  • It is an interesting place, a beautiful market to walk, eat and discover Antiquities. Now owns a big gastronomic offer which is a good choice to go to lunch the weekend.

  • A trip to something different. It is very nice to take those spectrum selling old things, from trinkets to very exclusive decoration items. Very nice to spend a Sunday afternoon. A tourism area inner and outer, one walks and listen to different languages... Very good choice to visit.

  • Nice market, good cheese & cured meats, butchers have a good selection of fresh lamb etc., best french bread in BA, over-priced coffee beans, vegetables are expensive but they do have items that you can't find in your average verduleria. Also nice to see as it's quite old fashioned.
  • The place is getting better with various food options from around the world (French, Swiss, Vietnamese, burgers, coffee, wine, etc) and also a farmers' market
  • My favorite place in all of Buenos Aires, seriously. Even though its character has changed considerably, and very quickly, over the last year. Instead of antiques and second-hand stores, which are still here if not as many, the mercado is now dominated by restaurants of many cuisines and styles, including "Vietnamese," American burger culture, Swiss (!), French, wine shops, and, of course, Coffeetown, with more on the way. It's a revolution that's taking place in the whole neighborhood, really, but most of the food isn't spectacular. Plus I hope that doesn't mean more horrible people hanging out and talking too loudly. The last thing I want to San Telmo to become is Plaza Serrano. Anyway, don't miss it, and eat a burger or chivito at the traditional Bar del Mercado.
  • Tourist sight in San Telmo. Great The City café inside. Worth of visit.
  • Nice typical and autoctonal place to visit! Great place to eat

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.
