The garden, the details of interior design and the pool awarded Home Buenos Aires as the best boutique hotel in the region.
When in 2000 Patricia O’Shea and Tom Rixton decided to move from Dublin to Buenos Aires they looked for a property to build a hotel. They wanted to invite their European friends to the wedding, and to host them “in a really cool place”, as they define. Two years later, in an old furniture factory on Honduras Street, they built Home Buenos Aires. With 20 rooms, all different from each other, a dream garden, pool and special interior details, today the hotel became the Best Boutique Hotel in Latin America 2017, according to World Boutique Hotels Awards.
Six or seven years ago, wall papers did not have the “deco” acceptance they count on now. But they were the fetish of Patricia and Tom, who brought them especially from London. They became one of the reasons why the organization rewarded the hotel: “The collection of original wallpaper that the owners treasure, some as old as from 1889”. And they add: “The vegetable sanctuary next to the pool, Mulata: the hotel’s cat, and the effort to transport guests to live an experience that transmits the history and culture of its location, with its own style, were also evaluated satisfactorily “.
During 2017, the Home was also recognized among the 25 Best Hotels of South America in the Travelers Choice Awards 2017, of the magazine Condé Nast Traveler, in which it obtained the position no. 8, the highest among hotels in Argentina. In addition, they won the Best New Hotel Design Awards from Wallpaper Magazine 2006, Condé Nast Gold List 2015, and Best Boutique Hotel Argentina – Luxury Travel Awards 2014.
