BoBo Hotel takes its name from "Bourgeois Bohemian." The hotel itself is quite beautiful but it felt extremely quiet and organized--not very true to its bohemian name. The furniture is huge and has a spot of color, and the restaurant is very calm and provides room service until about 11 pm. The receptionist was very kind, though she was also a bit quiet as well.. If you're into luxury and prefer a more silent atmosphere, then perhaps this is a good place for you.

Maybe I just caught him on a bad day, but I received a pretty chilly reception from the desk attendant working at Bobo Hotel. He offered me a glass from a desk-side jug of lemon-infused water, but that’s where the niceties ended. The hotel is unquestionably beautiful and is decorated in its namesake’s “Bourgeois Bohemian” style (a copy of the book “Bobos in Paradise: The New Upper Class and How They Got There,” by David Brooks, rests on a table). The atmosphere, however, felt a tad bit stale. Aside from the sound of a couple of businessmen speaking to each other in low tones in the living room, the lobby was uncomfortably quiet. A definite draw is the acclaimed restaurant, open from Tuesday to Saturday. Perhaps this hotel is best suited for travelling businessmen. Although there is no pool or spa, individual spa treatments can be requested and provided within customers’ rooms.

This hotel was nice enough, but very structured, square, ordered and controlled. In fact, when I was there, I learned that they don’t accept bookings from anyone with children under the age of 13 to ensure there’s no noise or disruption. This might be what some people enjoy, but I felt that it lacked life and energy. It was lovely and clean and the jacuzzi bath in the room was a real added extra. There was no skimping on luxury in any way. The restaurant was neat, organised and the bar was well stocked. There was very little to complain about, but it just wasn’t my thing. I felt like I had to be quiet and respectful when wandering around. It didn’t help much that the furniture was large and square and imposing.

BoBo (for Bohemian Boutique) is a gorgeous, luxurious boutique hotel in the best part of Palermo- quiet, just a few minutes from restaurants, shops, bars, etc. The restaurant seems to function on its own, as well as part of the hotel, and is pretty large and fancy. The hotel has an aged elegance to it, but with modern touches. The beds are huge and fluffy and amazing, and the bathrooms are luxuriously large and include large bathtubs. In addition, the rooms are large and have lovely high ceilings. There is a lovely, covered outdoor courtyard and patio, which smokers will appreciate, and a big comfy, somewhat quirky lobby. The spa is under construction, and the staff and helpful and nice, very professional. The bohemian accents turn this into a unique, attractive hotel with personality.

Boutique hotel that is modern but still has a quirky argentine feel.
Three different category rooms, but even the most basic is the very spacious, light and plenty big for your needs. Great balcony/terraces available in the suite rooms, where are much bigger than normal balconies and very private. The bathroom was generously sized but my room had no bath, which is disappointing for such a luxurious place.
Sauna and spa were in repair when I was here, which was a shame, but staff did apologise and here they were friendly and professional. The restaurant is renown locally for its food and the place is lovely and open. The food is really top-notch, serving a mix of Mediterranean and argentine food. This is also where breakfast is served off the the a la carte breakfast menu.
Very sleek design that isn’t too everyone’s tastes: I found it a little impersonal but it’s still gorgeous and well-designed. Great location too in Palermo Soho and it’s a really safe area.
