The importance of a first step is that it would mark the way we are heading. That's why choosing Ilum is understanding that our reality doesn't nourish itself from our yesterday or our tomorrow, today is forever today, it is here and now where I choose to be. Ilum is a place with no pressures, a place where we found that the most important thing is to allow ourselves to enjoy of the best, what we receive in life is a consequence of what we give, that is why in Ilum experience home what we give is our priority.

One of those experiences that was a joy to behold ! This hotel has had so much thought go into making it a guest experience. Every area of the hotel was a pleasurable exploration - the rooms, the reception, the staff, the cleanliness, the bathrooms, the information and it goes on. Perfect situation for a visit and exploration for Buenos Aires. We struck lucky !

We slept just one night in this pleasant small hotel located in Palermo Hollywood area, a quiet area full of restaurants and bar and close to the main center of Palermo Soho.
The welcoming was nice and in general the fist impression was very good. The very urban and modern hotel is a combination of design architecture, a bit of asian memories and a pleasant black and white game of colors in the common areas, also completed with a small waterfall on the wall. A small and quiet outside pool completes the pleasure of this stay. The room was modern and functional, not too big and not to small.
I cannot say that we experienced home but we stay very well in this first night in Argentina at a reasonable price.

We visited in March and April as I have family in Buenos Aires. I have stayed in many hotels and many times got disappointed. Last year we stayed at the Four Seasons and felt it wasn’t value for money. So this year we thought we’d stay in a small boutique hotel. We had a wonderful experience. Ilum is a small hotel but has an amazing team running the business. They pay attention to every detail and nothing is too much trouble. The room was clean and serviced spotless every single day. Breakfast is good, maybe not the massive selection you get from a big chain but much more choice than what any of us would normally have for breakfast anyway, and less waste too. We booked the Deluxe suite and it is massive ( two rooms and two bedrooms plus a lovely big terrace). The location is great, walking distance to restaurants, bars, and ice cream shops, and half way between downtown and the north where there are many touristic attractions. Is good to avoid the busy roads near the finance centre of Buenos Aires as the traffic can be diabolical. All in all we can’t complain at all (and we are picky!), will definitely stay again!

We stayed at the property in BA for 4 nights. The room was large, the property was centrally located, but quiet, and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast was wonderful, with lots of fresh fruit and various options. We will definately stay here again on our next visit to BA.

The staff really shine in this hotel. I had a few hours to kill before my flight and I asked for massage recommendations nearby, and they called about five establishments and gave me the lowdown on price, quality and proximity. And they also called us a cab that took USD. Really went above and beyond.
The cleaning crew is also very thorough. We came back to an immaculate room every night.
Hotel itself is situated in a great neighborhood, tons of bars and restaurants nearby that are top notch, plus there's a pool, a decent gym, and good dining area to have a coffee and work (if you have to).
Thanks Ilum staff, especially ADRIAN and MILAGROS for welcoming my fiance and I into Argentina. Highly recommend.

I stayed here one night and would definitely stay here again. The neighborhood is safe and fun with great options for shopping, dining, and outdoor activities, and is close to transit options.

The room was very very comfortable and quiet, and had a large private balcony.

The breakfast was delicious and was served in a very elegant common area.

I didn't use most of the amenities but the pool looked beautiful.

Great value. The evening manager spoke English well, which was helpful, and the daytime staff were very patient!

It's always such a pleasure to write a review in which there's only positive things to report... and the Ilum is definitely in that category. It's a four star hotel with five star service from the young and enthusiastic staff. A hotel this good is the best reason to avoid Airbnb... someone is always there to answer questions, give knowledgeable advice, make reservations, print boarding passes, etc., etc.. Since our flight out of B.A. was leaving at an ungodly early hour long before breakfast opened they even prepared a bagged version that we devoured in the cab on the way to the airport!
This hotel itself is quite stylish, even elegant with a zen simplicity. The room was everything you could expect from a 4-star with a comfortable bed and all the amenities and toiletries you'd expect... nothing luxurious but perfectly appropriate at this price point. The room, like the rest of the hotel was spotless.
The pool was a wonderful highlight and highly appreciated upon our return in the afternoon.
The hotel is smallish, so the breakfast buffet was not vast but was fine quality and had everything we needed, including plenty of fruit. However, I do wish the coffee from a large urn was a bit better.

Having only been in Buenos Aires this one time I can't say this is the best hotel in the city, but in my life I've stayed at a thousand hotels, and the Ilum has entered my personal hall of fame! Highly recommended.

We had the chance to stay the Ilum Experience Home for 4 days, following our cruise on the Celebrity Infinity Cruise ship. As is well known, on the premium cruise ships the service and amenities are exceptional. Very few hotels come up to this level of service. But the Ilum Hotel Staff should be proud of reaching this 5-star standard from the moment we arrived. It is a beautifully maintained and designed property in a wonderful neighborhood. But the Real Stars are the staff. I must compliment Agustin who was the first person we met and who made us feel so welcome. What an amazing employee! I truly felt the service was 100%, and the care was genuine and sincere. Thank you, Agustin, and The Staff at the hotel. Buenos Aires Is such a beautiful city and I see why it is called the Paris of South America. This was our first time there, but we will return in the future and The Ilum Hotel will be our Choice.

The Ilum Experience Home has a great location in the Palermo district. It is clean, well maintained, modern and the room and beds are very comfortable. What we liked the most was the personal attention given to us by the staff. They helped us with recommendations for restaurants, music venues, cultural sites, transportation and tips on local attractions. They greeted us warmly every day, coming in or going out, and made sure that we were well taken care of. Strong recommendation.

Dear Lindsay, Thank you for contacting us! We have checked this category “Leisure classic + breakfast” and it is exactly the same as "Classic category". Depending on the agency, the room name can vary since they have their own standard names. Same case with “Studio room” that can be also found as "Classic Apartment", both are the same category. Please do not hesitate to contact us again for further assistance. Kind regards Noelia Careggio Reservations
