A real find in BA’s trendy Palermo Soho, this small hotel with diminutive swimming pool on roof, reasonable rates (and rising as it becomes
more popular), welcoming staff and terrific in-house restaurant, Sipan, is a real find. Ask for room no. 14 with balcony overlooking the leafy street and a terrace through the trees where a would-be juggler practices with dedication. The best shops – arte etnico among them – are steps away. And one of BA’s hottest night spots, Casa Cruz, is just next door.
Even closer than CC is Sipan, a Peruvian fusion restaurant, that shares the hotel entrance. Have the wontons and octopus after one or more of their fabulous mixed drinks. If really hungry you can embarrass yourself with their Barco Sipan – a wooden carved and painted boat filled with fruits from the sea.
