Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 15 January 2014 via mobile

The Glu is a small, 11 room hotel with smart, modern rooms right in the midst of the best of Palermo SoHo. Restaurants like La Cabrera and La Crizia are literally 2 and 3 blocks away.

What makes The Glu stand out, however, is the amazing concierge service of the hotels friendly staff - we worked extensively with Carolina and Daniel. They helped us with everything from booking a day trip to Colonia to finding restaurants that match our desire to explore various neighborhoods.

Rooms are clean and modern - fairly typical "modern European" style. WiFi worked without hitches.

Receives my highest recommendation.

This is a lovely boutique hotel with the most wonderful concierge service. We stayed over New Year's in their large apartment with a private terrace, which was a wonderful retreat on New Year's Day when most of BA was closed. Modern, spotless, spacious and absolutely soundproof.
When our original plans to fly home from Chile had to be changed, and we found ourselves back in BA a week later with luggage and a 10-hour layover, Patricia and her staff welcomed us to leave our bags in their care, and then encouraged us to make use of their lounge. It's that level of customer service that sets the Glu apart from other hotels.

Room Tip: If you spend any significant time in your room be sure to book the third floor apartment with privat...

For those new in Palmero, it's the club / bar / outdoor dining suburb of Beunos Aires.

Rooms have block out curtains, good Aircon and the quaint sunroof terrace fits this stylishly interior hotel well.

The service is personal and efficient. Couldn't think of a flaw here. I like it.

Go one up and book the deluxe suite with private terrace road facing. Sublime / divine.

Patricia and her staff were wonderful. They gave us so much individual attention and the location could not have been better. The room was spacious, quiet (we were in the rear of the hotel not facing the street), clean and we walked everywhere. They provided maps and directions to every spot we mentioned. Little touches like providing electrical adaptors even before we asked were greatly appreciated. The shower was fantastic with plenty of hot water. Diego (the night manager) was equally nice and catered to all our needs. I would not hesitate to recommend The Glu Hotel to anyone.

We absolutely loved our stay at the Glu. In a world where boutique hotels tend to favor style over substance, the Glu offered both in spades. The staff offered truly personal and attentive service. We offhandedly mentioned to the staff that we are vegetarians. Next thing we knew they had listed and mapped out veg friendly restaurants for us that would also be baby friendly. They knew our son Henry by name and made him feel very comfortable. They proactively gave us great ideas and recommendations. At the same time the style was super! We stayed in the Glu Suite which was fabulous. It has a large private terrace with a view of a soccer field below. Others have mentioned issues with noise but we had none. The furnishings were quite nice as well. The Glu is in a great location. Not quite in the heart of the shopping of Palermo Viejo but a 5 minute walk to shopping and to Palermo Hollywood for dinner and nightlife. I have definitely found my go-to place for future trips to Buenos Aires!

Room Tip: Go for the Glu Suite if you are more than two or staying a few days - lots of room!
