The very English Tom Rixon and his not quite so Argentinian sounding wife Patricia O’Shea conceived the Home Hotel back in 2005 as the first proper boutique hotel in Buenos Aires. While many pretenders have since emerged, this remains one of the very best boutique places to stay in the Argentinian capital.

Ollie, Kate B and Alexandra are here to help give you the inside track.

A melange of minimalist, modern and modish - think llama wool blankets, crisp linens and 40s throwback vintage wallpaper - Home Hotel has 18 rooms in total, including three suites and two loft apartments, all intended to feel like homes away from home. The so-called Other Loft even takes this to its logical conclusion with its own separate entrance from the hotel proper.

The heart of Home Hotel is the Bar & Restaurant where head chef Veronica Yarte cooks up a seasonal storm of classic dishes accompanied by some of the finest (of the very fine) Argentinian wines, with the Bar boasting an excellent range of signature cocktails. In summer, guests can eat al fresco on the decked terrace in the garden.

Also in the garden is the pool, surrounded by deckchairs, where it's quite possible to while away a weekend, cocktail in hand, as hummingbirds dart around the jasmine flowers. For even more indulgence, wander into the spa for facials and massages.

Why we love it

The Home Hotel brunch, served at weekends only, constitutes one of the great hangover cures. For an Anglo-Argentinian love-in try the excellent huevos rancheros and a full English.
