  • Pleasantly surprised at this quaint place

    by

    We took a (pre-paid) taxi from the (EZE) airport early one evening to this hotel. We simply wanted a clean and comfortable place to stay overnight, before we got on the cruise ship the next day. So, we weren't looking for or expecting anything elaborate. In short, we were pleasantly surprised ... with the welcome, reception and the room/facilities. And, not the least ... the breakfast buffet the next morning ! And it is close to the cruise port as well ... 30-40 pesos by cab (mid-morning).

    This hotel has a small frontage and a cozy reception area. When we mentioned that the taxi driver didn't know / couldn't find the place, we were (jokingly) reminded what taxi drivers tend to do. The hotel is snuggled amongst stores and business offices, so we didn't have to go far to find drinks/water, food, etc. even during the evening.

    We asked for and got a quiet room, away from the elevators. The Deluxe room was quite spacious and recently renovated with modern fixtures. It exceeded our expectations (for the price). There isn't any negatives that we can say bothered us. Some people may find the (2) small elevators a negative. Each elevator can take 3 or 4 passenger at one time. Some may not like the amount of traffic (during the day) in front of the hotel.

    The concierge / porter who welcomed us was very helpful and friendly. If / when we visit Buenos Aires again, we'll be happy to stay at this place again.

    Unique Quality: Smoke-free hotel
    Health Club - Heated swimming pool, Scottish showers, dry saunas, jacuzzis and a fitness center;
    Massage Room - Facial and Body Treatments
    Free Wi-Fi (in room)
    On site restaurant (also for breakfast buffet)

    Directions: The hotel is located between the Recoleta neighborhood and downtown Buenos Aires, at walking distance from the main shopping centers, tourist spots, and major neighborhoods of the city.

I would recommend
El Ombú de Areco (San Antonio de Areco, Buenos Aires)
Ruta 31 cuartel VI - Villa Lía
Telephone: (02326) 492080
http://www.estanciaelombu.com/
or Villa Maria Máximo Paz
Ruta 205 Km. 47.5
Telephone: 6091-2064
http://www.estanciavillamaria.com/?i=ef85952255d8333d4cd742c917f6abf5

San Antonio de Areco is much more traditional and the town is very interesting.

Travel Tips for Buenos Aires

Evita's not the only one in Recoleta

by Randyi66

When you go to the Recoleta Cemetary, take some moments to look not just at the well kept mauseoleums, but at some of the more dilapidated ones as well. It's humbling to look at a site and see a coffin sitting there amongst the falling plaster, spider webs, weather stained walls and unfortunately, public trash that has ended up there over time.

tango is more than just dance

by L-A

Tango is a style of music, song and dance all included. It reminded me of a mix of Latin, jazz and Hungarian gypsy music.

Here is a picture of a local band that was excellent (at Cafe Tortoni)

Ooops I will have to re-scan this photo...

Boca Juniors Stadium: you MUST attend

by cadiana88

Boca Juniors stadium, "La Bombonera" (Chocolate box), is the main football temple in Argentina. You must go, see its excellent team and its superb supporters, "La 12" (The player number 12).
Boca Juniors is the current (2004) World Champion. Buy the best tickets, are cheaper than Europa or USA. Outside the Stadium, be careful, don't speak too much in other languages and don't show cameras. Step out before match ends.

Typical Argentinian Mall

by NYC2TLV about Galerías Pacífico Shopping Mall

While it does have a central location and is one of the popular malls, it really does not stand out for boasting anything really special. The one thing I did like was that there was a Nike shop inside where you can purchase Boca Juniors and Racing shirts that you know are not fakes. There are some other benefits such as Tax Free shops and shops that offer free deliveries, so keep your eye out as you window shop.

If you do go inside the mall, go downstairs and take a look from the food court up at the ceiling. It is pretty nice. Go to the typical Argentinian designer stores because if you live in the northern hemisphere and your season differs from Argentina, you can buy winter/summer clothes on sale!
