The main airport in Buenos Aires is Ezeiza International Airport (EZE), Argentina. Below I outline the very best Priority Pass and non-Priority Pass airline lounges at Buenos Aires is Ezeiza International Airport (EZE).
While Buenos Aires Ezeiza International Airport isn’t the best airport in the world. You don’t have Singapore Changi airport lounges, rooftop pool or its butterfly garden, with orchids and a koi pond, it will be your main start and endpoint (if you are flying) in and out of Buenos Aires.
Most of the best-loved tourist attractions in Buenos Aires, the birthplace of tango, can be found between the Monserrat and San Telmo neighbourhoods. Avenida de Mayo is one of the city’s most prominent areas, with the Casa Rosada and the Palace of Congress sitting opposite to one another, and flanked by other notable architectural works, such as the House of Culture, the Barolo Palace and the oldest café in the city: Café Tortoni.

1. Star Alliance Lounge in Terminal B
The Star Alliance Lounge in Terminal B, Airside airport lounge is the airport lounge at Buenos Aires Ezeiza EZE Airport with the best style. The VIP lounge (reviewed in position 3) is just a room with a bunch of chairs in it, but this AA lounge is actually really nice looking and can be accessed with your Priority Pass. This is definitely your best lounge choice in Buenos Aires Ezeiza EZE Airport.
The seats are stylish, with some leather lounger style seats with fluffy cow or sheep hides on them, plus there are stylish armchairs and little round bucket style seats. This means the look feels more like a boutique hotel than an airport lounge.
Lots of wooden separators put the lounge into sections and to one side, there is a floor-to-ceiling window with net curtains. The lounge seems to be superbly clean and it smells good so they must use room fragrances in this lounge, which is a nice touch.
The buffet here is a large salad bar with loads of choice, plus you have cold cuts, cheeses breads and crackers. There is a coffee machine, canned soft drinks plus premium spirits, local wines, champagne, and bottled beers.
2. American Airlines Admirals Club in Terminal B, Airside
This American Airlines Admirals Club in Terminal B is the second-best airport lounge at Buenos Aires Ezeiza EZE Airport.
The lounge has lots of whites and pines, and floor to ceiling windows looking out to the terminal. The bathrooms are stylish and the lounge also has showers. The buffet is excellent compared to other American Airlines lounges, with preprepared egg salad, veggies, mash potato, pasta, cold cuts, fresh olives, cheeses preprepared sandwiches and alcohol.
There is a coffee machine, canned soft drinks plus premium spirits, local wines, champagne, and bottled beers.
American has a Dallas, a New York, and two Miami flights leaving from Buenos Aires Ezeiza EZE Airport and at these times it can be busy. This lounge also services Iberia flights but Iberia passengers are likely to use the lounge at different times.
While the Star Alliance and American lounges are both very good, the Star Alliance lounge is best because it tends to be less busy.
3. Aeropuertos VIP Club Lounge in Terminal A, Landside
Aeropuertos VIP Club Lounge in Terminal A is not a very exciting airport lounge. The look is basic with black leather sofas on a pinewood floor. It has not been styled in any way. It is pretty small with large windows that face the runway. This is great for aviation geeks as it gives you a great view of the planes.
The food selection is poor with a very small selection of pastries and some sandwiches and yoghurts in the fridge. The sandwiches are sealed in plastic and look like cheap supermarket sandwiches. They are not your delicious Pret a Manger or Starbucks type sandwich, they are basic!
There is a tea and coffee machine and there are soft drinks in the fridge with white, red and sparkling wine and friendly staff, but this is not a lounge to go to on an empty stomach and expecting dinner. It’s only useful to have a quick drink, a small snack and to watch the planes.
Paid entrance is possible using cash to get into this lounge, but this lounge probably isn’t worth paying for.
