“This hotel has not yet been inspected and reviewed by the Hotel Guru but has been recommended by other guides that we respect.”
As the name suggests, pop art is the theme here in Buenos Aires' "first budget boutique hotel". It opened late last year in the emerging Villa Crespo neighbourhood, which has a scattering of hip cafes and inventive restaurants but without the tourist saturation of nearby Palermo. Clean, fresh and urban, the 44-room property doesn't let you forget where you are: its "pop" logo branded on to everything from the hangers to the soaps. You also get plenty of modern extras too, including an iPod dock and a security safe that's "big enough for a laptop". Breakfast involves taking a voucher to a cafe down the road, which is unusual but no real inconvenience. Now croissants are delivered to your room at 8 a.m.
