A million miles from banal vanity, the Vain Hotel stands out for its precise balance between atmosphere, location and price.
This new, small boutique hotel in upcoming Palermo Soho combines the warmth of 1920’s conventillo architecture (home to Italian families and tango compadritos at the beginning of the century) with modern hip design.
Located a few blocks from the meeting point of Santa Fe Avenue and Thames St, Vain Hotel has only 15 rooms, a charming living room to flop in with your favorite travel novel and a seductive wooden deck to honour Palermo’s sunset with a cold beer.
All rooms continue with the white minimalist décor of the lobby, but each one has a particular design touch. Some offer a hedonistic Jacuzzi experience, where you can watch the stars through the glass ceiling while you take your bath, while others have direct access to the hotel’s inner patio.
Although Thames Street might be a little bit noisy, this part of Palermo Soho still conserves the original spirit and identity of the neighborhood.
Vain Hotel provides a great escape for narcissistic souls who wish to be within reach of Soho´s fashionable vibe.
