Hotel Boutique Racó

Exterior

At a Glance

    Pros

  • the working-class neighborhood of Almagro where the owner was born and raised is a taste of "real" Buenos Aires and a short distance from many main attractions

    Cons

  • the downstairs common area feels somewhat hodgepodge and functions as a gallery, breakfast space, bar, and wine-tasting room

Hotel Boutique Racó Review

Occupying a former home identical in style to the old-money mansions of San Telmo, this hotel's rooms open to the central patio, where many guests, often couples, choose to take their breakfast. From the second-floor of the lofted balcony ringing the patio, the San Carlos Basílica is visible and the chiming bells audible. Rooms are sound-absorbent, colorful, and incorporate elements of the older version of the building from 1904, such as exposed brick ceilings and stained glass.
