This place could be so great, just needs to clean up the entrance way (it was quite dirty when we were there) put some plants in the hallways and on the terrace and properly fix the rooms. The owners were on hols when we stayed...More
Basically, the two more important things are: Location and Owners. Amazing, only 5 blocks of the Casa de la Rosada (pink house) and 2 blocks of Puerto del Madero. Really we stay in the hearth of Fair Market on defensa street. Nice owners, very helpful....More
Pros: Owners are very nice and try to be helpful. The breakfast was simple (pastries, juice, ham/cheese sandwiches, coffee, tea, fruit) but nice. The locations is FANTASTIC for the San Telmo market. The place sits literally on the market route. You are also relatively close...More

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.
