City: Hub Porteño, Buenos Aires

44 of 63

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. $$$
