We stayed at Ilum when our initial reservations elsewhere fell through (we were delayed due to Hurricane Sandy), and ended up there for five nights. It is a very nice little hotel, with clean and pleasant rooms, a nice breakfast, and very friendly, helpful staff. Juan, who manned the front desk for much of our stay, was particularly helpful with...

The room: clean, very comfortable kingsize bed, pillow service, enough electricity sockets (staff has adaptor on loan if needed), super shower (with tropical shower head) in tub, dvd player, quiet airco. Really, all the comforts you need. We only had some trouble with the wifi in our room, but it was always available in the reception area. We had garden...

Ilum was recommended to us by friends who had stayed there. We were as pleased as our friends with the hotel, the service, the assistance we received and the location. The hotel is very well appointed, the staff very friendly and eager to assist with whatever problem one may have. It is also very conveniently located near excellent restaurants and...

We stayed here on 26 September 2012, was meant to be two nights but due to our flight being cancelled the night before ended up only being one night. They were fantastic and only charged us for the one night. Alexander at reception is unbelievable, so chirpy, friendly, English speaking, nothing too much of a bother. The rest of the...

Ilum was a tremendous find for my first stay in Buenos Aires - a small and friendly hotel in the beautiful and charming Palermo Hollywood. We'd been worried that Hollywood was the wrong side of the tracks - but found plenty of superb restaurants and fascinating architecture along El Salvador and surrounding streets. The hotel was designed with detail in...

If you are looking for a friendly, design forward boutique hotel in the heart of Palermo, this is your place. Only 12 rooms with large windows and beautiful common areas. The hotel is only 18 months old and there is attention to detail in the every aspect of the design from the recessed lighting, to the furnishings, to the bathroom...

We stayed at the Ilum Hotel in February and March 2012. When i read the reviews i was a little hesitant about the place as they were all glowing which always makes me suspicious but my suspicions were unfounded. This place is a real find. It's really well located - not in the thick of the action but close enough...

Love this hotel!! From the moment you walk into the lobby, the cool, Asian themed hotel just feels peaceful and elegant. The hotel staff are friendly and incredibly helpful. Carolina in particular advised us on great places to eat and the perfect New Year's tango show. The rooms are modern and very clean. The hotel is in the heart of...

Our stay here was outstanding. First of all, the staff are absolutely wonderful - nothing was ever a problem. They are attentive, kind and so helpful - providing suggestions and information on where to go and how to get there.

Neighbourhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighbourhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favourite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
