Marcel De Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires, Argentina



In Argentina’s iconic Buenos Aires is this funky relaxed and fun place to stay. Upcycled decor in the rooms, beehives and lap pool on the terrace, tango classes and live jazz in the bar, organic food served in the inhouse restaurant, yoga in the ‘culture lounge’… all with a nod to style, inclusivity and making the most of your travel adventures.

The Location

This eclectic hotel with short term let apartments is in the heart of the San Cristobal neighbourhood; away from the tourist meccas of Recoleta and San Telmo, (which are still easily accessible on the cities metro – the nearest station, Venezuela, is just 100 metres away) this area offers the chance to experience a more authentic Buenos Aires.

  • seeing a different side of the Buenos Aires that many tourists don’t get to see – a more real one
  • the style of the house; exposed brick walls, huge windows flooding rooms with light and upcycled furniture
  • all things green from waste wood bathroom cabinets to support for local urban ecology projects!
  • being able to stay in one of the cool apartments – great if you’re staying a bit longer – but still having access to all things “Marcel”
  • in-house cultural to gastronomic diversity – from Belgian bike tours and Eco Collection ponchos to vegan treats
  • Marcel’s famous weekly ‘gnocci’ supper with a glass of the best Argentinian wine
  • Buenos Aires can get hot, so a soak in the lap pool or taking up one of the spa treatments on offer make a lovely alternative to pounding the streets


  • seven double rooms: with direct access to the patio on the ground floor or upstairs with a patio view; or pick one of two twin rooms.  All rooms are ensuite.
  • if you fancy a bit more personal space, then opt for one of two self-contained duplex flats or one single storey.  These are usually available only for period of a month or more – perfect for truly getting to grips with the Tango
  • from gluten free to vegan, homemade tarts, smoothies and honey, the fayre on offer caters for all (yummy) tastes
  • a slither of a rooftop pool for a quick refresh or a sun baked soak
  • Cafe Marcel offers superb coffee and space to hang out in the hotel
  • a ‘culture lounge’ where you can learn to dance, find a yoga class or join a talk

The Marcel is managed by the lovely Karin.  Belgium by birth, she is a citizen of the world, having studied in Washington and now full time in Buenos Aires – she’s a font of knowledge about everything funky in her city and the driver for The Marcel’s Belgium influences – even the name of the hotel, which originates from the name of type of T-shirt common in Belgium.  Who knew…  Passionate about food, she oversees the preparations inhouse and can send you off for to the best local restaurants too.
