“lovely”
Reviewed 16 March 2013

Stayed four during february, this was our second visit to Legado, and it was a lovely as the first visit. The hotel staff are very helpful with organising restaurants, tickets, taxis and just general information. The rooms are very comfortable with good large beds and spotless bathrooms, the sitting and breakfast areas are relaxing, and over breakfast there is always someone to talk to. This hotel is very well placed in Palermo and is good for walking about in the evening, and not too far from other parts of Buenos Airies, well worth a stay if in Buenos Aires.

Room Tip: if possible try and book one of the larger rooms, have stayed in a back and front room and noise wis...

Delightful is not a word I use regularly, but it is the word that best describes Legado Mitico for me. It is small (11 rooms I think) and beautifully designed (but then again the owners are architects). The lounge area is a gem! The staff are top - pleasant, helpful and friendly. My room is lovely (El Idealista). The area in which it is situated - Palermo - is awash with shops (mainly fashion, furniture and nicknacks) and restaurants and it has a really good feel about it. The hotel and the area are very relaxed in a pretty hectic city, so they are a very welcome refuge. If I were to be critical, there are 3 minor points that, if improved, would make the hotel even more perfect: 1) the bedside lamps are too weak to read by, 2) the rooms are somewaht on the dark side, but there again that keeps them cool and 3) the breakfast could be a little bit more creative (after 6 nights it gets a bit monotous having the same every morning). But these are minor points. Very highly recommended, but not for everyone (price and sizewise) .

Room Tip: Loved El Idealista - only room on the top floor - couldn't wish for more privacy.

We spent five nights at this wonderful hotel in a great neighborhood.
This was truly a gem of a find. The staff are friendly, professional and very helpful. The hotel itself is small and very elegant. You almost feel that you are staying in a very beautiful home not just a hotel. The two owners are wonderfully caring and attend to every detail of your stay.
It was a pleasure to meet them and personally sing the praises of their hotel.
We had a small issue in our suite and it was taken care of immediately along with a note of concern and a bottle of wine for our inconvenience. This was unnecessary but greatly appreciated.
The suite was on the top floor, large and beautifully appointed. The bathroom was enormous.
The only fault we could find was the air conditioning being turned off, by the maid, whenever we left the suite. Several days of hot, humid weather and the beautiful suite on the top floor
was regularly hot upon on return. We could never understand why they always turned the air conditioning off, even for just a few hours.
This issue doesn't deter us from recommending this hotel as outstanding in every other way.
We will gladly return to the Legado Mitica whenever we are in Buenos Aires.

This is our third stay at this beautiful small elegant hotel, and I have to say everything about it flawless. As a former hotel owner myself, I have a very critical eye - and not one single detail was missed here.

The staff is terrific - personable, smart, kind and professional.
The housekeeping is terrific. Perfection.
The gentleman serving the wonderful breakfast is professional and helpful, even when up against language barriers with guests, he is still excellent.
And the owners are elegant gentlemen who have renovated flawlessly this perfect
jewel in the hip Palermo district of Buenos Aires.
Despite my best efforts, I could not find a single thing to criticize! I loved it and look forward to the return.
Bravo.

We stayed at Legado Mitico for 2 nights at the start of our trip in Argentina and it was a welcome refuge after our long flight. Based in the best part of Palermo, with coffee bars, restaurants and boutiques on the doorstep, it is a really elegant and luxurious hotel.

After a day of pounding the streets of Buenos Aires, we came back to the hotel and enjoyed a hot tub and champagne on the roof terrace, pure bliss.

Breakfast was simple but more than satisfactory, with wonderful fresh bread.

The living areas and terrace are a refuge from the hectic hustle and bustle of the city. A great place to relax and enjoy a glass of wine.

My one (slightly random) complaint would be that they use a very strong cleaning product (or perhaps it was a perfume coming from the air-conditioning, we couldn't tell) I am sensitive to perfumes and found it quite overwhelming. Staff were helpful on the whole, not the chattiest, which may be a plus if you prefer your privacy and want to be left to enjoy your stay in peace....

Very discreet entrance. Lovely welcoming front desk staff and beautiful interiors. Totally unexpected and very relaxing. Only gripe is that getting drinks and fresh food for the buffet at breakfast takes some time and as we stayed only one night at a time on our way to and from Usuaia we had to leave sharpish on both occasions. I would definitely recommend the location, which is very close to the busy evening area of Soho in Palermo and also it's proximity to the internal airport.

Room Tip: On both occasions we stayed in the Prima Donna room which is large and looks out across the rear cou...

Probably our favorite hotel on our trip to Argentina. The staff was very accommodating. Located in a great area of Palermo. The rooms and common area were very clean and inviting. The outdoor patio was a great place to unwind with a glass of wine.
