Buenos Aires

Click here for the best places to stay in Buenos Aires.

In the colourful heart of busy Buenos Aires you see business men in suits dashing past fruit sellers and their stalls, and the local butcher might be sandwiched between an internationally known boutique and an award winning seafood restaurant. Buenos Aires is both cosmopolitan metropolis and, in places, a small, friendly town. A place where everything from wine to the tango deserves celebrating in festival form! Every barrio, or neighbourhood, has something different to offer, so deciding on the best places to stay in Buenos Aires can have a big impact on your visit.

'Mash-ups' are where the appeal of this city-like-no-other lies. In the Bacchanalian atmosphere of partying 'til dawn and sleeping 'til midday, but still open for business first thing. In the edgy 21st Century style encroaching politely onto the faded gentility. She's half Latin American, half European and totally unique.

Palmero Viejo is one of the best places to stay in Buenos Aires if you want to immerse yourself in the nightlife. A magnet for independent boutiques, street culture and club culture, this is the perfect spot for evening people watching in the trendy cafes and bars. Palmero Viejo is also the only part of the Palmero district not filled with high rise apartments, so it's got more of a traditional feel. Bohemian Palmero Hollywood is a good neighbourhood for restaurants.

San Telmo was once one of Buenos Aires' wealthiest, as well as oldest district, but she was left dilapidated by a Yellow Fever epidemic in 1871. Some of the beautiful old building are now being restored and if you appreciate distinctive architecture this is one of the best places to stay in Buenos Aires. San Telmo is also well known for its Sunday fair, antiques shopping and tango schools...

If you enjoy poking round galleries and antique shops, head to Retiro. This is also where you'll find the Palacio Paz, and several other interesting old palaces. And the central train and bus stations.

The famous red brick dockyards of Puerto Madero are being gentrified into a brand new, vibrant waterfront neighbourhood. The best places to stay in Buenos Aires are never far from shops, bars, restaurants and other entertainments including concert halls and auditoriums.
