Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Boutique Racó de Buenos Aires
Yapeyú 271, Buenos Aires, Buenos Aires, 1202, Argentina Fodor's Choice
Resembling the old-money mansions of San Telmo, this hotel's rooms open onto a central patio where many guests choose to take their breakfast. From the balcony ringing the patio, the San Carlos Basílica—where Pope Francis was baptized—is visible and the chiming bells audible. The colorful, quiet rooms incorporate elements of an original building dating from 1904, including exposed brick ceilings and stained glass. The working-class neighborhood of Almagro where the owner was born and raised is a taste of "real" Buenos Aires.
- A short distance from many attractions
- interesting neighborhood
- plenty of charm
- the downstairs common area feels somewhat hodgepodge
