Faena Hotel Buenos Aires

Faena Hotel Buenos Aires



Faena Hotel Buenos Aires is an award-winning national hotel in the spicy neighborhood of Puerto Madero, Argentina. It is a five-star resort that plays host to an eclectic mix of both young and old guests. 

Some notable guests who have enjoyed this luxury hotel's impressive ambiance include Emma Watson and Justin Bieber. Madonna, Lady Gaga, Sting, Roger Waters, Sam Le Bon, and John Cusack also stayed here. 

The hotel offers a desirable ambiance that caters to guests' preferences searching for a luxurious experience on their much-awaited getaway. 

Location

Argentina is one of the world’s most famous tourist destinations. Buenos Aires is the capital city that attracts all the attention naturally. Besides, this is where the prime location of the Faena Hotel makes the difference. 

Located in Puerto Madero's heart and on the Rio de la Plata, the Faena Hotel offers scenic views and urban attractions. The resort is on Martha Salotti road, one of the posh neighborhoods, amongst silver glittering high-rises, tea warehouses, scenic cocktail bars, and carefully kept jogging paths. 

The location is also favorable, with the domestic airport only a 25 minutes drive away. Moreover, the nearest train station Retiro is also 3 km away. It also offers valet parking for its esteemed guests.

Structure

The ruby-red building of the Faena Hotel Buenos features soaring ceilings and striking city views. But the red stone building does not even hint at what awaits you inside. The place is a signature creation by Philippe Starck who is a well-known industrial architect from France. 

History

Looking at the majestic building, who can imagine it was once slated for demolition. In 1988, the then El Porteño building would have been demolished had the local cultural preservation associations not saved it from the wrecking ball. 

Former fashion designer Alan Faena later purchased the property. He then developed the structure together with interior designer Philippe Starck. Later, in October 2004, Faena Hotel Buenos Aires opened its gates to welcome guests. 

Rooms 

Intricate hand-embroidered throws, luxurious carpets and drapes, white leather armchairs, and arabescato marble bathrooms all define the domestic spaces at Faena Hotel Buenos. The accommodation options for guests include rooms, studios, and suites. All the living spaces here are an example of pure luxury. 

The rooms vary from 375 Sq. Ft to 484 Sq. Ft in size. They feature luxurious interiors with queen or king beds and bathrooms with all essentials and amenities. The best thing about all these rooms is that they offer scenic views of the park or city. 

The slightly bigger options, studios, span over 595 sq. Ft. In this category, guests can choose between two domestic options — Loft Studio and Corner Studio. Loft studios feature a queen bed and bathroom with all essentials. However, you can choose to enjoy either the city view or park view. In contrast, the corner studio features king-sized beds and offers the city view only. 

Suites

They have a variety of suites featuring different sizes, views, and amenities. All these suites feature an attached toilet, while some also have a bathroom. The most basic suite is the Duplex Suite, with its amazing city views. It is followed by the Porteño Suite, in which you can choose to have either city or park views.

Like its name, the Grand Duplex Suite is grander with a well-decorated interior and a panoramic city view. The hotel's featured suite is the Tower Suite, which offers a lush premier park view with a marble bathroom and rich furnishing. It also features two toilets that feature the latest amenities a premium suite has to offer. The hotel also has a suite named after its owner — the Faena Suite. It also offers a premier park view with lots of amenities and king or twin beds. 

Perhaps the best living spaces on offer are the Presidential Suite and Imperial Suite. Both feature two terraces, each offering a different view of both the city and Premier Park. Here you can live just like royals do with all the amenities and luxuries at your disposal. 

The hotel staff and room service are all very attentive to the demands of their customers. You can also enjoy 24-hour room service if you don't want to get out of bed.

Food and Drink

Food and drink at Faena are a reason in themselves to visit this marvelous location. The restaurants and bars here include 

  • Bistro Sur

Bistro Sur is a modern all-white restaurant that serves European and Argentine dishes. It is Faena’s take on a fancy culinary experience with the restaurant bar also serving fancy cocktails.

  • El Mercado

The Mercado restaurant is a more casual dining option at the Faena Hotel Buenos Aires. It is a trinket-filled space that serves a scrumptious breakfast buffet. They also serve Argentine cuisine traditionally cooked in an adobe oven.

  • La Cava

La Cava is the wine cellar with the most comprehensive wine collection in Argentina. In this underground space, you can enjoy a romantic candlelit dinner too. 

  • The Library Lounge

The Library Lounge is an all-day café decorated with shelves of antique books, velvet sofas, and crystal candelabras. They serve coffee, afternoon tea, and light lunch. 

  • El Cabaret

When the restaurant's bar closes, El Cabaret awaits. It may be a hotel bar but, the main attraction is the nightly Rojo Tango show and music performances which guests eagerly attend.

Amenities

The hotel is well-known for its amenities. They have an outdoor infinity pool with a crown-shaped fountain in the center. Besides, it is surrounded by pool lounges where you can relax and enjoy drinks service. 

The Faena Spa is another reason to visit. With the staff trained in ancient healing rituals from around the world, you can enjoy a relaxing experience. The cherry on top is the fitness center with the latest equipment and gear to keep you in form.

Takeaway

Whether you are vacationing in Puerto Madero or are here for business, Faena Hotel Buenos Aires is a place worth staying. It has interconnecting rooms, and the laid-back atmosphere is ideal for families with small children. All in all, if you want to experience true luxury and relaxation, great food, and live entertainment, stay at Faena Buenos Aires.
