Hotels in Buenos Aires

Comfort and luxury are absolute priorities at Buenos Aires hotels. The city’s old world elegance and modern spirit come together in top-rated accommodations across town. Some of the best hotels in Buenos Aires offer fine dining, spa services and high-tech amenities to make your stay as flawless as possible. At Faena Hotel, guests can stay in sprawling suites accented with romantic décor, have afternoon tea at the elegantly-outfitted Library Lounge or enjoy an alfresco dinner at El Mercado restaurant, with a personal experience manager overseeing their entire stay.

In the heart of the beautiful Recoleta neighborhood, Alvear Palace Hotel features a spa and fitness area, a business center, two upscale restaurants and a Cigar Bar, where even non-smokers can treat themselves to a relaxing afternoon with high-quality chocolates and liqueurs. Also in Recoleta, Palacio Duhau-Park Hyatt is a relaxing oasis in the city, with lush gardens and spacious, bright rooms. The hotel even houses an art gallery named Paseo de las Artes, showcasing sculptures and paintings by Argentinian and Latin American artists.

Space. You need it; this terrific aparthotel has it. A Premium apartment gives you and yours 84 square meters in which to spread out and, when it comes to it, as it always does, fall out.

This family-friendly aparthotel places you on the west side of San Telmo, just a 10-minute stroll from Plaza Dorrego. Choose from 15 spacious condo units, each equipped with everything you need to be self-sufficient.

Poised between the parks and gardens of Palermo and the historical sites of downtown Buenos Aires, upscale Recoleta is a great neighborhood for a family stay. At this no-frills Howard Johnson, up to two children under 12 stay free with their parents, buffet breakfast thrown in.

Any hotel that includes dulce de leche-filled alfajores and a bottle of Malbec in its welcome basket has clearly given some thought to intergenerational harmony and how to foster it.

Pulling out all the design stops with its rainbow facade and sleek interiors, this popular boutique is nonetheless a solid choice for families who want to stay in fashionable Palermo Viejo.

If you’ve stayed at a Four Seasons, you’ll know what to expect: peerless staff, including a bend-over-backwards concierge service, luxuriously equipped guestrooms, and top-notch shared amenities.

Few hotels anywhere have generated as much hype and debate over the past decade as this one.

Lodging emperors (Akihito), screen sirens (Sophia Loren), presidents (Nelson Mandela) and dodgy Swedish pop-rock duos (Roxette) since 1932, the Alvear is comfortably the city’s most famous hotel.

It’s the little things that count: The iPod-synced hydrotherapy massage tub; the temperature-controlled wine rack behind the damask sofa; the rooftop cognac and cigar bar. Housed in a handsome Recoleta mansion from 1912, this luxe boutique delivers a high-end experience with nonchalant aplomb.

If money is no object, the choice between the old mansion and the new tower is the proverbial no-brainer.

To create a theme hotel that isn’t lame is an achievement. To create one this special is a miracle. Each of the 11 guestrooms pays decorative homage to a famous Argentine, from Eva Perón to Che Guevara to Carlos Gardel.

A former convent overlooking one of Palermo Viejo’s sweetest street corners, Nuss is unpretentious, perfectly placed, and just plain good. Twenty-two guestrooms spread over three floors blend wood and fabrics to cozy effect, without stinting on the gadgetry du jour.

Recoleta’s best boutique hotel is a thing of rare beauty.

It tweets, it blogs, it posts, it pins, and it even updates its Google + account. In countless ways, the Fierro is achingly current. You would, therefore, expect it to fall flat on its face when it comes to doing the basic stuff right.

Owners Tom Rixton and Patricia O’Shea blazed a trail for others to follow when they opened Home a decade ago, but it’s hard to argue anyone has overtaken them.
