Located in the heart of the distinguished Recoleta district of Buenos Aires, the stylish Mio Buenos Aires Hotel is the perfect base to explore some of the wonderful attractions of Argentina’s vibrant capital city.
The moment guests walk through Mio’s beautiful six-metre high doors constructed of French Oak from wine barrels, a world of exquisite design, luxury, and state-of-the-art technology ensure that an unforgettable experience awaits. (Click on photo to enlarge and see slideshow).
Marble, metals, and wood are juxtaposed in this vineyard-theme establishment where modern and classic are perfectly blended to reflect the vision of its owners, the Catena family, who also owns a country property as well as a vineyard in Mendoza (Catena’s wines are available in each room).
The thirty large rooms and suites offer floor-to-ceiling glass windows, bathing the rooms in natural light. The sexy yet elegant décor is highlighted by the exquisite use of fine materials such as calden (Argentinian wood), silk, glass, French oak, steel, and marble, which create a refined aesthetic along with a tangible sensation of warmth and intimacy.
The semi-open-format bathrooms offer wonderfully polished marble floors and an extraordinary hand-carved wood bathtub (designed by artist Mario Dasso and made from fallen Calden trees).
Despite its small size, amenities abound at this luxury boutique hotel where guests can enjoy a fully-equipped gym, a steam sauna, a spa (including wine treatment therapies), a lounge, and a library. Not to forget Sivela 465, the wonderful restaurant, run by executive chef Lucas Moyano, which invites guests to enjoy a new universe of flavours in contemporary cuisine.
The exceptional location, daring design, and refined luxury make Mio Buenos Aires the perfect option for the traveller seeking design sophistication, excellent service, and proximity to some of Buenos Aires’ key landmarks.
