VAIN BOUTIQUE BUENOS AIRES
Thames 2226, Palermo SOHO, Buenos Aires, Argentina
In a sense, the present wave of high-design boutique hotels in Buenos Aires is somewhat pretentious. But when a hotel calls itself vainly (Vain), it’s impossible not to loosen the rope a little. This is the humor that’s often lacking in this kind of resort, and is a magnificent presentation of an ingenious boutique hotel with 15 rooms, located in Palermo Viejo, a rabidly contemporary area of Buenos Aires.
Like most of the best places in Buenos Aires, the Vain occupies a traditional construction of the temple, but isn’t anchored in the past. An eclectic collection of contemporary furniture and objects animate the well-preserved insides, which enjoy a strong Art Deco flavor.
Although it’s true that the most modest rooms are completely small, they have an fantastic price-quality ratio, and the higher-class ones aren’t just luxurious, but also elegant. The suites are supplied with private terraces, while the typical ones overlook the road or a common central courtyard. The hotel provides a restaurant more than anything to provide service, because, in this region, the gastronomic offer is so broad that it’s going to cost you to pick the restaurants you would like to try.
Directions to the hotel: The Vain Boutique Hotel is located 25 km (1 h) from Ezeiza Airport. Shuttle service is available at a price of USD 44 for up to 2 people or USD 55 for 3 to 4 people.
