With the peso drop­ping 50% against the dol­lar, Ar­gentina is afford­able again, in­clud­ing char­ac­ter­ful ho­tels in Men­doza, Patag­o­nia, Buenos Aires and other hotspots, writes Sor­rel Mose­ley-Wil­liams

This 1970s con­crete be­he­moth near Con­greso (the par­lia­ment build­ing) was used by po­lit­i­cal heavy­weights – un­til the 2001 eco­nomic cri­sis, when man­age­ment shut the place down and fired all the staff overnight. Eigh­teen months later, 35 for­mer em­ploy­ees took it over and slowly brought it back to life. Its lo­ca­tion is sec­ond to none, rooms are a mish­mash of do­nated and sec­ond-hand stuff, and the price is un­beat­able. Its Utopia cafe is a hub for po­lit­i­cal ac­tivists and does great me­di­aluna pas­tries.
