Located in the heart of Recoleta, Hub Porteno is one of the latest hotels to touch down in Buenos Aires, and it certainly gets our vote for its location and true Argentine style.
This boutique hotel has only eleven bedrooms, all of which are extremely spacious with high ceilings and get the mix of the contemporary with the traditional spot on. Certainly swaying towards the modern with bright splashes of colour on muted tones and all of the necessary mod cons, homely elements are still very much in play with flowers in rooms and extremely comfortable beds.
The restaurant, Tarquino, was named after the first pedigree bull to be imported into Argentina in 1852. Tarquino was thereafter named as the 'father of their meat', a crowning title that works well for Hub Porteno's restaurant, as the meat is delicious. Food is typically Argentine, yet with a modern twist, and everything is locally sourced and manufactured, even down to the llama wool 'wall paper'.
The staff's local knowledge is unrivalled, and they know everything there is to know about everything in Buenos Aires. Whether it's the coolest club to be seen at, the best Tango show to shimmy to, or the finest Argentinean malbec to drink, they'll have it covered. As well as the usual city sights, the Hub can get hold of polo tickets (and even arrange classes) and take guests to local estancias for a day in the life of a gaucho.
At the hotel itself, there is a gym, sauna, hot tub and treatment room, as well as two bars. One of these bars is on the roof terrace, and also acts as a members club for elite Porteños.
