... tomb in this cemetery - she actually traveled more after she died than some people do in their whole lives!!! After the cemetery we walked through a park, then caught another bus towards Plaza de Mayo, which is one of the key places to visit in BA. We briefly walked here yesterday, it's surrounded by various government offices and has been the centre of many demonstrations and uprisings I the past. There are permanent police with riot barriers in place around ...
... and making casual conversation in non understandable spanish. AND as if all this wasn't enough to make your heart pumping, this guy chooses to have his eyes glued at my breast the whole time and only looking up at the traffic every once in a while. I was sure my last hour had come until I looked at his name tag and learned I was driving with Jésus...the true master of multitasking...obviously ...
... lady then offered to help clean our bags and got out some tissues. During the cleaning process several locals then jumped out at me and started shouting left and right in my face to take my attention away from my bags. When I looked down my hand luggage bag was gone. One of the locals shouted ´" I saw her take your bag" pointing at a lady 20 metres away, I sprinted after her and it turns out not to be my bag. Then another local shouts "no, not ...
... but it was different as everyone was speaking different languages. This made it so much more confusing. When it was time and we had all drunk a sufficient amount we made our way to the club. Javy had been kind enough to get us tickets for the event so it was free entry for us. We arrived and went down stairs to find the dirtiest electro club ever. By dirty I don't mean unclean I mean dirty music. It sounded like robots having sex and the club itself looked like ...
Today is the day that our time has come to an end in Peru. It has been a good journey. We met people from around the world and locals that lived in Peru. In fact, I ran into a few ladies that are volunteers for the Red Cross in Delaware - just down the road from me. Most of today will be consumed in taxis, airplanes, and airports. We left Cusco at 9:00 in the morning. That got us into Lima at 10:30. Lima is a decent size airport. When we arrived from the United States, we ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Regal Pacific Hotel Buenos Aires
¡Fue lo mejor del viaje!
El hospedarnos en el chic y adecuado Regal Pacific fue una decisión inteligente. Estaba a tres manzanas del centro comercial Galería Pacíficos y de la calle Florida, a tiro de piedra de los restaurantes del puerto Madero donde cenamos algunas veces. El hotel es muy seguro, no es un hotel de una gran cadena, el desayuno tiene mucha calidad y se come muy bien.
Arriving on my birthday, it was mildly disappointing to find that we couldn't have the exact rooms we'd booked (one twin room for our older teenage kids and a king for us) - but the pleasant check-in clerk assured us we could have the correct configuration the following morning - promising to move all our things for us so we wouldn't have to bother.
This could be a very good hotel but the rudeness which I received at checkout was not acceptable. After settling my account,I was told that my room would have to be inspected before I left the building. I wondered what I was supposed to have done wrong. At all times I had been well dressed and polite to all the staff and bear in mind that this hotel touts itself as being five star and not some inexpensive hostel. I asked to see the manager who did not seem to be in the least bit bothered about my being offended and I received a fairly off the cuff apology. There are lots of better hotels in which I have stayed in Buenos Aires. When they sort their hospitality out,starting at the top with the manager,this hotel may be worth a try.
Loved this hotel
I just got back from Buenos Aires last week (Week of 9/4/06). Went with two other friends. We loved this hotel! It is pretty modern and very central. The staff was very helpful and tried to assit us in any way. Puerto Madero is walkig distance or a very short ride away. Puerto Madero had all the nice restaurants you can imagine. I would definetely stay here again!
You have Plaza de Mayo near by, Regal Pacific Mall, Avenida Florida and this excellent empanadas place right around the corner. If interested, you can also walk and take the ferry to Uruguay (Colonia Sacramento) and spend the day there.
We just had a fantastic time in Buenos Aires and will highly recommend this hotel.
It made our trip!
Staying at the convenient and chic Regal Pacific was a smart traveling decision. It was 3 blocks from the Galleria Pacificos shopping center and Calle Florida, walking distance to Puerto madero restaurants where we ate a few dinners. The hotel is highly secured, not a big-chained hotel, high quality breakfast buffet and good dinners.
Sorry for the long review, but hopefully this will help you make an informed choice.
The Regal Pacific was much more then I expected. I found the service on par with a Park Hyatt or a Four Seasons Hotel. The front desk personal whereas helpful as I have ever seen. They handled all my dinner reservations. For those of you who speak VERY little Spanish this type of service is 5 star in my book. This is a brand new hotel so the rooms are sparkling clean with pillow top mattresses and oversized bath towels (6 foot to be exact). Electronic curtains with all bedside controls. Wifi and broadband in all rooms. Electronic safes etc etc.
Do Not Expect ANy Nice View
I stayed in this hotel thinking that it was in Puerto Madero area (web page dont show exactly where it is), and it is not. I expected to have a nice view from my room as they show in the web page but the only room that has it is the master suite located in the top floor. Standart rooms only have two options, holiday Inn express´s back door or old buildings surroundings. Staff very polite and facilities shows that this is a stylish and all brand new hotel.Limited room service options. As you can see I got dissapointed only for the views. In this trip I stayed at the Melia Buenos Aires and the Meliá Recoleta Plaza too (read my comments)
Sophisticated & Modern!
One of B.A.'s Best! I stayed at this hotel twice during by vist to Argentina and both times found staff and rooms exceptional.
I love this hotel!
The newly opened Regal Pacific will soon take its rightful place as one of the top hotels in Buenos Aires. I have stayed in 4 of the hotels currently rated in the Top 10, and the Regal Pacific is superior.....
Rooms are nicely and very comfortably furnished, the baths are spacious, the staff is courteous and helpful, the wine bar is provides a decent number of choices at reasonable prices.....
I loved the bedside control panel to adjust lights, heat, and to open or close the drapes! See my more extensive review under Buenos Aires discussion....
