Rooney`s Boutique hotel was everything we needed: nice and unique rooms, professional staff and closeness to all main attractions. We stayed in superior rooms and both of them (we stayed in 2 different rooms) were fine. We had to leave the hotel twice to travel around the country and they let us leave our baggage and provided us with an...

We stayed at a few differant hotels in Argentina and Uruguay. We enjoyed this one the most. The staff was frienly and knowledgeable. They made great recommendations for places to eat. The tango lesson was fun and the rooms were fine. We stayed 6 days at the beginning of our visit and 2 at the end. We would definately return.

Myself and new bride stayed there for 5 days. The bedroom and hotel were nicely decorated and spacious. The Tango lessons were fun. I'd recommend them. We stayed in a number of different hotels while in South America and this hotel was the best experience. The best part about it was the staff who were very friendly. Nico at the...

Hotels in many cities around the globe are often the worst way to begin and end an experience. Though their accommodations may be superb, their star rating at or near 5, they remove you from the actual culture you've hopefully traveled to experience. On the other side, there are hotels that leave you in less possessions than which you came,...

Kieran Rooney and his staff are the perfect hosts in this turn of the century setting. The atmosphere and decor is relaxed and comfortable and the service is responsive and kind. My husband and I stayed here for a few days while waiting to move into our apartment. As we checked out, Kieran reminded us to call with any questions,...

I stayed first at room number 3. Its door is in front of the door of the breakfast room and the windows are in front of Sarmiento Street. This street has a lot of dance places for teenagers and it is a noisy place, so it is impossible to sleep all the night if you stay at 3 or 4....

Stayed for a few days in September. Small hotel is situated in the heart of the hustle bustle of the city but stepping inside you are transported to old world Buenos Aires charm and beautifully detailed surroundings. Location was perfect for sightseeing during the day (equivalent to midtown Manhattan) and has quite a few very popular and very delicious restaurants...

Our room was quite nice although the walls are paper thin and it was extremely noisy throughout the night. Not recommended for couples wanting an quiet escape! Our room was just like a bedroom in a big old house with heaps of character. Its in a great location though where you can walk to everything and there's lots of places...

The only thing missing from Rooney's Boutique Hotel is Eva Peron sipping a cocktail in the guest lounge. The inauspicious entrance at street level only serves to bolster the impression on arriving at the third floor reception. Two spacious apartments converted into one boutique hotel with each room individually decorated using finest period furniture gives an impression of pre-war Paris....

Neighbourhood Profile
San Nicolas
Immersed in the sound of honking horns and the footsteps of busy office workers, the Microcentro area of San Nicolás is where visitors will encounter the true hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, walking down streets lined with office buildings and banks. 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.
