Our favourite places to visit in the Argentine capital, from a luxurious hotel designed by Philippe Starck in Puerto Madero, a house of a film icon in Palermo, to a handful of Belle Epoque palaces in elegant Recoleta.
1.Fierro Hotel Buenos Aires ⭐⭐⭐
With its elegant black, graphite and red décor and modern furniture that is simple but elegant, Fierro is the kind of hotel where you feel instantly comfortable.on the ground floor, beyond the restaurant, there is a garden with lush trees and small shrubs.tables where breakfast is served on sunny mornings.indulge yourself in a suite with a balcony, which overlooks the back garden and is quieter than those overlooking the street.No matter what room you end up in, the big plush bed and opaque curtains will give you a good night’s sleep. The bathrooms are small, but at least the water pressure is good and strong.
2.Four Seasons Hotel Buenos Aires ⭐ ⭐ ⭐
A Belle Epoque mansion and a 12-story tower make up this hotel.Inside, the décor combines traditional and contemporary aesthetics: think of mahogany and leather furniture, and the décor and amenities that illuminate Argentina’s passions for horses, tango and wine.the gardens are stunning and there’s even a Roman-style heated pool.in the tower, the rooms are lively and colorful, with lots of orange cushions and printed chairs.The aesthetics lean towards French opulence in the Mansion, complete with gilt mirrors, glass chandeliers and Toile de Jouy wallpaper.
3.Esplendor by Wyndham Buenos Aires ⭐⭐⭐
Located in a neoclassical building near the Galerías Pacífico, Esplendor’s white walls, floating staircase and massive portraits of Argentine icons such as Che Guevara, Eva Perón gives the hotel an art gallery atmosphere.Because it is close to Florida Street, pedestrian and commercial, as well as to the office towers, the hotel attracts a wide variety of executives in the city on business, as well as couples from Brazil and other Latin American countries in the city on a shopping spree.The rooms are decorated in pastel colors and have a mix of contemporary and mid-century modern furniture, such as Bertoia steel mesh chairs.some rooms have a separate bath and shower.
4.Hotel Madero Buenos Aires ⭐⭐⭐
Located at the southern end of Puerto Madero, this hotel is all steel, glass and flooded with natural light.The lobby feels like a loft meeting place, thanks to a pool table that plays center stage, modern art hanging on the walls and a mix of modern and contemporary furniture in vibrant tones. While Faena nearby attracts a wealthy but artistic crowd, Madero is more suited to those traveling on business and perhaps families who want to be in a pedestrian-friendly neighborhood away from the hustle and bustle of the city.The rooms are spacious and continue the contemporary atmosphere established in the lobby, with dark wood floors and muted furniture in creamy colors, except perhaps a Tulip chair in a vibrant red tone.Opt for a corner room, most of which have kitchens and balconies with stunning views of the docks.
5.BE Jardin Escondido By Coppola ⭐⭐⭐⭐
The former home of Francis Ford Coppola while filming his movie Tetro, this hotel is like a little piece of heaven in bustling Palermo Soho.Inside are terracotta patios, lush gardens, an outdoor kitchen with a grill, and warm, light-filled rooms, each named after a different member of the Coppola family. There are only seven rooms here, and each is decorated with furniture and artwork presumably selected by Coppola himself during his travels in Argentina and other parts of Latin America, including Peruvian indigenous tapestries.The service is ultra-discreet: a manager, a concierge and a sommelier are available, but they are usually out of sight (cell phone is ready) unless needed.
6,248 Finisterra ⭐⭐⭐
Las Cañitas is full of trendy little restaurants and neighborhood bars.This 11 room hotel is located in a beautiful building painted in cream white. Inside it feels like your favourite aunt’s carefully decorated home. There is a lounge where antique looking sofas and chairs surround a fireplace. Beyond the small breakfast room there are glass doors leading to a peaceful garden covered with vines.A rooftop terrace has a small whirlpool bath and armchairs.
7.Alvear Palace Hotel ⭐⭐⭐⭐
When people say that Buenos Aires is the Paris of South America, surely the hotel that comes to mind is the Alvear.New to the hotel are the modern suites on the two upper floors, and on the rooftop, a generous spa, a swimming pool and a mouthwatering bar.views of the neighborhood.the breakfast buffet is perhaps the best in town.and the afternoon tea at L’Orangerie is everything you could imagine: a service with white gloves, delicate dishes and trays full of buns, and perfect little sandwiches, tempting cakes and tea served in golden cups.
8.Hotel Pulitzer Buenos Aires ⭐⭐⭐
Located in Microcentro and not far from Centro Cultural Borges and Centro Naval, this hotel plays with a nautical theme and keeps things simple with a blue, white and brown palette.Wooden floors, round mirrors on the walls and well-placed furniture in leather and suede give the room a cozy atmosphere.go out to the roof on the eighth floor for a dip in the pool or a nap in a comfortable lounge chair.it’s an affordable and comfortable option if you’re traveling alone and don’t need tons of space.
9.Palacio Duhau – Park Hyatt Buenos Aires ⭐⭐⭐
Before Buenos Aires surrendered to the automobile, and every Argentine man modeled his ego on that of Formula One legend Juan Manuel Fangio, Avenida Alvear was one of the city’s main thoroughfares, with horse-drawn carriages and trams running en route to the Palermo gardens and shady parks.Some of this Belle Epoque spirit still lives on and nowhere else but in the Duhau Palace, completed in 1934 as the city’s mansion of a landowning family.its grand neoclassical façade is right on the avenue, and the lobby is a majestic, serene space where light pours from the terrace onto the fluted marble columns, intricately carved wooden doors and low white leather sofas.The terraced gardens are worthy of a scene at The Great Gatsby, with rooms ranging from spacious and functional to sumptuous and palatial; the boudoir suite has butler service, a huge marble bathroom and, perhaps most impressive, two private terraces overlooking the avenue below.The Duhau restaurant and public spaces channel the historic glamour of the property, with local couples having lunch and outsiders drinking Arnaud’s milk cocktails.the surrounding Recoleta district is known for its old-world architecture, and this hotel, inspired by the Château du Marais near Paris, is the ultimate expression of Argentine Francophilia.Its only rival in this majestic strip is the Alvear Palace, but where it flaunts its ostentation, South America’s largest Hyatt hotel stands alone.
10.Faena Hotel Buenos Aires ⭐⭐⭐⭐
The neighbourhood is Puerto Madero, right on the seafront.From the outside, the red brick building that occupies Faena does nothing to hint at the exaggerated decoration of what’s inside. The place is designed by Philippe Starck. Need we say more? It’s dark and dramatic, with red velvet curtains, deep rugs, pink-tinted glass, red leather sofas and fire truck.A lot of red and black everywhere with a touch of the ridiculous. Fortunately, Starck showed a little restraint in designing the rooms. Instead of dark and moody, the rooms are a studio with restraint, Faena style. Faena is expensive, but if you want to be in Puerto Madero and are a fan of Starck’s design brand, this hotel is for you.
