It List - The Best New Hotels: Hub Porteno

City: Hub Porteño, Buenos Aires

The allure of this gem in the Recoleta area is its impressive ability to unlock the best Buenos Aires has to offer. Whether you’re a polo fanatic aspiring to meet a star player or an architecture buff eager for a city tour with a noted interior designer, anything is within reach, thanks to the black book of the Hub’s well-connected owner Gonzalo Robredo. We took a private lesson with one of the city’s premier dance teachers, and then paid an after-hours visit to a hidden milonga (tango hall) on the city’s fringes. The hotel itself has 11 light-filled suites, each of which pays homage to Argentina with Belle Époque furnishings and paintings from the celebrated art collection of the late Amalia Lacroze de Fortabat—Robredo is a family friend. hubporteno.com. $$$
