Located in the chic Palermo Soho neighborhood full of trendy bars, restaurants, clubs, entertainment venues, and art galleries
Part of the massive Palermo neighborhood in northeast Buenos Aires, Palermo Viejo, literally meaning "Old Palermo," is an attractive area with low historic buildings in the old Spanish style architecture. Palermo Viejo can be divided into two sections: Palermo Soho to the south and Palermo Hollywood to the north. On Palermo Viejo's southwestern edge, lively Palermo Soho is a small neighborhood that's very similar to New York City's SoHo, with cobblestone streets and tons of upscale boutiques. Most of the shops and restaurants are centered around Plazoleta Cortazar, which is a late-night gathering spot for those coming and going from the bars.
The Mine Hotel Boutique is an upscale 20-room hotel in the hip Buenos Aires neighborhood of Palermo Soho. Though set on a small piece of property, Mine uses its space phenomenally, and features a colorfully modern aesthetic. From the outside, the building has a futuristic vibe, and inside the lobby is a Zen-like open area -- its furnishings are distinct, colorful, and made from a number of natural materials. Each cozy guest room has a different color theme (lime greens, deep pinks, golden yellows) and style (Middle Eastern, Central American, Asian), making each uniquely fashionable. Rooms also come complete with balconies, DVD players, and flat-screen TVs. In addition to Mine Hotel Bistro, the hotel offers a small pool, on-site personal trainers, tango lessons, and a DVD library -- adding up to an amenity-stocked experience that draws a young and active crowd.
