Located in Palermo Hollywood, a vibrant residential neighborhood popular with locals
Atempo Design Hotel is located in the upscale Palermo Hollywood neighborhood -- an area made famous by designers, artists, and restaurants. It is an ideal choice for visitors who wish to avoid a chain hotel atmosphere and the crowds found at more touristy locations. With a boutique style, the property feels more like a private home to some guests, and the leafy neighborhood is safe for walking. Trendy restaurants and bars are nearby, but the downtown area and tourist sights are not within walking distance.
Palermo is a massive neighborhood in the northeastern part of Buenos Aires that can be divided into various districts, including Palermo Hollywood to the north. Palermo Hollywood gets its name because of the many radio and television studios in the area. It features more old, Spanish-style architecture and low-rise buildings than other parts of the city. Today, Palermo Hollywood is known less for its tourist attractions and more for its various international wining and dining options and its vibrant nightlife scene.
As its name suggests, this boutique hotel strives to create a high-design ambience. The suites and lofts are sleek and spacious, with minimalist, natural wood furniture and abstract artwork throughout. Floor-to-ceiling windows lead out to private balconies (albeit unfurnished) and city views. Even the outdoor common spaces are chic, such as the sundeck with stylish lounge chairs and small outdoor pool. Trendy shops and restaurants are also within easy reach, as the hotel is set in the vibrant Palermo Viejo neighborhood.
