Everything was amazing. Staff went out of their way to help us. Service was excellent. Will definitely be staying here again when I return.

Beautiful hotel, amazing location, fantastic staff

The hotel is in a beautiful building. All the rooms are well decorated and comfortable. It is located on a street that is quiet, yet central to the Palermo neighborhood. And the staff is great: we were staying there on Christmas Eve when almost everything was closed, but the woman at the reception made us feel welcome and provided everything we needed.

Very charming hotel with absolutely amazing staff

Absolutely wonderful staff, the most courteous and helpful people

The mattress was a bit too soft but I guess it has a lot to do with individual habits

This was our first visit to Buenos Aires and staying at the Magnolia Hotel Boutique was perfect for us. The hotel itself

The hotel is delightful. A joy to be in. Felt like home.

No negatives to speak of.

Wonderful stay

Lovely, friendly staff; nice large room; very clean; thoughtful extra touches; easy walking distance to restaurants and bars in Palermo, BA. Would definitely stay again.

It wasn't a big deal for us, but just to mention that the cleaning staff came into our room without knocking while we were in bed (in the early afternoon), which was a little awkward.

A hidden gem in Buenos Aires xx

Ideally situated in the middle of the Palermo district, this beautiful old house has been sim perfectly restored to make a fantastic hotel, the staff are second to none they bend over backwards to cater for your every need. This hotel is a hidden gem in Buenos Aires 👍

Delightful final two night stop before our return home.

The traditional furnishings with a modern feel. The staff were exceptionally helpful and pleasant. Personal breakfast service with good choice of well presented food. Secure entrance and very speedy to answer the bell.

Small thing, but my bedside light could only be turned off on my husband’s side of the bed. Otherwise could not fault them!

The peaceful and quiet location and ambience. The friendly and helpful staff. Great welcome coffee. Welcome wine with nuts which you can get in your room, the rooftop patio, or lobby. The prearranged private transport to and from the EZE and AEP. Tasty breakfast in the room at 3:30 am for our early departure!

Very nice small hotel

Location: walk easily every where in Palermo Reception: extremely nice and helpful Breakfast: impeccable quality Very intimate boutique hotel, with charming, large and clean room, NETFIX as extra(!) HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Only a small detail: breakfast is only served at 8 AM , and no fridge within the room, nor do we have cold water bottle to drink after a day walking outside

A fantastic find

The beautiful building, the spotless spacious room, the breakfast and above all, the wonderful staff.

Good room for staying in this area.

The property had nice character, the hotel had arranged pick up from the airport and the room was really nice. The hotel is a short walk from cafes bars and restaurants and it’s easy to get a taxi to other parts of town.

Utterly Charming Hotel in cool area with wonderful staff

Very homely and charming. I liked the front room lounge for having a wine. The staff were LOVELY, the breakfast ws lovely and it is a very short walk to the hippest area in Buenes Aires. I loved this hotel, it just had a lovely vibe and the staff all speak english.

There was nothing that I didn't like. If I was being picky, Id have liked to be able to make a cup of tea to drink in my room but thats a very small thing in the scheme of how lovely this hotel is.

A great place to stay in BsAs

The location is good, the place is neat and quiet with a great breakfast. It was a bit chilly this time of year but we got an extra blanket and heater from staff.

It’s really hard to get into and out from the shower.
