San Telmo Colonial Hotel Boutique
Reviewed 22 May 2015

I stayed here to take advantage of being near the San Telmo Sunday Market and that was a fabulous experience. But also, the tango dancing and music in the adjoining plaza was magnificent! I was right in the middle of the action! The hotel was unique and included a balcony and staircase in my single, affordable room. I recommend it to everyone who is visiting Buenos Aires!

Room Tip: Get a front room with balcony if possible!

We stayed in Colonial in December 2013, while there was a heat wave in buenos aires. Ines who is the owner made us feel very welcome, we were offered water and coffee, which was nice after we had been travelling overnight. Ines is very helpful and would try her best to help. She also speaks good English.
There is a lovely patio from where the room are accessed. The rooms were basic but comfortable with a small tea kitchen, so we could make our own tea and coffe. One of the room was like a small flat and the kitchen had utensils so you could prepare a meal. Both rooms had a cooker and fridge. The bathroom in our bedroom was very nice. In the flat the bathroom just needed some repair, but worked fine. Everywhere was nice nod clean.
One evening my niece who has a 3 month baby visited us and we were able to sit in the patio and eat and relax away from any noise. The place is very safe as the front door is always kept locked, so after a busy day sightseeing in Buenos Aires it was lovely to come home and relax inside in the room or outside on the patio which is small and cosy. The location is great, there is some cafe' near by where you can have breakfast, there is the Sunday San telmo market. A Milonga club and a great indoor food marke with very nice meat and cheese. We also located a small kiosk round the corner who was open all night and a laundry near by. the Colonial Is a very nice place to stay, staff were all very friendly.It is nice and homely and we got the feeling of how it is to live in San telmo. If you like international hotels this is not the place for you. (We were 4 adults)

Room Tip: The best would be to contact the owner for advice as they all varied. There is no children activity...

We stood for three nights. The location is great, just between La Boca and the center. Everything in walking distance. Miriam is the heart of this small B&B hostel and gives you every information you ask for. OK the rooms would need some paint but all was clean and in relation to the price. Getting breakfast in a nearby restaurant is a experience and brings you in contact with the local people. The closed by Telemo Sunday market is a must. We felt very welcome there. When you search for luxury hotel, then is this the wrong place.

Stayed here for about 2 weeks.
Calm location, very friendly owner & staff.
Well the place is a bit "used" and could need some work done (refurbishing etc) but for a moderate price its ok! Great access to San Telmo Night Life & antiques, all very close!

I agree to some other comment, more of a hostel than hotel, but as said for the price that is asked its fully ok! Felt home here & we were always welcome & got good tips for visiting B.A. & Mar de Plata. Here the beeing home & familiy character counts more than beeing into a hotel.
Depending on what you expect & want you can be right here or wrong.

The location of the place isn't bad.
And that's all. I have been in lots of hotels, and this one is for sure the worst in the last years. Not clean, dark rooms, old, ... Breakfast is in a ‘café notable’, but not one of the bests.
The entire house is in a bad need of refurbishment.
The manager is a nice woman.
I spent two nights and left.
My advice: try another place
