My husband and I just got back from a week in Buenos Aires where we had an absolutely marvelous stay at Home. There is so much to recommend it but above all, the staff is phenomenal. They care about whether you are having a good time in a city they know and love and without being at all obtrusive, figure out your preferences and offer recommendations. (The hotel also presents you with the most wonderful guide to the surrounding neighborhood when you check in, which we found invaluable.) And it's so nice to be greeted by name when you return Home. They are also great at getting you reservations at some of the city's best restaurants that are right in the neighborhood like Osaka, Tegui, Mosoq and Olsen (best for brunch). The second standout feature is the design. It's a beautiful example of a warm and light-filled modernism and the lobby, which is spacious and a nice place to hang out and read or invite friends, is filled with mid-century pieces that make it inviting and meant to be used rather than feeling like a studio set or museum. Even the housekeeping staff maintains the dedication to the style - when we asked for an extra blanket, the woman who brought it thought the color clashed with our room (we wouldn't have cared but she did) and came right back with a better match. We also loved the breakfast (included) that features beautifully presented, exquisite tiny tastes and exotically paired juices - it is thankfully the polar opposite of the trough-like breakfast buffets at chain hotels. There is also a pool and spa/sauna. The pool and garden are really pretty but being the Argentine fall/winter it was too cold to swim. We liked using the very small sauna to unwind after a day of sightseeing and before getting ready to go out for the evening. The esthetician at the spa was excellent and the prices quite reasonable. The only downside for some might be the location. Although Palermo Hollywood is trendy and for foodies, it's a mecca, there is not a lot of shopping or other things in the neighborhood and the Subte (metro) is about 15 minutes walk away - eminently doable but in hot or rainy weather it would less pleasant. Still, there are tons of radiotaxis that you can hail on the street right outside Home and they are an inexpensive way to get around the city. Also, there could be better light for reading in rooms. All in all, this is a true boutique hotel, which is too often just a label for small, in the sense of having a unique identity/style and a way of really taking superb care of guests. We travel internationally a lot (6 or 7 times a year) and while this is one of the most moderately priced hotels we've stayed at, it is at the top of our list of places we love and will want to return to.
