I LOVE LOVE LOVE this hotel. Everything about it is perfect - the location, the facade when you first rock up, the security, the staff, the breakfast, the rooms...everything!!
The location in Palermo is perfect. Turn right and you're in the heart of Palermo Soho in 2 minutes. To the left is the subway in 5 minutes. Palermo is also really safe to walk around at all hours.
The hotel itself is beautiful. So much character, so pristine and with perfect little touches.
The staff were very very helpful and friendly. The freshly prepared breakfast was also of a very high quality and variety.
The rooms made me never want to leave. Its a big room and the toilet / bathroom and vanity is also large, well lit and very clean. Perfect shower pressure too! The bed is extremely comfy, the best sheets ever!
I also loved the amenities they give you. All in all, I loved this hotel. I really cannot fault it.

Arrived late at night to be greeted by a nice guy in reception who quickly got us checked in.

Hotel is in a central area of Palermo, close to all shops and restaurants. Staff were very friendly and the breakfast was perfect (lots of it).

While planning our trip to Buenos Aires my husband and I were originally going to stay in a large chain hotel. But, after much research, (Thanks Trip Advisor!) we decided to stay at The Vain. Let me tell you, that was the best decision we made!!! The hotel staff were as good as you could find anywhere in the world: friendly, helpful, courteous, knowledgeable, bilingual, and just very sweet and wonderful-ALL of them! We found our room to be perfect for our stay: clean (thanks Marta!), comfortable bed, great shower, quiet, with all the amenities we needed. The AM breakfast was plentiful and delicious and the coffee amazing. It was great because the breakfast was so filling we could explore most of the day before having to worry about food for quite some time. The second floor lounge area and rooftop patio were great for downtime and relaxation and we were surprised on several occasions to be sitting in these areas and then suddenly treated to breads and juices by hotel staff. The area the hotel is located is absolutely perfect: close to the subway (which we took all over the city), close to excellent dining (more options than you can even eat at), and very safe (we did not feel uncomfortable once, even late at night). Alexandro, you and your staff made this an adventure we will never forget...we came for a concert (Pearl Jam!) but left with a love for BA and the fine folks we met at The Vain.

My husband and I used the Vain Hotel for our home base while visiting Argentina. They held our bags while we traveled, Checked on flights, called for cabs, suggested great restaurants, helped us with our plans and fed us wonderful breakfast every morning! Pablo at the front desk was a lifesaver on more than one occasion! All of the employees really work hard at making you feel comfortable. The owner is a really nice guy as well.... I can still taste the warm bread with nuts and some sort of berries.
We stayed in 3 different rooms and they were all really nice. There is a terrace on the top floor that is also quit relaxing after a long day...... I would recommend them highly!

Staff were wonderful. Great little boutique property in a super location. We felt very safe and we really enjoyed wandering the streets of Palermo. Thank you to Alexandro for some great recommendations for fun bars and restaurants in the area. Room was clean and roomy. We had a little problem in our first room with a clogged drain and even though it was night time the front desk attendent immediately moved us to another room for the remainder of our stay and housekeeping immediately assisted. Hotel has a roof top lounge area where you can enjoy the sunshine and your favorite bottle of wine. Breakfast was sensational and you certainly don't go hungry. Huge American breakfast and coffee was wonderful. You can eat as much as you can fit in. We would go back again. Sandy and Scott

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for king bed if this is important as some are queen.

Dear Mrs Sandy & Mr Scott,
Thank you so much for your positive review about us. It makes us really happy.
We do our best to make guests visit memorable, so it is nice to hear that you like our recommendations as well as being able to explore Palermo.
We are sorry to hear that you had to change rooms during the night because maintenance shift ended at 6pm. He rechecks rooms daily as different guests occupy a room each week, but this time, we were not able to handle it, so we want to apologize again for the inconvenience occured in your bathroom one night.
Hoping to have your here again really soon!
Kind regards,

Great location - staff was very accommodating - spoke English too. Breakfast each morning was superb and we were invited to eat as much as we would like. Nice rooftop patio for late night cocktails. Reminded me of South Beach!

I stayed here for 5 nights.
The room was lovely, clean, quiet and full of character.
The breakfast is made to order, and really delicious.
The staff are really welcoming, polite, and helpful.
Quite well located-10 mins walk to the subte and buses, supermarkets, health food shops, pharmacy and bank all close by, and not too far from fashionable Palermo restaurants and shops. And you feel very safe too.
Good value for money-I booked through Booking.com
