Fodor's Expert Review Serena Hotel

Libertad 1617, Buenos Aires, Buenos Aires, 1016, Argentina

The name of this design hotel conjures up a feeling of serenity, and the fountains in the lobby, the outdoor patio ringed with greenery, and the sizable indoor swimming pool take it to the next level. The calming aesthetic extends to the rooms with soothing cream-colored walls, cushy carpets, and furniture created with soft leather and dark wood. The armoires, headboards, and desks are by top Argentine designer Eugenio Aguirre, who created them especially for the hotel. The adults-only property is situated in the swankiest part of Recoleta—which the polite, attentive staff is happy to help you navigate—and offers a smaller, quieter base than its neighbors like the Palacio Duhau Park Hyatt.
