Buenos Aires

Art Hotel

1268 Azcuenaga,
Buenos Aires,

Argentina,

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 decorated with paintings, photos, and drawings by Argentine artists.

The Locale: The posh, tree-lined district of Recoleta is home to Buenos Aires’s National Museum of Fine Arts; the architecturally spectacular Recoleta Cemetery (burial place of Eva Perón); and many of the city’s five-star (and five-dollar-sign) lodgings. Avenida Santa Fe, one of the city’s toniest shopping strips, is just a five-minute stroll from the hotel.
