After nearly two weeks in the Lake District of Argentina/Chile and a southern Patagonian cruise, we didn't think that our stay in Buenos Aires could rival what we had already done on this "bucket list" vacation. Were we wrong. Our stay at the Livian Guesthouse was right up there. It is an absolutely charming B & B, a restored townhouse/mansion...

Im reading the other reviews, before I write mine.. and all the time I´m thinking....uh?, what?, where? really???!! I was booked there for 5 nights.

We've visited Livian Guesthouse in late August for almost a week. Once arrived we were welcomed by fresh orange juice. Staff was always helpful, they helped us to book some tickets (since we have no Spanish) and recommended some good places to visit. The interior looks very charming, like you're visiting your old friend's house. The weather was a little...

I stayed here for a week whilst waiting to find a house in Buenos Aires, and I didn't want to leave. Great spread for breakfast considering the reasonably priced rooms, they bring you a fruit salad freshly prepared when you sit down as well as the breads, cereals and eggs on offer. Warm, friendly atmosphere, staff cannot do enough for...

Few days in a very charming place with a kind, friendly and efficient staff. We were like at home: nice and quiet room, with a confortable queen bed and a real breakfast. Good start to visit Buenos Aires, strongly recommended.

I've spent 7 nights with my husband in Livian Guest House. We choosed Palermo because we wanted to stay far from the tourist's movement at the "microcentro", where most of the hotels are located. The photos in Trip Advisor were attractive and the reviews so positive that they made our mind. We decided to book one of the superior rooms...

We stayed at Livian recently when arriving and leaving Buenos Aires as part of a longer trip around central and northern Argentina. This is a lovely, interesting guesthouse. The receptionists were particularly helpful and friendly. Location is pretty good, the rooms are interestingly themed and communal areas homely. The walls are a little thin, but this wasn't too much of...

This isn't the Ritz, but a very friendly B and B type house run by people who will bend over backwards to make your stay enjoyable. It's within walking distance to the great Viejo Palermo neighbourhood and close by buses to central BA.

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.
