Mine Hotel

Buenos Aires, Argentina

8Telegraph expert rating

A contemporary, cosy boutique hotel in a charmingly artsy barrio of Buenos Aires, with exceptional concierge staff, a courtyard curtained by lilac bougainvillea, heated outdoor pool and stupendous breakfasts. The lobby is cheerful and unpretentious, yet at the same time chic and Instagrammable – a winning combo. With a television, oversized sofa, well-stocked book snug and computer corner it encourages you to linger. The whole place is bright and welcoming while polished concrete floors and funky lighting keep it looking urban.Read expert review

Nuss Buenos Aires Soho

Buenos Aires, Argentina

8Telegraph expert rating

This 22-room boutique hotel housed in a former convent and perched on one of the most emblematic corners of Palermo has exemplary urban-oasis credentials: a large rooftop terrace is drenched with geraniums and sports a small pool. It is a prime spot to take in the legendary Buenos Aires sunsets. Bedrooms are set around a Spanish-style palm-filled atrium, meaning no long corridors, rather a more intimate home-from-home vibe. Although retaining the charm of the old building, Nuss is completely refurbished to feel modern and fresh. The lobby lounge is calm with pale woods and waxy palms ensuing a slightly Scandi sensibility.Read expert review

Hub Porteño

Buenos Aires, Argentina

8Telegraph expert rating

More like a lavish apartment owned by your richest Argentine friend. Hub Porteño is all about ultra-stylist décor, daring – and delicious – gastronomy and “curating” the perfect short break in Buenos Aires. It also has one of very few rooftop terraces in the area. The exterior is much like all the other very smart apartment blocks around this area, but inside is all gleaming marble, vintage-style light fixtures, beautiful hide rugs and high walls decorated with antiques, art pieces and valuable textiles. Colours are muted – mainly greys, cream and white – and the overall tone is, in keeping with the neighbourhood, conservative and slightly formal.Read expert review

Faena Hotel Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires, Argentina

8Telegraph expert rating

Think chipped antiques, clawfoot furnishings and white leather exploded onto a canvas that’s a fierce shade of red. But there is more to this hotel than its stomping interiors — not least its on-site tango theatre and rather regal swimming pool. It’s a clever mix of outlandish shimmer and folksy chintz here: the heads of white unicorns with ruby-jewelled eyes jutting out of white leather curtained walls in one room; grandfather clocks, Catholic iconography and peeling sepia photographs of gaucho ranches in another.Read expert review

Legado Mitico Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires, Argentina

8Telegraph expert rating

A small, beautifully decorated hotel in pretty Palermo Viejo that honours mythical figures from Argentina’s cultural history. It's tranquil inside, but only a block away from the hip hubbub where some of Buenos Aires’ smartest boutiques, restaurants and bars are located. The refurbished three-storey townhouse boasts décor midway between museum and private mansion. Artworks, Andean rugs, bookscases and period furniture decorate the landings. The colour scheme is neutral, and lighting muted. On the ground floor there’s a small, ivy-walled patio.Read expert review

Home

Buenos Aires, Argentina

8Telegraph expert rating

Home is delightfully quirky yet slick to boot. Palermo's first boutique hotel channels hipster-chic but is refreshingly unpretentious; interiors are mid-century sexy with a Scandi-minimalist vibe, colour injected via vintage flower-power wallpaper: somehow it works, really well. The sun-soaked lobby is calm and collected and the garden and plentiful windows give the lobby an abundance of light. Home packs an awful lot into its unassuming exterior, from the pretty little swimming pool in the fern-draped garden down to an extensive but small spa hidden in the city.Read expert review

The Clubhouse

Buenos Aires, Argentina

8Telegraph expert rating

A libertine lair hides behind an unmarked façade, with a walled garden, pool and cocktail bar at its beating heart. This urban members’ club has just four bedrooms, ensuring you feel like one of Buenos Aires' cool crew the second you step through the door. An industrial-style spiral staircase leads to terraces, nooks and the huge bedrooms, while downstairs maroon velvet sofas provide a cosy spot. Polished concrete floors and exposed beams add to the eclectic style while mural art, original Warhols and photos by lens magician Diego Ortiz Mugica adorn the walls.Read expert review

Miravida Soho Hotel & Wine Bar

Buenos Aires, Argentina

8Telegraph expert rating

Charming. That’s really all you need to say about Miravida – it’s not flashy, perhaps even a little worn in places, but it’s in keeping with the crackling tango music playing on the stereo and the back-in-time vibe. The hotel channels a Thirties style with deep red walls, ebony floors, crystal chandeliers and vine-dripped balconies. It’s snug and welcoming: part bohemian wine bar, part shabby-chic private casa, the magic being it doesn’t try too hard to fit any style.Read expert review

The Glu

Buenos Aires, Argentina

8Telegraph expert rating

A family-run, 11-room boutique hotel located in the hippest neighbourhood in the city. It's slick, stylish and modern – the décor won’t leave you reeling in descriptive euphoria but this converted townhouse is all about the service, location and big rooms. The lobby areas don’t suck you in but the beds do. Everything is in excellent repair, glossy and thoughtfully designed. Although there's no restaurant or spa, there is a pretty patio for drinks and the concierge can give you real insider knowledge of the city with great recommendations for nights out, restaurants and walks.Read expert review
