Buenos Aires Hotels

Buenos Aires has seen a boom in boutique accommodation in the last few years, and many of the addresses are found sprinkled across the trendy barrio of Palermo. The city's old-world grandeur and modern spirit are represented in its generous spread of high-end and design hotels that range from classic establishments like Alvear Palace to the more budget-conscious boutique Pop Hotel found in the up-and-coming Villa Crespo district. Due to the instability of the Argentine peso, most hotels are priced in US dollars.

The Buenos Aires hotels below have been grouped into three pricing categories:

Luxury (over US$300)

Moderate (US$100 to US$300)

Cheap (up to US$100)

These Buenos Aires hotel prices are the starting prices for a standard double room unless otherwise indicated.


Alvear Palace Hotel

This luxurious establishment has been a favourite with royals and diplomats since it opened in 1932. Conceived during the belle époque, the hotel is a symbol of that era, and some rooms contain reproductions of renowned pieces of French decorative art. The hotel is a short walk from the best restaurants, boutiques and museums of Recoleta.
