In Microcentro, the heart of downtown Buenos Aires
There's so much to see and do in Microcentro that some visitors never leave this area when visiting Buenos Aires. It is the core of downtown, with wonderful shopping areas like Calle Florida, tourist attractions such as Colon Theater and the iconic Obelisk, entertainment venues, an interesting dining scene, and a wide array of hotels. It is also one of the few areas in Buenos Aires that is well connected via subway to the rest of the city.
The 562 Nogaro Hotel is a 136-room property set in a historic building near City Hall in bustling Microcentro. Interiors retain a touch of their original charm, but recent renovations have given the hotel a more contemporary feel. Basic rooms are comfortable with wood floors, minibars, and free Wi-Fi (though service is spotty). Bathrooms have shower/tub combos and bidets, but despite upgrades, rooms still show a bit of wear and tear and some have older tube TVs. The original windows open, but some rooms on lower floors can experience traffic noise from the street below. Breakfast is offered daily in the Salon Marsella and the atmospheric lobby bar serves light fare and drinks. The hotel has a fitness center -- though it's tiny -- and a business center for more reliable Internet.
