Fastidiously neat Legado Mítico enjoys the best of both worlds: Superbly located at the heart of Palermo Viejo, Buenos Aires' food-and-fashion quarter, it sits on a quiet block lined with jacaranda and rosewood trees. Here, hotelier Javier Figueroa has created a hotel firmly rooted in Argentine culture. Each of the 11 rooms evokes a cultural figure, ranging from Jorge Luis Borges and Che Guevara to Eva Perón. The decor varies subtly from one guest room to the next, with rustic wood and rough-hewn stone, for example, in El Gaucho (inspired by fictional cowherd Martín Fierro) and academic and feminine touches in La Mecenas (evoking woman of letters Victoria Ocampo). Books, photos, and films relating to each personality are displayed in a sitting room, which opens onto a poplar-lined patio. There is no real restaurant, but the agreeable staff will happily prepare sandwiches and other simple meals and serve food ordered from local eateries.

When to go: Spring blossoms bring Palermo's tree-lined streets to life in September and October.
Which room to book: La Primera Dama, for its photographic time line of Eva Perón's life.
