The centro naval on Avenida Florida has one of the best facades in the downtown district of the city, not too far from Gasa Rosada. The detail in the entry and upper floors is amazing. It is very well preserved example of neo-classical architecture. Unfortunately I could not go inside.

This is an impressive, if dirty, building in the middle of a somewhat tacky shopping street. It's worth a minute of one's time.

This gem of Buenos Aires architecture has one of the most impressive facades in the whole city. The detail is amazing. It is incredibly and impeccably well preserved. The stunningly executed mansard roof and turret are some of the best examples of neo-classical architecture that exist on this continent. If you are able to go inside, the interior is just... More

I passed by this building as I was walking down Calle Florida. Impressive architecture, but unfortunately you can only go as far as the lobby.

Florida street is for shopping, mostly tourists. This unique building is in the heart of it all. Enjoyed my visit.

A unique outside decorated building. I don't know how is the interior. One can enter only the lobby which is also impressive, but cannot see the interior. Every detail in the outside of the building, is remarkable. The windows, the pillars, the roof . I took a picture and then on a large screen computer you can just watch the... More

Just check out the overwhelmingly elaborate main door and it will give you an idea of the opulence of Argentina on the first half of the twentieth Century.

Regarding to the period of four nights which I spent at the Hotel Centro Naval in the beginning of this month I have to say that it is certainly a great place to stay. I'm about 30 and went there with my girlfriend, staying in a double-bed room. First of all, if you want to stay at Centro paying only... More

Staying in Retiro

Neighborhood Profile
Exquisite palaces and luxurious apartment buildings combine with art galleries and exclusive boutiques to make Retiro the perfect spot for those who enjoy sophistication. However, the non-stop foot traffic to and from Retiro train and bus terminals, accompanied by the myriad of trucks leaving and arriving at the port, mean this neighborhood is never truly at rest. One minute you are walking down a street dotted with ornate mansions and luxurious shop windows and the next you find yourself surrounded by a sea of people racing to catch their train or bus. It is this juxtaposition of never-ending comings and goings and quiet, elegant luxury that defines Retiro, as well as Buenos Aires, a city where sharp contrasts are all around.
