“Great hotel in a pleasant neighborhood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2007

If you enjoy an intimate, small B&B atmosphere, the BoBo is a must. We were treated like family by the young, energetic staff. By the time we left, we knew everyone by name. Our every need was joyfully and effortless fulfilled.

They only have 7 rooms in an old house which has been fully remodeled. While not large by some standards, the Minimalist room, #3, was quite adequate and with the deck space, gave us plenty of opportunity to spread out.

By the way, this is a non-smoking hotel, so there were no foul odors to disturb the quiet surroundings.

In addition to the rooms, there is a trendy, but not over-the-top restaurant where chef Sebastian creates some great fusion dishes. They have a special executive menu for lunch which is not only delicious but a real bargain. Where can you get a three course lunch (salad, entre & desert plus expresso) for $US6?

Again, the staff can not be praised enough. They wait table as well as serve guest needs and do it with class. Did I mention that they have a sommelier who at 24 years old has a passion for wine and the knowledge to match?

The location, in Palermo SoHo, is convenient, safe and loaded with other good resaurants. It's close to Centro, Recoleta and San Telmo (15 minute taxi ride $3-4).

It's definitely where we will stay when we return to BA. It books up often, so make reservations well ahead. If you want a touch of old world class in an up-to-date setting, the BoBo is the place.

Stayed February 2007

This is an excellent boutique hotel and I have been recommending it to all my friends. In a quiet, tree-lined, chi-chi neighbourhood, close to the metro, so easy access to down-town. A wonderful in-house restaurant, which serves delicious wine, yet with lots of food and drink alternatives within easy walking distance. Great breakfasts. Quiet, attentive service - they couldn't do enough for me. Elegant, modern decor. I was in room 1 on the front and did not have any problems with noise. Breakfasts are served from 8.30 so I wouldn't recommend this for business travellers.

  • Liked — The whole look of the place; the food and wine and the great service
  • Disliked — Everything was perfect
  • Tips/Secrets — Get the hotel to book you a seat at a soccer match in advance

on our way to the antartic we stayed 2 nights at the bobo hotel.
we booked the minimalist room. on our arrival ( 12.00 hrs) the room wasn't ready yet. it was available from 15.00 hrs ( keep this in mind esp. when you're arriving from a night flight). we couldn't have lunch in the hotel because there was a problem with the gas for the cooker. the reception gave us an address of a nice restaurant in the neighbourhood. unfortunately we also couldn't have dinner in the restaurant of the hotel because that night there was a private party.
we liked our room very much, it was very spacy and had a nice terrace. the breakfast was very nice as well.
we also liked the location of the hotel.

Bobo was ideal! Last year, we stayed in this same neighborhood, Palermo Soho, in another property, which was also quite nice, but Bobo's rooms and bathrooms are more comfortable and larger than competitors'. Ask for room #3, which is quite and has a balcony and lots of sunlight. We also stayed in #7, which is also called Argentinian, which has a larger bathroom and more windows, but the shower and room lay-out are more cramped. A friend stayed in room #1, and it was quite nice and faces the tree-lined street.

Reports here of noise from construction are blown out of proportion. The street does have some building, but this never disturbed us.

Bobo also has a nice bar/restaurant, and I'm happy to report that the portenos now have Grey Goose and Belvedere vodka to drink. Last year, Absolut vodka controlled distribution and we had to go as far as Alvear Palace for a decent martini.

The staff at Bobo is also helpful. They made excellent recommendations for places to eat off the beaten path.

  • Tips/Secrets — room #7, the most expensive, isn't the best room. we preferred room #3.

We stayed for a week in the Tecno Room which is at the back of the hotel, we did not had any trouble with noise, actually it was very quite. Location of the hotel is perfect, breakfast and food in the restaurant great. Wonderful and helpful staff! Best Hotel to stay in Palermo.

Back in BsAs, we have stayed at POP room, for two nights. Same exceptional wellcome, same attention. Incomparable. As a fan, I must admit, however, that the rooms facing the street are a little bit noisy, due to a building construction cross the street. It seems to start between 07:30 and 08:00 a.m.. You may have problems also if your room is located close to the restaurant, specially on weekends. Nevertheless, we decided to keep the "EXCELLENT" rate based on the overall experience. Being spoiled by Bellen, Julia, Vanesa, Maximilliano, Martin and Juan renews our faith in human kind. The "lemon champion" drink, the breakfast "media luna" and brownie help a lot, on that task.

  • Liked — the staff
  • Disliked — the noise that affects some rooms
  • Tips/Secrets — make reserves with antecipation + have a dinner at the hotels restaurant
