“Very charming vacation hotel”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

Magnolia Hotel is a very charming hotel with extremely friendly service. Rooms are well equipped, especially for holiday guests. The hotel is well-located being only a few blocks from Plaza Armenia, a lively square with a lot of restaurants and a Sunday market. Breakfast is very well done. The hotel has an outstanding roof-top terrace with great views (although wifi does not work up there). The only thing that I would criticize is that the walls are quite thin and thus rooms can be noisy. For business travellers the lack of a proper desk and chair to sit and work can be an obstacle.

Room Tip: I would not recommend the rooms on the ground floor, since very close to breakfast room

I stayed at Magnolia Hotel for five nights, and had a fantastic stay. It is in a perfect location in Palermo Soho, a couple blocks from the main shopping / dining area, and convenient for anything else you may need (grocery store, ATM, taxis, etc.). By American standards, the room was nothing fancy, but still perfectly fine, and for the price it was definitely a great value. And all of the amenities (shower, bathroom) were modern, clean, and nice. What really made the Duque so great was the staff.

My wife and I stayed at this charming little hotel for 4 nights and couldn't of been happier. From the moment we arrived we could go straight to our room, which having just done an overnight flight was a blessing as we were about 3 hours early! The rooms are spacious and done out in traditional colonial Argentinian style. The bed was huge and very comfortable and there's a cool little Juliet balcony to go out on. The staff were more than friendly and were always willing to help with everything from tango show bookings to advice on local bars etc. This a great chic neighbourhood and a great base for exploring BA, thoughrely recommend!

I had the most amazing visit to this small little boutique hotel. More than the actual beauty, the kind and gracious staff are an extra amenity. Each room is carefully appointed with comfortable beds, soft sheets, big towels, and the art is unique and adds to the lovely style of the place. The breakfast is lovely and the staff attentive to your diet and needs. The staff will take care of all of your tour bookings, rides to the airport and tell you everything you need to know for getting around BsAs. My friends who were at other hotels were impressed and jealous they were not staying there. Anyone who stays here will be very happy they did.

Room Tip: There are only 8 rooms in the hotel, every room is a good choice.

My wife and I could not have found a better place to stay. The Hotel is beautiful, clean, and with all the amenities one can hope for. The staff was top notch in handling our questions, and needs as first timers to the city. Its location in Soho Palermo, is great for getting a wonderful feel of a great city and its neighborhoods. Would highly recommend this establishment to anyone if they are planning to visit Buenos Aires.

Super staff, who couldn't offer more help (in marked contrast to the rest our hotel stays in Argentina). Very kindly let us in early after an overnight flight with a bottle of champagne left to celebrate our honeymoon.

Lovely hotel - traditionally and sympathetically restored. Great roof terrace for when the sun shines and ample breakfast.

Two very minor downsides - noise from the lobby as noted by a previous reviewer, carried by wooden floors. Our first floor room was directly above reception and so we woke up with the first ring of the door bell - as early as 6.30am.

I would definitely recommend this hotel though. We really needed and appreciated the help and guidance the staff gave us on the City.

Room Tip: Ask for one away from reception, on the other side of the courtyard if you're a light sleeper.
