Hotel Babel, La Boca and San Telmo

At a Glance

    Pros

  • beautiful and welcoming lobby
  • only nine rooms, all lovely
  • 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

Hotel Babel Review

This 200-year-old former home of late Argentine president Juan Manuel de Rosas sits on one of the city's most historic streets, exactly nine blocks from the Casa Rosada, in the heart of San Telmo. A beautifully lit lobby decorated in dark wood and leather furnishings greets you with a library living room to your right and a well-stocked bar to the left. The 9 rooms are spacious and modern, with big beds and colorful bathrooms decorated with venecita tiles and stocked with locally produced creams and gels.
