We loved our stay in Buenos Aires and this hotel is a great little find, highly recommended. The breakfast is great, the staff are very knowledgeable and efficient, they speak very good English. We felt that they could not have done anymore for us. The room was stylish and we had a bathroom and shower with a glass roof which...

The hotel is just a beautiful structure on a tree lined street in a great section of Buenos Aires, Palermo Soho. The rooms are clean and inviting. Plus the rooms include an awesome breakfast complete with coffee, juice, assorted breads, fruit and even eggs if desired. Great great hotel!

It's not only a well-priced, well-located, well-situated boutique hotel - Vain adds a personal touch to complement all of this. The staff were absolutely fantastic in helping us out when our airline lost our luggage and then bungled the rescue mission for the next 10 days. We could not be more grateful, and will return.

Such friendly people who were very helpful and whose attention to detail showed throughout the hotel. Room was small but well laid out and very clean and bright. Nice lounge and sun deck. Excellent breakfast. Good position close to botanic gardens and good restaurents in Palermo. Would certainly stay again

I've stayed for only one night in this property as I would take an early flight from Aeroparque the next morning. Nevertheless, I've found Vain to be a nice hotel, with an excellent location if you're primarily interested in walking around Palermo. Even though, you can easily reach other parts of the city by taxi or subway (there's a station...

From the moment we arrived (12 hour delay at Iguazu, so we arrived at 3:30 am), we were treated with warmth and kindness. This boutique hotel was the bomb! First night our room was downstairs and a little claustrophobic, but the remaining 5 nights we upgraded to a second-floor room that became our home away from home, absolutely lovely, spacious...

This small boutique hotel was a real gem and we would certainly stay here again if we get the opportunity. It's modern, neat and clean with a relaxing atmosphere.

Neighbourhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighbourhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favourite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in the heart of Palermo Viejo neighborhood, only 15 minutes away from the main tourist attractions, VAIN Boutique Hotel gives the possibility of having another alternative to the noisy BA downtown. It preserves the "Porteno" neighborhood feeling, combined with a bohemian and avant-garde mixture that can be sensed in the variety of stores, from fashion designers, antique and design furniture to coffee shops, fashion restaurants and bars, along with the traditional ones. ... more   less
