Excellent location in the vibrant Palermo. It has outstanding architecture and interior design. A great balance between French inspired old and modern touches.

Friendly and helpful front desk workers. They all spoke English (which was good, because my Spanish isn't great). They helped me out with questions about the surrounding area.

10/10 Exceptional

Located in a century old building with only 15 rooms, the Vain Boutique Hotel played a significant role in the success of my Buenos Aires trip. I'm so glad that I stayed at the Vain Hotel rather than at any of the big chains. The location was great, the service was fantastic, and the value was unmatched. I particularly liked the amenities such as the daily afternoon social, the hot tub on the roof, and the fantastic (and complimentary) made-to-order breakfast. The glass water bottles in each room, cleaned and refilled daily, were a particularly nice touch. The location of this hotels, 3 blocks form the Subte and within walking distance of Palermo's many restaurants, was ideal. We ate in Palermo every night, not out any desire not to travel, but because the best restaurants were there. We got daily activity and restaurant recommendations from the front desk staff. Manque was awesome! Every need was catered to and no request was too small. I find it hard to imagine getting better and more personalized treatment anywhere else.
