Location was really convenient. Room was decent. Bathroom was a bit annoying. The door did not want to stay closed and there was some noise coming from the WC. Breakfast was just fine, a combination of healthy girly stuff like fruits and muesli, and eggs and chorizo variation for the boys. What was really exceptional was the reception staff. Both... More

I stayed at Livian for my first night in Buenos Aires. Every person who worked there who I came across was really lovely. My only "complaint" (but not really) was that I got locked out of my room because the key wouldn't work. The person at reception gave me some cerveza on the house, and eventually put me up in...

The place is very nice and cozy. The staff (I've talked mostly to lovely Pilar) is friendly, well informed and pleasant. The rooms (vintage furniture) are nice though not all have private bathrooms. There is also a very good place to work on computer or play the piano. There is a good terrace where you can chill. Very good location... More

I loved my stay at the Livian Guest House. It was really loved the room. Very cute and peaceful. It was probably the only place I was able to get a good night's rest. The staff were really cool and great to chat with. They were very accommodating. Breakfast was a really nice perk. Plentiful, cakes, bread, coffee, and fruit.... More

Staying at Livian Guesthouse was like being in someone’s home. The furnishings are showing some wear, but the bed was comfortable. The people working there were very friendly and helpful, suggesting restaurants, arranging for airport pick up, and even calling to confirm a dinner reservation we had made online. The guesthouse is convenient to things in Palermo, yet in a... More

Words cannot express just how much I enjoyed and was grateful for my stay at Livian Guest House. We moved from a highly rated and nice, but unsuitable hostel which was only slightly cheaper - but the difference was immense and incomparable. From the moment I walked in, I was in love with the quaintness, decor, and thoughtfulness of the... More

Livian Guest House was more than I expected. It wasn't just relaxing but it was a home environment, where I felt cared for and welcomed. I was lucky enough to spend my last six days in Buenos Aires, at Livian. The place is truly a little piece of heaven, from the gorgeous rooms, the common areas to the beautiful outdoor... More

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.
