“Possibly the most helpful hotel we've ever stayed in.”
Reviewed 3 June 2013

Once you've got over the fact that the hotel is essentially a waiting/reception area with rooms above (and this may be just be a shock to a European mind), then at approximately £85/night (via Expedia)for a double room and breakfast for two, this place is a great find. Situated in the more chic neighbourhood of Palermo Soho, it is perfect as a base for the rest of the city with more 'select' eating, drinking and shopping close by, without having to put up with Burger Kings, Starbucks, etc. There is no restaurant to speak of, merely a bar and dining area for the buffet breakfasts and some of the decor could do with a bit of sprucing up, but on a city break what else do you really need other than a bed for the night?
The staff are possibly the most pleasant and helpful we've ever encountered, particularly the guys on the reception desk, helping us sort out non-arriving taxis, day-trip advice, etc.

All in all a very good find!

Nice boutique hotel in a great location - walking distance to great shops, restaurants and nightlife, but in a quiet area. We stayed for 5 nights and didn't want to break the bank during a 2 week trip in South America so price was key. Given the options in this hip neighborhood, Esplendor was a great choice. The staff was very nice, the lobby was clean and they had an awesome rooftop with a bar (plus you could have breakfast served there). The only thing was that our room had an odd smell to it and it just kept getting worse with each day. Other than that, this was a good deal.

I liked the room and dining area. The receptionist were all kind and willing to help. The only thing that I didn't like was that it smelled a little bit wet cement in the room.

Spent 1 night in Palermo Soho prior to departing BsAs. It's a lovely boutique hotel, very easy to get to from subte, the room is spacious & I had a room w/ patio to overlook the streets. There's no noise coming from the streets but if you have noisy neighbours, u will hear them from the hallway.
The bathroom is small but the shower provided hot showers & good pressure. The king size bed is soft & comfortable w/ nice pillows. There's a fridge w/ room to add stuff in it to avoid using the minibar.
There is a flat screen TV w/ numerous channels including some English ones. Check in is 3pm but we arrived around 11am & a room was available & the hotel allowed us to check in then. Which was great as BsAs is humid & we needed a shower & go out to enjoy Palermo.
We were also able to secure a later check out so we could shower & leave for airport.
Palermo Soho is great neighbourhood that has great food options in every price range. It's just off of Santa Fe.
The complimentary buffet breakfast is generous w/ the per usual BsAs breakfast of ham, cheese, medialunas, breads, cereals, juices, & coffee.
I would recommend staying here as it's accessible & the front desk are helpful.

The Esplendor is a nice boutique hotel. The room was not spectacular, but it was comfortable, and we really enjoyed our stay. We did hang out a few times in the bar area, which wasn't fancy, but it had a cool and relaxing feel to it, and the breakfast was great.

The location of the hotel was wonderful! We couldn't have picked a better spot. We were walking distance from many terrific sidewalk cafes, shops and parks. Day or night, we felt completely safe walking down the streets.

The best part about the hotel, however, was the staff. They made great recommendations for us regarding restaurants and activities, and when we were having a problem booking a helicopter tour, they took care of it for us. We interacted with at least five different staff members, and every single one of them was extremely friendly and helpful. We just felt really comfortable here, and we'd definitely stay here again.

We stayed 3 nights after arriving in Buenos Aires, then returned for another night before leaving Argentina. This hotel is perfectly located within walking distance of the botanical gardens, cemetery, shopping and the cultural center. The area is quite safe, with police patrol on street corners at night. Rooms are simply furnished but clean and service is great. I highly recommend staying here.

Located in Palermo, great place to stay if you are in BA. Has a rooftop bar to end the afternoon and see the sun go down. There is not a lot of staff on duty, what other people complain about, but it didn't bother us. We enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: The hotel as also renovated/ new rooms. These are located on the left side of the hotel. Little bit...
