Many of the district’s historic mansions have been restored and converted into restaurants, bars, hotels and exhibition spaces.
Housed inside a restored Belle Epoque-style mansion, Hotel B, with its balconies, leafy patios and well-appointed rooms, is one of the most exclusive hotels in the country. Nonguests stop by for a drink or a meal.
Villa Barranco is another republican-era mansion from the 1920s that has been revitalized and converted into a nine-room hotel, with a rooftop terrace with ocean views.
