We walked to the area from our Hotel and we enjoyed the day in the area. It was Sunday, so the Church was open with a beautiful Mass in progress, with the Cloisters being open to visitors, the Sunday markets and the Mausoleum of Evita Peron. We found everything to be convenient and we enjoyed our day immensely.

At times we felt like we were in Italy, or France as we walked comfortably around this classic upscale Buenos Aires neighborhood. While we did not find the shopping particularly great we enjoyed the cafes, store windows and general ambiance charming and more than memorable. Our hotel was situation in this area, The Park Hyatt.

The Recoleta cemetery was just in front of our hotel (L'Etoile) and this was the very first site we visited in Buenos Aires. We were really impressed by the architecture and the general impression of peaceful 'grandeur' of this site. We certainly recomend this visit.

We decided to stay in Recoleta at an AirBNB apartment. Beautiful part of the city. Feels like the upper east side of NYC. Loved the Recoleta Cemetery

If you are interested in history, then Recoleta cemetery is a great place to learn about famous personages who lived and died in Argentina. If you are just a casual observer, then the cemetery is simply just a unique experience regardless of anything else. It was fun to see mausoleum after mausoleum reading the name and stumbling accords Eva Duarte... More

Not just about Eva Peron, the place is beautiful and cared for and ha some amazing monuments. It did feel a bit creepy at first but after a while it was nice to sit on a bench or stroll around and take a look at the other parts apart from the Eva memorial

I have lived in Recoleta for 1.8 years now and I just feel like in Europe. Lovely architecture, plenty of places where to eat out and of course, it is quite safe. Av Santa Fe can get very busy so I recommend to avoid it during the rush hours :)

Nice safe area to stay in. Buildings are fantastic. Very central. Beautiful market on weekends. The cemetary is a must see. Would recommend a tour guide as they explain everything.

One of the most amazing neighborhoods in the city. Always a delight to just wander about in and soak up the atmosphere.

Recoleta is one of the most charming neighborhoods in Buenos Aires. Recoleta Cemitery, Buenos Aires Design Mall - where the Hard Rock Buenos Aires is in - and lots of restaurants around.
