Housed in the famed Edificio Mihanovic building on the stylish Calle Arroyo, Casa Lucía was created as a love letter to Argentina. When it opens in January 2024 it will be the first property beyond Spain for Único Hotels which has five-star properties in Madrid, Barcelona, Mallorca and Costa Brava. With 142 exquisite rooms, Argentine dining and nightlife, and a luxurious spa in the heart of Buenos Aires, Casa Lucia is ready for its South American debut.
“I have always been in awe of Argentina because it’s a country that has everything: mountains, oceans, deserts, and ice, and because it’s the beloved home of much of my family”, explains Pau Guardans, CEO of Único Hotels. “Between the storied Edificio Mihanovic that will house Casa Lucía and its location on the elegant Arroyo Street, this was an unmissable opportunity for Unico Hotels to expand beyond Spain”.

Radiating Argentina’s warmth, the team at Casa Lucía aims to offer exceptionally personalized service, introducing guests to the city’s best under-the-radar experiences and destinations, as well as insight into Buenos Aires’ storied past and present.
