Where to stay: Sometimes it's nice to escape the structure of the city. Stay in an oasis surrounded by trees and and flora without leaving BA's bounds.
Favorite neighborhood: Palermo. Porteños love to browse Palermo Soho's ceramics scene, brunch the day away in Palermo Hollywood, or find peaceful seclusion in Palermo Chico. When the sun goes down, BA's locals catch up at the city's chicest nightclubs.
Where to stay: Color splashes public walls and comfort is paramount in Buenos Aires. Stay in an apartment that showcases both.
Where to stay: Simply sophisticated apartments recall the stylish attitudes of BA's European brethren. Stay in a space with a sprawling rooftop terrace.

Where to stay: Puerto Madero maintains scrupulous style. Stay in a studio that embodies its carefully considered taste.
Local flavor: Tango's roots in Balvanera. From public murals to private radio stations, the look and sound of singer Carlos Gardel permeates Buenos Aires' atmosphere. Gardel put Balvanera on the Tango map and the neighborhood reciprocated by putting him on their buildings.
