Classic Boutique Hotel with Lots of Character

Rooney's Boutique hotel is the former residence of the poet and writer, Leopoldo Lugones, and is set amidst numerous milongas, tango schools, cafes, restaurants and theatres. This stunning building has long been part of Buenos Aires' cultural landscape.

It promises a relaxing and comfortable atmosphere and offers 14 lovingly designed and individual suites, each with their own decor and taste, as well as a lounge bar, cafe and tango patio.

Paula Piatti is the thoughtful interior designer, and the design is simple but tasteful, and offers its visitors an oasis of calm in a city that never sleeps. The unique and authentic building with the great location make Rooney's boutique hotel the ideal choice for visitors who want an insight into the real Buenos Aires.


  • Surrounded by the original Milongas, tango schools, theatres, cafes and restaurants of Buenos Aires, guests will be able to soak up the rich culture of this fabulous city by staying in this great location
  • Free tango lessons are a great plus-point for this hotel and not many hotels do offer this 
  • Small hotel with high levels of service and attention to detail
  • Rooms are a perfect blend of authentic and are classic in their decor but are comfortable and offer all modern amenities

In Our Opinion

"If you are looking for something other than a large hotel amongst the hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, and perhaps want to try a tango lesson or two, Rooney's is a great option for your holiday to Argentina"

Although the hotel is small and doesn't have a huge array of facilities, some of the services that it provides to its guests are a great bonus and much better than other hotels of its size. The services that Rooneys provides are:

  •  Buffet breakfast
  •  24-hour concierge desk
  •  Hi-speed wi-fi internet access
  •  Bilingual staff
  •  Cable TV
  •  24 Hour medical emergency staff
  •  Lounge bar
  •  Laundry and dryer service
  •  Luggage storage available
  •  Room service
  •  Parking
  •  Corporal massage service

Rooney's Boutique Hotel is located in the heart of Buenos Aires, just a few blocks from the Obelisk, just off the main avenues of this pulsating city and overlooking Avenida Callao and metres from Avenida Corriente.

The Milongas, tango schools, theatres and cafes are part of the cultural landscape  of this area. Hence, it is known as the "Broadway of Buenos Aires, the street that never sleeps" with coloured banners along the avenue and the mythical Obelisco in sight.

This excellent location enables you to walk to the main tourists attractions of Buenos Aires - Recoleta, Plaza De Mayo, Casa Rosada, Congresso, Puerto Madero - all are within easy walking distance.

One block from the hotel, the subway gives you easy & economic access to the whole city and beyond. Other forms of transport such as taxis and buses are available at the door of the hotel.

The location makes it a great hotel for those who are first-time visitors to Buenos Aires or want to be in the centre of the action.
