  • On the day of the date, I went to a guided tour in the press building, the building is very nice and has very well restored parts, in fact is that many people have worked with much dedication, dedication and patience in its restoration. As people that I know and have worked in the building, they told me. The sad thing is NO this for nothing exploited what was able to be a very important newspaper in the city of Buenos Aires. As the building only shows and with a guide which gave very little information about the history of the building and the newspaper that functioned there. I understand that a few years ago they had left some machines and it showed as newspapers printed and part of the run of the place, etc... which today does not exist and would be terrific return to incorporate this demonstration. So, for my was a disappointment, seeing only the shell of the building inside (very nice canned) and outside, but without at least one showroom with the machinery and instruments typical for editing the journal.

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.
