4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Very nice place to stay, for business and leisure. It has a very warm environment and a splendid service. I enjoyed a lot taking the shower under a beautiful glass with a nice view to the trees. Many thanks to all for a nice stay

We checked out many hotels online before booking this one. There are many different options in Buenos Aires, but we really found that Palermo is a good choice if you want something less touristic and prefer to blend in with the locals and this hotel was good value for money when we booked. Helpful staff Good breakfast Convenient location Spacious room We thought the bathroom layout was a bit uncomfortable, but otherwise nothing to complain about

We only stayed one night and the experience was great mostly because the staff, especially Carlos and Manque went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and took care of dinner reservations at a traditional parilla. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom was clean albeit tiny. Breakfast was plenty and delicious. Since we were only there for one night, it was more than sufficient.

This boutique hotel is in a quiet area near metro line D, about 4 k. from the airport. The room was fine and there is lots of security so it is very safe. The staff were very helpful and breakfast was great as we basically could have what we wanted. There is a place to change money very close by and they give you a great exchange rate. Ask the staff where it is, as it is hidden and does not advertise as being a money exchange. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Vain is an excellent choice for those looking for a quaint, friendly and convenient place to stay. The staff is courteous and knowledgeable, they make you feel like a local. Great location and fairly priced.

We enjoyed our stay in this hotel because of the excellent location and the warm hospitality of Carlos( Receptionist ). Rooms are not as beautiful as in the pictures. We found the room too small and bathroom too noisy.

Vain was the perfect place to stay to blend nightlife in Palermo with excellent access to the Subte to see the whole city. The hotel is..... just cool. With many common space areas with awesome light. The staff was so helpful yet not intrusive. The breakfast was a relaxing and delicious addition.

I stopped in Buenos Aires for 3 days after a 7-day trip to Mendoza. This hotel was perfect for me because I came to mostly sightsee and did not need a huge room. The price was right. Free breakfast in the lobby was a nice bonus. Great coffee!!

The Vain staff are exceptionally professional and compassionate - they treat you like family! We don't usually ask for help when we stay at hotels, but since it was a Spanish speaking country we did have to periodically ask for assistance. They gladly and generously helped us arrange taxis, laundry service, ferry tickets, and food recommendations - and always with a genuine smile. They truly want to make your stay the best experience possible. We loved our room (#302), very clean, high ceilings, balcony and shower/tub is outside (enclosed in glass). There is an incredible attention to detail and caring about your comfort. The Vain Hotel has many other qualities that also make it stand out - they offer you a free welcome drink, breakfast is made to order, a second floor lounge has juice, tea and cookies in the afternoon. They are eco-friendly - every day they will refill a bottle with filtered water so you don't have to buy plastic bottles. The outside deck and hot tub are a nice place to relax between sightseeing. The location couldn't be better - it's just a 10-20 minute walk north to beautiful parks (Japanese Garden, Palermo Bosque, Botanical Gardens, Parque Tres de Febrero) and it is nestled in the Palermo neighborhood filled with a wide range of restaurants, pastry and ice cream shops, stores and bars. It is a very safe neighborhood to walk around day and night. Great artisan outdoor markets are nearby at Plaza Serrano and Plaza Palermo Viejo (Plaza Armenia). After walking the majority of the city, we did not see a hotel or location in which we would have rather stayed. There is a kindness and integrity to the Vain staff that we have never encountered at another hotel. We only have wonderful things to say about the team at Vain and would gladly return and recommend them to anyone!

The hotel is small and located in the best district in Buenos Aires for shopping, restaurants, craft breweries and fun bars. Also a short walking distance to the subway to get anywhere else in town. The staff was very friendly and the price includes a full, wonderful breakfast every morning. Also the rooftop has a great indoor and outdoor seating are to relax with a nice glass of wine -- and a hot tub ! I would definitely stay here again.
