Marcel de Buenos Aires

Calle Venezuela 2763 between Jujuy & Catamarca streets, Buenos Aires, 1211 Argentina (Show map)


"The Marcel" is not your usual place to stay. "The Marcel" is a 9-room fully sustainable boutique hotel in a recently renovated building from 1898. The building's architect, A. Christophersen, is beyond doubt one of Argentina's most famous & prestigious architects. The building, originally planned as a 'casa de renta' underwent a complete makeover between 2013 & 2016, but not without keeping the original architectural elements: high red-brick ceilings, gorgeous oak doors, a peaceful inner patio... Thanks to the preservation of the original high ceilings, it never gets too hot in summer. The bedside tables have been made of recycled wood, guests sleep in linen and bio-degradable cotton sheets, the mattresses are made of bamboo fabric, the patios have been paved with wooden blocks, - former streets blocks of the San Telmo neighbourhood, - LED-lighting and water saving tabs throughout the whole building. The Marcel serves organic and gluten free food ( for those who crave for gluten, we serve the 'normal' stuff too ). In Summer guests can relax alongside the rooftop swimming pool, enjoy a cocktail or one of the best coffees in town.... We care for the planet, so we care for you. The Marcel can easily be reached by public transport, as we are just 50 meters away from metro station Venezuela on line H. We are in the Balvanera-Boedo district, one of the oldest 'barrios' in Buenos Aires and birthplace to the tango.

About the innkeepers

We are Belgian, living in BA. We love it here ! We came for tango, fell in love with the city and decided to bring our experience of having run a small hotel in Brussels for over 20 years, to Argentina. We love people, that's why we do what we do ! Host guests from all corners of this planet. We love travelling and food, architecture, music, art....
