... of San Martin (the nations most favoured and important politician), we headed home to get ready to meet the rest of our tour group. Our group has a real mix of people of all different ages. A lot of them have been travelling together for 4 weeks already from Peru and know eachother pretty well- they filled us in on all their goings on and it sounds like we are in for a lot of ...
... passports are checked and stamped. A quick webcam photo of each of us and an electronic thumbprint, and we are at our gate...30 minutes before boarding time. After all that.
We use the time to collect ourselves, catch our breath, try to relax. Nathan has 12 Argentinean pesos left (about US$2), so he uses that plus one American dollar to buy a bottle of water so we'll have something to drink (and possibly refill) on the plane while ...
... but there are many one way streets, but no signs to say this is a one way street. There are lines to mark the lanes but the cars switch from lane to lane with what seems like little thought and often what should be two lanes becomes three as one car will drive on the centre line. There are many small motorcycles also, and they will rides in and out of traffic, along the lines and even up onto the sidewalk if they want to. It seems like chaos ...
... that this was our favorite meal up to this point in the trip.
After dinner we made our way to the Faena hotel. We figured we would arrive there about an hour early and walk around the hotel and have a drink before the show started. This hotel screams luxury and had a red theme carried throughout the hotel. (The name of the tango show we were going to see in the hotel was called "rojo" or "red" in spanish). When you walk in, you see a long thin red carpet ...
A trip to Buenos Aires wouldn't be compete without the obligatory tango show. There are so many options to chose from its difficult to know what's best. We opted for Cafe de los Angelitos with bottomless wine. There are options which include dinner but we heard it wasn't worth the money so we didn't bother. We really enjoyed the show. It only lasted 90 minutes but it was enough for us. We'd ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Melia Recoleta Plaza Buenos Aires
Watch out for the bugs!
We (family of 6 in 3 rooms) stayed at this Melia for 1 night in December on the way to Sao Paolo. Location is good for day time touring and shopping. Not so for nighttime walks, diner or people watching. It seems that this area of BA in on a downturn. Gentlemen's club just around the corner. Check-in could definitely be faster. Breakfast room is in the basement and typical of a highway motel. Biggest drawback: Bugs. 2 of our rooms had bug infestation. We did not realize this until we returned from diner past midnight. We had to switch 2 rooms at 1am. The hotel is aware of this and even offered to vacuum the bugs out of the ceiling. I will not stay there again!
Coming from a critical old queen (lower case), this hidden gem could be FABULOUS. There are some small flaws in the service, but Melia recoleta can be half the price of the Big Luxury Hotels and is better in some ways.
Enjoyed our stay at the Sol Melia Recoleta Plaza . . . .
We just returned from a very pleasant stay at the Sol Melia Recoleta Plaza. Our room was beautiful, and the hotel is in a wonderful location, right in Recoleta, within walking distance to many great parts of the city. The nice thing about this hotel was that it was classy and luxurious, but also smaller, more of a boutique hotel . . . .great service, and very friendly and helpful staff. There is also a spa on the top floor which was great for a little relaxation. Higher price than other hotels in BA, but great value and we certainly had a pleasant stay. I think for the service, location and style -- the value is good. And, I recommend this hotel whole-heartedly to anyone!
Ok, the hotel is nice, very good service, regular room.
But the bathroom is small, VERY UNCONFORTABLE !!!
I don't recommend !
Traveling without my husband, as part of a Buenos Aires tour, I had an apartment rented for me in the Recoleta, through our Tour Operator. The apartment proved to be a nightmare - drab, dirty, no amentities - whatsoever. Fortunately for me, The Recoleta Plaza Hotel was just steps away and within hours, I left my dreary apartment and wheeled my luggage to my new digs. What a find! The hotel is beautiful - marble floors, glass elevators, a large reception and lounge area for guests to mingle, an elegant bistro with great food; as well as a jazz club downstairs that doubles as the breakfast area in the mornings. Breakfast each day was a delight! Huge assortments of freshly baked pastries, fruit, cheeses and meats, cereals, yogurts, etc., as well as your choice of eggs, bacon, sausages, pancakes, etc.
No reservation, no pillows, no breakfast
Meliá Recoleta is a new, chic and very well located hotel in Buenos Aires. However I had some problems that made my weekend much less nice than it could be.
When I arrived they didn´t find my reservation (made at the Meliá site and CONFIRMED by e-mail). I asked for pillows offered on a pillow menu and there were NONE of the pillows offered.
In the morning after I was interrupted at breakfast by a lady from the hotel asking me and my husband to register at the front desk. However, we had register and also left our credicard number at the front desk at the time we checked in on the day before.
The only nice thing was a letter and a bottle of wine from the general manager apologising for all the inconvinience.
My boyfriend and I stayed at the Melia Recoleta Plaza for four nights in early April. I absolutely loved it and cannot wait to return one day.
My family and I have have just returned to Canada from a fantastic trip to Buenos Aires and we stayed in a new Melia hotel in the Recoleta area of the city.The location is superb for walking as the streets are tree-lined and are dotted with many interesting shops and restaurants.The hotel has only been open for 3 months so everything is clean and up to date.The rooms are large and all come with a lovely seating area.Some of the rooms even come with 2 flat screen TVs(one for the bed area and another in the sitting area).
Un excelente hotel
Estuvimos en este hotel en febrero. Es realmente un "boutique" hotel. Las habitaciones son bastante limpias e confortables. Los baños también son muy buenos. Esta ubicado en Recoleta, el mejor barrio de Buenos Aires, e donde es posible, todavía, caminar tranquilamente, mismo a altas horas de la madrugada. Mas, lo que nos impresiono mas fue lo staff. Gente muy amable e gentil. Recomendamos mucho este hotel.
Charming new Small hotel
Really a boutique hotel, all the personnel at your service, you ask for something and you get it. Polite, helpfull, corteous. Rooms with wonderful beds. Located in Buenos Aires´ best area Recoleta, you can walk safely, it is located very close to these top hotels (four seasons,Caesar Park,Hyatt and behind the Alvear Palace Hotel, so you can imagine the zone). Plenty options of restaurants nearby. Next time in Bs As no doubt about where I´ll stay
