My wife and I enjoyed 4 nights at Reyna Violeta, greatly enjoyed our stay, and felt that it was a good value. The staff was very welcoming and friendly. Different staff members were always available and helpful, speaking both Spanish and English, and gave good suggestions. Breakfast was typical pastries and coffee, but filling, with nice differences between each day like different fruit and fruit smoothies. The rooms are comfortable and face quiet courtyard areas, which are also a nice place to relax. We would recommend it most for couples of all ages, and it is a safe enough area for singles as well. I would not recommend it as much for a loud/party crowd, which has plenty of other lodging options. Reyna Violeta is a good 20 minute walk from the subte, which we did regularly, and is not as near to typical downtown attractions. However, this location works very well because it is a safe and easy walk to a variety of restaurants. On a typical day, you can easily walk to the subte in the morning, visit other barrios, then return to Palermo in the evening and enjoy dinner, and then a stroll home. Thanks Pablo and staff for a great stay!
