I have just come back from a quick holiday to Argentina and am still thrilled about my experience at Faena Hotel in Buenos Aires
Stark really expressed himself in this fabulous hotel
When you arrive you start wondering what is going on, because the entrance to the hotel is tiny, just a small door on the street. At first I thought the taxi driver had chosen the service entrance, but then a butler came to welcome us and I realized that was the main entrance. It's like entering secret world. Through a small corridor you reach the reception and you get an idea of what the inside of the hotel is like.
The staff was really super helpful with us. Our flight landed at 8 in the morning and we were at the hotel by 9.30. I thought they wouldn't have given us the room until after lunch but the guy at the reception was great and gave us the first available room so that we could have it right away. Great!!!
The rooms again are a big surprise.... the lobby of the hotel is very dark, but then the rooms are all white and full of light! The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom is pretty spectacular, maybe not practicle.... but for sure spectacular! The walls that separate the bathroom from the bedroom are made of glass so maybe not the best for privacy but they sure do look amazing
We had breakfast twice and the breakfast room is one of the things I liked most in the hotel. A truly beautiful room! So make sure you don't miss it. Also it is great that you can have breakfast until 11 in the morning so if you want to lay in bed a little longer that is possible
But the best part of the hotel is probably the pool. Located on the ground floor I strongly recommand to spend a few hours there as it is incredibly beautiful
On the last day I asked if we could have a late check out and they let us use the room until 2.30pm without any additional charges
Everybody in the hotel has been super nice and professional
I really hope that I can go back to Buenos Aires soon and for sure I will stay again at Faena!
