  • Love this place, but I noticed on this trip that the place has started to go downhill a bit. The bathrooms weren't clean; there was no soap in bathrooms, and many of the machines didn't work properly or had broken parts or buttons. Still a good time, just surprised about upkeep.
  • The perefect place to enjoy food festival while seeing horses races
  • For me, a racetrack should be like Palermo -- a good track needs to have some kind of tradition behind it .. in the buildings, in the trees and grass, in the amenities for guests, If it is just a big cash register with old hags and bums lining the fence hoping their 50 cent bet will pay off a thousand bucks, it's a bummer. Only good track is a pretty track. I have spoken! :) Cheers.
  • Very nice neighborhood. Food & fun unlimited.
  • Nice place if you like to gamble

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.
