    One of the best place for Peace lovers. We can find stalls, we can find people playing great music. The place has a beautiful view and we have Recoleta Cemetery beside it, you can also visit that place.

    You can buy the perfect figure, gift or other pleasant trifles.

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.
