Here at Foto Ruta we always pride ourselves on offering our Foto Ruta participants the insider scoop on places to eat, drink and stay in Buenos Aires. One of the reasons we set up Foto Ruta was to get tourists to explore a bit of the tourist trail and see what Buenos Aires is really about (i.e. not just tango and steak). However, as long term expats here, with our own houses, we’re sometimes feel a bit out of the loop on whats hot in terms of hotels in BA. So we asked our friends at Buenos Aires 54 to fill us in. Here’s their top picks for boutique hotels in the city…
