Located in Retiro, within walking distance to major attractions, shopping, and dining
The CasaCalma Wellness Hotel is located in busy Retiro, an area in northern Microcentro, the core of downtown Buenos Aires. It's close to two of the main thoroughfares in town, including site-packed 9 de Julio and Leandro N. Alem Avenue, which offers easy access to some tourist attractions further south such as Boca and Caminito. There are several subway lines within walking distance from the hotel, and there are lots of restaurants and bars in the immediate neighborhood.
There's so much to see and do in Microcentro that some visitors never leave this area when visiting Buenos Aires. It is the core of downtown, with wonderful shopping areas like Calle Florida, tourist attractions such as Colon Theater and iconic Obelisk, entertainment venues, an interesting dining scene, and a wide array of hotels. It is also one of the few areas in Buenos Aires that is well connected via subway to the rest of the city.
This modern, eco-friendly boutique is the first carbon neutral hotel in Buenos Aires. It has 17 rooms and offers a cozy, wellness-focused experience to travelers, sporting a vertical garden, honesty bar with organic products, and tranquil lobby. Rooms are spacious and bright with plush bedding, iPod docks, and attractive vine-draped balconies. Luxurious bathrooms are the outstanding feature of the rooms, with two-person jet tubs, separate large walk-in showers, and in some, private saunas. Additional perks include Nespresso machines, free Wi-Fi, and a free organic buffet breakfast, but all of this eco-friendly luxury comes at a price.
