I'm off to BA for the 1st two weeks of July depsite the weather. I'd like to take Spanish classes while I'm there and maybe drop into a drawing class. I'd love to stay in a cool neighborhood that is also safe (single woman travelling solo). I've been pointed in the direction of Palermo Viejo. What do you think? Any specific hotel recommendations? I'd like to pay no more than $100. WHat about spanish and drawing classes? Thanks so much in advance for your help.
