Experience the Finest with Buenos Aires' 10 Best Luxury Hotels

Buenos Aires used to be one of the richest cities in the world. The South American capital was also a final destination for many waves of European immigrants. Today, visitors find Buenos Aires to be a fascinating European-inspired city that exudes passion and charm.  

Luxury hotels in Buenos Aires are second to none and typically reminiscent of Paris’s grace or a dose of international cosmopolitan cool. Whether home-grown or the result of a foreign mind, all carefully pride themselves on their posh surroundings, elegant details and “cut above the rest” service.

The venerable Alvear Palace Hotel has been a Buenos Aires stalwart of luxury, but it is no longer the only game in town when it comes to luxurious digs and treatment. Buenos Aires now has a number of great luxury hotels, like the refined Palacio Duhau and the wild and modern Faena Hotel + Universe.

While many luxurious hotels are situated in the neighborhood of Recoleta amongst trees and embassies, the neighborhood of Palermo has come into its own, with more and more luxurious accommodations choosing to settle there, such as the Fierro Hotel with its top-rated restaurant and Home Hotel with its polished retro vibe.
