  • Luxury from the outside and pure industrial simplicity on the inside. A building with a rich history which served as the first water distribution center of the city. Free visits every Wednesday at 11:...  more »
  • The Palacio de Aguas Corrientes is one of the most beautiful buildings of Av. Cordoba, both its institutional function and its striking French architecture. Worth admiring its facade, visit him and take the views of the new postcards BA viewpoints.

  • Since ancient Rome. Tubes and all connected with water in the town. Great architecture. Lovely party place.
  • Really interesting architectural style of the building. Gave it 4 stars because of the strange opening hours: from 9 a.m. till 1 p.m.
  • This place is just amazing. It is literally a monument to water.
  • Incredible building! It has a spectacular view and it really stands out in the street, with it's spectacular architecture.
  • Lovely place, I wish I had the chance to go on the tour but apparently they close at 1pm and only open Mon to Fri. But I did go into the public area and the bathroom is probably the best public bathroom in all of Argentina.

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.
