Palermo is a must see if you are visiting Buenos Aires for a few days. There are endless cafés, restaurants and shops and the buildings are painted in bright and beautiful colours. This is a great place to just walk around and enjoy the artwork painted on buildings or sit at one of the many patios and people watch. Recommend... More

This part of town is full of restaurants, local shops and interesting street art. We walked through the area and found a lot of very interesting sites. There is some very good street art. One thing to look out for is that people do not always pick up after their dogs. Also be very aware of traffic as the pedestrian... More

Remind me of Soho in New York in the 1970s. There are several new shops mixed in with older stores, hair salons, coffee shops, gastro pubs, alternative restaurants. You can find Vietnamese food Indian food vegetarian food. I stated a fantastic hotel within walking distance and the neighborbood is much more relaxed and some of the busiest parts of Buenos...

We stayed in the Dazzler Palermo for 2 nights and did some roaming around in the neighborhood. It's safe, well kept and. luckily, has a nice variety of restaurants. I wouldn't call it a tourist destination. It's more a residential neighborhood.

While staying in Buenos Aires we lived in Palermo based on recommendations of friends that know the city well and we could not have been happier with our choice. In retrospect would I have picked between Recoleta and Palermo, but keeping in mind that Palermo is a bit more up and coming and has a little more alternative and youthful... More

Visited this area twice with its quirky buildings and shops. Had the local empanados (savoury pie- delicious) for lunch. The colourful buildings were attributed to the paint left over from the previous wharf activities. The artisans of the area produce beautiful necklaces and particularly leather goods. We bought an Argentine leather jacket each, mine having attractive flowers "tattooed' on the... More

We have stayed in an apartment on Uriarte two blocks from Plaza Italia for the past three winters, a few weeks each visit. We love the shady streets, myriad restaurants and bars, easy access to other parts of the city. Other barrios are more up-scale, but we find Palermo plenty comfortable and accommodating.

This is a really interesting area of the city. You get the feel immediately when walking about, that there is a great atmosphere here. Loads of restaurants, bars, boutique shops etc line the streets. Fun place to stay and walk around. Feels safe too.

This is a lovely suburb with lots of restaurants, cafes and shops to choose from. As a tourist I felt very safe and comfortable here. Some of the streets are cobbled and there are some great bars and nightlife. Beware it can be a little noisy at night but I did not mind. A great choice for tourists.

Neighbourhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighbourhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favourite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
