New Hotels for Holing Up in Style in BA

The boutique hotel boom in Buenos Aires means that there is a plethora of stylish digs in town to choose from when planning your trip to Argentina. The tough part? Knowing which of the hundreds of hotels is your best fit. Take a look at NileGuide’s recommendations of the best newest boutique lodging in BA.

If location is your premier factor in choosing a hotel, we recommend the Palermitano. Aside from being within easy walking distance of all of sprawling Palermo’s fabulous bars, restaurants, art galleries, and shops, and a stone’s throw from the subway, this new spot is slick and minimalist, with great service and a rooftop pool to boot.

The brand-spanking-new Algodón Mansión in Recoleta takes low-key luxury to the next level with such features as a loaded iPod and listening dock, ready upon arrival. The plush suites will make you want to stay in the hotel all day – and you could, easily, since an in-house French restaurant and cigar bar are right downstairs.

It’s French, it’s cute, it’s feng shui. Rendez-Vous Hotel has just 11 rooms, meaning that you have to share the rooftop solarium and ground-level cafe with just a few other guests. Request a junior suite for some extra space and ask the friendly staff to book an in-house wine or chocolate tasting.

The charming, beautiful Hotel Boutique Racó de Buenos Aires is just far enough off the standard tourist track to appeal to more alternative travelers that, while looking for a slightly different experience, don’t want to sacrifice quality, service, and comfort. One extra perk to staying out in Almagro? Your cost-to-quality can’t be beat.
