About this Hotel

Price From $165

'Hood Palermo Soho, on a quiet cobblestoned street lined with tipa trees, just a block from the site of writer Jorge Luis Borges's childhood home. Nearby are hip restaurants and trendy boutiques, making the area feel a bit like Manhattan's SoHo district.

First Impression An elegant, early-20th-century mansion with a stately façade, black-and-white marble floors, a central staircase, and lofty ceilings. Modern artwork, an efficient elevator, Wi-Fi, and copies of David Brooks's Bobos in Paradise in the common area all remind you we're in the 21st century.

Rooms Seven rooms are decorated by theme: Argentine, Art deco, Classic, Minimalist, Pop, Rationalist, and Techno. The "deluxe" Pop room is playfully rendered in orange and green, with a shallow, street-facing balcony. Quiet-seekers should consider the Minimalist room: It faces a serene terrace filled with plants.

Plus A tiny boutique hotel with many of the amenities of a full service hotel, such as a restaurant and an ample, 24/7 staff.

Minus Word is out, and there are only seven spaces: Book two to three months in advance.

Free Wi-Fi? Yes, in all rooms and public areas.

Credit Cards Accepted AmEx, MC, Visa.

Details Doubles from $165.
