‘The idea of creating a Hotel came up during a pleasure trip to Morocco each one of us did on our own, in 1989. We bumped into one another in a disgusting dirty ugly cheap hotel「ボキータ・ピンターダ・ポップ・ホテル」の始まりはハイケとゲプハルトの2人の運命的な出会いにまで遡る。1989年、2人はそれぞれモロッコへ旅をし、偶然同じ薄汚い安ホテルへと泊まる。そしてロビーで何とお互いが同じ本、アルゼンチン人作家マヌエル・プイグの「赤い唇」を読んでいた事に気付き、それがきっかけで2人は友達同士となり、やがて結ばれ、さらには彼らのような“情熱的な”旅行者の為の場所を作るという計画へと発展していくこととなる。ちなみに現在夫婦である2人は、共にアルゼンチン在住のドイツ人である。

— we suffered in the lobby as we both read the same book: Boquitas Pintadas (Little Painted Lips) by Manuel Puig. We started talking and that meeting evolved into a friendship, a romantic relationship, and the project of making a nice place for guests like us, passionate travellers,’ Heike Thelen tells the story of Boquitas Pintadas-Pop Hotel and her first encounter with her partner in life and in business, Gebhard Thepas, both of them Germans who have settled in Buenos Aires.

This very special hotel that was born in such a magical and serendipitous situation is located in the neighbourhood of Montserrat and has functioned since 2000 in a refurbished old house. Its interior decoration is cheerful: the idea was that guests should feel as if they were at home, but find kitsch design details, as well as furniture and objects that were popular in the 50s, the 60s and the 70s. According to Heike, their inspiration for the interior decoration also comes from the novels of the Argentinean writer they both love.

The hotel has several virtues: very personalized service, private tours around the city in German, English or Portuguese; an opulent breakfast — a mixture of German, British and American style — served from 8am to 4pm, double rooms with wi-fi, cable TV, fireplace, air conditioning, 3 terraces with a small swimming-pool as well as musical and art events.
From the moment it opened its doors onwards, important figures of the international electronic music world have stayed at the Pop Hotel: Wunder, dj Hell, dj Michael Mayer, dj Tobias Thomas, dj Erick D Clark, Barbara Morgenstern, among others.

The Pop Hotel offers travellers the opportunity to experience Buenos Aires from the point of view of two travellers who decided to settle in this city the moment they arrived here.
