Fodor's Expert Review Mio Buenos Aires
Avenida Pres. Manuel Quintana 465, Buenos Aires, Buenos Aires, 1129, Argentina
The Catena family owns this luxurious boutique hotel, so all the rooms come stocked with wines straight from their own Mendoza vineyards. You'll find rustic elements everywhere, starting with the towering entrance fashioned from wood from French oak barrels. Also made by hand are the wooden bathtubs, all of which are slightly different. All the rooms have balconies overlooking the street or the courtyard where large, metal butterflies by an Argentine artist are lit up at night. Some suites include in-room saunas, while others have private rooftop whirlpool tubs. Amenities include a spa, a pool, and a small exercise area.
- on one of the most picturesque streets in Recoleta
