Relaxing residential retreat
Home Hotel is an eco-design dream of a boutique hotel, based in a simple ivy-entwined structure in residential Buenos Aires. Each room is kitted out in vintage floral wallpapers and with retro Scandinavian furniture. Staying here is an open-air adventure; an outdoor passageway leads you to the restaurant overlooking the gorgeous grounds. There’s no place like it.The cosy, all-natural spa uses the hotel’s own range of products. It’s open daily between 8.30am and 9.30pm for a whole range of treatments, including massages using techniques from India, Thailand and California.
