“Ok if you don't mind sharing with owner's family and being out of town”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 February 2012

The property itself is pleasant but we were disappointed at being so far out of the centre and by the owner's family party on our first night which went on until after midnight.

Dear Kelly,

We would like to thank you for your comment. It always helps us to improve and offer better services to future guests.

The first part of your post is really embarrassing because Posada Gotan is, and has always been, 100% dedicated to our guests. Our family is not living here! You were here, in Argentina, in April 2011 and you wrote this comment nearly 1 year after your trip. Are you sure to speak about Posada Gotan because the only things we share with our guests are good tips and our Latin-American happiness and good mood.

The second part of your comment is true. Posada Gotan is not in the massive tourist area. It is our choise to be in The Bohemian and Artists neighborhood of Buenos Aires. We are a "Slow Travel" B&B made for guests who are looking Peace and Quality!

Excellent quality and very secure B&B with an ever helpful host. Clean and comfortable rooms and a nice small courtyard area. Thiabaud is a mine of information and does not mind requests for recommendations and will go out of his way to help in any way he can. Situated in Bodeo, the home of tango, it is around a 10 minute walk to the Subte for frequent connections to other parts of the city. Thiabaud can also arrange for taxis.

Room Tip: For extra space we booked the superior double overlooking the courtyard.

Nice smaller B&B in Buenos Aires in the Boeda area of town. Great host will help you with day trips, Tango nights and places to eat. Very comfortable with a nice breakfast. It is a bit out of the major areas but has easy access with the subway. It is very good for the price.

Posada Gotan is a lovely respite from the hustle and bustle of the city. The internal courtyard and not too central location provides a great opportunity to experience the city while avoiding the sleepless nights the micro-center offers. Thibaud is incredibly helpful without being intrusive; ask and he will guide you. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. Make sure you try the preserves. Thibaud makes them onsite and the croissants his friend makes for the hotel reminded me of the bakery near our apartment in Paris years ago (yum!!!). For some, the location might be a bit of a challenge but, I encourage readers to step off of the beaten track and get to know Boedo. There are some great cafes nearby and you get to see the real Buenos Aires.

Posada Gotan is a charming B&B in an authentic BA neighborhood, Boedo. Thibaub, who speaks excellent spanish, english and french will give very good advices: where to eat in Boedo (very good parillas and cafés), how to reach the main attractions (good subway and bus system, stations near the hostel) and how to avoid bad experiences in the city (being screwed by taxi drivers etc.). I rarely see hotels that clean and so tastefully presented. The general feeling is one of calm and relaxation, which feels good after a day visiting BA. I enjoyed walking around Boedo and sitting in cafés, watching locals getting on with their lifes. And, to top it all, it is affordable. Perfect. The only thing is that the large keys make a lot of noise! But hey...

We just stayed at the Posada Gotan this past weekend and had the most wonderful time! The B&B is located in a quiet neighborhood, off the typical beaten tourist track if Buenos Aires. The building and courtyard felt peaceful, secure, and revitalizing. Breakfast of fresh croissants and locally-made bread were delicious. Above all the service, from Thibaud, was exceptional. He recommended local eateries, assisted in navigating the public transportation, and talked with us in the morning at length. Overall, I would highly recommend this lodging for someone who is interested in a quiet getaway with comfortable accommodations all the while with easy access to the center of the City, Palermo, and Recoleta for excitement. Thanks to the Posada Gotan for a pleasant stay!

Our accommodation was very comfortable, clean and peaceful. Excellent breakfasts. Good location. Our host coped with our flight delays resulting in arrival in the early hours. Thibaud was a charming host, generous with his time and quick to help and advise. We would certainly choose Posada Gotan for a return visit to BA.
