cE Design Hotel

1695 Marcelo T. de Alvear
Buenos Aires , Argentina
54 11 5237-3100

With its oversize saffron-colored lobby chairs, all-white rooms, square white buffet trays, and penchant for clean, futuristic lines, the 28-room cE feels like an iPod’s giant offspring. Architect Ernesto Goransky imbued the two-year-old Recoleta hotel with an openness that’s visible everywhere, from the guest rooms’ floor-to-ceiling windows facing Plaza Rodríguez Peña and the impressive mansard-roofed Palacio Sarmiento—the home of the national education ministry—to the metal grill floor in the basement bar, below which one can see the building’s water tanks.

Insider Tip: The hotel offers breakfast 24 hours a day.

Room to Book: The 600-square-foot, front-facing Plaza Suites have the best views, but make sure to get a high floor to avoid being woken by city buses roaring below.
