Come be the Protagonist of this Single Moment
Through a partnership between the filmmaker and the hotel chain, the Be Jardín Escondido by Coppola was launched as an exclusive hotel, offering unique experiences and services for travelers.
Five time Academy Award winner Francis Ford Coppola resided at this property while filming his movie Tetro, released in 2009. The filmmaker was enchanted by the house, the neighborhood and Buenos Aires and decided to share this unique experience with travelers from around the words. Be Jardín Escondido by Coppola offers guest a stylish and inviting retreat in the heart of one of Buenos Aires’s most desirable neighborhoods.
Unique and with personality
The property features seven unique suites, many of which are named after Francis and his family. Each suite is designed to offer comfort in a stylish setting.
Just one example: Francis Suite
This apartment’s called Francis Ford Coppola as it was the suite where the filmmaker slept while he lived in Palermo. The closet has a chest where Francis kept the filming equipment.
The filmmaker lived in Buenos Aires for two years, while recording Tetro, which was released in 2009. Francis Ford Coppola received several Oscar nominations and won the award five times.
“”Excellence in hospitality.”
Nestled in the heart of Buenos Aires’ most elegant residential neighbourhood, Recoleta, Algodón Mansion is a luxury boutique hotel standing in a lovingly restored château design building dating from 1912.
Algodon Mansion is just a short stroll away from many of the city’s most important sights and attractions, including the Recoleta Cemetery and the Coliseo Theatre, while the tree lined avenues of Recoleta are home to many fashionable boutiques, restaurants, cafés and the gorgeous Belle Époque architecture that has earned the city the title of “The Paris of South America”.
The Algodón Club & Wine Bar is the hotel’s own gourmet restaurant, where the chef and his team create delicious menus accompanied by an exclusive Argentinian wine list. Algodón Mansion also has a rooftop pool, and guests can take advantage of the hotel’s Spa centre, featuring steam, sauna, and massage rooms, where an extensive range of treatments are offered.
Algodón Mansion is an all-suites property, and these spacious suites have been designed to meet the highest standards for service, technology, comfort and sophisticated aesthetic appeal.

The sumptuous marble bathrooms feature luxurious robes and L’Occitane bath and body products. Extra beds or baby cots may be added to some rooms on request.
“You actually feel Argentina here!”
Teaming with sophisticated energy and creative vitality, this up and coming neighborhood is called Palermo Hollywood because a number of producers are in the area between Córdoba, Santa Fe, Dorrego and Juan B. Justo Avenues in Palermo Viejo. Palermo is in the northeast of Buenos Aires with Belgrano to the north, Almagro and Recoleta to the south, Villa Crespo and Colegiales to the west and the Río de la Plata river to the east.
Highlights of the area include the National Museum of Decorative Arts, Latin American Art Museum of Buenos Aires, Palermo Racetrack, Argentine Polo Field, Palermo Woods, Buenos Aires Botanical Garden, and the Buenos Aires Zoo.
Activities include all the area has to offer as well as a swimming pool, spa with a sauna, Jacuzzi and massage treatments.
Located in the historic center of Manaus, just a few steps from the Amazon Theater, the Hotel counts on 30 exclusive apartments—all facing an indoor garden and a natural stone pool.
The façade, reception and restaurant preserve the design of a restored historic mansion that dates back to the golden rubber age.
The spacious rooms have a modern and sophisticated design, and include a bathtub*, balcony, special linen, convenient amenities and a whole infrastructure of equipment and services offered by the most premium hotels.
The Fitz Carraldo Bistro offers a contemporaneous menu, blending international classic dishes with the exotic Amazonian culinary.
They also count on a fully equipped gym room and a overlooking the hidden garden, a real gem in the heart of Manaus.
The Hotel offers five Standard Apartments, twenty Superior Apartments and five Premium Apartments—all of which facing the indoor garden and the natural stone pool.
Fitz Carroldo Bistro opens every day during breakfast, lunch and dinner times, offering an informal environment and contemporary culinary, which blends international classics with exotic Amazonian ingredients.
The bar across the pool offers special caipirinhas, selected wines and appetizers to order at any time.
Though it’s certainly off the beaten path compared to Copacabana and Ipanema, the neighborhood of Santa Teresa — once quaint and bohemian, now rapidly becoming the bairro of choice for chic travelers — isn’t exactly a secret anymore. But a few quiet street corners, clattering streetcars and tree-shaded hideaways still preserve some of Santa Teresa’s romantic magic. Mama Ruisa, a seven-room boutique hotel housed in an old-fashioned mansion, is one of these time capsules.
The elegant century-old house has old bones that are evident throughout, from the soaring ceilings and generously sized guest rooms to a curving wooden staircase and an airy front porch that’s just screaming out for you to kick back on a rocking chair with a book and a glass of lemonade. As wholesome as that sounds, Mama Ruisa doesn’t feel like a rambling country estate: the place has an urban edge, too, carefully cultivated by its French-Brazilian owner.
The mansion’s original decorations have been stripped down, the oil paintings replaced with drawings by Jean Cocteau, the ornate lacquered furniture replaced by simple wooden coffee tables, canopied beds kicked out in favor of a minimalist look with crisp white linens and boldly printed fabrics. The more timeless elements of the original design — like the hardwood floors and floor-to-ceiling doors opening onto private balconies — remain in the themed suites, each of which takes inspiration from a Francophile hero (or heroine) like Josephine Baker or Colette.
The grand, impossibly sleek living room — open to the ocean breeze, of course, by way of ceiling-high French doors — is almost as good-looking as the mansion’s lush swimming pool, shaded by a fringe of palm trees. The million-dollar view, though, is from Mama Ruisa’s main terrace. Thanks to the hotel’s hilltop position, guests can take in the sweeping vista over the Guanabara bay — and consider the masses crowding the beaches below — while feasting on tropical fruits for breakfast and feeling generally superior.

This is a beautiful 7 room old family home that has been lightly converted into a small hotel. The area of Santa Teresa is quiet, largely residential, and an interesting neighbourhood to explore.
“To stay at Mama Ruisa Hotel is to let yourself be carried away by the air of bossa nova to discover the charm and mystery of Rio.”
