“perfect location”
Reviewed 4 January 2010

The perfect location in Palermo! everything in walking distance, great shopping and excellent restaurants. Hotel has a very nice and relax atmosphere.
The rooms are perfect, we stayed in a medium room, fantastic beds and bathroom. Breakfast is on the rooftop terrace and is great. The people who work here are very friendly and very helpful.
Highly recommended!

Reviewed 30 November 2009

We stayed here while in B.A. recently. Using their awesome website as a reference point, the hotel was a deception. Four years into it and it's already looking tired and they need to repaint many of the walls (visible dirt and skidmarks, for example). The general feel is one of a hostel but with hotel prices. This wasn't worth USD 125 a night for the smallest room type. However, not all was lost. The staff were very friendly, helpful and eager to help at any time. And the rooms/bathrooms were immaculate and, although our room was the tiny kind, we knew it in advance and we were at peace with this. And the beds and sheets are all *really* comfortable, at luxury level. The breakfast was ok but nothing special. The location in Palermo SoHo is perfect, needless to say. All in all, the proprietors of this hotel need to take stock that something better needs to be done if they are to continue charging these rates.

Great hotel with a fabulous location... you really can't get any better if you want to enjoy the restaurants, shopping, nightlife and fun that BA has to offer.

My only complaint was that achingly cool is great - however that meant the staff sometimes seemed a little disinterested. It wasn't that they were unfriendly, they were just, well a bit too cool...

All that said, we had a relaxing stay, and I'd really recommend the football trips they organise to watch a River Plate game too.

We have stayed at Five Cool Rooms twice, the second time in November 2008 for eight nights. It is one of the best locations for shopping and going out, though Palermo is far from downtown and other sights in BA. Taxis are still cheap, so it is not too much of an issue. Both times we stayed in a medium room, which is a bit more expensive, but the small rooms are seriously small. The hotel is very modern and clean, and the front desk is very friendly. The rooftop breakfast is nice, but could be a bit larger and better serviced. I would happily stay at Five Cool Rooms again. It is very hip, pleasant and serene.

We stayed here in March '09 and loved it. The location is excellent for taking in the Palermo SOHO neighborhood. The rooms are totally cool and stylish. The rooftop terrace offers beautiful a perspective to the area, the lobby is fun, and staff is very helpful.

This hotel is basically a glorified, trendy youth hostel. It is totally overpriced for what it is. I'm surprised there were no bunk beds in the room. The room was tiny and cramped and made a New York City hotel room look like a football field. The staff were very cold and unfriendly. Housekeeping doesn't even replace the toiletries the following day!! I didn't care for the fact that when booking the hotel, their rates do NOT include a 21% tax. It was the only hotel in all of Argentina who quoted rates without including the sales tax.....very deceiving. The only thing that this hotel has got going for them is the location. I would definitely advise against staying here.
