Overview

Sexy Buenos Aires sleep with a sceney pool, spa, cabaret and 400-bottle wine cellar

The Look

In trendy Puerto Madero, a waterfront barrio, the Faena Hotel Buenos Aires is built in statuesque red brick, walled in from its buzzing surroundings. The over-the-top style starts in the lobby, with velvet curtains and a sumptuously dark interior. The dramatic color palette of reds, blacks and whites defines the property’s style, and there’s a vibe to match: Beautiful people are everywhere — by the intimate pool, doing business deals in the Library Lounge, eating in the cantina-style El Mercado restaurant.

Bed and Bath

If the public spaces are a study in dark drama, the guestrooms are the opposite. Decorated in bright reds and pure whites, the rooms add drama, some with sleek glass-walled bathrooms, others with mirrored furniture and leather and metallic accents. But wood floors and large windows create a light, airy ambience, while blackout shades ensure undisturbed rest.

Beyond

Entering the white and gold El Bistro, the property’s upscale restaurant, can be disarming. Don’t let the unicorn heads scare you — the experience will be unusual from start to finish, especially if you order dessert (try the white chocolate egg with a gooey tangerine yolk). El Bistro is just one of the hotel’s public spaces dedicated to the kind of sceney nightlife found in locales like Miami Beach. The famed El Cabaret has authentic tango shows, while the Cellar holds 400 bottles of wine, and the Pool Bar serves fruity cocktails late into the night.

In the Area

Spend an afternoon flexing that plastic in Palermo Soho, a posh part of town that’s home to some of the area’s most unique boutiques. Continue your shopping stocking up on leather and exotic skins at Lopez Taibo and Casa Lopez. When night falls, see an opera or ballet at the legendary Teatro Colón, considered to have some of the best acoustics in the world.

Impecable at every level.
Hernán A

The staff, the room, and every need were met and exceeded. It was an incredible experience for my partner and me. I wish to be there now, as I write this comment. It was a treat at every level.

If you visit Buenos Aires, this is the place that will make your experience unforgettable.

Well Located and Premium Service!
Caivano

At Puerto Madero, an Oasis in Buenos Aires. The service is perfect and a "unique" experience. The Tango Performance at night, named "Rojo", is modern and sensual. The bar is the best place to stay and feel the hotel. Both restaurants are very good.

Welcoming

I have never felt so welcomed in a hotel as I felt at Faena. Everyone -- from check in to room service to restaurant to check out -- was very nice. Accommodations are charming and comfortable, the breakfast is delicious and I had great drink (and excellent music) at the beautiful library-bar. I will definitely return!
