We wanted a quiet place in Buenos Aires to spend 4-5 days. On the last minute we cancelled our reservation in a downtown hotel for Hotel Principe. It was a great decision. Hotel Principe has a great location (in Palermo: one of the richest area), Internet cafe, grocery store, restaurant and ATM were less than a block away. Plus you get to walk from Recoleta, zoo and botanical garden easily. The subte station is one block away and takes you downtown in 10 minutes. The room we had was not modern but we had a small fridge and lots of space. Breakfast was simple but enough to go on: small croissants with juice, yogourt and your choice of coffee (cappucino, espresso etc). We visited downtown and pinpointed all hotels of our initial choice, you do not want to stay downtown in Buenos Aires, it's crowded, noisy and you need to be on your guards constantly.
The rate in december 2004 was 90 pesos, breakfast & tax included
P.S.: the personnel is very friendly but speaks little English. If you have some knowledge of Spanish, you'll be fine.
