Unlike any other hotel in the country (or continent), the Faena is one of those places that you’ll remember long after you’ve checked out. Imagine a place drenched in red, gold and white, with eye-catching art adorning the walls, and lavish features like candelabra and velvet drapes starring throughout. The design comes courtesy of the renowned Philippe Starck, whose distinctive style is reflected in the form of the many whimsical features. But beyond the look of the Faena, which is studded in the upmarket Puerto Madero district, you’ll also be wowed by the experiences here too. Watch mesmerizing tango performances in the in-house theater, sip Malbec in the wine cellar, and play all day in the outdoor pool.

Rooms at Faena Buenos Aires

Bold, glamorous, and lavish, the rooms and suites at Faena have been designed to turn heads. Think leather furniture, velvet curtains, gilded mirrors, bathrooms clad in arabescato marble, and claw-foot bed frames, all united by a color palette of white, gold and red. Your queen or king-size bed is placed in the center of the room, with a view of the park or city. Bathrooms are equipped with twin sinks and rain showers, and some come with roll top baths too. Upgrade to a suite for more luxuries, such as jetted tubs, lounges, terraces, dining rooms, and views of the Costanera Sur Ecological Reserve. You can also get butler service in the top suite categories.
