I can't say enough about how warm and welcoming, knowledgable and helpful the staff is at Babel. The hotel is small and has the feel of a bed and breakfast. Coming back after a long day and evening in Buenos Aires is like coming home to family. There is always a smiling face behind the counter/bar. No matter how late it is, you want to sit down and chat about the day, ask questions, and plan the itinerary for the next day over a glass of wine. The rooms are quite small, but very comfortable and clean. The breakfast is cooked to order and very good. The front door is kept locked at all times, but is usually opened in greeting before you have a chance to ring the bell. Because we were told that the rooms with windows facing the street can be a little noisy, we opted for a room with no window but with shuttered French doors facing the courtyard. Since we felt so safe and secure there, we were able to leave the French doors open on warm nights with just the shutters closed for privacy. This may not be the most luxurious hotel in B.A., but I'm sure it is one of the most homey and welcoming. I would definitely recommend Babel to anyone who is looking for a home away from home in Buenos Aires.
