Hotel Babel

Balcarce 946, Buenos Aires, Buenos Aires, 1064, Argentina

A 15-minute walk from the Casa Rosada, this 200-year-old former home of late Argentine president Juan Manuel de Rosas sits on one of the city's most historic streets in the heart of San Telmo. A beautifully lit lobby decorated in dark wood and leather furnishings greets you with a library to your right and a well-stocked bar to the left. The rooms are spacious and modern, with big beds and colorful bathrooms decorated with venecita tiles.

PROS

  • beautiful and welcoming lobby
  • guests are greeted with a complimentary glass of Argentine wine upon arrival
  • local artists display their works throughout the hotel and hold monthly openings

CONS

  • it's an old house: rooms are close together and the open-air patio can mean noise—and sometimes rainwater—outside your door
