“Charming & Romantic”
Reviewed 5 March 2012

Great stay in Buenos Aires at Rooney's Boutique. We found it to be a very charming and romantic place. Tastefully furnished in the style of the 'belle epoque' it also had the necessary modcons such as wifi and airecondtioning. The staff were extremly helpful - big thanks to Juan who helped us change our internal flights. Also, handy location as close to many attractions that enabled us to walk.

Room Tip: spend a little extra and book a delux room

Thanks to the welcome we got at Rooney's, our first impression of Buenos Aires was that of a warm and joyful city. And thanks to the hotel's staff outstanding service, that is the impression we know keep as one of the best memories of our trip. Just stepping in this small hotel we felt among old friends. Nothing pretentious, just simple and charming details. Despite it's "classic" vibe and the small bathroom, everything was in great conditions, clean and functional.Because it's a small hotel, the staff can truly devote their attention to understanding your expectations and helping you achieve a great travel experience. Breakfasts were delicious, location very convenient and the tango lessons a big plus! We recommend it in a heartbeat.

Rooney's took great care of us during our stay - from the airport pickup, to the english speaking staff that patiently helped us with all our travel and site seeing arrangements, to the fresh breakfast cooked to order - we had a very enjoyable time in Buenos Aires. The hotel itself is divine - very charming and tastefully decorated with all the mod cons such as wifi and aircon. The location is very handy - centrally located and enables one to walk to many places of interest and nearby milonga bars and restaurantes. Highly recommend Rooney's - especially to travellers that look for something different and try and avoid the big chain hotels.

its easy to miss the hotel entrance because it is shared with residential apartments, use the intercom to get 'buzzed' in and out.
It is a very heavy front door and there are some steps and an internal doorway before you reach the small elevator/lift, so be prepared if you have heavy luggage! BUT persevere, as this 3rd floor hotel is lovely!

The compact space for the reception and lobby areas is beautifully decorated to highlight the character and architecture of the building, My room was clean with a tiny shower room and very comfortable bed.

the hotel's central location means a lot of traffic noise, all day and night but this is inevitable in central BA - ALWAYS take earplugs!

the staff were friendly and helpful and the early evening free tango lesson is a lovely introduction for beginners.
breakfast is good quality with eggs/ommlette options and selection of fruits/pastries drinks etc.

Room Tip: rooms facing over Callao have more traffic noise than rooms over Sarmiento.

Visiting Buenos Aires for the first time, wanted a small hotel in the centre of Buenos Aires. Not disappointed. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. The breakfast was very good, probably the best during our whole visit to South America. For the price it was good value, clean, good service and good food. A bit noisy at the weekend due to you being in the centre of the action but this is a great city to visit with fantastic steaks and malbec wine. Would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Buenos Aires for the first time. The hotel arranged the taxi from the airport to the hotel which was very helpful.

Room Tip: Room on the south side is quieter

My wife and I took our first break for 10 years in November and after looking on line choose Rooneys.
Although check in is officially 3pm, we got our room at 09.30 am after a great cup of coffee and cake after we arrived. Front desk was great, arranging day trips, tips on what to see and great authentic eating reccomendations.
The free tango lesson was a kick (even though I dont like dancing) my wife loved it.
The morning of a trip to Uruguay a breakfast was prepared even though it was before the official time for breakfast.
Rooms were good area good and alive you got the feeling you were in a live city.
Only small negative point was I had to book through a booking site because their web site would not accept my credit card and because of that the airport hotel transfer was nnot free.
Overall would fully reccomend.
