Here is our review of the EZE Centurion Lounge in Buenos Aires International Airport.
Centurion Lounge Buenos Aires location
The Buenos Aires Centurion Lounge is in International Terminal C, across from Gate 15. The lounge is located on level 2, which is accessible with both stairs and elevator.
This is an International area inside the secured airside area, so you can only access it after clearing Argentina Customs and Immigration.
You can find the Buenos Aires Centurion Lounge entrance across from the Aerolíneas Argentinas Lounge. You won’t miss the iconic Centurion Lounge branded logo next to the blue doors!
Buenos Aires Centurion Lounge Access and Check-in process
There are a few ways to access the American Express Salon Centurion in Buenos Aires Airport. The easiest way to get access to the Centurion Lounge is by presenting your American Express Platinum Card or the Business Platinum Card.

Just present your physical Amex Platinum card, as well as a Photo ID and a same-day boarding pass.
A Platinum Card holder may bring two additional guests at no extra charge. They will need to present a photo ID and a valid boarding pass to be admitted.
Keep in mind that new Centurion Lounge access rules mean that Amex Platinum Card holders may only access the lounge within 3 hours of their outbound flights. No longer can you sit here all day.
You also cannot access a lounge after your flight.
Note: This does not apply to people waiting for connecting flights.
Layout and Design of Buenos Aires Salon Centurion Lounge
Upon entering the main lounge, you soon realize that it is a series of rooms with see-through walls that each open to the next room.
The first room has a big screen TV, along with several cushiony sofa-style chairs for lounging. A wood-paneled bookcase, with the iconic old-style luggage decorations adorn the wall around the TV.
You’ll find a series of smaller rooms, with multiple arrangements of individual chairs and sofas, throughout the lounge.
There is a long communal table that multiple guests can use, as well as a smaller TV room towards the back of the lounge.
There is only one main food area, where you can find multiple options for snacking. You can also find several other food options next to the hot and cold beverages bar along the side wall of the lounge.
If you are traveling with small kids, there is a secluded area behind the snack table for families.
Workstations, including several big screen Apple computers and a printer, are in between the TV room and kids’ playroom area.
If you have visited any US Centurion Lounges, you’ll notice how open and spacious the Buenos Aires Centurion Lounge by comparison.
It will easily fit more than 130 guests at capacity.
During our visit around 5pm, there was plenty of seating everywhere.
Food and Drink at the Buenos Aires Salon Centurion
The American Express Centurion Lounge in Buenos Aires does not offer hot food. Unlike many Centurion Lounges, this lounge serves snacks only.
Good snacks, mind you, but just snacks.
Included are a selection of bread, crackers, simple cold sandwich options with meat and cheese slices, and several other finger foods.
Fresh fruit, pastries and sweets are next to the hot and cold beverage station. There are nuts, as well as drinkable yogurt, and cookies and muffins.
My favorite is the ice cream bar! It was such a treat to find ice cold treats next to the wine and champagne section!
Drinks at Amex Buenos Aires
The Centurion Lounge EZE offers two espresso machines with a selection coffee pods and a case of flavored and basic teas.
Cold beverages include beer, including local Quilmes beer, and sodas (Coca Cola products), juices, plus both sparkling and still bottled water.
There is an open bar for hard liquor, and you can choose several standard liquors like Bailey’s, Johnny Walker, Captain Morgan, Tanqueray, and more.
We found the wine selections to be quite delightful. Argentina is a land of great wine, and there are several wonderful options for Malbec and Pinot Noir.
There are also several Roses, along with Champagne and other options.

The bottom line
We really enjoyed the American Express Centurion Lounge in Buenos Aires. It might have just been the time we were flying (later afternoon on a Monday), but the lounge was comfortable and not too busy.
Many Amex lounges seem to be getting quite crowded lately, but we didn’t have an issue with that here.
The lack of hot food and showers were our only two issues here. But since we really didn’t need either of them anyway, it wasn’t a big deal for us today.
