Begun in 1898 and completed in 1906, the national landmark of Congreso houses the Congress of Argentina. Built in the neoclassical style, the stately building stands on the Calle de Mayo. Outside, inspect the exterior's aesthetic touches added by Argentinian artists. You can take a tour of the inside, which shows you such historical spaces as the pink room, where women's suffrage was debated. If planning to take the tour, check before you go: they offer English tours only on certain days. Put Congreso into our Buenos Aires vacation builder website and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

    Imposing building with an architecture full of beautiful details. Stay in front of him is impressive ....//is located at one end of Avenida de Mayo since on the other side is the Casa Rosada. The square in front is adorable.

    The expectation was much but visit me disappointed. The tour was extremely poor; According to us report Guide, for restoration purposes and by events that were being developed, only you could visit a sector. So we visited the Chamber of Deputies and the Hall of the lost steps. Little information and a real disappointment.

    Incredible place although more lockers, would miss him more tables and outlets to work. The other bad thing (outside the building) is that when there is any protest outside, there is a lot of noise. After that, it is super silent

    It was a great place, with the only flaw that not is I could take anything to eat or drink (understandable), today I returned from several months of not coming, there are more arrangements and light, but less tables to study in good condition, less plugs work well and today for some reason, almost for the entire library there is a loud noise as if they were moving a table from one side to another... VERY molesto(espero lo arreglen pronto)

Where to stay in Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires offers an impressive selection of budget-friendly and mid-range lodgings, as well as pricier, more luxurious options for visitors who don't mind splashing out. Good rooms are scattered across town, but your best bet for economical hostels remains San Telmo, a neighborhood on the edge of downtown. For boutique establishments and international five-star hotels, head to Palermo, Recoleta, or Puerto Madero, upscale neighborhoods drawing the majority of foreign visitors.
