About
No other part of Buenos Aires is as lively as the FAENA HOTEL BUENOS AIRES. That joie de vivre is everywhere in this incredible space, which joins the eclectic and vibrant Bohemian tribe local to Buenos Aires, with the most cosmopolitan visitors from all over the world. Like a living room in one of Argentina’s big estancias, the comfortable, relaxed atmosphere of The Library Lounge invites you to enjoy a special moment at any time of the day, from a frugal breakfast or traditional afternoon tea to the bubbling social scene of the Buenos Aires night – where you can hear the greatest exponents of Porteno music every evening.

Great drinks and even better people watching. Can spend all night here just looking at all the different people. Additionally, they have live entertainment most nights.

On a recent trip to Buenos Aires I had the pleasure of visiting The Library Lounge for the first time. The decor was elegant and the cocktails first rate. Our server "Maru" made some great drink recommendations and was professional and friendly without being pretentious....I look forward to returning to the Library Lounge on my next trip to Buenos Aires!More

We spent two days of our honeymoon at the best pool in Buenos Aires. Maru was our pool waitress and went above and beyond to make sure we had a good time. She even recommended restaurants and bars for us to visit and made reservations...for us! The hotel itself is very boogie (in the best of ways) and we had a wonderful breakfast in bed while we were there as well. The library bar is beautiful and the smell of cigars and Patchouly lingers throughout the entire lobby. Lastly, Tommy hooked it up in the Havano department. He was so kind and such a fun time. This hotel has so far been the best two days of our two week trip.More

It is not a place I would be used to but it was ok for one occasion ... it worth it. Our afternoon was sweet & salty, in both cases with excellent offer accompanied by the beverage of our choice. The staff is very polite...and take into account the most minute detail, the decoration of the place is not the most likly to me but the view of the pool adds a lot of light. The afternoon menu is undoubtedly the tea to share, it is not extremely expensive, but ... it is not to become customary. It was fine, but it did not dazzle me: I expected more from the decoration of the place.More

Great spot in the Faena. Ambiance perfect, decor very elegant and sophisticated. Staff well trained , very personable and professional. Live music both nights we stayed in hotel. Inside and outdoors around the pool has a great vibe. Food however could be improved , Shrimp...Causa awful . Tasted one mouthful and couldn't eat it , not sure if shrimp were off . Told waitress but still on bill. Empanadas were good. Cheese plate huge , way too big a platter . I felt awful wasting it . Suggest you cut back on the cheese and maybe add some good crackers and some fruit dried apricots or fresh grapes instead of just a pile of cheese . Chef should use his imagination and present a much nicer platter and visual. Didn't order anything else as not that impressed with the food . We did try the Patatas Bravas at the pool in day and those were good A lovely evening out but food options could be improved.More
