Hotel Bys Palermo3.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
It was rated as 4* on Priceline when it was booked. Upon arrival, the outside seemed to be modern. The reception area is small compared to a normal 4* hotel. The room appeared to be very simple but clean, including the bathroom, which was positive. Bed was confortable. So simple, I would give a good 2* or at most a 3*. The breakfast was acceptable. The staff at the reception was helpful and gave hints. However, we noticed that Palermo restaurant areas are actually 20mins walk from the hotel. Acceptable hotel, but not a 4*. At least, you get what you pay for.
I stayed here a couple of times on business and both times I stayed at the Bys (pronounced like biss). Room are no-nonsense and large. Staff is friendly and helpful. There is no bar but there are lots of bars and restos in the area. If you're visiting Buenos Aires as a tourist then there are probably better, more central options. But the Palermo neighbourhood has quite a good vibe. I particularly like the Plaza Serrano, about 15min walk, that is filled with casual local joints ranging from polished options that are a little more upscale to some very soul-satisfying dives with great prices and local flavours.
Nice property, comfortable room, good service. Fairly new or newly renovated, so still shiny. The location could be better: it is Palermo, but not much in walking distance. Plan on taking a taxi where ever you want to go. Breakfast average. The actual, discounted rate (well-below the rack rate) a pretty good value.
I was surprised of this excellent hotel in the middle of Palermo neighborhood ( an upscale neighborhood in Buenos Aires ) very comfortable and breakfast (free) is excellent. Also they have computers available for customers if you wish to surf the Net. I will definitely stay here in my next visit.
The staff was very friendly and resourceful. The room was comfortable. There's a mini-bar with items in it, but you can squeeze in some of your stuff to keep cool (like your water bottle). There's also a hair dryer. I didn't use the toiletries, so not sure about those. I had a view of the back of the room, which was not particularly nice, but I read that it was good because it was quiet, and that was true.My room was almost next to the elevator, which was good since the hallways can be dark sometimes. The breakfast was great - lots to choose from, and the fresh fruit is absolutely delicious! The wifi was very good in my room. The computers in the lobby were sometimes treacherously slow. The location is good if you're looking for somewhere quiet. It's about 5 blocks away from a subway station, and very close to a bunch of bus stations to take you to many different places. A block away, there's a stand where you can rent bicycles. Do not go to the restaurant that's almost next door (Bellagamba). I went there twice and it was absolutely horrible (the second time, there were pieces of plastic in my food). I didn't use the gym or pool at all, but I believe they each open around 10am, and the pool costs about 70 ARS per day. There's a good milonga a block or two away from the hotel, so check it out.
The hotel was very good, the staff very friendly, the rooms comfortable, the breakfast perfect to start the day. The kids used the pool and it was very good. I give a very good instead of excellent due to the location. It was not that close to the areas of interest for tourists. We booked through priceline which said that it was equivalent to a Marriot or Hyatt, which is not, but regardless it was a vey nice hotel.
This hotel is really lovely. Comfortable room, friendly reception, ample breakfast with nice hot food and plenty of fruit. Everything was absolutely perfect. Plus, there are many nice places to eat nearby (check Los Remanseros a couple of blocks away, it is a hidden gem!), you are in the middle of the gorgeous Palermo neighbourhood, and all the major attractions downtown are easily accessible by public transport.
I was there for a few days for a business trip and really didn't like it. The size of the room and bed was nice, however it was a little dirty, specially the bathroom, with old and poor quality towels. The breakfast was also poor with not so many choices and in a little place, so it was very crowded, one day I gave up waiting for a table and went for breakfast in a cafe nearby. At least 15 minutes walking to the nice part of Palermo. Wifi was really poor too, so it was hard for a business traveler.
Very convenient hotel for a conference I was attending in the area. Very friendly and helpful staff. Nice breakfast in the morning. But, on business I need some internet connection to work and prepare in the evenings. Hardly ever worked. Ok wireless in the lobby, horrible in the rooms. Too bad, otherwise I'd stay here again
Hotel staff were friendly and helpfull. The room was clean and nice decorated. Really big and comfortable bed! Air condition worked perfectly. All equipments found in room except hotel shoes, bathrub and moisture to skin. Allthought the towels are really comfortable. Hotel is located beautifull and peacefull area. Nice restaurants and coffee places are just few blocks away. Way to the nearest metro is about 10-15 minute walk. Breakfast is fresh and quite good. It should have some more proteins and vegetables. There was lots of different fruits and cakes/breads. Cheff was really fun and made us feel like home. I would sincerely recommend this hotel to everyone and if we go back to Buenos Aires we will go this hotel.
