I booked this hotel over the internet two months before leaving, I received e-mails confirming my book weeks before arrive there and the day I arrived they said I hadn't booked. They gave us a small room and no explanation about anything, changed the price of booking from the one I got on the internet, basically I felt they wanted... More

In a lively area, Lavalle with plenty of shops, resteraunts and bars. Cost approximately £20 per night. Good value for this part of town. The place itself is old and a fair bit tired looking but is clean. I had to pay in US$ as I did not have enough Pesos. They say they accept Visa/Mastercard etc, but when speaking... More

I stayed here for four nights, paying about USD25/night for a double room (single occupancy) with private bathroom. I cannot stress enough the importance of paying with actual US cash, not pesos; it doesn't matter if you're not American, bring USD with you. (This is probably good advice for visiting Argentina generally; search the web and make up your own... More

Some may say this place doesn't deserve this many stars. And if my standards were higher and I were a more entitled American, I'd agree. There are many cons: most rooms are small and cramped, walls are crumbling, plaster is old, bathrooms need mildew expunged from walls, and it can be noisy. However, when you keep in mind that it...

We were redirected to this place, even though we booked another hostel (DownTownMate Hostel) via venere.com. We were not automatically notified about that by them, instead we found out by chance, when we called to ask for directions. The owner own both this place and DownTownMate. We did not want to stay at this place. POS: free internet, which actually... More

I have had a one night stop over in Buenos Aires, arriving at the airport, departing by ferry to Uruguay. So I have looked for a cheap option to stay, which was close to the Buquebus-ferry terminal. I have booked the Hotel O'Rei via booking.com and was satisfied. At the reception they have been prepaired for my arrival (many hotels... More

I paid 50 Arg. pesos (<$15) for a single room with shared bathroom during the off-season. The room was rustic at best, but "perfectly habitable" as the Let's Go guide indicated it would be. There's no breakfast and no fridge in the room, but the central location (at the intersection of Buenos Aires' two major pedestrian streets) means there's no... More

Staying in San Nicolas

Neighborhood Profile
San Nicolas
Immersed in the sound of honking horns and the footsteps of busy office workers, the Microcentro area of San Nicolás is where visitors will encounter the true hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, walking down streets lined with office buildings and banks. The financial district is well-known for its vibrant atmosphere and unstoppable rhythm during office hours. After dark, the hubbub migrates to Corrientes Ave., where theater lovers might start their evening at a play and end it in one of the many traditional pizzerias nearby. During the day, Corrientes is known for its many bookshops and classic cafés, which are located just minutes away from some famous landmarks, like the Obelisco, Avenida 9 de Julio, and the Teatro Colon.
