Through folds of red velvet, sweeping panoramic views and whispers of golden Belle Époque elegance, the hotel is an urban oasis located in the very heart of the city. Just a few steps away from the Financial District, Faena Hotel celebrates the spirit of the city that never sleeps. Bursting with flavor and flowing with Argentina’s famous red wines, it has become an epicurean destination ranging from an authentic estancia-style asado barbecue in El Mercado to Bistro Sur’s haute cuisine. A staple in the Buenos Aires social scene, craft cocktails and bottles of Malbec are sipped nightly at the exclusive Library Lounge and Poolbar. El Cabaret is home to the world’s most riveting tango show—Rojo Tango. Ancestral healing rituals and a wide variety of exceptional therapies make Faena Spa one of the best-kept secrets in town. An iconic destination, Faena Hotel Buenos Aires draws fashionable crowds to Puerto Madero with its stunning outdoor pool, one of the city’s prime see-and-be-seen spots.

ABCDaydream wrote a review Yesterday
Buenos Aires, Argentina71 contributions14 helpful votes
I highly recommend a staycation at Faena Buenos Aires, especially if you can benefit from the great rates for residents. Sundays at the pool can be very busy so I would go for a weekday stay to completely immerse yourself in the Faena experience. It's like a daydream. El Porteño building (as the historic mill transformed into FAENA hotel was formerly known) had been slated for demolition and was saved by historic conservationists in the 1990s. I learned after staying here that the building's bricks were originally imported from Manchester and could not believe that I was staying in a building whose red brick façade came from my University city! Take time to enjoy breakfast surrounded by the Palo Borracho trees [which blossom with huge orchid like pink flowers in Autumn] or inside with a view of the open kitchen and the glass cabinets full of beautiful china, glass and memories. Make sure to have the fruit plate which changes daily. Raspberries, peaches and plumbs were the best treat as well as the home toasted muesli. Poolside, my diet was mostly a liquid one. I loved both the Faena Rosé and Torrontes, the super healthy O'Campo Mocktail of rosemary, grapefruit, ginger and lime, and the earl grey tea served in a perfect teapot. My favorite place to sit is on the daybed at the opposite end of the pool to the bar and its a must to return at night when the whole pool is transformed with red lights flickering on the water and relaxing lounge music that brings back so many memories. My room was large and extremely comfortable, the sumptuous velvet curtains enclosing the bathroom so much fun, and the cleanliness of the room impeccable. I loved the little desk and delicate silver chair in the bathroom. My view of the pool and the city. I loved the red interiors of the closets and was glad I had brought some nice dresses to hang there. The temperature in the room was perfect. Because I asked to change rooms I had a twin room and even though the bed was small it was so comfortable that I slept like a baby without even moving. I loved to draw the curtains even though I usually don't because, why not if you can open and close them at the flick of a switch by the bed! Early morning I turned off the aircon and opened my window to listen to the sound of the birds singing and the water spouting out of the crown fountain in the distance. I especially appreciated Fernando's welcome with his white cape at the door, Delfina checking me in, getting me a seat at the pool on a busy Sunday, and sending a lovely surprise bottle of bubbles to my room due to a confusion about the pool menu service. A very thoughtful gesture! Federico and his colleague at breakfast who served me several coffees, Gisela and Fernanda taking care of my room service requests, Juan Batista who checked me out and let me stay a little longer. Ariel and others who searched and found my favorite FAENA notepads in different drawers and cupboards so I could sketch, and all the staff around the pool where I hung out most of the time! That's the short version of my daydream experience at the fabulous FAENA!

We have been living in Buenos Aires for the last 3 years and because of the pandemia and not being able to travel we decided to spent a weekend at Faena. From the decor of the hotel by Philip Stark, the spacious room with the incredible bath tub,having breakfast in the lovely court yard and enjoying the fabulous pool it made our stay so enjoyable and special. We must add the special treatment from the staff from Ariel customer relations to Geremias and Vanesa at the pool

This place is over the top. A masterful conversion of a cruddy factory into a luxurious hotel features a lovely pool garden and on-site restaurant. Decor is modern with period, baroque details. Very comfortable rooms.

Amazing experience- 3 nights HOTEL IS OUTSTANDING. GREAT PLACE TO SCAPE the city. Really good food. But I have to say the JEREMIAS at the pool area made all the difference - not only is he an extra nice guy - but was always near to take an order or offer some advice. This type of OVER the top service makes this hotel great! GRACIAS TOTALES MACHO! nos vemos a la prox!

I'll start out by saying, if you're in BA, this place is definitely worth a visit. It's very stylish and a very cool place to hang out. Starting there as a tourist however, is another story. The rooms are tiny. Decor (outside the rooms) is amazing, Service is okay, location is good, but everything else is underwhelming. Came here on my honeymoon, so was in the mood to splurge. We also attended the much lauded New Year's Eve party. Unfortunately, if I'm being totally honest, the party was a little dull and we retreated back to our tiny rooms early, a bit disappointed. I'm from New York, so I'm used to cramped spaces and overpriced items, but this just did not live up to the hype. There are much better elite hotels in BA for travelers, better off staying somewhere else.
