Small and atmospheric boutique hotel encapsulating some of the most iconic elements of Argentine history and culture within a stylish and contemporary design.

For a sense of regional character and culture, it's hard to imagine a better choice than Legado Mítico, a very original boutique property in the leafy, upmarket district of Palermo. True to the 'mythical legacy' denoted by the hotel's name, the theme that runs through the design and ambience is one of an idealised Argentine past, replete with all its most celebrated icons.

Each of the 11 individually-styled rooms is inspired by a notable figure in the nation's history, from the 'First Lady' room with its presidential décor fit for Eva Perón to the 'Gaucho' room, whose furnishings evoke the rugged, rural life of Argentina's famous cowboys.

An atmospheric air also prevails in other areas of the hotel, such as the warm yet stately library and the open plan lounge. Décor is very attractive and contemporary throughout, with strong colours predominant – black, crimson, silver. However there's no hint of pretension, and there are many inviting settings for relaxation, including a lovely decked patio fringed with trees and a sundeck complete with rooftop Jacuzzi.

    CS, London
  • Very discreet and quiet. Comfortable room. Nice sitting areas. Friendly staff. The area of Palermo is great for bars and restaurants. A bit out of the centre of Buenos Aires,…

    SM, Marlborough

Our Expert's Opinion

An excellent boutique hotel in Buenos Aires’ Palermo neighborhood and one of my favorite offerings in the area. Both rooms and common areas feel more spacious than you’ll find in many ‘boutique’ properties, and it has a great location on a quiet street though just minutes’ walk from the bustling shops, cafes, and bars this region is known for. I’d recommend going for one category up from the lead-in room for a great experience, and I feel a stay here is ideal for a 2nd visit to the capital or if returning to the city at the end of your trip for a real change of scene from the center.
