It was our second time at Buenos Aires (Feb 2012, sorry little late to post) and both opportunities we stayed on this hotel, Ibis Congresso. Very well located to do a good sight-seeing walk, as well as one of the Bs As Free walking City Tours starts at Plaza del Congreso, almost in front of the hotel. At the early morning for sure you will see some dog walkers and their nice dogs walking around and playing at the plaza. The breakfast buffet (usualy not included) is good and has a good variety to get the energy to start the day, but we also recomend some very near coffee shops were you can have a combination of coffee/tea, fresh orange juice and very good bread (toasts and medialunas, the argentinean croissant), for example going out of the hotel, take right as going to the Av de Mayo subway, and just couple stores after the hotel you will see a very small coffee shop that is also a bakery (panaderia), where everything we tried tasted so good! Of course, unfortunately, as in many other countries, we have seen several homeless people in the downtown area, what is sad and not beautiful to see, but they seem harmless (at least we didn't see or listen anything about). If you like riding a bike we also recomend a tour with the "la bicicleta naranja" (the orange bike), you can rent and have a really nice time (as the yellow ones are only for citizens)! And last tip, if you like icecream as me, don't miss the very good argentinean ice cream, not only at the famous ones, but for example at Winpy just in front of the hotel, across the Plaza del Congresso.
