“Special place”
Reviewed 1 March 2014 via mobile

Just to give you an idea of the warmth found in this home: it was pouring with rain on one of the mornings we stayed at the Petit Hotel. Four of us guests sat at the breakfast table from 9.30am till 1.30pm chatting with Elena and Mike just having a chilled time.
The rooms are beautiful.
The dynamic is magic

Stayed January 2014, travelled with family

Mike and Elena are not only the best hosts, but also the nicest people you can imagine.
I do not feel like words can describe how happy I am to have chosen this place.
Meeting them was a really enriching and unforgettable experience for me, which did contribute a lot to my positive impression of Buenos Aires.

To keep it short and a little pragmatic, I agree with all of the good reviews.
All the facilities are clean and tidy, the rooms are super-cute and the breakfast is rich with different breads, cereals, yoghurt etc.

The location is not too central, but in a safe area very near to a metro station, from where one gets to all the sightseeing places within less than 10 to 15 minutes.

Finally as already written above, the hosts are the best you can get. They will help you with anything and won't hesitate to make a dozen phonecalls to reserve tango shows, guided tours or other stuff for you. Also their knowledge of the city is really broad and can be very helpful if one would like to go to places which are not too touristy.

Bottom line: ABSOLUTE RECOMMENDATION!

I stayed three nights with Mike and Elena and had a great time. They really make the place special, it was like staying with friends. The hotel is beautiful, tastefully decorated and very clean. They were extremely helpful, answering questions, making suggestions, assisting with cashing money, pointing me to the local laundromat,etc. Breakfast was great, and it was enjoyable sitting around the table in the mornings meeting the other guests. In the evening we would share a bottle of wine and one evening went out to Pallermo for drinks until the wee hours. If you are looking to make connections and friends in B.A. I would highly recommend staying with Mike and Elena, it was one of the highlights of my trip!

My husband and I came a day before our check-in to see the place and neighborhood, and we were pleasantly surprised to see just how beautiful and nice the place was. Elena and mike were amazing, they helped us with everything we needed, gave great advice and were just a pleasure to talk with. After sleeping in dorm-room hostels for three weeks, this was no doubt the best way to end our trip, in a warm, clean, friendly and much more personal place.
We will surely stay there again next time we get to Buenos Aires!!
Thank you so much for everything!!

Mike and Elena deserve all the glowing reviews. They're so genuinely concerned for your happiness, going far above and beyond to make sure you've planned your day well, changed your money at an advantageous rate, and caffeinated before hitting the streets. I can't remember feeling better hosted anywhere.

The property is elegant and quirky, with large rooms and a lovely little interior patio. Since there are only three rooms, the shared bathrooms never posed a problem. You're right in the middle of a real neighborhood, with nothing explicitly touristy near you, yet it's only a few short blocks to the Subte, minutes to several buses that'll whisk you all over the city, and only 10-15 minutes to San Telmo, which if you like a funky place like El Vitraux is probably going to be your favorite neighborhood.

We had such a great stay at El Vitraux! Elena and Mike are super helpful, funny and friendly. We booked the green room, which is more like a suite! You have your own sofa in the room, chandeliers, fast wifi, great bed, bath robes - wow more 4* hotel then 'petit hotel'.

Great location to visit all the popular spots - we even walked to the Sunday San Telmo market! Mike advised us to rent bicycles further in San Telmo, which was a really cool way to explore - only for brave cyclists though! ;)

We were telling Mike and Elena about our dream to stay at an estancia, and they were incredible: they arranged a great option within an hour, including the transport there. They also helped with booking a tango show.

So you get 5* service at this place - highly recommended!
