Booking hotel in Buenos Aires, looking for a place to stay in a city as big as this, that is good, beautiful, safe and cheap, can be a bit complicated.
Security can give you some resentment, especially if this is your first time in South America.
But relax, Buenos Aires is a safe city.
Although some say that there is no 100% safe city, trust your common sense, and you are going to have the best experience of your life.
Now to what concerns us, here are the three best neighborhoods to book hotel in Buenos Aires.
It is the oldest neighborhood in Buenos Aires and for this reason we will find very beautiful and historical buildings. It is very picturesque and is a very different place from the rest of the city.
It is located close to the center and from there it is possible to move anywhere in the city.
It is a neighborhood that has very good places to eat, from bodegones to fine restaurants. Also, there are a large number of Hostels, which is a good opportunity to go in search of a cheaper price.
This is a beautiful neighbourhood. You can find magnificent hotel buildings, as well as comfortable hostels.
This neighbourhood is safe and quiet. There are restaurants and pubs around the area of the cemetery where locals go after work to grab a beer and there’s also a cinema that opens until late (please, check information due the situation of virus COVID-19).
There are many tourist attractions in this area, and if you take the metro, you can be anywhere in no time.
This neighbourhood is adjacent to Recoleta further away to the north of the city. It’s the centre of a lively nightlife with many theatres, restaurants, pubs and nightclubs.
As there aren’t many tourist attractions close by foot, so we recommend you stay near Santa Fe Avenue, to be close to the metro, if not, stay near Ocampo Avenue, since many buses that go to and from the city centre stop here.
City Centre (Microcentro)
It is comprised of different neighbourhoods like Retiro, San Nicolás and Montserrat that are around Plaza de Mayo. This is the best area to stay if you want to be near the main attractions, but the downside is that it is very hectic during the day and rather deserted at night.
Still, along Avenida de Mayo, you will find concert halls, like Teatro Avenida, and traditional bodegones, that are worth trying.
