Fodor's Expert Review Magnolia Hotel Boutique

Julián Alvarez 1746, Buenos Aires, Buenos Aires, 1414, Argentina Fodor's Choice

This boutique lodging feels like home—if home were a high-ceilinged, lavishly decorated Palermo town house dating from the 1890s. The owner is a well-traveled history professor who worked personal touches into the hotel's decor, including a large black-and-white photo of four girls reading a book, one of whom is the owner's grandmother. Red walls complement cowhide area rugs, deep leather couches, and dark wood furniture for a stylishly rustic aesthetic in the spacious downstairs living area, where guests can read, relax, and tinker on the piano beside the check-in desk. Rooms have ample natural light, embroidered sheets, and antique furniture. Don't miss the terrace with large, plush outdoor couches and a barbecue grill.


  • top-floor terrace is the perfect urban escape
  • lots of cozy common areas
  • homemade baked goods at breakfast


  • some rooms require walking outdoors
  • rooms could use a minibar
  • quite far from Palermo's Soho buzz
