  • If we are going to talk about "dangerous", it is citywide and there are far worse areas. Lavalle is a pedestrian for locals who, for tourists, I think, because it is those sites which at first glance are filled with traps for visitors, but that if one knows where to go and what business going, has great prices and very interesting stuff.

  • The pedestrian lavalle was after florida's the more interesting of the federal capiatal but now unfortunately this ugly and very sad. It is not worthwhile or lose a minute

  • Lavalle is a very busy street, with many tourists and is only for pedestrians. There you find everything: shops, restaurants, banks, hotels, coffee shops and more. Lavalle is parallel to the Florida Street.

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.
