See our selecton of sample itineraries which feature Faena

Located in the neighbourhood of Puerto Madero, a ten minute taxi ride from downtown Buenos Aires, the Faena is a sophisticated hotel which brings together the most refined aspects of art and culture.

The two designers, Philippe Starck and Alan Faena, who is also the owner, have succeeded in creating a stylish and chic hotel where guests can experience fashion, design gastronomy and entertainment. Originally a warehouse, the exterior of the building has been left as it is, yet in no way does this prepare you for the uniquely creative interiors.

There are two restaurants; the formal El Bistro which is entirely decorated in white with unicorn heads adorning the wall, and serving international cuisine - and El Mercado, which is inspired by the European markets and Catinas of Buenos Aires and serves traditional Argentine cuisine.

Each room represents a different period in Argentine history, featuring white décor and linen throughout, with their bathrooms separated by a glass wall. There is a large outdoor pool with a more casual bar and restaurant area, and the hotel also boasts a 'Leading Spa' which is the only one in they city, offering a host of treatments and therapies as well as a hammam.

The Faena has one of the best tango salons in Buenos Aires where guests can have dinner before watching this passionate and intimate dance only a few feet away.
