The tree-lined streets of Palermo Hollywood tell the story of Argentina’s 21st century cultural renaissance: traditional parrillas stand shoulder to shoulder with chic new bars and colourful coffee shops on practically every corner. At the centre of it all is not just an extraordinary hotel, but a truly special Home too.
Its design, like its surroundings, is a perfect blend of the traditional and the modern. Glass walls and open spaces flood the restaurant and spa with natural light whilst the vines and lights creeping around the garden build the sense of a calming, almost ethereal oasis.
Home is not just a name – in many ways the hotel is an extension of its owners, whose taste is reflected down to the smallest detail. And what a stunning taste it is.
Wood panelling salvaged from the building which once stood here and intricate, historic wallpaper complement a rotating ensemble of new art from local creators. The timelessly stylish mid-century furniture – a motif throughout the hotel – epitomises this fusion; much of it is bought at the local flea market and surrounding antiques stores and restored by the owners.
As befits a Home, the people are the real stars. Engaging, attentive, and all perfectly bilingual, they almost make you forget you’re in a hotel – because you’re at Home.
If you can tear yourself away from Home, you’re just eight blocks away from the metro, running from quirky Belgrano right up to the hustle and bustle of Corrientes and 9 de Julio. Home’s own 50-page guide will leave you with no shortage of recommendations in a city aptly dubbed the Paris of Latin America.
