Palermo Place in Palermo Hollywood | Buenos Aires, Argentina | Last night I spent it at the brand new Palermo Place Buenos Aires, located in the neighborhood of Palermo Hollywood. I would best define them as a basic, clean, modern accommodation option, more as an apartment with extra services than a hotel. Apartment units with all the basic services of a four stars hotel. Conveniently located walking distance to Palermo Soho and Las Canitas, 2 blocks from the subway station.
Palermo Place designed its rooms to truly provide you with a home away from home, and once again I think this is what defines and classifies them best. Although they promote themselves as a luxury boutique hotel, I would rate them as a modern apart complex, with fully equipped units and reduced hotel services. Prices per night range from USD 174 on depending on the season, room type and breakfast, which is a great price based on the quality of the units. I was hosted at a Super Deluxe City View Room on the 5th floor, featuring modern comforts, complimentary WI-FI, complimentary coffee in room, coffee maker, full bathroom amenities, bathrobes, full kitchenette, in room safe, LCD TV with international programming and movie channels, free local calls and faxes, and reasonable international LD rates. Extremely comfortable beds with the optional configuration of a King Size bed or two Twin Beds. Small bathroom, with in room sink.
I must be fully honest, Palermo Hollywood has never been one of my favorite districts of Buenos Aires, but I know that most of the times I stand on my own on this idea. Most tourist love this part of the city, due to its bohemian local personality, and the fact that some of the best restaurants in town are located here. So there you go, it is up to you to decide. Without a doubt you will get a very local porteño experience.
Small basic fitness room on the 7th floor with a workout machine, a treadmill and an elliptical. And outdoor space with deck chairs. On the 8th floor there is a rooftop terrace with a common space to host your own typical parrilladas “barbecues”.
Although the property does not have a food and beverage outlet or room service, every morning you may choose among several local options for your breakfast. Upon Check IN they will provide you with daily vouchers to be used at any of the many charming restaurants and cafeterias in the neighborhood. My favorite option was Panionly two blocks away. A classic Argentinean homemade breakfast, including the local delish – dulce de leche and homemade bread “Pan de Campo”. Since the units count with fully equipped kitchenette, you may choose to fix your own breakfast and meals, or take advantage of the food delivery from over 50 local restaurants. Palermo Place also offers the service of personal shopping and custom stocking of refrigerator and pantry prior to arrival
In conclusion, if you are looking for a plus quality accommodation option, more into experiencing Buenos Aires as a local, home away from home at a rather affordable price, then Palermo Place should be in your “To Consider” list in a heartbeat. Staff is friendly, bilingual and attentive to help you beyond expectations. If you are looking for a full service five star up hotel, located in the heart to the happening, maybe this is not your option.
