Best choice to stay in. Close enought to downtown. Plus, at night time you dont have to leave the neighborhood to find good restaurants and bars. It was the best think, coming back to the hotel from a long day walking to have a shower and have good options for the night just around the corner.

In 24 hours, we saw 1) saw a pedestrian and 2) a motorcyclist hit by cars because PEOPLE DON'T GIVE A CRAP ABOUT STOP SIGNS and run them. Also, we were scammed by 3 different cab drivers in 1 week. Get a life people.

Lots of restaurants and shops. Felt very safe while walking around. Always people out and about, and very easy to find new places to try and hang out.

Full of life and colour. A young spirit can be felt throughout the area. Lovely shops and restaurants. Great for walking and just soaking up the atmosphere.

Palermo is the place to stay if you want to stay in a trendy, restaurant filled location with lots to do at night. You cannot go wrong and if you like to explore you could find yourself walking around Palermo several days and not get bored.

with a lot of character! We spent most of our time in Argentina in Palermo (Hollywood and Soho) as well as near Plaza d' Italia. Enjoyed walking around everywhere. One major complaint I have is that the sidewalks need better maintenance. I fell down once due to the many holes and uneven ground spots everywhere.

Palermo is a great place to be in Buenos Aires. It's full of parks, easily accessible by bus and within walking distance of many "must see" sites like the Recoleta Cemetery, Evita Museum, Japanese Gardens, and MALBA (Museo de Arte Latinamericano de Buenos Aires.

Palermo is one of several languid, leafy and elegant upscale neighborhood outside of the center that are good for shopping, dining, galleries. I found them all pretty similar, but that is not a criticism. All easily reached by metro.

Everything is very close to you, and the area comes alive, especially Friday to Sunday (but most nights) around 10-11pm. Practically no high rise buildings, only authentic charm.
