Hotels in Argentina

In this diverse country, you’ll find luxurious hotels, rustic estancias (ranch lodges), global brand name hotels and all manner of B&Bs and hostels. Keep in mind that rates at Argentina hotels tend to be highest during the locals' peak vacation months: January, February and July. The Four Seasons Buenos Aires is an upscale Argentina hotel in the Recoleta section of Buenos Aires that has two distinct sections: a 12-story modern tower and a Belle Epoque style mansion with marble columns restored frescoes, gold leaf, and stained glass. Even if you don’t stay here, check out the sumptuous Sunday brunch.

Llao Llao Resort, a vast 1940 Patagonian lodge, is a historic monument, and the ultimate place to stay in Nahuel Huapi National Park. It’s set on a hilltop with gorgeous views of Lake Nahuel Huapi and smaller Lake Moreno, it’s great for hikers in the summer months and skiers in winter. The dining includes both French classics and Patagonian comfort food. You won’t be copping out by going for Park Hyatt Mendoza, the familiar brand-name hotel in the wine country city of Mendoza. The restored Spanish neoclassical hotel, with a colonial-era courtyard, sits conveniently on downtown's Plaza Independencia, and has both a great wine lounge, spa and views of the Andes.

The hotel draws on the Belle Époque theme of tango's heyday, with Art Nouveau furniture and antique Victrolas. At the gift shop, buy a pair of Madreselva's sexy tango shoes, then join the hotel's free nightly dance class.

First opened in 1970, El Casco Art Hotel, seven miles from Patagonia’s famed mountain resort Bariloche, had a reputation for restrained elegance throughout the seventies.

The easy pace at El Rocío, a guesthouse and working ranch, makes it seem worlds away from the cosmopolitan and frenetic city, even though it is just 60 miles outside of Buenos Aires.

Cavas Wine Lodge's contemporary casitas are a striking contrast to their surroundings: the property is set in the midst of a working vineyard accessible only by a dirt road. Walls are rounded like mushrooms, and provocative art fills the public spaces.

The Hotel: Occupying a stately, renovated, century-old townhouse, the Art Hotel lives up to its name: the grand, high-ceilinged ground floor (which has a cozy library lounge and breakfast area) does double duty as a gallery, and each of the 36 clean-lined, wood-floored rooms is d

After tiring of their marketing jobs at Coca-Cola, Estela Títere and Silvina Tarrio bought this stately 1820s mansion—located in the historic neighborhood adjacent to San Telmo—from the descendants of the Italian Podestá family, who built and still lived in it.

A 2009 renovation of Buenos Aires’ Algodon Mansion, in the city’s Recoleta neighborhood, upped the ante at the six-story Belle Époque gem. The New York-based owners of Algodon (also the forces behind the Mendoza-based Algodon Wine Estates) spared no expense.

This handsome provincial capital, known for its meat empanadas and some of the world’s best-preserved mummies, has lately been burnishing its claim as Argentina’s third city for tourism, after Buenos Aires and Mendoza.

The hotel consists of two stories of dark wood and stucco, built around a courtyard and filled with hundred-year-old furniture.
