This review is factually correct as of mid October 2013 After traveling around the Americas for 8 months I decided to spend my last few weeks in a slightly more premium lodging. I was not disappointed! Security and Safety: You have to get through 3 locked doors to enter your individual room, you are very secure. The area is also...

The Republica San Telmo is well located, but it is no longer the place it used to be (judging by former reviews). Nicholas is no longer there, and the current staff are almost never around - although David was helpful when he was there. It has the feel of an abandoned house. The other family staying there and I were...

This is a small B&B. My husband and I stayed for 8 nights in late April 2013. Staff David and Lucas are very attentive, helpful and do whatever it takes to make sure you have a good stay. They told us about the neighborhood, where to eat for cheap and where to find subways and buses. They also called taxis...

A good location for your stay in Buenos Aires with friendly staff, clean, and a kitchen. Breakfast is limited with only bread, jams, instant coffee and tea. The hostel is run by 2 gentlemen, Lucas and David, on behalf of its owners. Lucas, works the day and he is very helpful, you can ask him relevant info about the area,...

Entering Republica is like visiting your grandmother. It feels like a home, but a bit oldfashioned. It's a good place to start a visit in Buenos Aires, as the double doors kept streetnoise outside and airco made it ok. The downside is that the noise from the other rooms is not kept outside the room. And I'm not talking about...

Staying in San Telmo

Neighbourhood Profile
San Telmo
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.
