Mio Buenos Aires Hotel
The district of Recoleta in Buenos Aires, gave the city its chic reputation, with beautiful apartment blocks, designer boutiques, and tree-flanked avenues. Swanky Recoleta is also home to a 13-story design hotel with an opaque-glass exterior, and the famous six-meter-high front door, made from the slats of old wine barrels. That door tips you off to the hotel’s special relationship with grapes; it’s owned by the wine-making Catena family.
Conveniently located on exclusive Avenida Quintana, Mio Buenos Aires is only a few meters away from art museums, fine restaurants, the city gardens, and of course the high-end shops.
With its dramatic design from rich colors, luxurious textures, and plenty of wood in combination with very friendly and skilled staff, the Mio Buenos Aires is one of a kind.
Stuffed with discreet technology and equipped with super-king-size beds, Delfina Rossi decorated the sober but cozy rooms. The 30 rooms and suites from Mio Buenos Aires feel more like private apartments, albeit extremely stylish ones. Each room is centered around a splendid bathtub and all rooms have balconies. The better suites add extras like steam baths or a hot tub.
The hotel’s own lounge, with vino as the biggest draw, is a stop on the local nightlife circuit. Upstairs at the eighth, you can find the spa, which is the perfect urban retreat for body and soul.
