Located in Recoleta – Buenos Aires’ answer to Mayfair, yet with bags more history – Mio Buenos Aires is ideally placed for exploring the eclectic capital.
The 30 rooms and suites are big and bold, with a range of materials from marble, oak (from wine barrels), silk and glass combining with splashes of colour. The open plan bathrooms complete the look, with baths made of caldén, a native Argentine wood, placed in front of floor-to-ceiling glass windows. Every room comes with added extras such as a yoga mat and Wi-Fi, and all have balconies overlooking leafy Recoleta. For the best views in town opt for a Terrace Suite which have a Jacuzzi on the balcony.
Mio Lounge serves breakfast and afternoon tea, and in the evening doubles up as a bar. There are numerous restaurants on the hotel's doorstep, as well as further afield in trendy Palermo and San Telmo, the home of Tango.
As well as a terrace bar overlooking the sights of the city, Mio Buenos Aires has a fantastic spa. Adorned in black stone in order to create a relaxing atmosphere - it does work - it offers a range of treatments and has a Jacuzzi and small gym.
Be sure to pay a visit to the Recoleta Cemetery, the resting place of the infamous Eva Peron.
