Last week I had the chance to spend a night at the Legado Mitico Buenos Aires, a charming emblematic boutique hotel in the neighborhood of Palermo SOHO.

I have been to San Antonio de Areco multiple times in previous visits to Buenos Aires, but I must say that never before in such style and sophistication.

Located in a priviledged and exclusive location out of the Parana River, in the area know as Delta de El Tigre approx. two hours from the city of Buenos Aires, one of the few on growing deltas in the world.

I have just Checked IN at yet, another fabulous small boutique property in Argentina, this time approximately 40 minutes away from the city of Buenos Aires, in the district of San Isidro.

Their slogan is Live you own local experience in Buenos Aires, and this is the HUB and heart of this new project that opened only three month ago, in the heart of the district of Recoleta.

From the moment you step foot into HUB Porteño, you can feel and experience the sophistication and exclusiveness, achieved by using only native elements, materials and creations.
Last night I spent it at the brand new Palermo Place Buenos Aires, located in the neighborhood of Palermo Hollywood. I would best define them as a basic, clean, modern accommodation option, more on the apart concept than a hotel. Apartment units with all the basic services of a four stars hotel. Conveniently located walking distance to Palermo Soho and Las Canitas, 2 blocks from the subway station.
