The youthful vibes from beautiful people hanging around bar, restaurants and small lobby area enhance the romantic mood set by very hip surroundings. The hotel does not rate 5/5 in my book only because the guest rooms are tiny with inconveniently cramped bathrooms. On the other hand, one should not be spending much time in the guest room as all...

Loved the quirky and chic environment. The whole place is dedicated to detail. And random touches. The swimming pool has a crown. Not just any crown, but a gold one. Travelled with 7 people. 6 thought it was the best BA has to offer. The other one didn't think much of the eccentricity, but that was why the rest of...

This hotel is awesome. Designed by Philippe Starck (the Delano, the Mondrian), this hotel is a fantastic treat of lush reds and antique browns. The service is top notch. The pool is fantastic (although I can't say I cared for the gigantic crown in the center of it but oh well). The seemingly impossibly long entrance way will certainly grab...

We chose the Faena for two primary reasons, one being a personal recommendation from a very well-traveled friend and the second being their famed New Year's Eve party (which was really terrific). The Puerto Madero area of Buenos Aires is a funky mix of restored industrial port buildings and new mid- to high-rise structures housing some of the city's best...

Service is very slow. Room needs a total renovation as the style is very early 90's with velvet curtains and red couches. It can be a very good hotel if they fixed a couple things. People at the front desk were very friendly and helpful.

I stayed one night in this hotel passing by ba. The building is wonderfully rebuilt from an anch'io the British factory. Service and restaurant are below average for a 5 star. The restaurant in particular is not good and smells the kitchen

This was our second time in BA and we decided to try the cool Faena Hotel. The location is nice, in the new Puerto Madera, where you can walk, eat, drink. The main problem here are the rooms! They need a renovation badly! The interiors are basically old cheap glass, mirrors and old classic furniture. They made the bathroom as...

If you are going to stay in BA you have to stay at The Faena. It is by far one of the best boutique hotels. Very exclusive and hip. Just an FYI -All tips in BA have to be given in cash as there is no place on restaurant or hotel receipts for gratuity. Take cash as we had a...

Great location to visit the pier area, hidden away int he middle of the big city. Wonderful lobby bar and pool with great decor and service. We hung out at the pool to cool down during the day and for a quick drink in the evening. Very relaxing. The rooms are spacious and the bathrooms have separate toilet and shower...

Staying in Puerto Madero

Neighborhood Profile
Puerto Madero
From its refurbished red brick buildings and port cranes to its modern skyscrapers and luxurious apartment buildings, Puerto Madero is the perfect combination of old and new. The river provides a quiet, relaxing atmosphere that contrasts with the hustle and bustle of heavy traffic just blocks away. Across the river, flanked by skyscrapers, are beautiful parks and quiet streets that make this neighborhood a unique destination in a city as busy as Buenos Aires. The restaurants, bars, and nightclubs on the docks make it a prime spot for nights out and have come to symbolize this area. Puerto Madero is even more striking after dark, when the lights from the docks and skyscrapers glow against the night sky.
