Best hotels Buenos Aires

Situated along the shores of the Rio de la Plata, Buenos Aires is a cultural marvel.  Mirroring European cities like Madrid and Paris, this South American city is a blend of old world Europe and Latin flavor.  Popular for the captivating tango, delectable food and full-bodied wines, Buenos Aires is an exciting travel destination.

The arts are a very integral part of Buenos Aires and if you share that love you will have an abundance of things to keep you busy during your visit. Teatro Colon, one of the world's premier opera houses calls this sultry city home.  Although tickets are difficult to come by, visitors can take a guided tour and get at glimpse of this magnificent and famous musical hall.  After a tour of the opera house, visit Galle Museo Caminito.  Translated to mean "street museum", this bazaar like setting is overflowing with local artists and vendors selling their goods to excited tourists.  Although it can be a bit "gaudy", the energy of the people and brightly colored buildings make this a must see destination.   Buenos Aires is the home to 700 art galleries, 100 cinemas and 60 theatres, these two locations are just a few places that will leave you feeling cultured during your stay. 

Because Buenos Aires is known for its fabulous food and wine, deciding where to dine can be a bit overwhelming.  This contemporary town has a vast selection of food from different cultures, but still steeped in the Argentinian culture.  There are three areas that capture the modern food movement in Buenos Aires:  Palermo Soho, Palermo Hollywood and Las Canitas.  Hit any one of these neighborhoods and find numerous choices for the ultimate in fine dining.  If you want something a bit more low key but still mouth watering, visit some of the pizzerias or cafes throughout the city.  Wherever you chose to eat, just don't forget to visit the helanderias (ice cream shops) for a decadent dessert. 

Buenos Aires is defined by the tango, so going dancing and experiencing the heart pounding night-life is a must during your stay.  The people of Buenos Aires love to party and good music is just about the only thing necessary.   However, one thing to remember is that the "real" party doesn't start until the wee hours of the morning.  It will be easy to find a place to dance the night away, just make sure you don't get there too early and that you are dressed to impress. 

After a long night (or early morning) of dancing, rest and relaxation will be a top priority.  Our collection of the best hotels in Buenos Aires includes amazing properties with some impressive perks.  Alvear Palace Hotel offers elegance and modern conveniences.  Rest in one of the 197 rooms and then soothe your sore muscles with a massage in the on-site spa.  Faena Hotel + Universe gives travelers a historical haven.  This hotel is located in a notable grain building along the waterfront.  Where old meets new, this stylish hotel is oozing with charm.  If you want to be close to business and shopping, stay at the Four Seasons Buenos Aires.  This chic hotel offers modern comforts combined with 20th-century French style.  Select one of these fine hotels or check out our other options and you will find the best place to stay in this sensational city.
