I came across this beautiful place just by chance, when my flight was cancelled due to the new pandemic restrictions and had basically nowhere to spend the night at. Luckily I found a room at Raco Hotel through Booking.com and made a last minute reservation (best decision ever!) I was inmediately contacted by the front desk manager, Natalia, who very kindly offered to arrange a taxi for me from Ezeiza airport (it was close to midnight and the international airport is 25.000 miles away from the city), so I accepted at once - The hotel itself is more like a guest house; a magnificient and wonderfully conserved 19th century building, with a large patio and lots of open air spaces (a great tip to have into account in these "new reality" times). The rooms are clean and cozy, and the recepcionist (Carolina) was very friendly, making me feel at home as soon as I arrived. She suggested me to have a wake up call, since my flight departed early in the morning. All in all, I had a short but very satisfactory stay, and definitely recomend this lovely small hotel
Live where the Porteños live! Peaceful and boutique

Almagro is no way the first area you visit as tourist in BsAs. There’s simply not that much happening there. That's of course the exact same reason why you also get that sought after «authentic» experience, and you wouldn’t want to miss it. The happenings of Microcentro/Palermo are still pretty close, and in Almagro you feel like a Porteño. The streets are calm and leafy and the restaurants lively and local. Nearby Avenida Rivadavia is a noisy, charming mess and timeless Café Violetas the essence of BsAs cafés. The hotel is boutique and peaceful, with its narrow chess tiled two floored patio, green plants and surrounding rooms. The red room on the second is spacious and clean, with a huge comfortable bed. The calmness of the patio makes reading in the doorway with a cold Quilmes a delight. The staff is really helpful and professional, in the friendly and personal way. There are some challenges with the water; it sometimes disappears, or the hot water takes a while. I also think the breakfast could be even better outside in the daylight patio, instead of the darker basement. The overall experience is however a great value choice you should definitely try, for a nice Porteño feel.

It’s a renovated old hotel with many original features. In many ways it’s very quaint. I had a balcony but the door on the outside was not well maintained. The fixtures and fittings are a good standard but for some reason it took a long time for hot water to come out of the shower. The staff are lovely and friendly. There is no signage on the door so keep buzzing to get someone to come to the door.
A very nice experience, well worth the money!

After staying at hostels in Buenos Aires for 3 months, sharing rooms with sweaty back-packers, I thought I'd treat myself with a private room in a nice hotel for my last week there. Next to Holiday-in's and Hilton's this was one of the cheapest nice hotels I could find and I had as good of an experience here as I would have, had I stayed at any of the expensive, big-chain hotels. The staff was sweet, competent and helpful. (Leo, one of the receptionists, is the only Norwegian speaking non-Norwegian I have ever met abroad!) My room had it's own little balcony, and a very spacious shower. There is a big living area in the basement with comfortable colours and chairs, nice for relaxing evenings. The location is very nice, a few minutes with the u-train and you are in the centrum area. This is definitely the place to stay for a week or two in Buenos Aires!
Very pleasant stat

This a very cosy and pretty boutique little hotel in heart of Buenos Aires. There is a central courtyard with room spread around it. Great decor in keeping with the flavour of the city. Great, attentive staff, good food. Highly recommended
