We booked at Magnolia almost by accident but were extremely glad we did! Beautiful hotel with even better service! We would especially like to thank Francisco and Ezekiel for helping us to plan out and execute one of hopefully many visits in the future to Buenos Aires!

Lovely hotel with very helpful, engaging staff. Our room was large with a private patio. We woke up every morning to the sounds of birds singing. Great space on the roof to have drinks and watch the sun go down. Did not like the location. I thought Palermo have some charm. It does not. Great restaurant, Las pizzarras in walking distance.

Thank you so much for writing!

Birds are still singing around here, we remember how fascinated you were by them. We became more aware after your comment. It is amazing how it is when you get used to something… you just stop noticing how great it is!
We are sorry to read you did not find Palermo Soho area attractive. The area is much different from downtown since it is more quiet without the offices banks and companies but still lively with bars, restaurants, chic & trendy boutiques, independent designers, parks. We feel sad that it was not what you expected, we do hope you enjoyed your time getting to know our city in spite of it.

We wich you all the best!

This was our first trip to Argentina and we booked 6 nights at the Magnolia as a starting point, however we felt so at home in this gorgeous, friendly, special little hotel we ended up staying for 2 weeks. We couldn't imagine moving on or finding anything that could possibly be nicer so we just kept extending our stay a few nights at a time and were very lucky that we could be accommodated by the wonderful staff each time. It really felt like we were staying in a private house and were always welcomed by a familiar friendly face every time we rang the bell whether it was 4pm or 4am ( we really embraced the night life in BA!) Magnolia's attention to detail was just perfect in every way and the staff couldn't have been more helpful or friendly.For a first trip to BA the hotel couldn't be better positioned close to the centre of Palermo Soho with all it's lovely bars and restaurants as well as easy walking distance to the underground and parks.
We fell in love with Buenos Aires and will definitely be back next autumn and can't imagine wanting to stay anywhere else.

As seasoned travelers we can be easily disappointed. Not so at the Magnolia Hotel. It is by far the best small hotel at which we have stayed. It is located in a quiet neighborhood yet within easy reach of all the big city amenities. It is tastefully decorated and has a pleasant ambiance. The best part of the decor is the assiduously attentive staff who are a fount of information about the city. They go the extra mile to make you feel comfortable. Don't expect the brush off here. We enjoyed a sumptuous breakfast on our schedule in the morning and an afternoon glass of wine before going out for the evening. We felt totally relaxed. The Magnolia gets our highest recommendation.

We have stayed at the Magnolia 3 times now in the past 4 years. We always go in October.
This year, we went to Europe instead of Buenos Aires, and we came across some very nice hotels and incredibly charming boutique hotels, but the Magnolia always sets the standard and the bar, at the very top whenever we are traveling. We always appreciate them, but we appreciate them much more after we travel to other places! We wish there was a Magnolia in every country that we visit!
We will be in Buenos Aires again next year, and there is no place that we would ever stay other than the Magnolia.
Its not only that we have gotten to know them and the entire staff over the years, but its because of how beautiful the place is and how it is kept up. The attention to detail is always there and it only gets better each time we are there, if it can get any better. Its always perfect.
Year after year when we write about them on TA, or tell people about them, we always say that their personnel is over the top, The Best. They are truly the nicest and the best. Its always sad when we have to leave them. It does really feel like our home away from home. Maria really has The Best people working there. Thank you Maria and Magnolia, we miss you, and we will definitely see you next year in October!!! Bill and Sheryl

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.
