Port city Rosario spawned Che Guevara and Lionel Messi, but its rebirth as a vibrant northern Argentine city is what attracts most visitors today. Behind the high rises, you’ll find some of the most special Art Nouveau buildings in the country, plus plenty of museums, large parks and a lovely waterfront. When it comes to accommodation, this collection of the best hotels in Rosario will allow you to stay in style.
Towards the southwest of the central grid near the resplendent Parque Independencia, one of prettiest city center parks in the country, the Carat offers one of the best apartment-hotel experiences in town. The 37 apartments are stylishly presented and oh-so sleek: the entry-level Junior Suites are still a substantial 420sqft (40sqm) and feature superbly appointed kitchens with breakfast bars. After that, it’s all up, up, up in quality, with the two-story loft apartments just sublime.
