Puerto Madero (Buenos Aires, Argentina)
This very chic hotel was designed by Philippe Starck, from the shell of an old warehouse in the docklands area of Buenos Aires. There are several restaurants, one of which is formal and with a totally white décor, and with unicorn heads on the walls. The bar is plush with velvet sofas and chandeliers. The pool is large with a more casual pool-bar and restaurant. The Cabaret and Tango show at El Rojo Tango is very popular, and the Purple Lounge hosts musical and theatrical events.
Relaxing in the outside pool with comfortable loungers, sauna/fitness area and small business centre.
The rooms have white décor and linen throughout. The bathroom is separated from the room by glass walls: all have showers and some have a bath. The blinds and curtains are controlled by an electronic device and the mirror block turns round to display the TV and mini-bar. Part of the hotel is also private apartments.
A stylish option to stay just outside the traffic and activity of the city centre.
