A stylishly thematic and award-winning boutique hotel, this Palermo Soho inn celebrates Argentine culture. Rooms are named for national icons like Evita, Che Guevara, and Diego Maradona and yet are furnished in an intelligent, mature, and non-gimmicky way. Dark, masculine style (polished wood floors, leather couches, a crackling fireplace bordered by towering bookshelves) heightens the blue-blooded vibe and is a nice change from minimalist competitors.
