We stayed here for three nights over Christmas. The area was very quiet on Christmas day, but was otherwise a fun neighborhood with tons of restaurants, bars, and shops. It is a little "edgier" in some places, but we didn't feel unsafe. We kept an eye out around us and had no issues. The best part about this hotel was...

First impression: I had just lugged my suitcase a couple of blocks from the Plaza Italia subway stop on a warm summer afternoon, and the desk clerk offered me a glass of ice water. The staff at the Vain continued to deliver friendly, helpful service. Thames is a quiet shady street; the next street over, Borges, has many good shops...

We spent 2 nights at the Vain Boutique Hotel in the Palermo Soho district of Buenos Aires, Argentina. The hotel is perfect! The Hotel staff could not have been nicer and more accommodating.

I had a very pleasant stay at Vain Boutique hotel recently. The hotel staffs were exceptionally friendly and helpful; they offered us very tailored services and recommendation around the neighborhood. The room and service is worthy of the money. The hotel itself isn't big, but with a nice lounge at the roof top and at good location

Neighbourhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighbourhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favourite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in the heart of Palermo Viejo neighborhood, only 15 minutes away from the main tourist attractions, VAIN Boutique Hotel gives the possibility of having another alternative to the noisy BA downtown. It preserves the "Porteno" neighborhood feeling, combined with a bohemian and avant-garde mixture that can be sensed in the variety of stores, from fashion designers, antique and design furniture to coffee shops, fashion restaurants and bars, along with the traditional ones. ... more   less
