“Wonderful boutique hotel with friendly staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 November 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and are so happy we picked it as our first hotel on our Argentina/Uruguay trip. After a long day of travel, going from California to Buenos Aires, this was the perfect place to get our bearings and make ourselves at home for a few days. The ownership of this hotel has chosen the perfect people to work at this hotel - they are attentive, charming, informative, speak English very well (while not necessary for all travelers, we enjoyed defaulting to English when we got caught up on how to say a word in Spanish), and just overall very service oriented. They were great with recommendations when we asked for them, and great with helping us narrow down our daily schedules when we simply had too much to do in too little of time. They constantly went above and beyond and have obviously mastered the ability to help alleviate travelers concerns and smooth out trips. They fixed an issue I had with the bus company and they made other phone calls to help with additional planning. Over the course of 4 days, we started learning each of their personalities and looked forward to seeing them at the beginning and end of our days.

The location is great - we loved Palermo Soho. Great shops, restaurants, music/art, etc. And a safe area to walk around at all hours. The rooms were large, comfortable, and had everything we needed. We stayed in one overlooking the busy street, but couldn't hear anything once the door was shut.

Patricia, Eva, Diego, and everyone...thank you for your help, we really enjoyed our stay because of you.

My wife and I spent a week in Buenos Aires at this boutique hotel in Buenos Aires. We chose the hotel based on it's good TripAdvisor rating and we were not disappointed. The location is good for walking distance to great restaurants and shopping. However, the best part of the hotel is the very friendly, courteous and helpful staff.

Room Tip: Rooms with the balcony over the outside courtyard will be quieter than the rooms that face the stree...

Glu was exactly as advertised. Clean, modern, comfortable and spacious. The staff are exceedingly friendly and entirely knowledgeable. We asked and then relied on their recommendations for local restaurants and they never failed to disappoint. Our room was spacious, comfortable and a welcome base for our explorations of the city and neighborhoods. We intend to return to BsAs soon and will make sure we stay at The Glu.

The hotel is located in the Palermo Soho district. The area is analogous to Greenwich Village, but with more graffiti. We understand the area is safe and does contain a number of restaurants and bars. If you are comfortable with this, you will love this small boutique hotel.
The comfortable guest rooms are clean and large. The staff is 'over the top' with assisting with travel plans. They looked online for our planned delta visit when we only had the vendor's email address. They found his telephone number and told the vendor we would be arriving by taxi as opposed to by train with a connection. Of course, this was after our concurrence as they highly recommended this change. This is just one example.
We have never experienced hotel staff like this. Some of the staff names are Ava, Patricia, Carolina, and, regrettably, I cannot remember the others. They were the best!

My wife and I recently made a trip to Buenos Aires to visit our son. We generally prefer small hotels for the opportunity to interact with the local staff in a less formal atmosphere than a big hotel. You can get a good taste of a city when you are in a small hotel, in a neighborhood with a staff that is willing to engage and help out with some advice.

We totally enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The room was comfortable, well thought out and nicely decorated. We slept great while trying to adjust to crossing 5 timezones. It was close to restaurants, great walking streets with shops and parks.

The staff was the best aspect of our stay, smart, engaging and just plain nice. They greeted us each day with conversation giving us some good insight as to what living in Buenos Aires is like. They seemed to get a sense of who we were as well and made suggestions for things me might want to see and do.

When we return to Buenos Aries this will be the spot for us, we throughly enjoyed this hotel.

Very modern, clean and comfortable room. The staff is very welcoming and attentive. The location is near Palermo main attractions but the street itself is not charming at all and has a lot of traffic. Sound isolation is good though and you don’t hear any street noise in your room.

From time to time I need to stay in a hotel in BA, and this time there'd been a confusion with reservation at my usual digs. It was a long weekend in Brazil and I was lucky to get a great room at Glu on zero notice.

The room was great, comfortable and blissfully had double glazed windows. That kept the bulk of the Saturday night partying sounds out, allowing for a great rest.

Highlights: staff attitude, which included a spontaneous offer of an espresso while I waited for my cab for a super-early departure to the airport, and waived the extra billing of a mineral water. Good wifi too.

Regrets? That I did not come across the principals during the brief periods I was in the public areas. I would have loved to compare notes and experiences.
