The Pulitzer is the only member of the Design Hotels family in Argentina. Found on a quintessentially Microcentro (affectionately known as little-Paris) corner of Maipú y Suipacha (handy for taxis to locate it) it is not far from the main 9 de Julio Avenue. In fact, it’s not at all far from many of the sights, with the Teatro Colón, the Obelisco de Buenos Aires and Casa Rosada within walking distance. If like us you’re true urban explorers, then the Pulitzer is a great base for you. While the hotel is open all year round, its facilities are seasonal – namely the rooftop pool and its associated bar, which we didn’t get to experience during our stay. Our room was on the bijou side of things, as you’d expect from a city centre hotel, or apartment – accented by splashes of blue soft-furnishings and a mood-lifting turquoise carpet. The common areas of the property are beautifully designed and the first floor bar is a nice place for a cocktail, but we feel the property is in need of a touch-up as it is, in part, looking a little tired. The staff, and we mean this in the singular, not plural, was very friendly, but terribly overstretched.
