Well located boutique hotel, although it is situated off a main street, so we found the room quite noisy and had to invest in some earplugs. The room was of a decent size and the decor is of a Victorian style, very pleasant to stay in. The continental breakfast is pretty good and there is a good selection of fresh...

We loved this hotel. Nothing to fault at all. Stylish, well kept and clean throughout, friendly and helpful staff, great breakfast, free and fun tango lessons, and very reasonable prices. If we return to BA, we will simply book here again.

Great little hotel you would never know existed, which makes it perfect. The staff are amazing, and the rooms are totally charming. Clean as a whistle, and great breakfasts! Rooney himself is a great guy, and you can tell really cares about his customers.

This hotel is located in the middle of Buenos Aires close to restaurants, clubs, bars. The rooms are very design and clean. However, the walls are very thin, which limit your privacy. The service is great: breakfast (which is included in the price of the room) and the employees are always ready to help you or advise you. One of...

Rooney's Boutique Hotel represented everything I expected Buenos Aires to be - elegant, stylish and full of history. The hotel was once the home of a famous poet and the building across the hotel (looking out onto Avenida Callao) was once the home of Eva Peron when she first arrived in Buenos Aires (the tacky double decker bus told me...

Had a fabulous stay at Rooney's (five nights at the start of our trip and one at the end). Just loved the stylish period features. The owner Kieran and his staff were incredibly helpful, spoke good English and had lots of advice about where to eat, where to visit and how to get around. The free tango lessons with Horacio...

Very friendly and helpful staff - Always eager to please. Room a little noisy due to proximity of reception (the charm of old doors as opposed to modern soundproofed ones!) but not too much of a problem. Shower tends to spray on bathroom floor, which could be remedied easily - Again not a major problem. Central location good for visiting...

Rooney`s Boutique hotel was everything we needed: nice and unique rooms, professional staff and closeness to all main attractions. We stayed in superior rooms and both of them (we stayed in 2 different rooms) were fine. We had to leave the hotel twice to travel around the country and they let us leave our baggage and provided us with an...

We stayed at a few differant hotels in Argentina and Uruguay. We enjoyed this one the most. The staff was frienly and knowledgeable. They made great recommendations for places to eat. The tango lesson was fun and the rooms were fine. We stayed 6 days at the beginning of our visit and 2 at the end. We would definately return.

Myself and new bride stayed there for 5 days. The bedroom and hotel were nicely decorated and spacious. The Tango lessons were fun. I'd recommend them. We stayed in a number of different hotels while in South America and this hotel was the best experience. The best part about it was the staff who were very friendly. Nico at the...
