We traveled with our 7 and 9 year old and got the triple above the office (the 7 year old never minds sleeping on the floor, but we did use the toddler mattress they offered). This room used to be the playroom of the family that owned the house before the Italian family purchased and renovated it. It is beautiful - wood furnishings, floor and window settings - overlooks the lush, flowered courtyard. It feels like you are in a country villa with the combination of brick, wood and bougainvilla.
The Italian owners and their Argentinian staff are very friendly and helpful - they even shared some mate with us.
The section of town is perfect if you want to be in Palermo, the tree-lined, residential section of town for middle and upper middle class families. Families, pensioners, single women and men walk the streets at all times of day and evening. It´s very safe, and it´s a nice walk to Plaza Serrano and Palermo Viejo. Ask about the family steak restaurant down the street for the locals. It opens at 8:30pm, has a tiny store front that is not signed, and has wonderful parrilla at good prices with a homey atmosphere. (0% English, so make sure to get recommendations from Gaston at Rugantino).
Hire a remise from the airport for 150 pesos.
B.A. was the first stop on our South American tour, and Hotel Rugantino was the perfect introduction. I would recommend it for families, couples or individuals who like boutique hotels.
