... hate her, she is still a huge part of Argentina’s history and it was very interesting to learn about her life. Based on the movie with Madonna, you would never imagine that she was hated by anyone. Then again, a Madonna movie probably should not have been my only source of knowledge. On another note, I decided to use my precious Evita $100 peso bill at the museum gift shop. It felt like this was the most fitting place to use it. Evita $100 peso ...
We began our day by meeting at Plaza Italia, which required a subte ride. When I was down in the subway, I wasn't sure which of the two to take-which direction to go-so I used my people skills to ask this really nice and helpful woman. She went to look at the map that I obviously didn't see whatsoever and then I understood. Every time I have a conversation with a native, I feel like I'm learning more and more each time and it's really helping me and immersing me. I got off the subway ...

I'm avoiding the obvious euphemism here so as not to offend either my mother or my younger readers...or indeed me when I read this back in a few years when I'll hopefully have grown up a bit more). So as a result of my British conditioning (and a general fear of any kind of formal dancing where I may look like a tit) I wasn't that fussed about experiencing Tango through any medium other than whilst sitting on my backside in a plaza, drinking a ...
... city we've been to that's on par with Paris for the sheer volume of Dog **** and **** all over the ******* place, and 2) It's rather uninteresting. We did, however, stop for a rest at a very beautiful park to decide "¿las docas O no las docas?". We decided the docks would probably look like a cross between Westfield London and Canary Wharf London so decided against it and instead opted for the lazier option of 'Kilkenny's', the Irish pub.
... played cards on the roof terrace and watched the sunset as we were gradually joined by a few other guests.
A few people were keen to go out for dinner, so we joined them and had another evening in Palermo with a meal followed by drinks in a small bar full of locals expertly dancing in couples, which was fun to watch. It was still a fairly late night, but we weren't half as late back to the hostel as our previous evening in Palermo.

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
