The idea of a theme hotel is normally cause for some skepticism. Which makes the success of Legado Mitico in Buenos Aires so much more impressive. Its stylish guest rooms and public spaces pay homage to Argentina’s history in a subtle, intelligent manner, and the result is a quirky, cool hotel with an added hook for well-read travelers — and those who’d like a warmer alternative to the city’s frostier minimalist boutiques.
Stepping into the urban townhouse, the polished wood floors, leather couches, and towering bookcases will make you feel like you’re in a cozy-chic library; appropriate, considering the hotel’s intellectual vibe. After all, the eleven individually themed guest rooms go beyond honoring the usual suspects like Eva Peron and Che Guevara — depending on your room, you’ll learn a thing or two about lesser-known legends like painter Benito Quinquela Martin, tango dancer Tita Merello, and millionaire art patron Victoria Ocampo. But you won’t be hit over the head with artifacts. The thematic decor is suggestive, not overt — think old tango posters, a vintage hatbox, an antique guitar — and is used to enhance the otherwise contemporary rooms filled with huge flat-screen TVs and luxe linens. ‘Lujo’ (luxury) rooms also feature jacuzzi tubs.
The petite, thoroughly sophisticated Legado Mitico is done up in classic hues of chocolate brown, cool gray, and deep red that matches the Malbec all of the guests are drinking by the fireplace or in the peaceful courtyard patio. The hotel operates on a small scale — there’s no spa or restaurant here — which is just as well, considering the boutique’s prime location in the heart of Palermo Viejo, the city’s most fashion-forward district.
Please note: Legado Mitico can only accommodate guests over the age of 12.
