Love Hotels aka Telos in Buenos Aires

I can't believe it was almost a year ago (where the hell does the time go?) since I wrote this post about Love Hotels aka Telos which is worth a look if you didn't see it. I think I was mildly amusing and creative back then - what the hell happened?

I was reminded of it today because I saw a car driving around pulling a trailer with a big advert for one of these 'pay by the hour' hotels. Only arg$40 pesos for a 2 hour shagfest! (less than u$d12)

Before I arrived here I'd only seen places like these on TV movies which were usually pretty grotty and associated with prostitution. Here however, it's commonplace as 'kids' often live at home until they're married or shacked up with their better half. This can mean a 30+ year old 'kid' living with the parents and dating a possible Mr/Mrs Right needs a bit of privacy. So off they toddle to the Telo (love hotel) for some nookie.

You have a variety of rooms classes/prices to choose from.

Although the front entrance is frequently shielded by trees for privacy, they are not the seedy equivalent of the establishments you've seen on TV. For the most part, they are clean and well maintained, although there is a tendancy for the decor to be 70's pink porn style from floor to door to wall to ceiling to the champagne - all pink? If you pay a little extra you can stay longer and get breakfast in bed - pink tea and toast anyone?

Check 'em out yourself and let the lovefest begin!

Ha! I'll take the Ejecutiva room with a spa in the Pink Hotel please . . only one small problem . . nobody to share it with. Now Chris Isaac's Blue Hotel is ringing in my ears only with a slight colour change! Actually, I think its a good idea, beats all that fumbling in the backs of cars or being moved on by the police for parking in inappropriate places!

And here I go, thinking you gonna say they are for the parents who need some privacy ;)

Those Hotels exist in Korea too. Just a bit different.
If you walk around there, most doors are open, a bunch of shoes in the hallway and a bunch of people snoring in the rooms.

And they have the real ones, never been in one though, I guess I missed something. Some must have some real good Love Extras in the rooms :D

When I first arrived in Lyon I was sleeping on the couch of my friends. When I met my girlfriend she was still living with her parents so we had nowhere to go. I would have killed to have someplace like that instead of coughing up €80 for a night in a room that turned out to have two single beds.

Crap Baino, now I can't get blue hotel out of my head.

Interesting...I never heard about these when I was there.

Oh...and here's your chance to really be on top...

You are about to be removed from my blog roll!!! It’s nothing personal…I’m restarting for 2009 this Thursday. Were you at the top of the list in 2008? If not, here’s your chance to be. A single comment gets you on my blog roll. Keep commenting and you’ll stay at the top. Hope to see you in 2009!

interesting - I haven't been back to Ireland since the late 90's but I guess I never thought of these love nests. Of course we have them in the states. This has me wondering - since Ireland has so many B&Bs (which are great) - do they get many one night stands going on in those? You get the impression everyone knows everyone but I'm sure that's not the case.

I'm with NicoleB, mom & pop should get to take nights off, too.

There's something about hotels. At least for me, anyway...

Love your new design... Simple, clean and plentiful at the same time.

Wished I had the courage to migrate my design to this one!

Get the same thing in Japan, but they do themed rooms too.

There wouldn't be a single toiletry item left once I checked out.

@Baino: Yes - lot more comfy than a car for sure - Blue Hotel - now there's a pun

@Nicole B: I figured the Asians would have an equivalent

@C'est Le Craic: 80 Euros - i hope you got a full Irish breaky with that

@VE: Yeah they're not that easy to spot unless you know what yer looking for

@Lisleman: Welcome! - I'm sure the B&B's get used for a bit o' nookie but only if you go well outside yer locale

@Megan: True - why should the kids have all the fun

@Peter: Thanks - I'm a bif fan of your blog too

@Thrifty:Themed rooms - there's a novelty idea - Disney meets love hotel

@Broke: Waste not want not!
