Hub PorteñoGuests of the 11-room Hub Porteño in Recoleta don’t just reserve a room here, they are setting up their experience of the city. The hotel staff are intent on making sure, for example, that a guest understands the polo match they've brought him to or that a guest can glimpse a bit of gaucho culture in the countryside. Mirroring the experiences, the contemporary decor of each room is unique. Each blends a mix of vintage furnishings from local auctions with art on loan from the Fortabat Art Collection. A stylish living room serves as a meeting place for guests with its library, afternoon tea, and snacks sent out from the kitchen. The rooftop is home to a cozy terrace lined with comfy sofas and a bartender serving cocktails amid leafy views of the neighborhood, while the on-site restaurant from an el Bulli–trained chef features a fig tree growing right through its center.
