“Somewhat Run-Down Shopping Street”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

Always crowded and great bargains to be had. However, it's seen better days and it's always advisable to hold tightly onto your purse!

“Watch out for pick pockets”
Reviewed December 15, 2012

It is rife with pick pockets. the squares between florida and 9 de julio are full of porn films. rather seedy and low life. Calle Florida is a better choice.

“Not really worth it”
Reviewed June 29, 2012

Dirty, smelly. Full of homeless cardboard gatherers by night. Full of bad mooded workers by day. What would you want to go to a place like this for unless you have some document to complete or work to get done. If you are visiting, you will find nothing worth it here...

“Touristic with lots to offer”
Reviewed June 6, 2012

it is a side step from walking amongst the traffic and makes th trip down to the harbour area enjoyable. lots of shops and variety with hassle free walking and not having to hear the sound of the traffic

“My favorite street in downtown Buenos Aires”
Reviewed March 15, 2012

This street used to make a duet with the calle Florida as the haet spot streetsin the downtown of Buenos Aires. Full of stores and street vendors and performers, they were fuzzy from early morning to late, very late at night, say 1 am. This year, the Florida was freed from the street vendors and performers, I guess for the sake of security against pickpockets and purse snatchers (loads and loads of them), but the result was that the Florida lost most of its charm and appeal, in these matters the lavalle now is alone. But this year I looked for some of the stores where I used to buy all sorts of odds and ends and they are also gone. I don't know if it's due to the Argentinian economic hardship, but anyway Lavalle street was still my favorite street for late at night purchases and dinner in its varied kinds of restaurants
