Faena Hotel + Universe
The landmark downtown building that houses the Faena Hotel + Universe was once a grain depository, but these humble origins are no longer in evidence – to put it mildly. Now, mirrored tables, benches upholstered in black pony-hair, and gold-leafed chairs provide quirky but tasteful accents to a carefully considered modern interior design by superstar Philippe Starck.
Located in the Puerto Madero neighborhood near the riverside promenade, the Faena is a lovely boutique-style alternative to larger chain hotels. We recommend that you try the Turkish-style hammam at the spa, have a drink at the poolside terrace, and take in the excellent Rojo Tango show.
