Managers are french and speak also spanish & english. The house is very nice, well decorated, with many stairs. Room is very clean, with a designed shower, conditioning air and a very confortable king size bed. Managers gave us some advices for restaurants and they are applying the new argentine policy concerning taxe refund for foreigners paying by credit card.

Well located in the heart of Palermo, the hotel layout and decor are quirky and shabby-chic - was not so keen on the saloon door between the bedroom and bathroom. Breakfast is very basic - coffee, juice and croissant. There is some outdoor space, a roof terrace. Marco at the front desk was superb and made great suggestions for local...

A fine combination of slightly convolutes corridors and different shaped rooms. Very charming! Kind and responsive staff but our room had only window through the door. Bathroom large and clean and with a good spacious bed.

I stayed a couple of days at Costa Rica, this stylish, a bit classy yet cosy Hotel in Palermo. Restaurants and bars are within reach, I always felt safe. The staff was helpful at all times, printing bus tickets, lending a SUBE card, giving advice for washing clothes, doing international phone calls etc. Silvina and the "french guys" were really...

This is an old pension converted to a very nice hotel. It has the charm of an old traditional building with the amenities of a small and intimate modern hotel. The room was very comfortable and well equipped, decorated tastefully in a minimalist style. The ground floor is an attractive common area, including the inner courtyard. At the top, there...

Two friends and I stayed in a triple room for a few nights here (room 7). The room had its own bathroom and shower with great water pressure, but there are also rooms that are just rooms and use shared bathrooms.

I don't know if I was expecting better, but upon seeing the room I was disappointed. Concrete flooring, separate sink-toilet setup, semi-see through curtains and overall dark and dreary. Not to mention it was FREEZING! And that was my initial reaction. I spent three nights and in spite of sad first impression, I ended up enjoying my stay. The staff...

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.

“Top floor rooms tend to be smaller but you are next to the rooftop terrace. Lower floors with high ceilings. Any choice is good value.”
