    Great service at Vain Boutique!

    The hotel had a lot of character and was well run. The people working seemed to care you received great service and were very accommodating when we had to hang out for an evening flight. The location is good and safe. Breakfast was great. I would stay there again.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Came there and left after about one hour to different hotel even Vain was already paid for. Room was cold and moist (the reason I think is that room on the first floor doesn't have windows and only has small window in the door that goes to backyard with no sunlight). Tried to set thermostat to higher temperature. Didn't work. Went to the front desk and asked how we can turn heat on. The guy said just press up . Ok went to the room and tried that. Didn't work, went back to the front desk, asked again to fix it; guy (Martin) was too busy casually talking to other customers about his trip to London. Said he will reset the system from his desk (reseting his thermostat on the wall). Obviously didn't work. He never even went to check our thermostat (must be long walk of 10 feet from the front desk to our room). Disappointing. We booked different hotel and left Thanks for nothing

    Unreachable and not accommodating and the hotel couldn’t accommodate an emergency request I made to cancel the booking a few days in advance. Apparently tried multiple times to contact the hotel but never got through to them. Very sad customer experience.

    All hail Vain!

    I am so pleased I booked the Vain Hotel in Buenos Aires. The hotel was in an excellent location, walkable to anywhere we wanted to go and when we went farther afield the hotel booked us a taxi or we just took the ‘subte’. All the staff at Vain were excellent, even if they couldn’t speak English we managed to communicate. The breakfast choices are brilliant - you won’t go hungry at this hotel. Our room was so lovely and comfortable. We booked a superior room with a balcony which was quite small but so quaint. My husband and I love to people watch and it was the perfect balcony to do that. Although the hotel is on a ‘semi main road’ we never heard a thing from the traffic at night time. When you take things from the mini bar they are very reasonable prices so don’t worry about taking out that bottle of vino as it’s just a few dollars. If you buy vino from the Bar in the hotel it’s also very reasonable and if you don’t finish it they will keep it for you. The top terrace is comfortable and quiet but could do with a bit of a revamp - perhaps some new chairs that are more comfortable to sit on. I regret not spending time in the hot tub but we were so enamored with Buenos Aires that we didn’t have time. We want to go back to BA again next year to do some more exploring and if we make it we will definitely stay at the Vain. We hail from Ireland but live in Chicago. Thanks Vain staff.
