This is a gem of a small hotel in a busy residential area of Buenos Aires. The owners Valeria and Jorge, and their staff, were very welcoming and helpful on our first trip to Argentina. The house is full of beautiful art, rooms are small but spotless, and excellent breakfast is served through noon (and possibly later). The area is full of shops and restaurants, but the street is quiet at night.
Valeria, the owner, speaks fluent English; and everybody at the B&B was happy to share recommendations (and make reservations!) for their favorite places in B.A. - restaurants, coffee shops, parks, milongas (tango clubs), art events, etc.
Unique Quality: Wonderful hosts, good location, excellent breakfast, spotless rooms and common facilities.
Additional services can be arranged - tango or yoga lessons, massages, etc..
Directions: Barrio Belgrano
I had the single room w/shared bathroom, for only $20 a night. It was a fine location, only 3 blocks from the subway, the end of the D/Green line.
it's a B&B, and the owners live in this part of the house. So you are sharing it with them, some like that, some don't. In retrospect, I'd have rather stayed somewhere where I'm alone. It's like living in someone's house....kinda weird.
Breakfast was fine, bread, jam, coldcuts, cheese, coffee, tea. You get a nice towel and a big bar of soap. Owners are friendly and helpful. They also called me a cab when I left, and it was only $48 pesos...cheap.
Directions: Between the last 2 stops on the D/Green line. 2 blocks off the main street.
