Vain was definitely one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. The staff was excellent! They were always smiling and very helpful with anything we needed. They even provide a nice welcome folder with maps, guides and complimentary drink ticket at their bar. We also booked our airport taxi through them and it was a very easy process....

We spent three nights in Buenos Aires before travelling around the country. We loved the Vain Boutique so much that during our stay we booked an extra night there at the end of our trip. The hotel is immaculate whilst still being incredibly homely. The rooms we stayed in were perfect for a short trip (I'm never keen on staying...

Bottom line: Overall we were very happy with this hotel. + The best staff we have seen, Great breakfast, Cleanness, Location, Services. - The rooms on the ground floor are too close to the public area. We staid there on out last night at Argentina, after five week of honeymoon. The hotel is made of two old Italian style buildings...

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
