City Highlights

Gritty but glamorous, Buenos Aires mixes vibrant Latino spirit with faded European grandeur and is a fascinating city brimming with attractions: Prime, juicy steaks, big, bold wines and sensational ice-creams for starters; tango dancing, that sensual and highly entertaining strut, which can be watched in countless venues across town and heaps of bars, clubs and live music venues for late-night revellers. Like New York, this is a city that hates to sleep! Tucked amongst the concrete towers, you'll also find grand, crumbling palaces; in other areas, amazing street art. Not forgetting the occasional parade of football fans chanting in triumph. .

Culture & History

Top treasures include the extravagant tombs and mausoleums of Cementerio de la Recoleta and the beautiful, baroque-style, altars of Basilica de Nuestra Senora del Pilar. Outside the cemetery gates, you'll find a weekend market laden with handmade crafts. Meanwhile, galleries worth noting include Museo Nacional de Arte Decorativo, overflowing with exquisite pieces; Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes for fine Argentinian art and Centro Cultural La Recoleta, with its mini science museum. A modern icon of the city's landscape is a giant flower sculpture of shining steel, its petals opening at dawn and closing at dusk. All these and more on your hotel's doorstep!

Disabled Services:expand_more

The hotel offers two Premier Deluxe Suite rooms that have been adapted for disabled guests. Both rooms are located close to the lifts and have butler service included in the rate. The rooms feature fully adapted bathrooms with a roll-under wash basin, roll-in shower with seat and grab bars surrounding the toilet, wash basin and shower. Both rooms can also accommodate an extra bed incorporated in the living room upon request. Areas of the hotel are accessible by either lift, ramp or chair lift. There is a secondary spa access area, designed especially for disabled guests.
