Hotel Babel in San Telmo was a joy to stay at. Lauro the manager and the whole team made us feel so very welcome, nothing was too much trouble.
The hotel is in a perfect location to explore the wonderfully bohemian San Telmo.
The hotel is in a great location- 10 minute walk from the centre, near the river and one road from the famous flea market.
The staff could not have been more friendly, helpful or informative. If you stay here definitely ask for restaurant recommendations, you...More
We got so much help from the staff at this hotel not only for Buenos Aires, but for our trip to Patagonia as well.

Characterized by cobblestones and narrow streets, San Telmo is defined by the tango, the dance that made Buenos Aires world-famous. Tango is a fusion of many different cultures: a true child of immigration, much like the city itself. Nowadays, it comes alive after dark in the milongas (dance parties) attended by both locals and visitors alike, who dance until the wee hours of the morning. During the day, the antique
shops and classic cafés and bars around Plaza Dorrego dominate the scene. The emblematic Bar Plaza Dorrego, with its green awnings, checkered tile floors, and wooden interiors, takes you back in time the moment you step inside. For true porteño traditions, San Telmo is the place to be.
