Room facilities include a home theatre with flatscreen TV, CD/DVD player, iPod dock, minibar, and bath amenities by Organ & Co. 24-hour room service.
Decorated in white and Gold, the Bistro offers European and Argentinian cuisine. Inspired by Buenos Aires' legendary cantinas, El Mercado offers authentic local cuisine in a warm, rustic atmosphere. Guests can unwind reading a book while sipping coffee, enjoy afternoon tea or a light lunch in the sultry Library lounge.There is also a cellar containing the largest collection of Argentinean wines. Breakfast is served at El Mercado.
