Andi’s Pick: Hotel De Casco

Hotel De Casco: Buenos Aires, Argentina

First Impression

Located about thirty minutes from downtown Buenos Aires is the charming and exclusive suburb of San Isidro.  There you will find cobblestone streets lined with hundred year old homes and spacious public parks filled with Sunday markets.  It is the perfect place if you are looking to escape the chaos of the city.  My husband’s family lives in this barrio, thus staying at Hotel del Casco was a great home-base for us during our visit.  The property is a stunning 19th Century neoclassical mansion, once a former summer home of an aristocratic family, that has now been carefully renovated in respect to its original design and sophisticated elegance.

Location

The historic center of San Isidro is Plaza Mitre and Hotel del Casco is just a few steps away.  It is tucked away on a quiet, residential street with a grand Cathedral at its end.

The Room

This luxurious 20-room manor offers modern accommodation amidst colonialesque surroundings.  Each room is furnished with a mix of selected period pieces and contemporary accents.  You cannot help but fall instantly in love when you step inside.  We stayed in one of the suites, which was situated outside of the main house with its own private entrance, allowing for even more seclusion.  The high ceiling is decorated with an antique crystal chandelier and the walls with paintings and tapestries that illustrate Hotel del Casco’s history.  Expansive windows are adorned with flowing muslin and crisp, white Egyptian cotton linens cover the king sized bed.

The Bathroom

The spacious ensuite bathroom features both an antique bathtub, as well as a walk-in shower.  The beautifully restored traditional sinks are laden with the hotel’s toiletries and the tiled floor is heated for extra comfort.

The Extras

No matter what your reason is to visit Hotel del Casco, you will greatly appreciate the extras that elevate the property, such as the heated courtyard pool, the rejuvenating gym and spa, a delicious room service menu, and a free breakfast spread inside of a garden atrium.

    What a beauty…..I could really get used to not only staying there, but living there on a permanent basis! You can tell it was someone’s residence once upon a time. I love old houses like that!

      Isn’t it just amazing??? I want to return in the summer to be able to take advantage of the pool! Plus, I was horribly sick the entire time I was there, so I couldn’t fully appreciate my luxurious surroundings.

    Not only the hotel is beautiful, it’s location is also perfect. It can be a good choice for newly married couples. I also want to visit it but I wonder how expensive it is to stay in that hotel. 🙂
