Notes on the Geography of Argentina: Avenida de Mayo: Photo 25

world pictures Argentina: Avenida de Mayo

We haven't seen anything modern except for the towers at Puerto Madero, but here's an exception. It's the City Hotel, opened in 1931 by a Scotsman resident in Buenos Aires, David Hogg.

It's been sold more than once, and has operated since 2001 as an NH hotel, but go back to the South America Handbook for 1949. There, the City is described as "the largest and most modern hotel in South America... [with] 500 rooms, each with private bath, filtered ice water; all public rooms air-conditioned." The best bit: "The only English hotel in Buenos Aires." Some Scotsman.
