The luxurious Sofitel Buenos Aires occupies the landmark Torre Bencich skyscraper, which was built in 1929 and looks like it was uprooted from New York and re planted in Buenos Aires.
Located close to Plaza San Martín in the Retiro district, its 20-odd storeys have an elegant Art Deco exterior. The hotel's rooms and suites are decorated to a very high standard and come with satellite TV, wi-fi internet access and good views.
Facilities include an indoor swimming pool, a gym as well as massage rooms. The hotel's main restaurant, 'Sud', serves refined French Mediterranean cuisine and is regarded as one of the best in the city. There is also a library-bar and a versatile café that serves coffee, croissants and light snacks by day and cocktails in the evening. As for sightseeing, Sofitel's downtown location means it is within walking distance to a vast array of Buenos Aires' main attractions.
