Gay Buenos Aires Buenos Aires City Guide

Shrewdly founded by early Spanish settlers at the delta of the Río de la Plata, Buenos Aires, the sprawling capital of Argentina, has long been one of Latin America’s most important trade hubs, now also a thriving centre of culture, politics and technology. A gay mecca consistently at the forefront of progress and acceptance in the region, Buenos Aires is a worthy city to visit, even if only for the empanadas alone. Besides its meaty gastronomy scene, led by prime Argentine beef and twists on European classics, Buenos Aires boasts upscale luxury hotels and countless distinct barrios to explore; such as fancy Puerto Madero and Plaza Serrano. For the whole month of November, visitors can expect Pride festivities like no other, starting in Palermo Soho and radiating out across the entire city.

The best hotels in Buenos Aires

Let’s start this gay Buenos Aires travel guide with a roundup of the best hotels in Buenos Aires. Choosing where to stay in Buenos Aires will be tough, mostly because there are so many options, especially when it comes to high-end properties. The Alvear Palace is a classic white glove service and will not disappoint. The butler service they provide is one of the best, as most of the butlers have attended the Louis Vuitton course on luggage packing, making them extreme experts. This place is over the top fancy, and if that’s your scene, it’s where you need to be. For a more modern twist, still, with the white glove service sans the gloves, the Alvear Art is the hip younger sister property of the palace and has one of the coolest enclosed rooftop pools in the city. The lobby bar serves some superb craft cocktails, and the rooms are up to date and super tech-friendly There’s also a Four Seasons, which has a mansion in the back of the property for that ultra-exclusive stay that includes speciality suites. The spa and bar at this property are also worth a visit.

Over in a different part of town, which is quickly becoming the place to be, Puerto Madero is home to more artsy lux properties and will soon be adding the trio to the Alvear empire in Buenos Aires. The recently opened Alvear Icon is a beautiful combo of hotel and residences. Nearby to the construction site is Faena, one of the most interesting hotels in the city, and aesthetically brilliant to the eye. If you can snag a suite here, they are incredibly different and special. The hotel also has some exciting public spaces where there is constant live music and shows. It also features Rojo Tango in their in-house theatre, which is known as one of the best tango cabaret shows in the city. And don’t miss the unicorn head decor of Bistro Sur.

Those looking for more of a neighbourhood experience where one can immerse themselves like a local should try Palermo, which is divided up into so many different sub-neighbourhoods (Palermo SoHo, Palermo Hollywood, etc.); you know it’s chic as hell. Hotels worthy of a stay include Fierro Hotel, Legado Mítico and Home Hotel.
