Costa Rica 6032, Palermo Viejo, Buenos Aires, Argentina
A dazzling city view from the ample roof terrace and an eclectic mix of urban and stylish entrance lobby reveal CasaSur Palermo Hotel, the latest opening of Argentine boutique chain CasaSur Collection.
Delving into the lively spirit of this South American capital not only means indulging in tasty parrillas, stepping onto the tango floor or shopping at glam boutiques, it's about experiencing the city while feeling part of it. What makes CasaSur Palermo Hotel an ideal base for exploration is its superb location in one of the most walkable tree-lined streets of the onetime bohemian neighborhood of Palermo. The alluring rooftop terrace has an unparalleled view of the city.
Located in the heart of the trendy neighborhood of Palermo Viejo, this winsome property is the perfect base from which to explore the street-side cafes, chic bistros and beyond.
From the moment you step into CasaSur Palermo Hotel you notice the first-class hospitality service as the staff checks every detail for a pleasant arrival. Young architect Gisselle Chalu's chic lobby features earthy tones and a playful bookshelf behind a sleek marble reception area to welcome you in. The entrance lounge keeps its contemporary design while serving as an inviting space to relax and glance at the neighboring streets.
There are 61 rooms in two different categories: Executive Rooms and Deluxe Suites. Some of the Executive Rooms have a balcony overviewing the neighborhood below, while the Deluxe Suites feature a large bookcase that divides the room into a comfortable living room with a four-seater sofa and a separate bedroom. Whatever room you choose you'll find glossy hardwood floors, contemporary designs like geometric wallpaper, and natural light flowing in through the large windows. Acapulco chairs and a polished wood finishing help set the minimalist style tone throughout.
When it comes to the bathroom, not all bathroom design innovations are efficient. Although good water pressure comes from the shower, guests should watch out with a spill-over sink.
If you're in town during heated months you may want to take a dip in the swimming pool. Hang around the fitness center and spa where you can choose from a variety of services such as a massage or a wet sauna session. But the real jewel in CasaSur Palermo Hotel is the rooftop terrace, located on the hotel's eighth floor. With its spacious bar, a splendid vertical garden and remarkable views of the capital city, it will not be easily forgotten.
Included breakfast is served at 6to Brasserie, a popular laid-back bistro from lauded chef Tomás Waisman, equipped with Chester leather couches and iron tables. The homemade pastries served at breakfast and teatime deserve a special mention and so does the bistro's impeccable service, equally as attentive as in the rest of the hotel.
The hotel's friendly, English-speaking concierge team will be happy to arrange all sorts of restaurant and tour reservations.
Though the third hotel of the CasaSur Collection aims towards a more youthful and creative visitor, any kind of traveler looking to stay in a tranquil but trendy neighborhood will enjoy this classy hotel. The business traveler can count on a work desk area that covers the whole length of the room plus a Nespresso machine, a 42-inch TV, minibar, phone dock, and complimentary Wi-Fi. For leisure travelers, CasaSur Palermo Hotel is walking distance from a great blend of global trends in gastronomy, fashion, and local art.
