One of Argentina’s most fascinating cities, Córdoba brims with Jesuit history, lively nightlife – and locals never happier than when ordering a fernet con coca (amaro liqueur with coke) – and epic surrounding landscapes, stretching from pampas grasslands to the Sierras de Córdoba foothills. From boutique hotels and B&Bs to budget finds and luxury lodges, there’s no shortage of places to stays in Argentina’s second city and its nearby surroundings…

1. Caseros 248 Hotel

The attractive modern building has a northern European look about it, though entering Caseros 248’s lobby is like stepping on to a Mad Men set complete with groovy furniture. More subdued, the rooms are ample, some equipped with whirlpool tubs. With an ideal city centre location, walk to some of Córdoba’s many landmarks as well as the historical neighbourhood.

2. NH Cordoba Panorama

A short walk from Centro and the hip Barrio Güemes, and extremely near to El Papagayo, one of the city’s finest restaurants, NH is located in pole positions. Stylish rooms with broad windows offer city vistas, and suites are generously large and come with a pod coffee machine. Stop by the rooftop terrace and pool for panoramic views of the distant mountains.

3. Estancia El Colibri

A beautiful Spanish-style estancia, El Colibri sits at the foot of the Sierras de Córdoba (an hour outside the city) and offers a wealth of outdoor activities for the whole family. Suites are exquisitely decorated, and house at least one fireplace. Food and wine are top-notch; the hotel’s pool, spa and massage services further enhancing the overall relaxing ambience. Get active with horse riding, polo lessons and mountain biking. Groups of up to 12 should book La Maison, the main residence.

5. Windsor Hotel and Tower

Located opposite the 200-year-old church near the Cabildo and Jesuit Block, the Windsor is perfectly positioned for exploring the historical city centre. Start your day with breakfast in bed and a whirlpool bath before discovering Córdoba city. The in-house Sibaris restaurant stands out for its grilled meats – the sweetbreads and entrecôte steak are musts – and fresh pastas, along with an excellent list of Argentine wines. The elegant lobby bar fashions a great drink but the terrace bar is best for a sundowner and a dip.

6. NH Urbano

Sitting alongside the Río Cañada embankment, NH is conveniently close to the Jesuit Block and other historical sights in the city centre, plus the large Patio Olmos shopping mall just a block away. Many snug rooms have tree-lined riverside views. The rooftop terrace is the place to observe the distant Andes and enjoy the refreshing plunge pool. Urbano’s restaurant serves throughout the day, but for a tasty treat, book a table at Nakama Ramen Corner across the river.

7. Y111

Just off the city centre, Y111 is within walking distance of Plaza España and Parque Sarmiento. Sprouting from above the façade of an early 20th-century mansion, the Y111 is otherwise very modern, with clean lines in rooms, decorated in cool earth tones. Pull up a seat at the 1906 Lounge Bar for a well-mixed cocktail, or visit the terrace for the plunge pool and fabulous city views.

8. Sheraton Córdoba Hotel

A stone’s throw from Plaza Colón, and a 20-minute walk from the historic centre, the cylindrical Sheraton towers above its surroundings, guaranteeing natural sunlight in generously sized rooms and wide city vistas. Feeling rested on your pillowtop mattress? Linger for longer and order in 24-hour room service. Dip into the spacious swimming pool then relax on the sun deck.

9. Sacha Mistol Art Hotel

Boutique Hotel

This early 20th-century residence was renovated to create an airy, sunlit and tranquil hotel flourishing with artistic licence. Each room and suite has an individual art identity, employing murals, hanging paintings or wallpaper. Furniture throughout is modern and comfortable while polished wood floors are a treat for your feet. Airy rooms are equipped with a Nespresso machine, some including a living room. Sacha Mistol also hosts art shows on weekends, a great way to meet local artists.
