Retiro, Buenos Aires

Take a pleasant walk through Retiro, a neighborhood filled with both cultural attractions and architectural landmarks. As the location of a large bus terminal, the area remains one of the city's major points of entry, and its abundance of monumental plazas and buildings--from the old, Baroque-influenced structures, right through to modern homes and hotels--make it a nice place to explore on foot. Enjoy a bite to eat at one of many restaurants, or head to a bar for a night out. Make Retiro a part of your Buenos Aires vacation plans using our Buenos Aires trip itinerary planning app .

  • Retreat is an upscale suburb of Buenos Aires. There are many luxury hotels, the Monumental Tower, the San Martin square, art galleries, shops, restaurants, pubs, is a mixed commercial and residential area. It is worth to know him.

  • ... calls us from in front, from the Plaza of the Buen Retiro, from where this former Torre de los Ingleses... and see buildings with beautiful architectural lines, in very good condition now and with halls that makes you want to go really. A stain, some surrounding human misery.

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.
