Located in the lively Palermo Hollywood neighborhood
Palermo Viejo, literally meaning "Old Palermo," is an attractive area with oak-lined cobblestone streets and low historic buildings in the old Spanish style architecture. Palermo Viejo can be divided into two sections: Palermo Soho to the south and Palermo Hollywood to the north. Palermo Place is in Palermo Hollywood, the quieter (and not quite as gentrified) counterpart to Palermo Soho. Though Palermo Hollywood also has an active nightlife, it attracts an older crowd.
Boutique hotel Palermo Place is in the heart of Palermo Hollywood. Some attractions are within walking distance, such as the Botanical Gardens and the Buenos Aires Zoo, while others in Microcentro and Recoleta are a short drive away. The 26 rooms (four of which are smoking) are well-maintained and spacious, with Juliette balconies, sitting areas, plenty of closet space, and kitchenettes, which feature stainless-steel appliances, utensils, and linens (you can even have the fridge stocked prior to your arrival, for a fee). Throughout, the hotel’s decor is simple yet sophisticated, with rich, dark colors and modern furniture. And two outdoor decks provide relaxing spots for sunbathing. The hotel lacks an on-site restaurant, but guests are provided with vouchers for local eateries.
