Buenos Aires is known as the Paris of the South, not only due to its French-style architecture, but also because there’s romance in the air here. Passion runs fast through the veins of Porteños, so it is a perfect place to share a night with your significant other in one of the many luxurious hotels the city has to offer – bookable on Culture Trip.

Buenos Aires stands out among the cities of Latin America as a worldlier, more sophisticated port, with late-night tango bars, dramatic history and a sultry al fresco dining scene. Here, you can get a hulking, parrilla-sizzled steak and a great bottle of red for a steal, then wander the leafy streets watching stylish locals promenade, grabbing a world-class gelato or stepping into a palatial art gallery. Put yourself in the thick of it with these seductive stays.

Recoleta is a prime central point between the best dining and cultural districts in the city, with great sights of its own including the carved angels and saints of Recoleta Cemetery and the National Museum of Fine Arts. This outpost of stylish Spanish hotel brand Meliá fits in with the creamy, balconied mansion blocks all around it, tempting comfort-seeking couples with its traditional cream-and-gold rooms and outdoor hydromassage tub.

Also in well-heeled Recoleta, the Buenos Aires Four Seasons is as palatial as the price tag suggests, with the grandest outdoor swimming pool in the district. Laze out in the South American sun or swim a few laps before sightseeing. Later, settle into rooms fit for royals with heavy embroidered rugs, chandeliers and sculptural free-standing bathtubs. Stay on a Sunday to catch the firepit asado – a long, boozy barbecue in lieu of brunch.

Another Recoleta pad that’s well placed for elegant fashion boutiques and courtyard cafes, Algodon is a favorite with Instagrammers for its swish rooftop bar and plunge pool. Spacious suites decorated in coffee and cream are a lovely spot to kick off your shoes after a day of sightseeing, with generous living areas and sofas you’ll sink into. Meanwhile, the dark-lacquered wine bar downstairs is well worth a visit to taste the best Argentinian wines from Mendoza and La Rioja.

In case the glittering marquee, suited doormen and fluttering international flags don’t tip you off, this is one of the most lauded stays in Buenos Aires. Inside, you’ll find palatial styling to suit contemporary tastes. Think Louis-XV-inspired furniture and burnished gold bathroom fittings with fresh-cut flowers and tasteful lamps. A jet set crowd of moneyed regulars keeps coming back for the members’ club vibes, world-class spa and cool sushi bar.

This relaxed Recoleta base has a rooftop pool for those sweltering summer days, and a switched-on front-desk team ready to help you 24/7 with tours, taxis and tips. Rooms are fairly pared back in style and decorated in shades of mushroom, biscuit and taupe, but the location is spot-on for jaunts into nightlife-packed Palermo or hipster San Telmo. The morning spread is generous and filling, with à la carte options as well as a buffet.
