“Perfecto”
Reviewed 7 December 2013

Staying at BA Sohotel was delightful. The staff was kind, knowledgable, professional and extremely accommodating. This comfy and modern hotel is located in the trendy area of Palermo Soho with lots of wonderful boutiques and restaurants, all within walking distance. Every part of the hotel is clean and bright! My wife and I stayed in a corner room with a large private balcony on the 7th floor, and we spent a lot of time out on the balcony soaking in the sounds, smells & sights of beautiful Buenos Aires. We love it here in Argentina, and BA Sohotel made us love it even more.

Room Tip: Corner suites are large and sunny, ask for room # 72

Huge room with a nice firm mattress and good pillows, breakfast was fine (not opulent, but sufficient and fresh), location is great. It's also very well-staffed.

I enjoyed relaxing by the pool when it got very hot outside. The only minus is that the exercise equipment is located outdoors by the pool. It was WAY too hot to be using the treadmill outside, even in the morning.

Room Tip: Room 14 is right by the patio AND right by the wireless router. We had no problems with the internet...

We stayed in the BA Sohotel for 9 nights at the end of November. It is located in a good, safe area with quite a few shops, cafes and restaurants nearby. Also close to subway, though we didn't use it. Hotel is modern, airy and has all the amenities needed. Rooms are spacious and of good quality and free wi-fi throughout the hotel is a great bonus for staying in touch. The restaurant attached to the hotel is pretty good and reasonably priced. However the best thing about the hotel is the staff - all of them were warm, friendly, helpful and provided excellent service. Quite a few speak excellent English. I would happily stay here again.

Lots of pros to the hotel and some cons.....

Firstly, and most importantly, the hotel was well located. Maybe 8-10 blocks from shopping streets and various restaurants and about 4-5 blocks from the subway in Plaza Italia.

Both the exterior and interior of the hotel seems to be fairly new, well decorated and clean. The rooms were huge. We had two double beds and plenty of space. I would say the one thing missing is probably drawers for clothing. There were a few hangers in a small closet but not enough for 2 people. Bathroom was also a good size and clean. A cute little balcony with a few chairs was also nice to have.

The service is also very good. The staff at the front desk as well as the breakfast area were very nice and helpful! It definitely made our stay more enjoyable.

Breakfast was simple, as everyone else mentioned. However, based on what we saw for the rest of trip, I thought it was actually quite good. They offer eggs, fruit, various pastries, coldcuts and cheese. Totally sufficient!

My only big complaint - and I brought to the attention of front desk on several occasions - was the WIFI. Never worked in the room and when it did it was for a minute or so and then it would disappear. Very frustrating!!! They need to get that fixed.

Also, if you are prepaying, beware that even though they quote the hotel in US dollars on the website, they charge your credit card in pesos. With the Argentine peso exchange rate charged by your home bank, you'll be paying a lot more than if you paid cash at the hotel.

If they can get Wifi fixed, I would definitely stay at this hotel again!!

I really loved the BA Sohotel. It was small enough to provide excellent personal service. Neither my travelling companion nor I spoke much Spanish but thanks to the helpful people at the desk of this hotel, we were able to see many of the sights in this beautiful city without much difficulty at all. We were provided with maps and detailed explanations about subway lines, buses, museum times and prices, and even how to request a certain type of cold medicine at the pharmacy. Everyone on the staff was friendly and competent. The room was large, elegant, and very clean. We ate dinner at the restaurant one evening and the food was very good and reasonably priced. I would stay here again if I ever visit this city again.

Room Tip: I loved our room in the front with a balcony overlooking the street.

We stayed at BA Sohotel for a couple of days and found the hotel staff to be courteous and extremely helpful with everything we needed. Good location with shops and cafes nearby. The hotel was very clean and on trend with the new updates/renovations.

Room Tip: Our room had a balcony over-looking the city.

I’m a stickler for bathroom maintenance so I will begin by saying the bathroom was both reasonably sized and very clean. It also had a shower screen (in place of a shower curtain) which is a win for me! Rooms are reasonably sized and are well maintained. The street noise – both auto and pedestrian traffic – is audible in the room so if you are sensitive to this, I’d suggest requesting a room at the back of the hotel. Location is good; just a short walk to the shopping and food hub of Palermo Soho. Service is amazing; employees are so helpful and lovely to talk to. Breakfast is nice, although simple. Hotel restaurant serves lovely Italian food at a reasonable price and is a good option when you are too tired or lazy to venture any further. Wifi was inconsistent. It was always available in the lobby but was disappointing and unreliable in the room.
