I spent a week in Recoleta and I wish I could have stayed more. It was an ideal place to discover Buenos aires. The house is gorgeous, located in an ancient somewhat french or french inspired neighborhood. It is a very quiet and luxurious place. In the same time it isn't far from the main streets of the city and... More

The people who run the guest house are most helpful with anything you might need and information on the city. Breakfast is served in the former family dining room. Not a North American breakfast, but rather bread of some kind, coffee, tea, fruit, jam. Once in a while you're offered an egg. Remember, you're in South America people. The room... More

We enjoyed our first nights in B.A. at the Recoleta Guest House. The people were very nice; they even arranged to have a wine tasting session in the dining room for us. The Guest House is within walking distance of many nice shops, restaurants, and sights. We were able to use their computer to book our bus to Bariloche. Overall,... More

My daughter and I recently stayed at the Recoleta Guest House. The central location was perfect for Buenos Aires sight seeing. Nearby restaurants were wonderful! The breakfast was very generous and tasty. The rooms were comfortable and clean. Finally, the rates were remarkable; this was a great place to stay!

Three old gal pals traveling together were lucky enough to find this fabulous bed and breakfast. The location was perfect for walking to city destinations in a very safe and quiet neighborhood. The breakfast was delicioius! Be sure to ask Alejandro for his corn pie receipe. We will certainly return.

We stayed at the Recoleta guest-house at the beginning and end of our 3 week Argentina trip and enjoyed our stay tremendously; waking up to the small of freshly baked bread, accompanied by home produced jam for breakfast, how special is that!!

We spent about 5 nights in the Recoleta Guest House and felt very fortunate to have found this gem in one of the nicest and quietest neighborhoods of Buenos Aires. Since it is on a uncongested street, there was no street noise so sleeping was a dream. Breakfast was delicious and substantial and the company of the other guests and... More

From figuring bus routes, to choosing a place to shop or see a tango show, they will help with every detail. Their resaurant recommenations are always superb.

Staying in Recoleta

Neighborhood Profile
Characterized by the French-style mansions which are the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this neighborhood is an experience like no other in Buenos Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll also find a rich cultural scene centered on the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library, and the Recoleta Cultural Center; as well as some great shopping spots, like the Buenos Aires Design Mall with an artists' fair set up in Plaza Francia every weekend.
