Fierro Hotel Boutique
Address: Soler 5862
Neighborhood: Palermo Hollywood
City: Buenos Aires
Opened in October 2010, Fierro’s 22 superior rooms and four balcony suites all measure 441 square feet, start at $150/night, and come with 32-inch LCD TVs, complimentary Wi-Fi, iPod docks, and rain showers (no bathtubs, alas). The suites also include complimentary use of an iPad during your stay. Sure, all of that sounds pretty nice, but for just $250/night why not splurge on the 535-square-foot Terrace Suite, which includes its own large red eucalyptus deck, raised Jacuzzi, and brick barbecue pit, better known as a parilla in these parts? No matter your choice, there’s also a heated outdoor pool with hydromassage chairs and deck on the seventh floor, complete with a sauna and Jacuzzi. (Although there’s no in-hotel gym, Fierro has a deal with a nearby health club for complimentary workouts, and there are in-room massages.) On the ground floor, the excellent Hernán Gipponi Restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, with a small garden on one side, while a wine cellar holds weekly tastings and is curated by the president of the Argentine Sommelier Association. Behind the scenes, Fierro even has a private generator, so you won’t have to worry about Buenos Aires’s pesky summer blackouts.
