Hotel in Buenos Aires

by cl3150

We're looking for a recommendation for a nice hotel in a convenient area. A few years ago we stayed at the Park Tower which was very nice, but it was about a four block walk to the area we would have preferred.

Hi cl,

For your next visit, do you have an area in mind? It would help us to narrow down suggestions for you. :)

Meantime, have a look at this link to a recent Travel Forum question on VT, for hotel suggestions in Buenos Aires:

http://forum.virtualtourist.com/discussion-542017-1-1-Travel-0-1541981-Buenos_Aires-discussion.html

Let us know if you have a particular area in mind. I'm sure others will have appropriate suggestions for you. Have a good trip!

Re: Hotel in Buenos Aires

Probably La Recoleta. It seems to be the best area for hotels. We will be arriving early in the morning on a flight from the US and leaving late on the 6th.

I stayed at the Howard Johnson Plaza at Calle Florida (Florida St) and was very happy with it! It's smack on the pedestrian mall. BUt like Alza suggested, it depends on what kinda area you are looking for? ;-)

Do check it out on my hotel accommodation tip for BA - sorry I've yet to post any pics :( But I'd go back there for a short stay. Have fun in BA!

For hotels in the Recoleta area which are 4 star hotels, then I would suggest Caesar Park, CasaSur, AyresdeRecoleta(4locations), BelAir, LoiSuites Recoleta, Melia Recoleta, Howard Johnson Boutique Hotel Recoleta, Art Hotel, Art Suites.
The Five Star Hotels would include Four Season, Park Hyatt, Alvear Palace and Algodon Mansion, Sofitel. All of these are more expensive that the Park Tower.
All hotels mentioned are in excellent locations within Recoleta and close to shopping, restaurants and sightseeing.
All are reviewed on Tripadvisor.

Re: Hotel in Buenos Aires

by cl3150

Thanks. I already looked at most of those you suggest. The five star hotels all seem to run around $500 a night, quite a lot of money. I was intrigued by the Caesar Park, but learned that the hotel does have any rooms with a king-size bed.,,either twins or a queen size, regardless of price. We're still reserved at the Park Tower, which is at the top of my price range. The location means an extra 4 blocks of walking, but the hotel itself is very nice.

Have you checked out the Howard Johnson Plaza on Florida St? I had a huge room with two queen sized beds! Very clean and modern, too! With a good enough breakfast!

Travel Tips for Buenos Aires

Iguazu

by augrad

My family went to Iguazu in June, 2007, and we planned everything ourselves. I never do the arranged "touristy" tours because you are so rushed and you miss out on the learning about the culture. You can take a bus from B.A. for about $15 per person (an overnight trip on a VERY nice luxury bus--just google it), or take a flight (Lan.com) for $250 (one and a half hours).
We stayed here http://www.orquideashotel.com/pop.html for $115 a night (2 bedroom cottage). The prices on the website are in Argentine pesos, so basically just divide by 3 to get US dollars.

BE SURE to eat at this restaurant if you go to Iguazu: http://www.eltioquerido.com/tioquerido_ofrec.htm
My family of 5 had 3 filet mignons (with baked potatoes and salad), 2 chicken plates, 4 beers, and 3 desserts. The total bill was $28! We left a very nice tip : ) It was the best steak I have EVER eaten. It is like fine dining, but you don't dress up. They also have a band that plays while you eat.
There is also a very good pizza place that is cheap in the middle of town.

Be sure to take the boat trip up to the falls!

You will love Iguazu.

PASCUAL CONTURSI - HE WAS THE FIRST

by RafaelTheSecond

He was the one who had written the first Tango song in 1917 when he gave to Carlos Gardel the precious theme of MI NOCHE TRISTE - MY SAD NIGHT. but before that in Montevideo, Uruguay, he had written some poems like DE VUELTA AL BULÍN - BACK HOME - which the pianist Jose Martinez made it a song, but the huge success and exactly when the Tango sang by a person was a famous event, it happened by the voice of Carlos Gardel... Contursi and Gardel were very good friends and we can say that Tango had a revolution because of this duo. Here you can read the lyric of this wonderful song:

MI NOCHE TRISTE

Percanta que me amuraste
en lo mejor de mi vida,
dejándome el alma herida
y espina en el corazón,
sabiendo que te quería,
que vos eras mi alegría
y mi sueño abrasador,
para mí ya no hay consuelo
y por eso me encurdelo
pa'olvidarme de tu amor.

Cuando voy a mi cotorro
y lo veo desarreglado,
todo triste, abandonado,
me dan ganas de llorar;
me detengo largo rato
campaneando tu retrato
pa poderme consolar.

Ya no hay en el bulín
aquellos lindos frasquitos
, arreglados con moñitos
todos del mismo color.
El espejo está empañado
y parece que ha llorado
por la ausencia de tu amor.

De noche, cuando rne acuesto
no puedo cerrar la puerta,
porque dejándola abierta
me hago ilusión que volvés.
Siempre llevo bizcochitos
pa tomar con matecitos
como si estuvieras vos,
y si vieras la catrera
cómo se pone cabrera
cuando no nos ve a los dos.

La guitarra, en el ropero
todavía está colgada:
nadie en ella canta nada
ni hace sus cuerdas vibrar.
Y la lámpara del cuarto
también tu ausencia ha sentido
porque su luz no ha querido
mi noche triste alumbrar.

Originality

by DPando

One of the most interesting things to pay attention in Buenos Aires if you can understand spanish is trying to listen to people on the streets...specially men talking to women and mainly flattering them (her) ..its really funny because its not rude or unpolite.. absolutelly not...they are so originals telling funny but at the same nice words to them !!

People use to talk with words like "NEGRO" to call someone on the street that means "BLACK
or FLACO ..on the same refering .. that means "THIN"
or GORDO that means FAT

All this word are so common and noone could take offence by that ...its so popular and funny

the words on the pic mean this

"hey FATTY you are the love of my life, your FATTY girl,Anita...." and then just in the middle
forever !

Museo de Bellas Artes

by ddbleu

I went to Malba and the Museo de Bellas Artes. Bellas Artes was far superior to Malba, so if you can't make it to both, go to the B.A. There is so much to see you will need at least a couple of hours. Room after room of Latin art and another section with European art. You can check any bags at the security desk at the entrance for free. And there is no charge to enter the museum, but you may make a donation! The Malba cost $7 pesos!

Best Shopping Malls

by Frisbeeace

If you're on a shopping tour taking advantage of Argentina's low prices after devaluation go to the following malls:
1. Patio Bullrich: small but very sophisticated. The best brands are here. Not the cheapest one, of course.
2. Paseo Alcorta: 10' north of the typical hotel area. Large and great place to do shopping. Ideal to combine a visit to the Malba museum which is 1 block apart
3. Unicenter Shopping: 30' north, over the Panamericana hwy. Combine with a visit to the San Isidro neighborhood or Tigre area. Everything you may need Request the VAT exemption for tourists (21%)
