Miravida Soho in Buenos Aires

Hi,

We have started planning our trip to Argentina for late March. We are in our late 20's early 30's and are traveling with another couple. We are planning on going to Buenos Aires for 5 nights, and then to Mendoza to stay at Cavas Wine Lodge for 4 nights, and then back to BA for a night.

Has anyone stayed at Miravida Soho? If so, we are curious what you thought of the room you stayed in. We are pretty settled on staying there, but can't decide between the suite and courtyard loft room.

We are in the early stages of planning, but we would appreciate any advice.

Thank you!

Amy

Have u looked on Trip Advisor? We just changed our hotel reservation to Miravida Soho for our trip in Nov. We have to switch rooms and will be in both the suite and then the loft. I did find that James, the owner, gave us lots of goodinformation and answered all my questions via email. He also emailed pictures...more of the loft than of the suite.

DrDawggy, the universally acknowledged TOP Internet authority on BA and Argentina, commented favorably on the Miravida Soho in his recent trip report titled "My 25th Trip to BA: Recommendations".

While his post does not comment on each room in particular, he may be able to answer your question.

So, I suggest you wait for his highly qualified opinion.

Have a great time in our country.

I prefer the rooms on the front. The view is of a tree-lined cobblestone street rather than the backs of other buildings. Noise should not be a problem. The hotel is not located on an extremely busy street....but all the rooms are nice...and this reflects my tastes and preferences...part of the fun of staying in this type of hotel is choosing a room that matches YOUR preferences! Whichever room you choose...you will most likely be pleased....the area and the hotel are lovely....

OK, everybody, now!

Happy birthday, dear drdawggy, happy birthday to you!

Our best wishes for many years as the universally acknowledged TOP Internet authority on BA and Argentina!!!!

A small piece of advice from a local: buy your "dulce de leche" in Argentina. My favorite brand is San Ignacio "light".

LOL!!!!

Happy Bday, DrD! I agree with AV about where to buy dulce de leche. Saw some in DC in an "Argentine" Ice cream store--they want $14USD! So they sell it "light"--that would be worth a try.

My birthday meal consisted of

Empanadas de carne y papas, using a recipe by chef Francis Mallman that we found online.

Terrazas Reserva malbec.

Enseladas mixta.

Flan with dulce de leche (Nestles, which we found at Walmart)

All things considered, it was quite tasty...although I concur with Alberto...from now on I am bringing my dulce de leche home with me from Argentina.

Hi Amy I am not familiar with Miravida but I am familiar with Cavas Wine Lodge and let me tell you that this is a wonderful place. It is also fascinating the way they help you to do out door activities, and everything else for that matter, I also loved the violin concert...a wonderful experience. Great choice.
