Only when you book with Chic
A charming eleven-room boutique hotel, Purobaires Boutique Hotel is nestled in the stylish Palermo Soho district of Bueno Aires. Interiors are chic and contemporary, with sumptuous touches such as bold patterned fabrics and plush leather headboards adding a touch of luxury. There is a rooftop terrace with a small pool, and for those looking for a spot of pampering the hotel has a spa complete with sauna and massages rooms. Purobaires is the perfect base for those that want to explore the galleries, boutique shops and lively bars of Palermo Soho.
The hotel serves a simple yet appetising breakfast, featuring a range of pastries, jams, tea and the ubiquitous herbal mate.
The Palermo neighbourhood is very well-served for dining options. There are many traditional empanaderias serving empanadas: small pastries filled with delectable sweet and savoury fillings, perfect for a light lunch. If you have a hankering for perfectly chargrilled Argentine steak served with a bottle of punchy Malbec, head to one of the many Parillas in the surrounding streets. A particular favourite is Don Julio, although the helpful concierge team at the hotel will be more than happy to recommend their top spots, and assist with any reservations.
Wooden floors and king-size beds are standard in all of the 11 rooms and a fresh, contemporary design is evident throughout this boutique hotel. Some of the rooms have balconies with views onto the city or onto the Zen Patio. The Baires Room is stunning, with a large private wooden terrace and a Jacuzzi in the en-suite bathroom.
The hotel’s Zen Garden provides a spot of tranquility in the heart of buzzing Buenos Aires, while the chic rooftop terrace is ideal for catching some rays. The hotel’s small pool has lovely views of the city, and is particularly refreshing during the hot summer months. Pamper yourself at the hotel spa; complete with a petite sauna, it offers a range of treatments and massages to indulge in.
Palermo Soho is popular with trendy porteños, who come for its excellent clothing and home boutiques on Gurruchaga, Honduras and Malabia. During the weekends, Plaza Serrano and Plaza Armenia come alive with chic vintage and antique markets. Artlovers should make a beeline for MALBA, the city’s modern-art museum featuring works by Frida Kahlo among others, and the Museo Nacional de Arte Decorative, home to hundreds of fascinating objets d’art.
