Great staff; noisy air-conditioning units

Posted Aug 31, 2014
Pros: The staff; the rooftop terrace; the location
Cons: Quieter-running aircon units; the breakfast
Location: Good for exploring Palermo: a 5-minute walk to Palermo Viejo (lots of restaurants, shops and cafes); 5-10 min walk to subte (line D)
The rooms were fairly simple, but the comfort was fine and they were clean (except that it seems that under the beds was not often vacuumed). The setting, multiple levels around some little interior courtyards had some atmosphere and the rooftop terrace with its loungers and parasols would be lovely in warmer weather and there was a space to relax on the ground floor&1st floor-close to the front desk. Wifi was available although the signal was very weak except in the ground and 1st-floor common areas. Breakfast was available - at a supplement - but was pretty small, consisting of two Argentine croissants (small), a glass of orange juice and tea or coffee (their teapots had character!) The common bathrooms were slightly the worse for wear, but were kept clean. The worst thing about this hotel for me was the noise from the air-conditioner units mounted in locations where the noise carries down some of the internal courtyards and/or through the ceilings of the rooms from the roof above - this affects quite a high proportion of the ensuite rooms. This may not be a problem for you if you are a heavy sleeper, but unless you are I would not recommend it - even during winter, which is when I stayed (it seems some guests were using their air-conditioning to heat their rooms). The best thing about the hotel was the staff, who were friendly, kind and helpful - for example, one greeted me by name each morning& they gave me advice about where to go and what to see in the area & city

Good location for Palermo nightlife.

Posted Jun 30, 2014
Pros: The people here were fantastic and everything went smoothly. Just what was required, perfect for our stay.
Cons: The rooms to enclose heat, our air con in summer could be better sealed.
Location: Great location in Palermo, walking distance to many restaurants and bars. Great location if looking to party or enjoy local restaurants and bars.
Great staff, exceptionally friendly and helpful. Rooms are comfortable but due to the size of our one are challenging to eat being non modern facility. Lots of great common areas to relax, good setup.

Good location for Palermo Soho

Posted May 18, 2014
Pros: Great location, near all good restaurants, bars and shops in Palermo Soho and Hollywood. A 10 minute walk to the subte.
Cons: Booking - we didnĀ“t realise we had booked a room with shared bathroom until we arrived. Changed it easily on arrival.
Had a leak in bathroom and staff changed our room instantly. Very pleasant, efficient staff.

Good Value

This hotel is very old, but it is clean. A major plus is air conditioning; the major minus is the fact that Wi-Fi doesn't reach all of the rooms, requiring a trip down to the lobby. However, the staff is extremely helpful, and the neighborhood is excellent. It was an enjoyable stay.

Great hotel in Palermo Soho.

Hotel Costa Rica is a lovely boutique hotel on a redeveloped old house. Service was great and the place is beautiful. Location is quite good, just a couple of blocks away from restaurants and other shops. Overall great hotel.
