From backpackers to hip thirtysomethings, from wealthy businessmen and their families to elderly adventure hunters, they are all heading to Buenos Aires, lured by a devalued peso, a cosmopolitan attitude and rich cultural heritage.

But the huge increase in tourism since 2001 took many by surprise, resulting in a lack of beds in the city, or at least nice ones with fluffy pillows and a view. Fortunately, the number of hotels is beginning to meet demand, especially in the small boutique sector.

There are hotels for wannabe oenologists (Miravida Soho), tango aficionados (Abasto Plaza and Mansión Dandi Royal) design geeks (Tailor Made Hotel and Home Hotel), stylish gay hotels (Axel) and luxury lovers (Faena Hotel + Universe, and the Alvear Palace Hotel).

Local design creativity, combined with international investment and the Argentinian genius for hospitality, come together successfully in the boutique hotels that we have listed, which by their nature tend to be small and book up quickly. Like many of Buenos Aires's great hotels they are often refurbished old houses, the best of them retaining some of their previous grandeur.

Where to stay

Palermo and San Telmo are the best places to snuggle into a cosy retreat. Downtown and the exclusive Recoleta areas are dominated by larger hotels popular for their proximity to the business centre. It is also the best place for budget hotels.

South of the city, in the run-down areas of Constitución and Barracas are to be found budget, or actually, dirt cheap lodgings that are mostly aimed at poor immigrant workers, known as Hoteles Familiares. Further afield and across Argentina, New Age Hotels ( has an impressive range of unique boutique hotels and estancias.

Nice video Meghan. I liked that you explained how daerngous situations are present in any country. I explain that to people all the time when they are like what, you lived where? I remember one time when I was living in Bogota, I was talking to someone in the city who told me that it was daerngous to live in Bogota haha (that person was a very rich old guy from a gated community in one of the wealthiest parts of the city, so again you have to always evaluate your sources of information). For people out there who are interested in studying abroad, don't let other people's opinions, which are often based off a very limited number of sources anyway, stop you from what most likely will be an eye-opening, enriching experience. Certainly, use common sense abroad. And before you go, sure, do your research and seek advice from people who have already lived abroad, but there are many wonderful experiences to have out there and if you are reading this post I hope you are researching around and making plans for travel and study soon! Suerte!
