Retiro, Buenos Aires

1.0
#12 of 23 in Neighborhoods in Buenos Aires
Neighborhood Tourist Spot
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. Retiro is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our world travel planner, Buenos Aires Edition.

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.
