The location is conveniently placed within walking distance to food, shops, and public transport. The rooms are well presented and very clean, and included at kitchenette if you want to make your own breakfast. Be aware outside the hotel, could be unsecure at late night

Good location (almost in front of the Lavalle Subte station), lots of shops, cafes and restaurants (Very good cafe with fantastic empanadas just a few meters from the hotel).

Staying in San Nicolas

Neighborhood Profile
San Nicolas
Immersed in the sound of honking horns and the footsteps of busy office workers, the Microcentro area of San Nicolás is where visitors will encounter the true hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, walking down streets lined with office buildings and banks. The financial district is well-known for its vibrant atmosphere and unstoppable rhythm during office hours. After dark, the hubbub migrates to Corrientes Ave., where theater lovers might start their evening at a play and end it in one of the many traditional pizzerias nearby. During the day, Corrientes is known for its many bookshops and classic cafés, which are located just minutes away from some famous landmarks, like the Obelisco, Avenida 9 de Julio, and the Teatro Colon.
