In the heart of San Telmo, the Gurda will give you a glimpse of what life was like at the turn of the 19th century. Seven rooms line the long, open-air hallway with exposed brick, green plants, and bamboo sticks. Each room is named after something or someone decidedly Argentine—Borges, Malbec, Patagonia—and filled complete with decorations to match. (In the Borges room you find copies of his books and a colorful portrait.) The rooms are rustic and basic, but extremely charming.
