“Thumbs up for Recoleta Neighborhood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

The neighborhood Recoleta is really nice. Just to explore random streets, it won´t be long until you will spot nice restaurants, cafes and shops. Close to the cemetery is a small shopping mall, the mall is not that special but it houses a number of restaurants and nice places to chill or to grab a quick bite, enjoy a high tea. I used the mall it to hide for the rain, there is also a movie theater.

“My Vote For Best Neighborhood To Stay In BA”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

This is simply a beautiful neighborhood. Very European feel with tree lined streets and a comfortable, safe feeling. A wonderful place to mix with locals as there are supermarkets and small stores. There are a great many restaurants within walking distance of the numerous hotels. There is good public transportation and taxis are abundant and inexpensive.

“Nice neighborhood, lots of places to eat. Good place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

Recoleta is one of the better and safer neighborhoods in Buenos Aires. There's an assortment of shopping, lots of restaurants, and some of the city's more interesting attractions are nearby, like the Recoleta cemetery. Definitely worth considering this as a base of exploration for Buenos Aires

“Very specific place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

I`m not sure it`s a good idea to walk around the cemetery. But not in Buenos Aires. Here you don`t think about your very short being. Here you just have a rest, a pause in the excellent Baires looking at this architectural collection of post mortem vanity by noble families of BA.
