Patios was a nice surprise for Buenos Aires. A better value than the more expensive place we stayed last time.

Nice hotel- close to main attractions.

Pros: It has character and it's clean and comfortable.
Cons: Little things seem to be in disrepair-i.e. No hot water for a couple of hours, air conditioning not working- had to change rooms.
Location: It is a short walk to the centre of town and some of the more popular shopping areas in Buenos Aires.
Hotel is very nice in older part of Buenos Aires. It has many patios for relaxing and a roof-top pool. Breakfast and lunch are available in the hotel. There are many reastaurants nearby, but they don't all accept other currency. Ask before you order. There were issues while we were there, but the staff was very accommodating. The hotel also offers transfers to airport or cruise terminal at an extra charge.

Patios de San Telmo was absolutely wonderful. Our room was a double with a private bathroom. The room was kept tidy by the staff, bed was comfortable, and most importantly - there was centralized air conditioning! The a/c was a blessing as we visited during the hot summertime period. Front desk staff were very friendly and helpful in providing local restaurants recommendations and suggested places to visit. The hotel is located in a good neighborhood, close to many places within walking distance or a quick taxi ride. I would definitely stay at this location again.

Pros: The look couldn't be beat! The interior patios and porches and fixtures were amazing!
Location: There were several restaurants near by, all the shopping you can ask for is maybe a ten minute walk away.
When our tour guide never showed up to pick us up, Juan gave us a map and a "make-your-own" tour to follow. He and his female counterpart whose name I'm ashamed to not remember made several calls to the tour company and were very accommodating to my daughter and me. Juan also arranged our transportation back to the airport. Thanks for everything! We had a really good time. The hotel and the restaurant both looked very "authentic", we felt like we sufficiently experienced Argentinian culture.

Pretty good location in walking distance to the subway and many tourist sites. Hotel is good with friendly staff. Only problem I had was the hot water in the shower fluctuating wildly. Other than that, a great place to stay.

Nice charming hotel with bad internet connection

Pros: Nice deco, clean and fresh smelling lobby and rooms. Beds were clean. The restaurant is really nice with a ton of vegetarian options (a rarity in BA)
Cons: Fix the problems promptly and thank your guests for pointing those out to you.
Location: San Telmo is great location, close to several historical landmarks and Sunday Flea market.
I booked this hotel for a week hoping to get some work done while I was attending a conference. The place is nice but their internet service was a huge let down. The connection was patchy and I had to make several calls to the front desk to get it fixed (which was never fixed). The rooms were generally dark (low lighting) and lamps by the bedside didn't work. The staff at the desk didn't care even when i called them several times to get it fixed. I was told that it will be fixed by the evening but it was never fixed during my entire 7 day stay! The shower had only half door (strange) and i had to deal with flooded toilet area each time i took a shower.

Great San Telmo location

4 out of 5
Posted Apr 18, 2016
Pros: The people at the desk and its location
Cons: Wi Fi -critical for travelers relying on email (vs phone) to communicate. Bathroom sinks & faucet (go for function, not beauty)
Location: Close to many sights (walkable): cafes and restaurants (e.g. Gran Parilla, La Poesia) and close to the Sunday market, Pl. Dorrego and Pl de Mayo...
Patios de San Telmo is in the heart of an active neighborhood- area is a bit gritty, but safe and the people (in the hotel and on the street) are friendly and helpful. Patios has great security and we never felt unsafe at any time. We were in BA for 10 days and had no trouble whatsoever- just take usual pickpocket precautions. The hotel is nicely decorated; we stayed in room 203 which others have noted, faces the street and therefore, the usual neighborhood street noise (weekends were a bit noisy). Quieter rooms face the courtyard. Note that this is a small place, and each room is a little different from the others. Recommend you ask to see the room first. After one night, when we tried to move to a quieter room, none were available- so a limitation. That said, our room was a superior, larger room and in the end, we were fine with it. Cafe downstairs has outstanding coffee; we did not get the breakfast option. Best feature of Patios: the folks at the desk, especially Esteban and Juan- they were friendly, helpful, gave us right-on advice about restaurants, places to see, safety; they reliably arranged taxi and airport transport. One other negative: weak WiFi in the rooms (good in lobby and cafe). We were attending a conference and email was our only means to communicate w/ other attendees (eg to arrange dinner, drinks etc) since cell service was so expensive to buy for the trip.

Nice boutique hotel with exceptional service

I really enjoyed my stay at Patios de San Telmo. The one thing that stood out for me was the great customer service at the front desk. Every time I went past reception I would always get greeted by first name. Rooms were nice and cozy. I have nothing but positive things to say about my experience here.
