The ebullient capital of Argentina welcomes visitors with flair. Live it up in a grand 19th-century mansion, a belle époque building or a casa chorizo – so-named for its thin sausage-like shape, set around an elegant courtyard. Better still, the owners of these Buenos Aires B&Bs will greet you with open arms. Here’s our pick of the best.

Rest where Francis Ford Coppola did while filming Tetro (2009) – in the legendary director’s stunning home in Buenos Aires. Sitting in hip Palermo Soho, luxurious rooms are tastefully designed, sporting plenty of gaucho (cowboy) chicness, while Coppola generously shares his private videoteca (cinema library) in the well-appointed living room. A small swimming pool and flower-filled patio complete this very personal stay.

Close to the offbeat neighborhood of Parque Patricios, this charming 19th-century property is centered around a delightful courtyard lined with potted palms. Exposed brick walls in the rooms and terracotta tile floors throughout ensure an authentic Buenos Aires stay, while common areas include the bijou kitchen and breakfast room, where organic delights, sourced from small local producers, are served.

In the heart of the historic San Telmo neighborhood – Bueno Aires’s oldest barrio – Posada de la Luna is a stone’s throw from many of the city’s main sights. Its interior courtyard, wooden floorboards and high ceilings speak to a strong colonial heritage. Unwind in the library or on the leafy patio with a glass of malbec; there is even a parrilla (grill) that you can use to rustle up some Argentine asado (barbecue).
