Old house in Palermo, great choice for those looking for a piece of antiquity in the trendy suburb of Palermo. All staff are very incredibly nice and helpful. The location is not the best in palermo, but Livian is definitely one of your best options in Buenos Aires

This is a townhouse in the suburb of Palermo, in a fairly quiet street. Inside it is like a family home (where the family had visited India extensively, from the artefacts displayed around the rooms). The rooms have names rather than numbers - we were in the Blue Room on the first floor. Along the corridor were doors to a... More

This boutique hotel is situated in a quiet neighbourhood, not far from bustling Palermo. It has moderate cozy rooms and a garden as a little oasis. The staff is very friendly and helpfull, and the old mansion has a good atmosphere. And you can play piano, if you want to!

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.
