The Hotel Raco was a lovely place to stay in Buenos Aires. We spent three nights here during our 2-week trip in Argentina, and it was the best nights of sleep for the whole trip. The hotel itself is beautifully designed, peaceful, and the staff is incredibly helpful, from exchanging money to reserving tickets to a tango show.
We also got an excellent deal on our stay because of Trip Advisor discount, so be sure to email them to see if you can take advantage from it.
We found the surrounding work-a-day neighborhood to be short on charm that you will find in Palermo or Recoleta, and would have been disappointed if this was our first perspective of BA. It's not close to the trendier neighborhoods with restaurants and cultural sights, but taxis are plentiful and very cheap. But the hotel is reasonably close to the subway, and here you are among real porteños.
If you're looking for a great boutique hotel for a good night's sleep, this is a great place. If you're looking for a great neighborhood, keep looking.
