“Take in the ambience of Argentina at this Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2014

Lovely unique Hotel & stay, every room a different charm, If you want to experience 19th century Argentina we found the charm here.Walked around area and did not feel uncomfortable, just a short distance away from the main shopping area therefore quiet, loved it, we stayed two nights before a cruise, felt totally relaxed,what lovely friendly hoteliers, couldn't do enough to help, nothing to much trouble giving sound advice to organising trips/ taxis. English spoken well. thanks to Virginia , who advised us on restaurants who cater for special dietary needs. Would definitely stay again,
Thank you for a charming stay

Room Tip: Courtyard upper rooms found plusher, larger . No lift, - Service: bags were taken from us directly...

Stayed at the Raco as a solo traveler. First of all the service was great. Providing directions, transportation advice and help booking tours. The room was very well
Decorated. The hotel is small and quiet in the boutique style. The only negative is that it is a bit away from the centre of attractions but only 3 blocks from an A line stop on the subte.

It was my first time in Buenos Aires, but it most certainly will not be my last. I fell in love with this amazing city! It has everything to offer. It immediately went into into my top 3 i favorite cities in the world! This Boutique hotel is adorable. It is so charming and the service was amazing. One night I went out partying which meant: hangover time the day after.... I ordered food with the staff and they went out and got it for me!
Room (I got a suite I think) was really nice, a bit chilly(was there in August), but perfect. Wifi worked great, breakfast was really nice and the subway is just around the corner. I will def. come back to BA and I will again book this nice hotel. I cannot wait to see the nice staff again!

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.

Room Tip: Rooms in the courtyard are lovely!

Dear guest,
Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We really appreciate your comments!

We would like to clarify certain things concerning our location. The importance of staying in a particular neighborhood has to do with your own interests. Many people come to Buenos Aires and think Palermo or Recoleta are the main spots, but actually the city has many other highlights and we happen to be in the middle of all of them. Opposite to areas such as Recoleta, San Telmo, or downtown, Racó de Buenos Aires is nestled in a calm and safe residential area (which makes to a good night’s sleep), only 3 blocks from the metro and a 15 min taxi ride to any of the interesting spots.

You may find restaurants, bars, and a large commercial area in the surroundings, the Basilica of San Carlos Borromeo (where the Pope was baptized), as well as parks, fairs, and access to several bus lines.

Delightful old building with lovely rooms. High ceilings give a very spacious feel. Wonderful bathroom and huge bed with lovely linen. Very helpful, friendly staff who gave is some great tips where to eat. Sadly we could only stay one night on this occasion, but would certainly stay again on another trip. A great find.

Very friendly and helpful staff. We stayed here several times. The rooms are individually decorated, clean and comfortable. Very central, well located in BA. Close to the subway and bus services. safe neighbourhood. convenient airport transfers at extra cost but worth it.

I am from U.S.and stayed in Hotel Raco in Buenos Aries the end of January 2014 for one week.
The room was very clean, nice bed, clean bathroom, with a/c. The staff was excellent as all of them spoke excellent English. The hotel, although small, was attended 24 hours a day. It was very secure and in a good neighborhood. I walked at all times of the night with no problems. It was a 15 minute taxi ride to Ricoleta, Palmero, or downtown. $4-$5 US depending on traffic. You can take the subway for .35 and catch it 2 blocks away. There are several great eating places and cafes within 3 blocks from hotel. A large mall is a 10 minute walk away. I would definitely stay here again..
