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.

  • Amazing gardens, with signs describing most of the flora. There are also many statues and arrangements which give a lot of variety. If you're a cat lover, you might enjoy meeting the remaining strays which still live here. There's also a greenhouse filled to the brim with various other plants. You won't find anyone trying to sell you stuff, and it is very quiet and relaxing. A great place for couples.
  • Beautiful collection of gardens. There are different styled gardens, like French and Roman gardens. Nice and complete greenhouses with lots of plant specimens.
  • Great spot for a walk. Lots of amazing plants. Very relaxing. Really enjoyed it
  • Magnificent botanical garden with excellent arrangement. They should try and divert the 2 busy roads that pass by to create a more peaceful ambience!
  • Excellent, millions of spiecies, very well taken care and catalogued. Family walk or by yourself. Very safe.
