Tailor Made Hotel
On a Sunday afternoon, you’ll have a hard time finding a district more peaceful than Las Cañitas, in the north end of the city near the polo grounds. Saturday night, it’s a different story, as pedigreed Porteños descend on its restaurants and bars en masse. One street (and a world) away from the hullabaloo sits six-month-old Tailor Made. Though its five rooms are decidedly spare—crisp, white linens and bare walls are set off by dark wool throws—they are brimming with high-tech amenities. Each room comes with a flat-screen TV that doubles as a computer, thanks to a mini Mac hard drive, and a phone that operates using VoiP, which means most calls are free. (If you want a loaner cell phone, just ask the front desk.) Add to that complimentary laundry service and breakfast next door at the restaurant Novecento, and you have a property that, for all its design austerity, is full of personality. Our favorite perk?The hotel’s pair of hip retro bikes—perfect for pedaling through the local parks on a quiet Sunday afternoon.
