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.

  • I love mataderos market! Very Argentinian and not over pack with tourist
  • Great original Fair with gaucho music and a lot of food from the countryside. A great experience in BA
  • The Mataderos Fair features traditional argentine foods, it showcases folkloric dances and music, and offers people (mainly tourists) a chance to see/buy crafts made by local artisans(anything from dulce de leche, to liquers,knits, leather goods, statuettes etc). It does get especially crowded on the weekends, but thats when all the special events take place.
  • Es muy linda la feria, mucha comida rica y cosas lindas para comprar
  • Super cultural and fun fair. People dance, sing, and just have a good time. There's food and many vendors. You'll see a lot of the same, but there are also unique arts for fair prices. The MC is very spirited
