Located in the heart of Buenos Aires, the Sofitel Arroyo is known as one of the most prestigious 5 star luxury hotels in Argentina. The first of its kind, it was opened in 2002, and quickly became one of the leading hotels of the world (LHW) association.

Sofitel Arroyo is located in the new art district of Buenos Aries. It was designed by international designer, Pierre-Yves Rochon who created a beautiful luxurious atmosphere designed around a 1920s boutique, yet modern, theme.

With a wide range of services on offer, it is a hotel of elegance where it’s customers can enjoy ambience and relaxation in the heated indoor pool, work out in the fully equipped gymnasium and visit the modern jewellery boutique.

The wonderful concierges know the best things to see and do in Buenos Aires and offer wonderful excursions and sightseeing activities.

First impressions really do matter and as I arrived at the Sofitel Arroyo, my first thought was how friendly and helpful the staff were. My bags were taken care of right away and I was greeted in the foyer with first class service. I later indulged in the fine dining experience of Le Sud, a beautiful French themed restaurant that had a range of delicious delicacies (the lamb and risotto was to die for, and the desert selection was too good to refuse!)

Le Sud restaurant is internationally known to be one of the finest dining restaurants in Buenos Aries. With a wide array of meals on offer, its no wonder my taste buds couldn’t get enough of the beautiful lunch that was served.

Once my hunger was relieved, I was shown to my room, which was modern and elegant. The rooms were very clean and tidy and that little extra touch of service that made me feel extremely welcome and excited for my stay. Fresh flowers in the bathroom, bottled water, fruits and chocolates. It was exactly the relaxation I needed to indulge in. The rooms offer large open layouts, whilst being extremely comfortable and cosy and were a perfect blend of modern and boutique.

With Buenos Aires as the Sofitel’s backdrop, guests can relax in a beautiful sitting space located near the reception dedicated to art and can relax and take in this famous city’s art, culture and history.

The first class service and personal attention given by staff in the hotel means the Sofitel Arroyo is the perfect escape for any type of traveller. Whether you’re enjoying a week away, exploring the city’s art, history and culture, in need of a wonderful break or just passing through, this hotel is the perfect fit. This stay was one of the best I’ve had. The lobby is absolutely breathtaking and the building tower itself is phenomenal to look at with its unique architecture and design.

Room rates generally start at around $200 US per room, per night. More information can be found online on Sofitel Arroyo’s website:…

My stay was beyond perfect, and for such a big beautiful city, Buenos Aires never felt more safe, exciting and fun – it’s a place I would love to return to one day, and when I come back, the Sofitel Arroyo will be the place I will visit again!
