The Gurda Tango Boutique Hotel and Winery is strategically located in the heart of San Telmo, one of Buenos Aires most emblematic neighborhoods, and provides guests with top class accommodations, just a short distance away from the center of the bustling capital and its most important tourist attractions. The Hotel was a traditional old San Telmo house which has been fully renovated and beautifully decorated. The Gurda Tango is on Defensa street, facing the charming Lezama Park.
The Hotel has only seven rooms, all of them thematically designed, and offers a classy décor, based on the geography of Argentina, which adds interest and character to each room.
