We really cannot say enough to describe this hotel! It was a mansion, once owned by a doctor and his family (100 years ago). Upon renovation, the ambiance and character remain. We were upgraded, at no charge, to a superior roon with large windows opening onto the back courtyard. We travel all over the world and this was truly the most amazing hotel we've chosen! The staff is so accommodating. Breakfast every morning (which was offered in our room at no charge) and all questions answered with a smile! I developed a small blister and asked Alicia if they might have a bandaid. The ones they had were too large, so I thought we would pick up a small box on our travels. Within in 10 minutes she appeared at our door with a box! I was really stunned! We took taxis everywhere, as they are very reasonable We paid $35 from the airport. The neighborhood is lovely with many restaurants and shops to peruse. It is the Soho of Buenos Aires. I would reccommend this lovely hotel to anyone...family and friends included! Thank you, Hotel Krista!

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 8. It was beautiful.

We stayed at the Krista for a week in late March/early April on our first trip to B.A. We enjoyed it so much that when we returned to the city for three further nights after travelling in the north of Argentina, we chose the Krista again. For us the location of the hotel was perfect - in a real neighbourhood rather than in an area dominated by tourists, and yet we were within walking distance of some excellent restaurants. While we thoroughly enjoyed the attractions of the city, it was nice to return to the tranquil atmosphere of the hotel, which has peaceful inner and outer courtyards. We also enjoyed the simple but fresh breakfast served in a very attractive room.
During our two visits we stayed in two rooms. One was a standard room on the first floor and the other was a superior room on the ground floor overlooking the outer courtyard. We would recommend the superior room to those who like/need a bit more space. The very best thing about the Krista are the friendly and helpful staff. We were particularly pleased to have Alicia and Alejandro on hand to answer all of our questions and provide guidance. If we return to B.A., we would look forward to staying at the Krista.

Room Tip: The superior rooms facing the outer courtyard are a good choice.

Our family of 2 adults and 3 children (ages 1 to 6) stayed at the Krista Hotel for 8 nights. We booked two adjoining Superior rooms, and the hotel put single beds in one room for the 2 older kids, and a crib in our room for the baby. The rooms were well appointed, and the beds were comfortable. The common areas of the hotel are very nice, and include several separate areas to sit and relax and read. The wireless internet strength was great--never had a problem--and the hotel makes a Mac available in the lobby as well. We also very much enjoyed the breakfast--relatively simple, but fresh and delicious.

What really makes this hotel stand out is the outstanding service you receive from everyone working there. Before booking, we called and wrote Alejandro (Alex) several times to make sure it would work for our family. Then over the course of our stay, we dealt with probably every person employed at the hotel and everyone was unfailingly helpful and kind, and were always patient with our kids. Alex and Alicia were especially helpful, but again everyone was great.

I also recommend the location. (This was our second stay in Palermo, and last time we stayed in a different hotel 2 blocks away.) This section of Palermo is sleepier than the area around Plaza Serrano and the couture shops on the other side of Avenida Juan Justo, but you can easily walk there in 15 minutes. Nevertheless, it has some terrific restaurants within a block or three so you won't feel at all deprived.

Great place to relax in a great neighborhood. The room was a decent size, and nice breakfast in the morning although it was the same every day and I was here 11 days (eggs made to order, orange juice, muffins, croissants, fruit, coffee, etc. Internet was fast, so no problems there. It was a little bit of a walk to the metro/Subte (7 blocks or so), but the taxis are not expensive. To the airport was 220 pesos or about 45US. At first i thought it was far from downtown, but after you see downtown, I would rather stay in Palermo Hollywood/Soho area. Very safe and lots of restaurants and shops to browse and cafes to sit and read. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Would def recommend staying here.

Room Tip: I think all the rooms are probably ok. I was at the back near the whirlpool, but no one was there so...

we felt welcomed and carefully looked after throughout our stay in this gem of a boutique hotel, and I would like to highly recommend it to anyone staying in BA for a couple of days.

+ wonderfully designed with a lot of attention to detail
+ fantastic location in the trendy heart of Palermo
+ great, friendly service throughout our stay
+ very nice breakfast room - no huge buffet but just right
+ excellent wireless connection
+ 15min taxi ride to domestic airport (Jorge Newbery)

Hint:
We did not know this before, unfortunately, but you will get a 10% discount for paying your room bill in cash.
If you pay cash in USD, the discount is even higher because the conversion rate is far better than the official one.

Improvement:
No minibar / kettle (though red wine on the room and nespresso in the hallway)

Room Tip: Try to get a superior room. Prices are just slightly higher but the rooms are much nicer.

I stayed with my wife and two year old at Krista Hotel Boutique for three nights. Krista is a small charming hotel with a lot of character. The choices for breakfast is limited, but just what you need - fresh orange juice, toast, yoghurt, fruit salad. If you have any special requests for breakfast, you can ask a day in advance and they arrange that. We had little knowledge about Buenos Aires but got great help from Alejandro at the front desk on how to plan our stay. Palermo is a great area, with many small little nice shops and cafes. Taxi is affordable and and it is easy to get around wherever you want in town. Would absolutely recommend this place.

Stayed for a couple of nights and found the staff really useful and the ambiance relaxing. It's not the absolute best hotel in BA but if you're looking for somewhere reasonably nice then this should be good for you. Try to get a room towards the back of the residence as the walls are reasonably thin.
