Staff at Mine Hotel, in Buenos Aires’ Palermo Soho neighbourhood, are fantastic. They make you feel extremely welcome, and go out of their way to make sure you’re enjoying your stay. Two examples: We mentioned interest in a nearby restaurant for dinner. When we returned from our incredible lunch at UCO, staff had the address of the dinner recommendation all ready for us. At breakfast the next day, we were thrilled to discover they had soy milk. We’d just stayed at two other hotels within the family — Casa Calma and Ilum — and staff there passed on Paul’s allergy info and they made sure to have some on hand for his morning coffee. Isn’t that great service?!
Mine Hotel is designed to maximize your comfort too. Our room had a lovely sitting area — with a welcoming bottle of Argentine wine and some delicious nibblies — and a big bed with purple accents. Floors were cool concrete. I loved the red bathroom furniture against the natural rock wall, as well as the super cute soap dish and toothbrush glass which were embedded with buttons. The huge jetted tub for two, complete with bath salts and bubbles, was very tempting too.
While there’s lots of great restaurants nearby, if you feel like watching a movie in your PJs, the concierge will arrange dinner delivery from a vast selection of menus for you.
A big and delicious breakfast is included in rates. It’s served in a lovely room right next to a heated pool in a pretty garden. You can have breakfast served in your room too for an additional $10 charge. Hang out in the breakfast room in the afternoon and evening too, for snacks, wine and cocktails.
