Staff are really helpful on how to use public transportation/local attractions and speak perfect English. Very nicely decorated rooms with high ceilings as per the pictures online. The hotel is located in a very central part of the city and close to public transport, cafes and restaurants nearby.

My husband and I decided to take a long weekend to make our first visit to Buenos Aires and unfortunately I didn't have much time to study up on much in advance. After doing a little searching I booked Rooney's but I began to doubt my decision after speaking with a few folks who'd visited BA before. I was told... More

This was an out of the box surprise for our first visit to Buenos Aires. It is located in one of the wonderful atmospheric Belle Époque apartment buildings in Sarmiento within easy walking distance of the cenotaph and the city centre. It has a (mostly) functioning cage lift, wonderful high ceilings, ancient but effective hydronic central heating, functional and comfortable... More

The hotel staff is so helpful and attentive. They truly make this place. A group of us stayed for 5 nights and enjoyed using the common areas to catch up after a long day of site seeing. The hotel would be great with a few minor changes that are easily fixable. New beds and some details to the bathroom. Note... More

Excellent location / spacious rooms / outstanding value / brilliant front-desk staff. We thoroughly enjoyed our honeymoon stay at Rooney's Boutique Hotel. The staff, particularly Gabby, Guillermo, Sarah & Kevin were magnificent in providing the local knowledge necessary to enhance our trip.

I stayed here on my first and last nights in BA. I can't say enough good things. The hotel is lovely, historic, charming, and well appointed. Rooms have en suite toilets and showers (albeit a little small). I felt as if I was staying in a home, not a hotel. Common areas are lovely and breakfast is complimentary. The best... More

We had a tough time at a hotel further south in the city (rough neighbourhood), so we bit the bullet and walked in hoping to get a room last minute. We were in luck.

Neighbourhood Profile
San Nicolas

The financial district is well-known for its vibrant atmosphere and unstoppable rhythm during office hours. After dark, the hubbub and migrates to Corrientes Ave., where theatre lovers might start their evening at a play and end it in one of the many traditional pizzerias nearby.
