Rooney's Boutique Hotel represented everything I expected Buenos Aires to be - elegant, stylish and full of history. The hotel was once the home of a famous poet and the building across the hotel (looking out onto Avenida Callao) was once the home of Eva Peron when she first arrived in Buenos Aires (the tacky double decker bus told me that). Upon entering the building, you are greeted with tall, black iron doors and have to buzz in. Then you can take a really beautiful old style (functions very well, don't worry) elevator or walk up the marble stairs. I personally preferred the elevator because of the interesting patterns the elevator and light would produce on the walls. The interior of the hotel is decorated with French neoclassical pieces mixed in with cool hues of blues, greens and neutrals giving it an overall contemporary feel. The high ceilings and large windows flooded the rooms with light; our stay was sunny and rain free. The dining room (free breakfast), bar/sitting area and an additional sitting area are just a few steps from the reception desk. During our stay, the band "Miranda!" even shot their music video in several of the rooms.

I went on vacation with my parents and my twentysomething-year old brother, I myself am almost 20 so we got 2 rooms - 3&4, one deluxe size, the other a studio. Both rooms were cozy and beautifully decorated. Both also had balconies. The only difference between the two rooms were obviously the size of the room and bathroom. The staff is really warm and inviting and is more than willing to help you, especially Nico - super kind and easy to talk to. The hotel also offers free tango lessons on certain nights which are a lot of fun...such a sexy and sensual dance.

Our amazing hotel experience on top of everything else Buenos Aires had to offer (parillas, empanadas, leather, suade, fur, the artists at malba, amazing graffiti, spanish&french architecture, the spanish language, the prices, uruguay and every neighborhood in Buenos Aires except Puerto Madero....it's a boring neighborhood...) just helped emphasize my great appreciation for the city and left me with great memories. I am definitely going back to Buenos Aires.

Had a fabulous stay at Rooney's (five nights at the start of our trip and one at the end). Just loved the stylish period features. The owner Kieran and his staff were incredibly helpful, spoke good English and had lots of advice about where to eat, where to visit and how to get around. The free tango lessons with Horacio & Maria were great fun and a must in BA.

The hotel is very central (within walking distance of most attractions) and we always felt perfectly safe walking around, even in the early hours. The only downside would be some street noise but that's to be expected in a central hotel. Staying here was one of the high points of our trip and we travelled all over Argentina. Highly recommend this for an authentic BA experience.

Very friendly and helpful staff - Always eager to please.
Room a little noisy due to proximity of reception (the charm of old doors as opposed to modern soundproofed ones!) but not too much of a problem.
Shower tends to spray on bathroom floor, which could be remedied easily - Again not a major problem.
Central location good for visiting all the major spots in BA.
A tad on the expensive side compared to other 'renowned' hotels and don't forget to include the tax in the calculation of your budget/bill as it makes a difference in the end.
Overall a good experience, and we would book again in the future.

Rooney`s Boutique hotel was everything we needed: nice and unique rooms, professional staff and closeness to all main attractions. We stayed in superior rooms and both of them (we stayed in 2 different rooms) were fine. We had to leave the hotel twice to travel around the country and they let us leave our baggage and provided us with an early breakfast. Tango lessions were available too, unfortunately we did not attend and surely it was an experience. Also Nicolas recommended us an awsome tango show which we really enjoyed. If I were to choose a hotel in BA, I would definately choose a boutique hotel - Rooney`s boutique hotel. Unfortunately we did not have a chance to see the owner (Kieran) to express our appreciation.

We stayed at a few differant hotels in Argentina and Uruguay. We enjoyed this one the most. The staff was frienly and knowledgeable. They made great recommendations for places to eat. The tango lesson was fun and the rooms were fine. We stayed 6 days at the beginning of our visit and 2 at the end. We would definately return.
