About Sofitel Buenos Aires Recoleta
Located in the heart of Recoleta, The Sofitel Buenos Aires takes its cue from its well-heeled neighbourhood. Interiors are modern, showcasing local temporary art collections. The marble lobby sets an impressive tone, displaying a huge sculpture by Argentine artist, Gerardo Wohlgemuth. Stay in spacious rooms complete with writing desks, flat screen televisions and 24-hour room service.
Dining wise, the Brick whips up Argentinean cuisine amid upholstered velvet chairs and a colourful glass sculpture. Breakfasts are feasts with everything from freshly baked pastries to eggs-any-way. Tea is also a ‘thing’ with a dedicated patisserie. You can also enjoy coffee in the garden, a rarity in downtown Buenos Aires.
The hotel boasts a swanky bar with a post-work happy hour. With excellent cocktails it’s easy to stay put, but the location is ideal; within striking distance of Recoleta’s revered restaurants and bars. Unwind in the heated indoor pool and sauna. Or flick through an art book in the elegantly designed library, far from an afterthought.
