In 1929, modernist architect Johannes Kronfuss designed a dramatic Art Deco edifice two blocks from the Casa Rosada, Argentina's presidential palace. Despite being declared a heritage building, Kronfuss's creation fell into ruin in the 1990s, along with much of the Montserrat district. Recently renovated as a 39-room hotel, the seven-story building has a graceful fluted stone exterior, while an accordion-gated elevator still clunks past landings lit by stained glass windows. Rooms range in size from the generous to the enormous; all have 13-foot ceilings, expansive iron-framed windows, and Art Deco-style furniture upholstered in iridescent sea green. Don't be afraid to ask for extras like babysitters, personal trainers, or masseurs—inexplicably, the youthful staff may forget to detail what's on offer. Guests may also customize the contents of their minibar or borrow a laptop.

When to go: Avoid only the sweltering summer months of January and February.
Which room to book: No. 48 for its view of the 1754 Basilica de San Francisco.
