I imagine for most people arriving in Buenos Aires, they will be coming from a long flight or bus. How you are welcomed, how comfortable you feel, and with what confidence you allow yourself to rest your bags down, flop on the bed and know everything is alright, are crucial impressions when arriving at a hotel in a new city. It may even be your first impression of the whole continent! Duque Hotel was exceptional in their reception of us at 3am, after 30hours of travel. And after we checked out, it was extremely comforting to have a funky lounge area with ham and cheese sandwiches and a big tv to hang out until our flight. Fantastic service. Thanks guys!

My husband and I recently spent two nights at the Duque Hotel in the Palermo Soho district of Buenos Aires We were sorry that we couldn't remain longer.
The hotel is in an area that lends itself to walking to a square containing many restaurants and shops and at the same time is within walking distance of a subway station that leads to the main square of the city.
The hotel is charming, the breakfast is very ample, and the bed very comfortable. The room is not large but well appointed.
Probably the biggest positive about the hotel is its young, friendly, and very obliging staff. Each and every one of the people on the desk were as helpful as they could be and were all very personable. If the occasion ever arises when we can return to Buenos Aires, the Duque would be our first choice of where to stay. Sandra Burke, Toronto, Canada

This was a great find although it's hardly BA's best-kept secret to people who read reviews.We had come off a 14 day cruise and after enough hustle and bustle, Duque was an oasis for us.There is an awning outside this small hotel and unless you had the address you wouldn't know it was there.It is as understated and local as the neigborhood which is Soho Palrmo, just on the border of the Recoletta area,w/o Recoletta prices. you can walk anywhere.we walked through Soho Palermo, down to recoletta,out to the waterfront.yeah..alot of walking but like NY, BA is a walking city.
The lobby, dining area, pool area, tv rooms and computer room are well appointed and you feel like you are in someone's home.really NICE home. The rooms? small but it's a boutique hotel. If you want big American style hotels, stay there for 5x the price.But do not think for a moment that Duque is budget.It is so upscale in its look and feel you feel you found something and don't want to spoil it by telling anyone. If you come to BA for a visit or need a place to go after a cruise and want to unwind and walk neighborhoods and be greeted by desk attendants instead of carvernous lobbies and too much "bigness," stay here.we would again and suggest it to other friends.

Room Tip: ask for a room facing the back, not the street. 107 is a great room.

I chose Duque for spending the first six nights of my honeymoon and made a right choice. The hotel is small, doesn't have many rooms, so the service is VIP. Everyone there knew we were recently married and greeted us very warmly, always trying to speak Portuguese with us (and English with almost all the other guests). The room is not big (the only downside actually), but it is cozy and stylish (as the entire boutique hotel). Location is very good and silent (at least the rooms in the backside of the hotel), breakfast is delicious and the jacuzzi is a real bliss after a full day walking around Buenos Aires. Unfortunately the pool was being repaired during all of our stay, but staff gave us free massages for making up for this minor inconvenience. A great hotel after all, especially for couples.

The service and facilities here are top notch for a boutique hotel, and deserving of the reviews. The breakfast is lovely and there's a funky communal lounge area with comfy couches.

Our room looked was nice enough but it was so tiny, there's hardly any space to move around. The hotel is also not a great location for walking to tourist places. We spent loads on cabs during our stay.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on your recent experience in our home.
We are thrilled that you enjoyed all of El Duque facilities and accommodation. We are sorry if you felt that our rooms were tiny but for us being a "Boutique Hotel" makes it hard to have bigger spaces but that is part of its charm. We want to let you know that our doors will always be open for your return, remember el Duque will always be your home in Buenos Aires.
Greetings from all of the staff and we hope to see you again sometime.
