Buenos Aires budget hotels and hostels
America del Sur Hostel
This fun (and large) San Telmo hostel will pad your itinerary and your social circle. Evening activities include pub crawls and tango lessons. Should your travels take you up north, America del Sur Hostel also has a sister hostel in Calafate.
HTL 9 de Julio
Who doesn’t love luxe lofts at wallet-friendly prices? This affordable hotel is well-located within walking distance from numerous sites and a delicious breakfast is served right to your room by friendly, multi-lingual staff. The rooms at HTL 9 de Julio are sizeable, and clean and there’s reliable Wi-Fi to boot.
An immensely popular hostel chain with locations in San Telmo and Palermo. At Art Factory Soho, there are stunning murals painted by local artists. All dorms have plugs and lights.
Hostel chain Selina landed in Buenos Aires in 2019 with this Palermo Soho hot spot a stone’s throw from the throbbing nightlife of Plaza Serrano (also known as Plaza Julio Cortázar). Expect Selina’s typical uber-hip decor with everything from reggaeton classes to yoga sessions and dining options under one roof.
Play Hostel Soho
Play and stay at Play Hostel in Palermo Soho which has music-themed dorms and private rooms. It’s located just six blocks from Plaza Serrano and you get your money’s worth with a buffet breakfast each morning.
You get your money’s worth at Circus Hostel owing to the chic sun deck with pool and gardens. The whitewashed walls create an airy, clean ambiance and the prime location in San Telmo will delight. Plaza Dorrego is just three blocks away from the famous San Telmo Sunday market.
Buenos Aires mid-range hotels
There’s a nautical theme throughout Hotel Pulitzer – after all, it’s close to the Naval Centre (and the Borges Cultural Centre too). The jewel in its crown is the 13th floor where you’ll find a rooftop pool with an inviting sun lounger (open seasonally). Hotel Pulitzer is also home to one of Buenos Aires’ most fabulous rooftop bars, Sky Bar.
NH Buenos Aires 9 de Julio
Outdoor pool, bar, fitness centre, abundant breakfast options, and faultless service all within walking distance from pretty much everything – what’s not to love about this NH hotel? Take a dip on the rooftop pool while Evita towers over from the Ministry of Health building.
Hotel Madero is a business and couple-friendly hotel in Puerto Madero. The rooms are flooded with natural light from the floor-to-ceiling windows. Don’t forget about the rooftop spa with panoramic city views.
A Hotel Buenos Aires
Part hotel, part gallery, purchasable paintings hang in each of the 34 rooms here. A Hotel is very well-priced in ritzy Recoleta and it’s conveniently located if you’d like to discover downtown Buenos Aires on foot as well as Palermo.
Esplendor by Wyndham
Enjoy the splendour of 4-star Esplendor by Wyndham which is a three-minute walk from Galerías Pacifico shopping mall in downtown Buenos Aires. There’s the added elegance of immensely high ceilings, avant-garde decor and (lovable) oddball triangular cushions garnishing the beds.
Exe Hotel Colón
Stay at Exe Hotel Colón to sleep a stone’s throw from the widest avenue in the world and for rooms literally overlooking the Obelisk. Fret not, however, there’s soundproofing.
Buenos Aires boutique hotels
Nuss Buenos Aires Soho
There are 22 spacious rooms in this 100-year-old year Spanish-style convent-turned boutique hotel. Nuss Buenos Aires Soho is set over four floors and the in-house chefs bake fresh bread each morning.
Mine Hotel is a great place to drink in the sights and sounds of Palermo Soho. Staff members are bilingual, rooms are colour-coordinated with spacious beds, the lobby and courtyard are warm and inviting, and you can enjoy a dip in the pool as well.
Hotel Legado Mítico
Regularly making it onto the list of Buenos Aires’ best hotels is Legado Mítico, an intimate boutique property in Palermo. Each room is themed and as such, is a dive into Argentina’s history. Legado Mítico is worthy of your leisure time even just for the garden area, but you’ll particularly be enthralled by the library and reading rooms, which are a bibliophile’s dream.
Buenos Aires luxury hotels
Naturally, Buenos Aires has a wine hotel and Algodon Mansion is it. This 5-star property in upscale Recoleta boasts a swimming pool and complimentary wines. The building is an opulently restored French-style mansion. You may recognise the name from Mendoza’s Algodon Wine and Estates Champion Club.
Expect world-class service and regal French decor at Alvear Palace in Recoleta. This glamorous 5-star hotel has extravagant chandeliers, 207 rooms and it has won far too many awards to count. Enjoy spectacular views at the Alvear Roof Bar or afternoon tea at L’Orangerie with service from white-gloved waiters.
A Leading Hotel of the World, this Phillipe Starck-designed powerhouse draws the fashionable crowd to Puerto Madero. Faena’s swimming pool is iconic with burgundy lounge chairs and a crown fountain in the water.
Palladio Hotel Buenos Aires
Palladio is an MGallery by Sofitel hotel in Recoleta. Fine dining enthusiasts should make the most of on-site Negresco Bistró and during downtime, escape to the heated rooftop pool or lounge at the spa. Palladio is located in leafy Plaza Rodriguez Peña.
Hilton Buenos Aires
You can expect the usual Hilton bells and whistles plus views of the city and the river in Puerto Madero. With three restaurants (El Faro, Alberto’s Lobby Bar and Croutons Grab and Go), you’ll never go hungry here.
BE Jardin Escondido
BE Jardin Escondido by Coppola has quite the back story. It was once the home of ‘The Godfather’ director Francis Ford Coppola and all seven rooms are named after a Coppola family member. ‘Francis’ is the best and largest room. There’s an outdoor kitchen with a lush garden and a parilla as well.
