“I fell in love with this hotel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

Planned just to stay here for two days and couldn't leave! Every day i was telling myself-please, just one more night here!! Beautiful terassa, amazing staff, super clean rooms, aircondition in the room, tasty empanadas on the corner and laundry service just in 2 steps from the hotel door! They even deliver all my clothes to the hotel. I stayed there 2 weeks, 2 beautiful weeks in Palermo neighborhood. Better environment couldn't be found in Buenos Aires. Very recommendable place to stay!

Stayed May 2014, travelled solo

Wow what an amazing place! Fantastic value for money and all the staff we met were friendly and helpful especially the lady that worked on reception in the mornings.

Location is excellent, minutes walk from restaurants and bars and cafés and the area felt safe. The building is also very secure with someone on reception 24 hours a day.

The building has been designed beautifully and the decor was gorgeous!

Our room was a lovely private room on the top floor with the beautiful roof garden outside. The shared bathrooms were really clean and looked new and bad wonderfully hot showers. The bed was huge with high quality linen and was really comfortable.

The only downside was that we couldn't get wi-fi in our room on the top floor but here were lots of nice common areas where we could sit and use the wi-fi so that didn't bother us.

Would definitely recommend and stay again!

There is also a bar that serves drinks and coffee.

I am a happy repeat customer of Hotel Costa Rica. I originally found it when searching for reasonably priced options near Palermo Soho and liked it so much that I have since returned on several occasions while based in Buenos Aires. The hotel is in a renovated period building that has wonderful common areas. I especially enjoy the spacious lounge on the main floor, which has tall windows that let in an abundance of light. The rooms are neatly furnished and impeccably clean. What really stands out, though, is the friendly and professional manner of the staff and also the owner, who is often on hand to greet guests. I would definitely recommend it!

Room Tip: There is a wide variety of rooms so be sure to mention any preferences you might have.

Loved this place, you can't beat the price for what you get here! The owner and staff were extremely helpful with everything .The interior is amazing with it's old charm and modern art,
it really creates a cool atmosphere to just hang out relax and meet people from all over the world.
The neighborhood has everything you need within walking distance so far as restaurants, shops, bars and there is even a laundry mat next door that did all my laundry for under 10$. They also make a really good espresso at the bar in the lobby. Thank you hotel Costa Rica and Aloha from

Impeccably designed and restored classic building, Great service, a few blocks from Palermo Viejo and Soho. We stayed on in a room with a shared bathroom and loved it. They are on the top floor and open out to an amazing rooftop terrace with great views of the city. We couldn't believe the quality we got for the low price

We were very pleased with this hotel. The location was just a few blocks away from the Subte. The neighborhood had numerous shops and restaurants. he hotel staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Lovely common areas including a roof deck. Our room was fine. Nothing fancy but better than we had expected for the price (around $60 USD/night including tax).

Room Tip: Our room (#3) had a second set of doors that opened into a hotel alcove courtyard. Though no one ev...
