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.

We had read reviews on the Tango Show at the Faena and decided to book in and stay. Our time in Argentina was coming to an end and we wanted to finish it on a high note. The Tango show was fantastic and the 4 course dinner exceeded our expectations. Wine and soft drinks are included which was a pleasant surprise. The hotel as a Miami vibe, it looks very opulent on entering and the door guys are very keen and want to make sure you are staying on arrival. Our room was not ready and so we went for a lunch in the El Mercado ( hotel restaurant). Initially the service was good , we ordered starters but didn’t want to rush and asked the waiter to come back after we had had our starters before ordering our main. We ordered fish which was very disappointing and then basically we didn’t see our waiter again. We had to ask another member of staff for the bill and then another to pay. All the young staff were busy talking and no one said anything as we left. Not what we expected from the Faena! Once past the entrance you soon realize that the Faena is in need of a revamp. The hallways are dingy and unwelcoming. Our corner suite was spacious, old, in need of fresh paint and it had a peculiar banging noise? The bedding was fresh and felt nice. 2 complimentary coffee pods, a kettle( no tea),no milk, no bottled water meant we had to ask for more with milk. The fridge was full of offerings that you could purchase including water! We had a few incidents that were dealt with quickly and professionally ( tub wouldn’t fill and wifi was poor). After the show we popped in the hotel bar for a drink ( apparently we needed to book?) but strongly told the waitress that we were staying at the hotel and she politely found us a spot. The biggest delight was the singer Angela Navarro, Wow she made our night. Absolutely amazing! It’s a long review but to sum it up. The rooms are not five star for the price you pay but the Tango Show ( which was $250 each extra) and the Club bar made it a five star experience.

Constant noise from several sources (bathroom, construction and the bar). The construction noise was mind numbing, it literally made us wretch and gave us unbearable headaches. They refused to apologize about it, only saying they “understood our point of view” and offered us two resolutions: downgrade to an impossibly tiny room or leave and sort out the bill in the morning when the manager is back, which basically means they’d charge us for the night. It is unacceptable that they’d rather leave guests in physical pain than be courteous. Come to this hotel if you are a sadist!

I do not understand some of the poor reviews on this site. Right from the greeting as we got out of the taxi to leaving, the experience was outstanding. Every member of staff we met was very friendly but more importantly extremely professional. The entrance lobby is impressive, the bar stylish and the pool area welcoming. Breakfast was well cooked with great variety of choice. The hotel exuded five star standard. Our room was a duplex and perhaps did not reach the high standards of the rest of the hotel. It was large but felt bland as there was little decor on the walls. However, the bed was very comfortable and the bathroom excellent. Overall, an excellent stay.

Faena is a nice boutique-type hotel that used to be a must-visit in Buenos Aires. Nonetheless, my last visit was beyond disappointing, especially by sex workers harassing hotel guests day and night. The very young staff is friendly and ready to help you, however few of them needs more training in avoiding embarrassing moments to the guests, as quarrelling out loud.

My stay at Faena Hotel was a blend of positives and negatives, which might be important for prospective guests seeking a comprehensive view. Negative Aspects: 1. "Outdated Furniture: Disappointingly, the hotel's furniture appeared obsolete and could use an upgrade to match its luxury status." 2. "Maintenance Issues: The property's upkeep was lacking, evidenced by dry plants in the garden and hazardous conditions around the pool area due to moving wooden floors. The pool water was also notably unclean." 3. "Spa Experience: While the staff was friendly during parties, the lack of acknowledgment or greeting by spa personnel when passing by was disheartening." 4. "Room Quality: The duplex suite, despite its street view, suffered from poor noise insulation and inadequately isolated windows, which affected the overall experience. And there was no turn down service at all. Conclusion: While the Faena Hotel in Buenos Aires has aspects to appreciate, such as a fantastic breakfast and a party-friendly atmosphere, it falls short in terms of maintenance, outdated furnishings, and room quality. Prospective guests should consider these aspects before making a reservation at the Faena Hotel in Buenos Aires.

I recently stayed at Faena Buenos Aires, and the experience was disappointing. The windows of the suite were filthy, offering a grim view of the city. The facility felt outdated and lacked any charm, making it an uninviting place to stay. The suite had no noteworthy views, and the absence of a turn-down service added to the overall lack of attention to detail. The only positive aspect was the friendly staff, but unfortunately, it couldn't compensate for the overall loveless atmosphere.

Wonderful experience at Faena Buenos Aires. The hotel is very stylish - great example of a reconversion of an industrial building, exuberant decor, uber-stylish... Great atmosphere too, especially at the lounge bar and around the swimming pool (just note that aren't that many sun loungers around the pool and it will be busy in season!). Not necessarily a family hotel (we were with our 14 and 12 year old children) but it didn't feel we didn't fit in - far from it. We had a very good dinner at The Mercado restaurant and the breakfasts there were excellent too (but again the breakfast room can get busy at peak hour). We loved the on-site Tango Show. The location in Puerto Madero proved to be great too - clean/safe neighborhood with many restaurants/bars nearby but also a convenient base to go to various parts of BA.

We stayed at the Faena very recently and had a very nice experience. The hotel is located in a great part of Buenos Aires and in a very walkable and safe location – plenty of restaurant choices close-by and for tourists like us, an easy walk to the main part of Buenos Aires. Rooms were great and the check-in was efficient with a sit down with a person – more akin to something you would see in a resort type of a location and not one in the middle of a metropolis. Zero issues with room cleaning services. The food at Italfast was beyond expectations with excellent quality and taste – we are both vegetarian and their attention to our specific requests was very commendable. I must say that the breakfast at the Mercado was just okay – more “plain” but certainly efficient. The hotel reached out to us well prior to our stay to enquire about Airport pick-ups and they stayed on top of it as our flights were cancelled three times (ridiculous, I know!).

Unfortunately, it wasn't what we expected... We imagined a cozy, elegant hotel, but it wasn't what we found. We stayed at FAENA this weekend, me, my husband and my daughter. We stayed in room 118. In this room the acoustics are very bad... It's right above the bar/restaurant and people are smoking and talking on the sidewalk, making it super difficult to sleep. The hotel areas are more for events than for guests... What we have left for us to stay on a rainy day is a bench in the middle of the hallway. The bar, for events... The restaurants, very limited access. We had dinner at the El Mercado restaurant, an empty restaurant, we had a reservation for 3 people at 7:30 pm. Only 3 tables occupied. We sat down and placed a bag and two bags on the fourth chair. The attendant came to ask us to take our things off the chair because they needed it... IN AN EMPTY RESTAURANT WITH ONLY 3 TABLES... We took off our things, what to do... Until the end of dinner at 8:30 pm, the restaurant remained empty... They didn't use the chair... Only God can understand. But this is the profile of the employees, as well as the hotel, cold, arrogant, not very focused on the customer. We will never came back. I prefer the warm and polite service found in 5-star hotels in Recoleta. ​
