My BA Hotel
A ‘mini-break from Buenos Aires’ relentless pace, My BA Hotel is a brand new 1940s-styled boutique getaway in Belgrano where they aim to treat you as part of the family.
rnA two-day stay here will recharge the batteries and have you ready to fight fire with fire once again in Buenos Aries’ party hives, so if you do need some time out you know where to come.
rnLocated inconspicuously amid las Barrancas de Belgrano (‘banks of Belgrano’) near the cricket pitch, this is as peaceful an area as you will find in Capital Federal: it has trees, schools, hospitals and what porteños call ‘real Argentines'; it is named after Manuel Belgrano, a politician and military leader who created the national flag.
rnThe hotel has 10 rooms, but spend the extra US$35 and book a deluxe room or fork out US$220 on the charming My Suite, which will send you right back to the days of bowler hats. For River Plate fans, the football team’s Monumental stadium, where Argentina won the 1978 Football World Cup, is within walking-distance. Puerta Uno is your local bar.
