Magnolia Hotel Boutique
Ranked #14 of 443 Hotels in Buenos Aires
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 October 2013

The Magnolia hotel was a perfect base for our 12 day trip from the US to Argentina in October 2013 to visit our daughter who is currently living in Palermo Soho. We stayed three different times during our trip (as we visited Bariloche and Iguazu as well) and always felt welcomed and at home. We have traveled a lot and don't give excellent reviews such as this lightly. Every amenity in the hotel is spotless and comfortable (beds, rooms, bathrooms, common spaces, charming outdoor terraces, especially on the roof, breakfast eating area, internet access). There are several aspects of this hotel that set it above others in Buenos Aires and the Palermo area, although there are really too many to list. Here are a few: the incredibly helpful, welcoming and professional staff; the breakfasts (delicious and simple); the architecture of the building and common spaces (interesting, historical yet upscale without being ostentatious, light, airy and well maintained); the rooms and beds (very comfortable, very well appointed); the bathrooms (modern, clean, excellent water pressure and availability of hot water, well appointed); the location (walking distance to restaurants, shops and sightseeing locations in Palermo Soho, Palermo Hollywood, and Recoleta, but on a relatively quiet street in an often otherwise noisy and busy city); reasonably priced. The hotel owner and staff care deeply about providing a hospitable stay for all their guests, so much so that they gave us an upgrade and let our daughter stay over with us on our last night in Argentina. It doesn't get much better than this.

Room Tip: Recommend a room facing away from the street. These rooms have lovely views and/or walk out to nice...

I spent 5 nights at Magnolia on a mainly work/ part holiday trip. Fantastic hotel, in a beautiful old house in a great spot in the city. Staff were incredibly helpful and home cooked breakfasts a delight. Ten minute walk to the subway, 5 minutes to good cafes and restaurants. Highly recommend it.

We stayed 9 nights at Magnolia and as a base for our BA experience it could not be faulted. The intimacy of the hotel it's staff and owner made for a very relaxed and trouble free stay. A lovely spacious room, comfortable bed, great inclusive breakfast every morning, a glass of wine and toasted sandwich when we came in late, all the help we needed with restaurants and transport bookings. A great team, warm, welcoming and attentive. Would love to return"

Hi James!

Thank you for all the compliments. You all were a great team to have staying with us! Very fun and easy going. We really enjoyed having you all.
We are all enjoying our souvenirs too. Natalia said she would try cooking the recipe on the cloth, lets see what comes out of that! And I think Exequiel finished the honey before you were out of the front door. LOL
Too bad you almost lost that rugby match against us in La Plata..... :P

Kindest regards to you all!!

We do hope we get to see you again.

We stayed just one night at Inn at Magnolia hotel and were very happy. The staff were excellent and very helpful offering great advice. The rooms were very spacious, clean with a lovely fresh retro decor.
We loved the location, so close to the action on Palermo soho.

We would definitely stay here again.

We were in Buenos Aires in January to visit my daughter. The hotel was small but very nice. The staff would go out of their way to help in any way possible. They would make reservations, call cabs, order delivery food for us, and make suggestions and take care of our needs.

My family stayed at the Magnolia Boutique Hotel in early August. We could not have had a better experience. We knew we wanted to stay in Palermo, and were afraid it might be noisy. But this was not the case--the hotel is really quiet. Also, we were able to have two connecting rooms--one for the kids, one for us. The connecting rooms even had their own entrance so we felt very private. Also, both rooms had little patios. While the decor in the Magnolia was very clean and absolutely beautiful--attention was paid to every design detail--what sets this hotel apart from others in our experience is the staff. They were so helpful and patient and knowledgable about any question we had. They were all young and very familiar with Buenos Aires and didn't have any attitude. They helped us with anything we needed. And the breakfast included in the hotel rate was delicious. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a boutique hotel experience in Buenos Aires.

We stayed for 6 nights in the terraza room in the Magnolia for our first visit to Buenos Aires. Everything about the stay was perfect. Best of all was the friendliness, warmth and expertise of the reception staff: Natalia, Ezekiel and Francisco. Added to that were delicious and relaxed breakfast daily, excellent shower and clean room, rooftop terrace, welcoming drink, and convenient location in the city. Wonderful home away from home for couples or families!
