“Rooney's Boutique Hotel”
Reviewed 27 September 2013

Rooney's hotel turned out to be delightful. The staff was very competent, and their knowledge of English was excellent. The location In the heart of the city was perfect. We could walk where we wanted to go, public transportation, taxis, buses and the subway, were very close by, and the many stores and restaurants were excellent.
The hotel itself had a very nice breakfast, the furnishings were old fashioned, but charming, the rooms and baths comfortable, and the ambiance charming. The staff was outstandingly helpful in making arrangements for a city tour, in arranging for a tango show, in locating a travel agent to get reservations to go to Iguasu Falls, and many other things. Not only that, but you could get tango lessons!

Room Tip: No suggestions. The rooms I saw were all very charming and comfortable.

We spent the last five days of our South American holiday at Rooneys and we certainly didn't regret it.
It is small, as you would expect from a boutique hotel, but the benefit of this is excellent service. The owner/manager was very helpful and gave us good tips for nearby restaurants and a tango show for our last night (smaller and more intimate than the 'big' shows where most tourists go).
The hotel is accessed via an atmospheric, old fashioned lift and the rooms are full of character with high ceilings and candelabra. The bedrooms are well equipped, with comfortable beds and good bathrooms. Our room faced the street and so we had a problem with a lot of noise some nights (they party late and hard in Buenos Aires, and when they aren't partying they are loudly demonstrating in the streets!). We took advantage of the offer of a free tango lesson in the hotel, with decidedly mixed results! It was great fun however and added to the BA experience.
The one area where we were a little disappointed was the quality of the breakfasts. They are certainly quite basic with not much choice and no hot food at all. The juice wasn't fresh and the coffee was stone cold one morning. A little more variety and choice would have helped. It may even have lifted this review to the full five stars. Otherwise Rooneys came close to being perfect as a base for visiting BA

Room Tip: Maybe choose one that isn't overlooking the main street outside.

I went to this hotel based on TripAdvisor comments so want to add mine. This is a small hotel on the 3rd floor of an office building in midtown/downtown BA, right where I needed to be to attend a conference. I was very satisfied with my comfortable room, old fashioned furniture, excellent, bathroom, and especially lovely the very high ceilings. The wi-fi came and went, but mostly came. The free tango lesson - on site by Maria - was FABULOUS. There were 3 of us unacquainted women and she taught us as a group and danced with us individually and in 1 hour I really learned a bit. And it was fun. My only complaint was the super boring and skimpy breakfasts. However, there is a small supermarket right downstairs, so bring up your own cheese or yogurt or whatever you like. Friends at other hotels had runny or underdone eggs so maybe I got lucky.

My wife and I spent our honeymoon in Rooney's Boutique Hotel and can't imagine a better choice. The staff are excellent, friendly, helpful, the hotel is adorable, and the location is perfect. We found it by chance, but we would advise anyone thinking about a stay in Buenos Aires to pick Rooney's.

The hotel and rooms are absolutely stunning. The staff, especially Adrian, were very lovely and very helpful. The hotel is in walking distance of every major attraction in BA. Breakfast is also delicious! I would definitely recommend staying here!

Room Tip: Room one is stunning.

We stayed in Rooney’s Boutique Hotel for 5 nights as part of our honeymoon.
We had researched hotels in BA and thought we would try something different as opposed to large chain type hotels....we were not disappointed! From the delightful lift to the character filled rooms we felt like we stepped back in time yet with all the modern services you would need from a hotel. We opted for larger room at the front and were advised it could be noisy due to the central location however we found it absolutely fine and had great night’s sleep. The interior of the room was charming, large bed and restored chandeliers, I took pictures to help me with decorating ideas! The location was perfect, within walking distance to all major tourist attractions including the Recloeta & Congresso. The breakfast was delicious, it had all the usual that a continental breakfast has to offer plus a range of freshly cooked eggs every morning.
I couldn’t speak highly enough of the staff at Rooney’s, nothing was any trouble, from arranging travel to friendly advice, at the end of each day we felt like we were staying in a wealthy friends house as opposed a hotel!
