Loved this neighbourhood as restaurants were plentiful and good. Felt quite safe walking to/from our hotel at night. I have to agree about the doggie poo although I'm told Palermo has smartened up a lot from what it used to be. Buenos Aires is a beautiful city that gives Paris a real run for its money. Sophisticated, clean with lots... More

The Palermo barrio is an upscale neighbourhood of Buenos Aires. Of particular interest to many tourists would be staying at a Palermo hotel, dining at restaurants, checking out some of the many upscale and unique shops, bars and cafes especially in Palermo Soho, and strolling through the 17.2 acre Botanical Gardens of Buenos Aires (free admission), the Japanese Garden (entrance...

In this neighborhood, I felt safer walking around than any other area in BA! There was great life in the restaurants and bars but it was still quiet and calm. I enjoyed it very much and wish I stayed in the area the whole week rather than hop around! This is a great first stop when coming to BA to... More

Great touristy area with plenty of bars, shops, and cafes to keep you occupied. Everything is walking distance. Only problem was the noise. On the weekends it was hard to sleep with all the bars raging until sunrise.

We stayed in Palermo for 3 days. It is a great area to walk around in, to dine, and to shop for designer clothing. The parks are really worthwhile too!

... Palermo is a nice neighbourhood. That's why we picked our hotel here. I said nice neighbourhood. BUT we are tourists and tourists want to be near tourist things not necessary cafes, bars, shopping and restaurants. Next time we stay in Retiro which is close to Recoleta, Defensa, Belle Artes, San Telmo ... and much more in easy walking distance.... More

This is a nice area of Buenos Aires. Interesting restaurants; worth a visit. It is a short cab ride from Recoleta.

Neighborhood Profile
Best known as the largest neighborhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favorite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
