You are invited to soak up the mysterious charm of a beautiful South American city full of culture and art.

Its streets are a poem about tango that is always accompanied by the best wine. Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina, is known for its vibrant architecture with beautiful nuances done in the European style, various cuts of the finest meats, theaters, and to top it all off, a fantastic “fútbol” culture. In this beautiful city, it’s a five-star experience across the board: exclusive hotels, internationally renowned restaurants, luxurious spas, championships golf courses, romantic evenings accompanied by tango, and much more.

Roman Ajzen, a lawyer with the international law firm Davis Polk, knows where to head when he’s doing business in South America – from the restaurants to museums, this New York City resident with Mexico City origins doesn’t bother with anything but five-star luxury, a trait easily secured in the city.

If your travel plans include Buenos Aires, take the time to learn a little about this fascinating city and its charming culture. GETTING THERE When you’re heading into Buenos Aires, especially if you’re coming in from anyone other than South America, it’s going to be a long flight.

To remain relaxed while maximizing time efficiency, a comfortable bed is a must-have – as is any pre-flight lounge service. “Only one free drink [at the pre-flight lounge] is ridiculous when you pay $9,000 for a first-class ticket,” Ajzen says. So don’t bother with anything other than a world-renowned airline, like LAN.

“I like to have a good selection of movies; LAN has a very good system, in addition to great service. They provide you with headphones, and they serve you well; the food is very good and includes local wines, lamb and salmon.”

Once you arrive, you’ll be flying into Ezeiza International Airport of Buenos Aires, the city’s main airport located approximately 45 minutes from downtown. Buenos Aires also has a domestic airport, called Aeroparque, which is located 15 minutes from the city’s center and is highly useful if you wish to visit Iguazu Falls or other popular destinations in the country, such as Mendoza.

Taxis are the suggested mode of transportation in Buenos Aires, and are easy to recognize because they are universally black with yellow roofs. Unless you are carrying luggage, don’t both about providing a tip.

EXPLORE
Buenos Aires offers its visitors the opportunity to enjoy its sophisticated elegance and unique style, which are all reflected throughout every corner of its gorgeous neighborhoods.

One recommendation is the neighborhood of Palermo, an area full of art and intellectuals. In this neighborhood, visitors instantly become acquainted with Palermo SOHO, a delightful destination featuring the most exclusive designs in clothing and decor. In addition, Palermo Hollywood is well known as the gastronomic center of the city, where you’ll find delicious and unique restaurants run by prestigious chefs.

THE STAY

There aren’t many better options in Buenos Aires than the Palacio Duhau – Park Hyatt Buenos Aires. Located in Recoleta, a neighborhood Ajzen hails as the “finest” in its city,
Duhau – Park Hyatt Buenos Aires includes essentials like comforting amenities and its central location make this a destination haven for business elite. “This incredible hotel is quite possibly the best that I have visited in all my travels. It is close to the Museo de Arte Latinoamericano de Buenos Aires, the Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, as well as the Teatro Colón, and combines the best architectural style with very innovative design,” says Ajzen.

The Palacio Duhau – Park Hyatt Buenos Aires also offers three signature dining experiences, as well as two lounges. The Duhau Restaurant and Vinoteca serves typical Argentinean cuisine with a sophisticated twist, surprising even locals who wander into its expansive setting.

THE CUISINE

In Buenos Aires, the food is very traditional. Ajzen recommends two restaurants: La Cabrera, a very authentic steakhouse; and Piegari, which has a very unique Italian style and offers the highest quality meals. “In Buenos Aires,” Ajzen says, “meat dishes, Italian food and French cuisine are all specialties.

The ample variety of a more international city is difficult to find here; however, prices are extremely reasonable considering the quality.” Buenos Aires that combines European elegance with modern technology – a city where you can find innumerable hotels and individuals with sophisticated style, that always adjust to suit your needs and tastes.
