Nobody knows the neighbourhood like a local they say, and when it comes to checking in to a hotel, you are more than often at a loss to know just where to go to get the best out of your short stay. With this in mind, Small Luxury Hotels of the World or SLH offer neighbourhood guides for just this purpose.
The SLH neighborhood guides encourage visitors to embrace local culture by exploring all aspects of local history. From art to architecture to local cuisine, they ensure that every experience offers a taste of every aspect of culture from dusk until dawn. For instance, when staying at CasaSur Art Hotel in Buenos Aires visiting the nearby Cementerio de la Recoleta, a burial ground for the rich and famous, including Evita Peron, is a MUST. Or when in Porto, Portugal guests should stop by the Livraria Lello & Irmao, one of the oldest bookstores in the country, a favorite of JK Rowling and inspiration for Harry Potter.
