“Ready to return”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2014

We were about ready to leave Buenos Aires when we came across this gem of a hotel.
After checking in, we decided to extend our stay in the city. The location is excellent and the staff could not have been more friendly and hospitable. You will feel like you are staying with friends instead of a hotel. We hope to return soon.

Room Tip: They offer different options of sleeping arrangements depending on your requirements and budget.

This gay owned and operated hotel is a true gem. It is beautiful old building. The staff is really helpful and friendly, the location is great. Clubs and bars are a short taxi/metro ride away. There are tango lessons on the roof top. Definitely would go back there!

It is always good to climb the stairs to find the warm and welcoming staff amist the energy of San Telmo. A very special place that upon returning gives a 'coming home' experience. Good access to anywhere and the Sunday Market is at the doorstep. Typically find other guests to be friendly and sincere. A treat to be in this old mansion with its modern rooftop. Well done!

Visited BA with my partner for the first time - Lugar is THE place to stay - you get to know the hosts, Santos, Nito and Javier really well, they are super nice guys that are very helpful! You also get to meet other wonderful guests, the place seems to attract really nice and friendly people. Location is perfect in San Telmo. Outdoor decks are great for relaxing after a long day touring BA. We will definitely be back!!

Room Tip: Ask about which rooms have operable windows if you want a good cross breeze.

Lugar Gay is one of the best gay guesthouses world-wide. Situated very central in San Telmo. Everyting in Buenos Aires is easily reachable from there. Their nice idea is a happy hour in the early evening. It is not important to get their free drinks and snacks - the most important thing is that you can get in touch with other people from all over the world staying in the guesthouse. We stayed there the third time and also made good friends. Staff (Nico, Xavier & Santo) are always ready to help in any situation. There wlll be no doubt that we will return, whenever we will be in Buenos Aires. Unfortunately it is not just around the corner for us.

Room Tip: all rooms we had were about the same level, not luxury, but good. All rooms are quiet.

Been there 3 times with my husband over the last 7 years. It is always very friendly, feels like Nito, Xavier and Santo are like best friends. Place is spotless and super well located. And as always we meet people.

Don't miss Nito's happy hour.

Will go back again soon.
