We spent two nights in the Own.
On the border between Palermo Soho and Palermo Hollywood, there is some construction done on the street, also a new office building is built opposite to the hotel. To Palermo Soho you have to walk ten minutes, also ten minutes to the restaurant district of Palermo Hollywood. Sometimes you hear the trains or the nearby bigger street (but only when window is open). You have to keep in mind that you have to take a cab or the metro to the city center, but i prefer Soho because of it's shops and bars, and the atmosphere is more relaxed than in the city center.
Spacious, good bed, not so much space to store luggage and belongings, Flat TV, sound system where you can connect your iPod/iPhone, good equipped mini bar, six different bottles of red wine, big safety deposit box. Design is a little bit 'reduced', no workplace, free WiFi available.
Our bathroom seemed to be under construction, ceiling above shower seemed to be prepared to be painted, it was not possible to close the door to the bathroom completely, shower was very good but the shower head was not adjustable and fell down every couple of minutes, no mirror behind the basin. Bathrobes and flip flops available, also the usual stuff (shampoo, conditioner).
Very friendly and helpful.
Is served in the bar area, not so comfortable to have breakfast sitting on a couch, coffee is very good, fresh fruits, yoghurt, toast, media lunas, ham, cheese, average Buenos Aires standard. No possibility to sit outside.
All in all i would say OWN is between good and average (bathroom was less then average) but nothing special. In the same price range there are for sure better options in Palermo.
