Very nice hotel located near the Obelisco. Great roof pool with panoramic views of the city.
Very elegant facade and common rooms. Great breakfast, helpful service, and nice bar. The swimming pool is small.
This is one of the very best restaurants in BA. Friendly service, good steaks, and a potato souffle that is very unusual--and all at a reasonable cost.
A little touristy, but a great place for people watching. The art from the street vendors is probably overpriced--better buys at the flea market.
This and El Viejo Almacen are the two best tango shows. El Querandi has a show that covers the history of tango. It serves a surprisingly good dinner.
The show is more intimate than El Querandi. It also includes some Andean music. The food is also quite good here, but that is not the principal attraction.
Attractive slice of history on interesting square--see the cathedral when you visit here.
Interesting, looks rather like the Washington Monument. Great view of fireworks around Christmas.
Former waterfront area, not gentrified. Good food options and two nice museum ships moored here. Cabana Las Lilas is a good restaurant in this area.
This is the cemetery where most of the notables are buried. Most people wish to visit Evita's tomb, but there are other worthwhile sites. You probably need to see this only once.
You can catch a train from the central station there. There are several boat tours of the area--worth doing. The Naval Museum is worth a visit if you are here.
Quite a collection of weapons and personal armor, conveniently located if you are staying in the central neighborhood.
Interesting flea market with lots of small shops nearby. There is typically music--some of it very good from street musicians.
Carlos Gardel is the most famous tango singer. He died in a plane crash in Colombia at a relatively young age, so he is forever young. No one has seen him dissolute or unattractive. This is the house in which he lived with his mother.
The Perons are the power couple of the middle of the twentieth century in Argentina and Eva was the energetic (and controversial) one. This museum celebrates her history.
Absolutely first class museum--elegant interior design and great art.
This was a very good museum--sorry to learn that it is closed.
You have to be interested in trains, but if so this is a good option.
