Highly recommend Petit Hotel el Vitraux! The place is conveniently located with walking distance to restaurants, the port, parks and much more. Elena is a fantastic host. She is a well-informed and culturally aware conversationalist. Elena is also super knowledgeable about things to do and places to dine in BA. Her recommendations certainly enriched our experiences in BA. What's more! Her garden is frequented by hummingbirds and two lovely cats add much characters to the place. If you are not a cat person, not to worry. The cats dont bother you and stay away from your room. I am not much of a cat person, but love Elena's cats. There is so much more to be said about this place. In short, I'd stay here again if I am ever in Buenos Aires again. Big thanks to Elena and her cats!

After a long flight from India to Argentina, and arriving at Buenos Aires late in the night, I couldn’t have asked for a better welcome than the one by Elena of Petit El Vitraux. She had proactively started communicating with me weeks before my scheduled trip, passing on every small bit of information that may be required for my trip. Tired after a long journey, her infectious energy rubbed off on me and we stayed up late in the night chatting after I checked in. Didn’t seem that we had just met then, Elena made me feel comfortable from the start. Her home and the rooms have a warm feel and are well furnished. The dinning room and open patio was a place to make new friends with the other guests over good breakfast and lovely coffee. To the extent that instead of rushing out early in the morning to tick off the sightseeing checklist, we sat around and spend time catching up with each other. Bathroom/toilet was not attached to the room but common to all, however was extremely clean and hygienic and there was never a rush for the same. The location was also very convenient. Elena walked with me to the ATMs and bus stop to show me around and was always ready to discuss and suggest the best things I could do in Buenos Aires based on my preferences. If I go back to Buenos Aires, Petit El Vitraux is where I d definitely stay again

Warm, funny, charming, gracious, helpful and genuine: it is rare that a B and B host makes you feel right at home, or as if you're staying with a good friend who makes you feel like Buenos Aires is yours. The rooms are high-ceilinged and quite spacious, and the beds you sink right into for a pleasant night's sleep. All in all, we love BA for its wonderful museums, the violent protests in the city centre during the time we were there (yep), and this unforgettable superlative stay at Elena's. Love, Sean and Bern.

I can't recommend this place highly enough. I have just been back for my third stay and am already looking forward to my next stay at the end of October It is a lovely homely place and Elena is so warm and welcoming. She's also so helpful, she gave us loads of good tips for Buenos Aires and helped us with planning other parts of our trip. She reserved tables for us, booked taxis, helped us with public transport and much more. I loved the way that she talked about the Argentine way of life and always had lots of different things for us to try over breakfast. The location is great, we literally walked everywhere apart from to La Boca or Palermo. Walking back through the neighbourhood after dark was also no problem
