Montevideo 1647, Buenos Aires, Argentina
Hotel star rating:
High-end, stylish lodging awaits at the brand-new Algodon Mansion in pretty Recoleta, one of Buenos Aires' more exclusive neighborhoods. Situated within a stone's throw of some of BA's top restaurants, bars, art galleries, shops, and plazas, this new boutique hotel is an ideal pick for luxury travelers with an itch for a more intimate feel, with details attended to right down to the fully-loaded iPod listening station in your suite. Choose from the most opulent suite, the Algodon Royal, or take a more low-key approach with the Ambassadeur, Imperiale, or Recoleta suites. Or, should the circumstances call for it, rent the whole darn mansion, complete with the 10 suites and the standard diligent hotel services, along with the spa and rooftop pool. Some of those fine Recoleta eateries may have to wait – Algodon Mansion features its own in-house wine and cigar lounge, Cognac Bar, and a fittingly French restaurant, Chez Nous.
