It is very important to choose the part of the city where you want to be. Sometimes its central, some other times is beach, and many others you dont care.
When I visit Buenos Aires it is usually an stop over therefore I can stay where I want.
And thats always Puerto Madero (area) and Madero Hotel.
Madero hotel is centrally located in the Puerto Madero area. What can I do here?
1. Run in the mornings or afternoons along the port which is around 5km perfect for one or two turns
2. I am beside all the nice and good restaurants in the Puerto Madero area being La Cabaña de las Lilas my preferred option
3. This place is safe
4. Puerto Madero is not far from the bars at the Cementerio de La Recoleta which helps
The hotel itself looks brand new, rooms are VERY spacious and look over a inside garden (beautiful). They come with a nice terrace which is a nice touch. Bed is big and comfy, you have a pseudo type of kitchen in the room and again, lots of space. Bathroom is great too. Breakfast is delicious with many things to choose. And finally, a lot of airlines stay here and there must be a reson for that.
Nice gym and nice pool in the top part of the building.
If you can get a decent rate here (which it is not that difficult) MADERO HOTEL for me is a MUST.
Dont miss it.
