The Livian Guesthouse is quite simply amazing. As soon as you arrive you are made to feel at home by the girls on reception who were brilliant throughout our stay. On arrival we was upgraded to one of the superior rooms of the hotel which was absolutely brilliant. The whole atmosphere of the hotel is extremly laid back which in...

We ended up staying here for 10 nights because it was so comfortable and homely. The owner and staff are all very nice and helpful. Rooms and the house itself has lots of character. Each room has its own style. Breakfast is decent also. We enjoyed relaxing in the living room. Showers are powerful and hot and beds are comfortable....

Hi all, I enjoyed my stay in Livian. The stuff is lovely, very private, helpful and you feel like at home. I stayed alone because my son was studying there for half a year. Metro station is about a 10 minute walk, the buses are leaving in front of the house going downtown to Micro etc.Every room has a different...

We absolutely loved our time at Livian. Each room of the converted house was so full of charm and style (especially The Kiss!), common areas were beautiful with many sweet touches (piano in lounge, soft classical music playing in the kitchen, etc.) breakfast simple but lovely. Staff always around and helpful. We will recommend Livian Guesthouse to anyone we know...

Situated close to downtown Palermo AND to an metro (subte) station but still in a rather quiet area, the Livian Guesthouse presetns itself as an ideal starting point for a Buenos Aires discovery tour.

Old house in Palermo, great choice for those looking for a piece of antiquity in the trendy suburb of Palermo. All staff are very incredibly nice and helpful. The location is not the best in palermo, but Livian is definitely one of your best options in Buenos Aires

Thank you for taking the time to write about us!

This is a townhouse in the suburb of Palermo, in a fairly quiet street. Inside it is like a family home (where the family had visited India extensively, from the artefacts displayed around the rooms). The rooms have names rather than numbers - we were in the Blue Room on the first floor. Along the corridor were doors to a...

Staying in Palermo

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.
