“Feel like a celeb in this swish hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2014

This boutique hotel is in Palermo Hollywood, not Palermo Soho, where you will want to be. You can get to Palermo Soho in a short walk.

The rooms are large, comfortable, beautifully furnished and decorated. Good linens and towels, cosmetics, Nespresso machine in room.

Eight floors, with a shallow pool on a deck on the 7th floor. 8th floor room has big terrace and hot tub overlooking the BA skyline, for soaking in the summer nights. Four rooms on 1st floor also have balconies, but no hot tub.

Elegant a la carte breakfast included in resto downstairs. For lunch and dinner, the resto becomes a gourmet experience--a BA destination.

Tip: not too many fat people in elevator. We let some fat people in, exceeded the weight limit, and the elevator would not move and had to be re-set...so everyone, including the fat people, had to walk upstairs. Good for them!

Fierro will be high on my list of hotels for my next BA trip!

Room Tip: see review. Get the 8th floor room if you don't mind paying a bit more. Can't find a bad r...

We stayed at the Fiero for five (non-consecutive) nights during the hottest December in BA in 40 years. The rooms were bright, clean, practical with a nice amount of space - and most, importantly, cool. We always looked forward to returning after a day of sightseeing in the hot city. All of the staff were professional and caring and friendly. When our taxi to the airport failed to show up, the woman at the front desk ran to the streets to find one for us. Moreover, because the route to the airport had to be changed - due to street closures/demonstrations - the front desk negotiated with the taxi driver. We felt reassured that we were safe and not being taken advantage of. We were very thankful for their assistance during a stressful time. Breakfast was delicious and ample. Our loss b/c we did not have dinner there. It is a destination dinner spot for Portenos.

Room Tip: We followed others' advice and got rooms in the back, off the street.

The Fierro Hotel is a fabulous boutique hotel in the heart of Palermo - ideally located. The Hotel has many superb features, such as 1. Service - I have never had better! 2. Rooms - as good as any you would find in the best of the major well known hotels. Fierro rooms have all the installations you would wish for and have a delightful style and well as the most comfortable beds and pillows. 3. Super cool small pool on the top floor 4. Awarded one of the top 50 restaurants in Latin America - Hernan Gipponi - amazing food, amazing style, amazing waiters. 5. And to top it all a unique and varied wine selection. 6. And lastly they have the coolest Happy Hour every other Friday in their very pretty little garden.
We have been to the Fierro several times over the last year or so ...... to enjoy the Happy Hours, to enjoy a wonderful meal etc, however this last visit (a surprise for my Birthday) I went with my wife and two daughters. We stayed two nights and loved every moment in the hotel and also enjoyed it's perfect location in Palermo. Thank you all the staff there, thank you Hernan Gipponi and thank you Martin Fierro! So looking forward to coming back!

Room Tip: Just go there. Enjoy the Hotel and the wonderful Hernan Gipponi restaurant.

Our agent recommended this hotel in Buenos Aires and we were delighted with his choice. Our room was well appointed and comfortable with a good shower. The staff were welcoming and helpful and we loved the breakfast. We were very sorry that we did not have a second night there to eat dinner in the restaurant.

Fierro Hotel is a nice boutique hotel, located in the hippest region of Buenos Aires - Palermo. Its surrounding is calm and safe (even at night you can go for a walk with no worries). The hotel is well decorated and confortable. The staff is nice and helpful. Has a small pool on the roof top (you can't swim in it). Breakfast is great.

My girlfriend and I checked into the Fierro Hotel at approximately 0500 after our flight was cancelled and we got a last minute bus to Buenos Aires. The staff was waiting to help us with our bags and facilitate a quick check-in. This was an indicator of the rest of our stay here. The staff continued to be very helpful, friendly, funny and gave us some great recommendations on where to go out, to get wine, etc.

The room:
The room was very nice - well maintained, the layout was pleasing, we had a cute little balcony and the king-sized bed was VERY comfortable. The shower was great, the room was clean and well stocked, and the nuts from the mini-bar make a great snack when you're drunk at 5am from the bars.

The area:
The area is nice. We walked around a bit and enjoyed the cafes/restaurants and shopping nearby. It is a bit of a walk to some of the more popular areas of Palermo, but nothing too much and it's a short cab ride when you're wearing heels.

We did not get a chance to try the restaurant so I cannot comment on the food. The pool area is very small but cozy. We spent a relaxing afternoon laying in the chairs and enjoying some sun. The sauna was also nice and clean, and a good way to relax.

Would I recommend this hotel to my friends:
absolutely

I stayed at Fierro Hotel for a few days, during the second part of my trip to the city, and found both pros and cons to my visit.

* The staff was very friendly and helpful. We visited during the heatwave, and they proactively told us that the hotel had a generator so it wouldn't be a problem if the hotel lost power. That was a nice assurance right from the start. They also arranged for us to get a 7pm checkout (with a fee) the day we left, which was spectacular to have before our 10:30pm flight. They also quickly set up our taxi to the airport.

* The room was large and spacious, though it felt somewhat sterile in terms of atmosphere. The bathroom had a really great shower - with both a rain shower & regular shower head. I had to call and ask for additional toiletries because they weren't replaced during our room cleaning, but they were promptly provided upon request.

* Breakfast could be considered good or bad, depending on what you like. It's inventive and there are many pieces to it, but out of what was served there wasn't much that suited my tastes. And because it's the same every day, I always left a little hungry.

* I didn't find the hotel location particularly charming. Also, the hotel is a good 15-20 minute walk to the livelier parts of Palermo.

Most of what I found lacking comes down to my personal taste, so while not a bad hotel, I probably wouldn't return.
