Excellent boutique gem in the middle of Palermo

5 out of 5
by from Seattle, WA
Posted Aug 26, 2016
Pros: I enjoyed the service, the comfort of the rooms, the location, and the ambience.
Location: Restaurants, bars, museums.
The Hotel Krista is a wonderful location for exploring the Palermo area. There are many restaurants and bars in the surrounding blocks, as well as a few shops and boutiques. It's entry is modest, just a door on the street, but inside the hotel features beautiful, clean, comfortable rooms, several different sitting and relaxing common areas, a jacuzzi (not open in Winter), breakfast, and extremely helpful staff. They use a system of buzzing people in so security is very tight. The decor is quite modern. From the hotel, one can easily walk to eat, and there are numerous bus lines that can quickly take a visitor to the metro stations or other sights, and taxis are plentiful (although, that's true of pretty much anywhere in central BA). The nearest major area for sightseeing is the Parque Tres de Febrero, which is about a kilometer or so away and contains several gardens and fountains, the Botanical Garden and Japanese Garden and the Planetarium. I stayed at Hotel Krista for three days at the end of my trip and really enjoyed it as a perfect, relaxing location to cap off my travels in Argentina.

Pros: Nothing
Cons: Everything
One of the worst hotel experiences imaginable. What you read is on offer is nothing like what you get on arrival. Outright fraud.

Beautiful, historic hotel with great staff.

5 out of 5
by from New York
Posted Aug 20, 2015
Krista is a beautiful, old-world hotel full of charm and beautiful details. The staff are all excellent, friendly, and helpful. They really went above and beyond the necessary to make our stay great. Our room was very clean and the breakfast buffet was worth the little bit extra. Don't expect a typical American spread, but they were happy to make eggs and fresh squeezed orange juice at no additional charge. The location, within walking distance of many restaurants and public transportation, is ideal for tourists if a bit far from the center of the city.

Outstanding

5 out of 5
by from Rochester, MI
Posted Jul 28, 2015
Pros: Staff
Location: several restaurants near by; a 10 min walk to Palermo subte
We stayed for 5 nights in 2 rooms, they were clean and nice; breakfast was better than expected ( please note that eggs are not part of regular south American breakfast but if you ask they are more than willing to accommodate your request ); the most important strength of this hotel is the staff, we had a late flight, got there 1am and they were waiting for us with the friendliest attitude and the morning staff: Alejandro was always helpful with advice, tango show booking as well as taxi. They were also nice to send an email to notify of a forgotten item and will help to send it to a friend in BA. I always select my hotels based on reviews of prior guests, this time it was the right choice, they made us feel at home...

Good location

3 out of 5

Posted Feb 23, 2015
Pros: Stuff
Cons: Window view
Location: Palermo Hollywood
Even though this hotel has an excellent location, pleasing hotel stuff and the breakfast was excellent it’s biggest and simply unacceptable problem is that room we had does not have window with regular light. Window view was to the inside hall! I want to underline that we paid for the “luxurious” room, so it is simply improper to have windows with inside hall view.

Dear guest, Thank you very much for your feedback. We are very delighted that you could appreciate the warmth and friendliness of our staff, our breakfast and the location of the hotel, on a quiet street in the historical Palermo Hollywood district, surrounded by many restaurants, bars and design shops. At the same time, we regret to know that you did not enjoy your room, due to the fact that it didn´t have a window to the exterior. We would like to mention and remind you that our hotel is established in an early XX century house with the rooms, patios, garden and hallways characteristic of the architecture of that time, some of the luxurious rooms have windows to the garden and some of them to our patios, but all of them receive deeply daylight, except on stormy days. Finally, we would like to thank you again for posting your comment. Cordially, Cristina Marsden Manager

Excellent service in charming quiet environment

5 out of 5
by from Orcas Island, Washington, USA
Posted Oct 18, 2014
Pros: Staff are superb, they accommodated a vegan breakfast diet with no drama, very reasonable price for the quality of the experience.
Cons: Our shower somehow managed to leak although it wasn't obvious how so the bathroom was wet.
Location: Easy walk in the day to shopping, bars and cafes. Step out and grab a taxi or the staff will call one for your. Don't walk at night.
This little unassuming hotel on the main floor of an older building has a lovely charm with updated bathrooms, 18' ceilings and lovely little seating areas with skylights. Juliette and Alejandro treat you like royalty without being stuffy. They took care of the forms for our day trip to Uruguay and visas for Brazil, offered suggestions for activities and booked them for us, and the desk is always covered with security cameras for the main door and public areas. Charming aesthetic in hip neighborhood. I stayed in the largest room #1 which isn't really a suite but there was plenty of room for a roll away to sleep my son.
