Sarmiento 1775, Buenos Aires, Capital Federal, Argentina
Hotel star rating:
This, the former home of author Leopoldo Lugones, is probably the best pick for super-stylish lodging right in downtown Buenos Aires. Along with 14 guest rooms outfitted with hardwood floors, skyscraper ceilings, and accents such as gilded mirrors and sparkling chandeliers, Rooney's Boutique Hotel features a bar/lounge, a coffee shop/café, and a concierge desk. A total renovation of this property was completed in March 2008, and it shows in the impeccably preserved antique property. A complimentary cooked-to-order breakfast is served daily. Wedding services, tour/ticket assistance, and translation services are available. Other property amenities at this Beaux Arts property include multilingual staff and laundry facilities.
