Is just SO SAD, to see what this place has become...back in the day it was were my family would take me to the movies, and then have some food at the wonderful "El Palacio de la Papa Frita" (I'll review them later. Now is just dangerous, full of pick pockets, and prostitutes...the lowest of the low. Clear proof of... More

Always crowded and great bargains to be had. However, it's seen better days and it's always advisable to hold tightly onto your purse!

It is rife with pick pockets. the squares between florida and 9 de julio are full of porn films. rather seedy and low life. Calle Florida is a better choice.

Dirty, smelly. Full of homeless cardboard gatherers by night. Full of bad mooded workers by day. What would you want to go to a place like this for unless you have some document to complete or work to get done. If you are visiting, you will find nothing worth it here...

it is a side step from walking amongst the traffic and makes th trip down to the harbour area enjoyable. lots of shops and variety with hassle free walking and not having to hear the sound of the traffic

This street used to make a duet with the calle Florida as the haet spot streetsin the downtown of Buenos Aires. Full of stores and street vendors and performers, they were fuzzy from early morning to late, very late at night, say 1 am. This year, the Florida was freed from the street vendors and performers, I guess for the... More

Agree that the pedestrian Lavalle Street just about has it all, plus a great little basic hotel - Hotel Grand King (Lavalle 560) at the intersection of Lavalle and Florida streets - this puts you immediately at your doorstep right into the heart of Buenos Aires in my opinion. The Hotel Grand King rooms are of two qualities- the very... More
