The 19 guest rooms are tricked out with llama-wool throws and vintage wallpaper. Plus, double-paned windows block the buzz of the ever-lively Palermo Viejo district outside.

About this Hotel

Price From $125

'Hood Palermo Hollywood, so named for its abundance of TV studios. Heavier on the nightlife and restaurant options than Palermo Soho, the shopping district across the train tracks.

First Impression If only your agent could see you now. A U.K. record producer and an Argentine publicity director created Home after they got married in Buenos Aires several years ago and couldn't find a hotel they liked for their friends and family. They transformed this "chorizo house"—so-called because it curves around one side of a central courtyard the way a grilled chorizo sausage curves—with hip touches, such as poolside pod chairs, llama-wool throws, and vintage wallpaper (including an English 1960s flora-and-trellis pattern).

Rooms The overarching style is a cool, mid-century modern, with floral prints and Chilean wool to warm things up. All 19 rooms are appointed with things you didn't know you needed, such as a safe that can hold your laptop, speakers for your iPod, and double-paned glass to shut out the street noise.

Plus The pool, the sauna, and the spa treatments will help you recover from Palermo Hollywood's relentless nightlife.

Minus It's been discovered the world over: Book at least three months in advance.

Free Wi-Fi Yes, in all rooms and public areas.

Credit Cards Accepted AmEx, MC, Visa.

Details Doubles from $125, superior rooms from $175.
