While the city is filled with amazing places to stay — from private apartment rentals to big name hotels — there are some seriously charming bed and breakfasts in Buenos Aires. From downtown chic to a countryside getaway in the surrounding towns, we’ve made a list of some of the most beautiful B&Bs where you have to make your next reservation.
Ada & Valentyn
Located in the historical center of Buenos Aires between San Telmo and Plaza de Mayo, this little B&B is run by a Dutch-Argentine couple looking to make any visitor’s stay comfortable and homey. This little neighborhood is the perfect place to wander on a sunny afternoon, popping in and out of shops, cafés, and restaurants. With old stone streets and a mixture of architectural wonders, it’s the perfect little spot to call home while visiting Buenos Aires.
Posada Gotan Bed & Breakfast
In a more traditional, working-class neighborhood of Boedo – you’ll find a cozy home away from home while visiting Buenos Aires. The owners have sensational reviews regarding their hospitality and homemade croissants (which, for me, I take very seriously).Posada Gotan Bed & Breakfast uses the original exposed brick wall to create texture and a contrast against the other wooden features in the building. A cute patio garden is available for use throughout the day as well.
Jam Suites Boutique Hotel
While not technically a bed & breakfast, this boutique hotel has seven uniquely designed rooms with personal spas to make your stay special. The hotel is designed with a welcoming sitting area and fireplace, a baby grand piano for guests to play swooning tunes, and a beautiful garden with a sitting area and over-grown bushes and trees giving guests all the privacy they need. Bike rentals and complimentary shuttle buses are among some of the perks of staying at Jam Suites Boutique Hotel. While a complimentary breakfast is served every morning, the neighborhood is full of tasty bakeries and sweet shops to start off your morning right.
Livian Guest House
Still within the city hub, this section of Palermo neighborhood will leave you feeling as if you’ve escaped the downtown city frenzy. The streets are lined with overhanging trees and the buildings are filled more with families than business, although you can find boutiques and bars sprinkled about. What makes this guest house a true gem are the extra add-on’s such as yoga classes, tango lessons, tours, and the fact that it’s a pet-friendly institution. The Livian Guest House also has a beautiful garden patio where guests can soak up the sun and enjoy the quiet ambiance within the bustling city.
And while tango, meat, and yerba maté (the highly bitter yet addictive tea) are certainly highlights of an Argentine visit, searching out other tours, expeditions and events can make your visit so much more memorable.
