In VAIN one will feel the Buenos Aires of the early 20th century, in contrast with avant-garde design touches, where every detail was carefully planned to provide the guest with a unique experience. Every room in VAIN is different but they all share the original architecture of the building, classic and modern furniture and, above all, design to every single detail. The Vain consider modesty as a good quality, but everyone needs a touch of vanity once in a while Unleash the vain side at VAIN. The hotel offers Amenities: Airport transfer (extra charge), bar, concierge, conference facilities, currency exchange, doctor on call, dry cleaning, internet access- High speed, internet access-wireless, laundry service, lift/ elevator, lobby, non smoking rooms, parking facilities-at cost, reception, room service, safe deposit box, smoke free hotel, solarium and tour desk.

The Best Decision We Made!

While planning our trip to Buenos Aires my husband and I were originally going to stay in a large chain hotel. But, after much research, we decided to stay at The Vain. Let me tell you, that was the best decision we made!!! The hotel staff were as good as you could find anywhere in the world: friendly, helpful, courteous, knowledgeable, bilingual, and just very sweet and wonderful-ALL of them! We found our room to be perfect for our stay: clean (thanks Marta!), comfortable bed, great shower, quiet, with all the amenities we needed. The AM breakfast was plentiful and delicious and the coffee amazing. It was great because the breakfast was so filling we could explore most of the day before having to worry about food for quite some time. The second floor lounge area and rooftop patio were great for downtime and relaxation and we were surprised on several occasions to be sitting in these areas and then suddenly treated to breads and juices by hotel staff. The area the hotel is located is absolutely perfect: close to the subway (which we took all over the city), close to excellent dining (more options than you can even eat at), and very safe (we did not feel uncomfortable once, even late at night). We came for a concert (Pearl Jam!) but left with a love for BA and the fine folks we met at The Vain.

Overnight in Buenos Aires

Arrived at 10pm and found room to be clean and modern. Too late for a Tango show but 2 locations really close to the hotel for late night dinner. Both cater to tourists. One was a pizza place, pretty hot in there and the other was a cute bistro with menus on chalkboards with huge, yummy portions. Waiter knew we were taking a long time to decipher the menu so he patiently explained each dish. Just stayed overnight so we can go to Iguazu falls the next day. Hotel called a taxi for us to go to the domestic airport, which was 10 min. away. Great location, would stay here when we come again!

Fantastic service

Vain Boutique is really a really cute little place, with nice rooms and decor, a great free breakfast, and a very comfortable upstairs lounge to hang out in. However, where the hotel really shines is the service: the people working there are fantastic. We originally had planned to only stay one night en route to New York from Patagonia, checking in at 2:00 am and checking back out again in the morning to head to the airport. However, at the airport we had a full day of massive flight complications, and we finally returned to Vain Boutique in defeat, unable to get home that day. (And with our luggage lost!) The same staff that checked us out that morning were at the desk and they warmly welcomed us back. The staff showed such concern over our travel troubles! We were quickly checked back in for the night (with a nice discount) and headed out for a great dinner in the neighborhood. The staff at Vain Boutique really helped to salvage a terrible day for us; I've never been treated so humanly by hotel staff anywhere, it was fantastic.

Perfect getaway

The hotel amenities are perfect. They don't get any better. The location is awesome! It's very close from cool bars and restaurants (walking distance). The rooms are very neat, comfortable and also very clean and fresh. The staff was the BEST! They were all very cool, nice and great people. Always willing to help. I'm planning on going back in a couple of months, and I will definetly stay at the Vain Boutique Hotel.

Nightlife tip: Not Applicable

Nightlife in BA starts at 1am ish and really gets going around 2:30am. I read it several times on the net but didn't really believe it, but seriously its true. We stayed at club til 5am and it was still going strong.

Gem hotel in Palermo, Buenos Aires

We really enjoyed this bright, up-to-date hotel. It was in a great neighborhood -- close to many restaurants, the subte, shopping, and museums. The staff was extremely helpful, and the upstairs common room was comfortable and airy. The rooms were not as huge as many Americans may be used to, but ours was very adequate for two people. The breakfast was wonderful -- fresh fruit, good pastries, as well as eggs and other items, if desired. The hotel allowed us to check-in early as we came in off an overnight flight, and also allowed us to stay past checkout prior to our return flight home. We wanted to stay at a smaller hotel that could be a place to hang out a bit, not just to sleep -- we were not disappointed. We would definitely stay at Vain again.

Entertainment tip: Not Applicable

We tend to stay away from 'touristy' entertainment while on vacation, but I would recommend attending a good tango show while in Buenos Aires. We went to the one recommended by the hotel (Esquina Carlos Gardel) and it was fabulous. I felt like I was transported back in time.
