I wanted to know how far is AV COLOMBIA 4300 from LAS HERAS 3099 in Buenos aires..i tried to look up on some websites but coudnt find it.
I really need to know how far are they from each other as I have a visa appointment ..and it would be great if someone could suggest a hostel around this area.
As far as I could find out these areas are in Recoleta.
Many thanks in advance

There's an excellent digital map of BsAs that also gives distances afaik; link is included in the Buenos Aires article of TP's Travel Guide ('getting around' section).

In left pane of the map, select 'recorrido a pie', and then enter the required start and end points. You will find that it is only 6,5 blocks, or 650 mts approx.

Hostels in this part of town don't come cheap, so I suggest you find a place elsewhere.

Thanks so much!
so u mean these two addresses are 6-7 blocks apart?
I tried to look for directions but for colombia ave 4300 the map says 'No se encontrĂ³ la calle AVE COLOMBIA'..probably means no such street ave colombia.
but surely its an useful map! it does give directions for other addresses.

yeah, you're right, same happened to me. That's probably because Avenida Colombia is a very small section of a much larger road with a different name

But i finally found it in the map..and its not very far from las heras!..i could also locate a few hostels around 3-4 kms from there in the range of 12-15 $
Thanks once again for all the help!
