakfast menu with a wide variety of choices every morning, included in the price of the hotel. Would definitely recommend...

They helped arrange airport transfer, booked tango tour, and allowing me to check in early. Thank you again for providing such exceptional services.

Overall, we had a pretty ok stay. There's enough written here about the staff, breakfast, and location of the hotel, so I will write about two areas where there could be improvement, as this left us with a very bad first and last impression of your hotel. For these two reasons, only 3 stars. I realize your check-in time is...

This hotel is in a good location, rooms are spacious and comfortable. The staff were very helpful and their were plenty of choices on the breakfast menu with good quality food. The only issue was that there were no english speaking television channels. Otherwise we would highly recommend this hotel.

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in the heart of Palermo Viejo neighborhood, only 15 minutes away from the main tourist attractions, VAIN Boutique Hotel gives the possibility of having another alternative to the noisy BA downtown. It preserves the "Porteno" neighborhood feeling, combined with a bohemian and avant-garde mixture that can be sensed in the variety of stores, from fashion designers, antique and design furniture to coffee shops, fashion restaurants and bars, along with the traditional ones. ... more   less
