Hello fellow travellers.

I am currenty in Salta, Argentina. I have been travelling SA for 3 weeks now and am loving it.

My question:

I will be arriving in Buenos Aires on the 30th of March and will be needing a place to stay until the 6th of April.

I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for me.

I would prefer a nice apartment somewhere in the mix of everything, but a hotel would be fine as well.

It will be just myself staying there...my brother, whom I am travelling with, will be heading south to Patagonia while I am in Buenos Aires.

Any suggestions?????????????

Thank you so much for your help

San Telmo is a very nice place to stay,Palermo is the hip place right now,more expensiv.There are also some hostales right in the center of BA,like the Hotel O'Rei
Apartments are more to find in the aerea of Recoleta or further out from the center.
If you look out for bars and fun I think Palermo or San Telmo would be the right places.
check here at TP the Accomodation site there are many hostals listed

enjoy BA a wonderful City,dont miss La Boca

cheers,
Marlis

Suggestion: go with your brother, Patagonia in late summer/autumn is wonderful.

As to accom; there's a lot on offer. Let us know what price range you're looking for. Cheapest acceptable place I've been is Hostal de San Telmo, on the corner of Carlos Calvo and Bolivar streets. Stayed/lived there for 4 months and a bit. Be sure not to take the downstairs dorm at the front, though.
