Palermo Viejo Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #12 of 257 Buenos Aires B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 April 2008

We have just returned from 7 days in Buenos Aires. We stayed at Palermo Viejo B & B which is a small B & B located in Palermo. Our Spanish is very limited, and the owner was so helpful to us. He offered great suggestions for restaurant choices, transportation, and entertainment. The common room is warm and colorful with internet available at all times. This is also where we were served breakfast each day consisting of pastries, fresh juice, yogurt, coffee, tea, etc. Our room opened to a small courtyard and we were "greeted" each night by the sweet smell of Lady of the Evening flowers. The room was very clean and comfortable with colorful paintings. Since taxis are so inexpensive we often took them from the B & B, but the subway is about 8-10 blocks away. There are several good restaurants and bakeries nearby. It is a safe location and we often walked to restaurants late at night.

A very unassuming place from the street, but as we stepped inside we found a quaint little courtyard and patio right in the middle of the house. It was a charming and unique place to call home for a few days. As we arrived, Ariel gave us a map and an overview of the city, some ideas of what to see and where to go. He showed us our room which was clean and comfortable, and ceilings that must have been 20 feet high. The main gathering area was cozy and there was always soft music playing. Breakfast was served promptly as you came in to sit down and was good. Palermo Viejo turned out to be a wonderful neighbourhood. Ariel suggested a place near by with a live band and tango show that was fantastic. He also made suggestions for dinner when we asked.
During our stay it was discovered that he thought we were leaving a day earlier than we were and after double checking our request he realized he’d made a mistake when booking our room. He apologized over and over, then moved us into his room for our last night and gave us a 10% discount. He took care of us and that was all that mattered to me and my husband.

we just got back from our trip in argentina and we would really like to recommend this lovely B&B run by a charming and very freindly young owner who puts his hurt into this place.

the place is in a typical Palermo house with a very beautiful courtyard decorated with lots of taste, worm and magical atmosphere. the stuff is very charming and helpful and the homemade bread was....hummm.

this was our best B&B experience in argentina it felt more like a
small "hotel de charme" in europe but with a special B.A spirit. we recommend strongly. and can't wait to come back........

I traveled with my girlfriend and I have to say this place is great. It's in a good location, near by the trendy Palermo Viejo stores and restaurants. The two closed avenues made it easier for us to find ATMs and a pharmacy for instance.

The house is completely preserved. I liked the art in it, the high ceilings and the patio where we could relax after a long day.
It's very clean. They serve breakfast any time no matter what time we woke up. We felt at home.

Ariel was so helpful. We wanted a side trip to Colonia (Uruguay) for a day. He took care of everything. Called the ferry company, bought our tickets and arranged a taxi to take us to the port for the next morning.

He loves Buenos Aires and has a high knowledge of the city. We arrived and he and his staff were prepare to show us a map of the city and told us a bit of the history of it and the country since the spanish arrived.

Any need we had was solved in a minute. I strongly recommend it.

I booked five nights at the Palermo Viejo B&B, which didn't appear in any of my travel books, purely on the advice of TripAdvisor. Certainly, Ariel, the B&B's proprietor was very helpful and responsive over email, but I couldn't help but feel a little nervous about venturing out beyond the Lonely Planet, etc. Any anxiety I may have felt was quickly alleviated upon arrival. After getting out of our taxi from Ezeiza, we were warmly greeted (in English) at the door by Ivanna, who gave us a quick tour of the property and helped orient us to our surroundings with a map and ideas for activities in Buenos Aires.

The Palermo Viejo B&B is located right off the intersection of Scalabrini Ortiz and Niceto Vega, in the hip Palermo Viejo neighborhood. Scalabrini Ortiz is a very busy thoroughfare with lots of buses and taxis whizzing back and forth, but the B&B is tucked away on the small side street of Niceto Vega, which also takes you into the heart of this quaint neighborhood packed with hip restaurants and boutiques. All the cutting-edge Palermo restaurants you've heard or read about are well within walking distance of the B&B. The location could not be better for exploring Palermo. Connections to other parts of Buenos Aires are also easy from here. Taxis are plentiful and cheap. The closest Subte station is about a 10-15 minute walk. There are a couple banks with ATMs around the corner on Cordoba, and supermarkets and grocery stores a couple blocks away on Scalabrini Ortiz.

The rooms are well appointed and clean. Ariel converted his former family home into the B&B, giving the guest rooms modern touches such as stained concrete floors, Scandinavian-style furniture, air conditioning, cable TV, Wi-Fi, and private baths. There is a small but lovely garden courtyard facing the rooms, and the common living/dining room is an excellent place to chat with Ariel and Ivanna or other guests about travel suggestions. The common room has a small library of travel books and a computer for free Internet access. A standard continental breakfast (pastries, yogurt, coffee, tea, and juice) is served late into the morning, something travelers will appreciate once they adjust to the late night culture in Argentina.

Ariel and Ivanna are gracious hosts and more than willing to help guests with reservations for transportation, restaurants, tango shows, etc. This comes in handy if your Spanish language skills aren't so great. And from what I could gather, that was the case for many of the guests, who seemed to come primarily from the United States, Canada, and Europe.

The rates are very reasonable, given the quality of the rooms, the service, and the fantastic location.

We had initially booked the 3 rooms to also include our teenagers and the mother-in-law. But unfortunately m-in-l's age do not permit the trip from Australia. Thank god as we walked and travelled plenty in 3 days.

We stayed for a few days with our teenagers in Jan. After arriving in BA, the taxi trip to Palermo overawed us a little with the immense size, people and noise. But upon arrival in Palermo, we had entered a paradise. It was quiet with little traffic and people. As it was the afternoon, the bars, cafes and boutiques (not for me) were just starting to open.

The Viejo B&B is hidden from the street with no signage, but inside is a tranquil setting. Rooms enter from a beautiful covered courtyard. We even experienced a typical Aussie thunderstorm, so sitting in the courtyard with a wine during a down pour was special.

The rooms are large, clean and cool. Ariel (the owner) was very helpful with plenty of suggestions. He arranged a Tango show and transport, and was full of ideas for more than our 3 days. A 18 Arg peso (about US$6) taxi fare and we were into the hustle and bustle of the town, and the same to get back out again to some sanity at the B&B.

Our teenagers loved the B&B with only one whinge. After 3 weeks lapping up the ship's food by the barrow load, breakfast was simple and typically Sth America. Ample for me and my wife.

I believe there is no typical age group or limit to this B&B. Everyone young or old will enjoy the experience

It is an embarrassment to only have 3 days in this B&B, district and city, but Iguazu called. Hi to Chippy and Laurie from the UK - A great couple we meet at the B&B and travelled to & from the Falls with.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Stylish B&B in the heart of Palermo Viejo/Soho. The house is located in a 1901 building, traditional of those days in Buenos Aires neighborhoods. The Casa Chorizo has been renewed keeping its original style. High ceilings, brick and thick walls are one of the details to mention. As a narrow landmark the rooms are organized in a row, facing the side patio/garden full of green where hanging out after a long day is a must. All the rooms have private en-suite bathroom and two of them are big enough with a double level to accommodate more than two people, perfect for 3 or 4. The art work of different artists is found everywhere in the property which gives it a Bohemian atmosphere. The decor is simple, where each item was found in flea markets and auctions to make the B&B a warm and a perfect place to feel at home away of home. ... more   less
