The “Paris of the Americas”, Buenos Aires is one of the most exciting and cosmopolitan capital cities in South America with world-class galleries, museums, restaurants and attractions.
Founded on the banks of the River Plate in 1536, the city is divided into separate suburbs each of which offers a distinctly unique flavour. From the iconic Pink Palace of downtown’s historic Plaza de Mayo to the leafy tree-lined suburb of elegant Recoleta, home of the famous cemetery and tomb of Buenos Aires’ most famous daughter Evita Peron, there is a neighbourhood to suit your every mood. For gritty, working class Buenos Aires, head to the once run-down port of La Boca now bursting with handicraft sellers, tango dancers and brightly coloured houses while for a classic slice of the city, make your way to the cobbled streets of San Telmo ringed with antique shops and cafés, famous for its weekly flea market. Finally, to escape the madness, take a taxi to the rejuvenated docks of Puerto Madero to spoil yourself in one of the elegant steakhouses or even venture to Palermo, home to the city’s most stylish boutiques, restaurants and galleries.
Whichever suburb you choose, no visit to Argentina is complete without experiencing the city’s favourite dance – Tango. There are venues throughout Buenos Aires which deliver a sumptuous meal and show such as the highly renowned Esquina Carlos Gardel, though for the real thing, head to a traditional “Milonga” dancing club.

Ignore the hotel’s marketing strapline “Transformational Experiences”, the Hub Porteño captures the vibrant energy of Buenos Aires and is a chic, art-deco hotel with antique-inspired contemporary furniture merging with vivid splashes of colour. The hotel dedicates itself to all things Buenos Aires and experts are on hand to share their local knowledge (and love) of regional history, art, music and culture.
The Algodon Mansion is among our favourite hotels in Buenos Aires, a boutique gem with excellent service that honours its traditional Argentine roots – whether it be wine-tasting or a private Tango class, all can be arranged from one moment to the next. It is on the expensive side but money well-spent in our eyes!
Loi Suites Recoleta$$$$
The Loi Suites Recoleta is an excellent mid-range option in Buenos Aires and represents great value for money. Its position within Recoleta couldn’t be better with key attractions, bars and some of the city’s finest restaurants all within easy reach.
