Buena Vida Social Club is a friendly, comfortable B&B in a beautiful spot on the outskirts of El Bolson.  It is situated up a hill a few kilometres from town - we walked in once going downhill but walking back would be a bit of a climb. The owners Horacio and Kitty are incredibly friendly and helpful and made us...

Our hosts Kitty and Horacio looked after our every need. From delicious breakfasts prepared from fresh local ingredients and exquisitely presented, to taxi bookings and information on local attractions, everything was offered. The house has a large deck perfect for relaxing and taking in the view across the valley to the mountains and is surrounded by trees. Wifi is excellent.

This B&B is up a hill on a ripio road. We enjoyed the adventure of getting lost and finding our way. The place itself is decorated very tastefully especially in the downstairs living and dining area. The room was comfortable as was the bed. But the most memorable thing about the place was the breakfast. Loved it, loved it, loved...

We stayed at BVSC for three nights in Dec and loved it! Horacio and Kitty were so nice and welcoming and the house is beautiful and extremely comfortable. There is a big wraparound porch with lovely views of the snow-capped mountains which was a perfect setting for a glass of wine in the evening. The house is filled with interesting...

The Buena Vida Social Club is truly exceptional and must be ranked as one of the most beautiful guesthouses in the world . The rooms are spacious and warm and all offering glorious views of the town of El Bolson and the snow capped mountains around . The beds are super comfortable offering one a deeper and more pleasant experience....

Cecilia looked after us really well. The hotel is quiet, the view is beautiful, breakfast is wonderful. The hotel wins for me just for the fantastic doors and the lovely floor downstairs. It's really a great place to be in El Bolson. Definitely stay here.

Great place to stay just out of the main area. Very peaceful and Kitty and Horacio are gracious hosts. Kitty's home made bread is yum and the brekky is best we have had in Argentina!!! The bed incredibly comfy. Wish we had stayed longer.

We stayed two nights at Buena Vida Social Club and loved everything about it. Horacio and Kitty were the perfect hosts with a lot of great recommendations and they made the best breakfast we've had in Argentina so far. Recommend it to everybody!

The stay was great! A very welcoming feeling arranged by Horacio and Kitty. Breakfast is unique, healthy and tasty. Is about 12 minutes drive to town by a cab. You can call the "remise" from the hotel, or the hosts help you with it. Best beds of our stay in Argentina.

In Dec. 2013 we had the privilege of spending 5 night with Horacio and Kitty. At the end of our stay we hated to leave. Not only were they excellent hosts, making us feel very special but the views from their home were stunning. We also very much enjoyed the unusual art and stained glass which decorated their B &...
