My husband and I visited Buenos Aires in June 2013 and stayed at the Petit Hotel El Vitraux after reading numerous good reviews on tripadvisor. We were not disappointed. By the time we got there it was the end of our trip, we were already traveling for quite a while, and we were very tired. But Elena and Mike made us feel so at home that I wished we could stay longer than 2 nights. They have two adorable cats which they keep out of the way if you are not a cat person, but since I am, Elena let me cuddle them as much as possible!
It is a very cosy place and the breakfast each morning was delicious. Elena and Mike are both brilliant people and VERY helpful with everything and they helped us pick out a tango show to attend. Elena gave us a map and spent a lot of time helping us find good places to go.
The location is great ... in the San Telmo neighborhood and you can pretty much walk to La Boca (although I would recommend taking a bus). From San Telmo you can also take a metro to Palermo and some of the other neighborhoods.
It is very good value for money to stay here and they even give you a key to the house if you want to come in late after a dinner or tango show.
We loved staying here and would definitely recommend this place to anyone going to Buenos Aires!
