“Almost like a guest house.”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

This is no way a typical hotel with an grand entrance or even signage giving you any indication its a hotel. When we first got there we thought we had the wrong address to be honest. Once inside though its a different story. The hotel staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The owner himself speaks English being a former citizen of the USA but the others struggle with English but have some ability and they do go out of their way to help you. The rooms themselves are different to your usual hotel, concrete floors and the keys to the room and the entrance to the hotel were very unique. The area of Palermo this hotel is located in is quiet at night and there are fantastic restaurants and bars nearby as well. The owner went out of his way to provide a map they have prepared which shows all the local amenities and areas to see and went through with us in detail all the best areas to see. Its about a 15 minute walk from the nearest subway station though but taxis are also very cheap here we found. There is a steak restaurant just around the corner which I think is rated in the top 5 in the city and its a must to have dinner there but you need to book in advance due to its popularity. Plenty of elegant wine bars and restaurants, cafes and boutique shopping more for the ladies as well. Wifi was good in my room but average in my friends room but its free as well. Showers were a bit of a let down as the pressure and hot water were both inconsistent but the split system heater/cooler in the room was great and the rooms are kept very hygienic by the staff. Breakfast was nice as well and it was nice to be in a place where the staff always smile and greet you in a more natural sense than it being part of their job, they do seem to enjoy working there.

My partner and I stayed at boho rooms for 1 week and can only highly recommend this hotel. Rooms are basic but very comfortable with hot hot showers. Jose was the most friendly and helpful manager I have met and although he had only recently started working there, his knowledge and help on all matters was extraordinary and I recommend he gets a pay rise. Jose recommended for us to go to Montevideo and we had an excellent few days over there and left our main luggage in the reception whilst we were away. Would completely recommend this hotel to all travellers.

We stayed there for 3 nights, and it was a good experience overall. The rooms are very basic, but you have everything you need and most important of all, they are very clean. Our room overlooked the street, so it was a bit busy at night when you are trying to get some rest after a busy day of sightseeing. The wifi didn't reach our room, we had to go out of the room in the hall to catch some signal. It was not a big deal for us, we didn't really need it that much.
The guys who work there were amazing, super helpful and friendly, they helped us make a few arrangements and reservations, and also the taxi to the airport.
The breakfast was simple, but enough to start the day, and the common area where it was served was very homely.
The location is nice, we love Palermo. It does take a bit of walking though to reach the nearest metro station.
Would definitely recommend it, I have stayed in other places in BA, and this one is definitely a good choice.

We stayed for 3 nights in Boho. A very nice atmospher and decorated place.
It is located in the centre of Palmero on 4min to the Serrano square and shopping outlets. Nearby subway is on Plaza Italia 15min by foot. We mostly took the bus. You can buy the Sube card in a kiosk, very cheap.
Staff is very helpfull (thank you Julio). Breakfast is nice but simple.
Ask for the rooms at the backside.

We stayed at the boho rooms for 4 nights. The location is great, you are only a 2min walk away from Plaza Serrano in the heart of Palermo.
Marcelo was super friendly and very customer-oriented. We are vegans and since breakfast was included he told us to shop our own almond milk and avocados (or whatever vegans eat), bring the receipt so he could pay back. The staff really went out of their way to make our stay pleasant.
The room was very large and clean and decorated with neat details. The shabby chic look gives the hotel a feeling of being at home.
We were even allowed to take a shower before catching our flight in the late afternoon.
Boho rooms really care about their customers and are the place to stay at in Buenos Aires!

As per the other reviews, this place is very tastefully decorated and has a very welcoming vibe. It's all about class and is not ostentatious. The breakfast room in particular is quite lovely with its many little glass window panes and pastel colours as well as a couch to read a book on if you're into that. Our room was quite large with fresh, simple furnishings. As far as I could see, each room opens to an outdoor courtyard/staircase that is lovely, bright and airy.

This is not the place to go if you're wanting all of the usual hotel amenities like mini bathroom shampoos and conditioners, fancy reception desk manned 24/7 and deep pile carpet (in fact our room had polished concrete floors). You're paying for the relaxed, welcoming atmosphere (we are told 'my house is your house' by the staff member when we arrived), the excellent location and the carefully considered decor.
