Now, this one absolutely looks like it belongs in a magazine. If you're a bit of an aesthetics-driven person, this is the perfect spot for you. With five bedrooms and four bathrooms, it's great if you're traveling with a group of your best mates. While it doesn't come cheap, you're also in the best location, near tons of restaurants and bars. So it's worth it, right? And even if you don't feel like eating out all the time, there's a supermarket just 100m away from the property as well as a fully equipped kitchen and a grill! Time to brush off those cooking skills.

This spot is probably quite different to the others on the list and is not as upmarket, but it has all the character you could dream of. Built on a huge park surrounded by nature, this is perfect for anyone who wants some peace and quiet after exploring the city sites. It's quite isolated, away from any neighbors, which also makes it the perfect spot for those wanting a couples getaway. As for the space inside, there are three bathrooms (which means no fighting over who takes their shower first), a living room with a fireplace, and a kitchen full of everything you could ever need.

After an Airbnb for an impromptu, cozy couples getaway? Well, here lies proof that good things come in small packages. Based in the luxurious neighborhood of Recoleta, take a romantic stroll amongst the beautifully botanic streets and when you're done, head back to your balcony with a glass of red. Oh and get acquainted with the hot tub bath, too.

A very contemporary pad with a luxury feel to it, it prides itself as 'one of the most architecturally unique spaces in the city'. You'll find two bedrooms, a dipping pool, and some super trendy exposed brickwork. It's also on a quiet, serene street in San Telmo, perfect for couples who want to get away from the hustle and bustle.

Let's be real: this restored townhouse is muy hermoso. With high ceilings, ornate lighting, and plush soft furnishings, it's a slice of Argentinian luxury, darling. Want some more good news? Since there’s enough space for six people to stay, the bill can be split pretty nicely. Group trip, anyone?

With all the bourgeois grandeur of a Parisian palace (chandeliers, plush furnishings, and stained glass galore) this Airbnb doesn’t disappoint. When you can finally peel yourself away from this stylish pad, take a stroll along the winding lanes of Palermo and wander into the verdant botanical gardens where the view is as sweet as the smell. Fancy petting something furry? The garden is home to domestic cats, too.

This bright and breezy apartment is situated in downtown Buenos Aires, just a few blocks away from the affluent Recoleta. With cozy furniture, clever storage that maximizes space, and a large private balcony for dining alfresco, this space showcases budget Airbnbs at its best.

Because who doesn’t fantasize about waking up to tranquil views and fresh sea air? Aptly named "Paraíso Flotante" (floating paradise), this dreamy home even has a hot tub, so you can warm up on nippier days and while away your time watching the sunset glisten on the river. Heaven.

You might not be able to sketch anything other than a stick man, but it's still pretty tough not to catch some kind of creativity at this bohemian apartment. There's quirky furniture and vibrant prints, and thanks to the private balcony, the stylish interior is flooded with sunshine all day long. When you fancy stepping outside, you’ll soon encounter San Telmo's premier attractions, from the Sunday Feria to Argentina’s National History Museum - pretty fitting really, seeing as San Telmo is the oldest barrio in the city.

Set within a French-style building, this peaceful home is polished, simple, and comfortable. With general amenities and a fantastic location in the heart of Buenos Aires, you’ll be off exploring the city in no time. Plus, when you return from your daily excursions, the building has a porter and night security - so you can drop any worries you had about staying somewhere new.

There’s a simple reason that penthouses are lusted after: the view. But while the metropolitan skyline is breathtaking, the interior of this place is incredibly lavish too. With checkered flooring, wooden furniture, and a healthy scattering of sophisticated accessories, it’s a far cry from the budget holiday B&Bs of yore.
