Algodon MansionBuenos Aires, Argentina
This hotel truly captures the feeling of ‘Belle Epoque’ Buenos Aires and is perfectly located in the elegant neighbourhood of Recoleta. The ten spacious suites are very tastefully decorated, combining modernity with the traditional. They blend sympathetically with the architecture of this 19th century mansion. The rooms boast spacious marble and limestone bathrooms and there are several nice touches, including a private collection Algadon wine tasting set. The larger suites have larger living areas, fireplaces and wet-bars.
The hotel has an excellent spa including steam, sauna and massage rooms, and a small rooftop pool with bar, but guests should be aware it does not have its own exercise facilities, although there is a reciprocal arrangement with a gym around the corner. The restaurant here serves up Argentinian cuisine with a twist and sources ingredients and wines from its sister property, Algodon Wine Estates, in Mendoza’s wine country. There is a library/lounge area which also plays host to live music acts.
This is one of our favourite luxury boutique hotels in Buenos Aires. The hotel’s staff are exceptionally attentive and knowledgeable, proffering excellent advice on making the most out of the city.
