Overview

The Review

Tucked away on a quiet street in Palermo Soho — a trendy bohemian enclave and one of Buenos Aires’s overlooked neighborhoods — the discreet Legado Mitico is situated in an early-20th-century townhouse and has only 11 guestrooms, each tastefully themed around a prominent Argentinean. There’s La Arrabalera, with photos of tango legend Tita Merello; El Escritor, which displays mementos of writer Jorge Luis Borges; and even La Contestataria where framed drawings of the country’s famed cartoon figure Mafalda hang above the bed.

All of these details are carefully edited and arranged against white and beige backdrops. Along with the dark wood furniture and open fireplaces, the overall effect is stately and masculine — not at all a quick grab for attention. For a city property, the rooms are large, ranging from 226 to 279 square feet.

The library is especially spacious, with black leather couches, row upon row of tomes and an Argentinean flag. It was like a private corner of the city where I could delve into its rich history undisturbed. While there’s no restaurant, a breakfast buffet is served in the light-filled lounge, and wine is available by the glass. There are plenty of good eateries in the neighborhood, and the staff can help you order takeout and set up a spread in one of the public spaces.

The rooftop is called the Solarium, and it has a Jacuzzi surrounded by a wood deck and greenery, as well as French doors that open onto an adjacent patio outfitted with a fireplace for cooler evenings. From my cozy perch I gazed at BA’s buildings jutting up into the sky.

Yes, it’s a five-minute walk to the nearest subway station, but I didn’t mind, because taxis are cheap and plentiful, and the hip vibe of the neighborhood is a draw in itself. (In fact, many Argentineans check in for a stay.) Despite the country’s turbulent past, its present incarnation here is nothing but inspirational.

a boutique hotel in a very pleasant neighbourhood
Reviewed 1 week ago

this boutique hotel only has 11 rooms which allows for a personal approach by the staff. Bedrooms are spacious and very comfortable and the public areas well appointed and peaceful. Each room has a specific theme which is reflected in the furnishings.
Legado Mitico is very well located in the Palermo neighbourhood allowing easy and safe access to the many bars and restaurants in the immediate area. Breakfast is ok but not outstanding.
Overall, a perfect hotel for those who look for understated luxury and a very peaceful environment while exploring the city. Probably less for those preferring extensive in-house facilities such as gym etc

Great boutique hotel
Reviewed 1 week ago

A beautiful recommendation from our agent. Great location for restaurants and bars .. with a good vibe ! Hotel rooms are excellent and staff very helpful. We were told to bring American dollars but didn’t find that many places wanted them .. found it easy to pay on cards but you need Argentina dollars to tip. City tour excellent .. gives you a good feel for city

Fantastic Location, Fantastic Service

This hotel is located in Palermo (SOHO) and is quite beautiful and quaint. The rooms had everything we needed and there were several fun bars and restaurants within a three block radius. Adrian at the front desk was funny, attentive and just awesome overall.

Such a unique, fun, chic, great stay

Adrian, one of the managers is hilarious, helpful, and just the cool gem to tell you about the nice spots in the neighborhood. Legado Mitico is a wonderful concept - welcoming enough and not TOO cool for an older crowd, yet hip, fun, and sleek enough for the younger travelling partier. Great service, clean spaces with unique trinkets, soft bedding, nice balcony overlooking the street outside and on the perfect buzzy street corner. Loved the stay - every detail is perfect and thought-out.

Chic hotel with wonderful service
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

This place is chic and immaculate. The location could not be better, in the very center of Palermo Soho. There is a great burger joint a block away, a decent asado at a place called Minga, and a tasty ice cream spot around the corner. What more could you ask for? The room was gorgeous and held one of the most comfortable beds I’ve ever slept in. The best part about this place is the staff, especially Adrian. He went above and beyond to provide extraordinary customer service of the variety that one does not soon forget. My highest recommendation and I hope to return soon!
