Bourgeois and bohemian, rebel and conservative.…The various slogans of this chic little oasis are improbably taken from a book by the American political pundit David Brooks (Bobos in Paradise, about the emerging class of "bourgeois bohemians"). Even more improbably, the slogans almost make sense in context. Situated on a dappled tree-lined block in Palermo Viejo, the Bobo is both a hipster hangout and an urbane boutique hotel, as evidenced by its inviting lobby café restaurant (featuring an inspired Argentine-Mediterranean-Asian menu), with its sleek furnishings, grenadine-hued velvet curtains, pulsing electronica soundtrack, and black-uniformed staff. Housed in a 1920s mansion, the hotel's 15 airy rooms range in style from minimalist to Art Deco to "Argentinean" (a top-floor suite with a skylighted Jacuzzi), and many come equipped with their own private balconies.

From the readers of Condé Nast Traveler:
"This amazing boutique hotel" has perfect-scoring sleek interiors and a perfect-scoring location in Palermo, near the Botanical Garden. A renovation recently doubled the number of rooms; the original seven were based on themes such as Minimalism and Art Deco. The restaurant "serves amazing food," mixing Argentine, Mediterranean, and Asian flavors. Staff "are enthusiastic, friendly, and professional."

From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:
Behind a dust cloud of renovation that is quickly turning Palermo Soho into the city's coolest quarter, one 1920s European-style mansion has been reborn as the Bobo Hotel. Six of its seven seriously affordable rooms were inspired by twentieth-century movements (Art Deco, minimalism, pop, etc.)—some more successfully than others—but it's the seventh that's the real keeper. Done in the natural hues of the pampas, the top-floor Argentina is the sole suite, with a skylighted whirlpool tub and an enchanting balcony that evokes Left Bank luxury. Wireless Internet access is hotelwide; absent is a business center, although the young staff will gladly offer reception's setup should the need arise.—2005 Hot List
