“Some of the Best Shops in the City”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

When one refers to BA as a city of designers, he is probably referring to Palermo. Boasting some of the best labels and designers in BA, the chic and fashionable Palermo never fails to delight with one-of-a-kind shops, swanky boutiques and great cafes. Some of the city's best-loved designers and most sought-after foreign brands can be found here. So bring you purse and start shopping!

“Drink all night party all day..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Met some amazing people in this great little spot in BA a little away from the madness of downtown. A great spot to get everywhere you need to. Nothing like having supper at 10 pm and drinking ice cold (cheap) beer all night to shock your senses and really make you feel abroad. All in all met friends for life in Palermo and would recommend it highly as a place to stay.

“Can't experience BA without visiting Palermo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

No trip to BA I complete without visiting Palermo. It would be like going to San Francisco and skipping Fishermans Wharf and New York and missing Times Square. It is colorful and original and works hard to provide a positive experience. Be wary as police are located around the perimeter of the area. Our tour guides made it very clear that we should not return after dark. The shops are interesting and it is simply fun to walk around Palermo.

“Colourful, interesting, some nice restaurants”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

Good for people watching, has many trendy shops as well as some cheaper ones. There is a small market square with lots of interesting souvenirs and artisan items. Good for browsing and just enjoying a nice day. Lots of bars, cafes a very live.y and colourful place. Some of the more popular Buenos Aires restaurants are to be found there too. It would be a real shame to miss this lovely Neighbourhood. Seems like a b.? Yuppie place
