Rooms & Rates
Housed in the city’s first skyscraper, erected in 1929 by a shipping magnate, the Sofitel Buenos Aires has maintained an air of grandeur since its days as a private apartment building. The landmark high-rise is nestled between foreign embassies and art galleries on a tree-lined street in the upscale Recoleta neighborhood.
The scent of verbena blossoms fills the glass atrium lobby as guests make their way across the Neoclassical black-and-white tile entryway. All rooms are furnished with black and crème Art Deco décor and have either one king or two queen beds topped with Sofitel’s own line of mattresses, feather duvets and Frette linens – guaranteeing a good night’s rest. Upper-level rooms offer amazing panoramic views of the city skyline and the Río de la Plata. Nespresso coffeemakers in accommodations start the morning while marble bathrooms with separate showers and tubs are equipped with L'Occitane toiletries, ideal for unwinding after a day of meetings or sightseeing.
Wi-Fi is complimentary in guest rooms as well as throughout the entire building. Guests also have access to the on-site library which hosts guest lecturers speaking about Argentinian wine, art, history and architecture. The hotel also features an indoor pool, hammam and fitness center. Le Sud offers a unique Argentinean twist on upscale French cuisine and the traditional Café Arroyo is open early for cappuccinos and fresh croissants and late for cocktails and small plates. Drinks in La Bibliothèque are best paired with a good read from the bar’s extensive shelves while relaxing by the fireplace.
