CasaSur boutique hotels in Palermo and Recoleta

To upgrade the guest’s experience in Buenos Aires and to reaffirm the fact that is considered one of the best lodging options in the city, CasaSur added a couple of complementary activities at their Art Recoleta, Palermo and Bellini hotels. 

The CasaSur Experiences propose to “be global, feel local”, discovering the most emblematic corners of Buenos Aires guided by a local historian, learning Tango with professional dancers and tasting different Argentinian wine labels specially selected by their own sommelier.

City tour seeing the highlights of Buenos Aires, every Saturday

A basic and not to be missed on Saturdays: a city tour where guests will be able to see and explore the highlights of the city of Buenos Aires and learn the secret stories of these porteño gems, guided by a local historian. On a van, the tour begins in Recoleta, where we drive a little around and continue through Retiro towards La Boca. In Caminito, there’s a half an hour stop to walk around with the guide, access one of the popular tenement houses, and then go back up to the van to see more of La Boca and San Telmo. Then, another half an hour stop at Plaza de Mayo, to walk around the square and learn about the history of the country, the buildings and the European imprint of the city. There’s a visit to the Cathedral and then, the return to the hotels is driving through the downtown, passing by the famous Obelisco, the Teatro Colón theatre and the 9 de Julio Avenue.

Also, every Wednesday evening customers may take a Tango lesson at CasaSur Recoleta, led by two professional dancers who will teach the basic steps of this popular dance and get participants carried away by such a dramatic and sensual rhythm.

Finally, on Thursday evenings CasaSur treats their guests with a wine tasting at the exclusive cellar in Recoleta, where they will have the chance to taste four labels of Argentinian wines specially selected by the in-house sommelier, and to learn about the history of their origin and vineyards.

Three cultural experiences from experts in hospitality. Your passengers will not only rest in the best accommodation, but also feel extra pampered!
