“Good location and nice rooms - but tobacco smell”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2013

Nicely located in San Telmo, close to some very fine restaurants and bars. The hotel reception is very nice, and the rooms are very comfortable and clean, except that ours smelled of cold tabacco. I guess former guests kept smoking in the room, so they should put some big signs prohibiting the smoking inside as it's absolutely disgusting for non-smokers to sleep in that smell. My parents room was fine though, I guess ours was the exception. The hotel staff is very helpful and we had a lovely stay there in general. I would recommend it for an affordable place to stay in this neighborhood.

Dear Guest.
Thank you for your nice reference. San Telmo is an excelent option for those who wants to stay close to the night life and gastronomy. Yes, unforunely some passengers brake the rules of non smoking, we will put bigger signs to avoid this. Thank you for your suggestion. Next time you can ask for another room if there's is something unconfortable. Kind Regards

The rooms are small and basic... Other than location, though, there isn’t much else to offer. A good thing at the hotel was the breakfast... and it is central to one of the best beef restaurants in Buenos Aires...

The Bohemia is perfectly located in the center of the neighborhoods to explore in Buenos Aires. We also found the value for what you get spectacular. Nice beds, AC (needed in the summer), and a good breakfast rounded out our nice stay here

Friendly staff. Good breakfast- it's nice because you can sit outside. The hotel is ideally located in San Telmo - perfect for visiting the Sunday market (not so sure about walking home at night?!). Satisfying rooms. WiFi. Overall an enjoyable stay!

The location of the hotel is great, not to far from the main center (just follow the Peru st until you reach Florida intersection), there are several great places to eat around.
The Hotel itself is clean, and very comfortable room with well working AC, with soft bed.
The breakfast is fresh and tasty (the breads are just greats)
Good Wifi Signal.

Overall, great value for this price.

The staff is OK but no more than that, it seems that the staff answer (in good english) your questions only because they have to answer...

There is no elevator , so don't bring heavy luggage :).

The rooms a bit small.

The hotel itself is in pretty good shape. My room was small and simple, but complete. Some small attention to detail (like filling in the holes and repairing the wall after taking down the older TV stand) is necessary. The breakfast was fresh and tasty. For the price you pay, the accommodations aren't bad.

However, two things: the neighborhood seemed sketchy, and I was leery about walking around too much. Secondly, this was my first trip overseas and when I arrived at the Bohmeia I was not told I had to leave my key at the front desk if I leave the hotel to sight-see or eat or whatever. When I returned from one such expedition, the lady at the desk scolded me for not following this rule (which, by the way, is not done in the United States AT ALL). I felt like a child. Likewise, the staff was cordial, but they are not "friendly" as I expect from major chain hotels. This is something that could be improved, for sure.

Dear guest ,
Thank you for your review, Im taking note of the holes you describe to fix them as soon as posible. About the keys request we are sorry if you have felt been scolded, it wasnt our intention, one of our most important strenght is the attention service, we will include the key rule explanation on the check in to improve the service.

Kind Regards and Happy Holydays
