One can't be too surprised that the first soccer-inspired hotel in the world is soon to open it's doors in Buenos Aires. I mean this is arguably one of the cities with the most soccer fans in the world, so it makes sense, no? The Boca Hotel has been entirely conceived from the love of design, comfort and uhh.. Boca of course. Their internet site says "so much passion needed a rest" nicely said!
Founded in 1905, Boca Juniors is an Argentine sports club based in La Boca, a neighborhood of Buenos Aires. It is best known for its professional football team, which currently plays in the Primera División.
Boca Juniors is one of the most successful clubs in Argentina and in the world, having won 47 official titles at the national and international level.
The hotel required an investment of 15 million USD and is located in the heart of Buenos Aires, within walking distance from 9 de Julio Avenue and a short distance from Puerto Madero, San Telmo and La Boca neighborhoods.
The luxury hotel has 17 floors with 89 suites and 7,500 square meters of surface. Indoor and outdoor pools, a themed bar, gym, spa, restaurant, convention hall and its own theme channel.
