  • The place is wonderful. The restoration was impeccable with modern, well-kept open spaces... and paragraph apart for the Auditorium: large, impeccable and excellent acoustics. The proposal on vacation was giant size games for kids. Very well programmed, with variety, personal right and some proposals for meals. Excellent location and activity

  • A lot of free activities and very active in the art. Its a very nice place to visit and you should look up for the weekly agenda to be sure not to lose anything!!!
  • Beautiful place to visit! The streets are not very nice at night but it is a must tour visit! I suggest you go with visited guide tours they are really complete!
  • A great place for art exhibitions and musical shows, it consists of a large space with many auditoriums and sufficient structure for several simultaneous events (most free). Check the schedule in advance, and arrive at least an hour or two before the event to pick up the tickets.
  • An amazing place to go with the family and specially with little children!
  • Tons of culture in this place. I love it

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.
