Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 May 2012

On balance we felt this was a very lovely hotel - boutique in nature - small enough to mean you got exceptional service. Our concierge organised restaurant reservations for us (three exceptional restaurants!) and gave us lots of advice on how to get to different places and where to go, for example, to a tango show. That aspect was brilliant. Additionally, the location in Palermo Soho was very good - quiet and peaceful but with some very good upscale bars and restaurants very nearby. The only thing which let it down was the lack of a restaurant or indeed even a good breakfast. Breakfast is possibly my favourite meal of the day and if I don't have a good breakfast I struggle for the rest of the day. The food was OK but limited in choice. I usually eat fruit but don't like bananas and the only fruit was a fruit salad riddled with bananas. Equally I like cereal but there was only one kind of granola and nothing else (which I did eat each day and was OK). It was fine (and I know I am a bit fussy so probably not an issue for lots of people) but not as good as all the other wonderful elements of the hotel so something they could look to improve. All in all it did not distract from our wonderful time in this hotel or indeed in Buenos Aires.

Room Tip: We had La Arrabalera and it was very nice indeed - on the first floor overlooking the courtyard

The small hotel Legado Mitico was one of the most charming Boutique Hotels I had during my trip through Argentina.
All rooms are differently designed, I had the room Del Libertador, which is very cosy and familiar. My room was very spacious and quiet, the bathroom as well. The service was excellent, especially the cleaning up-service was very good.
Breakfast is delicious. The lounging room is fantastic for relaxing, reading or checking e-mails, order a fresh cup of coffee and feel good with the finest sweet goodies.
The team is very helpful and friendly, you get all information you need at the desk, maps and also gay information is available in the lobby.
The hotel is only a few blocks to some popular gay bars and clubs, so it's a perfect location as well for gay nightlife. As I realized too, the neighbourhood of Palermo is a favorite area where a lot of gays are living, so it's the best place to stay - and a very safe too - in Buenos Aires.

Room Tip: All rooms are pretty good and comfortable, even the rooms locataded on the street side are quiet eno...

We had high expectations spending the weekend in this boutique hotel very well located in Palermo Soho. We had read very good reviews and being on the expensive side, we were ready to be pampered. It is a cosy intimate hotel with a lovely entrance and communal space, very inviting for reading and relaxing after a hard day of shopping in Palermo. The room was a little disappointing in size; quite small, though with a generous kingsize bed. Strangely the bottom sheet was not fitted and a little too small for the bed, so that it wasn't as comfortable as it should have been with properly fitted sheets. The hot water in the bathroom was temperamental and didn't work when we really needed it on the cold morning we left. Another strange touch was the metal door that allowed noise from neighbouring rooms to travel straight through our room. The breakfast included in the price was quite good with a particularly nice fresh bread from a reputable french bakery in Buenos Aires. On the whole we had a pleasant stay in this well decorated hotel but felt it wasn't flawless for the price.

Room Tip: The rooms away from the street are quieter. If you can afford it pay for a larger room as the standa...

My wife and I spent three nights at this charming place. We had a larger room with a very large bathroom. Modern and very clean. Each room is different. The service and the help from the front desk staff was exceptional. It is located clise to so many hidden gems as far as restaurants and bars. At evening and nights the neighborhood is buzzing, however this can be the most peaceful place to relax in middle it all.

Room Tip: We broke down our trip to three parts. On our return to BA we experienced another great hotel in a...

This is a really charming boutique hotel in a quiet part of Buenos Aires. The rooms all have different names, and each room's decoration is tailored to match its name. We stayed in two different rooms, both charming in their own way. The hotel is on a quiet street, so there is no road noise at all. Everything is clean and spacious. The communal areas are very thoughtfully laid out with an airy lounge/dining room/library. They don't serve lunch or dinner but breakfast is a very enjoyable meal, and sufficiently copious to keep you going until lunch time. The staff were all very kind and they all spoke at least two languages (Spanish and English) with one of them even speaking Arabic!
Fairly expensive, but a classy hotel, so good value for money on balance.

Great location in Palermo Soho. Very helpful friendly professional staff who recommended restaurants and booked them for us - all good. We have a nice room on the top floor, next to the roof terrace, which was a great place to relax for a couple of hours after a day sight seeing in Buenos Aires before going out for dinner. Palermo Soho is in an excellent friendly area of Buenos Aires, with fabulous boutiques and bars and restaurants. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: We had Che Gueva room on the top floor, next to the roof terrace - great.
