  • The Plaza Lavalle is an homage to Argentine soldier and politician Juan Lavalle, who distinguished himself in the fight of the independence of Argentina. This square is located across from the Teatro Colon and is well cared for

  • It is a very nice place. With a tree of more than 100 years. Ideal place to escape the noise of the city. Very close to one of the most important synagogues in buenos aires and Museum of the Jewish people, and famous teatro Colón. Don't miss a visit to the theatre

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.
