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.
