This hotel has it all including a great pool, staff ambiance and if you're in the mood there's the Tango Rojo show in the promenade. Don't miss the hotel bar. Intimate and very luxurious. If I weren't a guess, I would come here at least once for a drink. If you have the drink at night, and the weather is...

I very rarely give a 5, but this hotel and its service's level deserves a 5 or excellent in my experience. The room was very nice, quiet and very comfortable beds. The breakfast in the El Mercado was very good. I like the fact that the hotel felt very quiet and very private. The location in Puerto Madero was excellent.

Last month my wife and I stayed at the Faena Hotel for the first time for a pre-cruise stop-over. It was perfect - the hotel and room design was inviting and impressive. The fact that it is located in the Puerto Madero section of Buenos Aires and relatively close to the cruise port made it a perfect choice. Puerto Madero...

We landed in BA after a long trek around the Continent and found the Faena to be just right mix of TRENDY and EFFICIENT. The interior remains iconic and groovy while the location adjacent the river just gets better and better. Sometimes these painfully hip hotels can be all surface no service but that is NOT the case here--transportion, resturant...

Faena is designed by Philippe Starck and you see it the moment you enter the building. Every detail has its own twist and lots of thoughts has been put in to the interior, and you either love it or hate it. The service does however not live up to this standard. You receptionist has been changed into an experience manager...

We arrived at the Faena hotel after traveling for 24 hours straight and they checked us in quickly and got us into our room within 15 minutes. They even upgraded us to the Presidential Suite, which was basically an apartment. Restaurant, bar and pool were all excellent, as is the location.

Staying in Puerto Madero

Neighbourhood Profile
Puerto Madero
From its refurbished red brick buildings and port cranes to its modern skyscrapers and luxurious apartment buildings, Puerto Madero is the perfect combination of old and new. The river provides a quiet, relaxing atmosphere that contrasts with the hustle and bustle of heavy traffic just blocks away. Across the river, flanked by skyscrapers, are beautiful parks and quiet streets that make this neighbourhood a unique destination in a city as busy as Buenos Aires. The restaurants, bars, and nightclubs on the docks make it a prime spot for nights out and have come to symbolise this area. Puerto Madero is even more striking after dark, when the lights from the docks and skyscrapers glow against the night sky.
