Hotel Boutique Raco de Buenos Aires
Ranked #161 of 443 Hotels in Buenos Aires
Reviewed 7 January 2014

Loved our stay at this hotel. We took a family vacation to Buenos Aires, me with my father and mother, and had a great time in the city, but also loved this hotel. Breakfast was the perfect amount of food, the staff was always attentive and very nice, and the room was always clean. The hotel decor was fun and interesting, funky and comfortable. From the outside, you wouldn't even have known it was a hotel, which just made you feel more immersed in to the city itself. the neighborhood Racor is in was a great location, close to everything we wanted to see, but a little off the beaten path so it was quiet, and it was a safe area.

We stayed 8 nights in the hotel and really enjoyed it. The hotel staff is very engaged and carrying about the guests, Our room on the first floor very quiet e abolutely clean. Maybe a frigobar could be useful. The breakfeast is fresh and delicous but because we wanted to discover the area, we went often outside to test other bars/restaurants. The location is very good, safe and also quiet. You'll find many restaurants in a 15min walk around. The undergrond 'subte' is 5 min by feet and leads to all important areas. Taxi is about 30 pesos to Palermo, a famous quater for shopping and buying nice gifts. We'll return for sure.

Room Tip: room number 11 is really good.

We had a great stay at Raco de Buenos Aires. The staff is friendly and helpful and they all speak English very well. The building has been remodeled as a hotel and it is true to its architecture of early twentieth century. Marble stairs and beautiful old doors. The patio is quiet and pretty. It was quite hot so we didn't use it much. The air conditioning in our room and elsewhere in the hotel worked very well. We had an upstairs room with a balcony. Well worth the extra money. We enjoyed the neighborhood and went to Boeda Ave. for dinner a couple of times. We enjoyed Cafe Margot. We also enjoyed Las Violettas for drinks, coffee, and high tea.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony

I stayed there in August with my husband for 5 days. It's a small hotel, kind of far from the city center, but just what we needed. The room is spacious, the AC works perfectly, the shower is great. The staff is very polite and helpfull and extremely honest! I would definetly stay there again and recommed to all my friends!

While a little strange that the hotel is identified by nothing more than an address, don't let the lack of exterior flash dissuade your booking this hotel. The staff greeted us warmly at the door even though it was nearly midnight. They hauled our bags to the room while we checked in and made us feel as though we were at our home away from home.
The modernized 1904 building was classic on the outside and classically modern inside.
The hotel is a little out of the way and requires a bit of courage in braving the Subte (Subway), but it is a mere three short blocks from the Carlos Barros station, right by the Violettes restaurant recommended by the staff for a traditional Buenos Aries breakfast; we started our day here. The subway provided access to large swaths of the city and was cheap; those places a little out of the way,catch a taxi.
Along with a great room, the staff offered some interesting and unusual sights, for instance the largest bookstore in town; its an old theater with the books lining the balconies; a great stop for the bibliophile.
I have already recommending the Raco to friends who might go to Buenos Aires.

Warmly welcomed on my arrival and my room was awaiting. The front desk staff provided maps, advice, directions, and dining suggestions. The room was large and comfortable with an up to date/new bathroom. Although breakfast was not included in my room rate, after i offered to pay, it was provided and then delivered on a tray to the lovely courtyard. It was a peaceful way to start the day and much appreciated. A few blocks walk takes you a lively avenue of shops and dining options. The Saturday afternoon of my arrival, a local school was having an activity and so many parents and school children were about. International clientele at the hotel.

Room Tip: Perhaps a room on an upper floor although it was nice to have a room just steps away from the courty...

It's true that this location is a little out of the way. But if you are willing to take the subway (which you should), this is very close to the station. There is about a three block walk from the station to the hotel but the walk is not a big deal. A couple of other reviews will note that the area can be sketchy at night and while it's true that it's a little rough I wouldn't call it dangerous. You will see a homeless person or two on several other streets in BA.

The staff here is absolutely fantastic! They will give you great advice on how to visit the key sites and which local restaurants to visit. They speak excellent English and will help you with whatever you need. It's clear that they take a personal interest in your stay and want you to have a very positive experience.

The breakfast is not luxurious but it is more than what you would expect given the very reasonable daily rate for room and board. There's a great breakfast cafe and sweet shop not far if you want a different breakfast. It's a MUST visit.

The rooms are very nice and have a fair amount of character. Our room was spacious and the bed was very comfortable. The shower was excellent and since we had recently emerged from Bolivia it was particularly important to us.

You will definitely enjoy your stay here. It's a five star property but the distance away from the sites pulls it just below five stars for me. But, I would definitely definitely stay here again.
