This lovely b&b is a great place to stay in Buenos Aires. It's not in the centre but this is in many ways an advantage, particularly as it's in a nice, residential district (Palermo) and very close to the metro and great restaurants. The rooms are bright and comfortable, the owner/host is very friendly, helpful and welcoming, the breakfast is...

This delightful guest house, in the Palermo district, is run by a welcoming, multi-lingual Swiss woman who has completely renovated the house and created clean, spare, comfortable, aesthetically beautiful accomodations. Public transportation is nearby. Breakfast was more than adequate and featured fresh fruit and orange juice, homemade jams, breads and ham and cheese.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Casa Sol & Sombra is a private house in the classic argentinian style from the 1920's. The original floor, high ceilings and details of the antique construction are very well preserved . The house is a very quite and comfortable place, surrounded with plants, where you can relax and have a break from the excitement of the city. Casa Sol & Sombra is not only a house, it has a history, starting with Erika in 2005, a swiss lady who fell in love with Tango and decided to share her passion for Argentina in the blue house. 10 years later, she came back to her roots and now with Belén, Casa Sol & Sombra continues to provide travellers an excellent level of hospitality and comfort in what is an oasis in Buenos Aires for guests who want to share in their passion for Argentina. The house has an strategic location, located in Almagro neighborhood, very close to milongas and restaurants. The metro is a 5-10 minute walk and other transport services are also available. The Palermo neighborhood is a 10-15 minute walk and the main city attractions are very accessible from the house. Casa Sol & Sombras has 5 beautiful bedrooms (4 double and 1 triple). All of them have private bathrooms, big built-in closets and are decorated with art from local artists. There are a variety of common areas for relaxing and socializing with other guests, the beautiful living room, a comfortable kitchen, two quiet patios and a big outdoor terrace are always available. There is also a courtesy toilet connected to the common areas. Free WIFI is available all around the house including the bedrooms and the different common areas indoors and outdoors.
